    I wouldn't touch it with a 20 foot pole. Probably stolen. You would need the ID information.

    Hmmm, wonder why its so "cheap". Maybe the seller knows something you dont - like that its stolen and hell make a few bucks offloading it as an iPod, when, in fact, its just a paperweight.

    You can DFU this, but it may require the Apple ID and password from the iCloud account it is locked to in order to complete activation

    I wouldn't buy it if I was you, most likely stolen. I don't think you can unlock it because the 5 unlike prior models have better security features especially if they has at least iOS 7 on it. Save your money boxing day sale is right around the corner or just wait till say January, I'm sure they would have better discounts plus you would have a warrantee to fall back on if anything happens. I never buy second handed electronics but thats just me , I like the security of a warrantee.
