Yes, that is why it's best to beware when you buy things
sometimes it's innocently done without our knowledge but
things can have Serial numbers and be searched.1
Items you know are stolen is at least here in norway illegal, and is considered fencing.
Same goes for items that comon sense should tell you likely is stolen (like expensive stuff beign sold cheap).
But if it seems legit, and is sold in a way that's legit... no. It's not your fault for it, and while it's wrong to buy stolen items, you can't really be blamed for it.0
I think it os1
No it's not. Because you are not the one who stole those things.1
Well someones gonna buy it eventually might as well be you.1

Lol. No. I don't think so. You didn't steal those items and you made a legit transaction.1
Well... if you don't know that the items are stolen, then no, you're not at fault. But if you do know, then you're indirectly assisting in the theft when purchasing it. So, it could be immoral to some. Of course, the bigger crime is the theft itself.1
It's wrong if you know its stolen. It's not wrong if you dont know its stolen.2
Yes, because that way you contribute to more stealing. The ones who sell them, see profit and continue robbing to get earn more.1
No 'cause you don't know that it's stolen.2
It is wrong.1
