I've been looking at buying some used equipment. I've noticed some ads seem a little fishy, like on Ebay there's a Shindaiwa blower for sale by 2 different people with the exact same description, and I don't mean just the manufacturer specs, so that's a red flag to me that one or the other might be a scam. But how do I know if a piece of equipment is stolen? Is there a centralized place where stolen equipment serial numbers are recorded? Do dealers have this info? I really want to make sure that anything I buy is legitimate. Other than the seller having the original sales receipt and owner's manual, is there any other way to tell if they are the rightfull owner? I thought about putting this in the stolen equipment section, but there's not much traffic there.
