Used Phone Became blacklisted after.. 2 years ?

We bought a used phone, worked fine for over 2 years.. until recently, it stopped working, turns out it got blacklisted.

 

I called customer support, said unlock would take 10-14 days - that was well over a month ago.

 

Still reports as "blacklisted"

 

I contacted original owner and they provided me the boost mobile phone No.

 

It's Moto G plus (5thgen) - not top tier phone, not worth much, but still useful to keep as spare.

 

I haven't called back - hoping agent here can help expedite the unlock.

 

THANKS!

Appears only way to resolve this is having PIN for when phone was set up.

 

Avoid buying USED Boost Mobile PHONES unless they include PIN for the account, which seems like major security flaw.
