Its not always the business at fault

This won't work. They will find someone to buy them, unfortunately. Many times phones are sold by the original owner and then the owner files a fraudulant insurance claim or fails to pay or honor their cell phone contract. Both of these make that phone unusable by being reported lost or stolen and blacklisted. The customer has gotten top dollar for a useless phone and then pays their $50-$150 deductible and gets a new phone and has extra cash to spend. Those people need to be held responsible as well! I even contacted Asurion (cell phone insurance provider) and they pretty much said they don't have time to check for insurance fraud.

But if the business has a copy of the reciept they looked at then they can't be at fault.

No one keeps their receipts, and receipts can be forged anyway.
