Default IMEI question

Please Login to Remove!

I'm trying to sell my storm, and a potential buyer asked for the IMEI number. I was told not to give this out because of potential cloning, but in the "buy and sell facts" it says the buyer should ask for the IMEI. I'm confused, by giving this out, can it cause potential cloning risks? What should be my main concern? Thanks in advance.

No, the buyer needs that to verify the device is clean and not stolen.

I would recommend any buyer asking that before a purchase.
