    This iPad is a brick. You bought a stolen or lost device. The passcode can't be bypassed. Cancel the sale if you can. Otherwise you'll just have to sell it for parts since you won't be able to gain access to it.

    No problem. Glad you could get out of it on time. It's an Apple theft deterrent that's only been in place since 2013.
