purchased phone that was later reported stolen/lost, AT&T blacklisted but offers no help?

Iphone was purchased locally and reported stolen after about two weeks..... I contacted at&t, however they respond only with, since you did not buy it from us we wont help you..... why will they not contact the original owner..... ? Even to return the phone? Is there anything I can do with the imei to track this information? Maybe it was a mistake? How can I find out any information?

You got scammed. You need to be more careful before buying a phone. AT&T can't help you because they're not the ones who scammed you.

Only the person who blacklisted it can remove it.  Since the seller probably intentionally scammed you, your only option is go after him/her for a refund.
