The present disclosure describes various embodiments of methods and systems for identifying a device that is being offered for purchase from a user at a kiosk. In some embodiments, the kiosk queries a database to determine or corroborate the type of equipment being offered for purchase based on an unique identifier such as an IMEI/MEID number or a TAC code for the device. In one embodiment the database may be a database created by a governing organization that associates IMEI/MIED numbers with particular equipment types. In another embodiment, a database stores records of transactions involving particular types of equipment and TAC numbers associated with the types of equipment used in the transaction.
