Question: Activation locked

Anyway to bypass activation lock? Bought an iPad off of Craig’s list and it’s worked fine , all of a sudden it locked me out? All I can think of is that the people I bought it from called and said it was stolen or something because I have no way in it? Their Apple ID is still in it

iCloud: Activation Lock - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT201365 - This is a security feature, in part to deter re-selling of stolen devices.

Turn off Find My iPhone Activation Lock (formerly: Activation Lock: Removing a device from a previous owner’s account) - https://support.apple.com/HT201441 - If an activation lock was put on a device, only the owner of the account that applied the lock can remove it.

Get them to remove it or return the device for a refund.
