[Q&A] How do i unlock my device? (PLEASE HELP ME) *This device is locked*

I previously added a thread where i asked for help, because my Note 7 had an error (Provision keeps stopping). So i managed to fix it flashing MIUI 12, but now i have a problem with this screen that appears saying "This device is locked" and that i need a password to activate it. In the previous thread i said that my phone is an used device, i bought it from facebook marketplace, and i know that i need to contact with the previous user if i want to activate it.. The problem is that i suspect that this phone is stolen. In the "Activate this device" screen, appears a number with 4 digits censored, and the seller's number doesn't match with any of the digits. That might not say 100% that the phone is stolen, but he does not even answer one of my calls, same with the messages, he practically dissapeared.
Is there anything i can do to unlock my phone? Please, i live in Venezuela, and i worked almost a year to buy a good phone. I don't want to feel like i threw my money into the trash.

If there is a solution to this problem, anyone, please let me know.

While I can sympathise with your position, removing the lock on a stolen device isn't the answer. This is exactly what the feature is supposed to do..

Then what do i do? How do i even return the phone to the original owner? If it is really a stolen phone.

The idea is that if you know you cannot use a stolen device, you are less likely to steal it in the first place.
I'm sorry but I think you will need to chalk this one up as a learning experience - you can't remove the lock without *at least* knowing the account that it is bound to
