Benefiting from stolen goods


One may not knowingly benefit from the dishonesty of others.

For example, one may not purchase an item that he knows to be stolen. Further, one may not purchase anything from, or accept a gift from, a person who is a known thief, lest he unknowingly accept benefit from stolen property.

(Code of Jewish Law Choshen Mishpat 369:1, 3)

Have a great day,
