Do I have to refund a phone that I sold on Facebook?

Asked on Nov 28th, 2017 on Contracts - Florida
More details to this question:
The situation started when I announced my iPhone 6 on Facebook and I claimed it was unlocked. I have had many friends going back-and-forth to Brasil and the phones they shipped from the USA would always work there as long as they were unlocked. There was a lady interested in the phone and asked me if she could be able to sell the phone to her friend in Brasil and if it would work. I said - since the phone is unlocked, you should be able to use it in brasil. I called T-Mobile and they made sure it was unlocked. At the day we met for her to purchase the phone, we went to the Apple store for an employer to reassure the phone was unlocked, and he said it was, that she would be able to use it in another country. The lady took it to Brasil but the phone did not work. Now she is threatening me to give her the money back after 3 months of the phone being purchased by her. Do I have to refund her the money? Did I do something illegal?

No way to tell what you did or not as far as legality. Its possible if you promised it would work and it didn't or its simply not "unlocked" then you may have issue to deal with. This is the peril of selling things on the internet.
