    My friend showed me this trick and I've successfully used it a few times.

    Figure out the name of the theme using this site:
    http://whatwpthemeisthat.com
    or
    By right clicking on page -> view page source
    ctrl F -> "theme"
    to locate theme in page source

    Search for "get wp themename" (without the quotations) to find where theme is sold
    Look on theme's page for examples of theme in use, go to the page
    add "wp-content/uploads" to the end of the sites domain
    This will take you to the uploads folder
    If they have it in the uploads folder, you will be able to download it

    You can try adding "wp-content/uploads" to the site from the start, but some sites won't have the theme in uploads folder. By finding where the theme is sold, you can have several sites to try the trick on and usually one of them will have it.

    Yes, this trick works most of the times. But, be careful, since the call backs can hurt your site. Make sure you check everything before you put those themes on to your site.

    Won't work :) BTW to find out the name and the author's URL of the theme, simple open the style.css (you'll find it's URL in the page source) and look for Theme Name and Theme URI values there.
