So far I've contacted the seller only as it is only day one, not contacted eBay yet. He is encouraging to pick another number and accepted the responsibility of not checking the number before postage, not interested in any other numbers so full refund is what I will aim for if it goes down that route.
I would prefer to get the number if possible. I felt the O2 advisor on the phone just wanted to dismiss me rather than escalate the issue too. I understand there are different parties involved... But would like to see if there is any possibility of obtaining the number since I've got the sim card and packet... Worth a shot.
P.S thank you for the fraud advice part by the way, will go through it now.
Surely this is as simple as the item you bought is not as described, so you should have no problem getting your money back from ebay?
To be fair, this has absolutely nothing to do with O2.
You purchased an item through Ebay and it's the seller you need to be contacting. They should be offering you a refund. If you don't want another number and he doesn't refund then take up the matter with Paypal.
*The Game Is On*
I agree to an extent but it's a O2 product and O2 service. I have the O2 physical sim card and packet so surely O2 can look into the history of what exactly has happened?
My aim is to obtain the number if there are any possibilities. That's my first priority which is clearly stated in previous messages.
If this can not be done then yes I will go down the refund route but I am going by my order of preference.
There is every chance that the number is amongst a batch of stolen sim cards which have been decommissioned or possibly illegally obtained.
Whatever the reason, it's down to the seller to make recompense
For legal reasons O2 won't divulge that information to you
