Send it back for a refund.
It is illegal to sell or own a barred phone as it will probably be claimed on an insurance policy and belong to the insurance company now.

A bit late now but never ever buy a phone from sellers you don't know. Sadly places like Ebay or Gumtree have many unscrupulous scammers who do this sort of thing to make money out of the unsuspecting public.

I hope you get a refund... but if it's an independent seller I suspect you wont.

You need to report it to ebay (if bought from there) as the seller might be at it on a regular basis. Even better if you paid by Paypal as you can open a case and get a refund anyway.
