    Open Paypal dispute and you will get your money back no problem even if they left eBay.

    The first thought that popped into my mind when I read this was that the eBay seller sold a stolen iPad and ran off once they got rid of it.

    How do you want to do that on an iPad :P? They only have an IMEI when it is a cellular version.

    It's irrelevant regardless, seeing as how they bought it over eBay and can't really check anything.

    Sorry OP, but you likely have a stolen device and I'm going to lock this topic since GBAtemp is not the place to discuss how to get stolen property working again. I realise that you may be an innocent buyer, but the only thing you can really do is to try to get hold of the seller and get a refund or attempt to contact the owner or possibly the police since you're in possession of stolen property.

    I forgot
    That's not necessarily true. Most of the time, these are devices simply sold to third party resellers where the original owner forgot or didn't know or couldn't disable the iCloud lock. Usually third party resellers buy iPads with broken screens and such for cheap, replace the screen, and then sell it off as refurbished without bothering/caring it has an iCloud lock.

    It's a small minority of stolen iDevices that are sold via places like eBay or Swappable or whatever. These days, if someone is selling a stolen iDevice, they replace the mobo so the serial number can't be blocked or detected as stolen.
