    You cannot do nothing with the iphone without the iCloud password. Get your money back from the "seller".

    No there isn't. If the seller can't or won't help you get it unlocked, ask for a refund. If they refuse file a claim with eBay. It's all you got at this point.

    Sounds to me that it wasn't his phone and that's an excuse. I'd return it and as said before ask for a refund or file a complaint. Next time when buying a used Apple device, one of the first questions you gotta ask is: "Is find my iPhone turned off?"

    I'd also recommend you stopping in the market section of this forum, many people selling devices, serious sellers with good reputation/intention.

    Good luck!
