1-800-RU-LEGIT for MS Anti-piracy hotline if you have this guy's personal information and report him to Ebay.

You should leave some negative feedback then. I noticed you haven't left anything of the such.

Auction was similar to? Why not post the actual auction, I'd contact the MS hotline, give them the information from the shipping box and his Ebay information, then let them handle it. Contest whatever payment method you used, post negative feedback and advise Ebay to see what they can do.

I'd post neg feedback AND report his Ebay ID to the Anti-Piracy division.
Selling pirated stuff is really drawing the line...

First clue was that it does not include the box.
