File a Significantly Not As Described claim with EBay immediately. Keep all
the packaging.

Lodge a claim through PayPal. Just because it is not a shop does not mean
that the seller is not a business. In fact even if the seller is registered
as a private seller they may still be a business. A seller who buys goods to
resell at a profit is legally a business seller.
