You could always try claiming your £50 back under ebay buyer protection.
source of answer Selling Product Key from MSDN/Technet and or without COA
Well, i just read through the thread above and it said they can only be used for MSDN software. This was all i needed.
I have just asked the seller for a full refund, if he don't, then i will be taking this to Ebay and then Microsoft.
To sell a used key is one thing, but to sell one that is going to be no good. Thats below the belt.
Thanks guys, looks like i will now have to buy another key from M$ now,
Let this be a lesson to anyone trying to buy 7 cheap on Ebay, it will most definatly be too good to be true.
