Any luck with contacting the seller? Sounds like you were scammed as MANY people are who buy used iPhones. Unless, and I hope not, you're trying to knowingly activate a stolen phone.

No help here, sorry.

Take it you've connected it to iTunes while holding the buttons for DFU? The screen may not reflect DFU mode but the device itself might be doing it.
