None of us have enough facts to accuse the seller of fraud. The seller could have been led to believe the camera was new. This could have been a mistake. Chances are this can be easily straightened out. Ebay at least when Paypal is used is a good system.

Exactly, there aren't enough facts.  It could very well be a "new" camera in the sense that the seller bought it from Amazon, didn't use it, and because it was past the return period, decided to sell it.  That makes it new in the sense of being unused, but not new in the sense of the buyer being the original purchaser and so not entitled to warranty coverage.
