Purchased Used 40D Problem

Hi All,

I've recently bought a used 40D.

Looked in good condition when I got it.

Before getting it I asked the seller whether it had any visible marks on the LCD's.

He replied "none, unless you look with a magnifying glass"

There are 4 quite LARGE cleat scratches on the back !
The camera doesn't connect to my PC correctly
It also has over 94,000 actuations on it.

I've contacted the seller to inform him of my dissatisfaction.

As the item isn't as described, working properly and has so many actuations on it.

Is it unreasonable for me to find it strange that; someone who has had a 40D since new and now owns a 7D DOESN'T know how to fid the number of actuations?

I have also contacted ebay, the seller has listed the item as "Returns Accepted"

They have said to wait a copy of days and if he doesn't reply to raise a Case to resolve.

Somethig I don't really want to do, but will have no choice if no reply is received,

Do you think my case is reasonable?
How long can 40D shutters last for? (I've seen anywhere between 1500-120000)
