Clean ESN, iPhone 4, linked to another account? lost/stolen?

Hi! I'm very new to all this stuff and all I really thought I'd need to know about buying used phones on ebay was that it had to have a clean ESN. This one claimed to be clean and ready to activate with Verizon. It even gave the MEID number. So I went ahead and checked it and then proceeded to buy it but when I went to activate it, they try calling *228 or whatever and it goes to the My Verizon payment plan thing. So it's either still linked to another account or on the lost or stolen list or SOMETHING. I'm just wondering if there's anyway I could unlink the phone from the previous owners account or get it to activate so I don't need to settle a dispute with Ebay or paypal. HELP! Thanks so much Smile

MEID - A10000257A5EBA
Serial Number - C8QGTSW2DPNG

You should have checked the ESN before buying it.

You may be able to use an ESN cleaning service, so google "Verizon ESN Cleaning" and look for one you can get the best and fastest deal.
