    If you bought it on eBay it probably is a pirated product anyhow and even if it worked now it won't in the future.  Almost all eBay purchases of software are pirated.  Give a link to the seller and we can probably tell you more.

    Please read that thread and submit a report, we can then give you information in regards to your key and install. If it is not installed yet then there is no way for us to verify. If you have not installed it yet, then I suggest you read the listing, if it does not say it is geographicly locked I would suggest you file a claim with paypal for the item not being as described. If it is geographicly locked then I doubt you would be able to activate it. However, I have never heard of W7 being geographicly locked to the US and Latin America.
