Ebay scam-Sound Forge


I was recently scammed on Ebay. I bought a copy of Sound Forge for $99.00 (yes, I should have known better), and the auction stated it was full English version with registration number. As it turned out, it was a disk containing a copy of demo program in Russian, with a "crack" program to get around the registration process.
And, the program did not run correctly. I have since bought a legit copy, and it works fine.
After filing an insurance claim, Ebay wants "documentation from a relevant subject expert (on their letterhead) to support your claim that the item is not as stated in the eBay listing."
So, are there any "relevant subject experts" who would be willing to take a look at PDF's of the auction, and PDF's of the CD I received, and help me with this claim?
Thanks, Steve Porter
