Default Directcanada sells used CPU?

Hi, im not sure where to post it but here it goes. Yesterday i opened up my phenom ii processor. There is a heatsink mark on the processor. On the sides, it looks like the cpu has been burnt or melted. (I'll post that tonight.) When ever i tried to play games, it gives me BSOD. Anything suggestion what i should now? I dont want to waste my money on broke cpu.
EDIT: heres the video. CPU - YouTube

Get on the horn with them. That's pretty ridiculous.

Call them, they can't sell you something used that was listed as new.

Okay, I'm finally home and I'm going to answer all the questions. Yes it WAS seal. But you can see a heatsink mark on the processor. The guy who secretly refurbished this didn't clean it with alcohol. On the sides, it has these marks which I'm going to post a video on youtube to let you guys see it.

Yeah, I also lost alot of my data because I thought it was the OS's fault for giving me BSOD and beeping errors. I tried it with my old processor and it worked fine.
