Might have bought a stolen camera?

How would you play this? I think a camera I bought (and paid for with Paypal) may be stolen. The sellers name does not match the name of the copyright owner (saved in the camera). I have tracked down the person's name in the same city the camera came from...

but have not contacted him to see if his camera (which I now have) was in fact stolen. (It is a very new model with very few shutter activations) so now that I see the names don't match I am suspicious. It was purchased through a forum (not eBay). Is there a way to get my money back if it turns out to be stolen or would I be out if it turned out to be stolen and I returned it? It is possible that the camera is legit and was sold for a friend but my spidey-sense is tingling. This was a $500+ purchase (not that it matters ethically). Do I have Paypal protection for things not purchased on eBay? How would you play this?
