What do you do when you've been scammed on eBay?

I am concerned that a CD I've committed to buy on eBay is a counterfeit. The item's identification number is 4881752639
. My concerns were raised after I read some of the seller's feedback from buyers
and consequently the feedback the seller has left for them
. Also, some buyers
have gone so far as to create warning pages
for others. There's even damning comments
on Znooq's blog about the exact same item I've bought.

So, what should I do about this? The item hasn't arrived yet. Can I somehow cancel my order? Of course I'm aware it has only cost me a few dollars for this mistake I've made. And yes I should have delved deeper through the seller's feedback when I first decided to bid on the item. I admit I'm at fault. But what the heck are scammers like this doing on eBay anyway? Surely eBay has had enough time to remove this seller in particular? I have sent this exact query to eBay too. What are your thoughts? It's the first time I've been scammed on eBay. And here I was thinking that it'd never happen to me. I mean I'm usually so cautious when buying anything from there.
