indeed! at least you have somewhere you can sell off the bits :)
tis a shame though. but you could have forked out a lot more, i'd make sure you get some sort of a claim in, it is wrongly advertised which i assume is the sole responsibility of the seller.

Rear dropouts look very similar to Kona aluminium jobbies , might be worth rooting through Kona catalogue. Have a look at the Ku frame in the for sale section.

I wouldn't spend much time doing that, it isn't a kona. (seat tube extension above the top tube is too short)

Cant help you with a serial number as this was a while ago when the world was warm and fair. I built that one out of an old Merlin frame and some spare decals - I sold it for £60 as a Merlin 'Pubjumper'.

Doesnt look like the same frame to me. Pannier/mudguard boss looks like its proud of the dropout in the latter.
