Hey I'm sorry to hear about that, unfortunately once a console is banned it's pretty much impossible to get it unbanned, I know you said they told you all sales are final but thats something they should've checked before purchasing it and definitely before selling it, you make have to try to speak to someone in management

Doesn't sound right that they wont give you a refund.

If they were selling you a banned console then they should have told you. If they didn't tell you then they have sold you a faulty device. It's faulty because for most people an xbox that cant connect to live is useless.

Surely there must be laws where you live against selling a faulty device?

In the UK we could contact trading standards for things like this. Isn't there are similar organisation you could contact in your country?

Unfortunately, this happens all the time.

I've bought banned xbox's from even Gamestop, sometimes.. they just don't check. However, The pawn shop shouldn't be sticking you with the banned console. That is totally messed up business. You could contact the BBB on them. You should take the xbox up there and demand the refund or a different console.
