Bought a defective item, buyer won't issue refund.

I bought a Canon BG-E8 Battery Grip from a person named Xiang Zhang off Kijiji. The grip powers up fine, however the dial is not functioning properly.
Here is a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWN5hcZE ... hg&index=1
In the video, the dial is not working neither on the body nor battery grip. The shutter button is fine, as the zoom, preview etc. However when I take the grip off everything is working fine.
I called the seller, and he said that it's not his fault and there's nothing he can do. I know I should've checked, but he says he was in a rush and every item I've bought until this point were working perfectly fine so I felt rest assured. He also has a website up with his cell phone number (which he called me with) and postal code. What are my actions from this point forward? I can easily have a friend of mine arrange a meet up with him and meet him asking for my money back.

It depends on the person, I sold a video camera to one guy through Kijiji and after a few months he called me and said that the video camera is recording in PAL mode instead of NTSC, the one that we use here in North America. So I gave him back the money, it's my fault for not realizing the mode.

Sorry JAC I don't check this section often, what was the image you linked? This man is honestly a crook, I'm probably not the only person who fell into his bs.

Also when I Google mapped that postal code, I managed to find his car on the drive way on Google maps. I am not for sure it's his, but the make and color matches. It's 135 Grenbeck Dr
