Actually, I bet I know what happened. Someone else on here mentioned that they had one in which the wireless did not work. They bought from a guy on ebay who sold about 500 Kindles (NEW - SEALED). Turns out (supposedly) a truck full 'o Kindles got robbed, and Amazon probably turned the wireless off on those.
Yours could be one of those that was stolen but remotely registered. Ask them to deregister it and give them a link to the seller you bought from.

When you buy a Kindle from Amazon it ships already registered to the purchaser's account. If it is resold or given as a gift it has to be deregistered and then registered to the new account.

Can you connect to Whispernet with the Kindle? If so, you can unregister it right from the Kindle.
Then you can register it to your account.
Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence.
