Unlock the AT&T iPhone

I purchased a used iPhone online from eBay. 

The seller mentioned that the iPhone is unlocked, as seen in the original listing below snapshot.

But I found the iPhone is locked, as in the below image from iPhone info.

Also, it cannot be unlocked because it is not fully paid off, as in the below snapshot from AT&T company.

I know that the seller must pay off the iPhone to AT&T to allow the unlock, But he is out of the USA now, and he offered me a partial refund to enable me to pay off the iPhone.

I need to know exactly how much I need to pay to order a partial refund from the seller?

Sorry, only the original owner can pay off the phone. You can not pay it off nor will ATT tell you how much is owed.

The seller lied.  If the seller has the money to offer you a partial refund, let him/her use that money to pay it off (but they likely won’t).  Get your money back via eBay.
