By giving you the Aug he warrented that it was fit for the purpose for which it was intended. If he did not know that the Aug was screwed up, than he was negligent and breeched the implied warrenty.
If he knew the Aug was pooched when he gave it to you his conduct could be classified as fraudulent.
On the facts you have given me I would say you should pursue the matter vigorously.
