    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    You will need to get in touch with the previous owner and have him deactivate the Find My IPad feature on the iPad. It is the only way you will be able to get this iPad working again.

    We are now beginning to see more and more members posting with this same issue.

    For a little more info, look here

    I wouldn't trust any 3rd party software that says they can bypass this. They just either want your money or want to add spyware on your computer. The only way to deal with this is what Leelai said that you need to find a way to contact the original owner and see if they can help you otherwise you have a brick on your hands.
