Whoa man, hold up here.
I know how it feels when you're just starting out and looking for advice and a bunch of people tell you you're doing it wrong, and it feels like you're being judged and attacked, but you're not. I promise.
And as for this statement here, you are just plain mistaken, my friend! I myself have had several experiences purchasing from the really nice people here on TPT, and any time it arrived subpar, the seller was super kind and considerate and re-sent the product free of charge!
Just chill out, tuck away the chip on your shoulder, and it'll all work for the best :]

It's not more expensive to do so than it is to illegally import plants.
Your best bet is to file an eBay/PayPal dispute with the company you bought from, get your money back and then use those funds to buy moss here on the forum. You'll not only get a larger quantity but it won't be dead when it arrives. An added bonus: It won't be an illegal importation.
Since you're new to the hobby, there's an obviously learning curve and you'll recover from the moss mistake quickly. We're attempting to guide you in the right direction so you get what you want, spend less money getting it and experience as little frustration as possible.
