I'm having trouble following. GoDaddy is definitely the current registrar. Are you saying GoDaddy must have auctioned it to someone else when it expired even though I had already bought it through them?It depends on whether it was exclusively listed as an auction or for sale. Some registrars will auction expired domain names. There is a grace period where the registrant of a domain name can still renew the domain name.
Never mind what the registrar says. Look up the domain name's history, day by day. Did it, at any time, belong to someone other than what the registrar says it did?
Does it matter?
GoDaddy account number and email address about a week or so after I made the purchase. I check with GoDaddy and they said that was standard operating procedure so I replied with my info.
I have to ask, why did you deal with the SELLER when GoDaddy was your point of sale?
Although if your account password is 123456 or something that simple you open yourself up to unauthorized access which has happened before.

"The seller sold the domain after it had already expired" It's a fact that a domain which is in arrears for payment cannot be transferred by the person in arrears. Though, you would think that GoDaddy, as a registrar, should have been able to identify that situation before allowing the auction.
