Thanks.  I have already shipped it back (before I got a chance to read these replies).  When I was reading other forum responses earlier, I read similar horror stories from cameras bought on Ebay.  I would have never thought to ask the seller about cigarette odor before, but now I would definitely inquire before making any purchases.

You could have used alcohol based wet wipes to clean it off. After wiping it couple of times, it definitely reduces the odor.
