good thing you got your money back, but this is what you can do with the racquet to fix it and I've done it to a few of my much worse broken racquets.
You get a hot glue gun and glue it back together so it looks like it's in its original form, and then you put it as a display piece in your room. If it were genuine, I would have also salvaged the grommets, base grip and butt cap.

since 1-2 years i fix my broken rackets and also some of my trainingspartners with carbonmaterial wich is used for modelboats and orthopädik protheses.
The racket will weight after fixing ca. 2-4 gramms more than before, so the handling is a little bit difference than before. If you take one more gripband, the handling is not far from before.
The first picture were my first tests and for that very sick. My latest fixes are much thinner.
Here is my repairing-manual:
It is written in german, but you can see pictures and maybe take a translator.
What you have to know:
Fixing rackets is not for saving money. For me playing with this rackets gives me a feeling of: "I have made fire by myself" as Tom Hanks in Cast Away.
It is recommend to string by yourself. Otherwise it makes no sense a cost more money than bying new rackets.

maybe you can find some kind of a carbon rod to stick in the shaft and then superglue the rest
