    @redking128 good evening and welcome to the forum. IMO it looks like Monstera adansonii.

    Since true Monstera obliqua go for thousands of dollars for tiny plants, and Monstera adansonii like yours are common plants worth maybe $15, you may be entitled to a large partial refund if you paid very much for it.

    @redking128 Tom has a very good point there. Did you pay over the odds for it?
