Question about Tamron TAMRON AF 28-300MM F/3.5 - 6.3 XR DI LD ASPHERICAL LENS

Need some assistance from you guys. I bought this lens online and when I got it, it does not mount on my Pentax K10D. The seller said that it would fit Pentax SLR cameras. Here are some photos of the lens. Anyone knows what's going on?

I hope there will be a solution to this.

The lens is available in many mounts- sounds like yours isn't a pentax, the seller was mistaken or lied?

Thanks for the reply.

I do understand that this lens comes in different mounts and the seller could possibly have been misinformed.

Below is a photo of the mount. Does this look like a Pentax mount to anyone?

NO, it's not a Pentax Mount.

Thanks for some of your responses guys. I'll be sending a message to that seller and hopefully get this situation resolved. I should have posted the photo at the forum prior to biding on the item. Lessons learned I guess.
