Question: no serial number!

So I bought a 2009 MacBook refurbished off ebay for change really, and everything works great. I needed some help from apple for something so I went to go chat online and it asked for my serial number... it says "unavailable" in the about this Mac section and under reports' and theres no serial number printed on the bottom of the laptop itself either ! help!

MacBook, macOS High Sierra (10.13.3)

If it is, it could be expensive to repair, and that is if the parts are still available. I have to say, I would never buy technical products from Ebay .. but the deed is done now. It will be interesting to learn Apple's opinion of the machine.

Do let us know how you get on.

Thank you for the help star.
