There's corrosion buildup on the contacts from the battery to the circuit board. Depending on how bad the rust and corrosion is, it may be a permanent thing.

Whenever a phone gets we you should NEVER try and put electricity to it, it just continues to fry it. Always take the battery out ASAP and let it air dry for 3-4 days - 1 week depending on how bad it got wet.

Try taking out the battery and blow-drying where jack goes. Keep air on high fan and heat on cool. Also blow dry where battery goes.

Cell phone battery loses charge as soon as i stop charging it

Surely you have a right to a refund or exchange if it is faulty. Check with your local Trading Standards or Consumer Protection. Tell the shop you are doing this, they might change their ideas.

Remove battery, clean contacts between battery and phone, also be sure to use an original Motorola charger instead of one of those "universal" type chargers.Hope this helps!

Check the cable connector (at the bottom of the phone) for debris or corrosion on the connector contacts. Use rubbing alcohol if necessary.
