I was looking to buy a used Nexus 5 for a nominal price from eBay, but the phone is locked to a carrier that I don't want to switch to. Is there someone on the forum who can provide unlock codes? I tried doing Google searches, but all of them return unlocking guide for the bootloader. Has anyone unlocked their Nexus 5?

It comes unlocked. It isn't locked to any carrier.

Are you sure? The guy who has it says he bought it from carrier, and it's locked to it.

This has come up many times. As the others said, All N5's, even those sold by carriers, are unlocked.

I would use the seller's ignorance against him to get a better price. Tell him it's going to cost you $40 to unlock it and that he's going to have a tough time selling it locked to a carrier. You'll take it if he knocks off the cost of unlocking
