The first scam of my life - what to do?
I bought a website from this guy named named Sorin on Flippa. Unfortunately, the transaction did not go through flippa because we started talking on MSN and before I knew it, I asked for his PayPal address. Oh, by the way, it was a $700 website.
After realizing that he lied to me about the website (initially claimed that it generates $3,000 a month of revenue (of that, $1000 profit) - I know, too good to be true, I fell for it, learned the lesson - and that the website has bunch of advertisers, while it has none; plus, I need to pay $500 more to members), I have kindly asked him to refund me the money I sent him just an hour ago. Note that the domain hasn't even been transferred yet.
He refused. I took an attitude of saying that he cannot refuse something like that, and asked him for a refund once again. He again refused.
Now, I don't have the money in my account and I don't even have the domain transferred to my account either.
I called PayPal and they said that they can't offer any kind of protection against intangible goods. I filed a dispute, which I quickly escalated to a claim, only to be notified of the aforementioned by PayPal within minutes of my claim submission.
What am I supposed to do now? The seller is from Romania and his English is very poor. I'd report him to the law enforcement, but somehow I don't really trust the Romanian government (no offense Romanian citizens). The last resort is to contact some EU-powered institution (Europol, ECJ) and see if there's anything they could do.
Any tips, advice or anything that could help, please do let me know. Thanks.
yes, I am....
