This is the first time I meet a scammer on the internet. Guess I trusted people too easily.
To make a long story short, I went to digital point and paid a guy $270 for a pr 6 domains, which of course he didn't give me. I got scammed for the first time on the internet. And it is also not the smallest amount of money, so I cannot let it go easy.
At first, having told from a friend that Paypal does not take responsibility for online goods, and because I had been cheated and I wanted my money back, I just claimed that it was not an authorized payment (I feel very sick that I have to lie to get justice), but with no success. I submitted it again, but they said it wans't a non-authorized payment.
So I called them and without telling them that it was an online good, I manged to get their help me and put a claim for item not received. Currently it's awaiting the seller's response.
I really need to get my money back.
Can anyone with experience please help me?
I told the whole truth to Paypal, they seemed to be understanding.
The case is now pending final review.
I told them that at least they can't let this scammer keep on taking advantage of the Paypal system.
Will update on how it ends.
And from what it looks like many warriors are thinking that I'm trying to scam Paypal, but that is not the case anymore. I told them the whole truth and they seemed to understand.
Thanks again everyone for both criticism and encouragements. Good to see how many warriors want me to stay honest, proving that most warriors are honest people themselves. Also a lot of people told me that trying to lie is not a good choice, and that's why I told Paypal the truth.
WF is full of honest people, that is a great comfort to know.
So yeah, I thank you all for helping me make the right decision.
Paypal does not favor buyers or sellers, but they do persecute scammers and cheaters.
Even if I don't get my money back, I'll do everything possible to make sure this cheater can not go on and scam another person.
I hope this experience can be of help to all of us for future transactions.
p.s. I have all the chat logs and pms and I'm sure I can prove that the guy is a cheater if they ask me to, I even have a pm of him admitting to have cheated me and not wanting to refund.
Hopefully the truth will prevail.
