you got scammed, contact the loca lauthorities at the location where you got scammed.....If you sent a money order, send the local authorities a copy of the money order,check or whatever you used.....You had to send the money to an address, use that to contact the authorities. good luck, dont give up

I use to not like Paypal now I will only use Paypal myself. If they wont take Paypal run the other way unless you know the seller. No guarantee with anything but at least you have some protection with Paypal. All this scamming makes it hard to trust anyone anymore.

I insist on PayPal any more. Somebody using K9AXI (SK) just ripped me off and I am confident PayPal will return my funds. They have in the past.
