    Login, and under the "My Account" tab is a sub-section called "Resolution Center"

    There you can file a dispute about the transaction.

    Not always, you should definitely file a claim with your local PD as well as with paypal, that way they can harass paypal about it and let you get back to business. It also gives paypal a lot more incentive to deal with it if theirs a legal claim already filed.

    Intangible goods scams are tough to recover from on Paypal. If you have info on the other party, save everything you got for possible litigation.

    Head to PayPal, click on your recent payment and file a dispute. Once filed, after several days the seller did not respond you can then escalate up for a claim.

    Just as a heads up, IF he planned this well then he will have removed his bank account from pp, or just emptied his bank account and then there will be nothing for you or them to retrieve.

    You can't win PayPal dispute for non-tangible goods. Feel sorry for you.
