Its sad man. Have you tried pm'ing him here on bhw?
I thought that OP's post was a blank message. Change your font color mate. Its hard to see your proof on that color...
I would have dumped the noob at: Paypal Flagging RED!
next time be more careful!
favoured - with the greatest of re-spect you just learned rule 1 of bhw
never ever ever - buy from a user who just joined bhw
the user you payed only joined the forum this month .
the majority of bhw scams are by low post - low rep - new users -
always take your buys from users who have a sales thread
not from an unknown new user.
1) Never send payment as Gift.
2) Avoid dealing with New members with little or no iTrader history and prefer using BST's.
If you follow above 2 instructions,risk of getting scammed is minimum.
so.. it looks like you sent out a ton of unsolicited PMs, and you got a reply from a new member that's been on the forum for less than 24 hours at that point.
you then paypal'd him $175 as a gift, and he hasn't logged back on since then.

there's really not a whole lot mods can do for you in a situation like this. if you fail to exercise at least the bare minimum amount of due diligence when making transactions over the internet, stuff like this tends to happen.
this guy tried to burn me for $30 for usa fb likes but i sent the money as a service to his friend after i would not send it to him cause his acct was flagged. i am now disputing the payment after 0 communication from him and i will get it back. as others stated never send any payment as a gift for services to be performed.
i get lots of gift payments for services - cuts down on buyer fees for the buyer
but always be careful with who you do it with
