    Commas (",") are not your enemy. Use them.
    I'd suggest you stick to the first story, nobody will believe you if you change stories now.

    Thats what I was thinking, but the first is faking that the claim was unauthorized, if I do that with the bank it'll be considered fraud and i could get into legal trouble if they found oout i was lying!

    If it doesn't involve much money, I would just let it go. It's safer that way.

    Yeah, if it's not a lot.

    didn't understand his first post though with blog? where you buying on flippa? where you buying ad space? blog post?

    i was going to suggest to try and get the blog owners details. Might make this a little easier for you.

    I was buying a tumblr blog, and it was 750$ so its kind of a lot of money, so I was wondering wether or not to keep the story, so if i should risk the legality or change the story to the true one.

    Can you not do a bit homework and try and track down the scammer?

    I got scammed too a couple days ago and I know how bad that sucks... just get the person's info and report them for fraud.

    $750 for a tumblr blog? Was it making pancakes too? Well, anyway, I think you should go for the truth as a last resort. It's no point in risking both your money and your freedom.
