    First, kick your own nuts for being stupid 2 times in row
    Second call paypal (no email writing) and try to find a reasonable person to explain the situation as good as possible.

    But most probably your money is gone.

    pretty much you're hosed - sorry. If dealing with PayPal use credit card ONLY for all payments for your own protection. This is a must. I know your situation is different but you can't do blind trust thru PP because if you get screwed you are toast.

    There isn't anything you can do. Paypal's going to bend you over on this one.

    Final score: You lose, Paypal wins.

    It's the same outcome 99.99999% of the time

    First thing you should do before you spend another dime is delete all your emails with the subject "You won the UK lotto" and any email from a Nigerian prince needing help getting money out of his country.

    ok did you send the tickets?
    did you get them from ticketbastard?
    contact them saying they were stolen and the bar code on them will be alerted and he wont get into the game
    dont know if this would work but worth a try i guess

    oh well if the whole deal was legal he could even go to police and report it.
    But most likely that guy will sell the card again
