    you will win..what's going to happen is paypal will have to prove you obtained the goods to the bank and they will not be able to do that because that would mean they need to contact the seller and have back and fourth communication with the seller which in my experience they have never done...so paypal will just let it go and the money will be taken from paypal and paypal will in turn remove the money from the person who sold u the website paypal account.

    When people try to scam me that's my first option i never use paypal dispute system

    you'll be fine
    just call them and tell them vaguely what happened (got scammed buying a site) - they are helpful and work with lots of people who have no clue what to do
    99% chance you'll get it back

    True. But it upsets paypal and they may limit your account meantime. OK to do as you have the right, but don't do this too often if you value your PP account.....

    In some cases paypal will limit your account but its only because they wanna make sure your the person who filed the chargeback, but I will agree don't do this unless you really need to get your money back.

    Open a chargeback - send as much of your communications history to demonstratethe contract and terms then the other party will need to demonstrate that the terms were delivered upon.

    If you setup payment via bank transfer you more than likely can't dispute with your bank or paypal, but if you used MC or Visa you should be able to charge-back using your bank.

    Worth a shot if it is a big sum or else if it is a small sum then don't take the chances of getting your own pp terminated because I heard paypal gets pissed when you try to bypass their dispute resolution.

    I would think HOW MUCH money would be the determining factor. $500 = chargeback, $5.00 = don't bother
