    Hey people ,

    This is my first time when I got scammed by somebody for 100$.

    This is similar to Eric Creed scam,invest to get weekly %.

    What do I do now ? I paid via PayPal but as far as I know they do not refund in such cases.

    I know the guy's Phone number , email,skype ,country,city .

    He doesnt respond to my emails,skype for almost a week.

    Please advice.

    Not much you can do other than open up a Paypal claim.

    But how to explain them everything ? If I try I can get more guys that were scammed by him.Nobody got anything only promises.One of them opened up a dispute but no reply from PP.Do you think this is a good idea to gather all together and talk to paypal somehow?

    Call Paypal first and ask about it.

    Yeah the only thing that it seems you can do is contact Paypal on Monday. Send an email and call.

    Update:been on the phone for over 10 mins with PP ,they told me that it's unlikely to get my refund but I can try ,the only 100% way she said to go to my bank and tell that it was an unauthorized payment and ask for my money back.
    I never did the stuff with the bank ,what do you think,did any of you have success with this ? What do I tell them?

    Open a PayPal dispute. Scam the seller back. If it's something similar to a physical object tell PayPal you haven't received the item. Don't try to tell them it's online items. If you do it correctly you should receive a refund.

    Suck it up and chalk it up to experience. The less energy and time you put into this, and the faster you move on the better.
