    I've heard paypal will give you your money back and deal with the person themselves if your scammed so if so, hope you get your money back.

    I'm a bit confused here. It doesn't sound as though the seller has done anything wrong?

    Yeah I sense that, would be good to know the time frame from when the money was sent

    Why did you send them money in the first place? What were you hoping to get out of it? If you were sending for a service, why would you decide to send as friends and family?

    What exactly is the problem? The seller hasn't got back to you in how long exactly? This arguably isn't a scam if you decided to send money via friends and family rather than paying for goods. Quite possibly not much that can be done.

    Sorry I wasn't clear .. the seller didn't send out anything despite me paying for it so they have done wrong as it's fraud .
    I wanted to buy a pair of trainers and they didn't send it . This was over a week ago now and it's not been sent and they have ghosted my messages despite being online

    It's a scam as they knew they wouldn't send anything hence the reason they asked me to pay of that method

    Do you think I could get my money back if I were to go to the bank and explain my situation as my bank card is linked?

    How do you know the buyer? If you purchased them through ebay, I'd contact them.
