    Basically I bought a high priced item off someone on FB and paid Friends and Family,
    this individual is some punk kid and I know for a fact he has done this to six other people.
    I was on the phone with Paypal today who refused to help, it seems to be a nice loophole for scammers to use to steal money and not lose their account. Paypal won't help and the funds came from my Paypal account not a credit card. My mate said to report them to the police and the account but I can't see that helping, I never stated what I was buying went I sent the payment which I know was stupid but the kid could lie and say to the police it was a gift from me or something made up.

    Do you have FB messages to show you were buying it?
