If you have his info, maybe check into filing a claim in small claims court. If you serve him with the paperwork PRIOR to filing the claim with the court, it might actually startle him enough into paying the money back or sending the board and you wouldn't really have to go to court. Good luck.

Is your paypal funded by credit card or by bank account? If by credit card, call them and have a chargeback done. If by bank account, call your bank and see what they can do. Sometimes they can get involved and help. If that wont help, call his local police dept. All you really need is his address. Explain the situation to them, file a case and go from there.

I second going through your credit card company.
It is amazing (and a little scary) what they can do at your request.

Chargebacks are great. The seller will have to provide proof that the item was delivered. Usually you only have 60 days from the date of the charge to do a chargeback, so do it quick!

well im only 16 and work in a horrible restaraunt as a severer and it is miserable.. i hate my job but i have to stay with it until somehow i find a better job so im having to stick it out and save up my 1's that i get to pay for my guzzling suv's gas and to buy gear for the summer...maybe not as good as the other kid but i think it is

Add how much you paid, and don't you make less than minimum wage because you’re a waiter, put all that in the story too

it's not fair to you though, I offered that kid money so I will offer you too, PM or IM me or email me or something if you want to take me up on the offer, I have to warn you it won't be that much (I'm also 16, you know how it is) but fair is fair...

The only reason I'm telling you to pm or Im or is cause I figured you would't want to post your address, but I guess if you don't mind...go ahead

IF you paid by credit card on Paypal, just call your CC company and tell them you want to dispute the charges. I've done it on a couple of eBay transactions gone wrong and it has worked out great both times.

Sorry 'bout your misfortune Matt.
Welcome to the real world. We all hate our jobs, are overworked and underpaid. BTW, if you only make $3.00 an hour how'd you get the credit card and SUV???

small claims court ..... Step by step instructions and all you do is fill them out and then take them to the office at the local county court house... good luck.
