Always pay that extra 3% on PayPal so you're covered when things like this happen. A fanatic sold me fake ray bans and I'm glad I paid the extra when he told me to send the payment as a gift. I wouldn't have had PayPal as leverage when he initially refused a refund. He finally made good of it and refunded all my money.
