Guy scammed me/found out a way to meet him.

So I tried buying a fairly expensive guitar offline from what seemed like a reputable seller with pictures and previous posts only to be left without a response once the money was sent and I doubt Paypal is going to find it and refund it to me. Did some deep Googling on his e-mail and found on a forum that he was asking for oxy/downers and would meet somebody for them (stand up guy I know.) You all seem to be experts in the law/courses of action in these situations.

So OT... wat do?

So you want to confront a drug addict and demand cash money be returned that you sent electronicaly? Doesn't sound like it could ever come to a positive conclusion no matter how it went down.
Guitar guy probably allready sniffed a pile of oxys bought with your money while his hipster girlfriend and bros were laughing in his mothers basement about how good his scam works.

I did send the payment for goods. I didn't know Paypal could still refund it I assumed that he had transferred it out of his account the day I sent it. I already filed my claim just like I said thought they wouldn't be able to find the money. Crisis averted.

Paypal is a crock. They aren't a good guy.

They will probably get your money back.

Do a charge back on your credit card. And meet him, beat the **** out of him then rob him. After you rob him, kick him in the balls and say karma is a biitch and walk away.

I think you should meet him. Bring lots of guns. Maybe you should get drunk first too.

In before both the OP and drug addict scumbag wind up in a jail cell, shuffling around with no shoe laces and eating bad bologna sandwiches.
