Scammed on Paypal

Writer Wishes To Remain Anonymous

I was paid via paypal for an online item. A few days later i login to find my account -$561….After an hour or so of searching for a phone number, i wait on hold for about 30 minutes, and alls they do is tell you they’ll check it out, put you on hold for a little bit, come back and say “it seems bla bla bla..” and to get to the point, someone paid me with a paypal account that they had stolen, so paypal takes the money back from me, as opposed to taking the time to hunt down the person who stole the paypal account. They said that if i could provide them with proof of shipping, iw ould get my funds back, even though when the “item” was purchased, it said that the item was online, and non-tangible. I told paypal this, and they say “Well, unfortunantly we have no coverage on electronic items.” So im screwed, a few months later (now) i look in my mail and i have a letter from a debt collection, tell me…what kind of bull is that???? At least it was only 561$ though, i just sent a letter back to the debt collection agency, hopefull they will understand, but i will probably end up having to pay the money back…Payhell instead of paypal it seems to me…
