Can I get back my money?

Hi all, 

I have done a great fault. Yesterday, I sent $70 to a person to get some things. I used "send money to friends and family" option to send him. 

After sending money, I don't get any response from him. He just ignored me, no response. Now what can I do? It was my first earning from an affiliate network. 

I just created a dispute after 5 hours of sending money. Can I get back the money? 

If he already withdraw or send the fund to another account, will I get back money? 

And his account was not verified. 

 

Please, respond soon. I am really hopeless. Why people cheat with other peoples, I don't know. Please, wish your reply.

You should not be using "send money to friends and family" for purchases.  There is no PayPal buyer protection for friends and family payments.

 

Why did you use the friends and family payment option?

Actually, I am not regular user of Paypal. Don't have clear idea about this. I thought it's okay to send money. 

So, will I not get back the money? I am truly feeling sorrow.

You will not get your money back unless the person who received it decides to send it back to you.  In the future, don't use the "friends and family" option unless it's a gift to friends or family.

So, there is no way? I created dispute ... and described my problems. 

Can you suggest me any way to get back that money?

You can try filing internet and/or mail fraud complaints against the seller with the USPS, the Internet Crime Complaint Center, the seller's local police department and your police department...
