Refund for a completed payment to a scammer

I got scammed, was asked to send fees based on fake screenshots that it's required for their transfer to work from the seller before they would send me the stated amount they would send me. I admit it was foolish to even believe for a second and I regret it and I am responsible for my own mistake for believing them. They definitely aren't planning on refunding me. When I asked via chat they ignored/declined. The payments have already been claimed by them so I cannot cancel them. Is there any way to get a refund? Even if not the full amount? Please help.

Re: Refund for a completed payment to a scammer

Unfortunately, I'm also an idiot. I've contacted eBay, PayPal, and my bank. Hoping at least one will respond. The payment is still pending on my bank app.
