Unfortunately, that is the problem for many of us hence why we are all annoyed.  As soon as we realised we had been scammed we raised a case of fraud and PayPal just closed all our cases and now there isn’t an option to put in another dispute to say goods not received.  If there was we would be able to get our money back as you have.

it looks like PayPal needs to review their policy when it comes to disputes and provide an option to alter reason for dispute

I am in the same position as you paid through PayPal didn’t open an account until after I made my purchase. Have contacted PayPal via email they sent me an invoice about further information for my item, saying it had been shipped by China post??! Have emailed them to say this is a scam and I want my money back, I’ve received nothing since so I’m gonna have to go through the bank now. It’s an absolute disgrace that PayPal even associate with this company. I have reported to action fraud team too!

Have you raised a case with PayPal?  If you have,keep messaging the constantly.  They will pick it up  eventually and you also have an audit trail. i made the wrong decision of registering it as unauthorised transaction because I was trying to report is as fraud.  PayPal closed the case straight away, so I then nagged nagged and messaged them and eventually they reopened case and I got a full refund.  So keep messaging them and don’t give up.

A week now and PayPal are still allowing people to be scammed! Why don’t they suspend the account and protect their customers?

Unfortunately if you have already reported as fraud, then there is no option for goods not received. I don’t understand how a company can get away with this, they are effectively funding organised crime, with their inefficiency. I work in insurance, if an insurer did not perform checks etc, they would receive fines and the CEO could face a jail term. Why does PayPal allowed off the hook?

Then we have to report it to FCA https://www.fca.org.uk because PayPal are registered with them and they are accountable. Fill in the form and see what happens.  We might  not get our money back but they will lose their reputation and be held accountable.

I have reported to both FCA and fraud action group. I have also named PayPal as a suspected negligent accomplice to the crime. I would also try twitter, I don’t have a twitter account.
