Scammed on ebay by buyer who then cancelled the paypal payment

I sold a phone on ebay in good condition and the buyer after four days said that the phone didn't work but would give no further details and would not open a resolution case on ebay or return the phone but just went straight to paypal and got his money back but he still has the phone.  I noticed on the notes that he says not working and damaged, that is not true.  I have been well and truly scammed by this person but what can I do. Ebay have passed the buck and paypal say that because they have now paid him it is hard to get the money back.  Do I have any other way of getting my money back.  I have reported them to Action Fraud already. many thanks Tian

Small claims court? BUT your best bet is to offer a return shipping label if he returns it first.
