Sorry, no because friends and family option is considered a 'gift' payment and there are no refunds or buyer protection for such payments. Must always use goods and services option when making purchases to hold seller accountable. Its a red flag when a seller asks you to use friends and family option.

 

If you paid by credit card, you may try to dispute through card issuer but no guarantees.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
