I'm a 16 year old boy that loves building computers.
I usually go find things on Facebook marketplace as it is cheaper.
So I found a post selling a procesor for computer. I contacted the person and he wanted to send the money to his bank account before he's going to send it.
Of course I checked his account and he looked trustworthy. I checked his profile on aukro.cz and he had lots of positive comments.
So I did send the money and we got a deal.
But after 10 days of the product not coming. I asked him where it is and why am I getting no emails about my package. He said he didn't know.
So I told him to give me my money back. He agreed. But after 10 days of chatting there's no money on my bank account. He responds rarely and blames the problem on the bank system.
That's when I found him on one site that exposes scammers on marketplace. The people there had similar experience. They wanted the procesor, but didn't get any. So they issued a refund but didn't get any too.
That's when I knew I was doomed.
I know it's a bit selfish but as I said I'm a 16 year old and my Parents would kill me if I told them about this.
That's why I'm here for some help.
