Where did you try and buy it from?
Most scams on the web are pretty obvious and easy to avoid.

How much feedback did he have? It must have been pretty low to go down to 11% from 100%.

No I've never been scammed.

Holy crap that sucks! I have never been scammed on the internet. I remember when I was younger I would always see stuff online I wanted and my dad would instantly say no and explain it to me.

Did you pay using PayPal? From what I've heard PayPal are always in favour of the buyer. So give them a call if that's how you paid.

If by Credit Card/Bank Card just call your bank and tell them to stop the transaction. There's enough evidence there that it's a scam.

I've not been scammed, but I lost some money when I signed up for FileServe for 1 month and they set up a recurring payment without my knowledge. It took some months to notice this and even after I cancelled it through Paypal I was charged again. In the end I had to cancel my bank card and get a new one.

Just for a couple of DVD's on Ebay. Both times the sellers looked good, with a decent feedback rating, and both times their accounts were deactivated or something after I placed my order. Oh well, cost me twenty bucks to learn not to use Ebay any more.
