Willy I am sorry you were scammed. FB marketplace is in some ways no better than Craigslist — it is too easy for fake profiles to post and scam. And once something is sent friends and family there seems to be no rescourse with PayPal.

Is this the type of thing you can report to police, if you have emails clearly stating you were exchanging money for a product you didn't receive? I don't know.. just asking, but if you filed a report, or threatened small claims...although they're likely using fake names... Man this sucks for you, especially at the Holidays. I hope something works out!
