I think I’ve been scammed

Realising that you may have been the victim of a scam can be extremely upsetting and worrying

Once you have made a payment some scammers will continue to contact you to try and talk you into making further payments. As soon as you realise that it’s a scam you should stop all contact with the scammer.

If you’ve paid on a credit or debit card, then you can ask your card provider if they’ll refund the payment. If you paid through PayPal then you can raise a dispute and ask if they’’ claim the money back, although there’s no guarantee that you will get your money back.

It’s very important that you report any potential scams as soon as possible, this helps organisations such as Action Fraud and Trading Standards educate the public so that others don’t also fall victim to the scammers.
