Now I am going to play with my imaginary Dentron MT3000A.
You must have used Friends and Family. Don't do that again.
By the way, I will find this guys location. I lowered my guard and I had a bad feeling about this. I even question him about the two different email addresses before paying for the Dentron. I guess I was too exited to get it. I learn from mistakes.

I am new to PayPal (started las year), I did not know the difference, but thank you for the advice.
Google the PayPal name that the $$ was sent to Victor Edem Effiom and see what you come up with. Seems to be a common one in Nigeria. That's likely where it went.
Not to be mean but is it really hard to know the difference. Was the seller your friend? Was the seller your family? I bet the answer is no. Did you read the TOS for the friends and family usage? There are more warnings on QRZ about friends and family then anything else. I have posted the TOS in a screen shot many times trying to help people not get taken.
I am sorry he got you but you helped him.
When all else fails use this service from the Virginia Farm Boys !!
I doubt it.
Make no mistake, these guys are professional criminals. It is NOT a single individual, it is an organized ring of thieves. They cover their tracks well.
NO, its not really hard to know the difference WB0MPB and yes I made a mistake (when I said "I lowered my guard"). We all make mistakes and this is one of many I have made in my life. It is my fault and I learned, but I will make sure it will not happen again. I got carried away with having that tuner but oh well, I might get a real one one of this days. Let that guy enjoy the cash while it last.....
"Leading a horse to water" comes to mind...
