    Wait a minute. That means either PayPal or the credit card company is going to pay for the OP's bad judgement and failure to exercise basic due diligence. Although that approach seems to be common today, it doesn't seem right to try to let others pay for our mistakes. He's already acknowledged that he considers it a learning experience so let's leave it at that.

    Sorry but as a former law enforcement officer I don't think the scammer should get a free pass or should the CC company.. If credit card companies really wanted to stop all these scams and ripoffs they CAN and SHOULD put better security in place. They elect not to. They have the loss figured into the ridiculous interest rates and fees. Putting a chip on the card hasn't done anything to stop the fraud. I think we need to stand up and do all we can to fight back all this fraud. And yes...buyers do need to do their homework too!

    How is a credit card company expected to know a deal is fraudulent in advance? No way, they can't. But what they can do is sell you a service that gives you some measure of assurance that you won't be bitten by fraudulent deals or your own stupidity.
    THAT is worth paying for!

    Note that the gmail address was a cover for a Protonmail address. Protonmail.ch is a privacy-conscious service located in Switzerland. The server owners supposedly set it up so that even they can't tell who the users are.
