Hello there! I hope you can help me with my problem. I'm an ordinary Australian worker who works hard for my hard-earned money. But I have this small addiction in online games. One day, I was talking to a guy on a gaming forum and we discussed a deal on his Minecraft account. He was from Canada and seemed legit. We became close so I never suspected him of anything. When the deal took place, I came online on Skype.We discussed about the deal and we talked about how it would go. He did not want to give me the Minecraft account without receiving payment from me first so I told him that I trust him and would pay the cost then he would follow on giving me the account that I paid for. He agreed. After I paid $215 to him through PayPal he just went offline in Skype and I never heard from him again. I was really depressed by that unfortunate event. Is there a legal action for my scenario of theft? Thank you in advance.
