scammed on Craigslist, any recourse ?

My wife is a big SU basketball fan.

She saw tix of Craigslist yesterday and bought them, but of course never
got the tixs.

She paid with them using Green Dot MoneyPak card, that she got a CVS.

We have the persons google gmail account, and his cell phone that appears to
be a legit regular cell phone, not a buy it and trash kind.

Ideas ? (funny ones are good, serious ones better).

Pursue legal action or report the user

Next time use a more reputable site like Stubhub

If you buy anything of Craigslist or Kijiji and don't meet and pay cash it's kinda your fault..... but I suspect you already understand that.

Is the ad still up? Does Craigslist have a link to other ads you can click? If so email like and excited purchaser telling that person you absolutely need that item today and as long as you can meet today you'll pay 150% of asking price. (But again, if scammer knows what their doing it will be one ad and one ad only)

Someone would actually be naive enough to buy something off craigslist or kijiji without meeting and seeing it in person?

Take this as a lesson; don't buy things off craigslist.

Common sense ain't too common.

Don't buy tickets unseen off of these sites, sure. But for most things they are perfectly safe. I bought and sold plenty of items on Kijiji with absolutely no problems.

If you have his phone number, put it on Craigslist's "men looking for men section" with a description that anyone who calls the number gets the invite to a wild sex party

Don't know where OP lives, but if it's in a large metro area this is the way to go.
