If you have been defrauded by a seller, escrow service, or online auction service, there are a number of steps that you can take. If you paid by credit card, call your credit card company and have them suspend payments immediately. You should then try to work out the problem with the services that brokered the transaction. If you continue to have problems, you should consult your state Attorney General's office. You should also consult your state consumer protection agency and lodge a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. Lastly, consider filing a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.
