What happened: I posted task to get an e-book for some btc.
He PM me said that he can provide it for $10.
He don't want to go first.
I asked him for screenshot of pages.
He gave me only 1 screenshot.
Because I really need this e-book for my thesis and I think that escrow will make me to wait longer, I decided to go first.
I sent the money, then he didn't give a shit about me.

Nice, thanks for editing your OP to fit the scam report format. It makes our lives so much easier to just scan through a template and it makes comprehending the situation objectively so much easier for everyone.



The user in question is already tagged by lauda.

Honestly, i don't blame you. I wouldn't be bothered to escrow for $10 either, and i don't think that any escrow would be willing to waste tx fees on such a small trade. But what you can do though, since this is involving a somewhat tangible item that paypal recognizes(and you do have paypal it seems) you could have paid by paypal which was reversible. This is a strategy i use when purchasing small items, i always try to pay by paypal goods and services. Obviously if he insisted on bitcoin payment then that's a completely different story.

Thankfully you've learned your lesson of using escrow when trading with bitcoin with a relatively small amount, hopefully you don't get ripped off for hundreds like people do on a daily basis here.

Thank you, Lesson learned.
The thing about paypal is, I have to educate myself. Because I also got scammed $111 via option "send to family and friends"
I don't know what's the difference with the send money to pay goods/service.
The seller insist to send the payment via family and friend. And I sent it.
It turns out that it's not reversible. Except if you use the fund from your credit card.
It's indeed very important to learn and question agenda of the person we have deal with.
