Good evening. I am sorry to hear about what you are going through. Paypal should offer you some protection from the scam. Moreover, your credit card company or bank, can hold the charge and please a freeze on it as well, since you used it to pay via paypal. In addition, you must contact the police and file a report, along with craigslist. You want to give the police this persons name and phone number and they can start an investigation and will likely act as you, to find out more information from this person.
