I havenít got in contact with Facebook, the person has now blocked me and I donít have their url. Should I do that? Iíve been told to contact my bank as they can apparently reach out to the other persons bank
Iíve taken all my money out my account, surely I can plead my case to PayPal when they come looking for the money?

Nothing PayPal will do for you. You trued to scam PayPal out of their fees by using friends and family and now you got scammed.

Only FB can help you,may be.
You will have a negative balance in your Paypal account and it will ask you to transfer some money in to bring it neutral

Go to your police or Citizens Advice and complete an Affidavit of Fraud statement and submit it to PayPal. I'm sure the UK has at least similar laws to the USA where you will not be held liable for these types of transactions. A F&F IS reversible, but you will need to force their hand to get them to do it.

That's really tough.
Contact Paypal and report the person to FB.

I guess start there. F&F is just never a good idea to use.

You need to do a chargeback through your bank for "unathorized" it's the only way.
