Contact your bank and dispute the charge to your bank account/credit card. Had this happen to me when using PP and my bank credited my account after I wrote them a letter explaining what happened. They inturn went after PP to recoupe thier money.

Call your local postal Inspectors. see if they can help you in anyway. Do you have the guy's mailing address?

I remember that auction, I was watching it because I too wanted a drive (just 1) The history for this person seemed sketchy with no transactions since 2004. I assumed it was a hijacked identity. Unfortunately for you it seems I was right. Get in touch with your CC Co. They should be able to help you out.
