I found two separate listings on Ebay by the same seller

This answer was rated:

Hi, I found two separate listings on Ebay by the same seller and I contacted them to ask about the items and the contents. I spoke to the seller over the phone and she said that she was happy to do a deal outside ebay for both items for £4000.00. I said fine as long as it is over paypal (as you are still protected). I made payment over paypal however she refunded the payment because she said it would take 21 days to clear. Then she said that she would invoice me the items and provide her bank details for me to do a bank transfer. I did not think much of it and agreed to go ahead with this deal. I made the payment to her personal bank account based on her invoice and she sent the package. The problem is that in the package was some worthless junk and not the actual items I had paid for. Now she has switched off her phone and after many email she responded saying that she has done nothing wrong and that she has posted the correct items. Now I am stuck because I do not know what action to take. Obviously this is fraud and a crime but all I want to do is get my money back. So my question is what is the best procedure to follow to get my money back?

Hi Alex, if I visit their property in person and ask for my money back. Would there be any legal implications?
