How did you pay the $500.00?
Cash or Money Order? (Out of Luck)
Credit Card, Report Fraudulent Charge (Reverse Possible)
This man has developed 100's of girlfriends like you with "feelings getting deeper" at least on your part, but not his.
MAJOR Caution: Did you pay by check? If so, cancel your checking account immediately. GET A NEW ONE!
He now has your bank account and routing number. He can do an EFT-ACH Draft on your account at-will and clean out your checking account funds.
