    You have lost your cash. That's it.

    All you can do is learn from the experience.

    Anything too good to be true is just that - a scam..

    At least it was not a 419 scam where you had supposedly inherited millions. 

    Some people have been fleeced for thousands or tens of thousands & even stolen far more from employers to pay the endless imaginary "fees" hoping to get the non-existent money..

    Do not trust a person you do not about him. Never give any personal information to anyone.

     Use your brains next time - thats what brains are for

    Just think through the steps that led to you being scammed and try to work out how it happened

     (p.s - what was the point of blocking him? - I assume you had a reason - but think now - how would it have stopped you being scammed?)

    It means you just taught yourself an expensive lesson. Learn from it.

    It means that you lost $200.

    There is nothing that you can do about it.  The scammer was probably in West Africa.

    Be thankful it was only $200.  Many people lose a lot more.

    What it means for you is he took advantage of a naive 15 year old, and you're out the cost of the gift card. Learn from it.
