just accept to be cheated
PayPal and the credit card companies are not the end-all final arbitrator. This man and his wife possess your property. Send them a PayPal Request for Money; if they pay it, you can believe their story, and the issue is closed.
It's also possible that they are making up a story. If they don't pay the Request for Money, tell them you'll contact a detective at their hometown police station, giving him their home address and physical description of the widget; please listen for a knock on the front door. If that doesn't work, you'll file with Small Claims Court.
