If you are serious about getting your money back and you used a
credit card contact the bank that issued your credit card. You can
initiated a chargeback process. Basically just tell your issuing bank
that you were duped, that you did not get what you paid for. You
intended to donate money to support a software project but the money
did not reach its intended donation. Credit card disputes are heavily
tilted toward the cardholder (especially during card not present
transactions) and I expect your bank could get your money back.
Your bank may or may not give you provisional credit depending upon
how they feel about your particular case. Your issuing bank will
contact the merchant's acquiring bank (Paypal) and go through the
chargeback protocol. You may have to fill out a form or submit a
statement. It shouldn't be too much of a hassle.
