Ripped off on F/B Marketplace

Bit of a rant I'm afraid and after some advice. Have used F/B Market place and local buy/sell sites for ages with no issues. Recently saw an item that I'd been after for ages, and the seller was really responsive, very quick, couldn't be more helpful. Asked me to pay via paypal 'friends and family' to save her paying commission, which I did (often do). Anyway, the tracking number came through, said item arrived...only it was a very cheap (obviously cheap) copy. I immediately PM'd seller who then blocked me! I contacted paypal who aren't interested. I've managed to track down her phone number but when they answer are very cagey and claim not to know her (yeah right!), and I've got her address. To be honest it's less than £50 so it's hardly worth taking to court - but it's the principle of the thing as much as anything, I can't afford a loss like this!!!!
