GetHuman714866's customer service issue with eBay from May 2018

Help with my eBay issue
The issue in GetHuman714866's own words
Hi good morning. I have a major issue with something thay hapoened to me a while back i wanted to see if there was anything i was able to do to get my money back. I was on craigslist and found a car i was interested in buying, the owner of the vehicle told me that i had to pay them through ebay due to the reason that the car was in another state. They instructed me to purchase a gift card from ebay for a worth of $***. When i did as they instructed, they asked for more money with the reason that they need to get some kind of insurance. I started to inveatigate it because it seemes really suspicious and fpund out that it is a way that people get lied in to giving away money. I tried to see id the gift card had any funds and it didn't, it was all emptied out. Me and my wife were very upset with this incident, but were unaware if there was anything we were able to do. I have proof of the texts they sent me, the emails that were sent to me making themselves look legitimately from ebay. And i have the original receipt and gift card i bought when i was tricked into this awful incident. Is there anything that can be done to get my money back? I would be eternally grateful if thete is something that can be done about what occured.
