Welcome to Fluther!!!

I have found PayPal to be very helpful in getting refunds. You may need to contact them more than once; but, they usually come through.

How did you pay the app? If it was through a credit card or a bank card, contact their fraud department. They can often reverse the charges, meaning you can get your money back from the app’s owners. You can even get back the money they are threatening to hold onto if it’s money that you paid into your account. If it’s something you earned by using the app, you may be out of luck. But then again, it might be worth the cost to be free of it.

Don’t wait for PayPal. Talk to your bank at the same time and let them know that you are pursuing a case with PayPal, too. The bank might want to wait for PayPal to make a decision, but it also might want to start reversing the charges right away. Either way, it is better to get the bank involved right away.
