I Was Ripped Off Big Time!

Hi, I found you on alibaba.com
My name is Ouahiba Smaoui, my trade manager ID is wahiba33, Florida USA. on april 16th 2007 ,
I have been contacted by Mr. John Steve ,a free member from Party Superstores Limited company from UK regarding buying GSM phones.
After a long chat on trade manager,he convinced me to buy from him, and I fell for the price, and never thought it was a scam until later.
I placed an order on of 10 units of NOKIA N95/N76 , and I paid $1000usd via western union (receipt attached).Once I gave him the MTCN# , he disappered, and never signed in to his trade manager or online.
I sent him emails,messages but in vain,I knew then that I was ripped off!!
I do have all proofs of conversations with him,on trade manager and on messenger.
His trade manager ID was coldsteve4sure .
I am seeking your help. Is there any way to get a hold of him or get my money back? I am desperately upset and furious of my stupidity in trusting this member on this site.
Please contact me with any information needed to help solve this matter,I can provide you with copies of all conversations with him.


The same day, April 16th 2007, I was contacted by another company :Putian Licheng District Meifeng Package Factory ,I said ok this one is a gold member and has a trust-pass...so I ordered from them and sent $1000usd with Western Union for 5units of Nokia N95 new edition. A week later, I received only 3 units, but they were fake!! replicas!! I went right away and sent them back to them, I chat with the seller again on trade manager : Andrew ID was cgs_rainysharing, he never answered back and he changed his name to :huangjianyu
Anyways,I never had a chance to get on hold of him,I contacted all members of the company,even the manager won't answer back up to today.
I have attached all proofs,conversations,emails,receipts,invoices.......

Here are all their emails:
