Scammed

Anyone know how I can get my money back? Someone on Etsy was pretending to be customer support and I was selling something on Etsy at the time. Said to receive the payment from the product, I needed to have £300 in my Revolut account and had to verify with them. They said it wouldn’t cost me anything but they’ve taken the £300 and now I can’t do anything. Revolut customer support did nothing either

    What did you actually do, transfer the money to a third party account?

    Was it "your" Revolut account, or was it a new Revolut account the scammers had you set up?

    Did you transfer money into that account? If so, what institution did you transfer the money from and have you contacted them?
