I saw someone post this on a non baiting related site. It seems fishy...I mean, other than the obvious part where he thinks he was scammed. Is there more to this or is it simply a scam that went wrong?

Here's what he posted:

I was recently involved in a scam involving an ebay auction. I sent the funds via a wire transfer to a person's bank account in US. The next day I was notified that the funds were not received. I called the bank to which the person had the account that I sent the funds to. Was told they would look into it and call me back. Well a couple of hours later,I was contacted by police,due to my contacting the bank,this person had been arrested due to me notifying the bank earlier. I am on the police report as a victim. The bank account that this person was receiving the wire funds has been frozen a few days earlier due to a fraudulent check.
I would like to know if I have any hope of recovering the funds? I have had my bank send 2 wire recalls but no refund as of yet. The bank that the funds was sent to will not speak to me.
If the bank does have sufficient funds to cover my wired funds,will they return them? I have spoke with legal council,but was advised it would be quite costly.

Usually a wire transfer that were not received, bounces would return back to your bank and your bank would contact you to pick up your money.

The way to deal with this situation is to: File a formal complaint with your bank and then move it up (if you don't get your money back) to the government agency that regulates banks such as your state's bank regulator, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Reserve and maybe the FBI.

He haven't said how the police contacted him. Sometimes scammers pose as law enforcement etc as part of a recovery scam.
As Bobcat said, money shouldn't be accepted by a frozen account.
