Hot Deal I got scammed. Need help

I have bought many times from a street vendor in person over 2-4 years. The products have always been good and I have never been ripped off.
A few months ago, I contacted him and he said that he would send things via courier as shops are closed due to lockdown. He asked to me send an advance of 50% and rest on delivery. So I used GPay to send him ₹1000.
After that, he closed his mobile number. I had another number (which I think he did not expect) and I called him on it. He didn’t pick up, so I sent him a WhatsApp message that I would complain if he doesn’t reply. And surprise, he called me immediately.
Then he started demanding me to pay the full amount before delivery, I said no. He isn’t replying to my messages now.

I know this is 99.9% a scam. I would like to know what can I do to get my money back?

Since you used gpay, you have his bank account and such and would be able to get his name and other info to file a police report..

but for 1000?

Exactly, that’s the problem. It’s not big amount for going to police.
I need some other online complaint way or unconventional ways

More than empathising with your 1000₹ loss, I am eager to know what was the product that he was selling? Aisi kya quality product hai jo street vendor ke paas hi hai?

If he is a street vendor then I think he will be coming to street to sell in coming days. For this much amount he won’t be changing his place of work. BTW what he sells and where?

By now the street vendor would be moved out of the country.

BTW what was the product?? A cassette walkman?? or video game or airgun or airgun refills?

He might have gone back to his native place as Covid lockdown fear is again looming large. Might be in need of money now

I know this is what I should do to fight these scammers but really ₹1000 ke liye police station jaana, fir case vagera chal sakta hai. It is too much headache.
