Do you trust Alibaba workers when making own product?

This shitty Chinese guy is trying to scam me of my $700 I sent to make this little plastic toy

They look legit being 12 years but I have been stringed along for weeks and now they say cannot do it so now I say refund Paypal and this guy says cannot because I made dispute and to cancel dispute so he can refund But Paypal says if I cancel I cnanot open again and again he delays me 2 days talking about refund on Alibaba.

i dont know what to do to escalate to Paypal decision or what as they…
