I am so sorry this happened to you. . That would suck!
Unfortunately, it is hard to offer any advice or insight, because you left so much crucial information out of your post. . I think that in order for any of us to give you the type of advice you are looking for, we would need to know all about the attempts you have made to contact her directly, and the result of each one of those attempts.
We would also need to know all about your communications with PayPal on this matter, and the current status of your counter-claim.
We also need to know the details about how she received the images from you. . Did she receive all the images that he contract called for, or just a sampling of the best ones? . In what way did she receive them? . Did you give her the full resolution images as a final product, or just downsized samples for her to review? . Did you give them to her on a thumb drive or a CD? . Did you email her jPegs? . Did you get them to her via a photo-sharing service such as Dropbox or whatever it's called? . Is the fact that she received the images documentable, such as with screen shots documenting sent emails or Dropbox downloads?
Finally, what were the terms of your contract with her? . How did you address payment in the contract? . What is the actual wording that you used? . Have you discussed the contract itself with PayPal when you talked to them about this claim?

[SIZE=1]Long story short, I did a very short notice session for a family and despite how the photos turned out the lady did a chargeback on PayPal saying she did not receive the items.
My question is, am I allowed to post the photos on my Facebook, or possibly my website, with just her first and last name including screenshots of all of our conversations. .
Obviously blocking out her phone number and email so people cannot see it but the whole situation was absolutely mind blowing with how disgusting and rude this person was. .
I suppose I could leave out her last name and just put the last initial that way I don’t have to worry about people trying to find her. .
I’ve been trying to find some law advice online but it’s kind of hard to find it in this situation. .
I know I own the rights to the photos and she can’t stop me from posting those with screenshots and all of that. .
I guess I just kind a wanted to know if I can get in trouble for having her name attached to it. .
I mainly was going to do it because I have 100+ photographer friends in the local area and I just wanted to make sure this never happened to anyone else again.
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
