Advice post - paypal

Question for all of you about what you think about this.

What should a commissioner do if they send a paypal payment and it is sent back to them?
Basically I paid for art from someone [I honestly don't even know who it is anymore, I'll talk more about that a little more down the line] and the payment was send back to me. Paypal said it was because they did not claim the payment within a month.

I am curious as to what people would do in this situation.

From the commissioners point of view, it seems like the artist should have claimed the payment within the amount of time. Should the commissioner really have to go out of their way to figure out who this person is, what the commission was, ect, ect, in order to see about the payment? Sending it back could work, but the issue is if they don't claim it within the amount of time, yet again it will be sent back.
I don't really know if it should be the commissioners responsibility to have to go through past emails and notes in order to hunt down this person. This is why I'm asking you guys. So far no one has contacted me about the money being sent back, should I just ignore it?

I'm just not sure whats the best thing to do here, and curious as to what others thoughts are.
