This question already has an answer here:

I just got charged $88 for an ESTA using a non-standard site.

Has anyone got any ideas as to whether I can get a refund?

    I doubt it. You accepted the cost when you bought, now you're bound to it. – Aganju Dec 4 '18 at 16:20

    If you used a credit card (hopefully AMEX) you can dispute it. AMEX always takes my side in a dispute with merchants, ALWAYS – user 56513 Dec 4 '18 at 16:32

    If you found the site in Google Search, you may notify Google to remove the link. Finally this week (after a lot of year) Google started to took action (and it ask people to notify such sites) – Giacomo Catenazzi Dec 4 '18 at 18:25
  • As noted in the linked Q&A you can dispute the charge with your card issuer if they did not actually send in your ESTA application. – Michael Hampton Dec 4 '18 at 23:32

As you learn't the hard way, esta.cbp.dhs.gov is the only website where you should apply and pay for an ESTA application.

I don't think you can get your money back unfortunately.
