    Default How Much Have You Guys Been scammed Since You've Started IM?

    i started im about 2 years ago and through the course ive been scammed about 5k, of course ive recovered and made more! many of the scammers were from BHW, theyve all been banned now though

    So yeah, i still see many people getting scammed especially newbies who are the most vulnerable, what i do suggest to newbies before sending money over to people is asking reputed members to help to check or something because of course they will have more experience and will have an easier time telling the difference between the scammers and the trustworthy, or you could just buy from bst.

    So yeah friends How Much Have You Guys Been scammed Since You've Started IM?

    thanks y'all

    I got scammed, for 4G back close to 10 yrs ago when I didnt know much, and kinda of took everyone at their word. Boy did I learn in hurry that you don't do that. Know I follow the late Ronald Regan's term he made famous "Trust But Verify" Since then, knock on wood I havent been scammed again. But with that said you never know when the next con man is coming. Isn't it funny that the word "con man" is short for "Confidence Man" Pretty ironic if you ask me lol

    have not really been "scammed"fully, but I have wasted about $500-$600 on services that claimed to be amazing but were garbage.

    I did get the services, however they did nothing to help me.

    So far $1250 + $300. It will probably happen again too. Not because I'm dumb, but because that is often the nature of the beast for good returns (and I was also dumb )

    15 dollars buying P.V.A. fiverr gigs with accts that got banned within a week if that counts.

    I've been lucky and haven't been outright scammed yet.

    Never been scammed directly, only in buying bad p.v.a. accounts, bad fiverr seo services and stuff like that, maybe 20-30 dollars.

    I see people count the AdSense Ban. If that should count, then I got fucked for $2,000 but let's supposedly say , adsense bans you for some reason, that can't be called a scam.

    So yeah, i still see many people getting scammed especially newbies who are the most vulnerable, what i do suggest to newbies before sending money over to people is asking reputed members to help to check or something because of course they will have more experience and will have an easier time telling the difference between the scammers and the trustworthy, or you could just buy from bst.

    So yeah friends How Much Have You Guys Been scammed Since You've Started IM?

    thanks y'all

    But sometimes they ban for no reason. I was banned years ago, right before they pay, all traffic are from google, except myself, I check my sites everyday.
    Tbh I feel they are worse than scammers, they are robbers.

    not really scammed but I lost 600+ from azoogle closing down... all my leads were legit and earned through POF advertising.

    not much money but in business you have to try to never lose even a single dollar cuz that dollar could be working for you making more dollars lol.

    I do not count but not much since 2004. The rule is simple. If it is too good to be true you should dig around.
