    I was curious if anyone had been scammed when purchasing a service from a fellow member? If so what did you do to correct the situation? (or did you chalk it up to school of hard knocks?)

    Ive never been scammed, but then again I only buy services from reputable members that have good reviews in their thread.

    Does being scammed mean you paid something for a service? I mean money is involved?

    A scam is when money is exchanged and service or product is not provided.

    I just decided to start outsourcing recently. I did a lot of research in services thread before deciding on who to go with. Seems like there are lots of reputable services in there but even with the reputable ones with a long history you can see times when they have slacked. I just decided based on comparability and price. So far so good. If you got scammed sorry to hear, hope your seller makes it right.
