    You seem confused! The purpose of my thread was to find a way to contact @Nerva, not to determine any wrongdoing, I leave that to the moderators and staff of this forum, if necessary. They are much better placed than you to do this, but hey, thanks for your input, it really added to the thread.

    As @fasttrak stated, this is not a witch hunt nor a SL thread.

    SL threads go here - https://www.blackhatworld.com/forums/the-shit-list.31/

    Witch hunts go here - NoIdea.com

    The staff is very aware of the issue with @Nerva and is working on the whole deal and it will be sorted out in due time.

    A few of us know a lot of his personal details and are doing what we can to get all this fixed one way or another.

    Let's not draw and quarter him without proof please.

    @BassTrackerBoats and to other members and mods I have been buying content from nerva for a long time now and just wanted to add this :

    1) As stated yesterday he send the article to me yesterday. I will be honest this was a very difficult article and I didn't give him much time too, because this was a paid guest post yet he didn't complain he didn't make excuses he simply delivered.

    2) The reason I'm stressing on he delivered is because his bhw account is banned pending investigation if he wanted to scam he can just vanish and there's nothing we can do about it

    3) One more incident I would like to share a last month delivery I thought I didn't pay him lol, but he reminded me it was paid already and that's integrity for me.

    A lot has been said for and against him but just wanted to share it, and if a seller is delivering on his orders, even without a bhw account I feel he deserves to be back. Though the case is with bhw mods just thought to share my experience with him hopefully they'll bring him home :)

    Presuming you are asking me, as I started the thread. I received my article on Friday evening, quick turn around. I have no complaints, everything completed as paid for.

    I am sure that BHW support is going through everything with a fine tooth comb and will resolve things shortly.

    For what its worth. You seem to be the worst affected by @Nerva's recent issues, sorry you have lost out so heavily and I do hope you are able to get made straight again, one way or another.

    Short but quick update I got another set of articles. Due to the delay he offered to waive of charges but I declined as these stuff happens, what matters is the quality which is top grade as usual. Since I'll be receiving articles weekly will keep updatibg here till he's back.

    Hey, BHW.

    I wish I could start this post with a witty comment as usual, but shit got real, and I need to address all the issues mentioned in this thread seriously and promptly.

    The account verification process took longer than expected because I didn’t have access to any of my previous emails, but I’m here now, which is all that matters.

    How the hell was your laptop cracked?

    I dunno, but probably because I was stupid enough to use “1234” as the PIN for the PC (just as I was stupid enough to use BlackHatWorld as my account's password on BHW).

    How did your passwords and emails get compromised?

    No, I wasn’t storing my passwords and emails in a plain text file, but anyone using Chrome knows that accessing such info is no hard task. All you gotta do is check the stored passwords on the browser by entering the computer’s PIN.

    Who used your data?

    Honestly, I do not know. Maybe the thief used my data. Maybe he sold it on the dark web. Maybe it’s all a joke - a really bad one, that is. I don’t have the slightest idea, and I’m currently as confused as everyone else.

    How was your BHW account compromised?

    My BHW password, which is the good ‘ol “BlackHatWorld”, was stored on my browser along with the rest of my passwords. Yes, I didn’t have 2FA.

    You were posting on your account right before it got banned. How is that?

    Believe it or not, but I wasn’t aware that my account was compromised. I kept logging in using my phone and browsing BHW as usual (in a panic mode, though, as my accounts kept getting shut down either manually or through GDPR requests). What I believe was happening is that the scammer was communicating with several members via PM then leaving the conversations so that I wouldn't suspect a thing. As a matter of fact, several of my important PMs are gone, which is a great loss for me.

    Regarding the whole situation with @PinguSpy:

    Man, I understand where all that hostility comes from, and I’d defo feel the same if I were in your shoes. Oh wait, I am, unfortunately. I know this whole mess is hard to believe, but I swear it’s the truth. Take a second to think about it. I’m a respected member here. I’ve been helping whenever I could. I even wanted to become a Jr Exec VIP and applied to a mod position at some point. I could’ve easily, and I mean EASILY, rented my account for well over 2k bucks if I wanted to. Heck, my sig alone is worth $100+/month, which is some nice chunk of passive income, tbh. Furthermore, I have been fully booked for months. My clients bring me well over $3k per month, which can allow me to live like a king in Tunisia, where I currently live. I even have a new BST under review, which I estimate will bring me a MINIMUM of $5k EVERY SINGLE MONTH. Do you really think I’d risk all of that for merely $1.7k? Hell, I could’ve easily taken hundreds of orders and fleed with all the money. But guess what? I didn’t.

    I’d gladly give you my PayPal account for free to compensate for your loss, which was caused because I wasn’t careful enough, but take a look at my current balance (I got the account back after spending LITERALLY HOURS talking to PayPal support):

    [​IMG]

    That son of a bitch listed several items for sale on different forums and marketplaces, took the payment using my account, didn’t deliver shit, withdrawn the money, and I’m currently dealing with MULTIPLE CHARGEBACKS. By the time everything is settled (the screenshot was taken on August 2nd, and I still have several cases open), I estimate that my balance will be around -$3.5k (That’s a huge neg balance that I have to pay).

    Do you still want to get the account?

    What can I offer instead?

    For what it’s worth, my sincere apology. In my current state, that’s the only thing I can offer.

    How was the scammer communicating in the same way I did, you might ask?

    Well, considering that I have over 2k posts on BHW, I don’t think mimicking the way I write is that hard.

    Is that exactly what happened? I honestly don’t know. Everything is messed up. But that’s the only logical explanation I could think of. Several things may still seem sketchy or far-stretched, but for real, there is nothing I can do. If you have anything in mind, please do let me know. I know that my arguments may seem thin to you and to some other members, but every argument can be considered thin and weak depending on one’s perspective, and I just tried to show you mine.

    PS: Our convo isn’t in my inbox, which is why I’m responding here.

    Regarding other issues and gossip:

    Someone mentioned that I shouldn't be able to communicate with my clients if I lost all my emails and shit, and that’s true, but guess what? I COULDN’T communicate with any of my clients, which is why I asked everyone with an outstanding order to contact me via the aforementioned email address.

    Regarding Sherb’s concerns:
    • His Ideastro site, Gmail and the site for his new project are all currently down
    I lost all of my domains, as they were transferred out of my NameCheap account.
    • It seems farfetched that some random would steal a laptop and proceed to maliciously wipe everything, even in Detroit, where he notes being from.
    Honestly, I have no comment on this. For what it’s worth, I don’t live in Detroit atm.
    • The copy for his potential new sales thread never mentions anywhere that PayPal would not be accepted
    I was planning to announce that after delivering your copy as well as the mod’s. I don’t think I’ll be delivering either of them now, unfortunately.
    • Someone offering content writing services via "Ideastro" is on Upwork with a location of Tunisia, not Detroit, offering the same type of services and translations as his BHW content thread
    That’s not my UpWork account, as mine was closed several months ago, though I do live in Tunisia, and I think I told you that before. Most marketers choose to head to the Philippines as their cheap, safe haven, but I chose Tunisia because a dear friend recommended it.

    Regarding EliteSmith’s bumps on my threads:

    Sorry, man, but I never asked for those bumps, nor did I ever need them, which is why you never got that bonus you requested. Everyone knows that I RARELY need to bump my sales threads, unless I have something important to announce (mostly “out of stock” notices).

    Final words:

    That’s all I have to say. Believe what you want and disbelieve what you want, but I really can’t do much more. If the mods think I should be banned for good, then be it. I’m only writing all of this to let my old clients know that their work WILL be taken care of. I’m probably going to cancel the new BST as I currently don’t have any way to accept payments except for BTC, which I do not intend to use.

    If you have an outstanding order with me (@INCC, @javabro, and Ivan as far as I remember), please do send me an email at THIS ADDRESS instead of the protonmail email. Don’t try to contact me via other mediums, such as Skype and my old email aliases ([email protected], [email protected], [email protected], and [email protected]) as I no longer have access to any of them.

    If you have any question, please do let me know. Also, if you’ve been scammed through one of my accounts and believe that you need to open a shitlist thread, so be it, but believe me, there’s nothing I can add over what has already been said.

    Sorry for all this mess, BHW. Also, please forgive the typos and grammar mistakes, as I wrote all of this in a hurry.

    PS: I want to thank everyone who vouched for me on this thread as I wasn’t able to defend myself promptly. Thank you @Lurker007, @Siddhie55, @Visual Eagle, @SEOzack, @fasttrak, @Sherb, @LuckyGirl9334, and all the others (some of whom I’ve never dealt with on a business level before). I really appreciate your words.

    As for the scammer, if you’re reading this, I have three words for you: Go. Fuck. Yourself.

    Thanks, everyone, and have a nice day.

    • You having a dumbass password for BHW account
    • The theif happen to know BHW and being good enough to imitate your writing style.
    Guess things are unpredictable. But you are going to have to gain our trust back. :anyway:

    Did you report to Paypal that your account was compromised?

    I'm not entirely sure how you have concluded that you will have to pay for someone else compromising your account. Paypal protection works both ways (for buyers and sellers) and I've always known them to refund transactions in cases like this.

    Do you have a business partner? Or someone you have worked with in the past? Like a JV? The reason I ask is because there is no way a stranger stole a laptop, discovered a Blackhatworld account, knew what it was, knew you were a member, knew you had a BST thread, knew who to contact in your PM's, knew all the other forums you were on, knew how to sell items on those forums, knew you had a Paypal, knew who to sell the Paypal to, etc. Do you see?

    This has to be someone who works/ed in your business and knows how it operates. A random scammer who found your laptop on the subway or found your login info is not interested in interacting on forums. They just want to wipe the laptop clean and sell it, or drain the bank accounts with the login info and run.

    It seems odd that your PC allowed you to make a pin with less than 7 characters and only 4 consecutive numbers. It usually forces you to make something stronger.

    I would start looking at the people around me to see who may have done all this.

    ETA: You said the scammer withdrew the money from Paypal. Where did they withdraw the money to? A bank account? Another Paypal? Bought things online?
