    Hello

    It all started when athleted123 opened a sales thread on another forum (***) selling an Adsense method. I contacted him through skype and after we talked for a bit he pushed a clickjacking script on me telling that it's better and he uses it himself and could make me $3000 spending only $4 a day. After setting up the deal after agreeing that he gonna provide support and will refund me if my Adsense account got banned i sent him $600. here's a part of our skype chat:

    [23/10/2011 04:57:53 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: will i get accepted into Adsense easily or they may reject me?
    [23/10/2011 04:58:23 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: because my site will be still new
    [23/10/2011 04:58:28 Ù…] a1vaps: you should get accepted shouldnt be to hard
    [23/10/2011 04:58:43 Ù…] a1vaps: you can get accepted into adsense
    [23/10/2011 04:58:45 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: within how many days/weeks?
    [23/10/2011 04:58:46 Ù…] a1vaps: without a website
    [23/10/2011 04:58:47 Ù…] a1vaps: but ill show you that later
    [23/10/2011 04:58:57 Ù…] a1vaps: all depends dude
    [23/10/2011 04:58:58 Ù…] a1vaps: mine takes like 24hours
    [23/10/2011 04:59:02 Ù…] a1vaps: some people 1 week
    [23/10/2011 04:59:06 Ù…] a1vaps: some 1 month
    [23/10/2011 04:59:11 Ù…] a1vaps: cant really tell with google
    [23/10/2011 05:00:24 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: aha, with you setting up and building the site, when the site is up and running with adsense.. what i'll need to do? beside knowing how to driving traffic
    [23/10/2011 05:00:53 Ù… | Edited 05:01:12 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: like making the earnings and ctr random and being under the radar especially at first months
    [23/10/2011 05:02:34 Ù…] a1vaps: Well once i told you what to do
    [23/10/2011 05:02:38 Ù…] a1vaps: wont need to do anything
    [23/10/2011 05:02:50 Ù…] a1vaps: ill tell you what to do so ctr is low
    [23/10/2011 05:02:56 Ù…] a1vaps: like 3-4%
    [23/10/2011 05:03:04 Ù…] a1vaps: you wont need to do anything daily
    [23/10/2011 05:03:08 Ù…] a1vaps: once its all setup once
    [23/10/2011 05:03:16 Ù…] a1vaps: all you will need to do is top up traffic
    [23/10/2011 05:03:18 Ù…] a1vaps: thats it
    [23/10/2011 05:03:26 Ù…] a1vaps: dude im going to GF now
    [23/10/2011 05:03:30 Ù…] a1vaps: hit me up in the morning
    [23/10/2011 05:03:34 Ù…] a1vaps: and ill answer anything else you have
    [23/10/2011 05:03:54 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: i was having just 2 other questions anyway ok later ;)
    [23/10/2011 05:04:15 Ù…] a1vaps: ok shoot the other 2 questions
    [23/10/2011 05:04:16 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: have fun and looking forward to start this asap :)

    [23/10/2011 05:06:07 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: will i have to be under $1000 in earning for first month to not raising red flag?
    [23/10/2011 05:07:22 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: and after that we can scale this in the next months for 3000
    [23/10/2011 05:07:46 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: ...
    [23/10/2011 05:08:40 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: as you know, that's huge investment for me nowadays and i'm putting most of my money into this and am doing this because i've faith in you
    [23/10/2011 05:11:29 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: but if before hitting $600 earnings (my investment) something unexpected happened and google banned and didn't paid me. will you give me my money back? or will be working other thing with same money i'm paying the first time?
    [23/10/2011 05:12:17 Ù…] a1vaps: i can give you back the earnings
    [23/10/2011 05:12:24 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: that's it for now :)
    [23/10/2011 05:12:24 Ù…] a1vaps: or your investment
    [23/10/2011 05:13:16 Ù… | Edited 05:13:37 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: amazing!
    [23/10/2011 05:14:06 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: that was my 2nd question
    [23/10/2011 05:14:24 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: 1st one was... will i have to be under $1000 in earning for first month to not raising red flag?
    and after that we can scale this in the next months for 3000
    [23/10/2011 05:15:21 Ù…] a1vaps: yeah under $1000
    [23/10/2011 05:15:37 Ù…] a1vaps: then next month we go for $1500
    [23/10/2011 05:15:43 Ù…] a1vaps: then $2000
    [23/10/2011 05:15:46 Ù…] a1vaps: then $2000 again
    [23/10/2011 05:15:52 Ù…] a1vaps: then we go for $3000
    [23/10/2011 05:15:57 Ù…] a1vaps: then we stay at $3000 for a few months
    [23/10/2011 05:16:00 Ù…] a1vaps: before we increase
    [23/10/2011 05:16:05 Ù…] a1vaps: right GF is here
    [23/10/2011 05:16:08 Ù…] a1vaps: ill chat to you 2morrow
    [23/10/2011 05:16:11 Ù…] Sergeant 1st Class: ;)

    A month later my adsense account got banned before the payment and i didn't receive any money ofcourse. I told him about that and he said he could teach me another method that will bring $1000 for every $50 spent and if it didn't work he'll give me my money back. I told him i don't have any money to invest anymore and he said it's fine and gonna fund me until i get paid from the new method. it was an insurance CPC network and after we started money was too low, like $3-$5 a day, way lower than what he promised and when i confronted him with this he said i need to spend money to get the higher money while i stated clearly i won't invest money anymore and he agreed and was ok with it. I told him the method don't work as promised and he said he gonna give me my $600 back. i waited a week then contacted him again, he said he's waiting for the bank to fund his moneybookers account to refund me. a week later he blocked me from skype and i never heard from him sense and never got my money back. athleted123 or Leon as he call himself is a big scammer and i regret making this investement with him :(

    anybody still can contact him or know of a way that i could get my money back please?

    Play with fire and you get burned.

    Not saying that atheled123 is not in the wrong but you're aware that you're trying to defraud Google right?

    Whatever transactions you have done on another
    forum should be handled/moderated by their staff.

    Regardless, I have PM'ed athleted123 and have
    requested that he respond to your accusations
    on this thread. I can see that he is not on the
    forum at the moment, so you will have to wait
    until he logs back on and responds to my PM.

    Yeah there's not much you can really do. You're going to have to let that $600 go, since you'll never see it again.

    I would like to hear that this atheleted123 guy has to say though.

    Is it the big atheleted of blackhatworld?
    I could remember him (or someone else) saying that there's an imposter claiming to be him in facebook.
    I've known this guy, and sorry to say this, but i trust this guy, though 'll like to hear his say on this matter, but what's $600 to this guy to scam you?
    once again i'll like to hear his say too.
    If it was athelete that created that thread about someone else imposing him on facebook, someone can also do that on other forums too.
    I'm not trying to prove you wrong.
    Just voicing out my opinion, but, atheleted has the final say here.
    I'll rest my case.
    This court has been adjourned till
    Atheleted appears.

    That 600 would probably go to his new car that he will take pictures of and show it to everyone... I hope he responds to this Wiz, I'm curious to see what he has to say...

    I don't have answers. i got scammed by him and the whole matter don't have anything to do with facebook, we talked on his skype that he even have under his name on bhw and i already posted a part of out chat above. i even sent him the money after knowing and seeing his reputation here on BHW and thought he's legit. also if you have answers do you know why he started a thread here about a fake method that got a lot of bhw members CPA accounts banned just to get signature traffic to his product that sells for around $50?

    exposed here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh.../372328-ferrari-f430-spider-collection-4.html

    smokes and mirror and i think i figured it late

    I've worked with Atheleted for years... and he's not the sort of person to rip someone off.

    He's always paid me moneys owed for scripts i've made/sold him when asked and never late or gives any bullshit about not having the money.

    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/372328-ferrari-f430-spider-collection-4.html
    Preferably the post from G-S-T and then what athleted responded, saying he posted false method just to get signature traffic.

    I just checked my skype, and he removed me already. Duh! Seems like the huge $600 scam was planned and now he doesnt want to show others if he is online or not.

    lol.
