    After being approached by a couple of individuals on Skype about a panel and really cheap services I finally shelled out $50 (they wanted $100) to try it out.

    http://smmboosters.com/Default.aspx

    I should have seen the red flags, but I decided to try it out. After sending $50 Skype user smmbooster claimed to not have received the money. I told them that I would dispute the charge. They then quickly blocked me on Skype and I have not spoke to them since.

    I have more info about their scam and who is involved but will add that later. I need to run out for a while.

    [B]Skype user vfx.artists[/B] set the deal up. I believe this may be the same exact person as [B]Skype user smmbooster [/B]however. That, or they are equally illiterate.

    No surprise. The prices were too good to be true. Hopefully nobody else falls for this. They aren't the smartest guys. I just thought I would give it a shot.
