No, no, no... I meant "Wow" as in I cannot believe that 8 years has passed without resolvement.
With Greg is what you see is what you get. How can anyone say anything negative about the man? Not kissing ass either don't care if he is a moderator here in BHW. He goes by the golden rule so why would anyone say "why is this still open" because he wants it to be. This community is better because of him and all of the other mods. He lost money and if he wants to open a thread then let it be. All the comments of " Never trust jnvip" anyone can scam you etc, that's not the point of the thread. The point is some people can fall on hard times but that is not an excuse not to pay a person back. If I had a few dollars to my name and I owed someone money that should go to the first but for some reason, many don't think like that. Being online is still a business, and should be treated like a brick and mortar and I do hope that Greg gets his money back or gets an answer to what happened with this guy. Let's not sit here and the question as the dollar amount doesn't mean anything as stealing is stealing. God bless you brother Greg and if you need anything pm me anytime.
Obviously this was before my time here but from skimming through, the saddest thing is that the guy seemed to be a trusted guy at one time, and if he had been legit, just think of the amount of money he could have made from JV'ing with @BassTrackerBoats
No matter the amount he scammed initially, I bet he lost out on at least 10x that amount by being a douche.
Whether you believe in Karma or not, I do believe that most scammers do face some form of justice eventually.
Hopefully the guy is kicking himself and crying about what could have been.
Something happened to him in 2013, by his own admission:
He deleted his FB account the day after BTB resurrected this thread, so it seems like he's still reading BHW.
After reading BTB's further thread https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/bezo-pravin-shocker.655655/#post-6633046, I am guessing that BTB received one token gesture payment and not a single cent after this.
As @BassTrackerBoats says, never invest more than you can afford to lose. The internet is a wonderful place to make money but there are a few bad apples.
However, judging from your initial and subsequent posts in the past 8 years, i am sure you made more than the money back than you lost.
I once had a situation where i was taken for $5,000 at a time when that was a lot of money for me, my "partner" stole the money on the day of my wedding, so he new i would not find out until i returned from my honeymoon. He then spent my entire honeymoon period trashing me to everyone who would listen, as i was blissfully unaware. So when i returned i came back to a complete shitstorm.
Now, i use the core business model to make the majority of my money and it has bought my wife and i multiple houses and a very nice lifestyle and i dont have to split it. Further our paths crossed again and i was sufficiently wealthy to run a business at a loss until it bankrupted him, then i just gave it to his staff.
The point is karma is a bitch. @BassTrackerBoats has thrived online and i am sure his "partner" has not.
Wow. To think of all the marketers who have come and gone on this site. Once in awhile I kick my self for wasting time smoking pot in 2009-2013. I wish I would have gotten into marketing right outta school. All the old posts iv read here make me feel it was the wild west back then.
He probably just has a new name and maybe never left BHW
Is it BhutJolokia?
That is what your typical coward does.
He sent me a whopping 100.00 and promised the balance in the near future back then... not sure of the actual terms he offered though. I actually got sucked into thinking he decided to not be a total jackwagon and that is on me as the old saying holds true, "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me."
It was only $6,500.00 and the events were something along the lines of someone was going to SL him as he owed them and I bailed him out... not sure of all the details but I have the conversations on a thumb drive but I do remember we sent the money to someone on the west coast of the USA for him.
The crazy thing is that I don't even want the money, I'm going to donate it to a charity so he is past screwing me and now screwing people in real need.

The main thing I would consider "karma" is a simple action and reaction scenario. These low level (and of course more sophisticated scammers) will keep scamming people. Now, these low-level scammers lack any sophistication and will scam someone, who won't let the money go and a)visit them for Karma or b) do something along the lines you did to get some sort of return.
I like your way of giving him some taste of "Karma", nicely done.
This is about more than just the money....
Though i presume OP wouldnt mind as well , seems to be more about resolving the situation, so the amount isnt really important.
