    I came in contact via the hire a freelancer section.

    This guy seems to be running a typical scammy schtick. He acts like he has no money and is broke to get you to feel sorry. Then, he promises to do anything for a really low cost.

    In my case, I wanted some mail accounts and he claimed he'd do them himself. He created with nearly all the same IP's and probably some other problems because the accounts were dead literally just hours after I got them and I never even got to use them. Worse, I paid him more than he asked because I felt bad and the price was low. I sure regret that.

    So, long story short I asked for my money back. Also even gave the guy opportunity to make it right by doing a different small job or just sending the mails promised. Well, he goes from this to NO contact for days on end. Sent me less than half the money I paid him and dropped off the radar.

    I finally get mad, and send him a fairly nasty message. He starts name calling and basically tells me to piss off. LOL. He still has my money and I have nothing but harassment and loads of time wasted from him.

    Watch out for this guy, Captchaman.:(

    Well, I don't have much in chat logs because this guy doesn't respond. He just takes money and runs. So far, he's not sending me money or contacting me at all. As you can see, he probably doesn't even know or care about this shit list posting :-/ Makes me mad as I sent payment via paypal via service and can't easily dispute the charge. What a THIEF!

    I wrote:
    Dude, are you unable to reply to mail anymore? lol. Look , if you aren't going to respond, just give me my money back. I don't want to deal with this crap. I need people that communicate.

    He wrote back:
    It's the fucking weekend dude, I'm not going to be connected at the hip 24/7 because some asshole thinks he warrants it. Tell you what, I'm done putting programming time in to create these, I'll just give you your money back. You'll have it by Tuesday.


    Note he just started cursing at me and calling names after I asked him twice over 2 days for response or my money back. He only sent me 9 dollars and a penny claiming he couldn't send any more. Note also it's now Wednesday and still no response or refund from this guy. Also, he's now complete off gchat. He's probably some con artist going under other names. I'm for now leaving his name off and mine as well. However, if anyone else has dealt with this con artist please post or feel free to PM me. Thanks!

    Well not to be a stick in the mud but captchaman has done business with me and never done me wrong. Im not saying that he did not rip you off. But he has always done straight forward honest business with me.

    What do you want for proofs? Look I already posted the last lines he wrote and I wrote. It's just a matter of 15 or 20, however, the mods should look into this because I'm sure he's ripping people off all over.

    If you mean I have to go and document every chat logs, show proof my payment, and all that ... I'm not gonna do it. That takes time, and he's already ripped me off. Still NO REPLY and NO REFUND.

    No working out, he just takes the money and runs. I sent him a nasty note reminding him that word of mouth travels fast. We'll see ...

    over 15 or 20 bucks you are better off to forget it and write it off as charity bro. You are causing yourself a lot of stress over pennies. I know there is the principle of the matter but isn't your time more valuable than spending it being stressed out by this guy?

    seems petty. The guy delivered a sub par product but also partially refunded you. Scammers dont issue partial refunds. I think your just pissed that he didnt kiss your ass and respond immediately to your every beck and call. Now your wasting your time and energy over $9. like I said, seems petty.

    LOL. Hey man, leave your cheerleading for captchaman comments at the door! Not sub par. NO product at all, plus a bunch of insults from him. He owes me about $15, but if I was dumb enough to pay him more he'd also not be refunding. The guy is a con artist. What's your point of defending him?

    WTF? Right, so it's better to let people "go" if the dollar amount is low. THen, they can rip off more people for low amounts of money OR ripoff people for larger amounts? This forum is lucky to have a few honest people like me. The next person that captchaman would be ripping off will be THANKING me.

    You said he delivered the emails but they died. So he did deliver a product albeit a sub par one. I don't know the guy personally and have never dealt with him. Never heard of him til now. Im not defending him personally but lets face it, your a new member and have not shown any proofs. Furthermore it looks like he has a pretty fair rep here with a couple positive itraders. Why should I even believe you with no proofs? You could just be pissed cause he was a dick to you. I would like to hear what he has to say about this...

    IMO this goes on too much around here. I see it all the time. "Oh let that guy go". "Chalk it up" "Life goes on". Meanwhile, the number of bad traders gets higher and higher and more and more get ripped off for more and more money.

    PS. Partial refund is a scam. Not delivering the product at all is a scam. I didn't ask for a partial refund. I demanded a full refund. Plus, he lied and said he'd refund on Tuesday and he never did! Is this really the kind of person you want trading about the forum?!

    He'll probably come on here like many other well known scammers have done with personal attacks and unrelated stuff for me to DISTRACT everyone from simple fact.

    1) He didn't deliver the product at all
    2) He didn't refund, and still hasn't

    Bad emails are a SERIOUS problem, and anyone that's bought them from various people here can tell you that. I could make a damn good income selling scammy emails created with bots from few IP's to people around here if I had no ethics. Many unfortunately do, and it's basically what this guy did.

    Nobody can expect a mail account to last forever, but it should at least last for ONE email ... and really for more than that. His were DOA. DOA is a scam. Here , on Ebay, or anywhere else. Would you like to buy $25 worth of emails from me that are going to be dead and useless before you get them? Heck, I could just fake a list of mails. It's called a scam, and he needs to be called out on it.:pirate:

    So you received the emails you paid for, paid him more than he asked because his price was low and are now bitching because after you sent him a nasty email he wont talk to you? Lets be clear on this.

    The last thing I will say is this, and no offense to you, I don't know you either. But as much as we cant have scammers running around, we also cant let every newb with 10 posts under his belt start shitlisting reputable members without proof. So in closing, Proofs or GTFO.
