    Bought 5000 scraped emails from him, responded very intelligently.

    He didn't have many posts so i could have saw the signs, but I don't either so i figured I'd give the guy a chance.

    Said the list would be in my email box by monday night. It is now sunday afternoon and i have still yet to have any of my emails responded to.

    i could bitch and act mad, like I am, but ill spare all you guys that.

    Just know don't buy from the user DaBella. Don't even show him love if he decides to post ever again lol.

    Dabella: if you see this you better respond ASAP. Don't even post on this thread first...contact me...and have an apology ready, I'm losing business because of you.

    I've never been scammed once here. You need to talk to people and feel them out first - just like anywhere online. There are usually signs someone is full of BS or a scammer so just be aware :)

    I usually don't comment on SL threads, but why in the hell would you buy scraped emails? Why not just scrape them yourself?

    I don't have the knowledge or the software or the time/money it takes to get both

    They were targeted local business emails that I was going to use for an offline business.

    In retrospect, yeah I probably just should have learned to do it myself.

    I got scammed by "DaBella" aswell.

    I paid this person $250 in advance on paypal hehe, how fucking stupid can I be, i'm becoming to lazy to test people :D

    but, I think i will win the dispute in paypal anyway, my account in there is trusted for years, with zillions of $$

    this is his paypal + email :

    Seller's Name: Oriole Web Works
    Seller's Email: oriolewebworks@live.com

    I just filed for a dispute with paypal as well. that's the same email he used with me.

    Is there anyway that we can both work together on this to make sure we get the money back? I am new to paypal disputes.

    *were red flags

    I'm not proud that I fell for this, which I think I've clearly expressed when I first made the thread. It could have been avoided for sure, but I could play "what if" all day its not going to help anything. Its over now and i put it past me...now just waiting on PP to act on my dispute.

    Yea live and learn. Hopefully you didn't pay too much. As for an email scraper, there are tons of free/available ones out there. And most of them are set and forget so it doesn't really take too much time.

    i wasnt taking the piss
    i was only stating its been said all over bhw
    never ever buy from anyone unless they have
    an approved sales thread
    because if u get scammed its not bhw fault
    the rules are there to guide you
