    blackhatq This son of bitch asked me to code a craiglist email scraper.After conversations we agreed at a price of $250.I asked for a upfront which he refused.Anyway i developed the bot for him.And provide him with sample run for the city of boston.
    and than he kept me waiting telling that he is waiting for her partner to verify the emails..than finally after 10 days he says that some other guy is offering the similar bot for $xx so i wont pay you.

    My suggestion dont work with him..or you are risking your hard earned money.
    Thanks

    I knew that guy was gonna keep scamming and be put here eventually. Thanks for bringing it up risefromdeath.

    Back in June he asked me to clone a site for him and then make two videos, all of which I did. A few days later when I had everything ready and asked for payment, he said he'd hired someone else to clone the site at the same time as he'd hired me to do it and that he had forgotten about it. He made me waste my time by doing both jobs, which by the way the videos weren't part of his original request on the Hire a Freelancer section, and then paid me a few bucks for the video work. I told him he had to compensate with something for making me do a job he didn't need me to do and offered him to at least give him the site's graphics in exchange. He agreed and then started making excuses not to pay me.

    A few weeks after that he left me an itrader out of the blue and said some shit about being honest and wanting to pay me for the site, which again, he never did.

    Here are his details:

    Name on his paypal: george okungu
    Paypal email: george_phillip@thegeorgephillipgroup.com
    Other email: money.marketing85@gmail.com

    Beware if someone with those details contacts you. He's definitely a scammer.

    I asked you for a craigslist scraper.

    You said you had one. I asked you the price. You said $250. I told you it was high.

    I told you I found another scraper for $50, its called CLsoftpro.

    You then dropped your price to $100. Feel free to copy and paste the entire conversation here.

    Its only a scam when money is transferred and 1 person does not get what they intended to get. I told you numerous times, I was sourcing for someone else.

    What kind of idiot would pay $250 for something that is available for $50, and given you dropped your price to $100 when you realised you were over charging ?

    I'm sorry for not throwing away my $250 on something I can get for $50. If you want to sell it to me for $100, I can find you a buyer. But I cannot give you $50.

    here is the a part from conversastion

    Code:
    [7/9/2010 5:42:36 PM] CashandKhaled: can u script a craiglist scraper? that scrapes every single page ?
    [7/9/2010 5:42:41 PM] CashandKhaled: for a particular city
    [7/9/2010 5:42:53 PM] CashandKhaled: retrieves email addresses, and stores in a database.
    [7/9/2010 5:43:18 PM] Ankit: Yup
    [7/9/2010 5:43:24 PM] CashandKhaled: cost ?
    [7/9/2010 5:43:29 PM] Ankit: Spcially desgined for craiglist only?
    [7/9/2010 5:43:34 PM] CashandKhaled: yes
    [7/9/2010 5:43:48 PM] CashandKhaled: because craigslist has so many boards for each city
    [7/9/2010 5:43:53 PM] Ankit: All pages of a particular city correct?
    [7/9/2010 5:43:59 PM] Ankit: yeah
    [7/9/2010 5:44:05 PM] CashandKhaled: yes
    [7/9/2010 5:44:11 PM] Ankit: Both masked plus unmasked emails?
    [7/9/2010 5:44:18 PM] CashandKhaled: yes
    [7/9/2010 5:44:39 PM] Ankit: $275
    [7/9/2010 5:44:41 PM] Ankit: Two days needed
    [7/9/2010 5:45:20 PM] CashandKhaled: Your price is kinda high ?
    [7/9/2010 5:45:30 PM] CashandKhaled: Can we bring that down. And how soon is a demo available ?
    [7/9/2010 5:45:45 PM] Ankit: It will scrape all sections of a particular city
    [7/9/2010 5:45:47 PM] Ankit: all ads
    [7/9/2010 5:45:54 PM] Ankit: i guess thats a resonable price
    [7/9/2010 5:46:06 PM] CashandKhaled: Excellent, sounds good, how soon can you have a demo and $200 works better
    [7/9/2010 5:46:11 PM] Ankit: Demo will be avaialbe in two days
    [7/9/2010 5:46:15 PM] CashandKhaled: ok
    [7/9/2010 5:46:34 PM] Ankit: $250 is the last i can offer
    [7/9/2010 5:47:08 PM] Ankit: Will need some upfront payment to get started if that isnt an issue
    [7/9/2010 5:51:33 PM] CashandKhaled: How much do you need upfront
    [7/9/2010 5:51:48 PM] CashandKhaled: Because we rarely pay for tools we cannot demo first
    [7/9/2010 5:52:11 PM] Ankit: you have seen my other scripts working fine :)
    [7/9/2010 5:52:30 PM] Ankit: if you are more comfortable we can use freelancer.com excrow
    [7/9/2010 5:52:35 PM] Ankit: escrow
    [7/9/2010 5:52:36 PM] CashandKhaled: That is true, but this script is harder to make, there are several boards on craigslist.
    [7/9/2010 5:52:46 PM] CashandKhaled: There is no assurance your script will work as intended yet
    [7/9/2010 5:53:19 PM] Ankit: Agreed..but dont worry it will work..
    [7/9/2010 5:53:22 PM] Ankit: $100 upfront will do
    [7/9/2010 5:53:51 PM] Ankit: Or freelancer escrow is accepted as well without any issue
    [7/9/2010 5:55:02 PM] CashandKhaled: I havent used freelancer escrow before as the people i have always found on freelancer never perform
    [7/9/2010 5:55:32 PM] CashandKhaled: There will be no upfront fee, because quite frankly, If you do not deliver, then i would have lost $100. but i do like your previous work
    [7/9/2010 5:57:59 PM] Ankit: The thing is i just need assurance that you will buy the script after i spend hours working on it..hope you understand..
    [7/9/2010 5:59:57 PM] CashandKhaled: I understand but we can get a contract done
    [7/9/2010 6:00:03 PM] CashandKhaled: if it works as intended it will be purchased
    [7/9/2010 6:00:22 PM] CashandKhaled: if it can scrape every single page for all 52 states of usa (1 city at a time)
    [7/9/2010 6:00:39 PM] CashandKhaled: sorry, i meant every country.
    [7/9/2010 6:00:55 PM] CashandKhaled: scrape, create email entrys in dql db, and let me retrieve the emails in a .csv file daily.
    [7/9/2010 6:00:58 PM] CashandKhaled: then definitely purchase
    [7/9/2010 6:01:45 PM] Ankit: okay than i will contact you wheni have this basic stuff ready
    
    Dont lie around..i keep conversation details with my clients for months..i can even paste all talks you had with me in last 30 days.

    $250 is a rip off by itself for an email scraper.

    Always ask for the upfront. If they refuse, then it's a scam.

    Isn't paying 100% of your project upfront pretty dumb too?

    Unless you know their work then yes. But if you request them you normally do.

    I always ask for 50% upfront from a new customer.
    Any job after the first one, he pays only after testing it.
