    I wanted to get some Amazon reviews done, https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/verified-us-amazon-reviews-seo.999479/ and he added me to Skype.

    I offered to do a test order of 5 reviews. Before I even paid he had apparently placed 2 orders. Then he asked me to pay him with a method that I did not have, nor was comfortable with so I declined. He proceeded to spam call my Skype many times so I blocked him.

    Later I found out he placed 7 spammed 1* reviews, so I re-added him found his order in Amazon and refunded them. I offered him an additional $100 on top of these reviews.

    He then removed the reviews and told me to pay him $1,000. Then he proceeded to spit out some gibberish that was impossible to understand (he always seemed to be speaking some random version of English). When I refused after some time he reposted the negative reviews.

    I'm not looking for any help resolving this, just want other sellers to stay away from this guy as he is clearly off his rocker.

    I found him - he had already been banned and then opened a new account here which I just banned.

    A suggestion for you though. Remove the skype from your profile and when you request something in the hire a freelancer or want to buy sections, say you want the people to PM you.

    Should someone that does not have a paid membership offer to sell you products or services just hit the report button. They have nothing to lose and often scam.

    If it is a person with a paid membership they don't want to lose their membership fee and are much more likely to be on the up and up.

    And if a person is not a paid member they are not allowed to sell on here anyway.

    I think this shitlist is resolved so not breaking a rule.

    I think you will pass the buck to the higher above (no offence, I know its a change you can't do) - Why not block the Skype option for non-Jr Vips?

    Surely it would slow spam and scams from scrapers and scammers?

    Hence why I said slow it down, not stop :)

    I hear what you're saying but I run a couple of Xenforo boards myself and can be done.

    @BassTrackerBoats - just FYI - I got scammed once by a Jr VIP (I told @Apricot about it when that happened about a year ago).
    Though you mods are doing fantastic work here, and you are all very highly appreciated, we still get scammed in the forum.
    I personally see a big difference between the risks here compared to the good old times of 2011-2012. Now it is much more risky, with many scams like the OP just experienced.
    I got hit also by a AMZ amazon promoter, same story as the OP - the talk went to skype etc...

    I think we should find a way together as a community to raise the bar, go back to the good old professional times on BHW.

    Again,
    I really appreciate you mods, but those scammers have the numbers :(

    You should open a shitlist whenever you get scammed, not just for your benefit but also for the communities.

    The problem with this Sadekul Islam is that he even had the guts to use Amazon' messaging and contact sellers with at attached image - about his so-called service.

    What he is doing is simple. Delivers 2 or 3 real reviews, and charges for 20.

    When you complain too much - he threatens to post negative ones...
