    Hi, i created a thread in this section for my project. A guy named botmasterz pmed me his skype. We talked and he asked to deposit $24, I did. Then he asked me create a dispute in paypal and close the case, I did. Now he disappeared. Its been 3 days. Now i attempted to dispute the transaction but no success because case already closed. Please be aware of such scammers. If they ask you advanced money, please select goods with physical shipping and donot do the second step lol, fool of me.

    I am not crying for money, but pretty hurt to know that such people exist on this blue planet and they earn their livelihood by scamming people.

    More details:



    His skyp3: botmasterz

    BHW Profile: botmasterz (can't post url, name is exact with some usa flag, he replies on every freelancer post and scams them



    Be safe, Regards, Anon

    Hi, i attempted to post there, but it gives me an error (maybe because i am a newbie).
    However, i would be grateful if some mod moves it there.

    He's a well known scammer, he will be back.

    For a small project always pay on completion with newer users with no legit iTrader history

    That's pretty clever because I think you can't re-open your dispute if you close it once.. that means you have lost your money and there's a very big chance that you won't get it back. I'd suggest showing that image to PayPal support and make sure you call them if possible. Calling them will make everything easier and faster.
