    Before i Start its Nothing Personal, Just Business:

    Cyrus Virus:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/63076-cyrusvirus.html

    Cyrus I tried to get into contact with you numerous times, Had BTB try and get a hold of you, No response.

    The agreement was to make me a website for $1500

    I have Paid you over $1k and all that is up is a theme (which I could have found myself if thats what you were going to charge me to "make a site")

    Every Few Days I got the typical runaround ( i have every msgn convo i ever Conducted with him for proof) of "ya man im workin on it, almost done" or "ya just give me a list of what else needs to get done, by friday it will be officially done".

    Not only was some of the work not $1500 material, many fridays came and went and still no site is done, just your basic theme that was changed once.

    Not only that, This project was started the beginning of March, You told me it will take 5-6 wks, and here we are at 8 wks with JUST A THEME.

    Now i jump on here and See you have time to Come on and Close your Auto Forum thread due to "high customer demand" but cant respond to my msngers?

    I see you were on BHW today. But couldnt hop on and give me a heads up of what is going on?

    I see you on mesgnr (anthropology) but can tell your appearing offline by the shading of your name...here is a pic i just took of it..




    Maybe Now i Have your Attention, and i Can pry some type of communication out of you..

    I hope this turns out to be just a misunderstanding. There have been too many scams reported lately. CyrusVirus has a high post count and has been around for a while so maybe he's got some personal issues.
    But I'm sure we'll find out soon.

    1500 is a lot of money in any ones terms ( Ive charged over 12K for one site, but then again they wanted everything including the kitchen sink in it )

    Hope it's simply a misunderstanding.

    Have you notified him on this shit list? Maybe he haven't responded because he still doesn't know.

    good luck with resolving it

    i don't understand why sellers risk their reputation and let it escalate this far

    its a lot of money to give on trust
    but some users see the donor rank and
    trust it.
    agreed thunder possibly loose a sales thread when
    a simple pm reply updates the buyer, not to much
    to ask.. right ?

    I know Cirus has been around for a while now but surely he is aware of this thread
    by now and clearly should have responded in some way.
    @Cirus, be a stand up guy and answer the op. Fucking up is not a crime but blatant
    scamming is. If you cant do the job admit it and make arrangements to make good.
    Remember you can run but you can't run away from yourself.

    I really suggest people use freelancer.com for orders this big. At least you can use their escrow feature and dispute mechanism if you run into trouble. BHW has no such equivalent feature which is too bad.

    I know cyrus was in some financial difficulty but I didn't think he would resort to this. Hopefully he comes in and clears things up.

    yeah for sure. i wouldnt pay someone more than $1k on here just because if you get screwed, theres really nothing you can do..especially with all the scams that have been going on. I remember seeing a thread from cyrus saying he needed $1500 in 3 days or something or else he gets kicked out, but I think that thread was deleted, not sure. He's actually online right now so lets see if he responds..
