    ~User barnone100 claimed to be owned $72,939. "He told me if I gave him $2k then he could start paying me back faster what he already owes. I said giving him more money makes no sense and he called me uncooperative."~

    ...that's really funny :439:

    Code:
    "When I opened the Skype group for investors, he tried to spy on us,  insulted me and said that I won't get any payments. I think some  investors were/still are afraid that he won't pay them, so they better  didn't participate in any action against him. I would like every  investor to go to his local police and file a report. Most don't do  this, because they think their investment is too small or that the local  police isn't going to help them."
     Despite the hesitancy from "most" investors, a few large investors  have notified the police. Several are skeptical about the speed with  which the police will work and they've supplemented them by hiring a  private investigator. The P.I. is currently working on locating chailak  who, consensus says, is most likely in Turkey today.
    
    
    
    Anyone knows if something happened on the latest 4 years regards this case? Any update? :)

    Destroys reputation. Quite a few people were involved in it.

    It's quite a true story. Everyone was talking about it back then. Here and other forums ~
    Best not talk about it.

    haha, I wonder how could ANYONE trust money to a Turkish man living in Ukraine. Don't want to sound racist but this alone SCREAMS of scam.

    Regarding everything else, "if it's too good to be true, it probably is"

    I'm living on a country with a reputation even worse, man. But that it doesnt mean I'm a scammer.
    Don't judge ppl by country ;)

    obviously those unlucky investors had followed this advice :)

    Doesn't mean you are a scammer bc you don't post "too good to be true" offers in internet. If you were a Turk living in Ukraine and posting such offers, the chance of you being a scammer would rise significantly. Long story why.

    wow that was a very interesting story, still amazes me how a lot of people fall for this, sad to see so many people lose their hard earned money though, on another forum last year i saw this happen however he only managed to scam 25k which is still quite a bit of money.

    I remember reading about this a couple of months ago.

    People tend to forget, if something sounds too good to be true, it ALWAYS is.

    I'm reluctant to say this, because it happened on BHW, but there will never be a short supply of gullible morons for the morally deranged to take advantage of.

    Actually Chailak is on another level. CEO Sam is more of a troll/loser/

    This was a huge scam. I just joined BHW when this was top thread. I also remember who was the guy that posted 2nd or 3rd into that thread saying how Chailak was knowledgeable guy (supposedly they talked through Skype and Chailak laid out a method to him, the ways he will earn money, stuff like that..) and how people should invest with him.

    Why isn't the same for the Americans?
    "You're living on USA, a very expensive country, you need to scam a lot of people to live decent"

    It's useless to say that the FIRST PONZI SCHEME was on new england ;)

    All sorts of crazy stuff happened on here way back when, at least from what I've gathered from some digging into older threads.

    For example:

    There was a member back in 2008-2009 named madinaz. Judging by threads such as this he was a mod as well in his later time on the boards.

    In August 2009 he posted this thread. It had long been known that he was going through cancer or something similar. Relatively confirmed in this post in the thread (also this post).

    In late September that same year a thread titled For Madinaz popped up, along with a random blog called RIP Madinaz.

    A couple weeks later, this happens:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/126341-madinazs-death-fake.html

    Most people don't believe the new member. But then Pofecker (who a year or so later actually did die), posted this:

    And then this thread comes up:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/shit-list/133060-madinaz-scammer.html

    He faked his own death and ran off with a good bit of coin. It looks like scamming from high-level members was a very common occurrence before HaRRo was ousted and Damien bought the site. It sure isn't the Wild West any more here on BHW.
