    First of all, I'd like to state that I never want to make shitlist threads - it wastes my time and makes me feel bad for the guy who scammed.

    Accused member is http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/600192-sumarijah.html, who goes by the name of Craig Lewis on Skype.

    About two months ago, I created a WTB thread on this forum, because I wanted to buy a domain information bot, basically a web scraper. Then this guy PMed me and wanted to talk on Skype, and so we both agreed on the price of 50$. 25$ as upfront payment was to be given. I asked him if I could see the first version of the bot, because he told me when I sent full payment he would give me the fully functional bot. So I tested the bot once or twice. I then sent him his upfront payment. He was supposed to give me the bot a week after, but he barely ever goes on Skype, so I don't know if he ran away with my money, or just had a problem with Skype. Multiple messages on Skype were ignored, or not read. I wanted to give him time because I know everyone is busy with their life - but two months is just too much. Here's the convo on Skype (on request of mods I will provide image proofs)

    Christian: Me
    Code:

    [8/13/2013 7:20:47 PM] Christian: As of yesterday, I spent some money on purchasing over 10+ services, so I don't have the money right now
    [8/13/2013 7:20:54 PM] Christian: I'll have it next week at most
    [8/13/2013 7:21:29 PM] Craig Lewis: lol
    [8/13/2013 7:22:38 PM] Craig Lewis: I have been scammed twice in BHW, if you scam on me, then this become my 3rd

    [8/13/2013 7:23:53 PM] Christian: Mate, I don't even have your updated software
    [8/13/2013 7:24:11 PM] Christian: If it makes you feel comfortable to have 25$ right now you can have it, that's all I have atm
    [8/13/2013 7:25:07 PM] Craig Lewis: I have finished the update 2 days ago
    [8/13/2013 7:25:41 PM] Christian: You can send it later when I have paid 50$ to you
    [8/13/2013 7:26:40 PM] Craig Lewis: okay, well I have been scammed on BHW twice, so apologize if I'm being srakastic
    [8/13/2013 7:31:00 PM] Craig Lewis: here is my paypal id : g10ck@yahoo.com
    [8/13/2013 7:31:16 PM] Christian: I'll send full amount when I can
    [8/13/2013 7:33:47 PM] Craig Lewis: I will be more confortable if you could send me $25, I need to ensure my self that your are a legit mate.
    [8/13/2013 7:34:56 PM] Christian: Look, I don't even have the software I want - so I don't have anything I want yet, how do you expect me to scam you?
    [8/13/2013 7:35:11 PM] Christian: Since the beginning you were nervous about everything and it's not something I appreciate
    [8/13/2013 7:37:03 PM] Craig Lewis: hey, you have already download the first version, and you ask me to sepnet my time for nothing..??? get real. and you said that you will pay me for the next 2 days, I waited..and what do I get..?? you said you sepnt your money for other thing..
    [8/13/2013 7:37:06 PM] Craig Lewis: thats bullshit
    [8/13/2013 7:38:25 PM] Christian: I sent you the money
    [8/13/2013 7:38:38 PM] Christian: Now please stop complaining to me

    [3:55:55 PM] Christian: Are you here?? I still haven't got the bot you promised me.
    [5:56:56 PM] Christian: Alright, shitlisting you now. Have a good day.
    This is all I could find from our logs. The older messages were too old to be even in the logs. I'm surprised why thought. Anyways, we can see in this log that I seemed like I wanted to avoid paying him, but at that time I was fully out of money - it was my fault. I then paid him his money, proof is here:

    From what I understand this is rather a lack of communication, but I'm not even sure.

    Thanks for banning him. May I ask if there is anyway I can dispute this with Paypal?

    Cheers!

    PayPal got a 45 or 60 day refund guaranteed period. If you made the payment before that date, i really doubt you can get your money back.
