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 1:29:52 AM] Craig Lewis: hi man[8/13/2013 1:29:55 AM] Craig Lewis: you there ?

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.
