    The owner of powerhousebids.com has owed me 84.00$ for sending him leads for almost 6 months. He started completely ignoring me after numerous times trying to get him to pay up. I completely understand that the amount of money in question is trivial but I feel that the principle of the matter is what needs to be considered. He has had tons of excuses about his paypal/alertpay account being frozen, etc etc, having done business with over 100 networks in the past year, I've heard them all. Here's some skype chatlogs for your reading pleasure.

    [9/10/2010 12:01:38 PM] Thomas: Hi, today is the 10th, can you paypal my balance to xxxxx@gmail.com so I can start sending
    [9/10/2010 12:04:41 PM] Thomas : Let me know once it is sent thanks
    [9/10/2010 12:05:20 PM] David: Hey..... I can send via alert pay anytime. I have to ask my gf to send paypal.
    [9/10/2010 12:05:37 PM] Thomas : Ok let me know
    [9/10/2010 12:05:40 PM] David: Let me see what I can do today
    [9/10/2010 12:05:52 PM] David: It was 81 right...
    [9/10/2010 12:06:08 PM] Thomas : you said 84 but whatever :)
    [9/10/2010 12:06:12 PM] David: Okay 84
    [9/10/2010 12:06:22 PM] Thomas : alright let me know when its sent
    [9/10/2010 12:06:22 PM] David: :)
    [9/10/2010 12:09:30 PM] Thomas : Try to get it out today, it will help both of us a ton
    [9/11/2010 1:02:09 PM] Thomas : Hi..
    [9/11/2010 1:02:14 PM] Thomas: were you able to send the money you owe me?
    [9/11/2010 1:03:07 PM] David: She doesnt have it in paypal....
    [9/11/2010 1:03:51 PM] David: I am transfering into my bank account monday so when i have it I will send itoff my credit card directly to your paypal.
    [9/11/2010 1:04:03 PM] Thomas : So how are you paying all your affiliates?
    [9/11/2010 1:04:07 PM] Thomas : It's been like months man..
    [9/11/2010 1:04:32 PM] David: I pay via check mostly.... The affilaite program just started 3 weeks ago.

    [9/11/2010 1:05:02 PM] Thomas : So on Monday you'll be able to pay me?
    [9/11/2010 1:05:09 PM] David: Should be Tueasday
    [9/11/2010 1:05:18 PM] Thomas : Wait I need a definite day..
    [9/11/2010 1:05:20 PM] Thomas : Tuesday?
    [9/11/2010 1:05:35 PM] Thomas : I'm going to hold you to whatever day you say
    [9/11/2010 1:05:49 PM] David: Do you have alert pay?

    [9/17/2010 11:35:35 AM] David: I can pay with alert pay
    [9/17/2010 11:35:41 AM] David: I cant pay with paypal
    [9/17/2010 11:35:54 AM] Thomas : You SPECIFICALLY told me that you would have it done by Tuesday.
    [9/17/2010 11:36:35 AM] David: I do not have any access to a paypal account
    [9/17/2010 11:36:44 AM] Thomas : Ok, don't worry about it then.
    [9/17/2010 11:36:54 AM] David: No i will pay you, I will find a way
    [9/17/2010 11:36:58 AM] David: I owe you I know it
    [9/17/2010 11:37:04 AM] David: I am not a deadbeat

    I did this long before he had any affiliate program or "minimum payout". In fact, I was the first person ever to send traffic to his site besides him sending himself. I spent hours on the phone training him on CL and other methods for promotion, which he then went and shared with anyone that could potentially send him traffic. Guys like this are a plague, and you coming in here stating something completely irrelevant only exacerbates the situation. Also, if you read the chat you would see he readily admits to owing me the money and that he was working towards paying it. This is Thomas's personal assistant talking since he doesn't have time to respond to every post on this thread or every network that owes him money, but I really felt it was necessary to respond to that.

    I know David, and have never had any issues with him. I am sure it is a misunderstanding. Starting a shit list over $84 is kind of gay anyways.

    I send traffic for that website. I just talked to David about this on Skype. I have never had a problem being able to get payment for a LOT more than $84.00. The fact I can send traffic a lot of different ways and its allowed is awesome. He did say he would pay you by Alert Pay. Alert Pay is free to open an account. Why didn't you just open one up I did. Anyway, I like the program. I make great money with it and David has always been great to me.

    [9/11/2010 149 PM] David: Do you have alert pay?
    [9/11/2010 159 PM] David: I have it available there.
    [9/11/2010 115 PM] Thomas : No I don't..

    Hey, if I let every 80 dollars that people owe me slip by, I'd be owed 1000s per week.. Give me a break and don't try to tell me what's gay and what's not.. I'm sure you can understand with your petty CL posting business that makes 1$ per post that 80$ can surely add up.. lol

    OH LOL, and CLAD genius consulting.. yea, 84$ is gay eh?

    That's exactly why I stopped giving professional advice for free.
    At one period, I was giving marketing consultancy (Affiliate marketing in particular) for "free".

    I was the one contacted because people know me in the indutsry (Locally), went to meetings and spent lots of time giving free advice (PROFESSIONAL advice). I used to say - OK. Let the client understand that I am a real professional and then we move forward.. Don't need to be cheap on pennies.

    But that's where I was wrong. People want free advice and are usually not willing to pay for professional service. I charge $75-$100 per hour locally and I am half priced according to my reputation. Just bcz I am a cool person.

    But nowadays I give nothing. There is no more free advice. I invoice everyone for everything.
    The same happens in oDesk, elance, etc... I was approached by 2 people from oDesk + Spent at least one hour with each when eventually they took my advice and went with $4 per hour Indian people. (No offence).

    That's business. Don't reach a position where you need to "give up" $XX. You go nowhere this way.. Not to mention that people are CHEAP and GREEDY by nature.

    Update: David paid 17.00$ , has been ignoring me since. This guy is really the definition of the type of person you really should avoid in IM.

    I was not going to say anything but this bashing others has to stop. Op stated that the guy never paid him, he had his proof, he posted here I am guessing to warn others, now, what you consider to be big money depends, lets not go after one another cause that is not the point. We our all adults, belong to bhw, and have separate businesses so let us be above all the name calling that belongs to other forums and lets go at the task at hand which is the money the OP is owed. I hope you get it, just tell him if your not going to pay me and keep ignoring my im's i will have a collection agency to get my money. Off my soapbox.

    Newbs like you are the people who should care.. You really think that the only shitlist threads should be people getting ripped for 1000s of dollars? All those people who scam for huge amounts all started out not paying small amounts, so this guy could potentially be the shitlist thread you will care about. Please stick to posting about your B&M business and other more "profitable" ventures. /sarcasm

    Thanks.

    He.s perfectly entitled to put him in the shitlist. He.s a Conman in my opinion so make no mistake.. the 80 odd dollars he could owe that man could VERY easily turn into 80k next week when he doesnt pay anyone..
    I,d personally stay well clear of clowns like this..
    U say 80 odd dollars why put his name in the shit
    I say 80 dollars to never be put on it is money well invested !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
