    i was asking for a screenshot for paypal so i could flip a site
    got 3 older members with all around 50-250 posts offering to do it for free-$2
    which i took one of them up on there offer for $2
    then i got a PM from a noob with no posts at all saying he would do it for $25
    damn if it was going to take him an hour oe so to do the job i would have paid him that much but for a 2 minute job is just crazy
    now honestly for a 2 minute job how much would you charge a fellow BHatter
    i would charge $3-5 max he replied saying his time is worth a lot
    opinons please

    haha yeah just keep going.. you didn't lost anything but a few seconds.

    I know what you are saying, people always try to charge without knowing a realistic price.

    Well lots of greedy people haha, plus everyone wants to make EASY money. Too bad it rarely happens.

    It's not always about greed but sometimes lack of intelligence or experience.

    When you shop around you will start to notice that there are various ways different people will approach a problem, and they all have different fees associated with it.

    Example, you wanted a phony paypal screenshot which I can immediately think of 3 different ways to do:
    1- Edit the page directly on the browser.
    2- Save the HTML, edit it.
    3- Screenshot it, photoshop it.

    Three different ways to do the same exact job, three different levels of difficulty all requiring different amounts of time, thus all requiring different fees.

    BTW, I find it funny that you feel it acceptable to go around calling people noobs here when you have only been here 2 months and apparently lack the ability to fake your own screenshots. Also, a "real" blackhatter wouldn't need a fake paypal screenshot, they would actually be making real money, not faking it.

    Or maybe you should spend 10 minutes to learn how to do it yourself :). Laziness is expensive.
