It took me a lot of courage to create this dispute thread with Sartre (Jacob Swift). Honestly I'm ashamed of myself for trusting him by paying for his AI website creation service and also bringing my friend onboard. I am a very careful person, that's why my friend even trusted me and invested also because he knew I must have done my due diligence.
Yes, I blame myself for trusting him which was stupid of me and I will take full responsibility whatever the outcome will be. I know other victims that are yet to come out and open a dispute thread are still in disbelief that he has actually scammed them and are probably thinking what is the point opening a dispute thread since his account in BHW is blocked. Will there be any solution?

He promised to get me and my friend's AI sites he created into Mediavine within 6 months which Mediavine requires 50k monthly visits. He confidently said If, after 6 months, our sites are not ready to apply to Mediavine or is not very close to getting there, he will refund the entire sum of money. He charged us $13,000 each for 2 AI sites because we were doing more than one AI websites.

First transaction of $7500 I made on 2022-11-27
Second transaction of $5,500 I made on 2023-01-30
First $5,000 payment by my friend on 2022-12-08
Second $8,000 payment by my friend on 2023-01-22

Since none of the AI websites he created for me and my friend got any reasonable searches or views we told him no point for us waiting till 6 months because 4 months was gone already without any improvement. He insisted I should wait till May. He stopped responding or replying to my chats ending of April. That day is was spamming everyone's inbox's here in BHW, was the day my friend sent him is Crypto wallet and told my friend he only has $2,000 to send him, that his money will take some time to get to exchange from his bank to balance up. Later that day my friend received $2,000 refund with a balance of $11,000 Sartre still owes my friend while he owes me $13,000.
His account was never hacked or compromised, he did that on purpose because he does not want to make a refund to his customers, he rather started spamming using his BHW account which he knew he will be blocked and it will aid his exit scam.

$2,000 refund he made to my friend on 2023-04-27

I know he is reading this dispute thread with another BHW account. I respect your brilliancy a lot even though you think you have fooled me. I will still tell you what I told you in chat that "A good name is better than riches". You might think you're invisible or untouchable but sincerely you are not.

Admin please let me know if you want more proofs.

If a website can reach 50k visitors/month in 6 months, it can do $5k/month in a year. Selling such service for $10K doesn't even make sense. If you fail, you just spent several thousands on a website, if it succeeds, congrats you made $5-6K profit. I would cut the client out of the equation and build 30-40 websites for myself. Its pretty evident his trash A.I website wouldn't rank and It was obviously a huge scam from the get go.
 
OP, I’m sorry for your loss. Losing 13k is a huge blow and crypto transactions are traceable, so don’t give up. Report this to the police, especially if you live in Europe or the US. Also there are many savvy guys expert at tracking crypto transactions you can ask help from.

@Sartre, if you’re reading this, I understand that you might have financial problems or family issues, but scamming is not the answer. Even if your AI related methods stopped workimg after chatgpt came out or after Google’s updates, you could still find new ways to earn money legitimately as you’re smart and experienced enough to do that.

This shows again why BHW needs a new way to ensure safe transactions on the forum. Trusted middlemen are essential to protect both buyers and sellers. @BassTrackerBoats
 
I would like to hope that @Sartre comes back & handles this. That’s the part of my brain responsible for wishful thinking. Like when you’ve put in very little work in attempts at ranking for a competitive niche.


The logical part of myself understands that this was a long con and I’m sorry for those of you who were had.

Hats off to @BassTrackerBoats for handling this.
 
you can get scammed with middleman/escrow as well. google and read all the examples.

Sure but how much using an escrow can prevent scams ? I guess it can decrease scams hugely , while some scams will still happen, and it will make enough sense to implement that.

Hardly likely if you were involved in selecting the escrow.

Yes, evidence seems to point now, that this was planned in advance.Careless though, because if followed up offline, its possible to do jail time.

Doesn't matter what escrow service you work with. You can either be scammed by the middleman or the other party/parties.
Escrow doesn't solve scams

Hmm, wondering how the other party can scam in an escrow.Isn't that what the escrow was meant to prevent in the first place? methinks in a properly constituted escrow, only the middleman can really scam - hence his importance.

search "escrow scam". so many ways escrow can go wrong, from part of the middleman/escrow to the counterparty
