    I have given him multiple chances to redeem himself. I worked on a website for him that I later found out was his Uncle. I then found out he wasn't even a citizen of the USA and was something like 16 (?)

    Yes it is partly my fault for not verifying any of his credentials. I am not sure what his name is on here I could not find one under the same name. I do know his Mom lives in "Boston" could be Ma., not sure though.

    I did not use any generator. I have all my logs stating what happened. Your words are meaningless.

    It worked great in IE. It did not work in IE6 because CSS dropdowns, etc., just don't work in IE6, JScript hacks are required for that.

    In fact, it worked great in Safari, not sure what you are talking about? Worked fine in IE7, 8, Chrome, and Safari.

    Lastly, you paid me $35? Great! Where is it? It never hit MY PayPal account. I would love to see screenshots and Transaction ID's stating ou even paid me that. In fact, if you can prove you even remotely sent me money I would be surprised. I still have an open invoice with you.

    bro you need to get ban. Remember Fobbie whatever you do to others something 10x worst will happen to you. And when someone takes you for a ride i hope you have this same attitude of laughter and being lackadaisical about it.

    On top of all of this, he failed himself.

    Chrome did come out on 9-2-08... 08...08...2008...That's over a year before I did this work. So no, not fail, Chrome was out for a year prior to me doing this work.

    He already admitted he scammed me. Also, here's the latest logs from AIM...

    What a joker. When I was 17 I started my own Console Repair/Modding biz...never would have done anything like this.


    me: so now you are lying and making up BS stories. On top of that you are saying you paid me $35. Excellent.
    fob1kdotcom: link me.

    9:54 PM me: are you retarded bro

    that's almost 2 years ago

    This is why it is important to verify the credentials of who you work with/for, take at least half-upfront, and unless they prove to be trustworthy avoid working with minors or you might end up with a scumbag like fobbie.

    I hope you get old enough to meet a girl you love and have babies. Then when you're at work one day I hope the house catches on fire and burns everything you ever loved.
