Here is the link to the thread which this post pertains to http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...your-investment-quickly-surest-thing-bhw.html Profile: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/276795-enlightenedone.html Summary : He requested investments from multiple members of BHW to promote and advertise his company. I had originally sent $1,400 to him which was suppose to be at least doubled after 30 days. 30 days passed and he messaged me on Skype saying that the payout was ready but investors had a chance to reinvest for 30% over 6 months. I agreed to the reinvestment since I did not need the money urgently and it was better than sitting in my bank account. Here is when it gets suspicious, he begins to take his time with his so called contract which ended up taking 45 days total and as you know paypal dispute has a time limit of 45 days. At this point he has disappeared off of Skype and BHW. It has been weeks now and no other investors has been able to contact him and he has put no effort to contact us. All the numbers he provided either goes to straight to voicemail or does not work at all now. In case anyone says I should have taken further precautions, he had originally provided a contract and phone number. He had already sent me $1,400 through paypal after the 30 days so I had no reason not to believe him. For future investors in the JV section, I advise you to get proof of their address and name of any investments you plan on making with others because someone that is legit should have no problem with doing that. I believe this MUST be enforced in a section that deals with large sum of money by mods. I do not understand why the owner and mods allow the JV section to be a public area where no verification is required because for the past months there has been so many scams already. This allows people to freely scam others with no consequences and people will continue to come and scam others because nothing is enforced. For now all that scammers get is a slap on the wrist and a ban from the forums when you can easily just make another account and begin again. I have no intention of providing people with money anymore for their business in the JV section as long as there are no enforced rules. There are only a few legit running threads in the section and the rest is complete scams. If anyone has any further information about anything related to him, please let me know as I will personally go travel and find him to get him so I can get the police associated. Right now he is either in California or Florida based on what he has told me and his public profile says which isn't too far from me.
