    What Happened:

    FBPRO contacted me and offered to invite 110,000 American facebook users to my group and send me screenshots as proof for $150. We discussed it for a little while and I paid him $150 through paypal. After I paid him I tried to reply and tell him that I had sent payment, but he had already changed his settings so that he couldn't receive IMs. He had told me that he would be able to have it done and the proof sent within 3-5 hours so I waited until the next day and still no emailed proof and I still couldn't message him.

    At this point I knew that he had probably taken my money and ran so filed a paypal dispute. It was only after I filed it that he started to communicate back with me on paypal so that I didn't win it automatically. He said in our paypal communication that he had just sent proof to me and made up a bunch of lies about how I must be scamming lots of people this way and then escalated it to a claim himself. I'm assuming this was so that I couldn't communicate any more on paypal and reply to what he had said about me. He sent me 1 screenshot of him about to invite about 3000 people to my group and called this "proof" that he had invited 110,000. I contacted paypal and gave them the evidence that I had from our messages and the one screenshot he sent me.

    A few days later the paypal claim was decided in my favor and I was refunded my $150 but FBPPRO reported my personal facebook account (my only account, I've used for 3-4 years and keep in touch with hundreds of my real friends with) and it was then disabled and I can't get it undisabled.

    By the way, he claimed that since my group was growing that it was proof that he had invited 110,000 friends, but my group was already growing at that pace and had gone viral already with the members inviting their friends. I saw no impact in the numbers of people joining the group each day.

    This guy has tried to scam me, but even worse was that after he was unsuccessful he got revenge by having my FB account disabled. One of my best friends died a couple months ago and now I'll never be able to see his facebook page again. The hundreds of friends I've had over the last several years will have to be slowly re-added again if I get a new account and the hundreds of pictures I've been tagged in, I'll probably never see again.

    This guy will not only try to take your money, but if he fails will try his best to ruin your life. He's the reason why I don't trust people on this forum any more and haven't been on much since then.


    Quotes from FBPRO:

    "I will provide proof of the invites, there will be no refunds, lol that's not how it works"

    "As I say I can provide proof that the people have been invited, if your happy with that then we can continue, if your not, no hard feelings."

    "I will send all the screen prints to the email address you said."

    Sad story but of course there is always two sides of a story.

    Why would you start a group with your personal account? Never mess around with your personal account if your doing marketing.....

    He needs to answer this here for sure.

    However, OP, why did you upfront the entire fee? Usually you pay milestone payments, like 50% when he has 50,000 fans etc.

    Also, its sad that you lost your FB account but what is sadder is that you consider that as your life being ruined.

    I thought that my account would be deleted for using multiple accounts and I didn't really worry too much about the groups, but now I see why I should have. I am probably going to start a new personal account and a different account for marketing, but it will take me a very long time to get either of them to where I was before. As an American college student, facebook is very important to our social lives, if you're from another culture you might not understand that. My life isn't ruined, but it has caused me a lot of trouble.

    I paid the whole amount up front because I've done it before with smaller amounts of money for smaller amounts of invites and didn't have any problems.

    khirad: How do you know that? And if that's true, remember that this guy probably has a few facebook accounts and could have reported me from several of them.

    You got left neg iTrader almost 3 weeks ago by FBPRO stating that you conned him. Assuming it's the same incident, why post now?

    wow this is out of nowhere, I'll be happy to send copies of all our correspondence between me and this guy, he successfully got PayPal to think that i did not do the work. this guy expected 50k people to join his group from 110k invites i told him that inviting to the niche he had this would not happen, he agreed and paid the money.

    I often get an error message saying error 502 or something like that and it has stopped me from logging in for a day before now, i responded to his claim that he opened hours after he paid me, i escalated the claim and sent proof etc but they chose his side, i do believe there is a thread about it somewhere. I even spoke to a mod about it called gimmieforfree and he told me to write a shit list but i decided against it as i have better things to do with my time.

    i have copies of all the messages we sent to each other, this guy has no idea of how to market and had spam galore on his group, i should have known not to do business with him but i had a target that day and the $150 i would have made from him would have put me over it so i guess it was my own greed. this guy probably used his own account to promote stuff and as i say it was so spammie it was bound to get shut down eventually, lol this happened over a month ago i think so I'm surprised it has lasted this long.

    lol if you think i waste my time reporting people your wrong,

    if anyone wants to contact me personally or contact people i have sold this service to i will happily reply and ask them to contact you if they will to confirm i dont scam, lol i'm practically white hat.

    I'm not going to waist my time looking at this thread again, this is just someone who knows nothing about what they are doing and stupidly lost their account and their lashing out. like i say if anyone wants to talk about this i will be happy to do so, if any MODS are reading and I'm sure they are, please contact me so i can email you proof of all conversations and direct you to other threads regarding this on BHW.

    Many thanks

    P.S. I was out at lunch and i had a **************** strudel, it was fan F****** tastic.

    I must admit i may have given myself a bit of a bad rep for being so short with people who message me asking for all sorts of this, i assure everyone i will hold my tongue when it comes to commenting on posts and making my opinion known, i see the benefit in keeping my nose out.

    but at the same time i'm not just going to share my systems with anyone and when people come to me saying they have this great idea and i burst their bubble, they get all pissy with me and i get pissy back because i dont want some noob telling me what works and what doesn't.

    I have three people I could write a very good shit list post against but i just dont have the time, this is why I'm not going to bother much with this thread, again if anyone wants to know something just hit me up with a message and i will be happt to talk to you

    Just want to point out after reading his post fully, that the quotes at the bottom have been taken out of all context as anyone would try and do i guess I must admit you have done a bang up job you should work for the press

    SHIT LIST COMMON SENSE GUIDELINES!!!

    1. Does the member have a large or reasonable amount of posts?
      [*]Have you seen the members posts in other threads while viewing them?
      [*]Did you initiate contact with them based off of reputation that you have witnessed on the forum?
      [*]Does it look like they are going anywhere?
      [*]How long have they been part of the forum?
      [*]Is the job you are asking them to do under $50?
    If you answered YES to any of these questions. DO NOT FUCKING WASTE OUR TIME, YOUR REPUTATION AND THAT OF THE "Shit Lists" INTEGRITY. To the OP: FBPRO probably would have responded to you seeing how I see his name here ALL the time. Why are you watering down the necessity of this section with your complaint? This isn't open court for you to internet gangster yourself, keep it business SO KEEP IT PRIVATE UNLESS YOU ACTUALLY LOST $100+ and fuck that! 100+ is a RISK so even that doesn't warrant sympathy.


    I hate this section. MAKE SHIT LIST SECTION FOR THOSE WHO GOT SCAMMED FOR $100+ ONLY OR IN A JV



    PS. I see its $150 and not $100, or $50, but STILL. He is on the FORUM ALL THE TIME! AND!!!!!! HE ACCEPTS PAYPAL SO ANYONE WINS A DISPUTE IF THEY DECIDE TO DO ONE, WHICH YOU DID....
