    This guy was recently banned, but seemed to be a reputable member...good itrader rep etc... I paid him for FB profiles etc. A week has passed now and nothing. I have sent him everything from cordial emails to aggressive emails. He seemed very cool in PM and looked to be a decent guy to do business with. WTF? $75 is alot of money to me, and I would like him to make it right. I paid by paypal and am not sure what my recourse might be. At least I can vent here.

    Anyone have any experience with this guy?

    Sorry to hear that blackstone. Nobody deserves this kind of sh*t. I haven't dealt with him personaly but like we talked about in my thread in the AC subforum, there's been too many supposed "reputable" members scamming people here lately. Have you filed a chargeback/dispute with Paypal for the transaction?

    I hope you get your dough back somehow mate!

    He was banned prior to this incident.

    Also, admin can ban people for asking why others were banned. Just a heads up about that stoned.

    Free has contacted me to provide regrets, reasons and a full refund. I won't go into more details, but his explanations are acceptable to me. Needless to say, case closed and I wish him well.

    I agree with you stoned...and thankfully you were correct. That is why I originally titled the thread: "looks to have scammed me". I always will give people time to make it right. Shit happens..
