    @catardat has been banned.

    He has been on since this was opened and did not respond.

    8 year old account - 800 messages, it's a shame.

    Sorry, @vltn3391.

    This person has a group, yesterday he was PM me too, but I want to use escrow, and he offered escrow of this forum.
    and very strange, escrow asked me to at least minimal 5 account transactions direct.

    cypionate first offered me catardat as escrow.

    then I refused, and then he offered Scritty as escrow, but Scritty ask me transactions to than more one account.

    Goddamn!
    So, I also got scammed.
    We were having a deal of an Adsense account.
    While talking, there were several red alerts I came across that made me think he is a scammer but I kept believing he isn't because he was such an old member with so many positive ratings and thanks recieved
    Seriously, I'd now be having so many trust issues while dealing.

    Update:

    I've found irrefutable proof that Scritty and Cypionate's accounts changed hands in the last few weeks and are now being owned by the same person. Cypionate asked his buyers to use escrow services provided by Scritty and both accounts were keeping up a pretense of being unconnected.

    Both accounts have been immediately banned. This has also brought to light other connected accounts which are being investigated now.

    Preventing and stopping fraudulent activity like this is our utmost priority to keep our members safe. Help us do this by protecting yourself wherever possible - this thread is essential reading for members trading on bhw: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/avoiding-scams-staying-safe-on-black-hat-world.884947/ If you suspect someone of acting in a fraudulent manner, report this immediately. If it's a seller/buyer dispute then the shitlist is the appropriate place to submit it so we can mediate to get it sorted out.

    Two golden rules to keep in mind:

    NO MEMBER IS AUTHORISED TO ARBITRATE TRADES OR PROVIDE ESCROW SERVICES ON BEHALF OF BHW
    This is something we can look at providing in future if it appears necessary. Until then, use regulated escrow providers only - either a bank service, escrow.com or paypal arbitration (never use friends and family payments for services as you have zero protection).

    KEEP ALL DISCUSSIONS VIA PM.
    Reputable sellers will be happy to discuss services via PM. If they ask you to contact them on skype immediately, they've probably got something to hide. Once you go off the forum, it's almost impossible for us to help you. If you *must* do it, then make sure they confirm their skype address via PM first. Some scammers won't even give you their skype addresses but ask for yours to add you. Make sure you get them to confirm their skype address via PM first BEFORE starting any discussion.

    @Apricot just a thought but it maybe worth posting a list of all connected accounts when you have finished your investigations, just so the community is aware and anyone else that was conned by these people can be clear on whats been done?

    @Scritty
    I've got scammed (probably) in the same way. Opened a thread to buy Amazon Merch account and trusted a Premium Member with such history and post counter.
    He has pushed me to pay him via bitcoin because his paypal was limited. Sadly, I've agreed ;/
    After payment he not PMed me for 24h, just silenced.
    Maybe I've been scammed, maybe not. Apricot has blocked his account and can't PM him. Haven't asked about email or skype before and it's my mistake.

    Lost $70

    I want to warn you guys, always ask for skype, email and paypal - don't go with BTC because it stinks. Even it's old user, elite member or whatever.
    Always buy via approved BST only and verified PayPal (it can allow you to open refund).

    I'm going through lots of information at this moment. If it's connected, the account will be banned.

    There's a limited amount of information we can provide due to the data protection act. However, I'll make sure everyone has enough information from this to be able to protect themselves. Ultimately, the one thing everyone should take away from this is that you do not send money to anyone on the internet without using a service that offers arbitration. This is a fundamental part of doing your due diligence.


    Yes, make sure you get lots of contact details before dealing with anyone. It's important to remember that people can register as many skype and email addresses as they like. Get all the information you can but keep discussions on PM and don't send payments that you cannot claim back if you need to.

    Unfortunately, this has turned into a bit of a rabbit hole. I've banned two more senior accounts involved in the fake escrow service - Entrepreneur and justone.

    Both accounts have, again, changed hands in the last month. There are more members involved, I'm still going through this but it takes time to gather sufficient evidence.

    In the meantime - and once again - DO NOT USE AN ESCROW SERVICE OFFERED BY A MEMBER VIA PM!

    I'll update with a more comprehensive list tomorrow.

    Is it possible these accounts were compromised?
