    Hello guys,

    I didn?t want to waste more time with this idiot but for how he?s behaving so I finally decided to do everything possible in order to get back my money and report his rip-off.

    ToG his signature on posts/emails.
    TheOnlyGame in March 2014 on BHW.

    Whathappened:


    In March 2014 I bought 5 microniche websites for $900.


    His promise: the same you can check on http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/web-design/616006-adsense-niche-site-your-total-solutions-passive-income.html


    Passive income from the websites after three months of his ?work? on SEO etc. etc.
    After three months I didn?t expect anything special but I saw that these websites were not ranking or even generating a visualization.
    On the 9th of June I asked him what was going on and he answered:


    ?hey marco
    i am in the same boat honestly
    i am trying to figure out what the heck is going on
    i have 200+ sites that suddenly dropped
    can u setup an amazon aff id ?
    i will setup a couple sites for you on the house?


    Something was not working and he made the first offer about the ?amazon aff id?. In the meantime that these websites were not generating anything we tried for a few days to set up an amazon affiliate id. But in the end I was not interested. It wasn?t what I paid for and other colleagues told me they could have done it for me for free.


    On the 23rd of June I asked him if he would agree to a refund.


    Here his answer on the same day:


    ?marco
    you know i am in a loss here right ?
    i spend a ton of money on everything
    and on SEO campaigns
    and the all over the adsense sites are not doing well
    and i offered sites to you for free i can make ?


    My answer was: I understand your situation, take your time.


    In July, on Skype, I proposed to set up an auto-payment on paypal for $50 per month until we arrive at the entire amount.
    Beginning of August, on Skype, I was asking him:
    ?are you going to refund $800?? *** I did a mistake about the amount. It was $900 and not $800. Anyway..
    He answered: i thought you said i can pay you $50 each
    Me: $100 is better, each month
    Him: ?I will try my best. Idont know why a damm SUPER EASY keywords didnt rank but thats ok i will ask the new buyers to make sure to do some SEO for them as they are 100% easy targets?




    And he proposed again the amazon affiliate work.


    On the 21th of August he sent me the first $100 by paypal.


    Beginning of October I asked him at least another payment for October.
    In the meanwhile, I gave him the list of websites (because he lost it) and he tried to re-sell them. He said he was going to pay the same day, never happened.


    At the beginning of November he started his delirium. He was blathering we agreed on a 50% refund. He was blathering that I agreed to a $50 refund per website. I pointed out that I could never have accepted a 50% refund for something that was completely not working and that $50 for 5 websites is $250 which is even less than the 50% of $900 (amount paid). I sent him a screenshot where we agreed about $50 or $100 PER MONTH and not per website.


    Then my indian colleague wrote him that he was filling a document for indian cyber cops. The scammer answered that we wanted to scam him. Hilarious. In addition to it he started to threaten my colleague. And said that he was going to report my colleague to cybercops asking for damages too. Double-Hilarious.


    I spare you the other stupid emails he sent me.


    One thing is sure: as I wrote at the beginning I didn?t want to waste more time with this idiot. But after I was so polite and accommodating (take your time, don?t worry, etc.) and after he said that I wanted to scam him, I?m motivated to follow up on this story and do anything I can.


    I'm going to add even more informations to this document and send it to indian authorities through my indian colleague. I have screenshots of all the emails/skype/my adsense account and other stuff.


    Sorry to take your time.


    Have a nice day
    Marco Coscarella

    GoGetRanked has not signed in but this has gone far enough. I have perma-banned him along with instructions on how to contact me should he want to address this issue.
