    Havent heard from him in almost 7 days now. He scammed me out of 200 dollars which was the upfront payment. He promised to make me a livewallpaper app and said he would have it ready in 3 days ...hasn't responded to any of my skypes even called his number that he posted on skype and no response. His skype name is "BL4CK". Avoid him! Moderators please any help would be appreciated. Here are some bits and pieces of the skype chat.



    [10/17/2012 9:40:27 AM] BL4CK: yea I think I can do it, I mean the coding part is not a problem, but the design because as I see that animation is made with after effects and cinema 4d
    [10/17/2012 9:41:10 AM] me: so how expensive would something like that be
    [10/17/2012 9:43:00 AM] BL4CK: I've got to ask my partners, it's the design that will cost you more
    [10/17/2012 9:43:07 AM] BL4CK: shoot me an offer
    [10/17/2012 9:43:22 AM] me: want a quote from you
    [10/17/2012 9:43:39 AM] BL4CK: okk, I will give you one after 2-3 hours, ok?
    [10/17/2012 9:52:00 AM] me: ok
    [10/17/2012 11:37:29 AM] BL4CK: mate, I had a talk with my partners
    [10/17/2012 11:38:15 AM] BL4CK: we can make the project for 300$, including designing using cinema 4d and AE, converting and then coding
    [10/17/2012 11:38:39 AM] me: 250?
    [10/17/2012 11:39:43 AM] BL4CK: nahh I can't negotiate the price I'm sorry, if you put a look through it you will see the amount of work it requires
    [10/17/2012 11:41:03 AM] me: how much upfront
    [10/17/2012 11:41:12 AM] BL4CK: 200
    [10/17/2012 11:44:19 AM] me: when is delivery
    [10/17/2012 11:44:46 AM] BL4CK: 5 days max, we've been a little busy these days
    [10/17/2012 11:45:23 AM] me: and itll be just like this http://www.youtube.com/$#$%] [10/17... And haven't heard from him since the 19th.

    I feel for you bro.. I never had any problems dealing with BL4CK.. He was a honest guy in my book... But time is a bitch.. A person changes with that... I never paid him before I got my work done...

    Raise a dispute ASAP

    It's a tough game out there and you learn from each mistake, What type of payment processor did you use? and are you able to make a dispute to get your money back? you can use the Skype convo as evidence.

    ebric before giving iTrader and opening a shitlist thread you must know to whom you are doing. You are dealing with someone else and posting against some one else. Mods please check.....

    your apologies doesn't mean to me because i will be losing business now. You know how mush work I have done to make this 22 iTrader. Most of the guys providing similar services as of me are on 8- iTrader and mine was 22..........and you can check the thread where I replied....

    @phpdotnetguy, I can't see the mods not removing the iTrader. It'd suck hard core if you got stuck with it after all the great reviews you got.

    How can you possibly shitlist the wrong guy. You should go back and edit all the threads you called him a scammer too, I know I saw at least two in the Hire a Freelancer.


    Now, if Cyberflax is the correct guy, then you're probably not going to get your money back. He's been shitlisted before for $300 ( should have searched before you went into a deal with him! ), and he hasn't logged on in 4 days ( since the 20th ).

    His correct profile URL ( ebric you provided a PM link ) is: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/110788-cyberflax.html

    In that threads case it looks like the OP just didn't pursue it after posting it.

    Just make sure after a mod PM's cyber that after the allotted time an action is taken against him.
