    I asked some people if they could buy me a Scrapebox license using their paypal account and that i would pay them via Payza.
    At 08-11-2012 12:30 PM ShiningEyes replied and said that he could buy me a license and that i would have to pay him in advance. I paid him and 48 hours later i got the details.

    Payment Proof:

    I contacted Scrapebox Support to get the new license registered in my name. They replied and told me that the license was not recently bought and was bought 1 year ago.

    Then i contacted him and asked him. He said that he gave me an old license and bought himself a new license with the money i gave him when he said that he would BUY ME the license not buy himself. Now because of this the license has been deactivated by scrapebox support.

    Now you might say that the license is not transferable. This is what the FAQ says:

    I also confirmed through scrapebox staff that if the license is not second hand and bought a few days ago then it could be transferred to the to the original buyers name and email address.


    Why the License got Terminated:

    I contacted support to get it transferred to my name after reading the FAQ. They asked me when the license was bought. I told them 1 or 2 days ago. Then the support said that the license was bought 1 year ago and that i should get a refund ASAP.
    They said that the license is not transferrable and deactivated the license. Then i asked them if this was a recently bought license could it be transferred to my name. They said "Yes it is possible".

    These are the PMs between ShiningEyes and me from his thread:


    frazgta:
    Hey
    Were you able to find someone to buy Scrapebox for you after you paid through Alertpay?
    I'm looking for the same thing.


    My reply:
    Do you need one? I can buy you. You will have to pay in advance through AP.


    NOTE: He clearly says that he will BUY me a new license NOT give me an old and used license.





    frazgta:
    Yes i really really need one lol [​IMG]
    Ofcourse i'll pay in advance.


    Is there any way that you can register using my email so that i can receive future update notifications etc.


    My reply:
    I think its only registered to the paypal email from which it is purchased.


    frazgta:
    Oh well. No prob.
    So where do i send the funds and how much.
    Regards


    My reply:
    http://www.scrapebox.com/
    Its $97
    Send: *****his email***


    NOTE: AT first i didn't give much notice to this PM but now i can see that he just went out for the $97 one. Everyone knows that there is a discount for BHW memebers. He was clearly trying to rip me off here.





    frazgta:
    Theres a discount for bhw members here:
    http://www.scrapebox.com/bhw
    Its 57$
    So i send 60$ to ********
    Right?




    My reply:
    ahan.. right!!
    Send em!
    Where are you from?

    Well, its running on my machine, try using this license, i hope when it activates on your machine mine will automatically be deactivated.

    And yet, it is a valid shitlist from this side. Shiningeyes can now do the right thing here and either get this worked out through SB support, or refund the OP his money.

    I think there is no difference between the new and old license?

    Both working and both if known to SB support, have been sold or transferred are terminated.

    He should have asked me first if he wanted it to his name, Actually he did and i told him that "its neither transferable nor resalable"
    frazgta might be a noob but not a child to not understand the simple thing...

    Well, i can feel, its really my fault to help him in the first instance.

    Firstly i had not that in mind to give him the one i had but when paid $60 and i gave him the one i bought for the same price.

    hi, Here i got the reward for helping a noob.

    Well here is the summary.

    About an year ago a member "SEOLover" did me a favor and bought me scrapebox with his account cz i did not have paypal account. I paid him through another medium.
    And one year after that, i thought i got an oppertunity to do the favor to someone else like someone did for me. It was "frazgta" who wanted SB. He was in same situation like i was an year ago.
    He asked, I agreed, He paid and i gave him the license(the one which was given to me by SEOlover and thought i will buy a new one. I also told him that it is not allowed to sell or transfer SB license.
    The license got activated.
    He went straight to the SB support asking them to transfer the license to his name.
    They told him the license can't be transfered or sold, if he bought from someone ask for refund, AND support immediately terminated the license.

    Now after all that he did, asking me to refund,

    I thought was a wise person and would not do something idiotic knowing that it is not allowed to sell or transfer the license of SB but i was proved wrong.

    Here is the story:
    A week ago a member "http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/158375-frazgta.html" sent me a PM saying
    frazgta:
    Hey
    Were you able to find someone to buy Scrapebox for you after you paid through Alertpay?
    I'm looking for the same thing.


    My reply:
    Do you need one? I can buy you. You will have to pay in advance through AP.


    frazgta:

    Well, its running on my machine, try using this license, i hope when it activates on your machine mine will automatically be deactivated.


    frazgta:
    Yea one free license transfer per month is allowed. I'll check and report back.

    Activated!
    They said it'll take a few hours. Can you please tell me when you get the activation email.

    Thanks


    Me:
    You can check that tomorrow,
    It will be activated, i hope.




    Problem starts here:
    frazgta:
    Hey,
    You online? I wanted to ask a couple of things.


    Me:
    yes please?


    frazgta:
    I couldn't activate the license so i contacted Scrapebox support.
    I told them all the purchase details and this is their reply:

    Hi Fraz

    No this license was purchased last year, ScrapeBox licenses are not transferable or resellable. If you paid for it I suggest you get a refund.

    Regards,
    ScrapeBox & ScrapeJet Support.
    http://www.scrapebox.com/
    http://www.scrapejet.com/


    I think you might have given me your old license instead of the new license i requested yo to buy.
    Can you provide me with the newly purchases license that i asked for?


    Me:
    Come on man who told you the lisence is resellable and transferable?
    Is it working now? try reactivating again?
    Its the same account when i needed and one member bought me this, now that you also wanted it, i sent you this lisence and kept the one i just bought.


    frazgta:
    The support people said that.
    I actually wanted the new license so that i can get it registered in my name. If you could give me the new one i could activate it and get it registered in my name. Hope you understand.


    Me:
    Did you purchase the license from them? NO!
    I purchased MY license from them and gave you the one i HAD.
    I thought that when your SB will activate, mine will deactivate automatically and i will use the new license to activate.
    Now you independently went to their support, they have deactivated mine too.

    I don't know if they have suspended the account i gave you or what.


    frazgta:
    Well you didn't tell me that. I went to them to get it registered in my name and told them that a friend bought it for me. I have tried reactivating again but it isn't working.


    Me:
    I have given you a valid license for what you paid me.
    You can ask them to transfer it to your name. I won't use it in the future ever because i have my own new one.


    frazgta:
    Well i paid for a new one. You can check your first PM in which you said that you can BUY ME a new one.


    Me:
    You bought it from me not them, its not working with me too, You should have asked me before going to them.
    Its like going to police after a theft, Man its not allowed to sell or transfer license of SB. and i did you a faver and thats what happened.
    Request them to re-activate the license and ask them if they want any detail. Tell them that its your license, if they believe you.


    frazgta:
    I contacted them because it wasn't getting activated. How was i to know that you gave me the old license and not the new one that i asked for.
    Wait i'm contacting them.


    Me:
    You bought it from me not them, its not working with me too, You should have asked me before going to them.
    Its like going to police after a theft, Man its not allowed to sell or transfer license of SB. and i did you a faver and thats what happened.
    Request them to re-activate the license and ask them if they want any detail. Tell them that its your license, if they believe you.


    frazgta:
    Could it be that they still haven't activated it for my PC?


    Me:
    That is again your fault brother, you should have told me that you were gonna go to their support.
    Ok i agree, i might have said that. (I DID NOT USE WORD "NEW") Now, IF mine is suspended, its your act which caused it, and do you think i will give you the other one worth 57$ too?
    Kindly ask them to reactivate the license that i gave you. That was as good as a new one.


    frazgta:
    Well if the support doesn't listen we can contact Sweetfunny or Loopline here at BHW.


    Me:
    yeah, that seems good :)
    The old license is as good as the new one, there is no prob with it.
    Actually i wanted to keep my own because I bought it.


    frazgta:
    The license was terminated (confirmed from Scrapebox Support).

    You didn't deliver what i paid for. I paid for a new license so that i can get it transferred to my name. The license can be transferred to my name if it was bought recently and not 2nd hand bought (confirmed from Scrapebox support and Scrapebox FAQ).

    I want a refund otherwise I'm posting in shitlist.

    well, i did give him the license and there is no difference between new and old license. He went to support that was the wrong thing he did, That caused my account terminated.

    Yes you did tell me that. Part of that is wrong.
    It is Transferrable.
    It is not resalable.

    It is transferable if someone buys it for you and isn't 2nd hand used.
    Secondly about the resellable part. You told me that the license isn't resellable as you just said then why did you intentionally and without telling give sold me your 1 year old license. Isn't that a "Resale" which isn't allowed as you said.

    The whole problem arose because i was given an old license when i paid $60 for a new one.

    You told him you could buy him a license, not sell him one.
    You told him it couldn't be transferred when that is allowed on new licenses.
    *EDIT* He paid the discount price.

    Don't fuck around about this, I'm more than willing to ban you for being shifty. Make it right, or lose your account. This blaming a noob bullshit isn't going to work, you're responsible and it's time to own it.

    How can you say that there is no difference between a new and old license. An old license is not transferable because that would mean that its a resold one. HINT: TOS.

    If i had a new license like he had said that he would "buy" then none of this would have happened.

    All the OP required was to use someone's PP to buy an SB license. So blaming him for your mistake of reselling yours to him is absolute non sense. At least you should've told him the license is old and not transferable anymore so that he wouldn't have contacted support. It's your responsibility to repay the OP.

    well, i did not know the new rule of transferability, that new licenses are transferable, Thats my fault right!
    Why is sweetfunny message sending is disabled. He could be the best man to solve this?
    Anyone knows how to contact him?

    Thats right, cz i had same in mind untill i got $60 which was the price of what i bought in the past.

    I did not know that, if OP knew that he should have informed me that he was going to do that.

    He paid the discount price, not the full price.

    Old license is also transferable ,

    The reason it is terminated that you told support all the story thats against TOS

    If you simply say them to transfer it then it can be .

    Anyhow now its terminated , now only Sweetfunny can sort it out

    Or refund is the best way

    If you knew that why did you ask for $97?

    How was i to know that you would sell me a 2nd hand license instead of actually BUYING me as you said. Again if you had just given what you said there would be NO problem right now.
