    Hallo, ( I wasnt able to post in the Shitlist section couldn't figure out why, if there would be an admin that would be so kind to move it there for me, thanks in advance)

    I am very sorry to do this, as I have never done this before but I have absolutely no choice.
    So I don't want to hold you people so im just going to explain what exactly happened.
    Since november me and my company were working together with jameshilton105 member of this forum, we hired him as a specialist in seo.
    We had a project that was very important for us, and he assured us he would be able to reach our goal by the end of february, and if not he would refund the total amount of our monthly payments.

    What happened was we invested about 10k€ for content (german) and payed a monthly 1.5k$ to user jameshilton105. We sent him all the content so he could work with it, the first 3-4 weeks he seemed to somehow work on our project and send us a report from time to time. So we paid him again, after this he assured us we would see significant results soon for about the next 5 weeks, after this he said he was close to the goal, could just need a few more days for the rankings to rise significantly. And told us he could only work on if we´d trust in his work and go on paying him.

    During this whole times he was betraying us telling us that he has some issues in family and that he has some problems with the doctor and stuff like that.
    Now 2 1/5 weeks after we paid him for the last time, he wasn't online once. Before this last time he was online 24/7 and in case he was not answering in Skype he would have answered emails. What happened he didn't answer to anything since those 2 1/2 weeks. And as much as i am concerned i haven't got any work proof from him since the 3rd week of his working time. even though we discussed that he has to send us reports every now an then.

    So what I claim is at least 3k$ of my money back from jameshilton105.

    What I think, this guy knew from the beginning that he will be going to scam us and just calculated with being banned from BHW , maybe the 4.5k$ meant more to him than his VIP BHW Membership. I have Skype, mail and paypal proof of everything. And I have the Name and Location of jameshilton105.

    I am willing to talk to some Admin, and I am willing to alit to anybody who is in closer relation to him, and could try to get me our money back, as the most important thing for me and my company is to get this project done and to reach our goal at least by the end of march ( already delayed).

    Thanks for your time.

    Regards

    Valentin

    I was dealing with him also and he was last online friday 24th Jan. I didnt send him near as much money as you but i did send him 500-600$. He seemed very nice and would ring me regularly. He did say that there was a family medical issue and it would take a few days to sort out. I have emailed him, skype and rang his number but it was a woman how answered and couldn't make much sense out of her.

    I hope he hasn't scammed us and i feel deep down he hasn't but i haven't invested as much money as you.
