    Give your honest opinion about him every where you can, forums, blogs, link sigs, etc. Be prepared to back up your claims with proof. Screenshots of paypal, IM logs, etc...

    Good Luck.

    Did you by any chaance pay by credit card through your paypal account ?
    If so you could dispute this purchase with your credit card company and give them the facts surrounding this unscrupulous guy and that you have not received what you paid for.

    On what basis di you lose the PayPal dispute?

    This reason is the key to your failure to secure a refund!

    Paypal always close the case on non-tangible goods, well most of the time.

    with the exception of digital software and such things, but payments for services that cant be verified, like hiring someone on DP usually get closed pretty fast.

    Dont quite understand the direct question there... :confused:

    I hired that guy fast because he showed me his portfolio at blogthememachine.com and that is exactly what i am looking for. And to verify more if he owns that site i ask him to upload a text file with my name in it and he did it. So i decided to pay him coz i feel comfortable since he got some portfolios that he made and the service looks like legit.

    Theres another guy complaining at this scammer http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=722547&highlight=freefallcreative

    Neve mind!

    I did not see that YOU had closed the dispute, thereby screwing yourself.

    Sorry about that!

    dude...just chalk that shit. For your $120 you learned what not to do the next time you want to hire someone off of DP.

    If you waste your time trying to get revenge, then the terrorists have won.

    Yeah at this point it's over and done with. Just cookie stuff for a day or two and you'll get that money all back.

    Just make sure this is the last time you are scammed. be thankful he didn't take you for more. Dwelling on this won't anythin nothing but bring you down, pick yourself up and move on.
