    Hey guys,
    Sorry mods if the title breaks any rules, please change it if so. Same with the section.

    Ok guys, I wrote a short 3-page e-book and put it up for 5$ on DP. I was planning on releasing it on here once sales ease up there, but they were still going strong. That is, at least until this one ass-clown decided to show up.

    The guy asked me before he bought if there was a refund availible and I specifically said NO. He then proceeded to buy, and I sent out the e-mail with the e-book. Then too he claimed that he recieved no such e-mail but shut up when I offered a screenie of my sent messages.

    Within a little while he starts spamming my thread with

    and

    Etc. The usual bullshit.

    He then PMs me telling me he has filed a dispute on paypal, which he has and that he will not stop to get his money back.

    Now I, assuming that shutting him up is better than saving face at this point, offered him a refund if he deleted the posts. This is what that convo looked like:

    So I responded and told him that I already know I can't trust him and so he will have to go first to get the refund he doesn't even deserve or have rights to to be honest, but I have an unverified paypal account and I don't really want to deal with a dispute. I gave him 30 minutes to delete them before I reported him, but in the mean time, I noticed he had posted THIS a little while back:

    Since then I have reported him to DP, I had reported him earlier but to no avail, this is obviously a combination of harassment and an obvious scam, but what do I do?! PLEASE HELP!

    This is one of the first times I've seen a double-digit income from a single method, and this guy is being not only a major buzzkill but a right pain in the donkey.

    I am perplexed and some what surprised that posting an OP on here will help you at all

    You created the situation in another place at another time

    Be a man and sort it out at source ie where ever the forum is

    I feel that in my opinion you are acting in-appropriately by quoting an independent forum that is to most members in here just a joke center

    It seems that you may have been captured in that joke too :eek:

    No, I know, but I'm wondering if there is someone specifically at DP I should contact to get the idiots posts taken away, cause he's screwing up sales, I've had so many people back out since he started posting...

    Well, because nothing ever seems to work out for me, I will admit though that this is the first time since joining I've been able to stick to something...

    I don't mind refunding him in the LEAST, but I doubt he'll delete the posts afterwords, and then I don't have anything to use against him...

    Bigger question I guess is this, will paypal be fair if he takes it to the next step? Will they be biased against me due to my being unverified?

    So far I believe paypal dont protect for digital stuff, if you have delivered the stuff they will be with you, they dont look for the quality of digital stuff delivered.

    No, it DOES work, I've used it and none of my other buyers have said a damn thing other than positive stuff.

    this has ahppened to me, you see a lot of suckas on DP. You should have struck a deal with him, like offered him a refund, a free method to earn money online and also $2 for deleting the post. They are broke Highschool kids who care for such an amount. I would spend that money on BEER

    Like I said, it's not the 5 bucks I'm worried about, but the sudden total cut-off in sales.

    Screw him, put all the PM's he's sent you on DP and show the world what a wanker this guy is. Get some testimonials from some of your happy customers. It worked for them, he's obviously doing it wrong. Point out his first contact was to ask if there was a refund available - 'he was obviously fishing for a freebie frmm the start' kinda thing. Fuck him, I hate people like that...

    Does it make sense to start a whole new thread?

    Go back to your customers and ask them to post lots of positive testimonials. Even at DP, people can see through one guy's biased comments.
