    Hi there. I'm coming up with explanations on what happened with Automagram - we got shutdown, I hope you guess I didn't want to stop the service.
    It's not easy to control the badbuzz, and to put it in a nutshell, no, I won't be able to refund every single person (not that I don't want).

    I'm trying to finish to write down the announcement today and spread it around.
    If a moderator and/or admin wanna PM me cause they think I'm in a scamming position because I didn't wrote down any TOS protecting myself, let me know.
    When I first came here, I just wanted to share the tool I created for myself and share it; now it's getting me a lot of trouble. Completely not worth it, but I'll remember the good aspect of the experience.

    I loved your bot and I'm not blackmailing you or just stick onto the money I've spent on the tool.
    The accounts I added premium to, was because I liked the service and wanted to help you.

    I know how the terms from Instagram and other big players can change from a day to another and I know it's hard for a developer.
    More I thought as sort of an investment and its just sad that we weren't informed on all this.
    Just looked weird when I need to read that the domain got sold and the service is down without any information.

    You got my point?

    Yeah sure, I got your point and I totally understand all of the angry customers. Trust me when I say I feel sad for the decisions I had to make these days.
    I'm probably not the best community manager and probably lack a great sense of communication - even though I started to write my blog entry about what's going on right away, but yeah, it takes time. I'll finishing the blog entry at the moment even tho' am supposed to work for my day job. I'll post an update here and on Twitter with the link in the coming minutes I think.
    Anyway, I don't regret anything, learned a lot of things by taking Automagram up from the ground alone and that will certainly help me for the future. Lessons learned.

    You can read his blog post here: http://www.kyotoweb.net/automagram-the-rise-and-fall/
    I'm not in the need of my money back, as its clearly a black hat service and I won't get you into more trouble on here. It was clearly a good project and as I read you learned a lot from it. Hope not everyone is refunding him on PayPal.

    all the Best !

    Wow, you learned a life-lesson, that's amazing I'm so happy for you.
    BUT WHERE IS MY MONEY? I didn't pay you to learn a lesson, I payed for a service I never got.
    You didn't answer my PayPal dispute (it has been many days), I escalated it to a claim today.
    I urge others to do the same.
