    Or is it all scammers? This is getting sad. I am chasing down hundreds of dollars spent on product in here, 1 out of 5 actually follows through.

    A lot of people deal in the grey area on here. I know it can be frustrating, but you got to really pick and chose who you deal with.

    So you got scammed buying FB services? FB is getting a lot tougher to market on, lots of service providers are getting shut down, and it equates to unreliable service.

    Sorry to hear that you got ripped. It tends to happen far too often. Check into methods, not services...test them out for your unique sites/services/products and go from there.

    Not saying all outsourcing is bad but I don't agree with running a business where I have to count on other people to come through for me to maintain my businesses.

    I do everything in house...just a personal choice but to each their own.

    Who are the ones scamming you, and what are they scamming for? you need to let us all know so we dont deal with them to. I feel bad that you were scammed, but it doesnt help to let others go through the same thing.

    That's a broad statement, I feel bad for your loses as no one should be ripped off but there have been sellers on here for years that do a great job. Great customer service, yet I never see a thread about how well they are doing. If you have a problem with a seller, please release the information to the mods as they are helpful and could get it resolved. Making an over-generalization judgment based on a few sellers is not the telling factor when you have over 20+ sellers everyday doing the right thing.

    Again, hope you get your money back but you can't run in here and just make statements without proof. Best wishes to you!

    I will post proof. I will make itrader. The problem is with the system here.

    I can show proof. Post negative feedback, they in turn can post negative feedback saying I am a scammer. People read that and dont do business with me while not even looking into the story further.

    Also it is to easy to rejoin here and start scamming under another name

    If you have been ripped by another member that is offering services here, you should open a shit list thread and a mod will generally look at both sides and see what can be done to make things fair.

    You traded in unexplored water and faced consequences of it. Should have checked before doing business. It's not this forum, you will find these kind of people every where online or offline doesn't matter.

    Best option:- Visit Shit List.

    Well maybe you just aren't doing a good enough job checking out who your going to work with.

    There's over 100,000 accounts on bhw. The admins, mods, and active members try to watch out for scammers but with that many members there's always going to be some that get by for awhile.

    Also, if you've been scammed that many times then you should be extra cautious from now on. Really check out the other members threads and replies, look for any problems brought up by other members. If you don't do a good due dilligence yourself, then it makes it a lot easier for the scammers to get over on you.

    Even if you do check people out, that doesn't mean you'll never get scammed, but it will happen a lot less than 4 out of 5.


    This was a kind of pointless thread though. You should have made a post in the shitlist against whoever it was that scammed you.

    Instead of making some broad statement that there's no one doing legit business, maybe you should help identify the ones that aren't. If you got scammed then you should get all your email logs, pm logs, account screenshots, and anything else you think would help support your claims. Then post in the shitlist regarding the specific member and incident. When the mods review it, and you provide them the supporting proof then they can help stop at least that particular scam from continuing.




    Edit-
    I just looked at that link. What made you decide to give this guy $50 bucks? There's no history to base an opinion on.

    Nothing wrong with giving someone a chance sometimes if you want, but you need to understand that it's a much bigger risk. Would you give a random stranger you just met in a bar $50 and send them to a store to buy you something? If you did would it surprise you if they never came back?

    I don't know what the deal was. I don't know if he didn't do it, or if you just expected more to come from it. Either way though was a big risk to hire someone with no history for you to check out.

    Thank you, exactly what i was saying.... just alot more detailed lol. I dont do business with people i dont know often, but when i do, very good reputation is a must. There are scammers everywhere, but here at bhw, to be trusted, usually the mods have to approve. and they post approvals in threads, so 20 minutes of research could have saved you $50. But take it as a life lesson, because if it happens more than once, the only descriptive words would be "pure stupidity"

    Try and find someone with a sales thread or has a minimum of +1 itrader.
    However, feel free to deal with some of the more trustworthy noobs.

    There are a crap load of good service providers here. BigBuddy, Dichtom, etc. Just look for some who have a history. Personally, I look for long threads as well off the service offerings since time usually fleshes out who is legit and who is a scammer. Just my 2 cents.
