    hey guys
    i just lost 1k (fraud) when trying to buy a laptop

    to make the long story short i clicked to buy a laptop at a brazilian website just like ebay and then someone discovered that I bought and my info, sent me an e-mail claiming be the seller....

    i'm earning like $500-$600 a month so its a great loss, but ill keep my head up and just get it as motivation try to discover new methods to reach 100 a day.

    I'm just posting here because I know there is a lot of nice guys here

    Always do your research on companies through Google, $1,000 is a lot of money just to be throwing out at random sites that you have no experience with.

    Sometimes adversity can drive you on to success, so put it down to experience and don't let anyone fool you again.
