    luckduck2 was asking for a Photoshop expert in Hire freelancer section. This is the thread
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/hire-freelancer/524055-photoshop-expert-wanted.html

    I delivered the design in psd format with some layers merged with my logo(water marked), since he was asking psd file to send the payment.Finally he was asked me send the original psd file, then I asked him to send the payment to receive original file. After that he vanished. I waited more than 24 hours and he is not available either in skype or BHW since last night.

    I have learnt a good lesson. when you are working with noobs be caution there won't be any harm to them even if they get banned.
    I decided not to work without at least half of upfront payment.

    I have the all chat details in skype.
    Mods please take necessary action please.

    Been there.. Take at least 60% upfront on such assignments. It takes time to put something together, people don't realize that. Hope you didn't waste to much time.

    sometimes i wish i could ->:pcguru:

    OP You have the right to raise the red flag, but escalating it straight into the shit list might in fact backfire as the dude may well do a runner as soon as he sees the shit list thread!

    After all what has he to lose his account on BHW, he will not be bothered about that as he is a newbie!

    He has what he came for! I hope OP that you get paid but I doubt it...

    That Luckduck2 (aka Luckduck)has dodgy written all over him.

    He opened some threads offering to sell ipads and ipad minis. we all know where that usually ends up.

    Anyway looking at his way of operating and the prices of his products he looked suspicously like a previous scammer. elmohill

    I knew I'd seen that skype name before. (being new to the forum, I checked out the shit list first to see who I shouldn't deal with)
    Same skype name, different BHW account. It would appear that Luckduck2 is BigSpan (http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/278887-bigspan.html) according to Skype names.

    Check this shitlist thread. From this thread. http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/shit-list/412726-beware-bigspan.html

    I remember that thread a few days ago. He looked like a dodgy twat from the off, and even replied in his own thread with his second account 'luckduck2'. Someone even called him out in that thread as being this elmohill guy, but the mods then decided to delete the whole thread. Well I assume it has been deleted as it's no longer in the list of threads I've posted in that I can see in my profile.

    Now, if the mods have seen that there's an issue with this guy, hence the reason for his thread deletion, shouldn't someone then be keeping an eye on his threads? I know that would be difficult to moderate, not having been a forum mod myself I don't know how it works; but even if it was possible to lock a thread but keep it alive at least OP would have had a chance of going through this guys posting history and seeing some warning signs from his previous posts before being stung by this dick. But as it stands that guys posting profile probably came out quite clean due to the deletion of his obviously dodgy 'ipad mini' thread.

    According to my view now there is enough evidence. I hope he'll get what he deserve.

    Yes LuckDuck still has 3 sales threads in dropshipping section. Seems he (elmohill) has found a huge loophole in BHW otherwise strict BST policy. I see it all the time people opening sales threads in the dropshipping section that would NEVER qualify for BST sales threads.

    LuckDuck says he's from Belgium same as Elmoshill was. LuckDuck selling exact same products Elmohill was. LuckDuck listing in the dropshipping section just like Elmohill did. No doubt it's the same person and LuckDuck2 is related to them.

    BHW needs a rule change in dropshipping sub-forum IMO. Too many of these scams happening there from new accounts. The dropshipping section currently is nothing more than a BST section with no rules. Noobs open sales threads all the time and idiots purchase from them and cry here when they get ripped. Expect another shitlist soon when people figure out LuckDuck isn't shipping them shit.

    In my opinion, if you are thick enough to buy off people like this, new account, latest tech, 75% off retail price, then you really are a little simple. Good learning curve.

    Lol in the chatlog, this scammer named 'Elisa Hall' questioned the trustability of OP when he himself was a scammer. A scammer crying for worried about getting scam, how pathetic.

    Honestly, I called this. I applied for the job as well. No self respecting, qualified designer will work without getting 50% upfront beforehand. That's just business, especially dealing with first time transactions and newer members. Sorry to hear about this OP.

    luckduck2 last login was on (01-24-2013,) 07:39 PM. The same day he scammed me. Till now he hasn't appeared in either BHW or skype. He is proving himself as a 3rd class man.
