This SL is against @icstock, a member who posted in the HaF section once for review writers, and again for virtual assistants. I did some work for him as a "review writer". I even vouched for him, because I was getting paid. But, here's what he never told me or anyone else he worked with: the scam he is running is completely against Paypal's terms of service, and it will get you banned. He's basically using you to launder money for him. He sends a certain amount to your PP account, you buy an AZon GC with it and then you keep what's left over. Sounds nice, right? Well it's not. The way he sends money is suspicious: you'll get it in $20 increments. So let's just say he sends you $80 to buy a $70 gift card. You'll see 4 $20 transactions sending money to your account, and they will come from 1 to 3 different accounts. (See screenshot #1 as proof.) I did about maybe 20 transactions before PP caught on and limited my account. So I panicked. I went back to OP and told him what happened. I remember him telling me that PP would come knocking soon, and I needed to set up a Fiverr gig to make it look like I was providing a service, when really I wasn't. I didn't set up a Fiverr gig because I wasn't interested and I felt like that was silly. (see screenshot #2) Well, PP did come knocking. I told them I was providing a service. OP gave me fake documents to send to PP but they saw right through that, limited my account and booted me. In hindsight I knew they'd kick me off sooner or later - but not because of that. We all know how fickle PP can be. And aside from the payments I was receiving from OP I was selling digital goods (ebooks, sales pages, etc) that kept regular money coming into my account and leaving. Since none of those goods have confirmation numbers (why the hell would they?) I knew some jackass would do something stupid like request a refund and get my account frozen. I was just waiting for it to happen. Fortunately I took most of that out before I got limited, but I left about $100 in the account just in case. Now, someone requested a refund from a transaction immediately after I bought the gift cards. That's what limited my account. (see screenshot #3) I freaked out, contacted OP, then decided to refund the person. OP said he'd reimburse me. He also promised that no one would lose money working for him. (see screenshot #4) What followed was a month long battle with PP to get my account back. I lost. Of course I was pissed. So I posted a warning in the original thread apologizing for vouching for OP and offering help for people who had fallen victim to him. I kind of brushed it off like it wasn't a big deal and even added a little humor to it, being sarcastic and saying that I still wanted to work with the OP (when I honestly did not). But it is a big deal. I'm not his only victim, and the fact that he's trying to recruit more makes me want to punch baby bunnies in the face. Funnily enough, OP admits that there's a risk involved with his business on several occasions. (see screenshot #5 for on such occasion.) He knows he's doing something illegal. He just won't admit it out loud. Finally, I contacted OP after the second refund was sent, which put a $75 overdraft on my account. (see screenshot #6). I told him I wanted my money back. He told me to set up a Go fund me and he'd have people send the money through there. (Wtf? but see screenshot #7 regardless.) I just decided to play his game. Like at this point I knew I wasn't going to see dick. But I set it up anyway and waited a week. I never saw a penny. I wasn't going to say anything, honestly, but then he opened a second thread and I just went crazy. Like how dare you try to scam even more people than you already have! And then he brushes is off in the thread like it's no big deal. [insert some very inappropriate and unprofessional words here] Nevertheless, I contacted OP, giving him 72 hours to reimburse me my money or a SL was forthcoming. He agreed to give me a partial refund of $150 - which I am fine with. But he said he'd do it in two different payments - $80 now and $75 in 45 to 180 days. He also said I could open a SL against him (see screenshot #6 again). I said in 45 days exactly I'd contact him again, but I'm done giving this guy so many chances. I want my $150 up front. All of it. Bc OP is banking on the fact that I will forget in 6 weeks to 6 months, but I'm not going to forget this. Also, I'm sure other people can vouch for a similar experience with OP. If you need screenshots of anything else, regarding this, please let me know. I will post them ASAP. I've got plenty.
