    hired myshoeslace to do a clone of a site. He took the money and has ran ever since. Another lame scammer to add to the list. Hopefully an op will take a look at this and ban this user from bhw. The last pm sent to me was telling



    part of his bs:

    I have found but other than 3 the rest were asking huge, so i kicked them

    Now the 3 that are left are asking money in advance...

    Now, i am looking for some of my clients to pay me so that i can pay them...

    let me know what you think

    Please calm down. The person whom i have outsourced is a real lazy man! I have even paid him from my pocket so that the work can be finished much faster but he seems to be giving me out many different excuses...

    I even started a refund case on him, but paypal put my case down as its a matter of digital goods where you can't do any case over other on paypal...

    I am like barking on him every day but he seems to have stopped taking me as a concern...

    So better i will send you the files of what work i have done, and you can catch some coder who won't charge more than 100$ for this user management work...

    The codes are very well written so there won't be any problem in making the other coder to understand..

    I will look over to that scammer and will try to fullfill my losses...

    I have 11 itraders which surely aren't fake and nor even i am a scammer...This is the problem which i have kept in front of you very clearly...

    Let me know what you need me to do

    Thanks

    To begin with, please give us the link of the thread on which you hired him.

    It's funny to read that someone pays "over 1k" in advance to create a clone site. :) I hope you had done previous business with him on multiple occasions to have trusted him with "over 1k" advance payment.

    You could have paid him a small amount as an advance, and then paid him regularly on completion of the modules of your (clone)site. Sure, you could've tested the site at different stages and then paid installments as you had the original site as a sample.

    Not wishing to come across as rubbing salt over an already formed wound, but why did'nt you use CS to just be careful before paying such a grand amount to someone who hadn't proved his skills and integrity to you personally? Also not saying anything negative to the person involved, as there is not sufficient info on how and when he "cheated" you.

    After reading this post, I don't understand why anyone would pay 1k upfront for a cloned site. You should have paid in increments and if the person doing the service for you wanted all of the money upfront then you should have gone to someone else. I'm sure you could have found someone else a lot cheaper than 1k.

    I feel really sorry for you but that was an idiotic move on your part. As mentioned above, show more proof. Do you have screen shots of conversations? Copying and pasting text is not really proof, anything could have been changed; not saying that you would do that though.

    Because of making such a stupid move, now you want the MODs to straighten it out for you. Where's the justice in that?

    lol I didnt take the time to post screens b/c its not worth the time. I was just giving a warning to anyone else who thinks about doing business with him to think twice. I did pay in increments . He showed me a quick screenshot asking for the rest of the payment. I should have known it was a scam.. but I wanted to get it done quickly. - hoping he knew what he was doing. The fact that he has not responded to this thread should mean something.

    lesson? dont trust itrader on bhw.

    This is what actually i was waiting for.

    He says - " He paid me 1k$" PLease ask this person to post a screen shot of it. He has paid me through paypal so please give all of us the screen shot.

    The other thing - "I previously asked him to take the files of the work already done by me. But he said that you can take time and finish it.

    I was even scammed by someone whom i paid in advance for some user management work for mangoman's site...

    Even i am ready to send him his files. But why putting away what you really don't have paid...???

    Too poor!!

    I know this thread is a little old, but...

    If your shoelace scammed you, maybe you should try Velcro instead...

    Why would you pay 1k upfront, you should have said, I'll give you a percent of the payment when I have seen some progress.
