    We ordered Facebook Fans & Twitter followers to supplement a new clients social media campaign until our legitimate in-house efforts took root. Well, Frank Tobin aka "MySocialMagic.com" scammed us 100%.


    Problems experienced with mySocialMagic:


    1. He got our Twitter account suspended by not following the TOS / tried to add way too many fans way too quickly.
    2. We ordered 10k USA targeted facebook fans, they only delivered 1.5k and they were all from the same city in Pakistan.
    3. Unwilling to offer refund.
    4. Completely unresponsive.
    5. Unethical. He messaged our clients on Facebook telling them where we ordered his services, trying to steal our clients out from under us.
    6. Threatened on skype to use ou0r credit card information to make online purchases.


    See the attachments for proof of how bad this guy really is! 100% complete FRAUD, unethical and unprofessional. he should be banned from BlackHatWorld.

    His prices are like overpriced to the top, and if you notice he was always posting to get freebies whenever there were any posts related to free twitter followers, free youtube likes, subscribers etc those kinds of things. You probably haven't spent much time here but the guy seemed like a complete joke in my opinion.

    Yep I'm fairly new to this site, I actually came here looking for tools/techniques for SM fan building. I've since then learned - the only sure-fire way to build highly targeted and authentic fans ethically is to host contests, polls, surveys, coupons with like-gates, etc.. Anytime someone claims to be able to add fans without passwords and such = the profiles are fake, PVAs or just standard accounts that will eventually get banned. They serve no purpose aside from increasing your friend/follower count, and actually put your account at risk of getting banned.

    This guy is likely just selling these overpriced packages with little to no intentions on actually delivering. He's a middle man who's sourcing the work via FIVERR, if I had to guess. But then he doesn't even do that well.

    I would avoid MySocialMagic at any and all costs, unless you feel like giving your money to a 14 year old kid who has no intentions of delivering what you've ordered.

    MySocialMagic: You don't walk away that easy, you skipped the part about trying to snake their client, massive shortages on the order totals, and the reliability of your offered services. You do a lot of free promotion around here, so if you want to keep your account I would suggest addressing the issues and not trying to drop a word in and skate away.

    myinternetempire: Do you have any more logs of the skype exchanges? I feel like you may have cut out some parts where you freaked out a bit.

    Nothing I said was invalid or wrong whatsoever. 100% accurate and factual.

    Really? The last few posts on your service related threads are all negative. I'd be shocked if anyone was truly satisfied, unless they are just too illiterate to look into what you're actually providing.



    This is an outright lie. I provided a screen shot to show the account was suspended. What a joke lol.

    And I told you I DON'T CARE. I DON'T WANT TO HEAR ANY EXCUSES! If this was an honest mistake you should have made it right back on the 24th when I first emailed you. I don't want you to deliver ANYTHING as you are using fake profiles anyway and they are all in Pakistan. I just want my refund.

    You told me you were going to process the refund back on the 26th. It's been over a week since that day and I didn't get a single response to any of my many daily emails since then. Then when I caught you on Skype you told me you weren't going to refund me, instead you were now "delivering the order"... You ignored any secondary request for a refund. you have not processed a refund. If this were true it would have been processed back on the 26th. You also said "Well, I have your money".. I am attaching a screenshot of this. And for the record, I am not racist, but if I were, it has nothing to do with you not providing a service I ordered and paid for. I am just upset that I paid for 10K USA fans and you delivered 1.5k PAKISTAN fans. This does not make me racist, it makes me ANTI-MYSOCIALMAGIC. Also, those statements about what should happen to you were not threats, they were general statements about what I would love to see happen to you. People like you (con artists) deserve to die a slow and painful death, that is just an opinion of mine that I happily shared. I'm sure many other people you've taken advantage of feel the same way.

    Do you understand how ridiculous you actually sound? Not only can you not spell, but you are admitting to contacting my clients out from under me! This is NEVER acceptable - there are no excuses for this behavior! It's nothing more than a tactic to taint my client relationships and potentially steal my business. What do you mean you weren't able to talk to me? I sent you 2-3 emails a day and never got a single response! I added you on Skype and I'm online 24/7... You WERE able to talk to me + look at the message you sent my client, completely unacceptable and unethical!


    Well, that's not what you told me on Skype. You specifically threatened to use my card info. You even bragged about ripping me off by saying "I have your money"


    Yeah, thanks for contacting my client, getting my twitter suspended, adding 1.5 BS fans to my clients facebook page making me look like a tool, for refusing to give a refund, for using my credit card to make personal purchases, etc. Thanks, a lot!

    Agree with Bleemz, I think you need to sort this out now- as currently it is not sufficient. If you do not clearly deal wih the situation now, your reputation will be harmed even more. You have to be professional and remember you are running a business, the clients happiness should always be paramount, without customers you have nothing.

    That said, it might be too late to salvage your name... After reading this I wouldn't want to take the risk of dealing with you.

    MySocialMagic has been permmed. I didn't need to read the last bit, but it does help paint the picture a little more.

    Duplicate accounts, infractions involving selling bootlegs, he offered his "US Address" in another thread even though he's not in the US, picked up quite a few free followers on social platforms with a dupe account and most likely used them on paying clients; general shitbaggery behaviour.

    It just shows that not everyone is what they seem. I have never dealt with him, but he seemed like a regular, involved member of BHW- nothing really triggered that he was a complete douche...

    He got me too. That is the first time I have been burned by a provider here. Who would you recommended for providing fans/views/followers?
