    Hi all,

    I'm sure many of you here on BHW know professional20. Have any of you heard from him either via PM or other avenues such as instant messaging on aim, yah00, msn, skype, gtalk, etc. in the past week?

    I have been trying to get a hold of him since December 30th on aim, as well as email, and have not had any luck since. A friend of mine has also been trying to contact him as well, even via PMing on BHW, and has not gotten a reply back. According to his profile, he signed on to BHW as recent as yesterday, so I would assume he would've gotten my friend's PM and replied, considering they've been working together for 7-8 months.

    To reiterate, I've emailed him, aim'd him, and my friend has PM'd him. We have not gotten any response back. We are both doing something similar to a JV with him, so communication is a must and time is of the essence.

    Has anyone been in recent contact with him or know of a way to contact him directly?

    Seriously? No one else on here talks to him? Well when was the last time, whether it was recent or not, that you heard from professional20?

    Thanks for the input Yar, the aim you reached him by started with a T correct? Or was it something different?

    I just find it odd that he signs in to BHW almost everyday, but doesn't PM back people he's been working with for 7-8 months... also you'd think if he's signing on to BHW daily, he'd go on aim as well like he used to...

    I'm just hoping he's on vacation.

    Anyone else hear from him?

    Did you even bother to read my thread?

    Well, I don't want to say he ran with my money, because that's not exactly what happened, plus I want to give him some time... I'm not one to slander one's reputation without solid proof. Basically I paid him for a method which would work, except for the fact that one of the variables that are crucial for it to work is outdated and does not work, which means the entire method is useless, unless that piece is fixed.

    When I talked to him on the 30th, I communicated that I was not entirely satisfied that I paid money for a method that is innate unless this variable is updated; I basically told him I would like a solution to the problem since what I paid for was a system. I was not unruly, angry, or irrational. I was very calm and understanding, which shouldn't be my job considering I paid him with my money. I still didn't get a competent response.

    Since then, neither me or my friend have heard from him. I sent him a message on aim, no reply, an email 3 days ago to an email address he said I could use to get a hold of him easily, no reply, and my friend sent him a PM a couple days ago, which he has gotten no reply for, even though professional20 signed into BHW yesterday. We also tried calling him with the number he gave my friend, both of us got a "this customer is not receiving calls at this time" message. I won't pin him on this though, since he could've gotten a new phone or be out of the country on vacation. I'm hoping the latter is the reason.

    So we're basically puzzled as to where he went. If he went on vacation, fine, but he should let us know, after all, we're both paying customers of his. I know he's been banned before though; this is the only thing that makes me weary. I didn't want to shit list yet because I want to give one more week.

    In your mind.
    No euphemisms needed, when someone ignores you but logs in it means they don't want to hear from you, at least not right now.

    But in this case you mention it could just be that he's trying to fix it, we just have to wait and see.

    Due to the context of the problem, I don't think he's trying to fix it, because he hasn't replied to my email, aim message, or my friend's PM.

    I didn't want to shit list just yet, but it seems very odd that he doesn't answer PMs from his customers...
