    Takes the piss really - I have found 2 people selling my free Pinterest mass adder bot on Fiverr and the support team don't seem to give a shit. I contacted them last night telling them the two gigs that are doing this and they want me to send stupid amounts of info to them so they can look into it.

    I have described what will happen, in detail, when they start the bot - the slash screen, the links in the UI area etc and told them if they match up I will send them screenshots of the source code sat on my PC.

    I don't care that people want to use the bots, thats why I stick them up here for free but when scum sell the bot it rattles my cage.

    Now either 2 things will happen - either I stop giving out free bots (which I don't want to do!) or I start licensing the free bots which will mainly inconvenience the people who want to use them for themselves.

    Perhaps I should have an individual and commercial use clause....this has just pissed me off today. These people are making money off of my free bots!!

    Incase the sellers are on here, the usernames over at Fiverr are:

    - socialmedia4u
    - zenlisting

    Fuck it, if you can't beat them, join them I say - I am off to stick it up on Fiverr. Assholes.

    Do they even have some orders/feedbacks?
    I think that bots are quite unpopular on fiverr.
    I understand you,I've seen few using my copyrighted logos I used to make years ago for their gigs,reported also - nothing changed.

    Seems they've either taken them down or i cant see them! Damn right annoying...

    i would have had to purposely buy it to leave a negative review :)

    p.s awesome little bots of yours, keep smashing it!

    I think it's great that you make those bots for people. But expecting that no one would do this when you upload stuff to a blackhat community is also a bit silly. All the methods on these forums get copied and sold to others sites so the tools will as well.

    Oh aye totally agree - to be honest I now time how long it takes for bots (mine and other peoples) to go from here to other forums. That bit I don't care about but when people are taking the piss and selling it thats the one that gets on my tits.

    I am well aware how dodgy you people are ;)

    My money is the sellers are people from here anyway - one has admitted its mine and has paused the gig, the other one is still selling it.

    I was a bit bored and in a crappy mood this morning so thought I would go for it so apologies for venting on here :)

    That really sucks.

    It looks like zenlisting took there's down, and socialmedia4u stated they were cancelling their gigs due to having "so many orders". I saw the bot on socialmedia4u's page, and on both that they were selling invites.

    It's guys like these that make it difficult for everyone else around here to confidently offer and share their services with others out of kindness. I seriously don't blame you if you do decide to stop sharing, or even charge for your bots.

    That fucking sucks dude and its a real pain that this sort of shit puts great FREE offers from BHW members like yourself at risk of not happening.

    Maybe someone with an auto Fiverr messaging bot (you could probably make one :D) could bomb the shit out of their inboxes and fuck their accounts up.

    Just send in a DMCA notification to Fiverr. All sites should comply with them.

    Instead of adding a ton of protection, you could just put your site name all over the bot so you get "free" publicity.

    Oh no need to apologize it really sucks.. i'm not a coder or programmer or something but i can imagine how much it sucks when you spend time and energy trying to do something nice for the community and someone sells it behind your back.

    Ah well, looks like they are both taking gigs down......storm in a teacup over.

    Meathead - thats what makes me chuckle really, all the bots I push out have the bot name with a link back to my website, works quite well!

    Sorry again for the rant...the sun is out and I am feeling happier now!
    Now back to putting some bots together!

    They will most likely take them down now. But the real problem is this will keep on happening with all of you who have decided to share something on here, or other forums. Simply because some people are so dumb that they can't even figure out how to make a few dollars without interfering the efforts of other persons.

    When you create a free software add always an info dialog where you write that its free and not be sold... than when someone buy this and seen it claim always a chargeback and you can fuck the seller!!! Now if you see the buyers names, contact them and say that the bot was free

    Some members have no class. Instead of being grateful for the work you put in and share for free - they have to try and turn it for a buck. No need for apologies. I'd be pissed too. Happy to hear Meathead has your back and problem is solved. Best regards Fatboy

    Can you honestly say you're surprised by this? This site is hugely popular, not to mention, there are a ton of teenagers and kids looking to make easy/fast money.

    What I'm surprised about is the fact that fiverr even cared enough to ask for more details, then actually took down people's gigs. With the type of gigs I've seen there, the saturation of same gig after same gig, and the fact that I couldn't find a 'report' link anywhere to flag a specific gig, it makes me wonder how much longer they will last.
