    A fellow bhw member "Rallow" took funds from me on 6/12 to clone a website and now he won't respond. Paypal calls him Richard Smalls. I guess he's been a little down and out but dang man. You gotta resort to stealing?

    I listed a want ad and he replied. He asked for payment and I paypaled him. A couple of excuses later and he won't respond. Isn't there a way he can banned for scamming?

    Turbo10 - post copies of emails/skype transcripts or whatever proof you have. You have to include that info in a SL thread.

    Mate feel sorry for you, but something which will aid you would be screenshots of your conversations/emails anything in the like. This will give us enough reason to go and rip rallow apart if need be, i mean just look at the portugalkix scam thread and you will see just how big our roar is.

    I don't get why people would want to steal someones money like that... I mean I see it as a blessing to make even $1.00 ONLINE.. seeing money hit my account makes me want to work hard for it so I can keep business coming / gain more clients from positive feedback...

    Shit List Rules
    BEFORE posting a thread in The Shit List, you MUST try to contact
    the member using ALL means necessary. Waiting 24-48 hours
    might be a good idea.

    State your case completely and clearly, including any evidence you have.
    You are prohibited from publishing a shitlist thread about a item or
    service that wasn't on BHW. Only issues with sellers/vendors that
    posted in the BST or Service sections, unless the scam was perpetuated
    by a person in a position of trust. (Staff members, Executive VIP's, etc).
    DO NOT post personal information. (SS#, Phone #, etc)

    I alerted him to this thread after my post and he has failed to reply.
    What does that imply?

    Ok guys. Just for the record. I did read the rules prior to posting and I did get a pre-approval to post this thread from a Mod. Now, I'm not sure what all I'm capable of posting along with what all you guys are looking for... but I'll give it a try.

    [6/12/2012 4:47:06 PM] Mark: cloned site. Price and lead time?
    [6/12/2012 4:47:58 PM] sonnie hitmen: $60 3-4 days
    [6/12/2012 4:48:27 PM] Mark: and you can put that site in wordpress for me?
    [6/12/2012 4:48:34 PM] sonnie hitmen: yes
    [6/12/2012 4:48:45 PM] sonnie hitmen: you want to copy everything
    [6/12/2012 4:50:34 PM] Mark: ya. basically just copy everything. As long as it's in wordpress, I should be able to change most of the info myself. obviously I need to change the company info over to my info but I think I can handle most of that.......I think...lol
    [6/12/2012 4:51:06 PM] sonnie hitmen: well i can help with that also if you need
    [6/12/2012 4:51:19 PM] Mark: that would be much appreciated.
    [6/12/2012 4:52:02 PM] Mark: I basically want that site but with my info instead.
    [6/12/2012 4:52:35 PM] sonnie hitmen: sure i can do that my paypal is dcoates@lolzer.info
    [6/12/2012 4:55:41 PM] sonnie hitmen: you still there
    [6/12/2012 4:56:52 PM] Mark: yup
    [6/12/2012 4:56:59 PM] Mark: checking references
    [6/12/2012 4:58:24 PM] sonnie hitmen: ok
    [6/12/2012 5:05:15 PM] Mark: ok. so any websites you've done or anything that would help make me secure?
    [6/12/2012 5:05:48 PM] sonnie hitmen: yea hold on
    [6/12/2012 5:06:46 PM] sonnie hitmen: [Thursday, June 07, 2012 6:42 PM] sonnie hitmen:
    <<< http://generalaltimaxhp.com/ www.minerskinz.com www.mixtapebiz.com http://www.internettvforums.com/ these are the ones i can remember i do all types of sites
    [6/12/2012 5:08:08 PM] Mark: brb
    [6/12/2012 5:14:19 PM] sonnie hitmen: alright
    [6/12/2012 5:21:27 PM] Mark: ok. man. Sorry bout that but I just got out of a contract with some supposed designer from Elance that didn't even come close to being a serious designer. Took me 3 weeks to talk him into refunding my funds.
    [6/12/2012 5:22:24 PM] sonnie hitmen: oh sorry to hear that this will be a simple project to me
    [6/12/2012 5:23:19 PM] Mark: That's cool. I will have another clone after this if you're interested and all goes well with this one.
    [6/12/2012 5:23:20 PM] sonnie hitmen: Bhw taught me alot and i wouldnt risk my account for $60 dollar
    [6/12/2012 5:23:51 PM] sonnie hitmen: Sure no problem
    [6/12/2012 5:31:57 PM] sonnie hitmen: do you want me to send you a zip or install on your server
    [6/12/2012 5:32:08 PM] sonnie hitmen: when im finished
    [6/12/2012 5:32:21 PM] Mark: install on server please
    [6/12/2012 5:32:56 PM] sonnie hitmen: ok no problem i will need your cpanel details
    [6/12/2012 5:33:19 PM] Mark: Yes. I will provide FTP details and other necessary info.
    [6/12/2012 5:33:39 PM] sonnie hitmen: also in the mean time you can think about a company name and any additional details
    [6/12/2012 5:34:38 PM] Mark: this is a brick and mortar business. I have all necessary info ready. Most of the content is all ready. Just need to get paypal to work, provide you said info and it's a go.
    [6/12/2012 5:34:56 PM] sonnie hitmen: ok
    [6/12/2012 5:35:27 PM] sonnie hitmen: you can send those details to frankiedog53@yahoo.com
    [6/12/2012 5:35:39 PM] Mark: got it.
    [6/12/2012 5:36:01 PM] sonnie hitmen: did you have any other questions
    [6/12/2012 5:36:48 PM] Mark: nope. I'll send funds as soon as I get paypal going. I'll send info later tonight.
    [6/12/2012 5:37:33 PM] sonnie hitmen: ok thanks for your business ill update you when neccessary
    [6/12/2012 5:37:40 PM] Mark: thanks.

    Mods aren't Gods. They're only human. If you saw what OP posted above there are people willing to help him for free! That to me is great support. :rolleyes:

    I'm am the original poster. And I've not received any help so far. Also, the mods could easily ban him from BHW so that he couldn't steal from another BHW member in good standing. Keeping the scamming down around this site would seem to me to be good for business for this site.
