    Just paid for a facebook page recently ($700) and didn't do enough research /due dil. I paypaled this guy the money, after which he said it was 'done' and promptly removed me from facebook friends. As you can see from the left image, no admin access was granted.

    I later was browsing shitlist and came across this thread :http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...er-thenuts-500-cant-believe-how-stupid-i.html

    where almost the exact same thing happened to the buyer. The seller (TheNuts) uses almost the same exact language and smileys as Pulchritudinous, and also promptly deletes the buyer after. I think it is the SAME page he is using to scam others, as the buyer in that thread mentioned that the page ended with '2014' as this one did.<br><br>I already issued a chargeback with my CC, but please find a way to IP ban this guy.

    There is no need for me to notify Pulchritudinous as I just perma-banned him for hateful remarks towards other members, staff and a good portion of the world (racist comments). I'm sure that he knew this SL was coming and decided to go out with a bang.

    You say that you didn't do enough due diligence... I'm sorry to say, but I honestly don't think you did any. This member had created his account 2 weeks ago, then posted a bunch of useless posts and you sent him $700??? If you're going to donate money, at least send it to a charity rather than to some scammer.

    One of our members PMed me recently and said that I must need bandages on my forehead from banging my head against my desk while reading some of these. With situations like this one, I need to get myself a helmet... You guys are going to give me a concussion.

    OS, You have the patience of a saint.
    Most of these recent SL's haven't even been sophisticated scams, brand new user with 2 posts says they can complete a job/provide a service and somebody sends them $$$$, never to hear from them again.
    Come on people, for the sake of OldSalt's sanity, at least try to carry out some basic due diligence.

    You're completely right- definitely need to be more careful in the future. Thankfully I was able to reverse the chage- I just want to prevent this guy from scamming others in the future.
