    Hi there,

    I've tried to contact Harro and Pofecker by PM but haven't got an answer yet.

    Think i was scammed for 10$. Not that i care about that amount but i don't want other BH members to fall for the same offer.

    Guy i bought service from never delivered. He is a three star member here so i trusted that would be ok. Tried to PM him, tried to contact him by mail trough his website. no answer.

    I don't wanna go public with his name untill i am sure that nothing is "normally" gone wrong. He has no activity on this forum since jan 04.

    Moderators some advice please. Lets do this by PM

    Seems very odd that a established member would throw away his/her reputation for $10...

    More then likely something personal came up their lives that has kept them offline. I'd give it at little more time if were only talking about such a tiny amount of $.

    I didn't post about my 10 bucks, i posted to save you guys the agony of paying someone and not getting what you paid for.

    And i posted cause Harro and Po didn't reply to my earlier pm about this.

    If the replies i get here are the general opinion then just close and delete the topic. Tought i was doing a good thing in warning you guys.

    No prob. lesson learned. back to business

    I hope this isn't going to give all 3-star BHW members a bad name! :D

    That is why i didn't mention his name here and hoped that one of the moderators could shine a light on the situation of the member in question.

    Well it's pretty hard for them to keep track of every member's personal life. In case you haven't noticed, we're entering the final stages of the jobpocalypse, and the mods have a lot going on right now. I'm sure they will get to you as soon as they can. They have a good track record when dealing with scammers.

    Just be patient, 4 days is not too long. If there was a death in the immediate family or something, it could take a while for him to get online.

    If you bought something from a reputable member that only cost $10, I'll bet you he comes through. This kinda stuff happens all the time.

    Understand all of the above, just want to add that it's been one month now without any communication. Again, i don't care about the 10$. I just hoped to help keep BHW a place where you know you get what has been offered.

    i'll hopefully report that it was all a misunderstanding. No names mentioned, no harm done.
