In the thread relating to this scammer a moderator asked people to post to the shitlist if they lost money. Our company lost $220 to labs8vivek who promised to deliver a Huffington Post article. He has disappeared and apparently some others lost exponentially more money that we lost. He seemed like a decent person and only wanted half the money upfront and replied to me that it would be a week late. Since that time he has disappeared from everyone and hasn't posted to BHW for some time. I filed a dispute with Paypal so hopefully they will help out. Please avoid labs8vivek and be wary of any similar offers promoting links in major publications (he offered Forbes, Techcrunch, many others too).
