    [9/23/2015 10:27:14 AM] BHWMIND: Hey gaming traffic?

    [9/23/2015 10:28:04 AM] BHWMIND: buying banners on gaming websites/blogs etc.
    [9/23/2015 10:28:08 AM] Kalelreturns: no
    [9/23/2015 10:28:22 AM] Kalelreturns: ah
    [9/23/2015 10:28:25 AM] BHWMIND: ok well its basically ppc u dont pay until someone clicks
    [9/23/2015 10:28:33 AM] BHWMIND: but media buying is so good for traffic
    [9/23/2015 10:28:37 AM] BHWMIND: whats your website?
    [9/23/2015 10:30:52 AM] Kalelreturns: its **************.com
    [9/23/2015 10:31:53 AM] Kalelreturns: how much per click would you say?
    [9/23/2015 10:35:33 AM] BHWMIND: what countrys do u want traffic from the most.
    [9/23/2015 10:38:18 AM] Kalelreturns: US
    [9/23/2015 10:39:35 AM] BHWMIND: ****************.com
    [9/23/2015 10:39:53 AM] BHWMIND: has it got anything on it it messes up with adblock enabled on my machine.
    [9/23/2015 10:40:39 AM] Kalelreturns: yeah its a cpa site, Im trying to configure it to popup on click but having trouble
    [9/23/2015 10:41:34 AM] BHWMIND: ah maybe i can help u with that
    [9/23/2015 10:41:39 AM] BHWMIND: whats your advertising budget
    [9/23/2015 10:42:08 AM] Kalelreturns: fairly small I just want to test it out first to make sure its profitable
    [9/23/2015 10:42:38 AM] BHWMIND: how small minimum media buying campaign is around 200 usd
    [9/23/2015 10:42:48 AM] BHWMIND: but u would get a ton of traffic for that.
    [9/23/2015 10:43:05 AM] Kalelreturns: well damn little more than i expected
    [9/23/2015 10:45:15 AM] Kalelreturns: do you know about how much traffic?
    [9/23/2015 10:45:26 AM] BHWMIND: whats going to be on the site
    [9/23/2015 10:45:29 AM] BHWMIND: when its working
    [9/23/2015 10:45:41 AM] BHWMIND: gaming traffic is plentiful but just have to optimize the advertorials
    [9/23/2015 10:45:44 AM] BHWMIND: so its done right.
    [9/23/2015 10:45:45 AM] Kalelreturns: I'll remove the cpa so you can see it
    [9/23/2015 10:46:25 AM] BHWMIND: u might get say betwen 2 and 5k hits
    [9/23/2015 10:46:33 AM] BHWMIND: depends how well we can tweak and optimize.
    [9/23/2015 10:46:36 AM] BHWMIND: ok do that.
    [9/23/2015 10:47:32 AM] Kalelreturns: fuck me. this stupid plugin Im using is limiting my traffic
    [9/23/2015 10:48:29 AM] Kalelreturns: i had no idea it was doing that
    [9/23/2015 10:48:32 AM] BHWMIND: whats your website wordpress?
    [9/23/2015 10:49:11 AM] Kalelreturns: yeah Im using instapage plugin cause I found a nice landing page on theme forest and it uses instapage
    [9/23/2015 10:50:04 AM] Kalelreturns: well this screwed up everything
    [9/23/2015 10:51:20 AM] BHWMIND: how about

    [9/23/2015 10:55:59 AM] Kalelreturns: how are you going to fix it
    [9/23/2015 10:56:12 AM] Kalelreturns: you'll have to redo everything
    [9/23/2015 10:57:29 AM] BHWMIND: let me see the current website then plz.
    [9/23/2015 10:58:39 AM] Kalelreturns: cant instapage locked me out cause I hit the traffic limit and I have to upgrade to remove the cpa
    [9/23/2015 11:00:56 AM] Kalelreturns: I just need to start over
    [9/23/2015 12:57:36 PM] Kalelreturns: ok looks like a got another theme up and running and Im ready to send traffic to it
    [9/23/2015 6:01:44 PM] BHWMIND: hey
    [9/23/2015 6:01:50 PM] BHWMIND: had to go earlier
    [9/23/2015 9:45:42 PM] Kalelreturns: ah its cool
    [9/23/2015 9:50:16 PM] Kalelreturns: so i think everything is good to go I just need the traffic but I don't really want to speed $200 just for a test.
    [9/23/2015 9:53:53 PM] BHWMIND: I understand
    [9/23/2015 9:53:57 PM] BHWMIND: but u get what u pay for bro ;P
    [9/23/2015 9:54:03 PM] BHWMIND: this is top tier quality traffic.
    [9/23/2015 9:54:40 PM] Kalelreturns: do you have screenshots or anything from previous stuff
    [9/23/2015 9:54:44 PM] BHWMIND: u will get cpa conversions

    [9/23/2015 9:59:58 PM] BHWMIND: media buying is powerful if done right.
    [9/23/2015 10:03:46 PM] Kalelreturns: alright I guess I'll try this out
    [9/23/2015 10:04:07 PM] BHWMIND: Show me your site at the moment
    [9/23/2015 10:04:32 PM] Kalelreturns: http://www.****************.com/
    [9/23/2015 10:05:33 PM] BHWMIND: interesting niche
    [9/23/2015 10:06:26 PM] BHWMIND: Did you think this up
    [9/23/2015 10:07:15 PM] Kalelreturns: yeah i thought it up a few years ago and kinda stopped doing it cause i got busy with other stuff
    [9/23/2015 10:08:23 PM] Kalelreturns: made like $30 with like no work
    [9/23/2015 10:08:38 PM] Kalelreturns: then i stopped

    [9/25/2015 8:53:11 AM] Kalelreturns: its been over 24 hrs since you said you would be doing some testings, I haven't seen any traffic to my site and you haven't been responding to me. If I don't get a response from by the end of today my time, which is about 15hrs from now Im going to report you on bhw and I have you ip address aswell.

    After I sent the last message, he removed me from skype. https://gyazo.com/36bbed65024c413549a43918afb2f4f1

    I admit some of this is my fault for not catching this scam before I gave him the money because this was suspicious from the beginning.
