    I hired SERP to write an article for me about why Donald Trump would be a great president. He did but was 2 weeks late and wrote about the wrong topic. When I told him I can't pay him for it, he tried to create a shit list against me. Despite the fact he delivered 2 weeks too late a completely wrong service.

    Unfortunately I only have a part of our skype conversation history:

    [30.06.16, 12:57:21] SERP BHW: What's your email address?
    [02.07.16, 15:39:40] SERP BHW: I'm going to provide you with a second 400 word article for free. Please provide me with the topic.
    [10.07.16, 21:39:54] Buzz: You have 2 days to deliver my article, else I will create a SL post.
    [10.07.16, 21:40:08] Buzz: You had 2 weeks now to write it.
    [11.07.16, 19:32:39] SERP BHW: Hello are you on?
    [12.07.16, 16:32:45] Buzz: I am fine thanks, when will you deliver the article?
    [12.07.16, 16:33:04] Buzz: I will create a SL tomorrow Old_Salt has already said he will approve it
    [12.07.16, 16:49:30] SERP BHW: The SL won't be necessary. To simplify matters I will just issue you a refund on Thursday.
    [12.07.16, 16:49:49] Buzz: I would be much happier if you could send me the article
    [12.07.16, 16:51:44] SERP BHW: In that case, can you give me until this Friday to deliver it? If not, I will issue you a refund on Thursday. If you're willing to wait until Friday then I don't want the SL opened.
    [12.07.16, 16:52:22] SERP BHW: I've just been extremely busy between work and appointments due to an accident I was involved in a couple weeks back.
    [12.07.16, 16:53:04] SERP BHW: Let me know how you'd like me to resolve this. Either way, I want you to be satisfied.
    [12.07.16, 16:53:50] Buzz: Lets do it this way, you send me the article on Friday, and you do one additional with another topic for free ok? And I will also create a positive itrader for you.
    [12.07.16, 16:57:54] SERP BHW: Yes however I wouldn't be able to provide the second one by Friday as well.
    [12.07.16, 16:58:40] Buzz: when will you be able to deliver the 2. one? Next Tuesday?
    [12.07.16, 17:00:16] SERP BHW: That shouldn't be an issue.
    [12.07.16, 17:00:32] Buzz: Ok great, please use this as topic for the 2. aricle: https://www.upworthy.com/an-ex-union-rep-wants-to-give-everyone-1000-a-month-and-its-not-as-crazy-as-it-sounds?c=tpstream
    [12.07.16, 17:00:40] Buzz: I really hope you will do it this time
    [12.07.16, 17:02:28] SERP BHW: Alright I'll be in touch soon.
    [12.07.16, 17:02:35] Buzz: Great, have a nice day!
    [12.07.16, 17:02:54] SERP BHW: Please get in touch with OS notifying him of our conversation.
    [12.07.16, 17:03:05] SERP BHW: You as well! ☺
    [12.07.16, 17:03:08] Buzz: Yes

    I sent him $9.50 upfront to finally create the correct article on the 27.06:

    No, that is S.O.P. here when a person scams and does not clean up his mess.

    I'm not sure what that actually means as he did not SL me.

    I think it is absolutely the right decision. I have waited now for over 2 months giving this guy more than enough chances. He already told me 3 weeks ago that he would refund me 'today'.

    It seems like he has no empathy at all, and thinks that he is a very special snowflake.

    the sad part is that you kept waiting him for 2 months? and you were still hoping to get it done, glad its only the price of a burger.
