    I ordered a website from Swifty http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/237438-swifty.html paid him half upfront and the deal was it would be made within 24 hours, well weeks later I still don't have the website and he's stopped responding to me on Skype.

    I have full Skype and PM details to back this up etc, I'm not looking for mods to get involved unless they want proof, I'm posting this more as a warning for others not to deal with this guy.

    I have not ment to scam anybody, I had some issues that I would like not to talk about on a forum. I will issue a full refund plus extra for wasting time. Once again I am not a scammer.

    Ok thanks you could have just told me this on skype though instead of ignoring me, either way I will be happy with just a refund you don't have to pay any extra and as of yet haven't received one.

    Still not received a refund, he came on skype and asked for my bank details which I don't want to give out seeing as I paid by Paypal, told him to refund by Paypal and never heard back again.

    Never got my money back from this yet I see Swifty still visits the forum daily, IMO this guy is a scammer and should be banned

    Um, I'm sorry to bump this really old thread, but Swifty doesn't really seem to be banned? Or is it a bug or something? :)

    There 's an open bug that sometimes get triggered under certain conditions and gets members un-banned. Please report any resurrected necro-zombies you spot so we can put the BFG 9000 in good use :)

    I don't know how this slipped through the cracks. Regardless, he is now permanently banned.

    Cheers!

    Haha, the thing was, I already called out on him being unbanned more than a year ago but I remember that jazzc banned him. And now I randomly checked this thread and noticed him being unbanned again and thought it was kinda weird.

    Cheers :)

    Either way, "Swifty" hasn't logged onto BHW since 2013.
