    Ordered SMTP servers from Teo:
    - Payment sent on Feb 19, 2020.
    - Paid $65 for 1x server + set-up fees.
    1) Late late late
    2) Not dedicated IP
    3) Blacklisted IPs
    4) Rude/insulting ("listen moron" "you are mentally ill", etc)
    5) Promised help setting things up when he wanted the money, as soon as he got the cash he disappeared for a week and said he's not a teacher/consultant

    His service page:
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/innovative-unique-rent-your-own-smtp-mail-server-send-unlimited-emails-free-vps.616013/

    Hilariously identical problems to other people he scammed:
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/scammed-170-by-teotech.1047681/

    Brief Explanation:
    I wanted Teo to set up SMTP mail servers for me. Getting this basic service from Teo was the worst headache ever - never want to work with him again. My biggest concern before purchasing his service was not understanding how bounce servers worked with MailWizz or how to set them up (stupidly not realizing how simple they are) - he assured me he'd help. I wasted 3 weeks waiting, then with fake servers and finally struggling to figure out the bounce servers.

    End result:
    Money back

    The pictures will speak for themselves....

    His server wasn't working so he kept blaming me that I had pirated copy of mailwizz - over and over and over and over...

    He gave me access to a shared IP from sendinblue.com to use:

    Shit List Concluded

    Unfortunately, @Teotech has not been online despite being aware of @remimartin's intentions to contact BHW about this (via their Skype conversation). As it's been over 48 hours, I have no choice but to permanently ban @Teotech from Black Hat World.

    @Teotech, if you wish to have your account unbanned, you'll need to sort this out with @remimartin by issuing them a refund. Once you've done that, open a ticket with support.blackhatworld.com.

    As this shit list thread has concluded, shit list rule #4 no longer applies in this thread.

    Sad to see as @MisterF and I both did some out of the box things to help him put back in the day and considered him to be a man of his word.

    Agreed, it's disappointing when you go out of your way to help someone and then have it thrown back at you. A real slap in the face.

    @remimartin, I'm posting this to inform you that @Teotech contacted BHW support recently. He's been informed that he needs to resolve the issue with you before he'll be allowed to come back.
