    Hello,

    On April 16 I hired a user from this forum to with the username stylistic to provide me with 200,000 Instagram followers.

    I spoke to him on Skype at the address: ****

    He said he would deliver within a few days if I paid 50% deposit to his Paypal address: ****. I sent him $110.

    By April 21 I had not heard from him so I sent him a PM here and he responded with some BS about 'Enjoying the Lenten season' and that he would deliver by April 25.

    By April 26, I had not heard from him at all so I opened a dispute on Paypal for the transaction saying that I had not received the service at all.

    Guess what he responds? "Payment was not for a service, it is for a virtual product. Also it was delivered."

    So basically, it looks like his scam is to get 50% deposit off people and then string them along with BS and then claims it is a 'virtual good' to try keep Paypal deposits without delivering.

    What a scam artist.

    Anyone else that wants to post that isn't directly involved will start getting full infractions instead of the 1 point ones I just gave out.

    Hopefully everyone will take that as a hint to actually refrain from doing it.
