    Hello, I made a posting here https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/looking-for-aged-adwords-account.892777/ looking for an Aged adwords account.

    On November 11th, I was PMed, by BHW user: Viraff https://www.blackhatworld.com/members/viraff.1014169/ screenshot: http://prnt.sc/dd03ps

    Red flag 1, he just joined recently. He messaged my on skype, his skype id is: virtualcrunetworks

    We talked a bit and great deal about adwords accounts. He sent me screenshots that looked legit (screenshot: http://prnt.sc/dd03us ) , as well as a payment method which he was offering for me to use. He wanted $485 via bitcoin (see screenshot http://prnt.sc/dd04cx . Kind of a lot but I agreed since was also offering a payment method which he did show a screenshot of.

    Red flag #2, he was a middleman http://prnt.sc/dd040v . I should of declined at this point to move forward, but against my better judgement I sent him the $485 in bitcoin (see screenshot http://prnt.sc/dd04fs ). I usually only buy accounts from the owners and not middleman.

    Now this is where all the fun begins!

    -I asked him if any reason he couldn’t secure me the account, he would give me a refund right? He said yes (see screenshot http://prnt.sc/dd04nh

    -On November 15th he told me he couldn’t secure my the account. I asked for a refund. (screenshot: http://prnt.sc/dd04qy

    -He says he sent me my bitcoin back, he said it’s pending, and he uses localbitcoins. http://prnt.sc/dd052l

    -“All of a sudden” localbitcoins contacts him to submit documentation (screenshot http://prnt.sc/dd0578

    -He says he submitted documentation (screenshot: http://prnt.sc/dd05c0

    -He claims with the currency problems in India was the problem (screenshot: http://prnt.sc/dd05f8

    -He claims he’s not scamming me after giving me multiple excuses (screenshot http://prnt.sc/dd05jg

    -Localbitcoins declined his documentation, then he claims he will send me an amazon gift card instead (screenshot: http://prntscr.com/dd05pt

    -Then when that didn’t happen he says he will pay me back via skrill (screenshot: http://prnt.sc/dd06d2

    -Then he says he’s waiting bank transfer confirmation, (screenshot. http://prnt.sc/dd06g7


    That was a week ago, and I am still waiting to hear back from him, after his 10k excuses. He is not responding to my messages on Skype anymore.

    It’s obvious this was one big scam. So I decided to share everyone my story of being scammed, and hope everyone here does not do any business with this criminal. I wish he would refund me like he promised, but it’s evident that he will just come up with more excuses.

    The ones that are brand new and ask for payment upfront usually are.

    yes i should of went with my gut and not went along with it, but his screenshots seemed legit, and he gave me a payment method upfront. i guess you live and learn, and you really can't trust anyone on here. at least not anyone new. smh.

    Wow this is ridiculous. I literally had a 30 minute conversation with him last week on Skype regarding reselling BTC from here to Pakistan. I'm so glad i declined to work with him. He just seemed to fishy. He was looking for people in UK to send him 616 GBP 10 times a day to make 1k in profit from the arbitrage business. Remember guys, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is a scam.

    @Viraff has been banned permanently.

    Buying services or products from someone that is new here or has no history here is usually not a good idea.

    New people are not necessarily bad but they need to show who they are before you buy from them and you should NEVER pay upfront to a new person or one that has little history here.

    Someone that has not posted in ages and then all of a sudden starts posting is another one you don't pay up front. They would need to reestablish themselves here before you do business with them.

    Caveat emptor in an Uber sense is the way to operate when buying outside of a BST.

    I knew this guy was a scammer!! If I could just add one thing: I am highly confident it's the same guy from before, patrickclouis or whatever. I'm fairly sure of this. His whole pitch was exactly the same. And he came for me because he almost had scammed me before but failed. So likely there's a scammer regularly making new accounts to scam people from here. It be nice if we could figure out an IP or something to really ban that guy.

    i agree. if a user constantly is victimizing people on here using various scams. not only should their email and IP be banned. but a warning should come up if they are connecting via a proxy or vps to this forum.
