    Hey,

    I wanted to post this so others wouldn't be taken for.

    On the 26th October I sent $250 via Skrill (Moneybookers) as the first half of payment for a website design and coding. It was agreed on Skype that the entire project would be complete within 5 days from the money being sent. His exact words being "i'm very much available and can do it quickly."

    He then dissapeared, ignored any emails and Skype messages. When the project deadline passed I told him I wanted a refund, he then talked to me on Skype for a bit saying how he's just had a few delays and would complete everything no problem. Another week passes and nothing is done, so by this time I figured he'd scammed me and won't be completing the project as promised.

    It was my fault as I should have noticed his main thread was locked. However even if I had this lock was during a period when there was heavy flooding in the Philippines which explains why he would have let people down, plus he was never banned from BHW.

    I have bigger things to think about than 250 bucks, it just pissed me off that he wasted 2 weeks of my time when I could have been working with someone else. I now have a new designer from here that sent me a concept within 24 hours (it looks better than any work wbdzgnr has ever done), so I guess that's one positive to come out of this.

    This is him confirming payment on Skype: http://s15.postimage.org/5q5oy6mu3/Skype_Log.jpg

    I very much doubt mods will ban him, but hopefully this thread will avoid any one else getting ripped

    Peace!

    I was also scammed by Wbdzgnr (Nicobal Ballesteros) for $1000 on October 17th.


    • Xoom Tracking Number: X061836037251XXX
    • Sent to: Nicobal Ballesteros
    • Amount Sent: 1,000.00 USD

    He was to design a one page landing page for me for a bizopp landing page, but he never delivered and will not respond. He's a scammer and a thief.

    His Skype is: wbdzgnr and he goes by 'Nico'

    The design samples he sent were good, but STAY AWAY because he will steal your money and never do the work. :(

    $1000.00 for a one page landing page - sounds expensive to me, bet he got someone on fiver to knock up the design samples

    Dude,

    It's a 3 months salary for a round the clock shift job in many Asian countries.

    Anyways, I wouldn't have sent that much money as gift though. But, I wonder how so many people are scammed by the same person. Even his sites is suspended by hostgatore.

    Now, will you people got any chance to get a refund? Just want to know, to be clear about that for future.

    Never, ever send anything via Paypal as a "gift." You void your rights if you do.

    I think i have just been scammed also, except i sent him cash via western union (stupid i know) but he has designed sites for me before and so i had no reason not to trust him. Anyway because i paid with western union i have his full address etc...

    Im giving him a few days to respond to me and if he doesnt i think we should take action
