    Joshua Stephens, Joshua Stephens, Joshua Stephens i hate scammers. hey maybe you should get clad and your own elite proxy server. ips will cost real cheap. $1 or less!!! clad creates the email, confirms em, even see's if your adds go live. clad is the sh*t. it keeps tracks of your stuff. i love clad!!! sorry to hear about the $7k, even if you say it's not alot of cash he still needs to learn his lesson.

    Joshua Stephens, Joshua Stephens, Joshua Stephens

    hope i said his name enough for you man and good luck. stop paying for posters and do it yourself. you will avoid these scams and save tons of money. it don't even take that long with clad. well worth the money!!!!

    Well i got scammed 3 times a day and total amount was $63. Well i was really shocked as everything happened in nearly 4 hours! Well meeting 3 scammers back to back was really shocking. And i can understand your feelings. In total i have been scammed for about
    $90. Not much amount but enough to make me careful from next time but we have to take some risks.

    Dudes still here and posting, not banned. Hopefully it's just bad business and not a full-on scam act. Either way you are on the first page now for that name :amish:


    If he don't respond, you might be able to talk one of our crazies to going down to where he is, earning a fat commission. BHW needs a bounty hunter service. :AR15firin

    Call your bank..maybe u can do a "wire call back" if u have the conversation online in a email or message maybe u can talk to the bank manager, and they can call the wire back.

    Yes a while back if I remember correctly, there was a dude that was ripping people off under the same last name. It is unreal that he is still using some of the same info.

    I hate scammers. They make it hard for us who are really doing good business. I've been doing a few jobs off of forums and it seems harder and harder to make sure you are paid for your work. Some people don't mind a down payment, especially if its small.

    I started providing larger services over the internet and I'm finding it hard to trust or get people to trust you. I had an argument with a guy over on another forum. He didn't trust me to pay a downpayment of at least half for a buttload of articles and I sure as hell wasn't going to do a bunch of work and have no clue if I'm going to be paid or not.

    Anyway, I'm rambling on again. I'm really hoping that you can get your money back. Now, I'm wondering. Because of the large sum, is this something you can report to the bank's fraud department?
