Arg, so I got scammed pretty bad on Flippa. I lost $2k. Here's the story... I saw a fairly decent site and the seller said he was buying traffic for his site from an ad agency which sends traffic from social networks. He was then monetizing the site through another ad agency which pays CPM as opposed to CPC. So getting high amounts of social networking traffic makes sense to create the revenue. I also had a few other sites in that niche too (which made me more excited about this site), so I was thinking this will be amazing. I would be able to increase my profit on my other sites as well if I got access to this magical advertising agency he was using. Anyways, the Escrow Inspection period was set to one day. And I told the seller that I will reject the site if I don't see traffic within the 24 hour period. So he set it up and got a bit of traffic fed over to my site so I was content. Then the inspection period ended and it was hard to get a hold of the seller and the traffic stopped. After many attempts of trying to get a hold of him, he was busy setting up and preparing for EID (An Islamic Celebration). So I was like, fair enough. I'll message him again when its done. Now, when EID had finished, he completely stopped responding to me along and I never got access to the advertising agency either (which I don't believe even exists anymore). The sad part is that he had all the proof. He had video & picture proof up on Flippa and traffic proof. He even sent a high amount of traffic while the site was in my possession (and it was indeed social networking traffic which is what I expected). I even had his Skype contact, and spoke with him voice to voice over Skype about the site. I contacted Flippa and Escrow. And they can't do anything. Escrow already released the funds and this dude made $2k unethically. He also sold two other sites to this one other individual. I got his contact information from the WHOIS and he got scammed too. I'm kinda pissed, not only at the seller but myself too because this is the first time I actually lowered my guard a little bit on Flippa (by allowing him to have such a short inspection period). And everything did seem legit.
