    $250? That all?

    Dude, move on and chalk it up to experience. I just lost over 6 grand on a gaypal chargeback reversal for one of my websites. I got severely screwed, but I won't do that shit again and make the same mistake.

    Anyway, if you divert that energy elsewhere as in moving on and looking for additional ways to make money like right here in BHW, then you'll be better off.

    just my 2 cents worth of info.

    I agree $250 is a learning experience. Besides thats money you didn't have to start with.

    After how long paypal won't chargeback someone?
    And how many times the same person can claim that didn't receive an item and want the money back?
    Paypal is crazy sometimes about this chargebacks and I don't like it.

    Aww ya I saw your name there, heck you were even a mod??

    Here is what Im guessing this is, he is paying or atleast promising to pay people to post so he can turn around and flip this site to some unsuspecting sap.

    To earn the $$ you needed to make the posts and sign up 25 people.
    Can you contact the 25 people or atleast most of them?
    Let them know what happened? If you get alot of people making noise for you you might get somewhere. Or atleast get the people you signed up to leave.

    I know how you feel. I went through the same thing being new.

    Anyways, the most you can do is keep on contacting the person who was supposed to give you the money. You can let them know that you plan on telling as many people as you can about this.

    Sometimes that scares them because they don't want a bad name attached to their company.

    Good luck!

    I know it can be tough to move on. Did you spend any money? If not it is money you never had. Better luck next time.
