    Hey guys,

    Usernname fb500 has made posts asking for articles and promising payment. I want you to know that it is one scam to collect as many articles as possible before he bolts. He said he'll look at my article days ago and I just reminded him and now he claims that he is not using the article.

    I honestly don't give a shit about a silly iOS 6 article. I honestly wouldn't have cared if he hadn't been a dick about it. The article is worth only $30 but he was obnoxious and dared me start a shit list thread. I'm guessing because he possibly has multiple accounts. He even said I should search for it. Probably because he used a spinner and maybe even did some manual spinning.

    fb500 has been notified of this thread and has 24 hours to respond. I also sent a pm to midnight_focus who offered to send fb500 an article in that WTB thread.

    If you aren't involved, don't post in this thread.

    Same story as OP. I provided a 700 word high quality article. I got the same response as OP did [copy paste one].

    And here I thought I was the only one. Same story bro. Mine was for $40 for a 500 - 800 word article. I figured it wasn't that big a deal to start a shi*t list. But now that it's in the open, I thought I might as well chime in.

    So much scams all the time. Why can't people just pay for other people work?

    Thanks, bz.

    If we can't resolve it at least we can stop him from doing it again.
