    Have you ever been scammed while you were trying to make money? Did you try to make your money back or make it right? I was scammed a few times when I first started out but once I showed my persistence and kept emailing the person and sending invoices and they must have gotten tired and finally just paid me to leave them alone!

    You were lucky....but obviously worth your persistence in your case. Not everyone of us was so lucky..... Buyer beware always!

    I was scammed on Bux.to. Took a premium membership, had made $9000 on my account, and never got paid. They promise to pay members within 30 days but i allready am waiting for a couple of years... =)

    Such programs pay a little percent(maybe 1%) of the people so they put on a good review what creates more memberships for them.

    Lost $400 or so from when different sites banned me just before payment day. It happens. Try not to linger on it and move forward.

    If you lend someone money and if he does not show his face forever. Money was worth it. :)

    Yes, I was scammed for $160 USD + 30 USD for overdraft fees on PayPals side. I provided my service and software to customer. Everything as 100% ok then slap.

    Oh well, I'm not the only one.

    Scammed a few times but only for $30 or so. I'm quite careful and do my research beforehand.

    I was scammed 5 USD when do fiverr gig exchange for the first time, I dont know the process so I directly give the person good feedback and when I provide the link to my fiverr gig, the person said his paypal got limited then he told me to wait, and I keep waiting until now, I know that I can edit the good feedback to negative but I dont want to do it.
