    Hi guys,
    I am new here and had a post up on hire a freelancer section .
    i paid him 20$ advance for him to work on my project, and I havent received or heard anything yet, he promised me something mid week . that was 3 days ago, i havnt seen him online since i made that transaction.

    but i found a couple of posts on this paypal scammer if you search for his email. i can post the link to 2 articles here also his name etc etc.
    but want to make sure i can do that here before i post it.

    wow but seriously.. why would a member with reputable status do this ?
    fail..
    i should be happy i only spent 20$ tried sending him a lot of mails and pm s no response.

    See a simple G0ogle search, reveals all! You should have done this before transaction.

    this is his latest paypal email
    i did a search earlier and nothing returned, but sadly the psots on him only came up on april 12th after i made the payment lol..

    If you really want to hire somebody just have a deep look at his profile, see if he has reputation and if he has a sales thread look for how long it lasted without any kind of issues. This way you should be in the green and avoid any unpleasent situations.

    At the end screw $20 bucks, you know what hey say, every kick in the butt means one steap ahead
