    I figure I might as well post this even though it happened a while back, it could still save someone.

    There was a member named Michel on this board from the Netherlands... He Had a lot of trust built up in the forum, and was very good at persuading people.
    Anyway, long story short he scammed me out of 4k. I was a newbie to IM at the time and didn't know much.

    He made everything sound so easy. We were supposed to do a partnership with cloaked pages/xrumer etc... Over a month I sent him 4k, and he just disappeared.

    He tried to come back to the forum recently, and was banned.

    WARNING: If you are currently talking to someone named Michel from the Netherlands, it's best to stay away.

    His paypal email was something along the lines of debaker. I know I'm not the only one he ripped off.

    Oh yeah, also stay away from someone trying to promote the bigfatrichlosernetwork or something similar to that because it's probably him.

    You know, for a moment, I actually changed wanted to also do a JV with him, but I read his posts, analyzed his profile and understood that better not. Thanks for warning nonetheless.

    Hey I pressed thanks but wanted to also thank you for your honesty. It's hard to admit being ripped off however by sharing you are helping others keep their hard earned money. I know I've gotten ripped off in the past (not on bhw) and avoided talking about it just to protect my ego. Now I know that part of doing business (online or offline) includes the occasional fraud however as one becomes wiser and smarter, and learns from his/her mistakes spotting potential fraud becomes easier and easier.

    At first I was pissed... put a few holes in places I shouldn't have, but I got over it. You truly live and learn. I honestly with I knew more about how to track someone down from online.

    If anyone could help me recover my money, I'll split it with you 4k 50/50... so who's good at tracking people *cough* HARRO *cough*
    It would be nice to see some of that back though for sure.
