    Intruder,

    Normally a mod will pop in and post within a few days - give it a little time. If more than 5 days goes by without a mod posting, then msg one along with the URL and ask if they could check it out.

    What does his rep have to do with anything? I have been at -20 before, and at least one of the most reputable members in this forum has also been at -20 before. Sometimes people give neg rep for nothing. But regardless, if he has a legit shit list then it should be posted. +5 op :D

    The OP was kind enough to send me a PM explaining his rep now I know and if the OP wishes to expand on his rep I am sure he will post info!

    I was not making an issue with his rep simply asking for a clarification - which I got - Thanks

    It is really scary to read about scams occurring here. You should have taken payment in advance.

    It was only 2 day work read skype chat, this is third and last time...
    Now I will take 50% in advance, whether it's a 2hour work or 20 day work

    $900 for a "simple 1 page web design", the fact that he was willing to pay that much for 10 minutes work should have been a signal to stay away. You'll know better next time.

    The good thing here is that when i first read the title i thought u lost $900 of actual money, now seeing the u didn't, i have came to conclusion that you actually earned ALOT more then $900 here, it was a life lesson. Now you will never be scammed again. Lift up your head and move on. Karma will get him.

    Actually, I checked his BHW profile and seems to be a reputable member of BHW from '09 I think, thats why I trusted him...
    will never happen again...
    For a single page $900 is not more cause I made a very good web page with awesome graphics and also added some php scripts file in backend for a form and for checking the imei status of the iphone...
    Many newbie make website in $100 also but I'm not one of 'em
