    It's been a week already and he's not logged in and no likes on my page. I'm convinced it's a scam account just to take my money.

    Does anyone else notice the irony, or is it just me?

    No, i just talked to him through PM on here. I PMed him twice afterward on 27th and 29th but no answer.
    He logs in on 28th and doesn't answer. Then I never hear from him.

    I was about to order from the same guy LOL..

    I new there something fishy.. $8/1k likes even after the facebook update.

    You can hardly get 1k fans for $40 now.

    Never do business with newbies.

    Almost did business with this guy. $8/1k seemed WAY too good to be true, but I was gonna go for it. Never heard back from the guy after I told him I was interested; glad I didn't now!

    i hate to admit it, but i got scammed by him once and did not have time to report it, figured he would have changed his account name.

    it was during the beginning of the egyptian revolution and i was trying to buy likes for all of the january 25th revolution groups i could find (they were all in arabic so it was difficult).

    He private messaged me and said he could do it and showed me some pages, I explained to him that i wanted to do it to make the groups look as big as they should be since their internet was being censored. For some reason I thought it would be like standing in protest with them. I got overly excited, he even offered to throw in extra to help out the good cause...I kind of thought something sketchy might be up, but I didn't listen because I was so excited to try and help out a revolution!

    I paid him $80 bucks and then he disappeared. After multiple attempts at contacting him over skype it became obvious that something was up. I felt real dumb especially because I commented on how his paypal address was spammysammy.

    It was an annoying process, but I disputed payment, and after a while I finally got a reversal...
