Dear BHW,

It is sad that it is the first time hire a freelancer here in BHW and I got a really bad experience.

The thing is that I was looking for a experienced bot developer. And there is a Jr.VIP users @SpoonFeeder approach me and took my offer. (https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/looking-for-a-bot-script-developer.1074862/)

Then, we further discuss more my project in details. As I need the bot must be done or at least could be tested before 31/1/2019, and @SpoonFeeder confidently took my offer and money without any hesitation and claimed that he could do the bot within two days after he got the payment (January 10, 2019).

Proof:

Ok, and then I made my payment (January 17,2019)

Let me tell details about my project.I need a bot can make bulk purchase on certain website.And the website start selling at 9AM each day during the period of 17/1 to 31/1. And during this period, i have keep asking him to check the website about the queue system, cookies, captcha etc, which he didn't do.

After @SpoonFeeder get the payment. He seems to be less active to response my message and he cannot show any proof that he has started the development. And I have the whole conversation record showing that he didn't even know / cannot explain how the bot should be developed.

And till now. As he cannot keep his promise on delivering the bot in 2 days and he cannot even fulfill a simple promise on communicating with me. I want a full-refund. He keep responding slow and even disappeared.

To be honest. I thought I finally found a right person at first. But seems I was terribly wrong.

He should have messaged you this past couple of hours. Please keep us updated.

Sadly, same thing still happened even i have given him one more chance to prove that he is not a scam.

After the previous time, he have contacted me.


Once again, I trusted him and gave him one more chance. And As there are important targets at 4/3 and 8/3, he promise that he can made the bot to be able to be tested in end of February.

And till now, He disappeared for almost four days now, and I have once again lost my opportunity as I trusted this irresponsible person. No response, No proof of work, No bot testing. No refunding, only lies.

Is there any way I could get my money back?

Please post the details in here for transparency leaving out any personal details of course.

@MisterF has a rough 3 weeks ahead of him so it will help in the process to get you squared away as well.

I have to tell that @SpoonFeeder has been keep making up some excuses for delaying his work for almost 4 months.

I have already lost my time and money. Please don't make the same mistake as I have already made.

Hello,

i saw that one of BHW members had bad experience with Spoonfeeder.

Well, i would like to join.

I posted in november 12.2018 thread: [Help] HTTP - HTTPS Godaddy - Wordpress

There Spoonfeeder commented on the thread to PM him my URL, so i started conversation with him.

He done the http to https task perfectly, he even explained everything to me, even though i had some pretty dumb questions.

However he affiliated me to different hosting (Vultr), which i was perfectly okay.

I had hosting from Goddady or Wordpress, i am not certain since this is not my specialization...

I do not understant Website development, so i was glad someone can do this whole for me.

I bought his service (speedupmysite), which should make my website load much more faster, faster than 99% of other WWW sites.

This kind of service cost me $30

SC of the payment:

Confirming the payment screenshot:

By this time my site was empty, meaning the wordpress hello world...

Then i asked him more questions related to Website - Wordpress plugins...

After that i asked him if i can change the Wordpress profile options,

*edited*
But in my chrome it is fast.
I guess it was thanks to the cache already saved in my browser...

After this i started working on my website.

Later on when i felt confident enough, i sent him first message, which he didn't respond. So two days later i sent another one:

He did respond me with this message ↑, however this has been last time we've got in touch.

As in PM is requsted by Spoonfeeder, i sent him the login information and waited.

I sent him next two messages, however without any respond...

The latest message has been sent: Jan 15.2019

The last time i've seen him on this forum engaged was Feb 17.2019


What i am reporting here;

The website load is not fast enough for the price i paid. Plus he said he will optimalizate my site after it will be done.

Average load time is 22s... As you can see on my website (greatinsta.com) are only few images, what has been optimized to the minimum sizes and small amount of text.

Here is one of my closed thread asking people opinions about my website: link

As you can see, almost everyone has complaining about the speed...

Since this shitlist is running I thought to share my experience here as well. I hired @SpoonFeeder recently to make a website for me and basically, I ended up with my time being wasted and hearing the usual excuses. Honestly, I wonder why Andrew is even accepting any kind of jobs from the HAF section while he clearly cannot complete those? He seems like a nice and talented guy, just this kind of working style is unprofessional in my eyes.

However, I was lucky that no upfront payments have been done, so besides my time, nothing got lost here. Actually, I feel sorry for the other members who experience pretty much the same as me. Just my 2 cents in regard to @SpoonFeeder, his working style, and this shit list post. (Please delete my post if it is inappropriate)

Hey Bros,

I also have been scammed by @SpoonFeeder, he has dissappeared with $800 of my money that i gave to him MONTHS ago... Why does he STILL have an account on BHW, I have no clue.

He had no problem taking my $800 to “develop a bot” that Ive been waiting for, then after 4 months of lying to me, he tells me he cant make the bot.... I asked him for a refund months ago, been trying to contact him ever since... I am so angry at this person. The worst part is that he disappears, i dont even know if paypal will honor my customer protection at this point, because he kept stringing me along, maybe thats his tactic, to string you along long enough for the statue of limitations to run out.

I dont know, but I do know that I am ANGRY.


I know this probably doesnt belong here. So I will open my OWN shitlist thread, hopefully, mods will accept it asap!

Hello, he has some big personal troubles.

Ask paypal for refund. I've done that and got my money back. However it was “only” $30, so you'll see.

I understand about the personal troubles... But WHY still take peoples money? Especially if you KNOW you cannot deliver.

So seem his self-claimed "personal troubles" cost me HKD 20,000. And now I still cannot get my refund. And his account is still not blocked.

We have tons of discussion on this project. And he has suggested some methods to build the bot.

At that time, I didn't spend my time in studying the website in detail. So I trusted him and also, as I thought there must be some mechanisms to protect each parties' interest within the deal between normal users and "Jr.VIP users", but sadly turns out it doesn't.

You sent him $2550 when he is so vague in the chat? Ai ai ai... You can literally FEEL his empty words through the way he is typing. Next time read between the lines and listen to your intuition, I'm sure it yelled at you during all of this! :D Hate to see shit like this go down and I really hope he'll get perma.

Rule 4. If you are not directly related to the situation, or are not offering information directly related to the situation: do not post in the thread.

esponding slow and even disappeared.

We will address this pretty soon.

A SL thread is not resolved quickly in some cases as the staff works to make everyone whole if at all possible.

I don't have anything from him even he has got access back for three days. Are you sure he is trying to handle this rather than contacting with his client base to fool other people again?
