    On Nov Paid $100 per 10 articles, he never sent the articles only lots of excuses. I contacted several times to get my money back with no luck. I am done. Mod please ban this guy. Thanks


    The usual excuses "storm cut power", "baby is sick" etc.

    "Just letting you know that yet another delay has come up. My power is currently out here at the house and it might be awhile as the cold front apparently brought down some trees here.

    I'll be sending them today if it comes back soon but if not we will have to leave because of the temperature until tomorrow.

    Again, I'm sorry for this but little baby comes first and no heat is bad! Haha

    Shelton Sellers"


    "I'm going to be out of town for a few days for Thanksgiving events so let me know if you need anything re-written and I will get on it when I get back!
    Sorry it took so long and it won't happen again." (he sent empty zip file)

    "I can't talk right now because the baby is sleeping."

    "Well I called my assistant who is in office and asked her to send the articles since I can't get to that computer right now.

    "I have them on my work computer and am on vacation time. Apparently she couldn't find them and sent a chapter of a book I wrote last year sometime.
    I don't know why. I am afraid that .rar file is all that is left and it is messed up as well.
    She said it shows 0 bytes there too, like you said." (assistant? on vacation?, then he sent me an email saying that he is homeless and is moving.... what a vacation!!!!)

    on dec 18th"Still working on everything. Not scamming you. Juggling like 15 clients in a bad situation with no Internet access alot of the time, or a house to go back to. Trying not to let everyone know my struggles but I guess I don't have a choice I suppose. I'll be getting them to you still, not scamming you."

    jan 1 "Yep, sending them as soon as I finish unpacking. Got kicked out of my apartment over the holidays by a roommate so I've been moving with no Internet over the past weeks."

    Scammer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Talk about being creative with the excuses..geez
    Its funny that he could contact you all those times with stories, but couldnt send you a zip file with your articles lol
    Sounds like he obviously had no intention of ever doing the work he was hired for in the first place.

    cbar126 has PM'd me the required proof.

    @shelton_sellers now has a little less than 48 hours to respond with his side - or be perma-banned.

    Everyone else, unless you are involved, do not post in the thread.

    there is no "side of the story"...

    unfortunate events came about, i don't have the money.
    i will pay him when i can.

    end of story.

    as you see from other iTrader's, i am not a scammer.
    i still haven't had the extra money to this day because of living situations, family, etc...

    do what you need to do, but that is all i am saying.

    Thank you for coming forward.

    Ok, here's the deal - In November, you took $100 for a service that you didn't provide. You've had PLENTY of time to provide that service but have failed to do so. Now you are 'willing' to refund the payment but don't have the money to do so. You may not be a scammer, but you certainly have done nothing to earn the money that was given to you for a service.

    You have 48 hours to come to terms with the Op. Terms that he finds acceptable.

    1) The terms could be either you pay him back the full amount he paid you ($100) OR that you provide the service you agreed to perform in the first place.
    2) The terms MUST have a specific date to be completed by - again, that must be acceptable by the Op. Because this has gone on so long, I don't see anything longer than 1-2 weeks MAX would be fair. This would give you time to either get the money or write the articles.

    3) Failure to obtain an agreement with the Op or to abide by the terms of that agreement will lead to your Perma-ban. Your account is now in his hands - if you want to keep it, you have 48 hours to find terms that he will accept - or you will lose it. The burden of this is on you.

    PS. Notified @shelton_sellers of this post.

    You would think after all this time he would have found a few moments to write a measly 10 articles

    He never contacted me or anything to settle, certain people are just scum bags full with excuses of problems that were created by themselves and off course they blame someone else. I see it all the time, this "entitlement" that make them believe they are the victims or that they deserve better and give a dam about the rest.

    Really piss me off when somebody just grab your money, tell you that it is on vacation and then just ignore you. WTF?

    For example, even if he does not have a pc, he can go to a public library and write the articles. His job is 4 blocks away of a public library and there are 9 in 2 miles radio. (college town).

    Mod, please ban this guy. Thanks.

    It was a company check, we have a bookkeeping service and checks gets sent, my accountant has helped us to save lots of money, this wasn't his fault.
    We run a small SEO company, webdesign and we also own like 50+ adsense, amazon and clickbank sites.

    It's been 48 hours - No agreement has been posted.

    @shelton_sellers hasn't logged in since I gave him the 2nd notice - makes no difference to me: perma-banned.
