I checked the rules in the sticky before posting. I posted a WTB in the BST section of the forum on 02/10/2012 for 5,000 Gmail Accounts. User "EyeSight" contacted me via PM and offered 5,000 accounts for $150. I contacted them via Skype, as requested, we discussed the price. As I had been contacting so many people about these Gmail accounts, I lost track of who had quoted me what. When I did contact them on Skype, the price had gone up from $150 for 5,000 accounts ($30 per thousand) to $140 for 2,000 acccounts ($70 per thousand.) I agreed to pay as even $70 per thousand was acceptable. Still, a price increase of 140% in a couple of days should be a warning. Like I said, I was contacting about 15 people regarding accounts. They told me to pay via Paypal. I did, immediately. They said that the delivery of accounts would be in .RAR format and password protected. They confirmed they received payment and sent me a .RAR file via Skype file transfer. Immediately after, they went offline on Skype, have not been on since. They did not give me the password to the .RAR file at any point. I have obviously tried to contact them via all means, to no avail. I gave them a 24+ hour warning, to explain their actions and they haven't and now I'm following up on my promise to report them to the Shit List, have them banned and file a dispute with Paypal (although seeing as it's Gmail accounts, I'm not sure there'll be a chance I can get it back.) I've been a BHW member for over 3 years. Their account was created in Aug 2012. Upon doing more research, they say they live permanently in Malaysia in their signature, yet the Skype account they contacted me through "eyesightBHW" is registered to Jill Smith in Washington, USA. The Paypal address to which I sent payment "[email protected]" is a Non-Verified US account in the name of Jose Miranda. They have a thread on BHW talking about falsifying documents with Paypal. They say they expect to have their account limited. From doing more research on their post history on BHW and being a detective (which my Dad actually is IRL) I have found out they're a Filipino national living in Malaysia. I can afford to lose the $140. I'm not raging about the money. The wasted time is worth much more than that to me and I'm very angry about that. Obviously I wouldn't be posting without first having collected all the evidence. Here it is: ------------------------ 1. My original WTB thread in the BST. http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/want-buy/488497-wtb-5k-gmail-accounts.html 2. Their PM on BHW reply was: http://i.imgur.com/RDTvr.jpg 3. I followed them up on Skype to discuss price and payment. This is their Skype profile, which clearly shows they are user eyesightBHW: http://i.imgur.com/FIZtN.jpg 4. This is the Skype conversation we had about payment method and when they would deliver: http://i.imgur.com/6ByJr.jpg 5. This is the Paypal payment I paid immediately. http://i.imgur.com/ys22a.jpg 6. Their BHW thread discussing trying to circumvent Paypal's rules and falsify documentation to send to them. http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/481414-question-can-i-verify-my-paypal-account.html "hello im just wondering because I know I can verify my paypal account but I know i'll get limited someday .. when that day comes will they ask me for passport and drivers licence because im not driver yet nor traveller" Not yet a driver or traveller? What bullshit is this? 7. Their BHW threads revealing they're Filipino. http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/483099-live-like-sir-philippines-100k.html "i have a relative she marry a german guy ..the german guy have a normal life in germany but in philippines he's a millionare haha he purchased a beach called laza cove guess what ??" and http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/dropshipping-wholesale-hookups/481953-question-wholesale-philippines.html - "Wholesale from Philippines." Their current BHW signature - LIVING SINCE 1970 IN MALAYSIA - means they're most likely a Filipino national resident in Malaysia. 8. Their post saying they use multiple proxies which would explain the Skype account in the US which was probably an attempt to give them some credibility. http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/domain-names-parking/478864-hurry-free-asia-domain-name-limited-time-no-credit-card-required.html "use proxies lets take advantage of it " They contact me with the opening line "you there bro ?". Not many ladies called Jill Smith from Washington would talk this way. 9. LASTLY and this really did make me LAUGH. They created a thread complaining about AdFoc.us scamming them out of $17. Yes, $17!? http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/482067-adfoc-us-confirmed-scam-site-proof-inside.html Oh the irony! Try being scammed out of $140! ------------------------------ The alarm bells should have been ringing the second I paid and they immediately went offline. I've had this happen before and that's normally a sure sign they're planning on scamming you or it's already happened and they have scammed you. Initially I just thought they were withhholding the password so they could wait for the Paypal funds to clear, but when I checked their BHW post history and played detective all the information I found pointed towards a scammer. I present all the evidence and request that BHW tells other people about this person and bans them from the forums for good. I can take $140 hit. I just want others to be aware. Also annoying pieces of *expletive* like this denigrate the overall quality of your WTB sections. As a result of this I will never be using BHW to buy and product from any user, ever again. I don't care so much about the money, like I said, it's the time. This person has caused me such a waste of time and lots of trouble for themself. What a f*cking twat. Good riddance.
