    Hello everyone,

    Around a week and a half ago I needed some xrumer work done so I turned to my fellow blackhatworld members to help me out. I have worked with alot of bhw members in the past so figured this was a good place to turn. I received a PM from fellow BHW member Advance SEO, his profile can be found here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/253255-advanceseo.html

    We discussed details about the work over skype and he said he would complete the work and deliver it within 24hours. After 24hours he said he was having problems with xrumer and needed one more day, I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and gave him another day to deliver the work.

    What happened the next day? You guessed it, the work was not delivered. At this point, with no work and not being able to reach him I had to pay someone else to do the work. I emailed him at advanceseo@yahoo.com asking for a return of my money. He kept making excuses as to why he could not and has not refunded me.

    The xrumer deal happened on the 26th of April and I am yet to receive any type of refund from him, only more excuses to not give me my money back. This in turn makes him a lying, scamming piece of loser shit. No one on this forum should ever do work with him as he is nothing but a thief, for the moderators who read this please ban his account, I can quickly and easily provide screenshots to corroborate everything I have said to expedite his banning process.

    Here is all the information I have on him so people can avoid dealing with this piece of shit:

    Blackhatworld profile: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/253255-advanceseo.html
    Known Emails: advanceseo@yahoo.com and unknownymousperson@yahoo.com
    Name on the paypal transaction: Charize Delos Santos


    Thanks

    And please mods let me know whatever I can do to get this guy banned

    Hi,

    You should file a dispute and escalate it to a claim on paypal immediately. I've experienced this before and paypal helped me get my money back.

    I was looking for someone here for optimizing my Thesis theme.

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-wth-i-need-thesis-theme-customized-asap.html

    Among others a guy called AdvanceSeo sent me a PM that he can do my job.

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/253255-advanceseo.html

    I gave him $50 in advance to his Paypal. We agreed in a 48h delivery. After I paid the guy disappeared for 24 hours. When I got a hold of him I asked if he really can do this job in the next 24 hours, because it is urgent and lets not waste eachother's time. I offered he can keep $20 and refund $30 if he cannot do it. I am a nice guy:( He said he well do the job, trust him.

    He started to work on it, he had no idea where to find custom.css (pretty obvious in Thesis). When he found them he messed up the custom php so my site gave all kinds of php errors. He asked me if I have a backup of my site. That was the point I was starting to seriously worry, but I could fix the php issue for him so he supposedly could continue working. He did not.

    48 hours passed, nothing has been done. Guy sends me a message, something like sorry, trust me I can do this. That's when I said enough of this bullshit and asked for a refund. He said he will give it, but he didn't in 24 hours. I opened a dispute on Paypal.

    Today he sent me a PM not to worry, he is sending the refund. But instead he has written to the resolution center.

    I have all communication records for mods if needed.

    Job has been done by another freelencer in less than 2 days.

    Yes he is scammer. I created an article asking for freelancers to write me some articles in Greek. I gave him my keyword to write the article. He said that he will do it. 2 days later I told him that I am in a hurry ( I really needed to start working and learning). Instead of this I told him that I wanted him to be a little faster cause the site I am working on is for a customer of mine.

    The answer was: "Why didnt you tell me that it was for a customer?". Seriously? Cause I didnt need to I guess? Does it make any difference?
    Anyway I asked him if it's ready and he said "yep soon." From that time I was 100% sure that I wouldnt take the article and that he is a scammer and still 1 week later no answer.

    I was so glad I didn't pay him before the article.

    I can provide photos or publish the pms if it's needed.

    Navimeister I wish you ll get your money back man.

    Wow, just the fact that he responded to a Paypal complaint with "Item was digital, virtual, or intangible" proves he is a seasoned scammer who knows the ropes.

    It's perma ban time!

    Yeah, he didn't even try to say he delivered, went straight to the intangible excuse.

    I had a similar problem (not from here from an ebay scammer) and I called them. Calling first is an advantage from you you seem legit and many people understand from your voice the "hatred" that you ve been scammed. You cant lie about it even if you are an actor.

    But he seems like a "well trained" scammer so call Paypal you never know whats up with his mind.


    * I want to send him a pm and swear so much guys like him make me disgusted :mad: *

    I will try to keep it straight. Some BHW users suggest I can get the money back even if it is not a physical product if I give PP a call.

    you don't sound like the $30 is the real issue - the real issue seems to be outing his scamming ways, which you have succedded in doing.

    Yeah, I am not too worried about that money. Honestly it just pisses me off that he gets my money this way.

    That's a solid proof of scam right there. Even without the convos, the paypal screenshot is enough for a ban appeal.
