    So, I had to take payment from a BHW member who bought my Resellers hosting but he said he can't use paypal but his credit card only...so I created a small product on Plimus and so that he can pay me using his credit card via plimus...

    later he got his paypal fixed n paid me through it...

    2day I got an email from Plimus saying:

    lol...that page had nothing to offer...I created that only to accept payment from this BHW membr here n some1 just bought it...lolz...

    [​IMG]

    here is the sales page:

    Code:
     https://www.plimus.com/jsp/buynow.jsp?contractId=2327034
    so the point is, what should I do? should I refund it? or can I just take the money n run away...what can that guy do as a counter action??

    plimus pays on 15th of every month n 2day is 15th so...may b I got lucky :p lol

    If I were you I would refund the $50.

    If not, that guy can complaint that he's not going to get anything. Maybe do some charge back, then you have a bad relationship with plimus. Is $50 worthy for burning bridge?

    No. Let it go. You're not a scammer. You're a good guy providing good service. No need to screw people.

    Scamming a fellow BHW member (or anyone) is not a good idea.

    Do not runaway; refund it.

    I would refund it. Look at the name and country of where the order originated from. I smell fraud.

    If you're sure, both payments are from the same person, then better return one payment back, otherwise he will open a new thread here that you have scammed him..

    lol.. that do not want to happen..

    I know alot of you don't believe in karma and stuff, but I would probably say refund it, you don't want a bad rep do you really whether it be on here or just on the world wide internet, and anyways I believe you do something good and something good will happen in return, it is very tempting and very easy to say I will just keep it even if it is just a small amount or a large amount, I myself would be very tempted, but I think in the long run it's better just to return it.

    Anyway just my $50 dollars worth :D

    hi

    I think you should refund it because even if 50$ wouldn't make you a rich person but scamming some one for such an amount can definitely make you a scammer

    why would you like to spoil your reputation for such a petty amount

    Moreover maybe he's a member on this forum :p:p

    and maybe he is seeing this thread too

    :D:D
