    Alright, so i've been dealing with this guy to post for me on craigslist for some time now, but all of a sudden, he stopped posting and the $35 i paid him for the last posting seems to be gone. This guy wont reply my msges or tell me anything. I opened up a dispute on paypal to get my money back and he simply threatened to escalate the dispute and that he will win if he do that, so basically take my money and nothing will happen.
    I closed that dispute because he promised to post my ad the same day.
    Paid him on the 9th of August and today is now 28th, and still nothing.
    Besides, if he is not going to post my ads, why not return my money.
    Below are the Instand messages we exchanged, so you all can see that am not making anything up. And in all fairness, he's been a great guy to deal with, until now. All i need is my refund.

    sizzorkay(8/9/2009 9:30:30 AM): hey, payment sent, so you can start tomorrow, i have new text ads we can try, each comes with its own title, so whenever you get online, let me know so i can send it over to you

    sizzorkay (8/9/2009 10:28:18 PM): hey, wrote u earlier, do not post anything until you get the new text ads, thats important, the image ad you've been using are no good anymore

    sizzorkay (8/11/2009 3:31:58 PM): dude, whats going on?


    sizzorkay (8/12/2009 11:30:02 AM): listen, send me my money back if you know you can not post, dont have time waiting on you over and over, so refund my money to me.


    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:45:44 PM): hello whats going on? I had to relocate my office because of a few breakins and lost all connection to the internet as things were getting situated. I wouldn't have the dispute opened like that because if I escalate it, I will win.

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:46:22 PM): Did u even hear what you are saying, if you escalate it u will win

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:46:28 PM): u forgot its my money?

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:46:33 PM): wow

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:46:36 PM): We can either drop this or I will win
    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:46:38 PM): up to you

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:46:40 PM): go ahead, escalate it

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:46:42 PM): ok

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:46:54 PM): u dont have to, its my money, so return it, simply as that
    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:47:02 PM): i paid u for a service u did not provide

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:47:09 PM): its as simple as that

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:47:16 PM): no arguement there

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:47:42 PM): I can issue you a refund within 7-10 business days. If thats unacceptable to you, then I will escalate it. Up to YOU to drop the dispute. If not, like I stated, I will go ahead and escalate it. Not a smart move on your part, but its all up to you
    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:47:56 PM): dude, do u even think at all

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:48:00 PM): lol

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:48:06 PM): you are threatening me after you have my money?
    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:48:08 PM): wow

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:48:12 PM): wow

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:48:18 PM): there is something called reliability

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:48:24 PM): if u know u cant do what i paid for

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:48:27 PM): you should have let me know

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:48:51 PM): as i've said, no need for arguement, i paid for something i did not get then you are threatening to sit on my money

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:48:56 PM): It wasn't that at all, please reread what I wrote above
    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:48:59 PM): go ahead, $35 wont kill me,

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:48:59 PM): We had to quickly move our office

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:49:01 PM): immediately

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:49:24 PM): Why do you think I'm just now responding to you?

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:49:32 PM): Just got everything situated

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:49:40 PM): dont ask me that, am not in ur head or place

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:49:43 PM): so i wouldnt know

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:49:51 PM): Ok, well I'm not here to argue

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:49:58 PM): I just wanted to see if we can fix this or not

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:49:58 PM): am not either

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:50:19 PM): if u are ready to post my ads, good, if not, give me my money back, simple as that

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:50:38 PM): so its all up to u

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:51:26 PM): I will be ready. I have to get the ads ready for you. I missed a great deal of time and it fucked me up all around but I had no choice. We almost got everything taken from us. The last thing I like to do is be a week out of work. If you want to work with me on this, then drop the dispute and we will continue like normal and then no hard feelings whatsoever.

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:52:04 PM): looks who is talking about hard feelings, u the one who let me down, not the other way around

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:52:11 PM): will drop, but be ready to post

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:52:13 PM): thats that

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:52:19 PM): OK

    sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:52:49 PM): what email should i send the ad to

    Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:52:55 PM): craigslist.postings@ymail.com

    Craigslist Postings (8/20/2009 3:18:30 PM): They will be posted soon here. I'm just extremly backed up at the moment but will be getting to them no later than tomorrow

    sizzorkay (8/20/2009 3:18:42 PM): k


    sizzorkay (8/24/2009 10:36:14 AM): hey man, so you kept telling me you will post today, tomorrow, still nothing, paid you since on the 9th, today is 24th, this kind of delay is wrong, if you can not post, just give me my money back coz am sick of this waiting game, its either you deliver or refund what i paid you, this is going way too long.

    sizzorkay (8/24/2009 9:45:01 PM): dude where have u been

    Craigslist Postings (8/24/2009 9:45:18 PM): here working

    sizzorkay (8/24/2009 9:45:32 PM): so whats up with my ads,

    sizzorkay (8/24/2009 9:45:48 PM): paid for this thing since 9th, u know wat the date is now

    sizzorkay (8/24/2009 9:45:58 PM): if u can not do it, it shouldnt be hard to refund my money


    sizzorkay (8/28/2009 12:53:30 AM): dude, i can not believe u gon do this to me man, what a shame, atleast reply msges, this isn't how to treat someone after taking their money. Not fair, but its $35, you can keep it, hopefully ppl on bhw will know how unreliable you have been, you dont take money from ppl and not do what you are paid for.



    So basically those are the msges i exchanged with this guy, and you can see him threatening to escalate the dispute and win, someone with common sense wont say that, afterall, its my money.
    So, from the 9th of August till 28th, i think i've waited enough on this guy.

    Didn't read that whole thing way too long.

    It sure does seem odd a guy who was providing you a service got so pissed all the sudden and acted in that manner. Very odd. I am sure he will get on here and state his side of the story. Just don't see a reputable person even putting up any sort of dispute over $35 bucks when it could cost him his reputation now. Very odd indeed.

    If this was my business and I couldn't make the posts that someone paid for, it would not even take one second for me to refund the payment. It is just common sense on how to run a business.

    And for anyone hiring a poster understand that CL changes constantly and while the posting company might be posting thousands one day all that can change in 24 hours. So keep this in mind when you hire a poster. Everything can go south quick(so cut them a little slack). But they should instantly(or within 24 hours if they can't overcome CL) refund any and all remaining balance when they know this happens.

    Goodluck

    Me and Jacob had a very understanding issue and have had been dealing with each other for a few months now. Not even really sure where this came about because he has my email address to contact me. I only get on instant message to help others and discuss price quotes. You could've easily sent me an email if you were having so many issues with waiting on the campaign to get started. Refund will be issued within 5-7 business days. Sorry it couldn't work.

    I dont' sit on the chat clients all day, so email IS the best way to contact me. First option would be to send a message via IM. If I don't respond, its because I haven't gotten on at all. You could've then resorted to the other 2 options of communication by sending me a PM through here or simply sending me an email. I got no emails, no PM's, just offline ranting messages. I know its a quick way to jump on the bandwagon and post this useless conversation to get pity for yourself, but as you see I stated at that point I would issue you a refund and you just wanted the ads done. Their were changes on my side with Craigslist and I got a little behind. You did a dispute without even trying to resolve the issue with me personally, so once that is settled, you immediately jump here. Noone scammed you. Noone took your money. Its stated clearly that I'll issue you a refund. Just because its not done on YOUR time does not mean it will not get done. A refund will be issued. I have no reason to take a little $35. Crazy, lol.

    this is why you should be safe with who you deal with. Make sure, you check there bhw account "itrader", "rep", "thanks", and everything else that counts. You could even has em to show proof your legit.

    This is like the 4th shitlist on this guy... I hired him and it didnt work out, i had to wait 5 days for a refund.

    Why not just do your job right? then none of this would happen.

    Am surprised too, and worst thing is, when being serious and chatting with this guy about when he is gonna post my ad, he will reply with "lol" when i don't know whats actually funny to him, i waited since on the 9th till now, i think i exercised a lot of patience here, and as i've said before, we never had any problems till now, and communication is very important, if am sending a msg and no one replies and yet he kept coming online on and off, that's annoying. $35 isn't much, but wouldn't want someone sitting on my money either, thats something that person gotta work for.
    He explained to me he was moving to another location and all that, and i gave him all the time anyone could need, so yea, all i want back is that $35.
    Threatening to escalate the dispute i opened and win that dispute to keep my money is the most annoying thing i ever heard from this guy, who will make such statement when that money doesn't belong to you.
    Anyways, hope i get my money soon and this will all be over, coming on here is the last thing i wanna do, but he left me no choice

    You yourself received a refund buddy, so case closed for you. And another note, I'm still working with several BHW members who have actually been with me for quite some time, so I'm doing something right. Just because it didn't work out with you, doesn't mean I'm not doing my job right. Those who understand CL and what it takes to post are the majority of my other clients. And no need to have pity for yourself either because you had to wait 5 days for a refund. Come on. Its like it hurts you somewhere inside still that I actually DID give you a refund. The others whom I may have given a refund have moved on and parted ways. They don't have a need to come into more than 1 thread and state "it didn't work out". Your input has nothing to do with what me and this gentleman had going on. Your remark "none of this would happen". Shit happens buddy. Not every client/customer is going to be pleasant. Part of life and it happens. I don't dread it because I have several long term clients who could really even care less about the "shit list". Most are actually busy focusing on the leads/sales I'm generating them then always thinking of negative things. So now that your out of the way, back onto the real story of what happened with Jacob:

    First, the campaign was taking a bit longer than usual. He did a dispute before requesting a refund or even speaking with me. We have had several transactions together that it did bother me that he did a dispute before ever sending any emails or PM's asking for a refund or expressing his concerns. Why rely strictly on Yahoo IM to communicate? Not everyone does that and he has my contact information. Secondly, after I saw that dispute is when I wanted to work things out with him anyways. Normally I would close the dispute and issue the refund with difficult clients but we have had several transactions with each other that I figured I would like to still keep him on as a client. So I encouraged him to work with me. He dropped it and stated "be ready to post". Thats fine. This campaign was a completely different setup then his previous ones. I also got behind in schedule so it was taking me a bit of time. He sent a few messages asking the status and I responded to the majority of the messages that I saw when I was online letting him know we are getting closer to completing the setup but still wasn't completely finished. Before you know it, I come online and see an offline message stating for me to "keep" his $35 and "how could you do this" crap. I have no clue where the fuck that came from. From my understanding, we were both on the same page the entire week from the last time we spoke. So really this is just crazy because I had no idea their were any issues or concerns whatsoever. If their was and I wasn't on Yahoo, then a simple email or PM could've been sent asking for a refund. Nothing was ever asked again until today. The first time, we resolved it and he told me that he'd rather have me post then wait that long for a refund anyways. So now today, is the 2nd time hes asking for a refund and wanting to cancel out. But instead of asking, he went right to the shitlist. Thats perfectly fine, but to go into creating a thread about a BS story is just plain stupid. Your first option before even trying to share your opinions in the shit list thread about someone is to contact them first and sort it out. If I REFUSED to give a refund, then thats a different story. But to say you need help getting your money is just plain crazy. You never even told me you wanted a refund after our first dispute was closed and resolved by the both of us. A simple email stating "hey this isn't working out, and its still taking a bit longer then before, can I get a refund". That would've worked perfectly fine. You didn't even speak to me about anything of the nature after the first dispute was resolved. So to me, we had everything situated and you knew I was getting yours together. If it wasn't quick enough, then you should've told me and asked for a refund. I never got anything like that. So this whole thread is a complete shock, believe it or not, but thats the story.

    This entire thread should be deleted. Your story doesn't justify anything. As of now, a refund will be issued within 5 business days. Problem will be resolved and we can part ways. And as you can see above, I DO give refunds.
