    I sent him 550$ on 25 Feb., via paypal so he can send them to my bank account. With some other adjustments and cash for work, it became 590$ and he said he will sent 700$ as upfront of other deals. You know what? I STILL DON'T HAVE ANYTHING!!! Nor I got any transaction ids or proofs. Firstly he said he will do direct bank transfer via western union but when I called them, they said they don't do any direct bank transfer! So I told him but he denied that fact and said they do, I even confirmed 4 times! Then he said I don't know nor he gave me any code given by western union. So I asked him to send cash by Xoom and its been more than 8 days (after I said him to do it via xoom) and every time I contact him, he says - "I am going to go get it in the ATM, then it is ready within 20-30 mins"; "Probably before the night is over here"; "ask me in 2 hours" or "i will do it in 1 hour" and so on! Now what I want is my cash! It's been 25 days and I can't take it anymore!
    I still guess that he is a nice person but 22 days is a long time to send cash. Here is the proof of my 550$ payment -

    Now these are our chats (important ones) - (these pics have been taken many days ago when I thought to shit list him but decided to wait.
    This is the chat we had 16 days ago -

    I was only left with this option, I wanted to get it fixed without this but nothing worked for me.

    I'm thinking that times are rough for him right now and hopefully he isn't what OP says and makes good on his obligations. Seems like their are some people counting on him. Maybe he can jump on and comment.

    I think everyone should wait for Spud to get back in a few hours before this gets out of hand. Wait for him to respond.
    It's not cool to get scammed but it is also not cool to stop up someone else's business by killing their reputation.
    So I suggest everyone take a min, cool off, and wait for his response.

    On 25 feb., nothing was solved! And now i am even ready to get refund at paypal and he isnt sending that also! I was just talking to him about withdrawal system and he himself said that he can easily help me! He also havbe to pay me for the work i did. All i have is $40+$25=$65 which he sent me as a bait.

    If you don't want your reputation talked about in a negative light, then you need to go above and beyond for your customers. If you don't like it, then do not sell your services on this forum.

    We are all intelligent enough to figure out after 25 days that something is not on the up and up.

    I do business with people from this forum all of the time, and I WANT to know who is on the level at all times. It saves me and others a lot of headaches in the end.

    Footfall, I don't know why or how you are involved in this, but your best bet is to let the parties and the moderators handle it.

    You ought to speak for yourself. And I have business with both of these people. And there is definitely a lot more going on here than is being said. So as I said, I suggest that we wait to hear from both parties so super nubs don't start chiming in with stuff that has nothing to do with the situation.

    Sounds familiar to me. I paid him around 60 USD for CL-Posting. Now its months after that. He always said the ads are flagged and he will repost. But I didnt get one single visit from any post. So dont know.

    At some point i read its "now homeless"-Thread and treated the paid money as a donation...

    My lesson in that... always start with small payments to people you dont know...
