    Hello,

    A few weeks ago I posted a thread here on blackhatworld that I needed a coder. I briefly described what I needed and I got a handful of PMs. One of those was from ThanksToYou.

    I added him on skype, described again what I needed and he agreed to take the job. We both agreed on the following payment schedule:
    - $100 up-front
    - $400 after he provides me the code and allows me to test it for 24
    - $350 on the 20th of June.

    His paypal e-mail address is marketingtheworld2012@gmail.com and his real name is Nelson Alvitres Maquin and his skype id is google.play1 although being the noob that he is he thinks he owns Google.Play.1 but he is mistaken. Here are a few skype convos that we've had, I blanked by name:

    - The agreement:

    - Up-front fee is confirmed:

    - He managed to do one small task that only took 3 seconds to make (added a html attribute in an iframe code). Although we had a clear agreement, he demands more money:

    - Once again, he's almost begging me for an extra $50 ... pathetic!

    - Again, he changes his mind. We initially agreed that he shall be paid $400 after I get to test the code for 24 hours.

    - Since I had no way of backing up due to him not respecting our agreement, I took another risk and sent $155 (including fees) so I can get the code. After he checks his paypal account he tells me something in the terms of "wait, there's something I need to fix about your code". He doesn't send the code:

    - Let's recap. So far I sent this son of a b**** $255 and only received a fu**** html attribute. It's like the third time he doesn't respect our initial agreement and once again, charges more money:

    - When I show him a screenshot of our skype convo that mentions our agreement he told me that it's not like we signed a contract. This piece of shit drove me nuts.

    - Finally I convince him to show me at least a demo first. Guess what, the demo he provided was absolute crap, totally unrelated to what I requested.

    A few days pass, he basically doesn't provide anything else. Sometimes I get to talk with his outsourced indians who can't even spell "ENGLISH" as a word so of course they wouldn't understand me. After a while I also get to talk with what I think is - his partner, Jason. (Yes, multiple people are using Nelson's skype account). He basically agreed that Nelson did a terrible job, but assured me that he will do it better instead. Once again he demands (Jason) more money from me although I told him I already paid $255 and received nothing basically so I won't make another payment. Once he was je can't get another dime for me he failed to respond anymore and I think also blocked me on skype.

    I have more screenshots to back what I'm saying here, I just don't have the time to post them all.

    I called paypal and I worked out the case with them and my bank so I eventually got my money back. Unfortunately I lost so much time with this pathetic scum and I want to warn others not to do any kind of business with Nelson Alvitres Maquin. I wouldn't even sell him a bottle of Gatorade if you were to ask me.

    Proof of me trying to get a hold of these guys:

    Message to Nelson Alvitres Maquin: You better check your fucking paypal account if you haven't already. It's gooooone baby, gooooone, limited as hell! You should be ashamed of yourself and for losing my time. Good think you didn't get to keep my money though.

    Message for the moderators: I apologize in advance for talking like this here and there but this guy literally lost a week of my time, nerves and potentially some money which I finally managed to get back though.

    Shall we get this sucker banned? It's been more than a week since the thread was made and I see he logged in 2 days ago.
