    hey guys....

    posted some job thingie in the forums a couple of months ago.... needed some programming work.

    guy replied.

    we talked, he said he could do it.

    sent a paypal for $40 for it.

    The guy fell off the face of the planet. Tracked him down and gave me some lame bs answer.... it'll get done, had computer issues or something.

    i emailed the dude... nothing.

    PM'ed him here last week, he finally replies saying he can do the work right away and get him the details.

    WTF? are you for real? I had someone else do the work cuz the guy fell off the face of the planet.

    Told him I wanted the $40 refunded.

    The guy hasn't replied since. (of course)

    I have all the emails and PM's saved.

    suggestions?

    I moved this thread to the "Shit List" section.

    - Send him an email and/or PM and tell him that if
    he does not resolve this issue amicably, he will be
    hearing from a BHW staff member.

    - Give him 24 hours to respond. If you do not hear
    from him within that time frame, send me all details.
    Include his email, BHW user name, and transcripts of
    any relative communication you have had with him.
    I will then approach him with an ultimatum.

    NOTE: It is always best to deal with reputable
    members of BHW who have a decent iTrader
    rating and have been around for awhile. That
    doesn't necessarily mean that you are guaranteed
    anything, but you are more likely to have a better
    outcome if you do business with reputable members.

    Cheers! - "Wiz"
