    i been promised for an order with a timeline,timeline has surpassed. contract was breached including total etc which was all finalized. he said he will be sending file. everyday he had an excuse,yesterday he said his comp was lagging as he couldnt upload. made me wait 5 hrs to upload 100mb which is absurd. Then promised me everything today again and has now vanished. Im making this thread as i noticed he is responding to more "hire for freelancer" threads and i dont want a fellow member to lose money. I have all history of logs from the PM's and from skype. his skype ID is the same as username "uniquewebdesigns" . Im not sure what to do as he ignores me when i msg PM's. He doesnt respond on skype,please mods or admins help me out. I can post all info of agreeement. I was wondering if i could somehow cancel payment via paypal?as i just paid him yesterday. not sure if theres a cancelation period. Hope no one else gets burnt like i did. losing 400$ while working a regular is a lot,i know its not much for a lot of you guys in your successful business but it sure as hell pinched me :(

    Just file a case in paypal for a refund.
    Paypal surely help you to get your money.
    Do it ASAP before if he cashout if you sure he is scamming.
    In b/w you can also try to contact him.

    Ok,

    1) You need to post the details and screenshots on here. When you open a SL thread, you need to post proof to show you have reason to trash someone's reputation. Now when I posted mine, I smudged over details like full name and email addy - that's up to you, but definitely leave out really personal stuff (ssn, address, phone #, family members... etc) if they happened to have mentioned any of that or you've researched it.

    2) Link their profile on here along with the details and a BST thread if that's were this started.

    3) Paypal gives you a window of 30 days to dispute an action - I thought that even if you had paid via Gift, that you could still dispute it, but you appear to be saying that it's not letting you?

    In either case, put the details on here and hopefully uniquewebdesigns will be pushed into responding to you.

    Good luck!
    OS

    technically they dont open case when personal transaction, a fellow BHW member (kambhai) has helped me and guided me to call and plead and they mite listen. Bless his soul because they did,they have given 10 days for him to respond or i will be refunded. I will update as it goes along. Below are both cases that are opened by paypal today. Hope i can get some assistance from fellow BHW family. you guys are super nice

    Where did you find this web designer? Did he/she posted here in BHW? If so, he/she has an username. I was scammed too from someone but from BHT forum. I thought that if he has a good reputation there then I can trust and so on and I've stransfered $600 with paypal. But, we have diceded about a 3 months job, so that after 3 months there's no more refund from paypal. So, I've decided that from now on, I will always have all the print screend of the deal, I won't pay in advance for a deal that will be for more than 45 days and I won't pay personal so that I'll have the refund as an option. Because I do order a lot from the internet and have been since twice in paypal trial and I got my money back. Be careful, know the rules and it will be fine. And beeing scammed is a part of the game I assume :)

    Always dont pay full money .first pay 30%-40% and after delivering the work ,pay entire amount you owe him.If he asks to pay full money then use escrow.

    yes, i have learned the hard way mate. thanks for sharing the input though. the thread was mainly to protect other members s they dont end up losing like i did. i considered mine a lost cause but kambhai helped and paypal felt sorry for me and opened the dispute. guess there are angels out there helping ppl out.
