    after that i send him some emails asking him questions like how much the fees and what is the price for a guy from algeria .

    i asked him for a testimonials also knowing that he mentioned its in his 1st message " testimenials upon request "

    [​IMG]

    he told that the price of my case is $169 for us bank + master card . i asked him for a visa card , he said that i had to add $15 , i accepted. $169 + $15 = $184 .

    anyway in that time i wasn't had that amount of money , i got $123 , i suggest to him to start my application by giving him $123 till i give him the rest asap , he accepted my suggestion .

    here is the 1st proof : the date 20 aug 2010

    [​IMG]


    the 2nd 22 aug 2010

    [​IMG]


    the final one also 22 aug 2010

    [​IMG]


    to do the math ; 123+35.5+25.5 = $184 :(

    we remained in contact for about 1 month untill sep ,when i received a message telling me that he got opened me successfully an account after a great efforts and 2 refuses of two banks 'cause i'm from arabic talking countries . i was contacting him about once a week to check my process.
    he told me there that he would let me know when he receive my package in his office in germany to forward it to me .

    in all cases we say from about the middle of sep and the package didn't reach him ? even to the moon would to be there for not more than a month .

    he stopped repliying my emails since 7 october .also i tried to send fax to him but noway . that period is about 45 day .that's really weird .

    I'm not here to accuse any one , but we have to be logical , 45 days + about 2 months before means more than 100 day since our first contact.

    Marc buddy just to let ya know , if yo scammed me , that was against a poor student alger14n who stills dreaming of us bank account and $184 means to him a lot since he is jobless 23 year person .


    in the end , i would prefer to tell everyone who can help me reach him to know what's there (especially his friends from germany) , maybe something bad happend to him who knows .

    thank you so much

    Not being funny, but why on earth would you trust someone on a BH forum to open a US bank account for a few hundred bucks?

    There are some things that really should be left to the experts, bank accounts being one of them.

    Hey man.If you want US bank account,then you should try PAYONEER master card.A payoneer card holder can easily get a virtual US bank account.

    Hey chouchouboys
    Sorry to hear about what happen to you , i was there too struggling to get my US bank account but i keep rejected by some banks because im from Tunisia till i got one from payoneer.
    Its very easy , just register on scriptlance , apply for a payoneer card (They will send you a mastercard) , then you need 3 or 4 transfer to your payoneer card (you can work on any tiny job on scriptlance ) so you build a little trust with payoneer , then send a PM to Allan in the payoneer forum , he's a very nice guy and he can help you.
    Note that t get a card from payoneer you need to apply through one of their partner , you cant do that directly on payoneer.com (you can find a list of their partners on their website)
    Wish you the best luck

    hello bro :

    thank you for your reply .
    actually i got two payoneers credit cards , trafficholder and odesk .
    i have a friend of mine working with ogesk as a freelancer ,who received more than 3 payments during about 6 months .he asked for a virtual us bank account to be attached with his card but they refused and saying that he isn't qualified to obtain this service .

    anyway may i come back to payoneer and see . guys if you have any ideas on how to receive 3 payments without working such a trick of charging my account and withdraw that to my card or so .

    Hi

    I am a provider of a special card which serves as a US Bank acct, so I am sad when Scums / Fools come into the business and mess things up because this makes everyone look bad.

    I really sympathize with you over being scammed by another person. That was too bad and I expect you to immediately contact the payment processor that you paid through (looks like it was through Alert pay) and ask for a refund. Open a dispute there. They can help. They can do a charge-back to the guy's account and return the money to you. I am a verified merchant who accepts CC/DC payments via Alert pay, so I know.
    Just go ahead and try.

    I sell my card and I have a way I let the buyers and their funds to be secured. If they do not get card in 3-4 weeks, they are free to take back their money.

    Send me a PM if interested.

    regards

    Chouchouboys
    I have responded to your email.

    hi hamlak :

    thank you so much for your reply .

    i already know about your service . if it is real and effective as you said why ppl don't talk too much about it that it's a great solution .

    anyway , may i will give you a shot since you accept pp , like that i can do a refund after 3-4 weeks or so .

    but ppl , in that case i think there are some things still tricky , like you buddy you can use a services like paymate or plimus to receive pp .

    if not , why didn't you put your pp button ? , i see only your pp email.

    do these and its similar support refund ?.

    anyway buddy i'm not accusing you of anything , sorry i remain under shock .

    thanks .

    Various legislation has been introduced over the years making accounts for overseas foreigners nearly impossible.
    I am an American living overseas and I wasn't able to setup am account without doing it in person when I went back to visit.

    There are a few trader accounts out there but getting one through a recognised bank is not going to happen unfortunately.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong.
    This would be a HUGE money earner if it were possible.

    hi oxgman :

    thank you for your reply .

    yes it's nearly impossible especially for those who want a us bank account with all features like wire and checks book ...

    actually , we are such a foreigners can open one , if we get the right resources , but it will be with very limited features as using ach in usa, ,purchasing , link the visa card to some e-banks like alertpay, moneybooker...

    if so , this will be a quiet enough for me.may i will give hamlak service a shot and see .

    again , thank you so much .

    Hi Thanks. I am happy you say you already know about our service. But you say we are not popular or ppl do not talk about us in the forums. well our customers are not the forum type. we get them via Google. we also do not frequent the forums.

    Most of our customers comes from referrals - satisfied customers telling their friends.

    you say there are things tricky about us like we do not use a service like plimus or paymate. We are free to use any service that we like. We have used Plimus in the past. why should we use a service that will hold our money for a month when we can have paypal receieve and pay us same day? I hope you are an enterpreneur and understand what difference this makes to an organization.

    whether we put a paypal button or use the pp address, what difference does this make? Maybe there is something we do not know on this.

    Like I told you, we are very selective of the people we deal with. If you for a minute has any doubt about us, please do not do anything with us. We like to deal with people who already know us through our former customers.

    hi hamlak :
    thank you for your reply.
    yes i know your service since about 2-3 months because i found your site link everywhere when i was searching .good thing i think, isn't it ?:)

    i talked about plimus and paymate with an accent of not sure person.read again to understand .
    'cause i doubt that those don't have refund feature.
    believe me , to see alertpay button , and don't see pp button that let me think that there is something isn't normal .but after thinking i found it normale . LOL.
    anyway buddy , i said before i'm not accusing you but i was need to understand many things to do my step .and i have all the right in that .
    now i know many things about you and your service which seems great by now .wish we will establish a solid business relationship.
    will try many things till i get what i want .

    hamlak , be well we are discuss not anything else .:rolleyes:

    wish you good luck .;)

    your kidding me right ?

    you know payment processors are not opening a bank account for you - they are creating a sub account under their account - and representing you to the bank ... this type of stuff is checked these days it did not used to be.

    so if you find one willing to do that for you great - but make no mistake that is not a US Bank Account.

    Your country is high risk and requires 2 officers to sign off on it - and right now with Fed audits etc - there is no chance for you to be approved for a USA Bank Account.

    You cant even sell a needle on here without getting approved by mods and having a thread on bst section. You will get banned for it.

    For anyone who is looking for a us bank account should stop dreaming. It is impossible to open one unless you physically go to the bank by yourself. Anyone who claims they can open are scammers, period. Credit cards is another scam because there is no way any financial instutition will give you a credit card without an ssn. Even if you had an ssn it would not mean that you could get a credit card since you need a credit history.

    The only way that you can get a virtual bank account is to apply for a prepaid debit card like netspend or account now. So stop dreaming about it. You got scammed already and still being naive about it. If there's anyone who can open a us bank account, that's you and that is only possible if you fly over here. Some banks like Boa will open you a checking account as long as you walk in to any branch with a valid passport. That's it.
