    I recently created a thread about Yelp listings scraping on Offline marketing section. Even though I was just querying the possibility of selling Yelp listings site, but I started getting Private messages from many users. User vBakardzhiev ( http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/788560-vbakardzhiev.html ) also contacted me for yelp listings. We decided upon the low rate of 3usd per 500 listings. But after I have gave him list of more than 6500 listings, he isn't paying me, so he owes me almost 33usd. He comes online, I PM him, but he never replies.

    Code:
    [2/12/2015 1:10:29 PM] me: Hello Viktor :)[2/12/2015 1:11:10 PM] me: Would yo like to see sample of my scraping work?
    [2/12/2015 1:11:34 PM] client: Yes please
    [2/12/2015 1:15:33 PM] *** me sent IMG_12022015_131533.png IMG_12022015_131533.png ***
    [2/12/2015 1:15:36 PM] me: See this
    [2/12/2015 1:15:58 PM] me: I can scrape yelp listing for just a specific niche or even specific area as well :)
    [2/12/2015 1:19:27 PM] client: all I need is nice/area/website
    [2/12/2015 1:20:06 PM] me: How much are you willing to pay for 100 businesses
    [2/12/2015 1:22:04 PM] client: i can manually scrape like 200 for an hour
    [2/12/2015 1:24:00 PM] client: since you are doing it with a tool i can't offer you more than 2/3$ for 500 busnessess
    [2/12/2015 1:24:36 PM] client: as those leads are not easily converted with a ratio of 1:300
    [2/12/2015 1:25:00 PM] me: You want businesses from all niches?
    [2/12/2015 1:25:19 PM] me: and Yelp USA?
    [2/12/2015 1:25:29 PM] client: no lets say lawyers
    [2/12/2015 1:25:30 PM] client: yes
    [2/12/2015 1:25:33 PM] client: usa only
    [2/12/2015 1:25:42 PM] me: From all areas of USA
    [2/12/2015 1:26:10 PM] client: it would be better if we are going to work together to be from a specific area so i can keep track on them
    [2/12/2015 1:26:18 PM] client: lets say hmm Chicago or california
    [2/12/2015 1:26:23 PM] client: LA
    [2/12/2015 1:26:29 PM] client: or some other big area
    [2/12/2015 1:28:06 PM] me: let me check how many listings are there
    [2/12/2015 1:28:17 PM] client: okay ill be right back
    [2/12/2015 1:41:42 PM] me: you dont need phone number and adress etc? just niche website and area like Los Angeles etc?
    [2/12/2015 1:47:29 PM] client: yes
    [2/12/2015 1:49:55 PM] me: Ok, I will first start from San Franciso. Is it Okay?
    [2/12/2015 1:56:42 PM] client: yeah sure
    [2/12/2015 1:56:54 PM] me: And first would do bankruptcy lawyers only, because you cant view businesses beyond 100 pages?
    [2/12/2015 1:57:21 PM] client: okay i need businesses with websites only
    [2/12/2015 1:57:36 PM] client: give me your paypal address i will send you 2$ to show you i am serious
    [2/12/2015 1:57:45 PM] client: and i need to go and do some work for a couple of hours
    [2/12/2015 1:57:54 PM] client: you can send me the results whenever you got them
    After that I continued sending him listings in parts and he said he was happy with the results. When it came to payment, I asked to send me payment using Freelancer, fiverr or PeopleperHour. I even sent him paypal email to pay 2 days ago but he hadnt sent me payment so far

    Code:
    [2/15/2015 8:36:17 PM] me: Can you pay me through odesk, freelancer or peoplperhour?[2/15/2015 8:36:26 PM] me: Do you have account on any of them
    [2/15/2015 8:39:45 PM] me: or even Skrill?
    [2/15/2015 8:40:28 PM] client: Ive only used freelancer in the past
    [2/15/2015 8:40:44 PM] client: So creating a new account there would be easier
    [2/15/2015 8:49:55 PM] me: Signed up for freelancer
    [2/15/2015 9:14:05 PM] me: please post a new project so that I can bid on it
    [2/15/2015 9:15:15 PM] me: I counted and total rows I have sent you so far, comes out to be little higher than 5500, count them for double check
    [2/18/2015 7:03:26 AM] me: Hello, are you there.
    [2/18/2015 12:26:30 PM] me: Why arent you replying?
    [2/18/2015 2:48:11 PM] me: Are you there?
    [2/18/2015 9:06:59 PM] me: Hey, you there?
    [2/18/2015 9:07:14 PM] me: Why arent you sending the payment?

    I have removed my own real name and his ones too for privacy.

    Unless the OP disputes the validity of the above statement, I am extending the waiting period to 2 weeks. I hope this will come to a happy ending.

    Yea, we have agreed on 2 weeks time. It would be wise to give 2 weeks time to vBakardzhiev.
