    I posted awhile back that I was needing Wikipedia accounts, particularly an admin account for a project. Got PM'd by YoungLive who claimed to have one. He wanted $225 for it, and said he had other admin accounts that had "less access". I thought this was bizarre, since there are no tiered admin accounts like this on Wikipedia (other than bureaucrat accounts, which are highly rare.) I played dumb, strung him along for awhile, and asked him to make a post on Wikipedia with this account so that I could check it out before buying. I asked him to make a post on Peachtree Baptist Church (Atlanta), a Wikipedia page. I'll provide a link, happily, if an admin here wants to bump up my powers. Anyway, feel free to check out the edit history on that wikipedia page. The account he used is iheartgo, which has a total of 4 edits. Not an admin, barely even a user. When I called him out, he pretended to have accidentally been logged into the wrong account. When I told him to log into the correct account and make an edit, he refused, but had the audacity to come back with a lower price:$200. What a bargain. I've looked at YoungLive's posting history and it's full of promises to others about amazing services he offers, and of course savvy users are skeptical of his claims. I've never found one instance where he has delivered anything of value to anyone. Maybe the dude is just an idiot, maybe he's a scammer. Figured I'd warn everyone, in case. Look into him and make him prove his claims first.

    Now, before anyone posts on here that he should move this to the Shitlist, let me tell you why not:

    This wasn't a completed transaction and it's impossible to say for sure what his motives were - so I recommended he post it here. This way he can post it publicly and if YoungLive wants to, he can counter with his side, but this isn't a SL.

    OS
    PS. belal, then I expect you to put a SL in rather than just post that here. Make sure you post proof of your accusation but remove the personal info from the logs/screenshots etc.

    Its good though that you caught it beforehand and then did some research into the users history to try and see what the user was really about. Although I agree with the mod that it really isn't a case yet because no money was actually lost, it is just as good that you brought to everyone's attention just in case.

    He'll probably try and bill you anyway.
