    Monero is another way to purchase anonymously, or you can tumble your bitcoins

    Is scamming on this forum common? A user offered me services, but was not willing to work upfront or use any kind of escrow services, and wanted 50% upfront in bitcoins.

    Scamming is not limited to this forum, it's literally everywhere.

    If a seller insists on payments via BTC or bank transfer etc then just walk away. You will have absolutely no comeback if they scam you.

    It was not on the forum, we switched to Jabber really quick. How are the trades normally done on here, is the freelancer willing to work upfront and show me some results for a payment, or will he deliver first traffic without payment so we can see he is legit?
    I offered him multiple options like a part from our profits, part payment the day the first traffic comes in, escrow on a different forum, but he insisted on 50% first, because setting up the campagnes has a cost itself.
    He said he is legit because he has an neteller gold account.
    I wanted to get some of the users he worked with on the forum but at the end and I got nothing.

    I mean report whatever interaction you did have on the forum. Or just report the users profile - if they are not a premium member then its against the rules for them to be selling and it also makes it far more likely that you will get scammed. If you need any more help or advice feel free to drop me a PM rather than starting a long conversation in this thread.

    if there name is YELLOW - they can not sell on bhw
    and if a yellow name pms you trying to sell something to you
    just report them and ignore them, a high % of non payed not approved
    users will try and part you with your money and run.
    so avoid offers of anything to buy from a YELLOW name user.

    DO NOT BUY FROM ANYONE OFFERING A SERVICE WITH PM --- This is a GOLDEN RULE.

    You will get burnt, trust me!

    Also, do not accept to review services for anyone. They will give you the service alright but remove your links once you must have placed a review. These scums are everywhere.

    This isn't the right place to be asking that. You could try reading through the Business and Tax Advice section or posting a thread there instead: https://www.blackhatworld.com/forums/business-tax-advice.96/

    Thanks for heads up. And big but. Bitcoin buy is pretty much final. Have read that it is near impossible to get refund.

    SL stands for Shit List, which is a section over here for buyers and sellers to resolve disputes under moderation.
