    You will see many threads where a owner mysteriously has a fan page of 1 Million and has NO CLUE AT ALL on how to monetise it.
    He also conveniently cant accept paypal.
    Like this-Link may go dead if thread is deleted.

    Note how he asks to be added on skype.
    Work Smart is the "scammer"
    I hate scammers. They make my blood boil. You have earnt your money with hard work and these lazy asses want to rob you of it.
    Western Union- BIG RED FLAG
    Funny thing is WTH is a MEDICAL DOCTOR doing with facebook fanpages and last I heard facebook doesnt give out fan pages.
    Just warning you guys. Do due diligence.

    If he was a " medical doctor " he doesn't need to sell facebook pages.

    The whole thing looked shady from the start.

    Good work OP on pointing this out! Rep + Thanks!

    Even if they accept paypal as payment, it is worthless :S
    I have been scammed with paypal too, and even that I disputed and done everything that Paypal requires to get your money back, I didn't win.
    The answer was smth like this: "We are sorry but we don't offer Buyer Protection for items that are not tangible".
    They didn't accept to see my screen recording files that I had captured all the time when I was making the deal with the seller, and there were tons of evidence that proved that I was scammed.
    So the best way to buy FB fan pages is face to face or through Escrow, even that I didn't try Escrow for this kind of service till now.

    The only safe way would be to meet face to face/sign a legal document and run the payment through escrow.

    Personally, the facebook page buying/selling game is too risky and creates too many problems to be worth the hassle. The best piece of advice would be to steer well clear.

    Be safe guys.

    Cheers.

    Met him on skype today - different story, but it was obviously a scammer...
    Then I looked up his skype on here (he just posted yesterday) to warn others and found this thread...
