    IMO, the trust flow (TF) should be much closer to the CF, as closer to being the 1:1 ratio... Anyway, let someone more efficient say it's as bad as you think (or even lot worse than that).

    If you've lost so many things, why think about whether opening a shitlist thread will cause any further bigger loss? Try it, you might just be surprised and may still get that up to 100% refund. If you've felt unduly cheated by a member, and have sufficient proofs of it like the chat history and payment proof, and if he has been avoiding you, and if the service is dud, defunct, deficient, much delayed or denied, or definitely not as promised, etc., then go ahead and open the thread. Good luck!

    When I review, I check to make sure the provided service matches the claims the seller makes in their original post. I don't make any judgements on the suitability of the service but it has to be accurately described so the buyer can make an informed decision.

    If the thread promises specific metrics and these don't match up to that, the seller needs to step up and either make it good or give you your money back. "No refunds" only counts if they delivered the promised service but for whatever reason the buyer changed their mind.

    We want good sellers with services that can be trusted by members, so don't just let it slide. It's important to give the seller every chance to resolve the situation or to make sure there's no miscommunications, so you should PM them first, state what the problem is and tell them how you expect them to resolve it. Just make sure to keep it reasonable, calm and professional.

    If they've enough time to reply or resolve the issue (3 days is a good rule of thumb) and you've been reasonable throughout, then please take it here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/shit-list/499995-shitlist-rules-procedure.html

    Basically, there will always be mistakes due to misunderstandings / language issues / lack of experience and sometimes, shit just happens. Going through it like this means the other person is given a reasonable chance to sort it out or even to explain. If they have no interest in resolving it, we don't want them on the forum.

    I would first contact the seller, if he isn't willing to help then file for a SL. OldSalt is great at taking care of this kind of problems :)
