    Hello Guys and Gals,

    If You are a Freelancer then you should read this entire post very carefully

    So here is my story about Getafreelancer.com and Fucking GayPal. However my amount is not that big it is just $200 but it can be $10000 for you if you are a provider at GAF.

    Here is my another post where you can see what is the main case:-


    Here is the short Summary of the case:-

    Here I am explaining again. One shitty guy posted a project on GAF to make a VCC worth $100. I have placed a bid worth $200 there. The shitty guy selected me and paid me $200 via GAF.

    I have selected a VCC provider from BHW-> "chiky_cin" and paid him $100+ $43 (his VCC fee) via moneybookers. Now today morning my GAF account charged back of $200 bcz the shitty guys fund was shady.

    I hope you understand now.

    Now I am in communication with GAF support and I am publicly posting each and every communication between me and GAF support here it is:-

    dhpd22 [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Posted On: 09 Oct 2009 2:14 PM Hello Sir,

    I have provided VCC to this buyer and he has paid me from his GAF account. Why my account has been charge -200?

    Reversal of [Transfer from wuicko11 for project I Need Some VCC's Immediately (Full payment for completed project) from 10/08/2009 at 4:15 EDT]

    It is a big panic for me. Last year also I get a problem like that.

    Thanks, Dheeraj. [​IMG] dhpd22 [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Posted On: 09 Oct 2009 3:58 PM and please don't say that you can't help me. I have already lost $143. He asked for VCC and I provided it. I paid $143 from my pocket and now my account got charged back of $200 so I am in loss of $143.

    There is not any fault at my end. I believe that GAF is a robust system and there will be no such scams but I got scammed again. It is not my fault. Please help a poor guy.

    Help Me Help ME help ME. [​IMG] Manuel [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Posted On: 10 Oct 2009 3:02 AM Hello,

    We understand that if a reversal has been made by the Buyer through his payment gateway, all we can do is reverse this amount back. As before, we cannot help you retrieve your money. We have included this on our Terms of Service on 7.5 Chargebacks.
    Kind regards,
    GAF Support [​IMG] dhpd22 [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Posted On: 10 Oct 2009 1:43 PM Hello Support,

    I did the work and paid from my pocket. It is not fair. It is a complete failure of your system and I need to pay for that.

    How buyer can request a reversal? I have awarded many projects to employees can I get my money back? NO!

    Please help me to remunerate this money. I am already in loss of $143. You are very helpful peoples and $143 is not worth for you. Either please make my gold membership Free for 1 Year or please refund my $143 to my GAF account.

    Thanks, Dheeraj. [​IMG] Manuel [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Posted On: 11 Oct 2009 3:54 AM Hello,

    All payments made and received are not insured. We have updated our Terms of Service that explains why we reverse payments. We just act as a freelancer platform not as a guarantor for payments and other transactions between Service Buyers and Service Providers.
    Kind regards,
    GAF Support [​IMG] dhpd22 [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Posted On: 11 Oct 2009 1:14 PM Hello,

    The rule there is not clear and I can't understand how a buyer can reverse the payment? It is a pure case of scam with me. It seems someone hacked someones paypal and I need to pay for that.

    Please help me. You people were very helping but don't know why now we providers didn't get any help regarding such issues.

    Even your 7.5 rules didn't describes clearly. GAF charges $12 each month why we are paying these fees? if GAF can't offer us robust payment gateway?

    This is really very embarrassing for me. Please at least you can help your community member as a person to give me 1 Year Gold membership free to cover my loss.

    I hope you ll do it.

    Thanks, Dheeraj. [​IMG] Manuel [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Posted On: 11 Oct 2009 8:26 PM Hello,

    His account was not hacked, he disputed his deposit to PayPal directly. If a PayPal account owner will file a dispute to PayPal and wants his funds to be recovered we cannot do anything about it since it is PayPal who transferred the funds to GAF and since we only act as a venue for freelancers, the money deposited can also be claimed back by PayPal should the depositor require it.
    Kind regards,
    GAF Support [​IMG] dhpd22 [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Posted On: 11 Oct 2009 8:39 PM Hello Support,

    So it means every buyer who submit their funds via Pyapal can claim and charge back any amount. Do you people understand what it ll be going to effect to freelancers?

    You know what happened in this case? If the original buyer has charged back then why he ripped me off by $143 to provide him a Virtual Credit Card? I provided him VCC worth of $143.

    Does it seems fair to you? I provided him paid moeny from my pocket to provide him VCC and then he just simply charged back his account and now I am ripped off..... it is that simple?

    Is there no way that you people can contact paypal and provide them the truth about this transaction? I have all the proofs where he spend that money or VCC.

    I want you to either fire a case on Paypal to claim the money which I have lost or tell me the original users email address..

    Ok tell one more thing why you people reverted and deleted the reviews provided by me and by the buyer itself?

    I have the link of the project. which is hxxp://ww.getafreelancer.com/projects/523838.html

    The project # 523838. Why you deleted this from the listings? Don't you want to help your providers? We work very hard and if someone ripped off like that how we will manage to work with GAF?

    I need your help with this case. You can't just get rid of it by forcing me or providing not clear reasons about it.

    Can I do the same? [​IMG] Manuel [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Posted On: 11 Oct 2009 9:02 PM Hello,

    As we've said, there are no insurance for all transactions, also our GAF has Limitation of Liabilities to all our members. This is also included in our Terms of Service. Please understand that not all members are not as honest and reliable as you are, we as a company also suffer loss from chargebacks from these fraudulent member activities. Both of us has lost in this matter. Please try to be more careful the next time you engage a Buyer or a Provider.

    You can also file a case to PayPal directly since you have all the proof that you will need for your payment claims, PayPal will consider our dispute as irrelevant since we are not your legal adviser nor act as your lawyer or guarantor. It would be best if you will complain to them directly.
    Kind regards,
    GAF Support [​IMG] dhpd22 [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Posted On: 11 Oct 2009 9:11 PM I appreciate your help about this issue. and I can say you people are still helpful and honest for your providers. I agree you are not my lawyer but still how wold I claim Paypal about this transaction?

    As I don't even know his Paypal ID.. I don't know his Original email ID. bcz he used some spam mail ID at hxxp://ww.mailinator.com/. (I suggest you to please black list this email ID. If someone want to signup then you should block him)

    I want you to provide me his Paypal ID as you have it in your records+ the paypal transaction ID for this amount. So I can claim to paypal about this case.

    I know you can't ruin your relations with paypal for just my case. and even I know there are many providers who suffered this earlier. But believe it ll going to harm your company on a long go.

    Please provide me all the details so I can directly fire a case to paypal about it.

    Thanks, Dheeraj.

    PS: Hello mods of BHW I am just helping freelancers who are working on GAF and it is really a very big issue for every freelancer. So If I am doing something wrong please do let me know before a ban.

    That's pretty sad man.
    Did you get a reply? I don't know why GAF can't provide you with his sign up e-mail address or other details he would have entered while registering? I know it might affect their privacy policy but then something has to be done about this. When they know he is a scammer, they should kick him off the community.
