    hi.

    can DP ban a member and all of its IP for scammer? What if I have proofs that he indeed scammed me, running away without paying?

    Can someone help me on this?

    Tnx

    If there's solid proof, the scammer usually gets banned.

    Thanks! will wait for another 2 days... anyways, I have all the evidences in case he runs away...

    also could it be possible of banning his IP address as well, I have spent so much time on the project with all the pressures and now, all I'm getting is this...

    How do I report him then?

    If it's a post/thread - [​IMG]

    If it's a PM - [​IMG]

    If it's something else - http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showgroups.php

    It's possible but it probably won't happen. You need to be careful when banning IPs. If you ban one, you could ban a million.

    No offense butchik , but usually people asked and hope for this are scammers.

    They wanted the buyer/seller to fall into the trap , and then to prevent the buyer/seller to report him , so he request a IP ban or some way to make sure the buyer/seller could not report him.

    Good point.

    The main reason why I want him banned (including his IP) because as of now, I feel hurt, he kept on pressuring me on finishing the project, then after I submitted the report, he seems to give me reasons... lame excuses...

    I just worked so hard and then this... I really really hate him... but I am recomposing myself to give him enough time before actually reporting him.

    Tnx a lot for the help guys. +rep added to all.

    remember the moment you name him you'll get an infraction yourself.
    if you take on work then ask for 50% of the payment up front, that way you only loose half of any payment if they are not happy or do a runner.

    i see you have made a nice rep with itreader, Feedback Score:

    gives you some green x
