    Aren't pretty much all those traffic sellers either automated clicks or other similar junk? Doubt there is anything real about any of them.

    Yeah let me add this, don't buy traffic from anyone with paypal. If you get ripped, they will not issue a refund for a such a transaction.

    The money I lost is nothing to be upset about. But if this is happening to as many people as are posting in the sales thread, who have no recourse after being ripped off, scammers like this can make a fortune!

    That part is upsetting.

    Sorry I think we have some miss understanding, you are a liar and a scam artist,

    You buy a service off me which Is done by a affiliate of mine, you use the serive experience the traffic which comes from opt in lists on various sites not fake traffic liek you ahve claimed then 2 months later put in a complaint with pay pal.

    refer to the thread:

    http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=158413

    for a full explanation of this guys dodgey business,

    De didn't even bother to email me about this problem he is claiming to have.

    re fund has been sent,

    This is its only 22 dollars some people, this service is done by a affiliate of mine, its a email sent via a opt in list people need to under stand when advertising certian sites to demographics they need to understand if you advertise something that does not fit in with the demographic then you will not achieve good resuls, I hope karma catches up on this greedy person, who has experienced my traffic now he wants a re fund,

    how is this email he just sent me...

    [​IMG]

    Personally I dont have time for these childish games over 20 dollas I am a business man who has better things to deal with, and clients to keep happy.

    have a good day.

    [​IMG]

    thank you........

    Listen, You advertised an email service which would mean humans clicking. Instead I got 100% virtual traffic. Not human traffic.

    Furthermore, I think the folks here know I'm not a liar. As far as being a scammer, I sent you $22.00 for a $20.00 service. How many scammers do that? I have purchased services from others here and done the same thing, paid to cover the service charges. That does not equate to a scammer.

    Here is where the so called traffic you sent me came from...

    http: //www. hollywood-mail. com/
    http: //www. ice-mails.net /
    http: //www. bondjamesbond. net /
    http: //www. cashpointclicks. com/
    http: //www. emailpremium. com/
    http: //www. smile-email. com/
    http: //www. gladiator. ws/
    http: //www. apachemails. com/
    http: //www. getpaidbyemail. com/
    http: //www. super-program. com/
    http: //www. spidermanemails. com/
    http: //www. hellotomy. com/
    http: //www. goldenemail. com/
    http: //www. emailprofit. us/
    http: //www. platinum-mails. com/
    http: //www. southmails. com/
    http: //www. tango-mambo. com/
    http: //www. emailspayu. net/
    http: // gladiator. ws/1

    Every one of those sites advertise virtual traffic. All my traffic was reffered by those sites, not unique IPs of computers operated by humans. You claimed the traffic would come from humans clicking emails and that did not happen.

    This is about principle for me. It's obvious to everyone here that knows me who and what I am. I seriously doubt you will find one person here that will label me a scammer. I do more free work for nice folks daily then you've done in your life.

    You are the scammer and you will be seen for what you are. That being the case, the $22.00 I spent to expose you is well worth it.

    Buyer beware of this "connection".

    Connections you are digging yourself a deeper hole. Look at those referral URL's man, it's all crap traffic. I am sure noppid wouldn't dispute a $20 transaction over nothing. Also why does optin list traffic have to only be a teenage demographic?

    I did this advertising for this guy over 2 months ago yet he has only decided to compalin today. I dont know why it took him soo long to send the complaint.

    This advertising is done via a affiliate of mine and I have tested it myself it worked good, Althought will I be dealing with this affiliate any more......... no I will not be dealing with him,

    I don't think I deserve all these anti- threads, re funds have been given and this should stop,

    I am not a scammer or a dodgey person, I think its MORE then unfair to lable me this way.

    I have never ripped any one off in my life and I never will,

    another good idea would be to send me a PM before starting a massive ANTI-connectiosn thread and email campaigh liek noopid has done,

    I would have been more then likely to offer a settlement via pm.

    thank you.

    They're all paid to read sites where people get paid to click on links.

    What exactly did you expect for $20?

    He paid 22 dollars for a email to 160 000 people via all these sites,

    This deal was ran via an affiliate of mine who gave me all the info on the demographics, he said it was 100% genuine traffic yet obviously he has lied to me even thoguht this affiliate has a pay pal with like (4000+) feedback.

    I tested the offer on my personal site first before selling it on DP and it worked fine traffic stats were good.

    This noopid guy left it for 2 months before sending me a complaint via paypal he never tried to contact me via digital point, a full re fund was issued BY MYSELF, I should not even have given it to the guy after the way he has treated me, he recieved the traffic + the re fund.

    I have lost out big time on this deal I had to pay the affiliate + pay for the re fund + lost fees + I am loosing out on sales, look at this pm I just recieved:

    I dont even sell these emails any more I havnt sold one in ages, I am a trust worthy seller check my I-trader!.

    Personally I don't know what this noopid guys problem is the personal attacks keep happening the spammer reports keep goign on when I ahve done nothing wrong I have lost money here and I am not happy.

    Karma will catch up on this noopid guy I hope.

    I just checked one of those sites and it says:

    That doesn't look like virtual traffic.

    PayPal doesn't allow you to dispute a transaction after 45 days. There are 60+ days in two months. Exaggeration won't help the situation.

    I'm not taking sides, just being devils advocate.

    Noppid, did you contact the seller prior to trying to get your money back from Paypal or did you just go for the chargeback or what?

    No... but you get what you pay for, someone promising several thousand visitors for a couple bucks probably is going to be junk. While you can pay 20 cents per click for targetted traffic from second or third tier traffic seller.

    Personally, noppid is in the wrong here. He decides after 2 months to try and bring connections down.

    Connections has a good soul, and gave him a FULL REFUND, and yet he complains?

    He got the full product, and his MONEY BACK!
