    Wow, too many scammers lately.

    What's the background of your story? What's the deal thread url?

    Thanks for sharing the info, the guy is online, and i think he should get to this thread for explaining the real situation/defend himself.

    These things do happens, i got scammed several itmes, but luckily last week i got a charge back through Paypal and i saved my $ 300. Its the only time i got my money back. So got for Paypal, before its too late.

    Haha, what an idiot.
    I have also been scammed on DP when I bought an eBook that told me to make money from 000webhost's affiliate program (what a joke..).
    I didn't get my money back and the seller left me a negative reputation for busting him.

    Lately? DP has been like this since the stone age due to them allowing blackhat to be in the forum.

    It's not only the blackhatters that scam people.
    Programmers, designers and other ebook sellers are pretty common as well.
    Mostly the scammers just sell stolen/copied/out-dated crap.

    blackhatters dont need to scam the people.they are busy in their own stuff.they dont make peanuts .may be newbies and real scammers want to take advantages of buyers and sellers here.the admin should make compulsory that every member should be premium member or they must be allowed to go under verification.

    I got involved with a scammer also that was paying me with a stolen Paypal account, of course after a few days the real owner just made a complaint. Dangerous business here!

    What happens when somebody gives you an unfair negative feedback score? I'm pretty much a newbie here, but I have already picked up a few clients. I paid somebody to help with some work and the result was completely crap. I'm asking for a refund and I have not heard from them. I want to give them a negative score but I'm afraid they will do the same just for "payback". What to do?

    There's always a risk of getting a negative feedback from them as payback.
    Best thing is always to contact the company you used to complete they payment with, such as PayPal
    and start a dispute in order to get the money back. If you want to go even further you could probably report him
    to the admins of DP as well.

    Best thing you can do is send me his details and I'll contact da hackerzz.

    Do leave him a negative feedback then contact the staff to hide the deal thread and he won't be able to do the same. :)

    That is a great statement...
    Every member should be verified before they are able to post on the buy/sale/trade sections to avoid a lot scam from both sides (buyer/seller).

    I'm pretty weary now of buying anything from dp members. I'm sure they've been scamming since it started
