    Report to Paypal, send them all the details including the conversation between you and him if you communicate via email or DP PM. If you don't have any proof, unfortunately you most likely won't get the money back.

    I think you're out of luck here. Now you've cancelled your Paypal dispute then I'm pretty sure that you can't now re-open it. Sorry to hear about this.

    Why am I doing this?
    Hi everyone out there!

    First I would like to tell you and the moderators why I am creating this thread:
    Information about Nigel Lew
    Here is his DigitalPoint profile(LINK).

    He is 43 year old from Carbondale, Colorado(however he told me that he was from Aspen, Colorado). He has been a member since July 19th 2007. That is a very long time and most scammers have only been a member for a couple of months, but this guy must be a pro scammer.

    iTrader and Total Scam Value
    Here is a link to his iTrader(LINK)
    He has 26 feedbacks from buyers(LINK). From that he has 7 negative feedbacks.
    Is he scamming 26,9% of those people who buy something from him? According to the feedbacks from buyers he is, YES!

    But lets take a closer look to his iTrader, so we can learn more about Nigel Lew and which people he actually scams.

    iTrader sorted by categories(from buyers only):
    --
    SEO JOBS: 8
    Positive Feedback: 1
    Negative Feedback: 7

    WORDPRESS TECHNICAL JOBS: 8
    Positive Feedback: 8
    Negative Feedback: 0

    FTP/TECHNICAL: 10
    Positive Feedback: 10
    Negative Feedback: 0
    --

    As you can see he actually delivers the 10 minute jobs, but 87,5% of the SEO JOBS he actually scams people(according to his iTrader). If I count myself then the number gets even higher: 88,88%!

    So how much did he scam for?
    $150 from ezguy
    $200 from RECEP
    $200 from TinglingToyStore
    $300 from zac349
    And $200 from me(SCREENSHOT)

    Total scammed value: $1050 USD. I didn’t even count the other people who got scammed but those people didn’t post how much they got scammed for, but I believe it is anywhere from $150-$300 also.

    My Story About Nigel Lew

    I hired Nigel Lew for a SEO job. I payed him 200 dollars, and we had a 3 week agreement. He promised me good positions and very high rankings. The agreement said that I could get my money back at the 3 week mark. No questions asked. SCREENSHOT.

    After 5-6 days I began to wonder. He had not given me the reports that he actually promised me that he would give right away. I asked him and he told me that I would get it the next day. The next day passed and another day passed. Still no reports. I asked for my money back, and he told me that I would get the reports the next day. I waited another 4-5 days and asked for my money back again. Oh Boy! He got pissed.

    Here is our conversation after 2 weeks and 1 day. He had only 6 days to deliver, anyway here is the conversation. Link to conversation. I have marked the important parts with red.

    Now it has been almost 4 weeks. He should have make the refund 6 days ago. I asked him every day and he told me that I will get my money the next day. The next day came and he told me the exact same thing. I am tired of waiting and waiting because obviously this guy is just trying to scam me.

    It takes 10 seconds to refund money via PayPal. He told me that he did not have the money, but he would go to the bank and send it from there. Still no money refunded. Here is some screenshots of him promising me that he will give the money right away: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2.

    Yesterday I gave him the last chance. He promised me that I would have my money today. I haven’t gotten anything and he send me an offline message saying that he would have the money on Monday. Same thing over and over again, very hard to believe him after 4 weeks of scamming.

    What Now?
    I’ve informed him about this thread and let’s see what he replies. In the meantime I would like your opinion on what you think about this and about Nigel Lew. Do you really want guys like Nigel Lew around here at the forums?

    I’ve tried to create the best post as possible. Here is a thread that is accusing Nigel Lew for being a scammer(almost the same that happened to me).

    Here is another thread, which also accuses Nigel Lew.

    My thread is the third one.

    BTW, I have not received the money yet.

    http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=2133348

    Next up compression socks/diabetic socks for the fellow above me. Why is it that in 7 years I have had issues with no one except dimwits on DP who think I should be spamming forums and blogs.

    N.

    Further more it would take a week to publically out folks as liars such as I have done before so I dont bother. I have done this publically on DP with proof such as here.

    http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=2049013

    if folks actually bother to read that you will note that I fully busted that guy as being full of it. I could do it for all of my itraders if itraders actually meant something useful. Hopefully Shawn's new solution will aid in illuminating this sort of thing a bit better but its frankly a pretty tall order.

    Fair question, its because I am one of about 5 people around here that does not think that linkwheels, forum sigs and blog commenting is SEO. I provide ethical brand based marketing services. I don't simply hurl links at shit.

    That said, both myself and clients are protected on paper via paypal. Progmania filed a charge back on day 4 on a 30 day contract, clearly violating it. At which point I owe no one a damn thing, yet I still profer a refund to largely save the headache. When he filed said chargeback his product was not even done yet. But, much like I mentioned in the thread where I am selling his work, I am not going to take this crap laying down any longer.

    Also, I made it clear that it would help if he sent me the ebook it would help things tremendously. It is a fair request but he refused to do it. I am good at what I do, but I cant market air and as I mentioned earlier I don't simply build links with no rhyme or reason. I may have bothered to out all this asshats, that owe me cash by the way, but since I have been functioning in line with the latest algo changes for years(brand based non spam marketing) and these folks don't listen, their sites have typically wound up on page 300 which works fine for me ;) Karma is a bitch.

    I work from home and never shut of skype or IM unless I have to reboot my computer or my internet craps out like it did a few weeks ago. I also, for the several years I have been selflessly helping folks on the SEO board, provide both my personal and 800#. You know how many folks have been adult enough to actually call me? 1 and I am not kidding.

    And finally, I keep my time zones in order. Its no coincidence that these clowns like to pull this crap when they know I am not around to respond. To assume that I continuously take cash from folks for years and not do anything is quite frankly asinine. Yet I still bumble around here daily helping dispel the wide range of misinformation on this forum.

    That is the last you will hear from me about it less perhaps that I am in fact guilty of flying off the handle sometimes when I discover I am dealing with folks that have the social prowess of a sock puppet.

    I wont be dignifying the scumbag will rot in hell comment. That guy is incapable of using IM or reading his email or I would not be having that conversation in the first place. Although I will note that I got a fair bit of resistance when I told him I needed to rank some other things because he was missing his demographic by a mile.

    regards,
    Nigel

    This guy haven't received his money.

    I haven't received my money.

    You are a scammer and you deserve a permanent ban. Stop cheating off people and stop taking other peoples hard worked money. That is just sick, you are 43 years old and you tell me that you don't even have 200 dollars in your bank account. Come on... Just stop scamming people.

    he is a f. scammer and thief. l dont join dp cos they dont ban these kinds of shits from these forums. they look after these sh..ts and maybe some of the mods also having some profits from them ( maybe l didnt see any proof, buy maybe whynot, otherwise non of the forums stand thosse thiefs who has more than 5 member complaining that he is stolen their monies...)
    its ok. they can ban me. and keep those kinds of sh.i.t.s alive in these forums to steal others monies too. l dont mind.
    but l approve that he is a f. thief and l wish all those monies he get take from his childs and wish all his childs become sick cos of the monies he got by stealing others monies...
    believe me if l could find him in real, l would giwe him a very good lesson!

    HE IS A F. THIEF!
