    Whats wrong with people?

    Today I spent an hour helping the mods “banning” a person. I checked around when he offered his services. The person named seo-optimizer aka Forumpostermail aka timbor aka allsolutionpaypal and i am sure he has a few other alias on this forums.

    He does not want to leave his paypal account since he banned before and people can ask for a refund from there. They can also report to paypal whats going on.

    Avoid it

    When people have no iTrader or a few, check them up look at their writing maybe its similar to a another post. If they give you a paypal search for it in the forum or else where.
    Check his website if he has any and off course who gave him the iTrader.

    Spot him

    So how did i spot this faker? Well first of all he gave himself an itrader for the same service he was selling. Then he refuse to use PayPal and a few people already "used" his service but did not leave any iTrader.
    The first thing this people do is to start comment in post about nothing like "good review" even if it says it sucked. Report them as spam and get them banned quickly before they reach high enough.

    His game was to ask people for money and then pull out doing a profit $100 - 200 for doing nothing.

    If any of the members been tricked by him, please send me your number on paypal and i will write email to them (i done it before) asking them to close down or monitor his paypal.

    The hunting season is on let’s show this fraudster we mean business!


    Happy Hunting :cool:

    Good catch! We really need to teach these scammers a lesson!!
    I hope people come up and warn others. Itrader system is not 100% fool proof but still it is useful. So people do leave a negative itrade if you are scammed

    yeah!! I agree so what can be done about it? More over we don't even want a new thread being made everyday telling about scammers

    Why not make a single thread and post all in it?

    I did that and it got closed :) i have also suggested that you need to buy a domain and use that to sign in. Sure you can waste another 8 bucks for a new domain but it will help to stop the frauds.

    In my opinion, its sheer luck, it's different to track people by their writing or language, of course they won't use the same contact id if they are banned earlier....we just need to be careful and always check if he is been itraded by reputed members, has a good reputation overall and is well settled in DP(which means he hasn't scammed before)

    I know it's tough, but if we can just spot the tail of the mouse somehow, then i think we've got it :cool:

    The thing you did, was the thing I did to :)
    The only thing was that mods didn't really care, so I said that.. and I got banned for a week...

    But that's over now, if I read this :D
    Hope once, all scammers will be gone :)
