Thread: Got an infraction for informing about Scammer - WOW

  1. #1

    Got an infraction for informing about Scammer - WOW

    And the post was deleted too. for the reason - Inappropriate post
    This guy (goodman0000) offers a video creation service at DP. Took payment, tried to fool for around 10 days (saying he will deliver the video within 3-4 days, then 24 hours, then 6 hours blah blah.. never appeared till date.. It's been more than 1 month) This was not an issue.. Good, it was not a big purchase and I just wanted to try his service with one video.

    BUT ISSUE IS

    when I saw him offering his video creation service with a lucrative offer again and posted on that thread simply asking "THE URL of my video if I missed it anyhow or he got time to make one ever" I had his idiotic mails promising quick delivery "ASAP" and requesting not to open a dispute at paypal.

    DAMN... Someone gave me infraction for this post and SOME MOD DELETED MY POST for above said reason.. Was that really inappropriate? When I was fed of PMs and mails.. OFFF***

    I just heard storied so far.. This was my first experience at DP..

    BTW, I was scammed at NB too with one new writer and thought of taking up his service for a special project.. and he flew away with $50 advance..
    Crap.... Our in-house team is best and safest.. least interested I'm in trying others' services.

    Try to look for reputable iTraders before you deal with someone here, the number of posts can be used as a guide also, but ultimately anythings can happen even you taken all precautions

    Only pay advance to senior member of forum . If you are dealing with new members then tell them to write content and show you its quality . If you are satisfied than pay them .Senior traders never do this and newbies keep runing here and there with small amounts .

  7. That seems to be the policy on DP, or the lack of thereof, they don't get involved in any disputes between members, so looks like scammers are never banned unless they break any rules.
    But rest assured we won't let anyone scam our members here on NB

  8. That is what I hate about DP they just banned members. I got banned there because of multiple account wherein I have not created any other account besides my account . The problem in our country is that if we asked for internet connection the IP is being shared by many consumers...

    I would pay upon completion of work (not only that, but I'd demand a live preview)
    he should know how to optimize a low quality video and/or let me access his computer to view the video (that way I wouldn't be able to steal it)

    This is the way I handle my clients (first we agree on specific terms then I show them a low quality, resized preview of the work and if they like it we'll move forward) unless of course it's a client I trust I believe it's the ideal way to do business online

    Will should build a built-in escrow concept for NB. This is the only way to minimise scam.
