I hired someone to build my company a website, they failed to build it and scammed me out of my money.

They also wasted 2 months of my time waiting for it, when it could be done by now.

The company is no where near me to conact.

Should I just accept the loss and move on?.

I paid with paypal so I guess I'm out of luck with get my money back from paypal?..

Was there a written contract between you and the designers?..

Comment #1

Honestly, your out of luck. Paypal does not guarantee "Virtual Goods or Service" which is what you got. The hastle of tracking down someone who scammed you is not worth it. I would move on.

Next time, when paying for something like this, use an escrow service. This insures that the work is done and no one gets scammed...

Comment #2

I think with paypal you can lodge a complaint up to 60 days after the payment was made. If you are right on the edge of 60 days, I would go ahead and get it on record. It can't hurt, and PayPal bends over backwards to protect buyers over the sellers...

Comment #3

Paypal wont do anything if it is vitual goods, they will close the ticket almost immediately if that is the case. I know this, Ive been there. Move on...

Comment #4

Ditto.

Or another suggestion, contact your credit card company, it may work, good luck...

Comment #5

Yea I called paypal, they said probly only way I would get my money back is if they noticed a pattern of scamming.

I wish they would do something for vitural items, they should have something.

I dont really care about the money so much though, it's just alot of time wasted..

Comment #6

Use someone reputable, have a contract and use Escrow. It sucks, but it's a lesson learned....

Comment #7

Try www.getafreelancer.com next time, or a similar service.

You can read reviews of all the designers/programmers, see their samples, and the payment is through an escrow service; if you're not happy or they don't complete the job, the $ held in escrow is returned to you...

Comment #8

Sorry to hear it - I am lucky to have a good team that I use.

Might I suggest you also post the details of the perps on all the relevant sites/forums to ensure others don't get bitten, you might even get a little satisfaction...

Comment #9

File a claim at the BBB (Better Business Bureau). You can also accidently list name the company so we don't accidently use them...

Comment #10

Hi Navi...The OP's account got closed( don't know if he did it or a mod).

You can check that upfront if you look at the posters details on the left :-).

Cheers,.

Frank..
