Concerned about jan
Anyone know anything about this guy? I sent him paypal on tuesday and he hasn't even signed up yet. Getting worried... hasn't answered PM's either
This guy is pissing me off now. I sent him $75 to do 3 sites. He did 2 sites (still yellow) and did not sign up for the other. I PM'ed. He hasn't even read it.
It took me a while to get my green from him, but I got it.
I think I have his AIM screen name in my PMs, I'll try and find it real quick.
Edit--Found it, playaskillz27
I have his screenname. He hasn't been online for days now.
I was doing some trades with him a while ago, 2 for $50, but one fell through and I got refunded. It was simply taking too long and he kept saying he would do it but nothing would get done
Anyway I think he's a good guy but just busy
He went green for me on Freepay PS3. I have not submitted for verification yet.
[quote6cba13218d="ummchacha"]He went green for me on Freepay PS3. I have not submitted for verification yet.[/quote6cba13218d]
lol, that wont matter, freepay isnt verifying PS3 accounts. So you wont know if its a good green for another few months.
Omg. I just hope to get a refund from this guy. I'd rather pay another person to do it.
he had a little delay with signing up with me because of something that hapened with his family member but he signed up for me as soon as he could get back on and was green within a couple hours of going yellow. hopefully nothing has happened and i'm sure he'll be back.
At the end of November, I set up trades for the (then only) 5 TRAINN sites with him. We agreed to only do 2 at first to be safe, and then the other 3 after. I paid him for the first 2 up front , he signed up on 3 of them ( ? ) and not much progress has happened since. We've been PMing back and forth every once in a while, with him saying various things, mostly he had school and was really busy. I'm starting to lose faith now... I sent him a PM Wednesday which he did read, but never responded to. He keeps insisting he will go green and he will do my sites but it keeps getting pushed out further and further.
He's yellow on 2 outta 3 of my sites. He's sitting at yellow for almost 2 weeks now. I don't think he even completed the offers. We should just get a refund. I'm going to PM a mod after a few more days.
I paypaled him for my freepay 360 site on december 26th and he said this when I asked him to let me know when and what offer he did "4 sho, it will either be today or tommorow but it will be an instant offer soo dont trip." I am still waiting and losing faith as well. I'm really getting pissed off. I know he's reading my pm's and choosing to ignore them. I want my money back.
Well as Aurelius said,its a family problem,which is the reason i've been gone from here for so long.My mom has been in the hospitol for quite some time now and everyday I go there at about 1200 and stay and watch tv and eat lunch and dinner with her sometimes even stay the night.To all you people waiting on me I'm extremly sorry,but every since skewl started up Ive been having to wake up at about 600 am to get my little sisters ready for school then after that i have to go to school then on my lunch break I go see my mom and sneak her some some In and Out burger.Then I come home pick up my little sisters do my homework and try to help my sisters with theres then we all go to the hosiptol and stay with my mom for dinner.
As you can see I've been extremly busy,no where in that equation states me having any time at all to do this stuff.My mom is coming home this friday though,and I would really apreciate some of your guys patience,but others such as d3athtonic,who actually said that hes in no rush,is trying to fuckin make me look bad now,thats pretty fucked dude,but hey cant blame you that is alot of money and once again Im sorry everyone. (
Yes I said I wasn't in a rush. That does not mean I can sit here and wait for 2 weeks especially when you don't respond to my PM. If you were to reply my PM and explain your situation, I can understand it and give you more time. We're talkin about money ($75) here. It's irresponsible to set up a trade, take my hard earned money and disappear for a while.
On Jan's behalf, he is a wonderful trader. He has always done trades with me and refunded me if he did not have time.
When a family crisis occurs, you really need to give a guy his space. For God's Sakes, his mother is in the hospital! Would you be online refunding people when your mom is in the hospital?! You guys really need to get off his back for a while.
I understand bad times like these are unavoidable but a promise is a promise especially when money is concerned. I can give some space to Jan but I cannot fully trust him including the ordeal he claims to be going through.
Anyways, I'd like to APOLOGIZE to Jan. Hope you accept my apology.
I want a refund for premiumipods.freepay. As for flashipods4free and ipodnanos.freepay, if you want to do it, do it this week, otherwise, I want a refund for those sites too.
I have no problem waiting. I just like to know what's going on. Now that I do, I can wait...I'm not impatient, I was just getting afraid that I had been scammed. Now that Jan has explained the situation, I'm cool. Hope your mom's health is improving!
Thanks for the understanding guys, once again im extremely sorry for, the wait I know how you feel,but you guys have to understand from my side of the road.
Thanks guys, and your trades will be completed very soon.
I'm sorry to hear that Jan. I kinda know how you feel, but let me know if I can help at all.

My sentiments exactly. Yet another case proving that in this type of community, good communication is absolutely the most important thing there is.
OK I have no problem with a person delaying things when times are rough, but I have to wonder when the person keeps people on hold this long. I've PM'd him with no response, although he's read the pm's. Tough times or no, if you've been paid by a person and haven't even signed up to their site yet, I think a refund request is totally appropriate, especially when you're needing your very last green for a site.
Anyone else have thoughts? I'm curious is there's been progress made on anyone else's end?
Hey, well I have some wonderful news,my mom is out the hospital and at home!She seems to be doing fine so far,but she will probaly be bed written for another week or so,so im still taking care of her.I also have a problem now that I havent been home very often I dont have any cash in my epassporte account because i didnt have time to cancel my offers and its overcharged now.And all the money I had in my paypal account went towards a piece of my moms hospital stay,and I also bought her a hdtv for her room since she loves watching movies,and seeing that she will be in bed alot now i got her one.
So that completely leaves me broke in my paypal account and epassporte account,but no worries because Im transferring some cash from my bank over to my paypal so I can start completing these sites for all you that are waiting on me.
Thanks,once again Im sorry and I will get to all of your guys sites once the money is transferred to my paypal account,I appreaciate the patience.
I just wanted everyone to know that jan followed up with me and did an instant offer for me. He was very cool about things. This thread can be closed from my end now, I'm satisfied.
Again jan, didn't mean to cause any trouble by posting here and am glad to hear your mom is doing better.
Jan got me a green within minutes. I found him to be polite, prompt and helpful and I would trade with him again anytime.
I'm starting to get concerned about Jan as well.. paid him last week, haven't even seen a sign-up yet. What really concerns me is that someone else in this thread paid him to do their Freepay 360 site, which is what I did also...

He has alot of friends. He has done multiple sites for me multiple times. No Reds. I can vouch for him on this one. Collige, I have traded with this guy 5 or more times, sometimes for the same site, he does not go red for me.
JAN---CAN YOU PLEASE DO MY GREEN ASAP--I AM IN A HUGE RUSH.
I've PM'ed a few times and sent my paypal a few days ago---I am in bids for one more green. Once thats green, I will only be waiting for you. I would like to submit for approval ASAP so please complete my offer.
I really hate to rush you and I send my condolences to you, your mother and your family. I know times are rough and there are priorities, but I would've said don't worry about it and traded with someone else if you told me it was going to take you some time. I will include your family in my prayers for you as well. Good vibes from Jersey....
I didn't want to be rude, especially with your situation. I am just really anxious to complete my first ever freebie site! And to get another TR point.
Has he done yourfreevideoipods.com for anyone else? Just don't want to risk a red...
I dont understand why he would even initate trades if he has such a tight schedule.. he is only creating more work for himself and causing concern among his traders... i am too, one of the people that is waiting for him to complete his part o the deal. Paid him almost a week from now. Even though i'm in no rush i'm still a litle concern.
supa...is he doing yourfreevideoipods.com for you? If so...I don't know what I am going to do-I really don't want to be out 25 bucks when I could jsut trade with someone else.
He took a few days to green for me, but I still got a quick green from him.
i will still keep faith in him---plus its almost the weekend...so I will be out...but just hoping he didn't sign up and trade with supacold as well. Guaranteed DQ. Hoping is the key word. With supa's sig, it looks like its possible...
he is doing Freepay.Freeflatscreen for me
Alright Jan---Come on buddy...you're battin cleanup, come through in the clutch!
I have another paypal to do tomorrow for my last ref (including jan) and my first FREEBIE!!! I am a little anxious--Granted its only been 4 days now, but I am dying of anticipation to submit for approval, be approved, and shipped to ME!!!!

uhh careful there..why was she hospitalized in the first place shock
A lot of people's relatives seem to be going to the hospital lately.
I'm not accusing any of you of lying, but it IS a little suspcious.
and those cheeseburgers? LIES i tell you, LIES.

i'm assuming he has at least 5+ trades pending on his part....
and it is rather difficult to not be suspcious when he has recieved several payments all at once and this delay...
PS when we iniated trade he respones time was rather quick....until he recieved my payment... he did not respone to my PM

damn...im glad i didnt send him any money yet......hopefully hell come through though because i really need that green at premiumipods.....
Same with me supa....he has till monday. Leaving 5 or more people hanging is a bit rediculous...
agreed and seconded--sent numerous PM's and emails---no response at all!
wish i had seen this thread before i paid him $25 for giftcards
Yeah, me too! LOL--Right after I sent the money, I checked this thread and said DAMNIT!
I'm also waiting, but it's only been 4 days.
who thinks he's gonna take our money and run?
I hope not---but we'll see
better hope he comes through, paypal complaints, useless.
jan has not "abandoned the forums"--he was here two days ago.
I strongly advise you all not to file PayPal complaints at this point. I have PMed jan to ask whether he can commit to a deadline by which he will have completed an offer or have sent PayPal to those of you he still owes. He will be expected to provide proof.
If he proves unable to meet his own deadline, by all means, do what is necessary to recover what you're owed. But the guy is going through some rough times. There isn't much to lose by giving him a few days. What if he comes through for everyone, only to find out that his PayPal account is on hold?
Can't a paypal complaint be cancelled at any time during the investigation?
[quotec208ddd6df="Bildo818"]Can't a paypal complaint be cancelled at any time during the investigation?[/quotec208ddd6df]
Well, yes. But I'm suggesting that you give jan a few days to respond before you file your complaint.
I understand everyone's frustration, and I agree that he shouldn't have established trades if he didn't have the time or resources to complete them. But I think that there is more to lose than gain at this point by filing complaints against him. He hasn't been out of contact for an extended period of time. He has come through for others in the past. My guess is that he will come through again this time.
If he doesn't respond with a clear plan to complete each of his trades by Monday, I will be the first in line to take action against him.
well, I went ahead and filed a complaint (sorry, it was before your post KeithA) if I cancel, and he doesn't meet his deadline, will I be able to file another one or will that just look shady in paypals eyes?
I really don't even want to continue the trade. Everyone I have traded with, its been great communication, easy trading process w/ no problems.
Im doing your site tonight!
that's some good news.
Yea,sorry guys I just been up to my neck in homework and projects,but this weekend I have absolutly nothing to do so i will be completeing all of your guys trades.
Sorry for the delay.
well i guess i over reacted a little.... i'm just very cautious..
thanks for replying
Jan did an instant for me a couple days ago, he's a good guy
i think he did an instant one for me tonight
You over reacted supa? Man, I feel and look like the biggest asshole right now! But the complaint has been cancelled on paypal and we got everything figured out.
I owe you a HUGE apology Jan....I am sincerely sorry. Hope there isn't any hard feelings....
No hard feelings, lol, were cool! 8)
+karma for you -> Thanks for getting back to us! ->
[quote09c60112c2="jan"]No hard feelings, lol, were cool! 8)[/quote09c60112c2]
just want to know....
when will you do my sites?
Just thought I would add that Jan did my site and went green. Thanks.
Cool Cool---Still waiting for him to do mine...as well as fgr_admin to do mine.
After those 2 I will be able to submit for approval!
OK not cool - jan went red for me...
[quote2ab993283f="wozzybear"]OK not cool - jan went red for me...[/quote2ab993283f]
Could be a mistake or something, you never know, but this is not looking good for jan.
I never had a problem with him, though.
Wozybear and I have worked this out,the problem was I accidently did an offer twice,so to work It out Im going to do a different site for him.
Once again sorry Wozybear!
i'm waiting too.
i hope you will complete our trade (very) soon.
I had 2 trades set up with Jan - he signed up for one 5 days after I PayPal'd him and though I've asked on 3 separate PMs what offer he completed he won't respond and actually tell me. He's read all the PMs and still isn't green.
I canceled the other trade after he still hadn't signed up [bca9e8a7116]11 days[/bca9e8a7116] after receiving payment. Requested deletion of the trade and asked Jan for my money back for that trade via PM. He reads the PMs but won't reply and answer my questions....no sign of a refund either. Will be filing a Paypal complaint.
I understand he may be having some troubles at home but still I just wonder why he has time to read the PMs but won't respond for days, or sometimes not at all. ?
Sorry about this guys. I didn't realize that he still had issues with anyone.
I dropped his TR to -1 so that nobody else initiates trades with him. Please continue to update everyone here.
The odd problem is that he has all these problems but still PMed me for a trade this past week Feb 7th wanted me to paypal him first for YourFreeVideoIPod. Don't know why you would start a trade with someone when you have so many problems. Glad I caught this thread, thanks.
And once again,I come back from a long week of work to see people complaining about me,which is totaly understandable,cuz I shouldnt have set up as many trades as I did.But I did and Im going to have to finish them up,Im sorry once again Im jst in the middle of basketball school and family issues right now.Tommorow Im looking to take care of my remaining sites.Sorry for the wait.
see, he always comes through
ok, i would like to see you becoming green on gear.free4me.net!
Jan, that doesn't explain the reason you tried to set up a trade with me on Febuary 7th. I have dealt with people like you before as I have been in the freebie game a long time. There is NO explaination for you trying to set up a trade with me when you have all these outstanding trades and also at the same point that you are engrossed in your "homework and projects", but you have time to send me a pm asking for me to paypal you money for a site?

any news yet? still waiting for you to green for me on flashipods )
Anyone been takin care of yet? Jan had time to make another trade offer in someones thread, so should have had time to come here and comment and/or take care of this current issues
[quote2e1dffc1c9]Anyone been takin care of yet?[/quote2e1dffc1c9]
He still owes me some paypal. He has kept in touch with me, so I don't think it's an issue for now.
Jan completed our trade succesful.
I am still working out my trades with Jan...
Is anyone still waiting for jan to complete trades?
[quotef681558659="KeithA"]Is anyone still waiting for jan to complete trades?[/quotef681558659]
Yes, I paid him $50 to do an offer weeks ago...
This makes me regret choosing him when I could of chosen someone else to be my referral...
i'm wiating for a flashipods4free.com ref
Sorry guys computer diffucluties,comcast like completly fucked up so I had to get another internet connection,the chosen few of you that need me to complete your sites,plz hit me up and tell me.
Sorry once again believe me Im as pissed as you guys are with me,about this situation. (
[quote0c7ebec9ec="KeithA"]Is anyone still waiting for jan to complete trades?[/quote0c7ebec9ec]
Here's my story
I paid him $20, he signed up on ipodnanos.thefreeproject and completed an offer. I requested approval and he got dq'd - I PM'd him and asked him why, he said "Oh must have been because I did an offer I had done before, I didn't know you couldn't do that..." (draw your own conclusions)
I gave him my referral link for another site I was working on and he said he'd do an offer there. He never signed up for it though.
At this point I'd just like my $20 back and I think I'm entitled to that.
EDIT oh by the way, after he dq'd and before he agreed to do another site (which he never did), he told me he'd sign up again on nanos.thefreeproject with a different name, IP, credit card number, etc. I told him I didn't feel comfortable with that.
Update Jan finally refunded my money. I'm out the fees Paypal takes out, but at least he followed up on it. I'm cool now...
is this guy not comin back??
Yeah, he offered to pay me back days ago and yet I have not received any reparations as of yet.
[quotec6fcdd045f="Bill"]Yeah, he offered to pay me back days ago and yet I have not received any reparations as of yet.[/quotec6fcdd045f]
same. but hopefully he'll come through
i guess he ain't coming back... no refund still (
Im back,but waiting for money to transfer to my paypal account,so I can pay ya'll back.
sweet. sorry for doubting. just that' it's been so long
any idea when you might send a refund or turn green? btw our deal was $25 for FlashIPods4Free.com
lost cause i gues... (
alright i'm gonna file my paypal disput today... any advice?
Can you even? You've usually only got a month to file a dispute.
yeah i just realized that.. and i'm guessing jan is logn gone by now... $25 down the drain
He's still IMing for to do trades with him or do him favors.
Looks like his ref for my PS3 will go south when it hits the approval stage??? Should I get another to cover his? That will make one for cash4cookies, one for asadmalik87, and one for Jan. What do you think?
