Hi,
I posted a few days ago an offer to pay for a green on ultimateplasmatvs.com. I got an offer from fmbond007 that he would green for me, but since I have no TR yet I would have to pay first. I posted in the Help forum to see if this was something that I should do, and most people said that it is standard practice, and fmbond007's profile looked good as far as TR and feedback. So I paid upfront. Now I have heard nothing from fmbond007 at all. I have sent a few PM's just to touch base, but have not heard ANYTHING back at all. I am starting to feel like I am screwed. As a noob, what can I do? Thanks for any help.

make sure you've contacted a mod, especially before posting something here.

you shouldn't be paying/trading for referrals on ideal sites here anyways...

chuckdogg80

07-09-2007 10:35:26

I am a noob, so I was not aware about posting Ideal stuff, so please forgive me. And I was also not aware that I should contact a mod before posting in this forum. Both points are noted, and I will not make the mistake again.

I do however hope you get this fixed as I'm sure you dished out a good amount of money for that referral.

I have done several trades with fmbond007. He passed approval on some but went red on a couple. He did refund my money, but it took a couple of weeks. I believe he'll do it for you, but you just need to be patient with him. He seems to work slow.

This trader has done some for me, and while I did have to PM them regarding the trades, they did ge back to me and finish the trade. And all have stayed green.

I double checked the reflink with what you have typed here, and it matches the one at the site perfectly. I also clicked on the reflink that you typed and it took me to the page under my ref. It does not show you anywhere that you are being ref by #,,,,. My brother tested it out for me and it lists him as one of my refs, though he is not into this stuff and is not going to do any offers. I will PM you the reflink again.

fmbond007 was supposed to green for me a few weeks ago, but never did, even after PMing him repeatedly. Finally, he told me he wouldn't be able to green and that he'd refund the money, and after two PMs he still hasn't done so. I understand that he's most likely not a scammer, and I've had issues in the past with moving slowly myself, but it seems to me that this is getting a bit out of hand.

EDIT For the record, fmbond007 has refunded my payment.

I recently completed two trades with fmbond007. He greened on two Trainn sites and is still green.

No problems at all, and both trades went quickly and smoothly.

You won't know if he's legit as ideal takes quite a bit of time for all offers to green and then approve. Since you have to mail off the form and so forth you're probably gonna be waiting a couple months.

Honestly, paying for a ideal site is a horrible idea, just going a line.

I have paid $70 upfront for a green on Laptops.MacroBucks.com on September 29. I told him since it's a big amount I want a green within 5 days. It's been 3 and no credits are done (you have to do 3 to go green). Just a heads up.

theman2005

02-10-2007 19:55:20

I paid him for a ref............ so far, he haven't even signed up yet.........

So we'll just see. I'm sure he'll pull through as he did before.

He just seems to work slow, so you'll have to be patient. He does keep his part of the deal though.

I was just wondering how long it takes for this guy to sign up for a site and go green. I paid him $40 upfront (I know not too much) on monday and he still has not even signed up for the site. Should I be worried?

Based on my experience, I don't think you should be yet. Just give him time.

There will be no trades for I-Deal sites here. And by the time you found out that your I-Deal ref was bad, it would be too late -- you would be disqualified too.

Wasn't referring to you. I was just reiterating to the original poster as well as his trader, that I-Deal trading isn't allowed, and one reason why it's a bad idea.

theman2005

10-10-2007 17:20:53

Was told to post this, anyways

He greened and passed approval so all should be fine.

Not the fastest guy, but i would say he kept his word in the end.
Just takes patience. Might take a while for it to happen, but he passes approval and that's important!

BTW, it does take a while as, from what i understand, it is NOT him doing the site for you. He has other people signing up for him.

I just completed two trades with fmbond007. I paid first because of my TR on this site. Both were super fast greens. He was completely in contact with me the whole time. One of the best traders I have ever dealt with. He told me exactly when they would go green and delivered.

I wish I could leave TR for the trades but my browser is giving me issues when I try to leave TR in the trading module. I'm using Internet Explorer, I have no idea why it isn't working.

It's a common problem. You probably need to lower your security settings.

This is my "fmbond007" story

I was offered a trade with fmbond007 and I agreed. He stated that I had to pay him first since he was of higher TR, which I did. We agreed that if he didn't green within 5 days that he would refund me. 5 days went by, and he PM'd me saying that he would pay me in 48 hours. 48 hours go by, he PMs me again and says 2 days. It's been 5 days since that last PM.

I believe that he is using us members as a bank and is taking 'loans' from users offering big money ($50+) by abusing his clout of having 100 TR and having us pay him first without the true intention of ever going green. He is clearly "Robbing from Peter to pay Paul." Please refund the money that you owe me so that we can go our separate ways. I've tried being reasonable with you and that is clearly not working. So once again, please refund me my $60.

fmbond2007, your trading privileges have been suspended until I'm satisfied that you've refunded everyone you owe. Do not try to enter into any new trades until things are taken care of.

More than six weeks ago, fmbond007 and I agreed to a trade. Because he had the higher TR, I paid him first ($45). Since then, I have been very patient and generous with the amount of time I gave him to go green, until I realized some 10 days ago that this is not going to happen. At that point, I pm'd him, asking for my money back, and he sent me the same message as the one right above this one. I waited 8 days, and he still did not refund the money. Then I PM'd him again, telling him I'm going to give him one more day to return the money, which he did not do, and so, I filed a dispute on Paypal.
