Launch Press Release <-- i am in NO way advertising this business/scam, if link is not allowed, my apologies.
I was searching the internet for some sort of income, as a newbie i spent some time reading and researching various avenues until i came accross website broker and read the pitch by this guy "matt smith". Sounded too good to be true and i should have stopped right there, but was eager and wanted to run before i could walk. I bought into this in Sept 2010. Paid my $495 (for my own domain & pre-built site) and recieved two client domain lists to purchase and upload for aging. 70 domains in all. After the initial 40/5 day period were the domains would be aged enough to be sold, and i would recieve my earnings after transferring the domains i'd purchased on his guidance to the client. Nothing, then first excuse... 3 months later and excuse after excuse after excuse and ignoring my messages. Finally, i was told you can have your initial fee returned ($495) as the client(s) had fallen through and not purchased the domains BUT he would get a new buyer late december if memory is correct, still nothing. I accepted re-payment on the $495, but thats not sorting out the problem that he advised me on the domains to buy and he didnt or couldnt get them sold. Im stuck with 70 domains that seem useless to me. My head is saying cut your losses and run with regards getting my $495 back, but im also out a few hundred dollars on the mixed lot of .com/.info domains he advised me to buy, coupled with my time he has wasted!! I have tried making contact again but received a postmaster notification failure on his email address, which means the email address dont exist anymore or i have in some way been blocked. Cant hold it against me for being suspicious. Im not going to let this be until i get some sort of closure. See below a link to a post made last year also with a similar problem to myself. I found this during the 3 months chasing this "matt smith" which could be his name or not!
My question, is anyone familiar with this business or had experience with this guy before?
