    Then… after some further questioning before giving out my personal info… she sent me this email as well.. below…

    Chelsea,

    So to get you started Get back to me with the account details of either of the banks stated in the previous mail.

    BANKING WORRIES

    Firstly about the banking issue i am looking at you opening the bank with the banks i work with for 2 reasons one of that which you are also scared of.I have had some employees mess with my funds and even some absconded since am not on sight to meet them in person .At the end of the day am the loosing person.Now my reason for insisting on the banks i have ties with is for that same reason which you are scared of.I want to be able to put a trace on where the cash goes and making sure am dealing with the right group of people.We have internal ties in this banks and then no one can mess with us since the bank is my personal bank and i can put a trace on the funds.Secondly its easier for us to transact and its much faster because funds arrive in minutes since its the same bank to bank transactions especially when there are errands for quick needs.Now for your own security i advice you to empty your account to the last cent for you to be sure that we dont need a single cent of your money but we are willing to add more to your life and not deduct.I understand your plight as regards security of your funds but be rest assured we also have your interest at heart.I hope that answers your question on the banking aspect.

    Susan

  3. Online refurall schemes… I knwo they work, so don’t bother to tell me that. What I need to know is this:

    Will using different IP’s be enouth to avoid decection that I’m actually doing all the reffurals myself?

    Some schemes require credit card details… will opening several accounts (Still under my name) be enouth to fool them, or will they check, and see that all the names and DOB’s are the same?

    If they do check names and DOB’s, can someone reccomend a good site, that dosen’t need card details?

    I know this is a breach of the T&C’s of the sites… but let’s be hournest here, wold you rather I spamed forums with “Please fill in my refurall for a free Tv/Wii/Amazon points (Delete as appropriate)”

    And finnaly, if such sites were to find out that I was trinking them… what then? Do they just cut you off, or would fraud charges follow?
    Amit C…. you’ve spectacularly failed to answer the question… instead you’ve done exactly what I’m trying not to do… spam places with reffural links.

    Read my question next time! Oh, and for the record the site your on sucks… very few adds avaliable, 11 today. Without reffurals, which are actually hard to get, you’ll be making around 5p a day….

    If anyone has any real answers to the questions that I asked, then don’t worry, I won’t snap at you like this… it just seems like this guy is a bit of an ass and deserved it!

    When I try to log into facebook I get a pop-up sort of thing saying the following:

    Verificare l`identità
    Al fine di evitare frodi, dobbiamo verificare la tua identità. Chiediamo alcune domande. Solo tu puoi rispondere a queste domande. Queste informazioni vengono usate solo per ragioni di sicurezza, per proteggere l`utente da frodi di identità. Assicurati di aver completato correttamente tutte le informazioni necessarie.

    For some reason this keeps coming up when I go to facebook (I am already logged in), and the weird thing is, I don’t even speak a language besides English (according to google translate this is Italian). Does anyone know what to do?

    I’ll try to make this as simple as possible. I purchased nintendo ds games from a wholesaler in china. I initially wanted to open a reselling business on Ebay. I had many problems finding somewhere that sold legitimate games. I talked to the gentleman through email and he assured me they were official nintendo products. I purchased 5 to make sure they were legitimate, and that was that. It took a bit of time to receive as I live at an APO address. Well, once I received them I opened a few of them to make sure they were ok. I own a ds myself, and can tell a good game from a counterfeit one. These were really good quality, but they weren’t real. I contacted paypal and they told me to contact the seller before opening a dispute. I did and he seemed fine with returning them, even acted concerned. Well, I shipped them and in the meantime my wife who was pregnant ended up having to go to the hospital. She had some complications and was there for almost a month. She’s fine now thankfully, but when I returned home after staying in the hospital with her, I noticed that I had not received my refund. I called paypal and they told me it was already past the 45 period they allow to dispute. I tried explaining and the lady was understanding, said she’d contact the seller and if I had any further problems to contact them again and they’d take care of it. Now, 3 weeks later and still no refund. Not to mention the games cost me another 30 dollars to return ship. I’ve contacted paypal again and they seem to not want to help me at all. They tell me they sent another email to the seller, although I doubt they actually did, and I haven’t heard from him. I even emailed him like 7 times and still no response. I find it amusing though as a side note that paypal is their name yet offer no true help to buyers. If I had purchased this through my bank or credit card, I could of filed a chargeback and solved the problem easily. Even with internet fraud most companies won’t hold you liable for transactions not made by you, so how much does paypal really help? So now I’m stuck, ready to call paypal every day until they fix this as if they would have correctly advised me to open the dispute at first it might have been solved already. If anyone can help or know how I should further try and persue this, then please fill me in. I would be greatly appreciative of the gesture. At this point I feel stuck.
