Ok I have a Buyers account on, and have been using it for over 1 year,
Have made some decent feedback, and was happy with the service since 3 days ago when they SUSPENDED my account for no apparent reason at all.

I had made a deposit using google checkout,
and it took a day or so to be approved, which is normal at scriptlance.

But this time something different happened.

They Suspended my account first, and THEN they decided to approve the payment!

They didnt send me ANY reason for the suspension, they just suspended it!
and what bothers me,
is "If" They were gunna suspend my account, then WHY would they approve my deposit?

Well, Let me tell You why,
Because they can earn Interest on all the Money in their Google account, or their bank account.

I am stuck without being able to use My account, stuck without being able to get my money back, until I get it back fom the bank,

I have opened a support ticket at scriptlance, and requested to know why my account was suspended,
No response for 24+ hours, so I requested a withdrawl and NO RESPONSE!

I have simply lost my patience today,
I warned them I would complain about their services,
and they still didnt answer, so here I am,
Letting You know exactly what happened,

I have attached the screenshots as proof of what happened,

I will be filing more complaints around the internet, and I willl be getting my chargeback.

My advice to You is STAY away from these Fraudsters.
They are sneaky, and offer no refunds if You get suspended,
so all of Your money will get suspended in Your account, until you file a chargeback,

If you pay with paypal,
They will try to win the case, and say that the items are intangible, for a dispute,
and paypal will take an extra 60 days to decide on where YOUR money goes,

What is this world coming to Lately?

    Yes, it happened to me.

    I hired a guy to write articles for my blog and he changed the passwords on my email and ran away with the key.

    Even More BS,
    Each time You respond it moves to the bottom of the Queue

    You cannot post more than 5 responses in a row (before receiving response from support staff). Sorry for the inconvenience. Each time you respond your ticket moves back to the bottom of a queue and it will take longer to get a response from support, so please refrain from submitting unnecessary responses. Thank you.

    They are quick to take your money and slow to put it back on your account, so I am sure this is a similar sort of problem.

    The best thing to do which funnily enough scriptlance forbids, is to report all their fraudulant transactions google checkout, 2checkout and paypal, the more that do it the more likely their payment system will be shut down, you can also report them to the domain register for taking money and not returning it when requested under the domain name. I too have had my money stuck in script lance and no refund for 16 days, they have disgusting business ethics and others should be warned to boycott them and use a better service!

    I also hire for a clone of a program. And paid $350.00 upfront. Half of the program was done and it wasnt even what I wanted in the description. The programer must of just found a program on the internet and slapped it in and even then the program didnt even function properly and was left undone. When I logged a complaint they responded that the work was done according to the programmer who had alot of good things said about him and came highly rated, so the reading read. But two days later even after the site was already paid for they closed my account which I had for 4 years and left me with no job completed and not refunds. They even sent me a smart A--s comment. After further review I found that the actual programmer was actually one of the main guys from scriptlance. What a kick in the teeth.
    The real sad thing here is that I have worked with some honest and great programmers in the past, with no problem. But how do you get around a family relative of the guy who actually owns the site. I never cursed at them, Im always patient and I never sent threating emails of any kind. Somewhere along the line the owner turned into a scam artist. Dont use this site. They are scam artist. I just feel sorry for the real programmers who are honest and rely on sites like this to make a living.

    Thank you very much for the article. I am going through the same thing now. Scriptlance suspended my account, immediately after depositing my money. Now it has been a whole week and i still have not received any comment on the issue. Now i know they have scammed me because they have ignored my ticket to refund my money.

    Within the same week they suspended my provider account. When i complained, it took them a few hours to activate it. You can all see, they want to keep buyer accounts locked so that you have no power to do anything.

    I hate this scamming site and regret why i did not stick with GAF. i am so disappointed with them. Their unfair habits should be brought to the light to avoid similar happenings.

    Scriptlance ripped me off with their escrow account function. Instead of creating an escrow account for my programmer, they took my money without a trace. Even through I have a reccord of the deposit into my account and now the money is gone without any record of a withdrawal for that amount, they refuse to address the complaint. They just took my money and refuse to answer my support ticket. Has anyone else had this problem?

    I have had it up to my ears with Scriptlace. They have taken money I wanted to put into my account because I have been winning a lot of jobs and every time I owe them a measly $5 my account is suspended. There isn't even enough time to get the payment made! I think it's a bot. Now, I have a PM from a prospect who is waiting for me to give him the "go" and he is going to select me for a job. It's a big job and nearly enough to pay a month's rent (supplementing my disability income). But I am suspended, the money is out of my bank, the transaction is finished at PayPal (as of more than 36 hours ago) and SL doesn't have the money. I put out two national press releases on them today. They should be sued. I worked for them a while back under a different email and they changed everyone's passwords one day. I was NEVER able to get into my account again, despite two months of trying. They treat their customers like bad parents treat little children. Poo. I hate them!

    after a buyer paid me $450 for a project and was very happy with it, even gave me a 10 start review, he decided to rip me off and complained in a dispute on scriptlance and those ignorant "staff" members of scriptlance took the money from MY account and gave it to him WITHOUT even reading my proof and telling me anything, and then they ripped me off $10 for re-appeal and DIDN'T DO ANYTHING AT ALL !!!
