There address is located at ikeja, you can view that at their website, print out your transaction details bro, go to their office with proof or otherwise, go there with a sound lawyer accompany with stain looking mopol. Am sure ur money will be paid in full. All this your screenshot should be in paper, they should explain what made them delete your account, if care is not taken, you can sue them real big. Thats fraud or attempted fraud.

This people are criminals base on your recent screenshot. I will advise you take them up immediately. Dont delay in taking action. There are various legal firm handling online fraud related matters, you can get one, print out this their recent reply in papers also. They will pay you what they didnt take from you in addition to the service you requested from them they criminally attempted to fraud you of. Delay is dangerous. This guys are mean. If they can ascertain they collected your money and refuse completing their own side of the bargain. Then they are fraudsters. I will advise you use the media as well.

I still don't understand why you are still chatting with them

Go to the police station and report your case with proof

Better still,just find three army guys and storm their office.

Stop disturbing yourself. Take actions. Scammers thrive most times because we don't take any action

Your money is not gone, take that as an assurance from me. Instantgold have shown to the whole world their true colour, just like i said on instantgold thread, Nigerians are good people to do business with. Send me an email with all your transaction with this guys. I will give him 24hrs ultimatum to get your fund refunded after verifying all ur deals with him in which his office will be ransack and nairalander will be updated as the event goes on.

Hmmm, your opinion is not well taken, Nigerian image is being dented here by that scammer called instantgold, i have gotten several related cases about him and how he run his business. For your information, your profile and pics have no significant meaning to me ok, get that fact as you dont even know me either. This time around, Instantgold wont find things funny. An assurance.

Thank you very much for this comment. Firstly, let me tell you that it has been the same guy posting with different usernames here, so don't take him serious. This is one of the guyz that look at Nigerians as unserious element and any Nigerian that just read one side of this story and then take the side of a dubious Oyinbo needs to work on his head. You may also need to provide evidence of a scam perpetuated through our company in the last 10 years if we have to take you serious.

And this question goes to you megachange.is, how do you agree to deal with a dubious company since you alleged that you know us to be that ? Isn't that really stupid of you, if you know a company is dubious and then you agreed to deal with them ?

This is what really transpired:

1. Megachange created an account with us and made withdrawals, supplying different accounts that does not match his profile/registered name. We processed the withdrawals and released Naira to the supplied account details. Then, he told us that he want to do more and we replied him that we are no longer interested in his transaction as he is not a Nigerian neither does he resides here. He supplied every fake details during the registration but his name indicates that he is not a Nigerian, sth like Russian name.

One bad thing about this man that called himself an exchanger (megachange.is) is that he will never send any email without insult. If he has to ask a question at all, he will end his message with some kind of abusive message. To cut the story short, we processed the transaction and asked him to quit our website.

2. After several days, he sent a mail using different name and email that he placed a withdrawal and that we did not process it. This time he did not mention his reference number so we tried to trace with his email which he used to send us the email but our system returned no result. So we asked him for his registered email and the reference number and he replied with details. When searched, none of the email and the reference number returned any result (Strange! it never happened within our system). So how this man managed to make the withdrawal ? well, he may have sent the fund to us directly and claimed that he did it through the website so that he can threat us to process the withdrawal again after we asked him to stay off our website.

So again, he provided screenshots showing the email that never registered on our website and this called for our investigation. So, firstly, we checked and got his fund in our okpay account with his mentioned reference number. We believed that he made a direct transfer into our account since he has the account details but he lied to have carried it out on our website (kinda playing us).

Then, we asked him to give us 3 working days on Sunday. We told him our admin needs to go through our various bank accounts to be sure that the same transaction has not been paid since there is no trace to it in our database. (we do have customers whom by mistake do not go through the site so they will be paid directly too, so we needed to confirm before we go ahead to release another cash again or issue a refund as the case maybe).

We think this dude do not understand English, our message attracts series of further abusive and insultive messages from the so called exchanger - megachange.is again. Then we told him to expect a reply from us only after 3 days. Only for him to flood several fora today and start posting fake and libelous comments.

We reminded him that he needs to check our website TOS again, we clearly stated that we do not allow registration from Non-Nigerians and that any Non-Nigerians who register will be removed from the system. But again, this dude failed to understand simple English...

Please help us ask him, is it by force to deal with him ? Why waiting for 3 days for our investigation so boring to him ? We never had any issue with our good customers but this poor exchanger want to tarnish our image to promote his sick website.

Your side of the story is taken, so this is not your first time dealing with him. He has a good case with you. Just doing a search now on your company profile with every relevant details. First and foremost, this megachange.is is not a nigerians, if your company is not reputable, he wont deal with you. All your email exchange with him is very cruel in every radification. No saint will read them and wont act. You dont know me and i pray for you not to know me. The real fact of exchange in life is to make profit irrespective of your jurisdictions, i may base in the united states why u base in England, we can still deal without problems if trust exist. I want to make this clear to you that it will do you great good to GET MEGACHANGE.IS MONEY REFUNDED IN 48hrs FROM NOW or dance to what you startetd. Its not a threat. My agency work closely with NCC, Even if your office address happen to be false, i can assure you that you will be napped. Once more, your side of the story is well adhered to and it will do you great thing to refund that money in 48hrs from now. Thank you
Mind you, asking someone that base in isreal to come to your office at ikeja lagos for a refund of 230$ shows its a planned scam. You will hate yourself. I promise

We understand we used strong language but he first used worst and we did not see him as a customer, but instead as a destroyer. I have to tell you also, we don't succumb to any threat from anyone, so save your ultimatum in your pocket. We are a legally registered company and we will be happy to meet him in court if the need arises. You have liberty to do anything to assist him, we have put everything into the hand of the OKPAY team and they will release his funds to him after they have warned him to agree to the terms.

GOODDAY!
