How transactions usually go
Selling a channel, chat or bot on Telegram is not the most transparent process. Until the opportunity to transfer the rights of the creator of the channel appeared, it was necessary to provide the buyer and the account of the creator with the channel.
Well-known guarantors are attracted to such transactions. They control the entire process and are responsible for ensuring that the seller receives the money and the buyer receives the channel. The guarantor is rewarded for the transaction.
But where is the money, there are always scammers. Guarantors regularly encounter different schemes of deception on the part of both buyers and sellers. Therefore, the order of the transaction is strictly defined and does not change.
Sometimes fraudsters offer the seller to conduct a transaction through a third-party guarantor or without him at all, so as not to pay for his services. For the sake of economy, some administrators agree, but in the end they remain without money and without a channel. If they do not come to their senses in time.
On October 4, information began to appear in the admin chats that Susov threw the admin during the transaction Media 550 thousand rubles for the Adam’s Apple Channel. The injured admin created a separate channel where he showed correspondence with the guarantor and described in his own words what happened.
The administrator demanded that the guarantor return the money. At the same time, administrators from the community began to seriously doubt the decency of the guarantor. It was worth starting to understand, and interesting details surfaced.
For example, everyone was surprised that the offer to sell the channel was found on Avito. This is a very rare occurrence in Telegram, and few have come across this. Proposals for the purchase and sale of channels are placed on the respective channels or through bots in Telegram itself – on the so-called exchanges.
The channel itself turned out to be of dubious subjects. He advertised in posts mentioning porn, prostitution, adultery. For 60 thousand subscribers, the channel cost of 550 thousand rubles is clearly overstated.
The admin community did not really know the seller and buyer. Media claimed that he was new to Telegram, but was already making a deal for half a million rubles through Payeer, an unpopular payment system in this environment.
The buyer also aroused suspicions when he too quickly agreed to compensate only part of the “lost” money. Because of all this, admins started looking for additional information and found a lot of interesting things.
