By the way I am a newby to online businesses, so take it easy on me.
About 2 1/2 weeks ago I bought a website from a guy in the UK. I asked for and received video proof of purchases made on the website, the video was sent to me on vimeo.com. We made the transaction through escrow.com. The website was profiting between $900 - $1100 a month and had traffic of about 2500 visits. He showed me income from November 2014 - January 2015. He also told me there were 4 purchases made on the site in February right before I bought it. After everything was transferred to me there have been no sales and zero traffic. I found the guy on flippa but we did the transaction outside of flippa. I paid $900 for the site, but what I received was a $50 site because it is now basically a starter site. He sent me a PDF of how to market the website, but it was very generic info. I have emailed him many times and he gives me politicians answers. I have tried to market it the way the PDF says but not any luck.
Any suggestions on what I can do, I am in the US and he is in the UK.
Thanks for any suggestions.
