MY 2 CENTS ON THE RIP (OFF) DILEMMA

Post by T-BONE » Mon Jun 08, 2009 4:10 pm

I don't normally check the forum but once a week or so and I can't believe what is going on. I am a 2 1/2 year forum user who chimes in lightly but has learned everything I know about my favorite amps from here and loves this group forum.
With that being said I was skeptical about doing my 1st swap on here about 3 months ago. I swapped out a mod with BEWITAGOS1 and my faith in internet dealings was restored! (awesome dude). So I did it again with guess who?(RIP STUDIOS) about a month ago. Well he seemed a little strange so I asked for his # which he quickly gave me and I'd called him. We talked shop for about 20 minutes or so and I felt comfortable doing the trade. The trade went great. I got conformation that he got the mod.(I thought it was strange when I tried to PM him a couple of times to see if he liked it he never returned my message). And my module was fine.
So now I feel shitty for all you guys on here who got ripped!!! It seems that a few guys on here and myself were fall guys to make him look trusting. He even started a new GOOD GUYS list when my trade went through and I actually commented on him being someone to trust.(I will be handling that next).
If I can help in anyway let know as I am F'n ripped !!! that a s*&t head would do this and ruin what was a great trusting forum.
Below I am listing the # and address I was given from him. I hope it helps as I am sure you already have this info.
Keep it shreddin guys and I am sorry !!!

wow, thanks man. Based on his IP I found another address, but I'll try calling him and check it out.

EDIT: Seems like your address is the one that someone already checked out, where a bunch of goth kids were hanging out. The house is for sale just so you know. Seems sketchy..

First time I ever got shafted on a transaction. T's a great guy to, thanks for the kind words bro (hope that Mod is still banging for ya)

the 1086 modded by Rob (jadedfaith) is down right sick but still way manageable.

Strange...maybe the Divincis are professional swindlers, probably not though, considering how easy information on them has been tracked down (even though it might not be correct).
