    It has come to our attention that an offer to do a team buy from a CP supplier is going around in PM form. The mods have disscussed it and decided it would be a good idea to put out a warning. While we don't generally mind these types of things going on in PM (since we DO mind them in open forum), we do want to warn you to make sure you know who you are dealing with. The person we have heard of is currently BANNED from posting to our forums due to questionable activities and or actions here on the forum. This person has made MANY names to come back to the forum after constant banning and we would NOT recomend a purchase to be made with him. While it is up to you and you may do what you wish, we suggest you think it through. If you are currently in contact with someone for such a situation feel free to contact a mod to see if the person you are dealing with is the one being disscussed here. If you are stiffed on the purchase we are sorry to say there probably isn't much we can do to help you...
    Well wishes,
    The mods

    Uhm.... You know what- I don't like this kind of sneaky behavior so i have no problem posting who it is. His current name is "lol" but as Andrew posted he has had many names over the past few years. And just keeps comming back. Always be causious with who you do deals with. While we have a generally speaking great forum here... There are some folks that come and cause trouble.

    dang you guys are taking this to the head! MAKES ME SICK!

    ive dont such orders that you have talked about and nothing shady has happend, NOTHING! ived order 3x from him....

    i think some mods somtimes have their heads in the clouds with the "AUTHORITY" the have. and sadly enough there are some that enjoy that. why dont we talk about that insead?

    i know you and i, adnedarn, have bump heads a couple of times but you have to be neutral too sometimes, you know what i mean? i guess i feel more comfortable about doing this because i know his info, like where he lives. ive been to his place. i took advantage of his offer because it is a good deal! and it is and you would be a really something not to.

    It's not a matter of being unfair; they are being neutral. The point of the statement is simply: these things don't always work out. If you get stiffed, then TF is not responsible. And the person with whom you are dealing has been banned from these forums, so watch it.
    It's no more agressive than warning users about trading with people labeled as bogus traders.

    I consider this a disclaimer rather than attack on the idea or person.

    fc3srx713b - I don't know about the "head bumping" you refer to... If there was some then sorry 'bout that but I'd guess maybe you looked too far into whatever I said to you. This is not an attack on the individual and all the MODS can go off of is history. It's just like getting a loan, if your history is not the best... well... I think you get it. Anyway- I've talked to this guy more than you know. On the phone even durring some rough times in his life. Even durring his being banned we've exchanged PMs about my girl and even my first little boy and the loss I experienced with him. My posting this post isn't a post by me. It's a post by the mods. Everyone has the right to know what they MIGHT be getting into. As I told him in a PM just moments ago. Hopefully the group sale goes fine, and his history at these forums can start going in a positive direction.

    well i know the reason why that person was banned.... and yeah that mod went off on that person becasue of HIS opinion, not because he was neutral!

    i think we all know that it isnt PFT fault for anything that happens on this forum, youd be quite wrong in the head if you did think so and should be on the forums...

    I wish that was true. But being that i've been a mod for this forum for quite a while now... (and a member since the fourms started) I do know the history of the forums.... And YES people do attempt to hold the forums responsible for bad trades.

    And no- sorry... I still dont' remember it. Feel free to PM me if you'd like to remind me. I deal with soo many situations here... It's hard to remember any single instance.
