The reason I am posting this is not necessarily to bash the person involved but to clear my reputation on these forums. Recently I was contacted by a famous BANNED member here and asked if I could help him buy this rajah. I decided it was ok and it seemed harmless enough and I thought it would be short and simple. So I did a bad thing and let this person use my PFT account to make this transaction; one reason I did it this way is because of how busy I am and this was just easier. This person had recently hosted an Exotica order of which I had participated in and all wenk ok, so I was thinking this person could finally be trusted. OK, the bids were made, and I stopped closely monitoring transactions going on in this thread (I just frogot about it for a couple weeks). Next thing I know, open-ended threats are being made under my name and I receive a PM from a moderator trying to understand why I was behaving in the way I was. I had no idea at first what she was talking about until I went back and read some of the things that were being said under my account name.
I want it to be clear that this sort of behavior in NOT in my nature and I would never throw threats at people or try to back out of a commitment unless ALL other avenues had been exhausted! This person took advantage of me (again) and used the opportunity of posting under someone else's name to carry on with his typical and famous unethical behavior.
This all took place saveral days ago and I never received any apology from him, or any sign that he knew something wrong was done. Accusing this seller (Houstonherp) of things before any sign of foul play was at hand is totally wrong!!! Any and all posts you see under ludwig777 in this post were NOT made by me but by this individual. I know I could have been banned for allowing someone else use of my account but Suzanne (Plantakiss) was so fair and understanding and she deserves much recognition in handling this situation!!!
I am guilty of believing that some bad people can change; I still want to believe this and I hate the thought of becomming jaded in life because of a few bad people but situations like this make it nearly impossible. I was burned by this person years ago when I first joined these forums and I was just wrong in assuming that this particular person had changed. Because of a damaged reputation I had to post these comments and I hope you all forgive me for starting this mess.
