    Before someone falls for it again.
    The new member Lancerk, will screw you
    He contacted me regarding my need for a fat log for a friend, etc
    and one of his friends has a board for sale, blah, blah, blah
    I know, I am an idiot. A gold medal for an imbecile who trust people.
    But I trully believed this place is all about, trust.
    Well, we gotta check who we accept as new members and do some basic check up before we accept them as members.
    like
    1- where do you surf?
    2- who do you know in the forum?
    3- how do you hear from us?, etc
    and some basic questions that shows that the guy is legit

    yes, the friends we know well, those are sacred to me. And this place is full of them.
    But it takes one dumb fuck to ruin the vibe.

    I also think we should increase the scrutiny on new members, if not, any motherfucker can get in here and mess it up.

    Stan, there is no end, I sent the money, guy never replied, and that's it.
    now in retrospect, I feel ashamed of telling this , but I agreed to send the money via paypal on friends and family
    so there is no insurance on that
    Paypal policies are: you are a fucking idiot, you loose it all!!
    which it is may be the truth.

    Hold on, so how and where did you reported him?
    Did anyone replied to you?
    Did anyone do something to fix it? and blocked him from doing this shit again?
    I wrote to the administrator yesterday and the day before, once I started smelling this shit was wrong, but I got no replies
    please tell me you got a response

    I fell for it as well but I asked him to text me back. Never heard back. He sent me an email and photos of a hap Jacobs that was in Ohio.
