Just got a return email from Mike, answering my email earlier today.
Probably in bunker mentality mode right now.
He was in to me for 1.5 large and I got 1 large back recently. He just promised the .5 large soon, and said he is getting it together.
As to scam/fraud--I don't think so. Overwhelmed, disorganized, victim of PA public schools? Probably all of them.
I said, Mike, I know you will do it. In fact, when you do make me whole, I will be the first to order from you again.
Does anyone here have a relative who is or has been a f**k-up? Still talk to them, don't you?
I was pizzed--not because I might have gotten screwched out of dough--but because of lack of communication.
I believe if we will all mellow for a short while, all will be made whole.
At that point, you can commune with your conscience and decide whether you are willing to give another chance to a d00d who has had a rough stretch.
He has great product, but he sux as a businessman currently. If he simplifies his process, as he outlined, it will probably be the best thing he has ever done.
I know the feeling of wanting to sell it all right now to as many as I can reach, but that creates overreach, and that is where he stumbled.
I didnt know they had a good skool system in kenya....
seriously....its sounds like his ordering system sucked, and thats putting it nicely. I think if he can manage the bundle deals and maybe put a bid # or a lot # on his quotes or lots and have the people reference that in their pay pal payment things will be easier. Sounds like alot of throwing darts at the wall going.
Hell if i had a lumber business, and i quoted 10 people for something, then 4 people bought 2 weeks later....without any way to track that would i remember WTF the 4 people are exactly? Probally not. But if someone dropped a stack of hundos in my account id be sending them an email to see what they wanted pronto.
