I think shakinghorizons has a good idea esp. due to the fact that he's willing to spend quite a bit of money which he indicated is in his cart. I would take it a step further and bring in somebody to ensure that the deal doesn't go sideways. Earnest money contracts are usually seen in real estate deals whereby funds are held to ensure that both sides are treated fairly and in this case instead of holding $4500.....just one box of cigar at the members choosing can be verified/validated through one or more members to determine authenticity. This would go a long way towards determining "intent" and authentic product. Once this is resolved then those who have proof of product can determine if they want to do business with the Vendor. Conversely, the Vendor who does want to do business with members ( some who don't have to worry about legal matters who live outside the Embargo) will be able to do so because they are proving themselves to be authentic. This is too important because of what has been said about how things that go on with fake product and such. It's called Risk Assessment....in order to verify things sometimes you have to think outside the box and in this case both sides would be protected...it's going to take the Vendor making a choice as to how they want to proceed...IMO it's the Vendor who is the one to do most of the work. It will be interesting how this proceeds.

More generous proposition than I would make. Nothing would prevent a huckster from sending one real box then jamming you with fakes on the $4,500 order.

X2. What does matter, Bryan, is how you choose to conduct business here. We are, for the most part, a friendly group of enthusiasts.

This is the forum for commercial retailers to post about their offerings. However, if you are busily sending unsolicited private messages based on our forum conversations you won't be welcomed long.

Holy cow....how much coddling can one Forum give to a business so obstinate that they continue to bite the very hand that is trying to help them? For me....and this is just my 2 cents....I've seen and read enough to know that this Member is causing a problem and trust is earned...he's not earning it at all.

Well I did look through their site a bit the best way I could since I don't speak or read Spainish what I thought when I looked at the pricing they were hovering all so close to the $240.00 price on most things unless my eyes were playing tricks. Now I know for fact real prices do fluctuate with whatever stick you buy and some of the ones listed should be way below what the prices I saw. Was the prices in U.S dollars or pesos? I don't know but holy cow I know I can get them much cheaper from other sources just imo. Maybe some else can shed light on the pricing please? Thaks

Geez, I must be under the witches spell as well, because I actually agree with SparklePony on this one.

It might be an 6 month old thread on our forum, but is very topical and new at FOH (to which he provided us all a link.) Therefore, it is a fresh warning here that this scammer is still out there today taking advantage of unwitting victims.

I, for one, appreciate the heads up! Would the Unwelcome Wagon Crew preferred that he start a NEW thread about it (so we could bytch that he failed to look through the forums?) Isn't it better that he simply topped the older thread with recent information? Sorry, guys, but you jumped the gun too quick on this one, IMHO.
