heres the latest from cardman<br /> [quote] <br />8th of November 2001
As today arrived my new computer, then my email service has been restored on a half load. This new computer cost me £800, when I no longer have my usual three. And this was annoying, when these new items like floppy drive, CD drive, and hard disk, will result in redundant parts when I get my computers back.
The second annoying fact was that they took every copy of my databases, when for safety reasons I keep a primary copy, a backup copy, and a secondary backup copy. However as they took all three then this was a second attempt to put me out of business in one police raid.
Currently as of today I can now process online NoChex orders, which is only due to the fact that I have good enough memory to remember important passwords, when guess what when they took those as well. Unfortunately I have to restore more resources before I can begin to post process mail orders as well, which is not to mention the chaos that will soon result by not being able to track orders.
Anyway when I find my favourite HTML editor and stop writing HTML in a text editor then I will explain what these morons did on Tuesday, and have a good moan like none seen before.
As to stock replacement then I actually did find out that they did not get all my GOLD cards after all, when they got one box of 250 cards, but then missed an already open box. Still as my stock was low anyway then one call to my supplier yesterday and just hours later a large GOLD card stock was here.
I also got new red PCBs yesterday as well, and as they missed some green ones then I have enough for my main two PCB card types. However while they also missed some Microcontrollers and EEPROMs as well, they did get every socket. So soon I will be ordering more of each.
Finally I would like to thank my customers for their support during this event, even if it is not the best idea to send email when my email system is marked as closed. Soon I will explain how FACT considers every one of my customers in over 47 countries a criminal without exception.
Anyway you can rest assured that I gave them a peice of my mind, but I did have to restrain from very rude remarks following hearing the comment equal to the above. So when I get this single computer in a better functional condition then I will say what these idiots did.
As to long overdue GOLD2 cards, then as they missed my latest expected delivery date, then today I phoned them. Well anyway they say that these cards will be dispatched to me tomorrow, but to be sure tomorrow I will phone them again to get the dispatch number.
I guess one good thing about the raid on Tuesday was that I was just about out of most cards at the time anyway, when GOLD2 was out, GOLD was low, and they totally missed my assembled PCB cards. So not having GOLD2 arrive when expected was actually fortunate.
So in the end they got one box of 250 GOLD cards, an almost equal number of faulty cards, and some junk cards by my satellite receiver.
As my solicitor has just contacted me, then he had a odd tail to tell. As the reason quoted by FACT for this action was like what they made up during the interview. I know this was made up when without doubt I know that it is a pure lie. As they said that someone named George came to my door and bought a pirate OnDigital card from me.
Now from my site and public views anyone that knows me would know that I do not support piracy of any service that you can subscribe to. This is why during my old business I never even supplied cards for the porn services when other suppliers did. So that claim was nothing but a lie to begin with, when at no time in my history have I ever supplied a pirate OnDigital card to anyone.
In fact I cannot even think of a case of anyone ever coming to my door and asking for such a card, but had they done so then my reply would have been...
1. As I know it is illegal then I would never do it.<br />2. As I do not support any piracy of this service, then I would not have supplied such a card had it been legal.
And the greatest proof would that if it were true, then on Tuesday the police would have arrested me, which unlike Internet rumours certainly did not happen. Also I should point out that search warrants are issued on the suspicion of a crime, and not actually on proof of one. And well if you know what these people are like then they would want to shut down blank card suppliers for being just that.
Anyway while these people would seek to cause problems I do not expect to be arrested. Still in the future I will remember to better restrict my files, and to backup my database to a remote location when my three copies was not enough in this case.
From the sounds of it I should get my computers back next week, which I guess is when all aspects of my business can resume.
One thing that I know won't be possible until then is customers issuing transfers to my bank account, when I can no longer access my on-line account to see if the payment was received. A right pain in the behind that is, when no longer having contact with my available bank balance means that I cannot be sure of any large purchase.
Well anyway time to discount these false Internet rumours, and as my business is running on one computer then it will be No2's turn to use it. <br /><hr></blockquote>
also there was a post in the scams room <a href="http://forumz.digital-worlds.com/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic&f=38&t=000008" target="_blank">http://forumz.digital-worlds.com/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic&f=38&t=000008</a>
which in my opinion is the same conversation
hmm people will have to be careful when it comes to giving details out ????
