I would ask that you please keep track of the cashed check... it's probably one of the better items of evidence. I suspect that there will be a legal investigation into this matter.britimes2 said:I just noticed that I wrote and sent the check on November 28th, and it wasn't cashed until December 29th.
Also, while it is entirely possible that we are talking about a "lost mail" issue here, I find it hard to believe, considering that with all the nationwide and overseas shipping I do, I have not had this problem before.
I don't know what happened, and I refuse to jump to conclusions; but I will say this is strange. I expect some further explanation if not from the member responsible then from the members who are still in contact. I have contacted Loma Linda myself and received an answer like Geotech's.
I am very upset; and this is the first and last time that I let someone else handle any charitable contributions on my behalf through an online forum.
It is a shame that other charitable causes are potentially scrutinized by these circumstances.
I got an e-mail receipt of sorts, from LadyRidge, on November 7. It all seems on the up and up to me....exA4 said:Won't paypal tell you both when your donation was "cashed"? Didn't they send you receipt?

Sad and unfortunate chain of events. That is why I choose not to donate online thru forums, and make direct contributions to local charities. Less chance of mishaps when fewer people are involved. Besides, I believe 'charity begins at home' and helping those closer to me is just as satisfying.
I hope everyone gets resolve and satisfaction. I am glad to see that T-Mac will handle it differently next year for those that donate on behalf of this group. I know T-Mac is concerned about the reputation of this forum and will do what he must to protect it.
I look forward to seeing how this is resolved so everyone can move on.
I am concerned about JC (aka LR). I received an e-mail from her inviting me to visit her on the other site. She does not seem to be posting on that site since early in January. I checked her graphics web site and it is apparently closed. Not sure what is going on with her, let us all hope for the best.Cajun said:I also used Paypal and do hope that this situation comes to a happy ending. Do not want to point fingers at anyone but there should be a way to resolve what happened. Even though JC is banned it may be a good idea to let her back on to give her side of the story directly to our members.
I also tried to contact her website about ordering a decal. My email was not delivered due to her server, and is being held by mine.25 Year Honda Owner said:I am concerned about JC (aka LR).
