One of the mods deleted it. There was suspection of it being a malicious rumour.
However, I've been trying to place an order since early Wed and Wed and Thurs PayPal returned a message the vendor couldn't currently accept payment then today the website buttons to add something to the shopping cart are not there. This is making me think something's up but could just be coincidence.
I know everyone on the shroomery only wishes our reliable vendors like Ralphsters the best....

I've never had a merchant acct with PayPal so I'm not sure how that works. If the site is for the moment messed up or what...
Waiting to here it from the man himself...

Thank you for the valuable info. Now we can put the rumor mill to rest!

I'm not worried about the future watching of Ralphster by the DEA, I want to know if HIS CUSTOMERS are being watched. Let's start with the question whether or not it is true that Ralphster is being probed by the DEA? I didn't just make up this rumor or have a funny dream last night. This information was given to me by a very trust worthy source. Call it paranoia if you wish, but it sounds like it's true that your buddy might have gotten me and some others on a DEA list. No thanks to Ralphster's Spores if that is true.

Hopefully some other members of this board will know even just a little bit more than you, Sammy.

Same thing happened at MushMush paypal cancelled the facility there as well. It seems they want nothing to do with our hobby now they've made their money. I have to exchange my ?'s into euro's now and send cash which works out more expensive. I wouldn't mind but mushrooms are legal in Holland which is were they're based.

Some of us DO grow, Sammy. That's why it would be HELPFUL to find out whether or not I will HAVE to break down my kits based on whether or not this is true. Which after Paypal shutting down Ralphster's and the info my buddy gave me, it's looking like this is indeed true that he's being watched by the Feds. Not good for the home team.

paypal is notorious for closing account that pertain to a illegal substance. I know the spores are legal, but they closed the account because it can be used for illegal grows.

Paypal has closed lots of people's accounts for the same reasons.  What sucks is if ralphers never gets his money back. He will have to jump through many hoops to get it too.

Don't worry about the DEA, paypal is a bank, they have to follow certain guidelines. Giving out info is not allowed unless the DEA has a court order, or a search warrant. YOU ARE NOT BEING WATCHED!!!!!


smoke some grass and chill out.  :smirk:  :wink:

well what knid of suspicious activity would you be doing to allude that you are indeed growing hallucinogenic mushrooms?? it's not like you have a giant growroom with a 1000w HPS light giving off heat for the thermal sensors to pick up and the odor of 20 cannabis plants seeping from your house...for the most part the Agents would be just staring at your front door all day long...what an exciting job....

Paypal is notorious for rolling over on its clients and that's what's also alleged in this case. DEA had a warrant and got Paypal records. Sucks! Also, you don't have to be growing pot to be arrested when somebody comes and kicks down your door at 5 in the morning WITH A WARRANT. All you need to be doing is GROWING SHROOMS!!! Or maybe have some innocent culture plates laying around that have been innoc'ed up. Yip, that'd do it too. I hope to sweet God that they don't have my records from Ralphster's.

Also, why did Paypal JUST NOW close down Ralphster's and this word about him getting ready to get a probe in the ass from the DEA, just happen in the last couple days? Coincidence??? If it looks like shit, smells like shit, guess what?

I'm taking my kits DOWN before Ralphster takes one in the ass.

um...the courts just don't hand out warrants...there has to be a probable cause for a warrant to be obtained...the feds cant just go up to a judge and say "i think John Doe is growing shrooms gimme a warrant" they need some sort of basic evidence to secure a warrant...just cuz you're on a list from a spore vendor isn't enough evidence to get a warrant...else they would be busting in the door of many a mycological researcher studying spores under a microscope...
