DONATORS BEWARE!!!
    #2933976 - 07/27/04 09:17 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

donators beware of the free spore ring of canada.The fsrc web site as in writing that they will send you 1 print for a donation of 4 prints with no dollar mailing fee.

I made a donation of 15 prints, and asled the guy run the show up there if he wanted to made a deal.

I said i would donated 15 prints in return i get 4 strains i need plus i sent a dollar for shipping.I also said i would donate 15 more prints after i recieved the 4 prints from fsrc and ask nothing in return for those.

I RECEIVED NOTHING,and the communication was slim on fsrc's part.I wrote fsrc several times.

former user magus66 told me he sent fsrc some mazetpec prints and also wanted a print in retrun, AND HE NEVER GOT ONE.


I WOULD RECOMMEND NOT TRING TO MAKE ANY DEALS WITH FSRC OR DO ANY BUISNESS WITH FSRC FOR THAT MATTER.

I was going to order from FRSC, until I heard this. How come there are no FSR's operating in the U.S.?

Go for the FSRE next time. Much more acceptable, and trusting. I hope this doesn't go against sponsor policy, but the URL is http://www.fsre.org

I think it was like 66 cents or though. It wasn't that bad.

No, you send them $1. Shipping is about $0.70. The FSRE came through for me once. I have no experience with the FSRC.

Hmm, thats quite odd. I ordered from FSRC a while ago and had no problem, I got the spore sprint within a reasonable time and all my q's were answered. Then again, it was a while ago...

he just probably took the prints as a donation. man you should just appreciate what that guy is doing. and not worry you got screwed outta 1 print. i mean if your sending 15 cant be that hurt for spores.

peace

true i'm not hurting,but the deal was 4 prints of some strain i wanted.It's a deal just like any other.i pm'ed him about it and he agreed to make that deal.if i ask you for a trade like that and i didn't send you would be pissed.

He wanted the donation thats all.

I agree that his job running fsrc is alot to hanlde,but if your going to do it than do it right.

well i am sure you will get your prints man. just be patient. i mean he has nothing really to gain by ripping you off. enjoy the journey. and dont come on here and start slandering a guy thats doing a great thing. unless what you want is for him to quit doing what he is doing.

peace

I donated a few prints and received a print in return, although not in the timeliest fashion, it did come.
As for:

Well, it is a place of donations.
I consider it a gift that he is offering anything in exchange.

I was trying to recieve prints here in Canada from a reputable source a few weeks ago and they also never arrived. I believe they're stepping up on security, perhaps because of the whole RC thing?

HERE HERE HERE!!!!!!!!!!

ok guys,  you dont understand what it takes to run a free spore ring...

as i ran the fsr america for quite awhile, i will let you in on what you get into...  30+ requests a day  1/2 are unlegible.... 1/4 asks for cultivation hints ( can you say conspiracy???) when you sort thru the massive amounts of letter EACH day, try to fill the orders with the prints requested, then make a trip to the post office, wal mart for more envelopes lol, you have around 3 hours or more per day, just in filling the orders.
ok, then you got to get online, and answer TONS of emails... do you ship here, can i get such and such prints, when will my print get here, have you filled my orders...etc etc etc thats another hour AT LEAST.

And what most ppl dont consider  THEY ARE DOING THIS AS A SERVICE.  THEY ARE NOT VENDERS!!!  they give the community 3+ hours of their time a day with nothing expected in return.. Sometimes their personal lives need a little attention, and the fsr's get a bit backed up.. PLEASE BE PATIENT, BE THANKFUL THERE IS SUCH A THING AS THE FSR's

i know for sure both eric and shdwstr are UPSTANDING indiviuals! they arent about ripping ppl off.  lol cant get too rich a dollar at a time  :wink:

if you need the spores NOW, the Shroomery has many fine venders. that will have your spores to you in a more timely fashion..

'nuff said
pleasant journeys

Thanks for the support CC. You of all people know exactly what it is like running an FSR... it is a service not a business.

Charvo... your prints were sent, and your emails answered. Once things leave here I have no control. If you know of a way for me to do tracking for a dollar, let me know... otherwise just be patient and hope for the best.

To everyone else, if you believe an FSR is there to make money, you couldn't be more wrong.
I think I've done the best I can for the FSR's and this community. If you all feel I haven't, then say so, and I'll close the FSRC and leave.

I'll leave it up to you all.

Shdwstr
