CAUTION VENDORS - DO NOT ACCEPT PURCHASES FROM...
    #589363 - 03/25/02 09:33 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

To all Vendors & Shroomerites,
Myco Supply received an order from someone named Benson Li.

Benson Li is using a stolen credit card that belongs to a gentleman named Robb Lane.

One of my partners spent 45 minutes talking to Robb, going over his order and what charges were made. It seems as if there were other vendors here on the Shroomey that were effected by this act.

So in short, Benson Li is a criminal using an illegal account to purchase a variety of items (specifically towards growing exotic mushrooms)

Benson Li used the following ship to address:

Benson Li
875 Sacramento Street
San Fransico, CA 92106
Phone: 619-574-6544
Email: robb_lane@whatemail.com

Vendors beware - moderators please feel free to edit this post if you feel that too much personal information has been revealed.

I'm sorry to hear that our Vendors are being ripped off by this asshole!!!!
I hope he hasn't hurt you too badly..... It would suck to have to do away with credit card's because of rip off's... just to stay in business.
Do the credit card companys take the loss....or are you Vendors the ones out the money ?

I wonder if this dickhead is hanging out here in the Shroomery?

I hope he isn't.....if he is.... I take all my good Karma....and throw it in your face.
May your BAD Karma kick your ass....Benson Li

I believe it's the responsiblity of the person who had their credit card stolen to contest the charges with the credit card company. Though it sucks - it's not the vendors fault for completing the order with a stolen credit card. From the sounds of it the card should have been reported stolen a lot sooner.

bad thing is all someone needs is card type exp date, and number-it wont go reported stolen for a while of no big charges are made- they dont even really need the card-so if your card isnt missing you wouldnt report it-most theifs just steal the type,number,and exp date-

To shed some light on the subject.

The vendors are the ones who loose out.  As a vendor, we have to chargeback the victims credit card (or else the credit card the bank is under can file a claim against the vendor).

Also, the vendor is charged whats called a chargeback fee.  This is a fee that is charged to the vendor for any transactions that result in refunding the victim.  For example, Myco Supply ships out a $100.00 order and its bought with a stolen credit card.  We (somtimes) loose merchandise and the cost of shipping.  AND we're charged a fee for refunding the victim.     

For those you don't understand why some companies have a "restocking" fee, well 99% of the time, that fee is simply used to cover the cost of the chargedback transaction. 

Its a true shame that there are people within our community willing to do such things for a small bag of rye grain, brown rice flour or some spawn bags.  I hate to, "let the cat out of the bag" but the majority of vendors who support the Shroomery will often give away samples to people kind enough to just ask:)   

I'm not saying that eveyone should start emailing/PMing the vendors here for free things:)  I'm simply stating that EVERY vendor here at some time or another has given products away.      Let me emphasize this a bit more......

Go to Amazon.com and see if they'll give you free book
Go to your local grocery and see if they'll give you a free apple.
Possibly go to even some of your own friends and see what they'll give you!    .....see where I'm going with this? 

Myco Supply has given away filter discs, spawn bags, little bags of brf.  Its not a big deal to do it if the person is genuine.    But when incidents like this happen, and when people abuse a status of "trust" that all of us (especially the vendors) must have with one another in order to keep our passion for cultivaton alive... Well, thats when things like free samples, free advise, and general openess gets turned down.

As our community grows and gets larger, there will be a few "bad apples".  But I think if we (like usual) stick together, we'll all be okay :smile:

I can honestly say that I ve never ask a vendor for anything free, BUT I have never recieved a order from a vendor here that didnt include more than I paid for. Overall a good bunch of cats despite a few used car salesmen in the mix.

Most of the time, retailers are able to write off stolen merchandise as a loss for a deduction. Look into that. It'll at least help ease the blow this asshole has dealt.
