I am not sure if you read my explanations prior. I had initially joined in 2007, under this same username. I looked back and found a post that had the same name, in 2007 yet said I was a guest which wasn't the case, here is one of those posts:
At the end of the year, for some reason I was un-able to log into my account anymore. I must have sent the password recovery e-mail hundreds of times, and each time I never received an e-mail from the tech site. I had also tried contacting an admin on the main page as a guest, and never received a reply. I tried for the next several months to sign back in, and was never able to. I even tried signing up with new usernames, and each time it would say an e-mail was going to be sent with further info on how I could log in, and that e-mail never came. Unfortunately, my transaction with Jim was done over PM's on this site. I had sent payment via paypal, so I never even had to mail him a check. He was using a friends paypal account for this. Shortly after I asked for the parts, and he shipped them, I sent him a message to let him know I had lost my job, and needed time to pay him. It was a rough time as the weeks went by and each day I was obviously more frustrated then the last about losing all my income. I ended up moving out of the area to live with family in Southern California. I sent him a second payment, and then I was not able to access my account any longer. I was hoping it was a glitch, or that the site was merely not functioning correctly and it would soon be working again, but never did. I didn't even know Jim's last name, as I was never required to send him anything in the mail and its just not something I cared to know, so when I really could have used that info, I had no way of reaching him. Him and I never exchanged cell phone #'s either.
At the end 0f 2009 I finally was able to open an account again, and I signed up with the same name. Strange how my username before appeared like it never existed, yet there are posts from me when I had my original account. Willy: might recall the post I made about a thread that had gotten out of hand on the NSX Prime site, and I am sure others had also. When I finally got back on the site, I sent a message to Jim shortly after, and posted this thread:
Jim replied back saying it was no problem, and glad I could get things fixed. He also implied that if I couldn't do it, that it would be no biggie and I told him I would most definetely pay it off. I had forgotten the amount we had decided, and when he sent me a message with his address, I set up a payment thru my online banking to start paying him off. Since I had already sent that off, and didn't know the amount yet I sent it for $50.00. I was also able to go back into my paypal account (which I haven't used since 2007) and found the records of how much he was paid. I figured just getting something to him till I knew how much he was owed would get things rolling, and show that I wasn't merely giving him a line of BS. I had every intention then to pay him. He will get another check paid to him around June 1st sent certified from my bank to cover the remainder, $250.00.
I am not sure how much more I could apologize for this, and while you might all think its a load of crap, look at my posts. Look at the old username I had, how could I have posted as a guest, why did it all the sudden appear like that username never existed? If I really want to "cheat" or "steal" from Jim, would I have gone on two years later creating basically the same username, then sending him a message saying I wanted to pay him off? Come on. I could have made a new name, and no one would have ever known. I am being fully, and completely honest. Times were rough for me when I lost my job, and it took a long time to find a new one. What I am saying is legitimate.
I have been posting here for two years or so on and off. I have never done this before, and I have been trying really hard to make this issue go away. Instead, I send a payment, there is no explanation on why I only sent $50.00, plus the final amount is on its way. I sent Jim an PM with my e-mail address now. How more obvious could I make it that I am not full of crap?
Yet, more people (people who I have posted with since I joined in '07) are continuing to say nasty things. Maybe my situation was legitimate. Maybe I am trying, and maybe there are reasons why. Its not as if I had been logging in for the last two years and ignoring Jim's pms..because I couldn't log in! If all this crap was said about any of you, you would not want to be a part of this forum either, because now anytime I post, people think I am some cheap ass liar, when thats not the case. All I was asking from the start is the benefit of the doubt, is the ability to explain myself. I told jim point blank: a 50.00 payment is on its way, it should arrive around Wendesday of next week..and look I kept my promise. There is no reason to continue to cut me down further. I would like to ask that these criticizing posts stop and that someone look into the posts I am talking about and can explain why I lost the ability to log into my account in 07, and why it appears as a guest now on those old posts.
I won't post anymore on this thread as I have said all I can. When Jim gets the check, he can let you all know, and I hope by that time an admin has deleted my account, as I don't feel welcome here anymore, and since my name is so slandered, I wouldn't want to be here anyways.
