All jokes aside, the moral of this thread is that you should not trust someone just because he/she/they/it is a DDFer. Investigate before you put yourself at risk. Take into consideration the number of posts and the content of those posts (and your gut feeling).
Contact Henche if you got scammed.

A rating system can easily be manipulated. To wit, you think any of the polls on the forum aren't a big joke?
Yeah, think sites like Yelp. Much of it is manipulation

But for some reason here on the forums people trust each other.
We should have some kind of rating system

that would be great. Especially those of us who have known Dan since high school. Builds trust. Can have a ratings and points system.

BOTOH sites like Ebay are pretty reliable. Especially for the ppl selling stuff there should be some sort of a system as there is no way of knowing good from bad.

There was another thread about this once upon a time where the person reached out to a mod and it had a happy ending.

I've had people charge back their seminar admissions.
Luckily, just an honest mistake.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
