I am gonna say something that may be a bit controversial and will get flack for this and will probably delete this comment, but here goes.

Dan as owner of Dan's Deals has an achrayus to post on DDMS or a general disclaimer by every cc post as he currently has for amex.

I live in the same orbit as people like Dan that do not look at a cc as free money, nor do I spend anything unless I have the cash or plan to pay it right away.

But there is a significant portion of people who have no handle and understanding of debt, and just max out cards. I know many who are deep in debt because they just charge their cc when they don't have enough income. Instead of financial discipline and following programs like Dave Ramsey, or working more hours they take the easy path and Max out cards.

This is not Dan's fault but the people read ddms and see the huge sign up bonuses and nice trips that Dan and others take using points and they get sucked into the cc world. And once they have a cc it is downhill from there.

I wish Dan would have someone have a guest column on ddms about how to budget and live within means and build wealth.

Many jump into cc because of ddms but they are ill equipped to deal with the temptation and responsibility that comes along with it.

So yes, I do feel Dan should be posting about this on ddms, not as a scoop on the scammer with exact details, rather as part of a general series about fiscal responsibility

If I get flack for this I will delete. sorry in advance

Glad I got a result and not flack

Thank you dan

FTR, at the beginning of every DDS Dan goes on for a while saying exactly this. If you are not disciplined, this game is not for you, the points are just not worth it if you will go into debt because of the spend.

True but everyone thinks it does not apply to them. A continuous series on the topic of ppl who got scammed or general tips on this subject would probably help more

Again, in no way is it Dan's fault, it is similar to why what'sapp started indicating forwarded messages as such and limiting the amount of ppl who you can forward to at once. It wasnt what'sapp fault that ppl in India where getting killed. But what'sapp still felt an achrayus to help combat the issue

The most interesting thing that I learned is how easy it is to get people to give you millions on their cards...

Maybe their lawyer got involved and suggested that confessing publicly was not a good idea?

I am the one who posted and then deleted. I was torn between loshon horah and trying to warn people for the future. Bh I was not involved but know a few people who are deep in CC debt because of this.

Still not sure if I did the right thing posting it. In my opinion they should have done it in a way to make the chargebacks easy and then file bankruptcy.

Why'd he delete his post?

Realized it's lashon hara. It won't help anyone involved and will just cause more gossip. If you read this thread you already know to not do this type of reckless spend

Fiverr option is dead. There is some new guy but much more expensive

anyone figure out how this guy is offering this shipping?

I may have stumbled onto how he does this scam. I got a label to fill an order for ebay, but ebay would not allow me to use the tracking number since it is already used by another user/order

This guy is probably making fedex labels somehow thru the ebay system, maybe he makes a fake transaction and then cancels it. Not sure how he is doing it but it seems to be related to ebay.

Seems to be a scam

Ricoh is a great brand, high quality etc, this is a great item and great price for the features, same type of machine by brother or HP is much more,

SP C261SFNw Color Laser Multifunction Printer
Part # 408235

B&H and Adorama has is for $179  tax NY & NJ
https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1367604-REG/ricoh_408235_sp_c261sf_color_mfp.html
https://www.adorama.com/rcspc261sfnw.html

Amazon 3rd party seller has for $166.80 but tax to many states
https://www.amazon.com/Ricoh-SP-C261SFNw-Multifunction-2400x600/dp/B076F8GQDB

Focus Camera on Ebay has it for $164.99 tax NY & NJ - Plus there is 10% ebay bucks today (not sure if targeted or not)
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ricoh-SP-C261SFNw-All-in-One-Color-Laser-Printer-/282841859776

Why I bought this:
Color Laser under $200
Duplex Scan and Print - this is very convenient, it scans both sides of sheet and you can print double sides if needed but I hardly see a need for that.
Wifi
Mobile Printing
Scan Copy Fax
Large Paper Tray

Based on Amazon reviews people are happy with it, its not for a high paced tons of printing environment, but for a house it seems perfect.

HP and Brother machines with similar features are much more money, also the toner on this is much cheaper that HP which has gotten extremely expensive recently on amazon.
