Dan's warning to DDF:
I hope people realize that any buying group or anyone else that gets merchandise in advance of payment can go south at any time. That's even if you get a check at the time of delivery.
X-posting as I don't want anyone to say that I never put a warning here.

From what I heard what happened to a few of them was that there cc processing company opened an investigation and is holding a lot of money which caused them to blow
Not that there original business model was great but this was the final blow
