Aha. You mean way back, before you can even transfer SPG to MT?

Are you shocked it wasnt for MT?
Or maybe he offered .6 for MT then took advantage when he thought he was referring to SPG.
Iím thinking  something along those lines as well. Would need to hear his side of the story...

Why? The guy offered .6, and got a yes. You donít think someone would lowball to that extent?

Do people sell Delta? Or do they have a strong audit team? I may have use for some delta miles (small amount).

If you sell AA, what is the chance of account closure? And if you book for others periodically, is this also risky?

Thanks. So UR, MR, Delta,BA and United are not much risk? I accumulated millions of AA and I am mostly flying star alliance, I guess I'll need to start using my AA miles when there is availability.

BA is a mild risk
