Angry Tom--What's up with your bad info?

Tom,

Hey, you probably don't remember me--My name is Amanda and I was one of the first bunch of folk to purchase a Diablosport Predator from you back in 2004.

Well, fast forward to now, and I sold the above mentioned Predator tuner to a fellow enthusiast (completely unlocked) and he had some questions when he got it, because it boots as "Lightening" rather than "SVT Focus". I assured him that it is, indeed, for an SVT focus and that I originally purchased the unit from you.

Well, he said he just talked to you, and you told him that there's no way to mate an SVT Lightening Predator to an SVT Focus and that he's going to fry his PCM.

Surprise, with this news he wants his money back. What's up? I sold him a solid piece of equipment at a smoking price, and now due to your advice, he thinks I'm scamming him.

Could you please clarify, for the public, that the Predator tuners you originally sold for the SVT focus booted up as "Lightening" And that I am not some two-bit scammer.

Appreciatively,

~Amanda H.

My reputation as a seller/individual is at stake, and is why this is a public post, and not a PM.

Hickory, eh? How's ol' blowing rock>?

So because I didn't email you to politely request that you clear my name because something you said caused someone else to think I'm a scammer, you're choosing "not to help me"?

Fair enough.

Thanks bunches, Tom.

Well, regardless whether it should have been emailed, PMd, public or private, the fact of the matter is now that the cat's out of the bag now, so why not just help her out because the fact that you're not is not setting a positive image. Just my $.02 worth.
