    How well do you know...

    your source? Im just curious how many of you know your source personally or if the majority of us just know them thru an email address, per se. And were you pretty nervous the first time you sent them money?

    I for one, only know my source thru an email. I know hes not a scammer, but still, the fact of me sending someone that i dont know hundreds of dollars and trusting him to send me something in return worries me sometimes. Its just too easy for a source to say "well, its winter, everyone is sending me mad cash for their cycles, im just gonna keep it and they cant do anything about it."

    my condolences to those who got scammed.

    Yes it is easy for a source to do that. Takes a lot of trust. That's the risk you take when you start playing around with black markets.

    my source is the best,haha

    he's a close friend, thank god.so i have no worries.it was always weird to me that people didn't knwo their sources but in the last yr or so i have met more and more people sending out to random people.i don't think i'd be willing to do that personally.since i would need to know where the people i deal w/ live incase i have to take them or their loved ones out for fuckign w/ my $$$.i'm curious to read this post and see how many people know their source

    I have not ordered any gear in 10 years but I still talk to my guy every week (instant messaging). We've become buds over the years, and if I needed anything I'd go to him without reservation...additionally I have never met him face to face, nor referred anyone to him.

    before i found my current source, the one i had i only knew through email. but my current source and i talk frequently, and not just about a.s. i consider him a good friend as well as a great source, and building the trust is what its all about.

    My source is a friend of mine, unfortunately he moved to Japan. I thought that I had a new one, but he flaked out. He is a little Mexican queer in Cancun that my boy met. He said that the Anthrax shit was screwin' up the mail.

    I have been friends but I actually prefer to not be friends with them! I don't really order much off the net since I get most stuff cheaper locally!

    I don't think it's that far of a stretch. Depends on how you hear about him. If it's through a bunch of mods and good bros then it's both the sources and the refs' reputations on the line. Fortunately, I have a great source.

    I think I need to find a new guy, not because he's not good, but I've been hearing too much bad about him lately, so it's probably not worth the risk. Good guy though, sucks it has to be this way.

    And no!! Do not PM me or email saying you'll be my new guy, because you won't! I'm not that stupid...even though it might seem that way sometimes.
