Dan DeVille, are you saying that WideWideWide is the same person as softtissues?

Cuz if so, said person PM'd me over at DFI-Street forums, offering me the same video card for $370, as well as an AMD x2 4400+. I was (still am) pretty skeptical, though his story sounds plausible. Same story you got, so at least he is consistent.

Outcasted, how did he scam you out of money, exactly?

He gave everyone the same story so maybe this one guy gave him a bad rep.

time to head over to dfi and stop softtissues
and get a ban on widewidewide here then it seems.
then take his IP and file a complaint to his ISP when he's got no internet lets see him scam.

I wouldn't be allowed to, considering all my buying all goes thru my dad. I'd rather have a nice new from the store/online retailer part.
