Problems With Member "Mark"
I have received a couple of complaints about the Card Talk member named "Mark". And I see that a couple of people have posted that their e-mails to him have been returned. I have recently tried to e-mail him as well and my e-mail was returned as well.
Mark recently posted in the trades area that he is moving. I am temporarily removing Mark's rights from Card Talk in the hopes that his move is the reason for these difficulties and that he will work everything out quickly after the move.
I am going "live" with this and posting it here publically so that everyone who may be in process of sending or receiving from Mark might use caution.
Mark, if you are reading this, please e-mail me to let me know that the problems have been fixed so that I can reinstate you here on the board.

Harris, Thanx for policeing the board.
This may be something, those involved may wish to avail themselves of, as it comes under the category of inter-state fraud, which is a felony."The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is the law enforcement branch of the U.S. Postal Service, empowered by federal laws and regulations to investigate and enforce over 200 federal statutes related to crimes against the U.S. Mail, the Postal Service and its employees. Postal Inspectors investigate any crime in which the U.S. Mail is used to further a scheme, whether it originated in the mail, by telephone or on the Internet. The use of the U.S. Mail is what makes it a mail fraud issue.

your 100% right in what you posted. I copied & Pasted it between the --- ---
This may be something, those involved may wish to avail themselves of, as it comes under the category of inter-state fraud, which is a felony.
To the people that got riped off through the US Mail
Just go to your local post office and do the paper work.
IT MIGHT TAKE A WHILE WITH LOTS OF PAPER WORK. BUT GO FOR IT.
Then with the post office. If one person gets there package misplaced one time.
The post office does not do anything .
Because things happen (mail gets lost).
BUT THEY KEEP TRACK OF THE PAPER TRAIL.
But then when it happens to more then a few people with the same person .
The post office takes it a totally different way and will go after the person.
Only if there is a paper trail.
(Were people fill out the right Postal Forms).
SO IF YOU GOT RIPED OFF THROUGH THE MAIL FILL OUT THE COMPLAINT FORM FROM THE POSTAL PEOPLE.
Go to your local post office and they will help you with getting the right forms to fill out or you can use the post-office web sight to get the MAIL FRAUD FORMS.
A while back
A dealer in FLA. riped me off for $5.00
Through the US Mail.
But being I sent payment through the US Mail.
The US Post Office took care of it.
Because the so called Dealer did it to a few other people and not just me.
This cost me more then the $5.00 that I got back.In phone calls , postage stamps ,paper work , to get a replacement money order,ect.
But to me it was well worth every penny of the $5.00. That I got back .
Just to get this Dealer that tried to rip me off.
When I got riped off from the Dealer .
I had to call the big post office.
Because I live in a small town were the local post office only has one postal worker.
That gave me the main phone numbers to call to get the right forms.
This Mail Person in my local post office is really helpful .Then did their job and really helped me get my $5.00 back.
This took me more then three months to get my $5.00 back.
But remember there is FEDERAL laws and State Laws. State Laws vary from State to State.
But always remember if the it sounds to good to be true it probity is.
