Honestly,I'm tired of defending myself over something that happened a year ago that people cant let go of. Amajnn started all the crap being one of the first to get one. I got over my head on the Vapezillas,and even though I issued a date for them to start shipping,I was rushed by many to complete them and start shipping them. At the last minute,I decided to chance from clear epoxy on parts to white epoxy. It was messy,and looked like ..... I'll be the first to admit it. He got his,and it didn't work outta the box and he ripped me a new one in the video he made. This caused a mass panic. The first 10 or so didn't look so good. Hell,it was my *first* batch! Because it looked ugly,and he couldn't get his to work... people started doing chargebacks on PayPal and Google Checkout. This put my accounts almost $1000 in the negative. PayPal and google then shut my accounts down due to the massive chargebacks and negative balance. I stuck around... I defended myself... I offered credits/exchanges... and in some cases I pulled money out of my own personal account to pay back some people that didn't issue a chargeback. I messaged people on ECF
for a month to let people know I wasn't running,and I was willing to make things right...and almost everyone got in touch with me for exchanges/refunds except for a few. What really gets me is that Amajnn was one of the first to get a refund when I could muster up the cash... I gave him a replacement vapezilla,a 3AA boxmod,and $50 in cash. This paid him off,and gave him a replacement vapezilla at no cost. This one I tested for 3 days before shipping it to him... and yet I found a video of him with the replacement. He complimented me on the improved looks,but trashed me that it still didn't work. Even though I told him that some batteries have longer posts,and some atomizers wouldn't work with it,he still chalked it up as me being an idiot and building a piece of ..... I have video somewhere on my PC showing me using the vapezilla that I sent him... showing the serial number and everything on it.
One person recently got in touch with me for an exchange and is one of my better reviews on my site now. I have been selling parts and mods since,and you cannot find any problems I've had since them... except one person that re-visited the vapezilla fiasco in the thread you mentioned. I've already contacted them and arranged warranty repair. I stand behind my products... and wanna put the vapezilla behind me and help others like I originally intended to do. I hope this clears things up. I'm not a thief... and I'm not out to screw anyone.
I even have a back and forth conversation with Misty from ECF
stating she loved my stuff and that people brought out the pitch forks and torches for a good ole' fashioned witch hunt.
And so things are clear... yes,I got banned from ECF
... not over the vapezilla,but because I *defended* myself about the vapezilla. I messaged a copy of one of amajnn's emails... not realizing that it had his address in it. He threw a fit and demanded that I be banned because I "put his life at risk intentionally" by forgetting to cut his address out of the text.
