    Hey all.

    SWIM's dealer just asked her to front her the money so she could go get hers, along with SWIM's requested supply. SWIM's dealer has never asked for her to do this before. SWIM's dealer swears she'll be back in 30 minutes with SWIM's XXX bag. I am feeling like an idiot right now. Did she just get taken?:(:confused:

    SWIM just doesn't know. Shes' been buying from this girl for almost a year--isn't ripping someone off more of what a dealer does to a newbie?

    She'd also be screwing herself out of a client forever.

    Rarely a good idea to front the cash, but if I have been buying from said purveyor of white substances for a year, she likely knows where vendor lives. Under those circumstances, endeavoring to pull such a sloppy rip off would probably be judgement misplaced on vendor's part...

    Hope it turns out okay.

    Cash on hand has always been best and reliable methoud mainly because they cant get away. its only happened to swia once, then end result for them thou was'nt pretty ;) hope it goes alright for u.

    Yeah, apparently SWIM's dealer is just a middleman after all.

    :mad:I have tried callling her but she has turned her phone off. If SWIM can eventually get a hold of her, would anyone recommend asking for her money or at least some sort of consolation (something, cut up to all hell even...just something to show for the money she screwed SWIM out of)?

    Or...is it pretty much a lost cause?

    Either way, I have learned a valuable lesson, albeit in a less than idyllic way. She obviously won't be dealing with said middleman in the future.
    This experience has turned her off to ever doing the yayo again.:(

    So SWIM fronted the dealer XX bucks? All I can say is I am lucky it's only XX, and that it's not that big of a loss... just think of it as a learning experience, everybody has them :(

    only front to friends who are hooking You up. don't front to dealers.

    Better yet, don't deal with dealers in general. You will get screwed a whole lot less often and its safer (legally and physically speaking).

    I have friends who happen to deal, and in that case I has split large amounts with them so that they both could get the material cheaper (not yayo, never done yayo nor planning on it) But one must differentiate dealers from friends... Dealers are horrible money grubbing thugs and friends are horrible money grubbing thugs that hook you up...lol

    SWISklander is wondering what happened, too.

    In his experiences with dealing and dealers a steady customer will not usually get ripped off so sloppily, like in this situation. Maybe the dealer who took the money was fiending and SWIkgirl182 was the first person she knew she could get money from...

    Who knows... its a nutty world out there...
