Just wondering if anyone has been ripped off by these guys?

A very good friend of mine got well and truly ripped off by them. When he tried to rectify it via their forums, the admin/mods really didnt care and flamed him to pieces. They also removed any trace of threads that he made, none were offensive or flaming, just trying to find out what was happening. My friend did nothing wrong, except trust his cash to these scammers, the situation could have been easily rectified, but acidmods just didnt give a s...

Just wondering if this is the usual attitude of acidmods.com, or a one off experience.

Anyone else used them and been ripped off?

Anyone thinking of using them should probably find somewhere else.

I think you just dealt with a bad guy.
A friend of mine was a global mod, and I was a forum mod for them for a little while (before some drama happened, that made him leave, which meant I had no big reason to stick with 'em), and the time I spent there, I can confirm they're okay, the admins all know what they're doing, but they're very dumb. I remember one guy was convinced he could replace a PSPs UMD Drive with a hard drive, then hook it up via USB and use it to load ISOs. People who understood it explained why he was wrong, so he took that information, took the only (expensive, I'll add) method we could think of that WOULD work, then claimed his original method worked. Lots of things like that happen.
So, don't deal with anyone there except for Global Moderators or higher, is my personal opinion. I know all the admins are okay, but yeah.

funny, I never had any issues with them, I bought some chips from wired input in january. I think it was a guy named mikeking or kingmike something like that. I had some issues with an order from deal extreme one time, and modchipdepot another, I will never buy from either of them again. LLamma is a turst worthy shop. and like I said, I never had problems with acidmods

Hello, I was reading your post about kingmike. I am having the same problem with him. I placed an order with king mike about 6 mos ago for 50 wireless xbox 360 controllers. He told me that i would have them a wk later. Mike has ignored most of my messages. When th e new store opend again we were able to get a hold of him. He told us that he would send us I believe about 50 intensafire kits. He never shipped them. I have about 4 pages saved with conversations between him and I and all his lies that he told us. Long story short I don't think mike will ever make good on his word.

    Catboy brought up the idea of a new staff tier specifically for anti-spam to combat the issue, as several of us have noticed it getting worse with no apparent changes to prevent it. Any chance of this happening, or at least introducing a limit to the number of threads new users can post? @Sicklyboy

    That can go bad say they make the new staff group and then start blaming that specific member for not keeping up with spam removal

    @AdenTheThird, wish it wasn't the case but I unfortunately have no insight into that nor the ability to implement/change anything like that

    If anything normal mods should just be brought back
  • AdenTheThird @ AdenTheThird:
    A limit on how many threads new users can start should be put in place. Simple, non-intrusive, gives mods plenty of time to respond to spam before they can do it again.
