why did Kingofdonks do this, and then act like hey i fucked u over, but who cares? its no big deal.

new roll, $1000 exactly, and my room is paid up til June 24th, next monday. June 25th is when ill be checking into a room in vegas for a week so i wont miss the appointment with my attorny. The appt i made to make Jennifer happy, and then i never got a thank u for all the effort i put forth into getting in touch with legal aid by phone, and i dont think her offer was any more sincere than any other offers ive gotten from people who have no patience and get angry way too easily.

i would like to just sit here and grind online poker all week and not play the machine anymore at all, to make sure i dont go below $1000 before i get into vegas, but i am running almost out of food, and Cutter wont be around anytime soon, and since he wont say where he went, im sure he went up to reno and thinks i mightve wanted to go so has decided to not say where he is when i asked. It's getting increasingly difficult to trust anyones motives, and ill tell u why in a minute or so. also i did send willCK a pm on 2+2 and he has not replied back.

I've done Kingofdonks a lot of favors in my life. not publishing certain stories about him that were embarrassing he said not to publish in my blog, removing posts he wanted removed, never giving anyone his phone number, making sure i was honest with him in all financial transactions, so i really dont understand whats going on here.

remember the Verizon internet bill KOD paid for me on april 5th for $115? and remember when i owed more in late May, and went to pay it, i owed $165 then, and accidently paid $165 when i meant to only pay $40? and i asked them to refund it, but Koala said to let it go, and i never heard another word from them, nor received a refund, and i thought, well no big deal, Koala paid it in full anyway and at least the bills now off my mind again til July 1. anyway on June 10th, Verizon suddenly reversed the charge, and lied to me saying it was the money sent back to my bank account, so i went and paid it again right back taking $115 out of my bank account trusting it to show up within a few days. Thought it really weird they waited over 3 weeks something didnt feel right. then today, im checking to see why it never came to my bank, and im told they did reverse a chargeback, but that what it was was NOT my bank account, but the american express card i used. now ive NEVER owned or used an american express, this is what KOD used to pay my bill back in April. and how would it got reversed without KOD asking to have it reversed by claiming fraud? otherwise it wouldnt be reversed, it was for a TOTALLY DIFFERENT AMOUNT than the $165 i was once trying to reverse. ($115). i specifically made clear that it was my bank, and thats why i needed it reversed in case i ended up without enough in my bank.

so i tried to give KOD the benefit of the doubt, and trusted him to call american express and fix this. however, i got this email back from him, in which it looked like he had every intention of keeping the money and making sure i never had ANY of my bill paid. its not right to pay someones bill, then suddenly take it back months later causing them to lose money out of their bank acct. the proper thing to do would been to have never paid the bill at all, its a shithouse move to take it back with no warning.
------email from KOD---
 

Tony,

It's time you realize that playing BJ in Jean is a waste of time and money. You are slowly going to $0.  You need to put your efforts on changing your situation. Maybe even find a part time job. People are no longer going to support you living in Jean and playing machines. I think you need to beg your mom to let you move back to Kansas.
-----------------------------------------------------
 
ok. now notice this email makes him look guilty. no exclamation of surprise and shock it got reversed, no offer to call american express and find out why, or more importantly, to correct the problem. its essentially admitting that he changed his mind 2 months later and decided to not pay what he paid 2 months prior. in fact, my email wasnt discussed at all.
 
so i sent other emails explaining what happened, and then i start getting these emails from him----
 
Tony,

I'm Still at work. Not sure what happened with your bill, but it's best you don't contact anymore.
--------and this email----
 
Tony,

You need some serious help. Please consider moving back to Kansas and have your mom get you help and assistance from the government. The offer for the free ticket to Kansas is still on the table. Please don't contact me or send my email address to others. Please honor this request unless your need a ticket to Kansas.
--------------------------------
the above email is basically saying i fucked u, get over it, and u are a nutcase for thinking i did anything unethical. and i later got this email
-----
 
Tony, 

I warned you to stop the threatening phone calls and harassing emails. This is my last request before I take this to law enforcement in my state and in Nevada. 

Please take my advice and seek help.

so if this was an accident, why arent u contacting american express and asking them why the charge got reversed back to ur credit card, causing verizon to then take the money from my bank account?
i would think any of my friends would understand u dont do someone a favor then take the money back with no warning and no explanation 2 months later and essentially say screw u. of course im highly upset when i log in my acct and find $115 is suddenly missing, and u were the only one who ever used an american express card to pay my internet bill------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
now as u can see, he clearly dont want to do anything to fix this, and refuses to say what happened, nor does he care in anyway about the terrible problem it caused me. and the only one violating the law making false claims of fraud is HIM. (u cant get out of paying a credit card charge by changing ur mind and lying about how the charge occured 2 months later).

i sent him this email explaining in detail, and of course, no reply at all on it.

 
take me to law enforcement?? u defrauded ur credit card company claiming a charge u made to help me out was fraudulent, because u suddenly got mad at me out of the blue 2-3 months later and wanted to try and see if u could get ur money back. here is the proof.
 
my verizon billing statement, showing the charge put on ur credit card american express april 5th, and i got an email on that date saying my bill was paid on my american express (actually not mine though).  and then it also shows on June 10th u suddenly decided to reverse the charges. which means its u who decided to commit credit card fraud. notice the payment u made apr 5th of $115.08 and then it suddenly being reversed to ur card on june 10th. the verizon representative told me u requested to have the charge reversed long after u made it. (copy of verizon statement payment history)
 
  06/13/2013  CHECKING ACCOUNT  $115.08
  06/10/2013  Reversed CREDIT CARD  -$115.08
  05/20/2013  CREDIT CARD  $165.16
  04/05/2013  CREDIT CARD  $115.08
  02/21/2013  DIRECT DEBIT  $90.29
  01/22/2013  DIRECT DEBIT  $90.49
  12/21/2012  DIRECT DEBIT  $80.49
notice the times and dates of his credit card charge in april which i talked about in my blog when it happened, and then the reversal without warning on 6-10 over 2 months later. why do someone a favor if u are only going to reverse it 2 months later? lightning and tatude seemed pretty shocked he would do this.
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

anyway i dont see at all where i did anything wrong bringing this to others attention and now ill never trust anyone to do anything for me, if anyone can get mad in the future and cause a lot of headache for me months down the road. its no wonder i have a real fear of ever believing anyone, trusting anyone or getting close to anyone and i dont see who can blame me. if he was not at fault, he wouldve immediately been trying to get this fixed.

  1. Couple thoughts:

    IF that is what happened, it is really a dick move. I can understand not wanting to give you anything, but going back in time to take back prior gifts is shitty. (notice the capital IF to start)

    Was there any obligation which you violated? I.E. I will not play machines for a week if you pay my bill?

    Also, next time you have money (another big IF), don't get tied into these crazy high bills.

    Do you find it a little ironic that you have been accused of doing the exact same thing to poker sites that has just happened to you?
    "History doesn't repeat, but it does rhyme." (Or something like that.)

    You want people to Thank YOU for taking YOUR time to better YOURSELF? LOL Maybe I misunderstood, but this help from legal aid is for you right? The fact that you did all this to "Make Jennifer happy" shows that even though you have done positive, your motives are not pure. Wonder if its because she's a she that you listened?

    Also, under the list of favours you claim to have done for KOD, you list not embarrassing him, and not fucking him in financial transactions. Do you see why most people would consider those things that you just DON'T do to friends, and not something you hold over there head.
    "Hey man, I never blackmailed you, posted your personal information on the internet, or stole your identity! You owe me!"

    I guess that is how friendship with you works?

    1. trying to sleep, no there was no actual agreement on anything other than the stake, i think i said id avoid machines and stick to poker that week. nothing about the internet bill. the evidence i have KOD is guilty is his complete refusal to talk about this, or to fix the issue, but instead asks me to never talk to him again. at first i gave him the benefit of the doubt and asked him to explain whats going on. yeah when i had auto deduct out of my bank, my bill was never even 1 day past due the 5 yrs i had the decent roll 2007-2012

    2. I'm sure the most likely scenario is that you requested a refund, they refunded the money for the wrong transaction (American Express instead of your account), and to undo the mistake would be a pain in the ass. Likely, you flipped out and sent harrassing emails and calls, based on his response. Why did you only post one of your emails and all of his?

      Saying that someone does not want to talk to you is the same as an admission of guilt is CRAZY. Saying that Jennifer should thank you for doing something for your own good and getting mad at her for not thanking you is CRAZY. To claim that you did someone a favor by not giving out their personal info (phone number) and not ripping him off in financial transactions is CRAZY,

      You are a black hole. You take, take, take and these monkeys keep giving. If people want to give to charity, find a reputable charity. Doing a favor for Tony is just asking for problems.

    3. Tony, only YOU could get yourself in the middle of this kinda shit-storm. I suspect you're not telling the whole story here - I suspect KOD is asking you not to contact him because you've been harassing the shit outta him over what could just be some kind of misunderstanding.

      You are reading things into his emails that he's not actually saying. I wouldn't be surprised if this whole cluster-fuck of a drama is somehow YOUR fault. Of course, you could never see or admit that anything is your fault, u see.

      Of course ... u see.

  2. So why is it the april 5th charge and not the may 20th one?

    And i know with my visa i can't change my mind and unpay things i agreed to pay. It doesn't work like that. I am only protected by unauthorised payments and then only for 45 days, and i have the best card you can get.

  3. My guess ...

    When you told Verizon to reverse your debit card charge, they accidentally reversed the Amex charge instead.

    KOD probably had nothing to do with the reversal.

    1. well this was 3 weeks later u see. and i had many it very clearly how i was worried i would overdraw my bank, if i didnt leave enough in it for expenses later on in the month. (but im ok now got enough in the bank). so they definitely knew the exact amount and which debit card. so this is why i figured this reversal would have to be intentionally. also due to the turn in the tone of KODs posts on RTP, i was inclined to assume the worst.

  4. Tony, why in the world would Jennifer thank YOU? You should be thanking HER. Jennifer was just tying to help you. Are you really trying to get SSI t make HER happy? Really?

  5. Give him the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he regrets giving you the money and needs the money now. Who knows? Fact is that it's your burden to pay the bills. They're in your name. You rely on the kind people here far too often, and a lot of times without thanks.

    Yes it sucks that he reneged on his generosity, which makes things even worse. But in the end, you have a $90 per month phone bill. I don't understand what kinds of things you do with a $90/month phone bill. My wife's plan is more like $50 including data. She has a droid razr. Why is your bill like double hers?

    1. its a lot nicer phone probably and the $15 a month extra is for the cost of the phone, and the other $25 a month extra is part of the 2 yr contract, prices have gone down since, so in Oct of this yr the 2 yrs ends and my bill goes down to $50 a month. also i have unlimited everything no limit to usage. also im sick of people saying i dont thank others. i do, but not make a scene of it in front of certain trolls which want me to for their enjoy at my humiliation. i do it privately with them.

    2. I will verify that Tony has been very good about saying thank you when I have given him rides, etc.

    3. and this is why i was so shocked about KOD and the reveraal and sent email and voicemail right away wanting to know why. since he let the phone go to voicemail after id sent a text first i think, i felt like i was being avoided, and especially felt this way after the first email from him, the one saying to stop begging and go back to KS. i couldnt understand it because i had often thanked KOD repeatedly for all his help, gifts and stakes. basically i felt betrayed by him, the same way id felt betrayed by claudia, so i was more upset than normal because i felt id been done wrong by a good friend. wish KOD understood this but now he dont even read this.

  6. Hopefully this gets cleared up. Generally speaking if someone gives you money they shouldn't take it back. Don't know what really happened might be a misunderstanding.
    You should be making those appointments because you want to for yourself not anyone else. Maybe Jennifer hasn't seen your post. Make sure to follow up with that. If I'm in town might be able to give you a lift there.
    I would just leave your blog alone instead of bouncing it around. Jon didnt make a bad offer and at least you had control and it was on a month to month basis. U picked up some new reades but I don't think that was a good thing. Maybe find someone you trust to help you approve comments faster. Valid complaint that it takes too long sometimes to get new comments posted.

    1. Tony, I agree waiting for you to approve comments SUCKS. I dunno if you trust me, but I'd be willing to approve them TEMPORARILY to see if that helps, cuz you sleep while we are awake.

      If you want me to attempt this, shoot me an email.

      I'm telling you right now though....I will publish most anything....unless it's uber nasty,illegal or threatening. Those I will not. You can look at them when you wake up and delete whatever you'd delete.

      We will try this for a few days and see if it drives me (or you) crazy. If you want.

  7. Well baby,you have to accept the things you cannot change and this is one of them. KofD says you threatened him. Repeatedly. Over and over. so even if this was an error you've alienated him. A result of your actions.

    Anyway, it's not as big a sum of money as you lost a few days ago on video poker. Worse is that you've lost a friend who's done a lot for you.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Tony, you told verizon to reverse a charge. Perhaps this is the charge you asked to be reversed?

    Why should Jennifer care? As I recall it was one of your readers who got through to legal aid after your ONE try. Did legal aid then not call you? You really did no work to make this appointment. You clearly stated before this appointment was arranged for you that you were finished trying. Therefore Jennifer withdrew any offers as most sane people would do.

    She tried as many others have omly to have you spit in their face because a small amount of effort from you was needed.

    1. no legal aid did not call me first. i called them first. someone did get me a different phone number, that reached a certain employee higher up DIRECTLY. and i called that number, reached that persons voicemail, and then they called me back, and thats how the appt got set up. never said to Jennifer that i was finished trying, just that i couldnt get thru by phone and would have to do it in person.

  9. woke up, seen all of these comments, but not a word from KOD. if this was an accidental reversal, u would think he would feel bad, and want to solve it instead of just saying not to talk to him, u see, its not like im asking for a favor he hasnt already done.

    1. After you threatened him Tony, he's cut off all contact.

      I'm sure there was a time when he might have tried to help, but when he didn't drop everything and help you IMMEDIATELY and you felt that threatening him was a good idea, you've ruined any chance of him lifting a finger to help you.

      I hope anyone one else thinking of helping you in any way reads this post and realizes they are only setting themselves up for this eventuality.

    2. all KOD wouldve have to do is to tell me he would get to the bottom of it immediately once he got home, instead of acting like it was no big deal, and implying i was begging him all over again. it was the email he sent about begging and living with mom and nothing about trying to find out what happened that made me explode and feel like thats plenty of evidence im being fucked. i would think KOD knows me well enough by now to know i have a hard time understanding people or issues, and need reassurance. of course ill assume the worst if he didnt really do what he told u guys in RTP he did. how could he have told me that anyway? he didnt talk to me on a phone and he sure didnt say it in an email. why believe him over me anyway? im always honest about how i feel since i dont believe in lying.

  10. Tony, people on RTP have shown that you've been trying to steal money from KOD or Koala. Not sure how you can be upset about this.

    Replies
    1. absolutely untrue, the $165 cc payment is my debit card payment, do u seriously think i wouldve wanted that sent back to the debit card had it been someone elses debit card instead of mine? of course not. the reason it looked like an intentionally chargeback is its for a totally different amount, $115 instead of $165. i explained everything to Koala in an email anyway but i think hes asleep now.

      Delete
    2. absolutely true....

      There is no question you pocketed money that KOD GAVE you meant for explicit housing expenses on two different occasions. On one you took less expensive housing, on the other you did not take the LV housing extension thereby pocketing the entire $250 earmarked for that expense.

      That is completely disgusting and dishonest. I also remember KOD sending you a stake where you withdrew the money from the site as well a little while back. Why should anyone trust you with money now?

      Delete
    3. this isnt the case, he may have spent $185, or maybe dont remember the correct amount. i got $170 from WU, maybe the rest paid the fee. my main concern was NOT taking the most expensive and nicest place, but to make sure i would be able to continue to pay it the following week, which most readers would agree to be a good idea. so i essentially stayed at the exact same place me and him discussed, only i took it with NO furniture or TV to reduce $20 a week off the rent. $154 a week is still the cheapest i can stay in vegas in a weekly if i ever return.

      and i did end up paying for one more week it wss the following week i couldnt any more. that wasnt a $250 gift, that was money i earned off the stake in the V. i took his $200 buyin and ran it up to over $760, which is why i should be in there daily winning money off tarbash. of course now i wouldnt be able to because since id be playing my own money now intead of someone elses, id be too worried about losing it. money u win from ur own play is different than money u get in a loan or gift, but that is how he suggested i use it.

      Vook and KOD both agreed i should get that money out of that online site anyway at the time. ive forgotten what site it was, maybe vook can post it.

  12. Tony, the point is HE WAS WORKING and he asked you to wait till he got off work. THEN....your next step was to harrass him with phone calls and texts, which pissed him off. No he doesn't feel bad, he feels ANGRY that you didn't listen to him when he told you to wait because he was in work. Capisce?

    Plus I'm guessing you accused him of something he didn't do.

    Replies
    1. no, as i explained to doufous below and in emails, none of this was true. i guess one thing that makes me angry is that people would actually think i would accuse KOD falsely without any evidence. (the evidence i had was KOD ignoring everything i said and only sending the email which i posted saying to stop begging). that made it look like he could care less about how i was feeling at that minute, and KOD absolutely made no promise to look into it after work. of course id have given him the benefit of the doubt had he said that to me. there were NO threatening emails or calls, that too is a lie. the only threat was to expose him. also KOD works in the banking industry and he was still claiming he was at work at after 9pm his time. am sick and tired of others thinking id bother him if he had nicely told me he would look into it and take care of it. he did not do that, all he did was say to go live with mom and stop expecting him to help. he only said in RTP he told me to wait to make himself look good to all my readers, unless he has a poor memory and thinks he said it when he didnt. i would love for me and him to both be given lie detector tests. everything ive said is 100% how i truly feel and none of my answers would come across as lies, even if they were inaccurate. KOD shouldve seen how terribly upset i was when i seen i was out the $115, and told me he would look into it when off work, and id had thanked him profusely and not mentioned it to anyone else. uve got to trust me on this.

  13. Maybe if it was an accedent YOU would want to apologize for the repeated messages to KOD after he said he would look into it after work. Not everyone has a job that gives them the flexibility like your job.

    1. i wouldve apologized profusely had he truly said that to me, but he never said that. thats an outright lie. instead all i got was the email saying i should go live with my mom and stop begging. nothing in there says anything about a mistake being made and he would look into it when he got off work. i was very deeply hurt emotionally inside because i felt like why am i being treated in this manner by someone i really trusted, and is why i was so hurt and so angry. u, and a lot of others on here, are assholes for assuming the worst about me. assuming the worst about others is ok because others basically treat me like shit and have my whole life, so its only natural for me to assume that. but for others to assume that about me when i try my best to do what i feel is right at all times? of course i wouldve felt very sorry if he wasnt to blame, but if thats the case, id only know its the case if he actually wouldve reassured me he would check into it once he got off. and no one should mind if i email multiple people at the same time. in fact, the intent was to get this fixed so i wouldnt need to bring it up on the blog. that failed big time.

  14. Hey TBC I am going to play devil's advocate and say this is a big misunderstanding. King of Donks must not have known that when the charges were reversed it would end up on his card by mistake. You could be a bigger man and ask King of Donks to forgive you. It seems that is not how you roll. Your posting seem like you always feel someone is out to get you. If they could only see your side of things maybe you could get more things done in a positive manner. Most people in the world do not drop their lives because someone is not happy with them. Just saying.

    1. i would have no problem asking KOD to forgive me if i felt he was capable of not bearing a grudge and if he was more understanding of why i felt he just got mad and wanted his money back he'd already paid. his lack of communication and reassurance is what the real issue is, maybe what it was also. i think KOD has a harder time understanding how the autism affects how i interact with others than some do. i wish KOD wouldve understood how much suddenly being out over 12% of my lifes savings affected me. had it not been such a life changing amount of money id not got so agitated and worked up.

  15. Tony I think his issue with the email was that you cc others and they got his private information. He probably doesn't want that given out to strangers. At the risk of getting caught up in this I've read his response and its not really clear if he reversed it or not. Might have missed something tho. He has helped you alot in the past could be a mistake maybe he could clear that up with you in a private email. He might not want the whole issue discussed in a forum just like some people should discuss things with you in private. Hope you guys work it out.

    1. i considered him one of the "inner circle" and had included him in group emails before, and if he objected, he never told me until now. if i send out a group email to those i trust the most, and they ignore it, then i usually dont include them in future emails.

      But people should be PROUD to receive them group emails. that means they are highly trusted and valued. grump used to do this when sending emails about me at time too.

    2. Tony wasn't picking on you it's just that sometimes not everyone wants their email out there or their might be someone on the CC list that they might not want to have their information. Just something to consider. Not a huge deal. Like I said hope u guys work it out.

  17. So you THREATENED to "expose" him on your blog. That's a friggen threat.

    1. thats what i did ask him, and he sent the email about going to live with mom and begging, and said nothing about looking into it. i was inclined to believe the worst simply because he turned against me for following Cutters and SI advice to stay in Jean so i wouldnt be homeless. before u get mad at SI, he might explain on here why he told me that when i discussed going into vegas a couple days ago. and no i didnt want it fixed immediately. all i wanted immediately was a statement it wasnt his fault and hed take care of it for me.

  18. Another shining example why I will never give Tony my name or contact information.

    Tony, have you asked Verison who asked for the charge reversal? It is your account, no one else can find that out.

    1. verizon was unable to give me that information, they claimed they didnt know. im alot more upset with verizon than i am with kingofdonks. verizon shouldve reimbursed my bank immediately, and then since koala sent the WU id have paid it right back from the bank. no need for the long wait, and having me wonder but not pursuing the issue because of Koalas payment. i probably shouldve called verizon back daily. but there is a lie on RTP. i asked for the reversal BEFORE koala offered to pay it, not after. This is WHY koala offered to pay it, he said to let the reversal go. so when i didnt see it within a day or 2, i just never discussed it with verizon again. had it not been for Koala id been calling verizon daily wondering why it hadnt been processed.

      by the way pokerdogg, u will notice i did not give out kingofdonks name or contact info in the blog even though i was quite upset at him for not being far more understanding about me being upset over this when i found out my bank was $115 short. like i said had KOD told me he would look into it when he got off work, i wouldve gave him the benefit of the doubt.

    2. Tony I did not say to you to let it go. I told you to get in touch with your internet provider and tell them to keep the money they were withholding which was taken from your bank in error and bring your account up to date. Here is a copy of that email I sent to you. The money was eventually sent to you by WU as you suggested you would hget it quicker and not have to pay fees on the international transaction. I paid all the fees.


      "Hi Tony,
      Its been a while since I last emailed you, but I have been following you closely on your blog and at RTP during your time at Jean. Glad to see you are making a bit of a comeback. I've been seriously thinking about helping you out for the past couple of months. I think that the easiest way for me to help you out would be to pay your outstanding internet account for you as a gift from one friend to another. I know that sometimes I am harsh on you, but I do it as a friend wanting to help you. If you call your internet provider and tell them to keep the whole $160.00 they withdrew, I will be prepared to send you that amount to your bank account by international transaction from my bank. I will need to know your bank account number and the account name and where your account is located in order for me to do the transfer.

      Tony this is a genuine offer from me to help you, but you must promise me that you will contact your internet provider and tell them to keep the money they were withholding and bring your account up to date. I do not want to send you money to put in machines, because I still believe you could be a better player at 1 - 2 no limit or playing on line like you have been doing. Whatever you decide please email me back so I know you received this.
      Take care my friend
      Koala (Pete)"

      I also sent you this email asking you to get things sorted out before you accused KOD of anything. Tony what you are saying you have as proof that he negated on the arrangement is no proof at all. I told you it was probably all an innocent mix up. But as usual you went on tilt and started all your ranting and raving against him. Its no wonder he doesn't want anything more to do with you. You just can't go blaming others for things that you essentially started first. At the end of the day, your phone and internet charges are your responsibility. If you let them get behind, then its your fault if things don't quite work out when others are trying to help you get out of a mess that you made.

      It was also not a very nice thing you sdaid about Jennifer. You should be eternally grateful and thankful to her for what she has done. She has no need to say thank you to you when the appopintment you made is to help yourself.

      Tony, please think about your actions before you explode into stupid reactions to something you think is the fault of others, when the only fault originally lies with you.

      Koala

      "Sorry Tony, I am confused about who paid your phone bill. If it wasn't KOD, who was it? As far as the internet bill goes, now you are saying that KOD got a payment reversed, for an internet bill he paid for you, months before I paid a later bill. Is that correct? Whatever the case is Tony, you need to contact KOD, and sort out the confusion with him why that $115 was credited back to his account. If he paid by credit card, that is the standard way it would be credited back if he is indeed claiming it was an incorrect payment. There may be some innocent mix up somewhere, so please don't accuse him of stealing or fraud until you know for sure why it was credited back to his credit card account.

    3. Tony says..."by the way pokerdogg, u will notice i did not give out kingofdonks name or contact info in the blog even though i was quite upset at him for not being far more understanding about me being upset over this when i found out my bank was $115 short. like i said had KOD told me he would look into it when he got off work, i wouldve gave him the benefit of the doubt. "

      The fact that you threatened to give out his personal info, even though this is most likely a case of mistaken action initiated by you, and your past history of disclosing even the most intimate information on your blog, means that I can never thrust you with my information.

  19. won $17 VBJ, new roll $1017. u know, if i did not ever get online, or stay in touch with the world via phone, id have no monthly expenses, no phone bills, no internet bills, and then i wouldnt be needing my bills paid. so there would be no panhandling, and no need for anyone elses assistance. But that wouldnt be fair to u guys, because then there would be no blog for u to read. sure id need food, but i could get comps thru cutter at like 30c on the dollar which benefits BOTH me and Cutter so neither one of us feels used. if i cut off the net and the cell and never got online, could live here forever without any financial support from anyone.

  20. I pay $25 a month (plus tax = around $27.50) for my cell phone with unlimited internet and 300 talk minutes per month via Virgin Mobile. I have my cell phone tethered to my laptop using an app called FoxFi that cost $9 one time. I paid $100 up front for the phone. There is no contract, so I can cancel at any time.

    I'll never understand how you manage to spend $170 or more a month on phone and internet.

    Replies
    1. well, u got to realize that at the time i started that contact with tmobile, i was much wealthier than id ever been in my entire life and i felt like my financial situation would continually improve, and there was no need to worry about the costs. and this was a very expensive phone, much more than $100. ive also been told that NO ONE who uses wifi thru their cell, is able to access Ultimate poker also. so that type of wifi isnt all that great. i would like for someone to show me how its done, but no one with the tech know how ever has been willing to come out to Jean and do that. i wonder if very few actually have that tech know how but u and grouchie. the reason my net is $90 again instead of $80 this month is listening to too much music again thru utube.

      i did learn one good thing, i logged into my tmobile to find out just how much id owe this month, and im still good til the following month. (was thinking i have a $54 charge, but instead i have $5 remaining credit). Only real bill and major issue coming up is the internet needs paid again by july1.

      how would u suggest someone permanently get out of the verizon modem contract started last summer in st louis thats also for 2 yrs? without ruining their credit with any other company i might need someday?

      Delete
    2. You were so wealthy you thought spending over $3000 on phone and internet in 2 years was a good idea? I'll spend less than $800 in that time. I can think of a lot of things I could spend $2200 on! Being wealthy doesn't mean you should waste money on things. Most people get wealthy by not spending all their money stupidly.

      Do you realize that I make more in two months than you've ever had at one time in your entire life? Yet I feel like overpaying for cell phone and internet service is silly. $15,000 is not wealthy. I have $15,000 in my emergency fund in case something happens, like I am unemployed for a little while or something unforeseen happens. And that's barely enough, financial experts recommend 6 months worth of expenses.

      You can't connect to Ultimate Poker either, so what difference does it make? I'm sure I could connect with my setup if I were in Vegas. But solving problems like that is my job.

      A contract is your word that you will pay, every month until the contract is finished. Failing to pay is exactly the same as lying. Making a deal with Verizon is the same as making a deal with a person. You live up to your deal, no matter what. If you don't have the money to pay, you get it, somehow, anyhow. Even if it means getting a minimum-wage job. That's what a responsible adult does. I know there are lots of people who think it's okay to run out on a contract and just ruin their credit. They're wrong, it's not okay. A contract is EXACTLY THE SAME as giving your word as a man. There is usually a way to buy your way out of the contract, but that's usually not worth it. Just live up to your end of the deal until it's over, and never make that mistake again.

      At least listen to music via Pandora instead of youtube. It uses a lot less bandwidth so you will not cause overage charges.

      When your contracts are over, don't ever sign another one. There are plenty of good phone and internet options out there that don't require a 2 year commitment. Most technology is obsolete after 12-18 months, so you are really screwing yourself when you lock yourself in. Do everything pre-paid monthly. Then you can dump it if it sucks or you lose the phone or you find a better deal or you decide you can't afford it anymore.

  21. I would bet a $100 that this is what went down:

    Tony went on tilt a couple days ago and lost a bunch of the sockroll playing VP VBJ... He figured he call the phone company and get KODs payment reversed, but to HIS (Tony's) card, not KODs. The person at customer service was either ignorant of how things work, or misunderstood. They indeed reversed the charge, BUT to the original card. Just a theory.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 100% NOT TRUE. the attempted reversal was before i ever talked to Koala. of course theres no way they would put kingofdonks payment on my bank card, and then my internet wouldve been immediately cut off due to being overdrawn. in fact it was, and i got it fixed by putting it on my bank card again. (at the time, i thought the other $115 was still on its way to my bank, but i did ask them why they sent it 3 weeks later and they had no answer for me).

      the real problem is the first verizon rep lied to me and said the money had been sent back to my bank, when that never happened, and instead it was sent to KOD american express. had i known this, i wouldve contacted KOD about 1-2 days SOONER to find out what happened.

      Delete
    2. You do realize that people make errors and aren't always dishonest, or trying to get a piece of the sockroll, right? Why would a Verizon employee willfully lie to you about this? Wanting to get fired?

      Delete
    3. i dont think the verizon employees lied intentionally, i kept getting shuttled from one employee to another over multiple days of different calls, at the begining in May and then at the end in June, and i think they were all mixed up as me as to why it was reversed.

      Delete
  22. Here's what I think happened:

    You contacted KoD and told him you got a payment reversed on your Verizon account.

    He had no idea what you were talking about, so he assumed you were just begging for more money from him and he told you he wasn't going to give you any more money and if you were broke you should go back to Kansas.

    This made you angry because he wasn't acting like this was important to him (because it isn't) even though it's really important to you. You incorrectly assume that he reversed the charges intentionally to make you mad.

    He was probably busy and getting upset with your attitude when you started to call, text and email angry messages accusing him of being dishonest, so he told you to leave him alone and not contact him any more.

    After what I'm betting is more than a dozen attempts to get him to respond, you started emailing all your friends about this terrible injustice that has been done to you. Tragically you probably asked them all for advice on the best way to fix the situation, but you had already screwed it up too much to fix.

    Sound about right?

    Replies
    1. well i didnt think that at first, but now that ive had time to think about it, u are somewhat right. most of ur summary shows an understanding of the situation. The tone of KOD's posts on RTP had taken such a negative turn, its no wonder i was inclined to think the worst. especially when i was getting different stories from verizon, depending on which operator was on the line. anyway KOD shouldnt be too mad, essentially he got refunded by me of all the money he paid on my internet bill. by the time i sent out all those emails to those i trusted most, he was already too upset with me.

      i do feel however, that KOD should understand how much that $115 meant to me, (seeing it was what dropped me to under $1000) (essentially the panic level) that KOD shouldve known it would upset me far more if he did me wrong than a random stranger asshole from RTP, and that i get riled up easily when id just lost $144 on the VBJ right before i went to my room, and then noticed the additional loss. Had it not been for the email saying NOTHING about my concern over the chargeback, (that id mentioned on the phone) but only saying to move to KS and stop begging, naturally it made it look intentional. that was what was freaking me out. at first i expected KOD to either call me right back, or send me an email telling me not to worry and hed look into it when he got home. what made me hit the panic button was the feeling he seemed like he was glad it was happening.

      if pokerdogg understands autism he will realize people with autism cannot read other peoples emotions and feelings (such as claudias) so how would i be able to read KOD, or know what to say to him. im not good at talking to others when im angry. everyone knows i see the world differently than everyone else, and am very paranoid others are out to do me unfairly if they get mad at me. and i thought he was mad that all he did for me in vegas didnt get me into permanent housing and permanent return to poker again, and had essentially given up on me ever getting back on my feet. i am not sure how to apologize to him, and im a little upset hes not reading the comments here to try to understand it better. i feel people give up on me way too easy, such as Jennifer, and is why i value the friendship of lightning, Josie, and seattle irish so much. and i wish Grump had not left town, he was also someone i felt i could talk to til he lost interest in blogs.

      and this is why i believe in Christianity so much. the message of forgiveness, and repentance, and redemption for those truly sorry and willing to change. for i am one of the worst of sinners, and God is the only hope for me. and with the aspergers trying to change is much more difficult. ive only known one way of life, and it wasnt a bad life til i got too short of money.

      Delete
    2. Tony, I understand it is hard for you to read other's emotions and feelings, that is why it is important for you to paid extra effort and consciously think about each situation before reacting. You need to work harder, not less, because of your autism. You need to know that others see the world differently than you, and really really work hard to trying to imagine what other's perception of your actions. You need to learn to adapt to the world, as much as the world should try to adapt to you.

      Tony says..."and this is why i believe in Christianity so much. the message of forgiveness, and repentance, and redemption for those truly sorry and willing to change..."

      If you truly believe in this, than think of this before thinking the worst of KOD (or anyone else) when a problem arise, and don't fly off the handle and make yourself sound like an incoherent madman. You could have avoided this whole mess if you just took the time to think before you act, and give KOD a chance to figure out what the hell you were panicing about.

      Delete
    3. i think i shouldve been more patient with KOD, but the email about begging caused me to assume the worst. i would assume had u got that email, ud have got the same impression i did. its all verizons fault for getting mixed up and waiting over 3 weeks. and i dont know how to fix things with KOD. he shouldnt really be too unhappy since he gained $115 out of the deal.

      Delete
    4. I assume my assumption would be very different than yours regarding that email.

    5. By the way, do you really think that $115 makes one bit of difference to him in this?
