    Thanks for clearing this up, Tim. I know you and would validate your word any day of the week (twice on Sundays).

    Why hasn't "AB" been added yet? Just wondering.

    Because it was unclear whether he was knowingly involved in this or another unlucky guy. His refusal to reply has made that irrelevant. Beyond that, I hadn't brought him up for review yet, whereas I had carte blanche approval from the rest of the committee for the other two guys a while ago.

    Actually, this can be dated somewhat to the creation of p-u-f-f-.-c-o-m!

    As I look at all the folks involved who believe the smokes are legit...they are all(most) friends from CS and now a new board.

    When the gates opened to those who left the 'takeover', those in tenure and others were asked to go easy. The outcome is getting more clear.

    ....change just is!

    I'm very happy to see Tim come and give us his take from his end of the situation. Thanks bro.

    Van55, I think your opinion is valid in this. :p

    Smoke them, and enjoy them for what they are. From the way it sounds these aren't terrible cigars by any means, just not what they were purported to be.

    Thank you for posting... I think that given that you are a victim as well, posting the contact information you have for AllenB in this thread would be useful, to give those who are aggrieved a channel to pursue for refunds.

    If AllenB refuses refunds, and people complain, perhaps he can be added to the Scumbags list as well.

    That amounts to "be quiet, take it up the ass, and try to smile whilst doing so"... for people who are out a lot of money because of this fiasco, I think that's probably not on the top of their list of things to do.

    If it were me, I'd be getting in touch with AllenB.

    ...or Tim could act as an intermediary, working on behalf of those that bought cigars here to square it away with AllenB. :thumbs:

    Has anyone received AllenB's contact info from Tim? If not, I don't understand the reluctance in releasing AllenB's contact info? I would think that if you were also a victim, then this is a no brainer. PM the info to those who bought from you if you feel that publicly posting the info is wrong.

    I have asked several people and haven't gotten it yet. I have some folks looking into it who know him better

    Also fwiw it is my understanding that Allan has been aware of these threads since they began and has been active on private boards since.

    Thanks for your input, Van, however infrequent.

    The fact is he didn't know anything about these cigars other than the collector from whom he bought them (and now all of us regarding the low temperature, low humidity storage conditions).

    Believe what you may, but AB wasn't a perpetrator of anything nefarious. Just a collector who had to move most of cigars due to the recession and I'll stand by any reputation that I have here at CP regarding this topic

    Damn Bobby, well I've gotta respect that commitment. :thumbs:

    What's the next step thus far, Phil? Where is this whole investigation at now?

    Do you believe that Allen should be offering refunds for the cigars he sold? If not him, them whom?

    Pretty Much Bruce, but I doubt that is going to happen.
