It is simply unacceptable to delay payment without my knowledge.
Without your knowledge?
They announced the Bank account problems on August, 5th (a week ago...):http://tradehillblog.com/
They wrote emails:https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=34684.0
Did you even try to contact them about your problem?
I was counting on that money to arrive before this weekend for expenses next week. Now i am left empty handed, no bitcoins, no check, and i will not be able to make a necessary payment on time because of their misguidance.
Lol...sry but that's your fault. Never spend money you don't have. That's like "Ah, i'll buy that new car because i get the job tomorrow. [Next Day] . What?! I don't get the job?"
Also, what kind of "necessary payment" would that be? Do you hold your entire money in Bitcoins? Unlikely.
Why are my finances any of your business Corporal LeFBI Douche? Just to prove your ignorance, here is my situation.
I have necessary expenses to attend the bitcoin conference, and i am waiting for money earned from bitcoin to do that. Contrary to your naive assumptions, i do not mix my bitcoin finances and my US currency funds. If i take a bitcoin related trip, BTC pays for it. If i expand my mining ops, BTC pays again. The same applies for my business and personal finances.
Learn from this and you will prosper.
In regards to those postings, not once was it mentioned that there would be check payment delays. What's more is that on the withdrawal info page they claim that checks are mailed out daily and if my check was mailed out when promised, it would have arrived by now.
As a followup, i wanted to share that Francisco from tradehill has contacted me directly and worked everything out personally. I thank him for the good customer service, and will be meeting him next week in NYC.
