"Hey Rick, it seems false to me! I've Got a Buddy Who's an Expert in Acorn" cit.  But is a scam?

It is simple enough if the Acorns  do not get delivered and no refunds are issued to those that were allowed to apply for refunds then it will be a scam.

If the gear sent to Europe and already pre paid vat is charged again then those buyers would need a refund for the 2x vat if not it will be a scam.

For now as of today it has not been determined what will happen here.

But I certainly won't send in more orders.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

It would be nice if someone at Squirrel Research even acknowledge us, tell us our refunds are on the way and for Acorns are coming out for the people that waited.

I go to discord  every day and thursday we were told squirrel refunds should happen the week of Oct 22- Oct 26th.

I can say both of my orders are marked paid and there is zero evidence on the squirrels website that I asked for a refund.
I did do multiple screen shots as I filled in the request of the refund.
So I have evidence on my pc that I asked for a refund.
No acknowledgment that I sent a survey in was ever sent to me.
So I will wait and see what they do.

Almost like the invaluable insight that can only come from someone that didn't order the product and knows nothing about it but somehow feels the need to post anyway. Simply priceless...

ive been following this from the beginning bruv. There's a reason i never bought into this. 1) that it didnt seem much use for ETH mining (or too expensive to be worth it), and 2) no CC buy option.

it's obvious that my sarcasm in the my first post went over your and Jocoloko's heads.

THIS IS WHY YOU DONT BUY SHIT WITH CRYPTO. If you had a CC buy option, you can do a chargeback as a last ditch effort when the totally trustworthy guys give you the runaround when you want your money back.

Christ, people. PT Barnum was right.

Christ, people. PT Barnum was right.

Everyone in crypto is preaching adoption and actual real-world use, yet when it comes to it you people want to hide behind your credit cards so you can charge back when shit goes south. People were emailed and asked to confirm if they still wanted their products or a refund. This isn't a scam its just the hardware industry being itself with all the delays as usual.

"us people" are the ones not losing our ass in scams either.

I'll take that.

there's three separate threads here involving some kind of FPGA group buy, and they are all gigantic train wrecks.

This is not a scam as of today.  So don’t call it a scam.

I truly expect to be refunded next week.

Do you read discord if you did you would not post it as a scam.

What I will say it has been less then desired in terms of running it.

I truly do think they will deliver the gear and make the refunds no later then Veterans Day .

I did and a few are upset about the delay, a few are upset about no potential refund, but looking to hear from those that have been in the game for a while and have seen scenarios like this. Yes at a glance, everything tells me to wait and see how things evolve. but still curious.

You have assessed correctly.

read my words more carefully. i never directly called this a scam (yet).

i was merely making the implication that the attitude of avoiding people who will only accept crypto as payment keeps us out of scams.

i hope people do get their money back.

They tried to use credit card and paypal both as payment options but it was refused by the banks and paypal since it was crypto related.  That's even although this company does tens of millions of $ in sales every year with these same banks etc...  Banks hate anything they can't control and there are also allot of scams in crypto so they just said no to all of it.

That left ACH wire transfers and Crypto as the only available payment options.

It goes like this:

-August: was told No Acorn refunds, under any circumstance.  2 months later refunds for everyone (dont know why)
-BCU refunds still not processed
My personal experience.  I dont see anything shady though - people forget this was a *group buy* for the BCUs.  We will see what happens.  I hope I get my refunds.  Its been a long time.
