    $800 worth? What a noob your scammer was, he should have waited for the price drops. As of now you have $600 of fraudulently ordered phones in your office, and I'm hoping the price drops to $200 (per...

    I think y'all might be hurting RJ's feelings. Maybe we should all find a day to ride together and show that snowsliding transcends trollery. As long as we can pick a hill in the NW, that is.
