Here is the real problem.

Someone pm's you and asks to pay through the mail. Like this:

You agree... that is mistake #1.

They take 2 spots and you put them in the break... that is mistake #2.

The time for random comes and you either have to make everyone else in the break wait... or you trust the guy to pay.

You can see where this is going, right?

Instead of making everyone wait, I decided to trust this new member. I requested the random BEFORE his payment arrived (let alone cleared)... that is mistake #3

Well, he doesn't get spots #1 and #2 with his 2 spots. (#225 and #423 out of 516)

Can you guess what happens next? You can, right?

So what is the moral of this story?

When you see this, have ample time for the payment to arrive or just say no.

Sure, he's a wretch for what he did, but I was stupid to allow him the room.

I won't be making that mistake again.
