This involves an individual named devchelle2 and this person runs a charity called ‘Madness, Mayhem and Charity’. It annually raises money for a research organization thats been developing a vaccine for HIV. They’ve raised a lot of money and I do NOT take this away from them. In this regard they’ve done a lot of good, however it has recently come to my attention that this guy has some serious ethical issues. This is a problem especially since he’s involved in raising tens of thousands of dollars.
What started it all was I watched the 3rd and final Presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Trump began discussing Hillary’s emails that were published by Wikileaks and as usual she did the ‘Russia did it‘ blame game. At the time of writing this blog they have yet to reveal any hard evidence.
Even if the accusations were true, in my honest opinion that is a secondary issue. The primary issue in a lot of people’s view (mine included) is that these leaked emails have revealed systemic corruption with the 2-party system in the United States. I tried my best to clearly tweet out that viewpoint. Unfortunately with Twitter’s pesky 140 character limit you can only express yourself so well.
Basically he thinks I’m some sort of unpatriotic sycophant for the Kremlin, blah blah blah. All because I had the “audacity” to think outside this 2-party box that the mainstream media tries so hard to keep us in. Every-time a serious revelation is made on the establishment, the corporate media will say, “Hey look Justin Bieber got arrested again” or in this case “Hey look Russia”. Like i basically said in my tweet it’s all a big distraction…
Normally a person like this would have been instantly blocked but since we had known each other a while I figured I’d try to reach out. Get him to calm down and see things from my viewpoint. LOL, what a waste of time!
I was getting sick of this and suddenly remembered how he had dicked me around a while back with a falsely advertised eBay auction on his MMC charity fundraiser. So i angrily tweeted this out
Afterwards he starts asking me to back up what i was saying and to explain. Fair enough i made the accusation so it was my responsibility to prove it.
Initially I wasn’t upset about not receiving 2 paintings, just kinda bummed. However, when I tried contacting he ignored me repeatedly. In fact, it wasn’t until I had to put him on the spot while doing a livestream was when he finally replied and said it wasn’t his problem. This is where I started to get pissed cuz he clearly didn’t give a shit about his donors getting screwed.
Don’t play that non-liability blame game like big corporations do. You’re not a corporation, you’re a flesh and blood human being. If you own a restaurant and your cook is not preparing the steaks well-done. When the customers come to complain about pink being in the middle, are you gonna tell them, “Oh I’m not the cook, I’m only the owner of this shit-hole. You need to go to the kitchen and take that up with my cook!”
That kind of nonsense just damages you and your charity’s name and frankly it’s a great way to make enemies. And how the way you talked to me last night, you certainly made an enemy out of me…
Motherfucker I tried contacting multiple times and was blown off. It never would have became a big deal if you got back to me and at least showed an ounce of responsibility. Just you merely trying to figure out what happened or a simple apology would’ve gone a long way but nope not even that…
I was watching last night’s debate, minding my own fucking business and suddenly I’m attacked publicly and unprovoked for over an hour by someone I hadn’t heard from in 2 years. Not a “hi”, “hello” or “how have you been”.
I kept quiet on this auction scandal because I’m smart enough to see the repercussions this could have on the charity. However, after how he acted last night I think the world needs to know what this guy is like.

I didn’t want to spend another $40 on a case, especially for a phone that’s now a backup since I just got the new iPhone 6s Plus. So I start searching around on eBay and immediately found a seller who was asking $12 for it.
After digging around, I found another eBayer selling the same case for $9.99
Then I searched ebay deeper and found one for $8.33 but there was no ‘Buy It Now’ option. So I placed my bid and during the last hour of the auction, someone outbids me. Understandably I was disappointed at this point and I was thinking about giving up and just buying from the guy selling it at $9.99
I decided to scour eBay one more time and sure enough I found another seller wanting the same case for $7 and included the ‘Best Offer’ option. I send him my offer price of $6 but he just lets me sit there for almost 24 hours and doesn’t respond.
After getting tired of waiting, I found yet another eBayer selling a case made by the same manufacturer but it was the higher model# case that retails slightly higher ($45) than the one i was shopping for. He was asking $6.49 and had the ‘Best Offer’ option available.
I didn’t want to risk pissing the seller off by low balling him cuz I’ve been at this for 2 days. I didn’t think i’d find a deal better than this, so I made an offer of $6 and within 10 minutes the seller accepts.
$45 protective case for $6!
Number 1 tip saving money on eBay? Patience and lots of it!
