DoC, with all due respect, and appreciation for the many significant contributions you make to this travel/credit/hacker space, since when do you follow the criteria that you only post about something if you actually use it?

Moreover, ThePlasticMerchant has been a regular subject of this forum, including it’s previous relatively minor problems. You’ve often featured posts on gift card exchanges, and your many Amazon and Ebay posts (with your referral links on them) are meant primarily, no doubt, for those of us actively involved in gift card trading. (In fact, Mike @ TPM back when he used to send out alerts about gift card deals would often favorably reference DoctorofCredit — almost as if you, or one of you was already in the TPM fold.

Ah, the fact that TPM was showing SEVERE signs of distress deserved at least an alert from you. Mark O. over at MilestoMemories could also have copped out and said, I don’t do business there, so no need to post about it. Instead, he posted an early “public service announcement,” recognizing (as you should have) that a lot of readers in this space would have a serious “interest” in the subject. DDG picked it up within the hour…. I nearly listed over 1k of BB cards on TPM — but luckily caught Danny’s post, and spared me that loss.

Your venerable site has for a year or so been (for a lot of us) a first-stop, go-to-site for monitoring developments all across this realm, especially for those of us who have lives elsewhere. 🙂 You earned that. But no more…. You really let us down by avoiding even a short, basic PSA post on this.

Do hope you’ll rethink the really lame excuse that you don’t use TPM (??) or that you had nothing to add….. If that’s your new stock criteria, this no longer will be a go-to site.

No one cares that you’re outraged.

Really? troll. This wasn’t about me….. it’s about DoC dropping the ball and not caring about his readers. Hell of a lot of TPM individual customers are now out thousands, with no likely recourse…. Happens I was largely spared — thanks to an alert from other web sites. That DoC chose to stay silent…. yes, as you say, maybe he (like you) didn’t care..

The man is/was on vacation. Nobody is responsible for keeping the public informed on a third party’s status to begin with, much less when they’re trying to take a vacation. I’m sure DoC will be happy to refund you the fee you’ve paid for using this site…

Could not disagree with you more about doc not caring about readers. This site puts in more effort than any of us would. Have to do DD when it comes to this stuff.

-1 Please stop reading DOC then – I’m sure he’ll refund your membership fee.

“[D]ropping the ball”? LOL. Show me where that clause is in the contract that this site is obligated to report/alert on each and every one of such incidents, however unfortunate/widely-impacting it might be.

You have to do your own DD and not rely on Doc for everything.

I don’t think Doc is in the business of criticizing or endorsing other small businesses. And I’ve never seen a post from him on TPM or any other exchanges. Chuck will sometimes reference “private buyers.” I don’t think Doc did anything wrong.

Rather than just complaining why didn’t you email him and request a story about it? DoC puts out 6+ posts EVERDAY, they can’t cover everything. If you are interested in something then message him. Clearly (as the comments below show) people know that DoC can’t be the source of everything so do your own due diligence. If DoC doesn’t use the service then how much information can they have about what goes on??

The problem is with you when you allow your self to rely on others for everything.

DoC is an incredible team! He sacrificed profit and selling out to give people somewhere you can trust. He has no obligation to remind you selling GCs through a 3rd party with a history of bounced checks and poor communication may be risky and repeat the same history in the present.

Wow! Literally every “verdict” section is designed to help readers evaluate an offer. I don’t know how he could care about readers anymore than he does. To second the point @ferris made, Will turns down an amazing amount of money in referral links to remain unbiased and more reader friendly.

Will deserves an apology for the insult.

Isn’t it illegal to not accept cash as payment? I recall reading somewhere that a creditor must absolve a debtor of their debt if they’re not willing to accept legal tender

This is an AML implementation. Haven’t read the story above but you are still able to make cash payments at ATMs with daily limits. A pin (identification) is required.
