The sad saga of GPal continues. Even without visiting CalGuns, which has become the clearing house for GPal woes, you can find a lot of info on the web about GPal. Robb has thoughts, Sailorcurt does as well, and a google search for GPal Fraud or something along those lines will lead you to hours and hours of entertaining reading. The latest development is that they’re hiring “additional tech support”, which is great and all except tech support doesn’t cut checks. That’s what you need a temp accounting firm for – you hand them a book of names that you owe money to, and say “cut these people checks most rickey-tick”.
I personally have had 1 interaction with GPal. When they first showed up as “GunPal”, I rolled my eyes and thought the name was stupid, when they changed over to GPal I figured I’d try and register. What a nightmare that was. Like most auto-deposit systems, they send two small deposits to your checking account for verification purposes. Except that GPal sent 6 small deposits, and then locked my account. So I figured if they can’t get that right, there was no way I was letting them at my cash.
Bottom line? Right now, something is rotten in Denmark. GPal continues to dodge and evade – instead of cutting checks and getting people the thousands of dollars they’re owed, they’re hiring tech support? In the words of my people: “that dog don’t hunt”.
