Random quote: I would smoke a cigar once in a while, but mostly cigarettes. I was lucky. I just stopped smoking cigarettes and went back to cigars. - Raul Julia

As much as it pains me to say it, I believe the infamaous Mr. Paul Iannetti (user name paulian3) seems to have scammed us. He gained our trust as a member of the site and seemingly walked away with 2 cigar passes at the same time. I am fairly sure that his real name is Paul Iannetti and I believe we have mentioned his name enough in this thread that the various search engines on the internet over time will score this thread as a hit when his name is searched. People that may have any future associations with this person can perhaps gain an understanding of his character. It is a shame that someone would go through this kind of trouble just to get some free cigars.

Multiple attempts to try to contact Paul via various emails have yielded no replies. His last logon on this site was 8/19, which was roughly when he walked away with the passes. This seems to be more than enough time for him to reply or make good on the passes. I therefore have made the decision to give him the dubious honor of the first banned member of Cigar Geeks.

It is amazing to me that he would do this over a couple hundred dollars worth of cigars. I for one have never been big on burning bridges especially over something so small but maybe he has other ideas. Well, what comes around goes around I believe so I hope he is ready when he gets his.

If you are OK posting his name. why not his two known email addies? How about his home address or at least his hometown?

Actually yes. I can't speak to the value of the other pass but I know when I sent my pass out it was over $100 in value.

I should add that it's easy to rejoin with a different name. He might already have done that just to monitor our reactions. Just to know if we're sending a posse, so he can skip town if necessary.

Too bad there isn't some legal recourse. I feel bad for you guys who lost those cigars you had invested into the pass. Also for the trust you invested because that is a commodity that you can't put a price on.

Perhaps a new member must start a cigar pass first before participating in future passes. Granted, not everyone is as petty as unethical as Paul but it may be a good idea.

I'm tracking that possibility. There are ways to monitor for that. That's not to say it's impossible but it would be a fair amount of trouble to try to fake joining again without showing your previous identity.

Some kind of qualification process seems to make sense.
