Update as of December 8th 2013 –
We do not need the state, and with both a refund and apology accepted I would like to say thank you to those who make voluntaryism and agorism possible WITHOUT THE STATE! A refund has been processed and the individual apologized for the problem. Solution, acceptable and complete. Thank you!
Over the course of the last several months after being contacted by A.B.Dada to assist with getting shirts out for Liberty Practical Training the relationship has been at best rocky. The initial order was made, funds transferred and over two months later the wrong order showed up at the door. Because extra shirts had been thrown in to the mix I failed to address it at that time, putting it down to problems that occur from time to time.
The second order I made was for more shirts and a very specific shipping detail. Part of what he advertises on 7bucktee is $5 shipping and shipping from the location of printing to the customers. This is what really drew me to use his business, that and the simple fact that he is quite likeable and accepts and promotes bitcoin and other alternative currencies. This order was made October the 4th of 2013 and as you can see in the following picture payment from myself was promptly delivered.
Again per his website and his multiple promises that price covered the following order as seen in the attached picture. He also promised delivery within eight days, promise linked here and available via google cache if he removes it. All documentation has been backed up, traced and IPs logged for purposes of preventing the potential for loss. At this time while I am saddened at the lack of communication and the disdain with which this individual has treated myself as well as many others I know personally, I am not in favor of releasing said information to the public. I do have it and will gladly release it should it progress past this stage.
Because this individual claims to be a liberty supporting, anarcho capitalist of sorts and has a very pleasant personality it is easy to grant him the chance to prove himself. Unfortunately, his chances have run out. I have attempted nicely to have him at least return the monies taken as the product does not at this time exist and is really no longer necessary. His responses have been at best vague and with his current whereabouts overseas unknown I believe that any further communication should be through a mediator.
I would suggest that no one else do business with him at this time. The reality of this situation is that while the actual amount of $100 is quite small, I made promises to deliver shirts based on monies received, this shirt order was not fulfilled and I refunded a large amount of money as a result. I also have lost credibility with some in the community because he has not fulfilled his side. While I did refund monies, my integrity will now be in question with others. Additional losses as a result of this are engagements that I had secured with the individuals rightly questioning my ability and desire to fulfil as a result of something so simple as a tshirt not being delivered. Again, all monies have been refunded, however, this alone cannot make up for the losses received as a result of someone who claims to be a freedom lover. His actions do not reflect his words.
I believe quite strongly that A.B. Dada should be ostracised and his business ventures (of which he has many) should be avoided by all within the liberty community. He enjoys spending and using the money paid to him, but obviously cannot fulfil a simple agreement. Until he fulfils the purchase and or refunds the monies as well as a public apology to those whom I have failed by not fulfilling my end of a deal, (even though money has been refunded) he does not rate even a simple nod.
If anyone should wish to act as mediator and or if he contacts you as a result of this article and offers a rebuttal, by all means please let me know. As of four days ago after failing to keep a promised phone call he has not responded. If this becomes any larger then it currently is I will gladly release every single email, message and record of conversation that we have had with regards to this business transaction which he has failed to uphold and complete. All pictures are public domain, all additional information is readily available via google cache or any one of his many public networking profiles. A.B. Dada is a simple google search away, and his fingers in quite a lot of pies, happy I am for him, saddened that he is unable to complete a simple business deal that he committed to.
Free the mind and the body will follow.
