    Hard to consider a couple of years "old," but I'll take it :)

    Is this something to worry about?

    Yeah this was the reason I wanted to double check Adam's email with the members here yesterday. The thing with this situation is that if there is an imposter who took over Adam's email, we wouldn't know until December. I wish there was a phone number on the Alden of Carmel website to confirm, but there doesn't seem to be one. I was assured by Mike that the email is indeed Adam's, but the email could have been hacked? Where is Alden of Carmel? I thought it was in California, but the address that Adam told me to send the check is in Washington.

    http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/the_alden_of_carmel_story.htm#s_55

    If you look at the "The Alden of Carmel Story", it looks like they are located in Carmel, CA and they make references to La Jolla, which is in the San Diego area. So I'm wondering why Adam wants me to send a check to a location in Washington. I looked up the address on Google Maps and did a street view and it looks like there's a gas station and a mini-mall.

    I think I want the Alden Ravello LWBs so much that I am wishing that this is the real deal, but the detective in me is sensing that things just aren't adding up...

    Oh ok good. I think I'm just paranoid. Are they located in WA? I wish there was more information on the site.

    Adam started Alden adventure in La Jolla, CA and then moved up to the Monterey area (to Carmel). He closed down his brick-and-mortar shop a few years ago and now does online and mail order only. I found that out about 2 years ago when I was going to drive from San Fran to Carmel to get to the store that did not exist, fortunately, I figured it out hours before when I was trying to find the address to put into my iPhone (GPS)...

    I can tell you for sure that I talked to the real Adam yesterday, because we talked about only things he would know of. As per my prior post, he started in La Jolla (near me!), moved to Carmel, CA (near Monterey), and now resides outside of Seattle, where he just does online sales... I have sent money to him (usually via Credit Card via his website) and poof, a few days later a magical green box shows up at my door...

    Did you mention to him that he should change his email PW? I'm also about to send some money over for a pair of new gunboats =)
