If I were Cletus, I would just drop the whole idea and trash Randyrun.com. This is so not worth the effort to pull myself out of bed and write this latest post. I threw up twice a few hours ago and NO, YOU BASTARDS AT WOWMINE, THSALE, BROGAME, IGXE, OOFAY AND SWAGVAULT, I AM NOT DYING! I MAY BE VERY SICK BUT I AM NOT DYING SO YOU MAY STOP PARTYING NOW!
Since Randyrun has no live chat support (aaaaarrrgghhh!), I was forced to email them the questions that had been gnawing at me:
Subject: Delivery Questions
Please answer the following questions:
1. Why do you charge delivery fees for the gold to be sent via in-game mail or, um, mule account?
2. Why should I trust you with my account name and password? I don’t even trust my own brother enough to give him my Social Security number.
3. Why 72 hours for delivery? Other sites can deliver within 24 hours.
4. Who’s Randy?
Extreme Gold Fan
AND THIS IS THEIR REPLY:

Subject: RE: Delivery Questions
1. The mule account fee is for the cd key we use to create the new account. Ingame mail sometimes get deleted by Blizzard so we want to discourage this. We have no trouble at all with the delivery on account method.
2. We need this for the delivery on account so we can create a new character on your account and trade with the supplier.
3. WoW gold is usually delivered within 24 hours. Where does it say 72 hours? That should be corrected then.
4. No one, it’s just the name of our website.
Thanks for your trust in our service!
Grazie per la vostra fiducia nel nostro servizio!
Here are my thoughts:
1. It sounds like an all-out scam. Be very afraid, kiddies.
2. The idiot who sent this reply has not been reading the copy on their site. Helloooo, genius, why don’t you try visiting your tacky site? You’ll see there the text that reads: "The delivery of the World of WarCraft gold generally takes place within 72 hours."
This is jaw-dropping, Randy my man. First you have the audacity to ask for account names and passwords, and then you have the unmitigated gall to make your customers wait for 72 hours. Yeah, that’s just about enough time for you to run off with their accounts and everything else they hold dear.
Am I still going to order? I know it’s Cletus’ money that’s at stake but…
Cletus is my friend.
And he’s saved me from so many sticky situations…like the time I stupidly agreed to go on a blind date with this girl and Cletus agreed to take my place.
Of course, I didn’t tell him that the girl’s father was indicted for murder and had connections with the underworld. He would have backed out if I had told him, right? And besides, the girl was nice and all so there’s no truth in the old saying about how the fruit doesn’t fall too far from the tree. I just didn’t want to spend the night looking over my shoulder checking to see if there’s someone about to charge at me with a baseball bat.
To order or not to order, that is the burning question.
Lemme think about it after I throw up. Excuse me, kiddies.
