    It's been a couple weeks since the last reply was added, but I thought I would add.

    As some of you are aware, I've been noticeably absent from BA for several months. A kind BA pointed me in this direction in late June - said it was a must read. It definitely was.

    Only really came here to add that I've recently found out that I know someone (else) impacted by this guy, in a trade that was not already posted here. So, add another tally to this dickhead's numbers. It was also a BA trade.

    I have an interesting bit to add as I used to proxy for Raj with his Societe du Chene membership with Perennial. I currently have his 2019 Maman and 2 bottles of the Anniversari blend. I know he would be so happy to send these to those affected. @Rustytacos would love to send one of these beers as well as 2 others if I can. Not sure how we figure who gets the Maman but its the least I can do

    Definitely think Rusty is deserving of the Maman. He's been ISO it like crazy recently and he was the one that exposed the man!

    I appreciate it, I'm just happy to help get some of Raj's beers into the hands that deserve them!

    Most importantly: that's really generous of you to reach out and put a kind gesture on the end(?) of this shitty saga! What a great reflection of the selflessness of the community in general that tends to outweigh the selfishness.

    As an aside, purely in terms of my curiosity (that I don't think I'm alone in wondering): have you had any interaction with Raj since this all went down?... any updates?

    So I actually texted him recently about these bottles but got busy building my deck and forgot to follow-up with him, then I saw this whole thread and let him know that after talking to friends at both Perennial and SP, that I won't be sending him these bottles and would be sending them to people affected by this BS. So far the text has been read/seen but he hasn't responded since that was sent 3 hours ago

    I just don't have the energy to go back and read this thread tonight, or any night soon. But I'm sure there's a few on here with some well thought out ideas about who your next 2 targets could be...

    You could always drink one yourself, then fill it with something shitty, re-wax it, and send it on its way to Raji.

    But seriously, props to you for taking care of people who were screwed over on this. Very cool of you to do that.

    Wow this guy. Was just reading through all this. I shared an Air BnB with him maybe 3-4 years ago at the Assassin release. Never knew it was him until someone told me today. Seemed like a nice guy. Apparently not.

    Just an update on @Lukahn generous gesture. Maman arrived with some “sour” friends today and couldn’t imagine this after what has happened. Again big thanks to @Lukahn!!!

    Usually when a barrel aged stout arrives with "sour" friends a refund is in order.

    Well thankfully these friends were separated by glass bottles and labels to tell them apart.

    I can’t say this enough. People like @Lukahn is what makes BA what BA is, and what makes BA great. Someone inserts a shitbag like Raj, and the universe responds in kind. This is just great stuff. This is what makes the community what it is. This is why I stay on BA. This is why I will only ever trade on BA. This is why BA is my hobby far and away more than “beer”. BA is great people, and BA is building relationships.

    Aw shucks guys, I appreciate all the kind words and DMs! Really just happy I am even in a position to help a few people with the culprits own bottles. But I agree, this community is top notch!
