Your generosity is STUNNING!


Ken Wright
 

Hi Dennis. This has been tremendous response, my personal views are that this group should be secured for the future, after that I would leave it to your  discretion.

Hi Ken,
By now you have probably seen the reason your transaction number wasn't found. PayPal issues you one transaction number and issues me a totally different number. I had no idea this was the case until a few days ago.

Your contribution came through just fine. This is the information I received:

Wrapping up the TekScopes pledge drive, Michael Dunn and I are STUNNED by your generosity and all the positive comments we received. Your contributions have exceeded the $340 paid to Groups.io by almost 1,000%. You sent us 203 contributions totaling $3,341.77!

We agree this is a problem that I will have to fix since it was my bright idea. I did not realize when I sent my request for help that people would be so generous. I wrote, "So I am asking for small contributions". What happened was anything but "small".

Leo Bodnar, a friend, stunned me when he contributed the entire required amount two days later. This was the first sign I should have chosen a synonym such as "tiny" or "teeny" instead of small. It was too late at that point. I could see there was a tsunami headed my way and I had no way to stop it. I think the contributions have finally stopped. The last one (I
hope) arrived three days ago.

Michael and I have decided that this is far too much money for us to keep on behalf of TekScopes. The simplest solution is for us to tear up the checks and return all the PayPal contributions above $10.00 (actually all those above $10.05) over the next few days, with our sincerest thanks. This will result in exactly half of the contributions being kept and half being returned. PayPal allows me to do a total refund very quickly; we considered partial refunds, but the process would take much longer. If, after you receive your refund, you would still like to make a contribution to TekScopes, please don't send more than $10.00. If you do, we'll be forced to spend it on wine and DMMs.

Thank You,
Dennis Tillman W7PF

As I promised, here is every contribution I received. The four checking account contributions are listed in numerical order by their bank account number. Following those, the 199 PayPal contributions are listed in numerical order by their transaction number. I double and triple checked the PayPal notices that came to me or to my wife, Marian, to be sure I didn't miss any. If I missed your PayPal contribution please let me know so I can find out what happened to it. The most common contribution was $10.00 and the average contribution was $15.94.

Hi Raymond,

You are one of the few people who did correctly identify your contribution in my list.
This is the information I have on your contribution:
### DENNIS' LOCAL TIME $$$ STATUS CONTRIBUTOR PAYPAL TRANSACTION
128 Wed 1/1/2020 2:50 PM $22.57 TO BE RETURNED Raymond Domp Frank 9SK435895B100851N

Yes, Siggi is correct PayPal did this for everyone. They also obscure the time you made your contribution because they strip out your UTC offset (time zone) so I can’t tell the hour of the day you sent it. The minutes are close however.

Thank you for your contribution. We received too much money to keep it all so we will be refunding anything above $10.00 as soon as I have had a chance to contact everyone who asked for confirmation that I received their contribution.

Dennis

Siggi may be right in assuming that Paypal references change between sender and receiver (nice!) for international transactions.

Hi Larry,
Yes, I had no idea PayPal gave me a different transaction number that it gave you. This is why you could not find your transaction number in my list.

I don't want to beat this issue to death, but the comment below is very interesting. I could not find my PayPal transaction number in the list either and I wrote Dennis privately to explain that. But, mine was *not* an international transaction; I live in California. My donated amount is a common amount so I could not identify it by the amount.

So, I wonder if PayPal changes *all* the transaction numbers. Did anyone actually find his transaction number in the list Dennis published?

It is gratifying that so many did donate and I fully support the reimbursement; it is money well deserved.

Hi Jay,
That's strange. I did include the context. Here is my complete reply (between the long dashed lines).
For some reason you didn't everything in my reply. I don't know why.
Could this be why we don’t get context when other people DO include it in their replies?

No, but I get the digest so perhaps that's why?

However!! Keep whatever (except for those wanting it back) and put in an account for future needs. This has become a huge amount of work for Mr. Tillman. SAVE YOUR EFFORTS for something more meaningful. We all love the group. Having money put away for the future saves work by not needing to do this again for a long time.

Why not set up a bank account for it, and Autopay for Groups.io? It could
also be used to fund group purchases for custom made replacement parts,
when you are short a person or two. Put the money back into the account
when the extras are sold. We did this for a computer club, in the '80s. It
was registered as a non profit, but it wouldn't be difficult to do that for
a group this size.

Hi Michael,
A bank account is definitely something we have to do. It is a little tricky because Michael is in Canada and I am in the US so we have to be sure we comply with the laws of both nations.

We also need to put it in an account where currency variations won't adversely affect it. That would probably be the US.

In April 2011 it cost $0.95CD to buy $1.00US. The Canadian dollar was worth more than the US dollar.
Today it costs $1.32CD to buy $1.00US. A Canadian dollar is worth $0.76US.

Since Groups,io is in the US it might be easier to have the bank account in the US.

I am hopeful Groups.io will implement a payment option that would let us pay 5 years at a time. That would be even better.

Why not set up a bank account for it, and Autopay for Groups.io? It could also be used to fund group purchases for custom made replacement parts, when you are short a person or two. Put the money back into the account when the extras are sold. We did this for a computer club, in the '80s. It was registered as a non profit, but it wouldn't be difficult to do that for a group this size.

Hi Raymond,

You are one of the few people who did correctly identify your
contribution in my list.
This is the information I have on your contribution:

Yes, Siggi is correct PayPal did this for everyone. They also obscure
the time you made your contribution because they strip out your UTC
offset (time zone) so I can’t tell the hour of the day you sent it.
The minutes are close however.

Thank you for your contribution. We received too much money to keep it
all so we will be refunding anything above $10.00 as soon as I have
had a chance to contact everyone who asked for confirmation that I
received their contribution.

Dennis

Dennis,
My transaction could well be
9SK43*******0851N $22.57 TO BE REFUNDED
That's the only transaction in your list for the amount that I transferred.
Siggi may be right in assuming that Paypal references change between
sender and receiver (nice!) for international transactions.

We were incorporated as a non profit, and had an annual election of
officers. It was all done by volunteers, so no one was paid for the few
hours a year it took to elect officers and file with the IRS. I don't
think there is any limitation of board members all being in the US. It has
been 30 years since I was president of that club.

Hi Michael,
A bank account is definitely something we have to do. It is a little
tricky because Michael is in Canada and I am in the US so we have to be
sure we comply with the laws of both nations.

We also need to put it in an account where currency variations won't
adversely affect it. That would probably be the US.

In April 2011 it cost $0.95CD to buy $1.00US. The Canadian dollar was
worth more than the US dollar.
Today it costs $1.32CD to buy $1.00US. A Canadian dollar is worth $0.76US.
