Beware of Fraudulent Cards Sold By Keith Dumoulinpage  1 2

Background story:
 
Igor did design the Vampire V500 and the Vampire V500 V2+.
After Igor did design the V500 he did some measurements
and was not fully happy with the card.
He decided that he wanted a higher quality for the customers and designed the improved V500 V2+ and it was decided that the V500 should NEVER be sold to users.
   
Keith Dumoulin stole files from Igor Majsta server and populated those V500 cards which should never had been sold.
   
Keith is motivated by greed - and does not care about users getting bad cards or about the teams reputation.
 
 
If you assume that you bought a fake card, then please contact us directly with information from whom you bought the card and when.
We will try to solve this matter and we will help you.
 
 
In case that you really got a fake card,
we would advice you contact Paypal customer protection to reclaim your money.

  All legitimate V500's are black. Some team-internal prototypes (developer cards) came with other colors.

We are not letting users down.

Even if you got a cloned card  - we will help you and enabled you to run GOLD 2.7.

But you need to register your card for this
and you need to do this fast.
This free registration options for cloned cards will be closed soon.

So what does Mr. Dumoulin have to say for himself?
Any defense or explanation?

Not much other then making wild accusations and getting himself banned almost everywhere.

He denies the accusations entirely. Has anyone posted any proof of these cards existing, with proof that people bought them from Keith?

(for example I believe it's the case that some of the people who got early test team cards have sold the old green v500 cards, also I believe kipper had a hard drive crash at some point and lost some serial numbers. I see a lot of certainty about the accusations of clones existing, but I've not seen any proof)

I have a Kippercard, and Im very happy with it. Likewise Kipper provided very good service etc.

That said; I registered my card as soon as it opened up, so if my serial nr was lost in the harddisk crash, it got re-verified by me directly.

But we know this already.

Keith has a history of not speaking the truth.
Keith posted a lot of lies about Igor, Kippa,
and posted made up number of license costs.

Be careful when you do business with him.
And if you buy any Vampires from him - you need be aware that GOLD 2.7, and future cores will not work on it.

Now with authorized dealers one should not buy it via ebay, with expection with direct majsta sales.

Sad end of someone who demonstrated Vampire on Amiga 1000 on You Tube and I suppose was interestee at some point of time.

@Gunnar: I don't see much point in going back and forth about this with just words. I note that when I asked if there is any evidence of fraudulent vampires, or evidence that Keith was involved, none was presented.

Now, you don't owe me any evidence, because I'm just some random guy, but I think it's a little unfair to ask the whole community to believe this accusation without showing any proof.

Keith Dumoulin goes under the name of Freemilk in the other forums doesn't he?

Well, we ask for proof and we got it now. Unscrupulous to say the least, or larcenous.

Man from that facebook post that keith guy make you angry just by reading it. He deserves no less than a punch in the face, he have the gut to rob majesta publish his work and then ask him for the core ?.

Every day you get surprised from the kind of shitty people one can find on the amiga community.

I don't think this is restricted to the Amiga community.
There are shitty people everywhere.
