a person of integrity

So awhile ago I traded advertising space for merch with Victory Records' screen printing shop. I repeat, this was a TRADE. Yet, even though I've talked this over with my contact there, they are now threatening me. This is the email their accounting manager sent me this morning:

"We have been trying to get in contact with you regarding the invoice that is on your account that is seriously overdue. We need payment for invoice XXXXXX for the amount of XXX.XX. We processed your order in good faith expecting that you would pay for the goods in which you received. Please be a person of integrity and pay us what is do to us. We are prepared to turn this account over to a third party if you do not respond to this attempt within 48 hours from the time of this email. Please let it be made known to your attention that we will inform our collectors to take this issue to small claims court and do whatever is necessary to collect on this overdue balance. This invoice will not go away unless you pay for it."

If this invoice isn't going to go away until I pay it, then I suppose I'm going to court!

mik_ 1/24/2005 2:08:43 PM

dude dont worry, victory have threatened their own workers who left them, they have threatened bands, now they are doing it to you.. just email them tell them to stop thinking they can say threats to everyone (bands, their own workers, website owners etc..) dont worry usualy the invoice will go away

I would trade them one good review of one of their shitty CDs for a One Life Crew test press. I know they've still got that shit lying around. Otherwise, fck Victory Records. They spent years building a name around incredible and influential releases only to wipe it out and disgrace the memory of real hardcore with records by the likes of Taking Back Sunday. It's honestly just embarassing but I'm sure they're enjoying the millions of dollars they're making by raping all their pop-punk bands wit

xscottx_ 1/24/2005 2:39:39 PM

Haha, they honestly threaten everyone about everything. Most likely, it will blow over because because they'll make a huge issue about it, and then mostly likely do nothing. Psh, Victory...

a_new_religion_ 1/25/2005 6:03:58 AM

horsecow162_ 1/25/2005 9:04:01 AM

hoffa_ 1/25/2005 2:20:51 PM

"pay us what is DO to us?" seriously.

Dr_Radiation_ 1/25/2005 2:27:47 PM

Way to bite the hand that feeds them..

James_ 1/25/2005 2:32:25 PM

How the hell can you go from Earth Crisis to Taking Back Sunday? Here is my theory, Tony Brummel has a fat 12-year old daughter with braces that shops at Hot Topic.

kris_ 1/25/2005 5:35:03 PM

yeah they really aren't very nice people. victory goes from having killer bands to having.. what 2 good bands? (POW, and Darkest Hour) fck that noise, trading never EVER seems to work out lately. just hit them back with a invoice for the as space

Raybeez RIP

Cory_ 1/26/2005 1:11:19 PM

I think its hilarious that they still put the Raybeez RIP thing on their records. He's clawing his way out of his grave to strangle Tony Brummel as we speak.

tony brummel's cat_ 1/26/2005 2:11:02 PM

you guys remember that time victory did anything remotely interesting? yeah, it was the moshing santa.

sean_ 1/26/2005 4:12:42 PM

woulndn't it be DUE instead of DO? fckin amateurs!

a_new_religion_ 1/27/2005 8:14:24 AM

remember when santa moshing was fcking stupid? yeah me too.

Cory_ 1/27/2005 1:57:00 PM

the headline to this made it seem like you were talking about Dwid.

jnug_ 1/27/2005 4:20:45 PM

thats what you get for posting that bury your dead ad on the mb for a week!

deez_nutz_ 1/27/2005 7:42:34 PM

what was that Raybeez used to say about keeping hardcore out of big business an in the streets where it belongs?

ihavegas_ 1/29/2005 3:23:33 PM

take down anything relating to victory records, and tell them to pay you before you take them to pwnedville, population :Victory Records

BigTimeLawyer_ 1/29/2005 9:32:21 PM

they are threatening and harassing you spend a little time and learn how to sue the crap out of them in small claims court, you could get an easy judgement from these bozo's

LetsGetSerious_ 2/1/2005 12:16:19 PM

WeedySpecies_ 2/8/2005 1:17:07 AM
