    Is this a scam?

    Ok, my friend says he can get a great deal with a person he knows, but the person wants $120 downpayment for the next two months. This is for a game server company, which the other guy claims it will come with TCadmin, and should be able to hold 20 game servers. I'm thinking only $60 for 20 servers? This can't be real.

    800gb hardrive
    4gb of ram

    $60/month

    No way can that be done. Say that hardware costs...$1500 (and I think thats conserative) too just reclaim hardware costs at $60/mo would take 2+ years excluding anything else.

    Its a scam, run away

    GAH! BAH! SAH! KAH!

    Thats way too cheap to be valid... take a2b2's word of advice and BAIL/SPRINT/RUN AWAY

    I would rather pay more money and go with a more known company than a guy friend knows.

    That's what I told the person. This person also did sponsor my friend with free shoutcast servers that has been given before.

    A Dual Opteron 270 at Softlayer is about $350/mo so they are selling for $300/mo less than they are...

    I'm out all day tomorrow and I have no way to contact him. Hopefully he doesn't buy it.

    I don't suppose that person making the offer's name is Keith Mansfield is it?

    That is a scam my friend. TCadmin is $15, bandwith for 20 servers has to be more than the remaining $45. Run do not walk away.

    As a note, you should not order anything related to our software unless it is from one of the companies mentioned on our resellers page here:
    http://tcadmin.com/dedicated.php

    Or you can also order your own licensing as well to place on your server.

    its 90% scam..unless he stole those servers..that's the only way out of it and using his own internet. otherwise there is no other way unless he expects you not to check out the specifications.

    20 game servers if they're all 1 slot maybe

    Yes it's a scam, you're lucky to get a P4 for $60/month.
