gohiggins, thank you for your interest. Do you have an email address which we could communicate with and go over perhaps some of your credentials and past experiences with teams and I too will introduce myself, other members and go over our proposed strategy?

Koz, I'm happy to communicate with you via email once I'm satisfied that I would be 'seriously' interested in your venture. However, at this time I'm afraid that I couldn't say that my interest stems any further than a curiosity as to your commitment and openness about your project. I would imagine, in the first instance, that a good indicator of one who is fully committed and willing to be candidly open about their operation with a silent investor (such as myself) would be to show goodwill in answering the questions I've outlined above.

I mentioned earlier that I don't feel that much of what I was querying would be really sensitive to discuss, and as some have commented above beig able to discuss these issues in open forum allows for further understanding and education for others interested in this line of work and, more importantly, how things should be done. Discussing some points here in open forum also lends itself to the benefit of having what things you and I say be critiqued (as it so often is) by our peers and, I'm sure, by those with more experience than you or I from abroad.

As a gesture of goodwill to you you may contact me on this email address g.ohiggins87@gmail.com but, if it's all the same to you, I'd still be more comfortable keeping any preliminary communications here in your thread. But feel free to contact me regarding any person queries or information.

My name is Geoff

Default I smellz a rat

Its a good post by O.Higgins but i smell a rat. Specifically i doubt this guy has the team running experience he says he has. He is vague only when he is discussing his past experiences and his email has the numbers 87 in it, usually that indicated what year the person was born in. So this guy's probably 24, and i dont know too many 24yr olds with the BR and experience hes talking about. If ur legit, bro, my apologies i just dont want to see good people get taken for a ride. Proceed w caution. Just my two cents.

Healthy criticisim MeWin, I appreciate what you're saying and I thought I'd point out, purely for the sake of open communication, that nobody is in any risk of being taken for a ride in this particular instance (not that I'm in the business of doing say anyway...) as I haven't been given any information that would, or does, instil confidence in investing money with koz1984.

Koz has emailed, despite my requests for him to answer some very basic questions in open forum, and from the brief communication he forwarded to me I am of the opinion that he, and his associates, are not of a proficiency (both technical, or in a sense of the practicality of running a blackjack team) to be requesting for a third-party investor of a sum as large as he was proposing. - If anyone requires any further details of my sincere, albeit brief, impressions of koz and what he proposes I'm happy to answer to your queries here.

I thought I'd share my conclusion of what impression I have taken away from this scenario here, prompted by MeWin's impression of me.

- For what it's worth, I understand the scepticism I would put myself under for posting above. So, no hard feelings MeWin! And I thought I'd just say '87 isn't my birth year and Geoff O'Higgins isn't my name: I'm sure this will prompt similarly sceptical opinions now of my credibility, but for the purposes of establishing initial contact here in the forum I didn't see the harm in creating an email and an account. I'm sure we can all appreciate sometimes the sensitivity that is the AP industry.

Cheers

There is a reason I was succinct, I am still sceptical about your identity. It's laughable that you suggest you know my proficiency based on the, and I quote you, "brief communication" we had. I told you a bit about my general background playing BJ, I did not attempt to show you how skilful I was, so I think for the sake of everyone here, discount what this 3 post member has to say.

I agree KOZ1984. Furthermore, he then takes the time to bash his alleged potential partner publicy, which no real business person would do.

Troll on, troll on
