WI_Robin Posted February 1, 2007 Share Posted February 1, 2007 Last year I had a very small batch of trackable coins (60) made for my "geohoney's" birthday/2000th cache found milestone. I gave most of them away in local caches and traded just a very few. I have had 2 people contact me recently stating that they where unable to activate their coin because it came up as already activated. Both coins came up being activated as the same type of coin (not mine). I kept the list of all the tracking numbers and activation codes just in case someone misplaced their code so I checked all of the coins. About half where unactivated and in the activated half there where 4 coins, all the same type, that where not mine but had a tracking number that had been issued to my coins. One even had a picture on the coins webpage that showed the tracking number so I could verify that it was the same. I contacted a few people who had the coins. One person stated that the coin came in a flip from the same company who manufactured my coin. When I contacted the owner he stated that the coin was manufactured by a different company. I e-mailed the company who made my coins with the tracking numbers and the picture that I found on the coin's page. I have not heard back from them yet. About half of my coins are not activated, and I don't know who has them all, so there is no way of telling how many of those coins are also affected! Has anyone else had this happen??? If so, what in the heck do you do after that....... Quote Link to comment
