As I write these words there are only 24 hours remaining to get the very best offer you will ever get on the complete SUC package deal. This special promotion runs out at midnight MDT tomorrow (Wednesday) night and is available ONLY to members of my personal email list. After 24 hours from now, no more. After that you can certainly order the SUC any time but this special package price will no longer exist. So if you are not yet on my personal email list, you need to send me an email right now with your email addy and I will send out complete details to you. My email is in the bottom of this window.

As far as I know we are right on track to have the cases sometime around the middle of next month. That's just a few short weeks away. Once I have them in my hot little hands I will be shipping orders out in the order in which they were originally received on this end. As it stands right now I have easily enough orders on hand that for those who choose to wait until I actually have the cases in my possession to place their order (they are being made even as we speak), the wait will be at least until after the first of the year, minimum. If you don't want to have to wait, and save some money at the same time you need to drop me a note and be ready to act right now. I hope to hear from you!

The SUC is not an amateur device and has been unavailable and legendary and desirable for quite some time.

It's been added to many wallets available over recent years e.g. Assassin, Aleph, Undercover, even the JOL etc... so hardly unavailable. That's why I suggested the price point I did. Supply outstrips demand, pushing the price down.


I don't think the SUC peek was added to the JOL. To my knowledge it was an original loading feature that could be used in the same way as the SUC. I seem to recall that they came out around the same time. The Assassin did use it with permission but the Aleph got permission after the fact. At least that's how I've understood it.

Sean, you are correct on all counts. Jerry's design and mine did come out at roughly the same time, and there was no knowledge of each other's products until well after the fact. Personally I think Jerry missed the boat with his design for a lot of reasons. If you're truly interested send me a PM and I'll tell you why. I have no desire to sound as if I am denigrating Jerry's fine product.

The Stealth Assassin was made with permission. The Aleph never should have happened, but it did and things had to be settled after the fact.

As tempted as I am to order one of these, I remember what happened the last time.

Yes, the inner 'business card' wallet has the SUC feature.

I'm with you on that. It was a terrible business. Better to go through a dealer imho.

I think you could also say the same about the Mullica Wallet but neither are used in the same way like the SUC. Both are used for a card to wallet effect.

I never received mine after I sent payment. This was way back in 2002 ish maybe. It's been so long that I am not going to get worked up over it again.

If the Undercover Wallet (which I was completely unfamiliar with until this thread) is using the SUC feature in any way, it was done without permission. Anybody know what the story is?

The ad copy for the Undercover Wallet clearly states it can be used as a peek device. To quote "Perhaps best of all, the wallet can be used as a peek device for mentalists."

I've heard there are already issues with lost orders and Mark is asking customers to resend personal information to verify purchases. Can anyone shed light on this situation?

T.G. Jones, instead of trying to start "crap", why don't you ask Mark? His email is posted here, his PM box is available, he is easy to contact.

Tony (great name by the way!) The reason I posted here rather than PM is that as a dealer I was known for my transparency and fairness. So I think it's only fair I post my views here so others can benefit from the same transparency, especially those that pre-ordered. If anything I'm helping to recover lost orders from those who might not be aware. I don't think there's anything wrong with that, if you do then we'll need to politely agree to disagree. Hopefully no hard feelings. Smile Tony

"I've heard there are already issues with lost orders and Mark is asking customers to resend personal information to verify purchases. Can anyone shed light on this situation? "

You asked if anyone could shed light on the situation. Who better than the one who sent the emails?

Everyone on Mark's mailing list received the message from Mark. He discovered an issue with emails sent from Paypal and addressed it immediatley and contacted those on his mailing list who may have ordered to ensure no one was missed. BTW, I was one of those affected and appreciate Mark's follow up.

And it was not "personal information", Mark asked that if anyone ordered the SUC package from him and did not received a confirmation email from him to please forward the purchase information to him. To me, this looks like someone trying to make sure there are no missed orders, and head off any issues ahead of time.

I spoke to one of my old customers who owns an Undercover Wallet. They confirmed Mark Strivings is credited in the introduction of the instructional booklet. So all is good it seems.

So TG, as a former dealer, it is OK to take another person's idea without permission as long as you credit them?
