I got a nasty email some days ago, seems that at least one member is suspecting this is some kind of scam, that I make profit of this by keeping at least a part of the money you dear fellow geeks have donated to Dinesh & Kavita. According to this email, the sender is not alone thinking like this, the subject has been (again according to sender) discussed on PM's and chats.

Because of different economical possibilities of individual donors, we agreed that only the total amount and donors names are published. This is why I can not post the individual amounts, either here or on the wedding blog.

This is why I came up with an auditing system that might be OK with you guys, and am now asking your fellow geeks your opinion. My suggestion: If Joan Archer accepts my invitation to act as an auditor I'll give her a complete list of donors (the names are already for everybody to see here) with the amount of each donation. IMO we can agree that the list is complete; if a donor can not find his / her name on that list, I think we had heard of that already. I think that we can also agree that Joan is one in whom everybody trusts, in her integrity. She could then PM each and every donor to ask if the amount I told her is the actual amount donated, and calculate these together.

I really need to cut wings of this rumor now, not to wait until the wedding. Dinesh has already got about 20% more than all your dear fellow geeks have donated, this extra being a part of my donation. In addition, I have compensated the PayPal fees of each donated Euro / Dollar / Pound, so Dinesh has got the gross amount you donated, not the net after the fees.

More about transfers and actual situation in the blog section of the wedding site.

Very sincerely,

Kari

Kari I would be willing to accept the invite, but can I get back to you tomorrow as I'm shutting down shortly so don't have time right now to follow up.

Another thought, my husband is an accountant, OK retired now, but he's the one with a head for figures.

I know you trust me and hope you don't mind me telling this openly. I mentioned this email to you in one of our chats, talked it more with Angie, and found no more options than to make it public and let an outsider everybody trusts control the situation.

@Joan, OK.

Well if the complaint didn't come from a contributor my answer is who cares what they think?

If they wish to send something to Dinesh direct and not send it to you they can use Western Union and pay the fee of doing so.

If you wish to be audited that is up to you.
I'm not worried about it.
If I didn't trust you I would not have sent you any money.

My three cents.

Yes, Hoppy, sender was not a donor. I just don't want any suspicions so I think that we let Joan (or hubby ) to check the figures.

Like Hoppy said....If I didn't trust you I wouldn't not have sent it.
There is always some jerk who will do something like this.
All I care about is Dinesh and Kavita getting my donation and having a great wedding.
More importantly .....sharing the rest of there lives together.

Thanks, Dennis.

Aren't those invitation cards nice? Somehow seeing them made this whole wedding feel more real; it really is happening!

Well done, Dinesh.

Donations to Dinesh & Kavita
Just wanted to post that what Kari has told us is true and no way has this been a scam or a rip off to line his own pocket. Having looked over the accounts I can say that Dinesh has indeed received more than the total of donations shown because Kari has covered the cost of the exchange plus...

I am rather excited about it even though I am a Yank. I have already told my significant other that we are going to the wedding and she is as excited as I am. I have also told her that the only thing that could stop us is if we don't get an invitation..............:p
