TOMO came through, I don’t think they meant any harm and ultimately I think they are good people
Resolution: I proved ownership of the wallet and provided KYC to tomo to receive the tokens. Ended up talking with the tomo project lead quite a bit and I don't think they acted maliciously or deceptively and I think they are good people and trustworthy. The internet is full of scammers, crypto especially, and he had a right to be suspicious. I deleted the old thread on my own accord because they fulfilled their end and I dont think it was fair to continue harming their reputation. And a lot of the people in the other thread accused me of scamming and sent me some nasty messages, I really didn't feel good about making people feel that way.
Thank you to everyone who supported my endeavor and helped me with visibility. Thank you for all the kindness. I was simply overwhelmed by the magnitude of the response, thank you. I hate that I had to do this, I don't feel good about it, and I wish things were handled differently on both sides. That said, I'm in very poor health with a poor outlook and couldn't afford to wait. He even commented how unwell I looked in my KYC photos in a non-insulting way, but I'm well aware that I look like shit so I got a laugh out of it.
To everyone who thought I was scamming: why didn't i post donation links or ask for more? why would I waste this entire situation on such a specific circumstances and not aim for a larger sum of money? Doesn't make sense to me. Regardless, I wasn't. Thanks for the negativity though, it absolutely disgusted me to be thought of that way. It's extremely difficult for me to stay positive because of my rapidly deteriorating health, whats your excuse?
