Somewhere on the Café there is a recent post where the author collected a long list of excuses used by magic producers for their failure to deliver promised and PAID FOR goods - it's a mind blowing list and the excuses are used over and over. I am always amazed at the number of people that staunchly defend the perpetrators of these SCAMS (I have no other word for it). No wonder it happens over and over.

I have not been around for a few days, due to manufacturing and producing the effects.

The order of Linked HAS now been sent. Again.



... and that was more than ten days ago.

After what has happned so far, any righ minded person would have posted in Royal Mail Special delivery, which is next day GUARANTEED delivery (UK 2 UK delivery).

Either magicbox is too slow in telling that its in stock and posting it OR somebody is not telling the truth. and also enjoying the money that was received thru pre-orders.

This pre-order racket is WONDERFUL.

Well I have e-mailed MAGICBOX about LINKED was thinking of getting switcher but err....not yet
It was late on a friday so I'll give them the benifit of a few days grace,
Basically asking what the **** is going on either we have the worst postal system in the known world (by the way every package ive sent out over the last month has got there the next day £1-40 recorded delivery)
or someone is telling fibb's (lies)........... just let us know the truth.............
I believe people still do that ocasionally..

Make sure you check with your credit card company to see how long you have to file a complaint.

I think there's a margin of months (maybe 2) on which you can file for a complaint and ask for a refund on a payment made thru a CC. So you guys better check in that case with your CC company soonest possible.

Hi,

I would not release an effect and then keep people waiting with negative comments being posted. This is not why I am inventing new visual magic.

It was never my intention to keep people waiting. It has taken me quite some time
to re produce the order.

I want Linked available more than anyone.

I will of course sort something out for the people who pre ordered Linked and have had to wait.

Again I am very sorry that people have had to wait.

I have been offline for about 6 days but will now be back on everyday.

Best,

Richard

He was off line,he has your money so really no need to come on line. Very bad marketing for a preorder.

You have released an effect and kept people waiting. That is a fact.

You have kept them waiting. Why didn't you produce a partial order to get it to the first to purchase it.

No, the people that paid two months ago want it more.



I will of course sort something out for the people who pre ordered Linked and have had to wait.

Maybe refund their money and give the Linked for nothing.

You should have kept people informed. Bad business.



Best,

Richard

Hi,

I have no money from Linked at all, that is in the hands of the store. In fact I lost all the money it cost me to produce the 400 Linked.

I can only say I am sorry for the delay and I agree that a pre order should not go on so long. As you know I had a problem which I could do nothing about. I have worked as fast as I possibly could.

I make every single effect by hand. To make the order again has taken some time.

Once again I am very sorry for the delay and don't know what more I can do.

Best,

Richard

I just sent an email to magicbox inquiring about this. Has anyone received any correspondence from them? Luckily, I did not pre-order this, so I am not invested in this, but it does look like a great effect.

Is there a problem with the post in the UK that everything gets lost.
