I have now reported them to the BBB and the NJ Attorney Generals office. And I have started a claim with PayPal. Though I doubt much will come of it they are logged on official sites now.

Unfortunate that it had to come to this.

If the community wants the mind of developers like Ted for new coin effects you have to let them "breathe" and give them the time to create. We support that by buying into things like the Martinka Coin Club and waiting when it takes too long. It will come. It will be great sometimes and maybe not great others. But if you buy 12 releases in a year, get 8, are owed 4 and then get 3 great coin effects you use - to me that is AWESOME! Please support Ted and Martinka and join the club, and buy the products. The more they earn, the better they can give. Check out KFC, RingMaster, and click the COIN link for their own creations at www.Martinka.com and support if you can. This is my feeling.


Nice that you find it awesome. Nice also that you are apparently wealthy enough to buy virtually anything you want and if you never receive the product you can afford to eat the loss. But not everyone on here has that luxury so to them it is a simple case of being ripped off. You cannot make promises and not live up to them and expect people to simply give you time to "breathe". When it involves accepting payments and then not delivering the promised goods, it is not breathing, it is fraud.

If Ted were a responsible human being with even the slightest conscience he would be on here apologizing and offering refunds to everyone he owes products to, without them having to track him down and demand it. I don't know how he even sleeps at night let alone manages to "breathe and find time to create". I think his behavior is despicable.

File a complaint with the FTC and US Postal Inspector as well. A little federal prison time gives a man plenty of time to "breathe"

Finally got some results. Received 6 backordered tricks the other day with an apology for the delays. Sometimes it pays to be patient.

Judah Vee, thanks for updating, for completeness, it should be noted that you received the referenced paypal in mid April.

Action Jack, we are having an intermittent problem with the site, it is up and running now, if you encounter difficulty and need something, please email us.

Ian, you should be current, please send us an email indicating the latest release you received and we will make sure everything is good for you.

We are now finalizing two very cool releases that will begin shipping very soon, so keep an eye on the members page.

I also finally get my order (Quarkey and ConFusion) from Martinka (after almost half year delay...). I was nicely surprised that Ted sent me also the Chained effect as a bonus for the delay with a note for excuse. It was nice and I am thankful. Chained is good effect and very good quality. Unfortunately the Confusion was without the bang ring in the package, so I can not use it and should purchase from somewhere (because the trick looks interesting)... The quality of the Quarkey is not good. Can be done better in my opinion.

I have also Supersized KFC coins which are great and the effecs which can be done with this gimmicks are wonderful. In my opinion this is the best of the series. Hole 3.0 is also good. I want to buy more coin tricks from the series by Ted Bogusta but they are all Out of stock... can we expect more stock?

I really want also the Sahara Scotch and Soda. Is it expected back in stock soon?

I had signed up to view their auction archive at $9.95 for three months. Money was sent via PayPal and never received anything. I emailed them, used their contact page and no response. So I requested a PayPal refund and received a refund within days. However I did not realize it was on subscription...so three months later I’m billed again. I contact Martinka via email, via their contact page and no response. So I disputed once again with PayPal and received the refund. Martiinka never responded other than through PayPal to say I would need to cancel the subscription to stop the billing from happening again.

It is odd that the website still has a PayPal tab for this subscription but there is no subscription to receive. It reminds me a little of the OE website. Like many others have said on here, if martinka had not pre-billed or had at least communicated that there’s a delay or a glitch or something about what’s happening most of us would have been very understanding.

I just sent Ted another email today requesting my refund for way too many charged but not received "month selections", his last response to me happened a little over 4 months ago asking me for some time... Will wait for his response or to my sincere regret, I will have to go to the BBB for assistance to collect. It is just nor fair.

The BBB can't do anything or you. You can file a complaint and all they will do Is post your complaint on their site. If Martinka isn't registered with the BBB I wouldn't even waste
my time writing them. Who you do need to file a complaint with is the FTC, you can find it at FTC.GOV You can file the complaint right online and they are quick about getting back to you.
Be very careful what you write in the complaint as this could end up in a court and Martinka could counter sue you for monetary damages arising from the FTC complaint.

If you paid with PayPal, PayPal does make exceptions some times passed the deadline.
