    Default LAWSUIT!!!

    From the way this DrPepper hunt is being run, it looks like a potential lawsuit by someone or a class action. The main reason being fictional or bogus information being given out at the call center.

    And DrPepper refusing to post on their website the status of the claimed coins.

    Even when several people called Customer Relations at DrPepper they were given conflicting information and it seemed as if even the agents there didn't know what was going on.

    I can see how they would want to keep this from us, making us think that none of them have been claimed, so we'll keep buying DrPepper for more clues!

    Hey, regulus. I can't disagree with you. On the other hand, I think we have to be very cautious and believing what anyone said they were "told". We don't really know if they were told what they reported as "told".

    What I do know at this point:

    *There is a directional mistake in my clues....only a few clues ago, which sends me in the OPPOSITE direction I should be heading, making the final clue/answer from last night impossible. The coin's placement doesn't fit with the clues given.

    *There was an error in the Hawaii clues posted online for a long time. DP QUIETLY corrected it after several days without drawing attention to their error.

    *There seems to be no one to get in contact with within a reasonable amount of time when there are important issues that need addressed in a timely fashion. Phone reps don't seem to have the information needed - and calls are not being returned in a timely fashion.

    In my opinion, a good part of the problem is that the people making the decisions and/or mistakes are isolated from the people affected by the decision and/or mistakes.

    Default Boston hunt

    It is possible that the city of Boston's Public Parks department may in fact be taking legal action against the people running the promotional. Information I received from the city yesterday indicated that the area the coin was placed did not (and would not) receive a permit from the city. Given the weirdness of the Adult Swim bomb scare in the city a few weeks ago, they feel like cracking down on these unlicensed promos right now.

    The area in question is LOCKED this past week, and I've been told the area will remain locked until they can work out the legal issues with Dr Pepper and Softcoin, thus, it will remain closed indefinately.
