    Yes, yes, sorry I didn't list the prize(s) needed. I am owed $500.00 in 1st prize money, plus two 3rd prize coins (which to be honest, I am not too worried about, but would like them).

    I have received one silver coin that amounted to a 2nd prize that I had won in the Attic.
    When I'm dead I'll rest.

    Let me tell my story:

    I ordered both versions of Idol of Xi in May. Like everyone else, I got the runaround, it took forever, empty promises, etc. Finally, after the first post regarding that a 'Curtis Burdine' email had been received, I wrote another, angrier, email to ScrollQuest. He responded! 'Curtis' said that he would Priority Mail my package the next day and send me a tracking number. He also said he was including something extra to make up for all my problems.

    And he did.

    So I had a tracking number, and it was in the USPS system. Week and a half goes by; I didn't receive it. Then 'Curtis' writes me, saying they got it returned with a wrong address--a '3' was used where an 'E' (for 'East') should have been. He said he would re-mail it the next day.

    I got the package a few days later.

    So, even though I'm still waiting on all my Attic prizes, ScrollQuest has come through for me, and they added an extra gift to try and ameliorate the whole situation, which was very kind.

    I'm just telling what happened, not bashing or supporting. It took a long time, a lot of emailing, and a lot of faith, but I now have most of what I paid faith. Once/If I get my Attic prizes, they'll be almost (see below) all caught up with me.

    (Epilogue: Two days before I got my package, I ordered the Ambrose Archive [doh!]. I didn't know that Jason was including a complimentary copy for me, for my five months of waiting. So I emailed customer service and asked them to cancel my order. No response. My card has been charged. Maybe there is no end in sight to this. Worst comes to worst, I get another copy of it.)
    When I'm dead I'll rest.

    As of today, Tuesday 14th, no package from SQ and no reply to my last email to their customer representative.

    Is it because I haven't been loud or nasty enough? Let's start with loud and save the nasty part for the end of the week when I will, most probably, still be waiting for it.

    SCROLLQUEST WHERE IS THE PACKAGE YOU SAID YOU HAD SENT??

    Gabi,
    To make it even louder, let me join you in yelling at ScrollQuest, since I have not received my package as promised either! And, I too have not heard back from their Customer Service after several emails.

    SCROLLQUEST
    WHERE IS THAT PACKAGE THAT YOU SAID YOU HAD SENT?????!!!!!!

    Ah, they say word of mouth is the best advertising there is. So, at least they got that going for them.

    "Hello Schwab. You know that bunch of ScrollQuest stock I own? Well sell !, sell !!, sell !!!!"

    I guess I'm a little confused. I can understand wanting to get what you paid for, and even more, wanting the prizes you earned. I still haven't received the 'original artwork' from Eimhin for winning the silly 1e2 food challenge in July. My daughter is so matter-of-fact about it; "I guess they lied to us, Mom." I reminded her how much fun we had making little smokie people and their snake adventure, and said that sometimes that's the prize you get. I won't relay her response.

    I had to beat SQ on the proverbial head to get my Gris Gris scroll, but Jason and Eimhin did communicate with me and six weeks after they said it was shipped, I got my scroll.

    The reason I'm confused is that it's obvious the SQ model has failed. There is no denying these guys are unreliable and that the relationships between them and our forum, their customers, and yep - even our children - has diminished to the point of nonexistence. Surely you aren't going to expend energy participating in these hunts? Wilhouse's opal ring aside, they've already established they won't pay when you win something - why trust them further? I can't see that you all are gaining anything by getting louder and more violent (hehe) in a forum where ties have been severed.

    It's just time to move on. Go grab a DAR ring; you're all definitely smart enough! Best of luck to you all for a quick resolution to your issues. I'm out.

    Because at least until yesterday this was the official SQ forum, which means that anyone finding SQ for the first time would come here to see what was going on.

    If it is true, as it looks like from SQ's site today, that this is not their forum any more then it doesn't make sense to complain here other than to warn other twelevers of what has happened to some of us.

    Oh, and I never received the scroll I won in the tweleve puzzle hunt either. I had forgotten about that one.

    spiderman,

    I have several reasons. For one, I am PO'd. I foolishly spent several months of quality recreational time searching pointlessly for clues to bogus treasure hunts. I don't like to be made the fool.

    For another, I am a proud skeptic. And one think a skeptic should do is stand up and inform people who are being schwindled. It is not enough to sit by idle, and allow this to go on and effect other people.
