    I agree that it speaks volumes that no one dared to defend or explain the situation.

    Again, this is ME talking ... I seriously don't think that the people that were scammed are going to have their reputations tarnished because they fell for it.

    ScrollQuest was real. The people involved were real. Here we going giving someone the benefit of the doubt and believing what they had to offer was real. I did believe it, I just couldn't scrounge enough change together to send the 5 bucks.

    I'd say these people were more a victim of a sick joke. The funny thing is, the scrolls only cost $5. Why would someone take the time to create the puzzles and the scroll just to have people to fall for it to get a lousy $5 out of them? The effort that went into this, I would believe is way more than that. Wouldn't you think?

    Sorry, Suho .. I don't read all of the posts in here. My co-worker (who is here for Dar) read alot of the threads and told me about it. Of course, I had to say something, Holli is my sister and I can be mean ... lol, ask her!

    Hi Holli, I have cut down my postings; Happy holli-days to you too!
    I have resisted the urge to say too much. I have little to contribute that hasn't been said by others already.

    Visnja, I have 7 sisters, so I know a little bit about how mean they can be, but I wouldn't trade anyone of them. My own thoughts tend to vary on the SQ matter. By this I mean speculating what the intention was versus how it resulted. I would agree that for an outright scam, they couldn't have made THAT much money. Web site costs, scroll production and printing costs, travel costs, prize material costs, prizes they did send for the Attic and mini and Con hunts, etc. I don't know if Jason's cohorts were paid or promised the moon later, but it is hard to believe so much effort could be obtained on a promise (re: Evan and Steve Bennett). And of course, the $20.50 or so they sent to Tweleve.

    Jason et al may have left many disgruntled folks, and his reputation has taken quite a hit, but did he really take away anything? Perhaps the detective work into the value of the prizes was the final nail in the coffin, so to speak. Even if he could come back from the poor service issues, if the prizes can't hold their value upon a neutral appraisal then their last card has been played. Not getting prizes is no fun, but getting ripped off on merchandise really stinks.

    Cheers all,


    Suho

    I will follow Jason everywhere he goes and make sure every one of his employers, customers, etc... knows what happened here & who they are dealing with. He's a scumbag and to say that someone needs to take him out front and give him a kiss would be kind.

    Please, if you're going to edit what I said make it clear in the text where you edited - or in the alternative, delete my post if you think it's inappropriate. I have never contemplated taking Jason out front and giving him a kiss. Eccch.
