Dead Horse, meet Mr. Bat. Commense beating. You've probably heard this story a thousand times. On January 31st, 2003 I pre-ordered the 88MPH Studios book, Transformers Genesis with a PayPal payment of $32.48 US. I was excited to see the original Box Artwork for the G1 toys, that was my main reason for ordering the book. A year passed by and so far, no book. Word started going around that some people were getting their book, but nothing ever arrived in my mail box. Finally, I inquired several times about where my book was. Apparently, some people weren't going to get their book, so Sebastien Clavet, Mr. 88MPH himself, asked everyone who wanted a refund to request it through Paypal. This was Feb. 26th, 2004. I submitted my request for a refund and waited. No refund was ever received. On Sept 10th, 2004, I wrote an email to inquire what happened to the refunds, and CC:'d it to several 88MPH addresses. I got the following as a response.... I received it twice. Form email, again. No refund...again. Several inquiries have been sent to Sebastien at his various email addresses since then, but no response has been received from Mr. Clavet since 2004... 2 years and 3 months later, I get an email from PayPal stating that 88MPH Studios has cancelled my request for a refund. No reason for it was stated. It was simply cancelled. I have officially gone from being generally pissed and mad to being infuriated. But this should come as no surprise. Wikipedia listed his issues with giving refund as.. I think the man is simply a fraud and a thief. $32 may not seem like much to some, for me and my daughter, it's groceries for a week, or a tank of gas that will last me 2 weeks...it's money from my pocket that was given in good faith for what seemed like an exciting and wonderful book. But that money was in fact stolen, no book given as promised and after repeated promises to give a refund, no money returned. Does anyone know of any recourse to get this man to pay up? Should I contact PayPal? Or am I just simply wasting my breath, and my energy on that pathetic pile of horse crap known as Sebastien Clavet?
