Many people are still fighting to get their monies back from their cc comapnies. Many people are still waiting for their broken amp for repairs that they now will be paying for instead of being still under warranty. And at the end of it all, Thank ED for helping them. Who is ED? Nobody wants to answer the question. Dave says its in the past. Matt says he is clueless of everything. Who owns their assets?
There are many unanswered questions that should be answered or at least discussed so members can learn from this and watch out for companies using this forum to advertise their products and then end up like this. This is not the first, and probably won't be the last. What is really unfair and very insulting to everybody who had been wronged directly or indirectly by Elemental Designs, is that even at the very end... IT'S NEVER ED'S FAULT. in this case, it is solely Alex's.
Why does any of that matter and how is it going to help anything in the future? Is knowing who owns the assets going to help you get your money back? It's probably the bank's at this point and the bank will come before anyone in trying to get back the funds.
eD didn't advertise on AVS, a customer asked the permission of the mods to create this thread years ago. They haven't even been very active on here since I left the company.
No one is thanking eD and I think that's where you're missing something. Matt, an individual, is doing everything he can to help fix a situation that happened at the company he worked for.
Again, if your CEO embezzles funds and leaves, are you going to stick around to try to find a way to pay back everyone at the company that's ever been wronged? With no way to process transactions or ship goods so any reimbursement you make likely will come from your personal funds? No, you wouldn't do that because it's insane and you can't expect someone to have that level of responsibility for someone else's actions just because they worked at the same company?
Guess what, that's exactly what Matt's been going through. No money, can't have a fire sale to reimburse prior customers, can't even ship products out or process transactions.
If you've got one guy talking to customers, talking to vendors, charging cards, making delivery promises, paying(or not paying) vendors, and then there are other people at the company just doing their job, who's fault is it when things go down hill? Hint, that one guy referenced in my last sentence was Alex.
Don't believe that letter that was posted all you want but I, having worked there and technically been Alex's boss for 2 years, can believe that he took on more than he could and was trying to make the best of the situation even while things were going down the crapper.
Your tinfoil hat conspiracies and hatred of Matt are just frustrating. I mean, you could start calling me out for leaving the company when things were going well. I obviously ditched out before things got bad and, through your apparent logic, probably caused all the issues in the last 3.75 years simply by not being present.
