Jumpcon Refund Watch - Day 4

Still no refund and no communication from Shane and Jumpcon. I have emailed again, tried calling but it just rang and rang, no answer at all.

On a happier note we had a fun time at the Fancon in Boston yesterday. We had a group of about 20 people come and hang out. We had one man who came with his full size, working, handmade replica of R2D2! It was amazing!

We also had Mark Goddard (sorry if I spelled the last name wrong) who played Don West on Lost in Space come and spend some time with us. He was very gracious and kind and it was so generous of him to come (and he wasn't paid).

A big shout out to the folks at United FanCon. They did a fabulous job of organizing and getting this little con going. We can't thank you enough. You are a first class operation and it shows!

As for Jumcon Refund Watch - It's going on hiatus for a few days. I had some family who heard about me not being able to afford a summer vacation because I lost all my money to Jumpcon and they have offered to let me come to the beach in Maine with them instead. I'll let you all know when I get back if the refund is waiting for me.

Best wishes to all of you heading into Boston for the weekend!

Hi.. you know I actually promited that event on my blog for months because I have the adrianpaulnewswire and Adrian paul was planning on attending many of the Jumpcons so we have a entire Highlander community affected by all this.

Can I suggest that you not wait for Shane to take any action. Be proactive. Call your credit card company and tell them what happened and ask them to give you the credit. I read an article whereby he states that he went to the bank to get a loan to pay the refunds and the actors.

I just wanted to let you know that Carmel McPherson who is head of Highlander worldwide had a meeting this weekend with Shane Senter.

I gather he spent all the monies on TV ads, marketing and hotels. and he is unable to give refunds at this moment in time. I would contact your credit card company
