Boomertowne.comnon payment


I too was left holding the bag when skipped out on thousands of loyal users, shutting the site down virtually overnight without warning. I have been in contact with hundreds of members (I had connections with them from other sites) and other than a few "token" rewards, cards had not been sent since May 2008. Many of us have also filed complaints with the BBB of Wisconsin and talk is that law enforcement are looking at Mr Hershel and his site for blatant fraud and misrepresentation amongst other charges. should be made an example of so others are not scammed by new "win big" sites coming down the pike. What they did was inexcusable!

    Boomertowne sounds like another WebRidesTV site.
