Jeff72, I'm so sorry about what happened to you. The ads are what pay the bills for the upkeep of the forum. I'll mention what happened to you to the rest of the forum staff.
Just an update. ClickBank (the service that accepts your payment for the eBook) was not able to resolve anything in the 2 business days timeframe, so I have requested a refund from them. I have yet to have it credited to my card but I suspect it will be sometime early next week.
None of the emails for the author that ClickBank has work nor does the email that the author lists on his actual website. They all get returned as undeliverable.
I wouldn't buy one. More info is on this site and several breeders sites for FREE!!!
Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.
I apologize for the inconvenience. As has been mentioned, the link to the eBook helps make maintaining the forum possible. This is the first I've heard about anyone purchasing the eBook and not receiving it. I am going to write to both the author and ClickBank myself, because if this is anything more than an isolated incident then we of course want to remove the link from our site.
Please do pm me and let me know how ClickBanks and/or the author resolve the situation.
I did in fact receive a full refund from the vendor that I originally purchased the eBook from. I never did receive any email(s) at all from the author of the book about this. I am assuming that ClickBank (the vendor) tried to contact the author about this as well, but when they didn't hear anything, they then asked if I wanted a refund.
