I had called Justin's mother. I felt that his horrible actions needed some serious attention. I certainly didn't want this issue to keep growing because when I placed my call to her, the tally of people owed money was greater than $1,200. I'm happy to see that Justin's mother has claimed to have paid $1,000 in refunds to due PayPal contacting their house with many phone calls. Maybe PayPal isn't the "dud" that we make it out to be < Ha! >.
I'm glad to hear that your reimbursement for the HE-400 drivers should be payed in 2 installments, Ulogin. That is good news. According to your post, you should probably be receiving a payment soon. I'll keep my fingers crossed. I wonder how bad the $1,000 pay-out by Justin's parents will put a riff between them when he gets back from Alaska? Certainly, won't be the best situation.
Hopefully, this will all work out for everyone on the short end of the stick. If I can help in any way, just send me a PM.
