    The way this is written it is not clear to me who is bad-mouthing who?

    Is there some confusion between the meaning of the words "licensee" and "licensor" perhaps?

    It would be less confusing to simply call a spade (or a company) a spade instead of dancing around with these terms and referring to "management".

    If this is Player Preferred - Firepay Interactive sending out the email (Lou - you may want to confirm the headers, please) then they are igniting a serious row with Steve Sorensen and his partner who were the owners of Hype Casino prior to their instructions to shut it down on April 30 to David Jenkins (Firebrand) and David Ohlson (Player Preferred)

    Either way, I wouldn't touch this operation with a bargepole until they all start acting with honour and integrity by PAYING THE PLAYERS!

    That's the number 1 priority and obligation here.

    This is Player Preferred sending out the email as it is coming directly from Firebrand's email server. Hype Management was cut out from server access some time back as I recall.

    Thanks KW - I thought as much but their confusing writing style did not make it clear.

    It's going to be interesting to see what Sorensen and Co. say in response - they are not going to be too pleased about being labeled the guilty party here when the "management" was actually through Firebrand (or so I am led to believe)

    There are red warning flags all over this group now as far as I am concerned.

    Edited to cross- reference this thread with an earlier Casinomeister thread at:http://www.casinomeister.com/forums...hype-withdrawal-experience-15.html#post160318 which details the origins of the issue here.

    A huge problem has been a lack of public communication on the issue. Hype Management has selectively talked to a few affiliates one on one while ignoring virtually everyone else. Problems can generally be solved through discussion, but when you clamp down on communication it leaves everything up to speculation.

    By "Hype Management" I take it you're referring to Ohlson and Jenkins at Player Preferred-Firebrand, Professor?

    You're right, of course - communication has been consistently awful and downright amateurish, and this whole issue is an acrimonious mess with players caught up in the middle.

    That should not be the case, anyway we look at it.

    Yes he just posted that at CAP. I still wish we could have been kept in the loop before this exploded the way it did.

    My information is that Justin is not a key decision maker in the mix, although he is reportedly "consulting" for the Queensland based Japanese investors who have apparently been lined up to be the fourth Player Preferred software operator.

    Given the present crisis, they are going to face a seriously uphill credibility battle when they launch.

    Hey Jetset - not wishing to cross info-swords with you ... :)

    I've been talking with Justin over the past 4 days and have put him in touch with a respected operator. Justin is not, to my knowledge, consulting to anyone in Australia.

    I hope it works out for him.

    You're closer geographically to the Aussie action than I am, so I bow to your superior info-sword macpomme!

    But are you absolutely sure that Justin is not consulting for the new Japanese licensee shaping up for launch with Player Preferred?

    Edited to add that this is really a bit of a side-show anyway - surely the main goal here should be to get Nix Court or PP-Firebrand or both to sort out the mess they have created for their players and affiliates?

    Nothing is sure here, and some conflicting stories are circulating about the entire incident. It just depends on who you talk to.

    IMO this hasn't played out and there is some truth to emerge yet.

    One thing I do believe is that after the conflicting parties sort themselves everyone will be paid and the software will live on. Just who will be in charge of what remains to be seen.
