I e-mailed Olivier maybe a dozen times and never got a reply from him... Then I finally went to his forums and both Post/PMed him, and got replies to my PMs stating that Olivier is death sick at some hospital from his sister Suzanne (?) @ 3am and 4am in the morning... What was she doing answering PMs in the middle of the night is beyond me ofcourse :shrug:

and then I noticed Olivier updated the site and posted to this thread SAD DAY
I posted to that thread and my posts were deleted and my account was closed... When I sent an e-mail asking what's happening, I received an e-mail from sister Suzanne again, stating that Olivier is in a coma... now why posts were deleted and my account's been closed??

Now to clarify things, Olivier got water-cooling gear from CoolTechnica back in November 2003 and didn't make a payment ever since... So if it's hiding from me, or in disguise as sister Suzanne, he's got a reason for that... which i still do not want to believe he can do such a thing...

but anyway, if he's doing the same thing to the customers, that doesn't sound good... considering the fact that Lux-Design is going out of business...

so if anyone has any info I'd really appreciate it...

Profit Margins ARE pretty slim if he can't make money by selling stuff without paying the distributors

Have you contacted an attorney about this Bruce? Or is the $$ not worth the effort? I have a friend of the family here who is a non-practicing attorney; I can run this by her and see if she has any suggestions re: Canadian law and business practices

HW Labs was one of many places Chip scammed and still scams to this day just under other business names in different fields. I found some posts around about his other businesses about how he pulls the same shit over and over again.

The dude should be put out of his missery... save the rest of the world from having to deal with his BS.

OMG Chip Eckert still pulls the same shit eh? unbeliavable...

If i'm not mistaking, he disguised himself as an independent water-cooling female tester, no?

Guess, this dude also turns out to be a "Chip Inside"... - very bad j/k

let me show you guys something:

Now since he didn't return neither my e-mails nor phone calls, I posted a message on his forum asking where he's hiding??? He didn't reply to the post... but when i PMed him, someone did

PM to Olivier over at LUX-DESIGN Forums - .PDF FORMAT

Sister Suzanne is responding to my PM at 3:20am EST on a monday...
She's a cool sister ofcourse, who can admin / monitor the site, the store, does shipments so she can respond to PMs at 3:20am... Even though, she doesn't answer the phone calls, nor e-mails...

2nd reply from Suzanne - .PDF FORMAT

She (?) doesn't even know who I am. I didn't mention anything like i'm Olivier's friend or anything... and yet she's emotional... :shrug:

She(?) has a job and a family of her own, and yet she's up all night...
hrmm maybe i should contact Penn & Teller

EDIT: edited the link/EDIT

Looks like we are getting there pH... We sent him a final notice both via e-mail and fax... -and I know that someone (he/she) received and read the e-mails (thx to Re@dNotify)- and his time expires soon... and looks like we are going to have to take legal action... this thing started to making me sick actually, so it's beyond $$ right now...

Just to be devils advocate here...
what if he is sick...
and it is his sister...
mebe you should get some facts first...
mebe call some hospitals in the area...
if nobody has heard of him there then maybe legal action is nessary..
but i wouldn't feel to good serving someone some court papers.. but only being able to do it to a guy in a coma...
my 2¢ worth

is that consistent with the wording of their "going out of business" sale MadHacker?

I would argue not.

Well crap. Bought some stuff from them a few weeks ago, now I feel all dirty...I don't care if the dude's in a coma or not. If they've got someone minding the store and taking orders, that someone oughta be paying the bills.

Madhacker, if Olivier is really sick, am I the only one that's been told about this? no one else knows anything about it, but me...
and also being in a coma bullshit still doesn't explain why my account is closed and my posts been deleted in his forum.

If it's really the sister, who's this then posting in the forums: SAD DAY
Suzanne disguising herself as Olivier?

If i believe that Olivier is really sick, i would be more than happy to run for his help.
But he's making money on something that he didn't pay for, and when asked about payment he's in a coma. Come'n... don't be naive...

Actually this whole bullshit is making me really sick, and it's beyond the point of, not paying for the merchandize that's been purchased 6 months ago.
