I received an email from alpha regarding their miners. I can't believe this isn't a dead company by now. Even butterfly labs got shut down for a minute.  Roll Eyes

Well...this week i got my deposit refunded in full from my Bank.
Started the proceedings a while back and first they (Alpha) replied with the standard answer (more than x months bla bla since the time of purchase).After they failed to deliver the miners by 30 sept i continued to argue my case with the bank (and also Paypal). While Paypal still wasn t cooperative the bank managed to refund my money.

yep, there are a couple of avenues people can take in terms of argument and it seems it just depends on who you talk to.

my bank outright laughed at their trying to recategorize this as a B2B purchase and I mean the fraud rep laughed out loud and said "oh no, they can't do that", they asked for supporting docs to back that up, I provided them and they reversed the charge in about a week.  it sat as a provisional credit for a couple of weeks then was finalized.

even in that circumstance, however, they wanted to wait until after they'd missed that first delivery date to file, and some people have said that this issue of delivery was primary to their bank, so this issue of delivery date is something that should be documented well in case you need it.  


there is a lot of info on dates and supporting evidence for citing that they missed their delivery dates in this thread and on the sites a couple of websites people have put up.

some people are also trying to work with PayPal to get a case file built up with them to make this easier for people.  As some have said it comes down to documenting there also.  Those that have successfully gotten refunds from PayPal please post reference numbers so they can be cited by others arguing for refunds.   Ditto for those that have won court cases.

It's great that some people have gotten their money back.   If we can get some more documentation others will be able to do the same.  

Those that have already done these things are in a position to help those still trying to get their money back.  Hopefully we can get that and blow a gigantic hole through the PayPal wall and the same with the court cases.   With case #'s etc., for people to cite in their filings, those cases just get stronger.

I have just had a PM from an Alpha customer who has just won a claim. Alpha's defence was STRUCK OUT and a judgement was issued against them. Alpha literally have NO DEFENCE. They have and will pay claims won against them. You can do some pretty heinous shit to a company once you have a judgement, including freezing bank accounts, summoning them to court to reveal their assets and making them bankrupt.

You can also raise the debt with the high court if they don't pay up (It costs around £60 to do this).  Once high court enforcement officers are involved they don't mess about.  When they turn up they won't be leaving without the money owed - even if they have to strip the place bare of assets.

Update: https://alpha-t.net/news/viper-chip/

Greetings Miners!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us throughout this journey. We know there has been some speculation about us and our project and we are now glad to finally put that to rest, and show you proof of our fabricated and packaged Viper chips that are now in hand.

https://alpha-t.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/image-2.jpeg

https://alpha-t.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/image.jpeg

https://alpha-t.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/20141010135457.jpg

This is a major milestone and hurdle we have overcome in terms of risk, time and money. Now that we have working chips all we need to do is assemble these and ship; we are of course currently assembling the devices and shipping will follow once this is complete. All fully paid orders should be ‘processing’ and will change to ‘completed’ once the order has shipped. We will also be quickly releasing a video demonstrating our chips hashing as an update to the community.

Where many new ASIC companies have failed to tape-out and produce working chips we have succeeded. While we are regrettably late in our shipping schedule please note our hash rates are still 10 times originally promised and with our profit sharing scheme not to mention the batch 1 loyalty bonuses we believe we have done our best to make up for this. Generally speaking most if not all ASIC manufacturers have never delivered on time and with batch 1 soon behind we have every intention of taking what we have learned and overcoming this in our next generation product.

Famous last words.  One of the other shitty manufacturers in the ASIC manufacturing space, my good friends at Black Arrow, who suck possibly worse than these shifty bastards, had their chips delivered in May, if memory serves.

After that it has been a slew of problems, not to mention issues arising from proper CE, UL etc. certifications, or lack thereof, it would seem.  Of course they issued the same sunshine up your ass notice saying that they'd receive chips on X day, I think it was May 7, and start shipping literally the next day, with all orders going out within a month or some such bullshit.  Yeah, right.  somewhere around 5 months after those retards got their chips in, a lot, if not most, people have still not received their miners. 

the same is true for Alpha.  They need testing.  they need quality markings.  they will need to work kinks out more likely than not.  You can't simply knock these together and ship them out.  these are electrical devices pulling a shit-ton of power and running in people's homes. 

As much as people may want to get these ASAP, as Black Arrow found out, the result can be literally be catastrophic if the quality is not vetted thoroughly, as those morons shipped miners that literally started on fire.  Nice job, Black Arrow, you bunch of lying, not to mention grossly incompetent, shitbags.

Alpha has a long way to go.  I will admit I'm surprised they even have the chips.  I'll be more surprised if things go anywhere close to as planned and they ship any major quantity within the next month.
