Have lodged a serious comprehensive claim against them accusing them of all sorts of things and now awaiting a court date. in the mean time i reported them to the UK Insolvency agency who are looking into it. If they take up the case then they will squash everyone associated with them, the Official Receiver can dissolve the company and go after all the current and former directors up to seven years previous, as i understand it.

If i get a judgment for Civil fraud i am going straight next door to the police station and filing a complaint for criminal fraud too. We are not getting any money out of these guys and the only way to deal with them now is as harshly as possible.I will chase this till the entire family pay up or are ruined as several have been directors. Because they have given a false address to companies house they will be struck off from being directors for a long time and that is fraud in its self. Their family accounts could be seized. Of course the next action is to check if they have filed proper VAT returns with Customs and Excise. They make MI5 look like pussy cats! Virtually unlimited powers of seizure entry and arrest.

Just a reminder, alpha technology is a limited company. That means if they already spend all the customer money, they might be required by law to cover only up to 500gbp in case of bankruptcy ;]
They still might have some funds left on their bank accounts or paypal. If you still didnt sue them better hurry up before all the money disappears completely.

You can name former directors etc as part of suit.  You paid X months ago, they were there then.

Likely that tangent goes nowhere, but if it were me I'd be applying pressure everywhere I could anyhow.   Last time I was involved in litigation I added the other guy's wife, kid, accountant, everyone.  He'd made the mistake of putting them on his payroll and adding them as officers of the company.  As soon as my lawyer found that out, they were named as defendants and served.  Subpeona someone's wife and kid for a deposition and charge them with criminal conspiracy to commit fraud and that gets their fucking attention PDQ.  Suddenly they get all infused with this sudden desire to find common ground.

In this case that's dear old dad and the brothers at least.

These assholes have been given every opportunity to deliver a product or refund people's money.  What happens to them after this is their fault.

I am very sure that it was cleared up before - paypal clearly stated that they were not holding any funds of Alpha's.  That was just another AT lie.

You can dig back thru this whole thread for the history of that conversation if you want.  From what I recall, it was determined that under no circumstances would paypal have held funds from someone for the period of time alpha claimed.

Either way tho, why you would possibly believe AT about having funds held up at paypal, when they have cleared lied continuously, is beyond me, heh...  It was a pretty clear point the finger tactic when that coindesk article came out.

since they are giving some people paypal refunds it's either coming back from the frozen funds or a bank account that has actual money in it!

I believe the paypal/frozen story was also corroborated by some users who said that PayPal had marked their account as fradulent and frozen, and was one of the reasons why they weren't immediately reversing matters. The CoinDesk article came after the fact.

Where's all the AT fan folk now?

I can tell you from first hand experience that PayPal has an automated fraud alert system that freezes accounts that were either involved in or connected to some kind of activity that break their terms of service. With that said, I had done business with one of these fraudulent accounts through no fault of my own. PayPal automatically froze my account with a little under $2k USD in it for a total of 6 months. Then they invited me back like nothing ever happened and released my funds. Needless to say I'll never leave a penny in my PayPal account again. PayPal are crooks themselves, but there is a good chance they froze Alpha Sprouts money for some time, if not indefinitely.

This is what BitPay says:
"As a payment processor, BitPay has no recourse or involvement in the fulfillment of a transaction. For this same reason fully paid invoices require explicit merchant approval to be refunded."
and
"We have already received several complaints regarding this merchant. Our compliance team has already restricted the account activity and is trying to negotiate resolution of outstanding purchaser compliants with the merchant."
They cant help you to get your money back, but if you need proof of payment e.g. for court then they can provide u with the url of your paid invoice.

Since Alpha Sprouts Tech is silent I'm going to look into my magic eight ball for some answers.

It looks cloudy, hard to see, wait I think I see something, here it comes. Ah yes, the answer is "Ask again later".

I guess they are refunding everyone's 30% deposit because they don't plan to ever ship a product. If you paid via BTC you're SOL. The rest of the funds have been seized in one form or another and any refunds being sent are only going out because the funds are essentially frozen unless returned. If they actually built these mining rigs they are going to keep every last one of them for their own mining farm. They will mine with them until they are worthless and only then will they ever leave their possession. Since they kept 70% of everyone's money, excluding those who have gotten full refunds, they ended up with a free mining farm. Leave it to accountants to come up with a crazy SCHEME like this.
