Encore went tits up

I PM'ed Encore several times as well as a few vendors but have gotten no responses from anyone. Leads me to believe they are no longer around?

it's the holiday season.. a lot have taken a few weeks off, besides it's a friday/saturday so give it till Tuesday to hear back. btw, making a thread about a vendor to complain, unless you want to warn everyone from a fraud, really doesnt do anyone any good. all parties will be left with a bitter taste in their mouth, so just be a bit patient... the guys might be busy putting up a xmas tree

edit: i guess what the person above me said

See above. Holiday season? Not sure about you but if I ran a retail business this would be the time of year to cash in and sell your products

BTW, my intent wasn't to complain I was just making a comment.

So in other words you're spreading unsubstantiated rumors about a company being out of business when you don't know if they really are or not?

People have been sued for less than that, you could be costing them business because people will now start thinking they're gone, it will show up in Google indexes, etc.

It's because it's the weekend. Try PMing practically any vendor, they won't respond until usually Monday morning

There's this old technology you should have tried first... it's called a phone.

Wow, a whole lot of options and no facts. Let me try to rephrase the title...

Can't get in touch with Encore, are they still in business? HELP! Thanks guys.

Instead of commenting, can someone that's local to Encore tell us if they're still around or not.

Damn. NO ONE READS. Try CALLING THEM. Even on a weekend, they phone will have a voicemail. And the OC is about as local as it gets.

Mods please do delete this thread as It's getting out of hand.

It seems English is a second language for many members here and cannot read that my attempts were not over the weekend but A SPAN OF 2 1/2 WEEKS.

My apoligies my title was offensive, was just implying it as a question.

You cant really blame the OP for thinking this even though he shouldn't have started a thread about it.. the last time Encore Innovation was active on the forum (according to their profile) was 11-10-2009
