I am so, so sorry. I love my readers and I only try to do the best with my blog I am so sorry to say that I along with my readers were apparently SCAMMED by Gina Parker PR. I thought I was doing something good and fun for the members of our awesome blogosphere. Come to find out I was wrong and I feel like shit. I hope in posting this I am wrong and that it is just a big misunderstanding, but I fear I am not.
In working under good faith with Gina Parker PR I would promote an awesome social media/blog hop between blogger and Twitter peeps. Since the "How Sweet It Is" party started it was going strong...and then as of Thursday it started to fall to pieces when I started to wonder if this was real or not. I noticed last night that she had deleted her Twitter account and then her Facebook account. Of course I became concerned and called on bloggy friends to sound off my concerns to. I emailed Gina my concerns and then received a message from Gina stating that her mother was sick and she sold her "contacts" to another business woman but was reassured that "Lisaa" (the new owner) would be taking over 100% and continue the giveaway and everything as is.
Well as of tonight I realized the now what was Gina Parker PR website has been deleted along with her Twitter and FB page but I did find this site and her LinkedIn Site....and this Bloggy Mom site.
I have every email, every email where she answered every answer correctly and it pisses me off. I do NOT like to be fucked with and I do not like my lovelys to be fucked with and this is just wrong!!!! So I will be "moving" the posts so no one else gets hurts or sends her their money for a giveaway we can no longer find. I am so sorry I got involved with this and am so sorry I promoted it to you all. Please, please forgive me. I only want to do right by my lovelys and am so sorry I pulled you all into it. I feel like shit.
I will never trust another blogger like this again, I just can't. I pride myself too much on being honest. I suggest EVERYONE whom sent Gina Parker PR money for this event put in a REFUND REQUEST for fraud. You did not get what you paid for. You were paying to be added to the list for an event that ran until Feb 14th. Well it's not Feb 14th and the list is gone so I think that is a legit complaint right? I do not know if Paypal will do this is but I think it is worth the try.
If you have any suggestions or insight of what we can do to right this wrong please feel free to email me anytime! p.s. I even tried emailing her....the email came back! I see no way that this is not a scam. I mean hello??? Why doesn't anyone know what is going on???
