My Pledge Music and Timo Tolkki's Avalon swindle

Post by Savi » Sun Jan 12, 2014 1:21 am

A lot of people are huge fans of Timo Tolkki, so we decided to pledge for his new project Credo signed with our names on the "thanks" section, which was managed by My Pledge Music.

As he changed his project to Avalon, we were promised to receive the Avalon CD instead.

We have never received anything, yet we haven't been refunded our money.

This is fraud, and this is illegal.

I hope you never trust a company, My Pledge Music, who make this kind of operations.

They said "we shipped the cds", which is a lie, because no person has received anything.

I hope something can be done to keep this fraud from happening again.

This sentence is incorrect ass well.

Must be:
I hope you never trust Timo Tolkki, who makes this kind of operations. Not only via Pledge Music.
You're welcome ^__^

This kinda stuff blows because there's a LOT of bands doing great things with this medium, and I hate to see some jackass ruin people's truth in the medium.
They let us have signatures on this forum???

Tolkki is finally involving and offering a full refund (so public [and private] bitching actually do work).

Well, it's what he must do, so I suppose in the end you can trust My Pledge Music and Timo Tolkki, but we have been a year and a half carrying this issue, so it's normal we felt defrauded.

I dare to think you would have felt the same way, although you may deny it.

So i correct my advise, from "don't trust My Pledge Music" to "if you're not listened, complain until you are".

Thanks for your attention!

Be excellent and party on, dudes =D

Did Luther ever get the guitar he supposedly won a few years ago? Never heard.......

Yeah, sometime complaining publicly does work especially if its a person or company who does not want their credibility ruined. Not even the BBB gets results as fast as Savi did! :lol: Good job!

I completely forgot about this. I don't think he ever got it because he never posted pictures as far as I know.

And I never heard from him since then. I thought he was the same guy as Hiro. Who knows? :roll:

You are so rude and arrogant that I can't take any of your answers seriously.

Are you like this in real life? I guess not.

I totally wasted my time asking for help in a place where apparently only basement nerds reunite.

Go out, get a life, and respect, if you want to be respected.

See you in real life.

that reminds me of back in the day when I used to go on IRC (it's an internet chat system full of nerds and geeks). I would go in a room seeking help about something, and immediately get trolled by a bunch of regulars in the chatroom.

@Savi, none of us were rude to you. Sure, some of us made little jokes but none were directed at you. Please don't get so upset! :(

Basement nerds, my ass. The people on this forum are some of the nicest people around. Give us another chance. Sheeeeeeesh. :roll:
