Digital Point - Shawn Hogan - Optigold out of business!

Discussion in 'Optigold ISP' started by syoung, Oct 10, 2008.

  1. #1
    Will Shawn Hogan or anyone at Digital Point have the nerve to admit to Optigold users that the company has gone out of business? It's just sad and disappointing how he has taken our money and sneaked out of sight leaving paid clients without support. We have asked several times for help with changing the company name in the software as can be seen on the forum. After emailing and leaving voice mail frequently over the last 8 months, now just to find the phone numbers disconnected and no responses. Can anyone tell us what the password used in Filemaker Pro so that we can edit this information ourselves? Also in my opinion Shawn should have the balls to let the public know "lifetime" support is dead as is the Optigold product and stop taking orders on the website!

    You sure have a lot of nerve to say this on the forums.

    I doubt it went out of business, and that Shawn is just working on something else.

    he's busy alright...he's probably working on his defense against eBay :eek:

    what nerve? :rolleyes: I'd be pissed too if I needed support and the owner bailed on everyone.

    I mean wasn't the forum section of DP was created (if not specifically) for OG users to hash out any issues amongst themselves anyway?

    You think it takes a lot of nerve to challenge someone that says "unlimited free tech support" and then refers them to a forum that he doesn't check or reply to? Maybe once you shell out a few thousand dollars for an outdated piece of software with a lot of bugs, you'll think twice about the comment you just made.

    I don't think Shawn or his company are out of business .... this forum is still up and I am sure that he has a lot of other investments .... unless he's a tax cheat and runs an un-registered business .... mmmmm like any of us would do that ....

    Yeah Google has about 80% tax (cut off) .... wonder if that will stand up in caught when I get done for tax evasion .... "but sir ..... Google has it's own tax".

    Nope doesn't work like that.

    If Shawn cared what you thought he obviously would have contacted you over the last 8 months. Trying to slander his name in his own forums is pretty low. My bet, this isn't going to get you any farther than you were LOL. :D

    why are you guys sticking up for Shawn when clearly he's hung so many out to dry? (as far as what I have read thus far here, and heard elsewhere).

    Do you have a vested interest with him somehow? If so, ebay might want to talk to you ;)


    he's not slandering his name :rolleyes: He's a user of his product, has not been able to contact him via any normal channels and thus has posted in the forum as a last ditch effort....how is that slandering his name? :rolleyes:

    BUT, I think you are exactly right about the 'caring' part and the 'getting any further'...you nailed that!

    pfft I knew Shawn I'd sure the hell wouldn't be broke lol. I'm not a millionaire, hell right now I'm not even a 20-dollar-aire.

    I'm just saying, he probably doesn't care. To be honest if this was my board and you were doing this to me I'd ignore you...

    And for your information, as far as I know/care DP is independent without Shawn. He may pay the bills, but tell me when the last time you saw him online was. My point is, if you want to find him, your probably NOT going to find him here.

    And to set this straight, I dont even know what ebay has against him. Maybe I'll google it, im a tad curious now.

    Edit:
    Timsdd...your really really active in this thread....
    Whats YOUR interest in Shawn?
    ...just curious...
