well, lets see, considering I received an email notification at 9:30pm the night before the event, I would say I was VERY unhappy!!!!! Nothing on the active website or the event website listed the event was cancelled, and to cancel the event by email notification the night before the event, at 9:30 PM??????? Cant say anything good. Although the rating lists one star, it was all the site would allow, this event should be in the negatives!!!!!!!!!!!
They cancelled the race the night before. I emailed them to get my money back and their email address is invalid, so the email bounced back to me. They don't have a number on their website. They are a total scam. Don't even waste your time. Active should remove them from the site.
Hi fellow run-victims - I've done a bit of research on how to take
action against this guy. We all need to contact the Santa Barbara DA's
try and get this guy so that he can't rip off others. If you have the
time, contact the consumer protection agency about the fraud: http://www.countyofsb.org/da/CivilDivision/ConsumerProtection/ConsProtection.asp
The guy in charge is Allan Kaplan. Hopefully if there are enough
complaints that come in - they will pursue it. I imagine it will be
referred to a federal agency since the "hack" is now doing this in
other states too.
Check out the Golden Gate Bridge reviews. Active.com has finally responded - but not in the way we had hoped. Keep pushing Active.com to stop posting events by MOV!
i'm currently doing an expose on Matt Hackney, MOVfitness, MOVrun, HardMagic and any of the other stuff he is running. IF you have any information concerning Matt, please email email@example.com. I rather not expose my identity in the mean time but if you want to contribute to the story, please email me. He has to be stopped. thanks.
Thank you for voicing your concerns about the MOVFitness events. After looking into some of the most recent issues you mentioned in more detail, weve removed all MOVFitness events from the Active.com directory and have opted not to work with the organization at this time.
If you are waiting for a refund, we encourage you to contact MOVFitness again by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (805) 960-5310 as they have assured us they will provide refunds to anyone who is not completely satisfied with their events.
As previously mentioned, your feedback is invaluable. Again, thanks for the heads up and please keep your reviews and comments coming.
