    Ladies and gentlemen it is with a heavy heart that I step forward today and nominate forum member soupnazi and his company ISBC Group to the shit list.
    It has been one of the most frustrating and unnerving experiences of my online life.
    I'm sure that there must be some forum members who have had experience with these people. Well I would love to hear from you if you have.
    I have exercised amazing patience and constraint in regards to these people but at last about two days ago it became crystal clear that I have been screwed.
    It has been nearly 2 years since I paid them just over $2000 for their services. They seemed so sincere and professional in the beginning.
    Some of you might have the unfortunate luck to know of or have been involved with ISBC Group.
    This company was started by a member that goes by soupnazi.
    If you know of anyone who has had work done by them or can find one single person who had anything good to say about them at all I would love to hear it. In my case they got a little over $2000 from me and almost two years and countless delays and excuses later I have nothing at all to show for it.
    Whats most frustrating about the whole situation is how legitimate they appeared.
    Alex/aka soupnazi created a whole batch of training videos for their latest creation which they called an Isnog. An Isnog is basically an auto blog which uses a plugin that pulls keyword related ads from the various PPC companies. They obviously put a lot of time and effort into making the system,the training videos etc..
    So i just don't get why in the hell they would just go silent all of a sudden.
    This pattern has been repeated at least four times over the last two years. First everything's going as planned then there's some sort of a setback, a long period of ignored support tickets and IMs and then a comeback, and everything looks like its going to progress and then another setback and then another long period of ignored support tickets and IMs and on and on the cycle goes. They are currently in the ignoring IMs and support ticket phase of the most current cycle.
    About 2 days ago I decided to take the chance and PM soupnazi. He hasn't posted in a long time but still regularly logs in. Imagine my shock when he responded to my PM. I simply asked if ISBC Group was still in business to which he responded: retiring , selling all source code etc..
    Great I thought. At least he responded. So i replied that I was very sorry to hear he was stepping down but what would this mean for someone like myself who had paid a great deal of money a very long time ago but had not received anything in return.
    Of course he has yet to reply and will not.
    Its obvious that he had completely forgotten that I was one of the people that he had screwed over when he responded to my PM in the first place.
    So my reasons for posting this now is in hopes that he will want to protect any kind of reputation he has and make amends, and also to try and find others who have been wronged by these people and get them to speak out about it as well.
    I hope that when you see this Alex you suddenly grow a conscience and make reparations.
    God knows I have been as patient and civil as a human being can be with you. And in return for that I get silence.
    As I stated in my last email to you. I will never let this go. One way or another I will be paid back. Whether it be the money you owe me or by the precious hours of your life spent in litigation of some form. You have jerked me around for far too long for me to just let this go.

    So there you have it folks, a little long in the tooth but this is something that I have been dealing with for a very long time. And its also something that began online and stayed online the entire time.
    In other words, I haven't been able to vent about this debacle to anyone until now. So forgive me if I ranted a little bit.
    All in all though I think I remained on subject and presented my case with more facts than emotion.
    At the end of the day I know the odds of me getting any money back from these scammers are pretty slim.
    But like I stated earlier. One way or another I will get something back.
    It does my heart good to know that this post might be something that haunts a man whose getting on in years who wants to look back at his life and believe that he was over all a good man who never did any real harm to anyone.
    Well maybe when hes sitting out on his front porch relaxing while the days go by this post here on this forum will pop into his head and he will be forced to remember that he HAS done harm. He HAS lied. And he HAS cheated someone who meant him no harm and paid him money in good faith to perform a service.

    I post the following links to their current marketing sites and youtube videos so that if in your future travels you come across any of them you will think twice about getting involved.

    This was the WSO they ran. Wonder why they didn't offer this on BHW? Could it be they had already pissed too many people off here ? Hmmm.

    Hey I was just thinking about how when Alex and all are sitting around the table tomorrow I hope they don't forget to give thanks to all the suckers like myself who helped make your thanksgiving possible. I will probably be eating something that costs .99 cents from Jack in the Box.
    Happy Thanksgiving !

    Dante, all of your posts with the exception of this one are junk (non-contributory "great post" type junk posts to be specific) and were all made today.

    I'm willing to guess that you're in some way associated with one of the parties being complained about above and want the OPs email address for something sinister. Maybe a libel suit? Or maybe I'm just a cynic.

    Either way, I know I wouldn't fork over my personal email address under these circumstances.

    Sorry for offending you "AtAllCost" I am very new to forums and I dont' have any clue how these work. The only reason my post look like spam or whatever you want to call them is because I had to make 15 post to send a direct message because I am new. I didnt know it would offend people on her and I am very sorry. I just thought it was ironic that somebody posted a post about ISBC group that i had similar experiences with and I wanted to talk about it off of the forum because I'm not familiar with this...but have a great day anyways

    Forget about him, I reported him and he is back to 0 posts, he was just filling the forum with crap.

    So, back to this soupnazi issue. So you are complaining about something that happened 2 years ago, and completely outside of BHW?

    The original transactions took place nearly two years ago but the services were solicited here on this forum via PM and also advertised in his sig at the time.
    I'm not even sure that there was a BST thread then. Soupnazi still visits this forum. I also felt as though it might be helpful to forum members if I brought this up here in the event that if in the future someone from the forum were to come across this company offering there services else where they might want to think twice about getting involved.
    I do have an update of sorts.
    I was contacted by one of the reps on Skype after months of silence and was told refunds would be issued once the company was sold. If and when this will actually happen is unknown of course. The other reason I think is worthy of bringing this up here is that if indeed another party decides to carry on where these people left off and they do intend to offer there services here ,which is a real possibility, that any potential customers approach with extreme caution.
