I see that James has posted to the Zubee Zone main forum in an attempt to excuse his behaviour and encourage members to spend money with him again. I will not try to take him on there, in a forum that is unmoderated for the most part. I hope though, that anyone who is reading this thread in the MC forum and knows people who might join there, can pass on this info.
These responses were to one of our team, and they are posted with her permission (I have removed her name). If this is not in order, then please go ahead and remove according to what is acceptable here in the MC Forum (thanks Tommie)

This is the response I received from him last night through Paypal
Late November the 5th, I realized my site was being scammed and had to reset the site. All site data including the user accounts is GONE. I wanted to tell everyone what had happened, but the only way I could contact anyone was from the CBBC II Zubee Zone which the leader Clare banned me from. That cut my ties to 95% of my members. If you know her or are apart of her team, tell everyone that the site has gone nowhere and is still up. However, there is no more free zubees...They cost $125 a month to keep, and I cannot pay for you or anyone else to have fun on my site. My disabled veteran Marine monthly check does not afford me that opportunity. Resetting the site did get rid of the multiple scammers I had operating on my site and THEY will not be repaid. And even though if you read my Terms of Service there is a NO REFUND POLICY for ANY and ALL purchases made on my site, just like any other TE out there, I will TRY to make this right to the ones I owe. Right now, I don't even have $5 to buy groceries with and I do not get my Veterans check until the end of this month. If you give me a chance to repay you, I will. However, if PayPal debits my account because of this, I will close my Paypal account and stand by my No Refund Policy for everyone else involved. I will work with you if you work with me, but StellarHits.com is NOT going anywhere, with OR without Paypal. Thank you.

P.S. ALL user data was lost, even the account data. You CAN sign up again so we can communicate that way, but you will need to either use a different email address or tell me when you sign up because it won't send you a confirmation email if you use the same email address again. In that situation, I would need to activate your new account manually. You do not need to make any new purchases. That would just be a good way for us to get this straightened out..."
Following that, there was an email exchange in which 2 of the 3 emails sent to him were just too bad to repeat here or anywhere. This was yesterday.
Here is one of them and her reply (please note - she did not escalate it to a claim, he did)
"I told paypal that you did get some use out of your $47 and that you KNOW websites like mine do NOT issue refunds. Read my Terms of Service and you will see I DON'T give refunds either. I thought if we could come to an agreement we could BOTH accept, this would be resolved quite simply. However, since your $47 claim has put my PayPal account in the negative, I couldn't pay you if I wanted to. You see, in the last 7 days, I have made $4.99 on that worthless site. Think it will hurt me for PayPal to limit my account? Ha, ha, ha, it feels like it is ALREADY limited, lol.....I will be waiting for your name or email or IP address to show up on my site so I can block you. Go try to rip off someone with some money....This disabled veteran is broke."
And her response back:
"1 - I got less than 24 hours at your site before you trashed the database. A lifetime upgrade is longer than a day.
2 - I have not received any refund from paypal, nor did I escalate anything.
3 - your status as a disabled veteran is a shame, but has no bearings on a business transaction.
I have no intention of ripping anyone off. It was YOU who ripped ME off. I bought that in good faith to try to support you and your site. I will not make the mistake of doing that again.
And I WILL make sure I spread the word of what a SCAM your site is."
