It has been more than 8 months now, Czech Point 101 still keeps my 60,500 CZK in whole and refund me nothing. They have stopped answering my email since 2017.10.17, and they never contact me in any form since then.
Since when I am sure they are fraud, instead of just being a company with bad service? I believe it was the moment I saw Nathan Brown’s email on 2017.10.17. At the end of that email, he wrote:
He was lying to my face. There is no way that his lawyer can modify the reservation an escrow contracts without having me involved. It simply doesn’t work like that. After the lawyer review the contracts, if he think there is something need to be modified, he should ask me for confirmation first, because I am the one who will sign the contract, not him. The fact is that, Czech Point 101’s lawyer never contacted me, there is no way he has ever worked for me. So by then I know they are fraud, and they keep lying even after I have saw through their lie.
Even if my purchase was not terminated, they would not provide any lawyer’s service to me. That was their plan and they try to cheat me at the very beginning. Also they wouldn’t give me the translated version of contracts, although all these are listed in their “Gold” package. They simply don’t provide the service they promised, after taking my money.
I hired a lawyer to send them the pretrial. Czech Point 101 obviously don’t take me as a customer any more (although they still have my money without providing the service). They agreed to return me 50,000 CZK, but the condition is to remove all my negative reviews against them, shutdown this website completely, and promise never write anything negative to them. They called this a “generous offer”, but it is not. By hiring a lawyer to send them the pretrial and process the negotiation, I already paid my lawyer 14,400 CZK. This legal expanse should be on them, because they terminated the communication with me and I don’t have other choice. They don’t compensate my legal expanse, which means the actual refund for me will be 50,000 – 14,400 = 35,600 CZK. In Nathan Brown’s email, he said they can return me 50% of the deposit, which is 30,250 CZK. Now they return me 35,600 CZK and request me erase all negative reviews against them, and I have to promise not to say a word about them in the future, I really don’t think it is a “generous offer”.
I refused their so called “generous offer”. Even if they return me the 50,000 CZK, they still took my 10,500 CZK and I will still be their paid customer. As a paid customer, it is my right to comment on their service. They can not prevent me from writing a review against them. They should not cheat my money at the first place, and now they don’t refund me at all, if I don’t agree with their condition. This is simply wrong.
After that, I have two choices: one is to continue suing them; and the other is to drop the case and only expose them on the Internet. I took the second option, because suing them takes too many time and efforts, and the case will last for years. According to what my lawyer said, I can only sue them “unjust enrichment”. Even if I win the case in the end, they just return all the money they took from me, and in best case they pay my legal cost, nothing else, no further penalty! The time I spend on the case will worth much more than those money, so it is simply a bad deal. To be honest, I am quite disappointed by the litigation system in Czech Republic.
I gave them negative review on Google Maps. Czech Point 101’s owner immediately replied my review – not because they care how I think about them, but because they want to minimize the effect of my negative review. Nathan’s reply are full of biased information and lies, he tries to confuse the audience. He also requested me to write him any proposal, that’s a fake kindness, as he hasn’t replied my email on 2017.10.17 yet. He is just pretending.
Some of my friends know about the story and they helped me to make some tests on Google Maps’ review. After pointing out that Czech Point 101’s positive reviews are fake, they immediately hired another two accounts with Local Guide level 3 to write reviews for them, and try to make the reviews more “real”. It turns out that Czech Point 101 is a company that has no bottom line at all, they put all their efforts on cheating people.
Khuppi (Czech Point 101’s staff) was introduced by a friend of mine, who is a member of “Jehovah’s Witnesses”. Khuppi himself is also a member of “Jehovah’s Witnesses”. I don’t think Khuppi believes in God for real, as cheating people for money is prohibited by the Bible. I have told my friend the whole story, and hope him at least not to introduce Khuppi to someone else.
As for Nathan Brown, the owner of Czech Point 101. He is the leader of this fraud, and he plays very dirty. Czech Point 101 has existed for 10+ years, and I believe they have cheated many people. I will try my best to warn people to avoid Czech Point 101.
