Default www.big-seas.com What happened?

Does anyone know what happened to this website? They had a huge collection of old school race videos. But they never answered the phone or replied to emails.

I believe that Rich Lurhs was a part of it?

They screwed me over. I ordered a Legend of Apache DVD. Paid around $60/70 bucks for it shipped. I remember them taking the money out of the account. Got the DVD a couple days later and I was happy.

4 months later, I was charged again by Big Seas. Went back through my history and couldn't find their name. I had my bank do a check and they found nothing either.

But I remember them taking the money out of my account before I recieved the DVD. I just can't prove it. Who the hell would charge a card 4 months after the product was shipped anyways.

I now own a $140 Apache DVD, approx. 40minutes long. Anyone wanna buy it?

Here is a portion of an e-mail that I pulled out of my e-mail archives:

"4) Customer Survey - 99% of all of our customers that responded LOVED the Apache and Cat Conquer DVD's! There was a consensus that the Apache DVD was a little pricey. So with that said, we are going to ship everyone who purchased our Apache DVD, our next DVD ABSOLUTELY FREE! (this will be ready to ship early Jan 05)"

I purchased the "pricey" version of the Apache DVD, I am still waiting on the next DVD - - - it is only approaching Jan 06. What is the latest news on Big-Seas? If they went under, that is fine. But as long term active members of the forum, and after pumping up the product, they should let us know what is going on.

I heard the DVD had steps and is too unstable to ship to the general public. But, word is that they have a great Betamax tape from 1982 that outperforms any current technology by 653%.

Sooooooo, if you have no record and the bank has no record and you can't find any history, are you sure?
