CherryPal's $99 netbook scam

psergiu (67614) writes "Hailed everywhere as revolutionary, Africa, the $99 netbook from CherryPal has failed to deliver. At all. Thousands of orders were made and nobody has received yet a unit or even their money back. Max Seybold, the CEO of CherryPal has even started to send threatening e-mails to the owners of blogs with unfavorable comments posted by the users. The only Africa netbook that was supposed to be delivered turned out to be a hoax too.
So, no $99 netbook for us yet."

Here's the Google Cache [209.85.129.132] of one of the pages from Teleread.org [teleread.org] which were forced offline by Max Seybold. Unfortunatelly the comments where lots of users complained that they were forced to pay using Wester Union - which does not issues refunds so their money are gone forever - were not preserved.
