What Is Going On With The Product Review Place Site?

For everyone who has ever used The Product Review Place's site to post giveaways, find reviews and companies to work with, or just be social, you might find this email message a tad disturbing.

Yesterday when I tried to go to the site to list some of my giveaways, I received an error message stating that the site was taken down by the administrator and should be up soon.

Today I received this email.

Does anyone know what is going on??

Is our personal information safe??

A message to all members of The Brand Buzz Network
This is to inform you that The Product Review Place, LLC is no longer associated with The Product Review Place NING site. Papers were filed with the Secretary of State, Georgia last week for the dissolution of the LLC. We will be back online as soon as possible.

I hope that you trust your instincts moving forward and believe that I started TPRP and would NEVER do anything to jeopardize it. I refuse to comment publicly on what is happening with the business side as I believe it is truly unprofessional and we all have enough drama in our life without adding fuel to the fire.

I did bring TPRP offline yesterday on the advice of the lawyers because someone locked us out of the email account, Facebook, and twitter pages. Please be aware that all posts from the Facebook page, Twitter account, and theprplace@gmail.com email account are not under control of our network at this time. It is our recommendation to unfollow both the Facebook page and the Twitter account until we regain access so as not to fuel the flames. The NING site is owned by Lisa Samples and will be back online soon as we move forward. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions (lisa.samples@gmail.com.)

Also, for those of you who were members of our FB page please be aware that our community manager, Susan, was not and is not involved in any of the gossip you may or may not have heard. We think she has done a fabulous job and we hope she will continue to work with us as we move forward.

All Blogger Select dues will be returned to those that request it, all subscriptions have been cancelled until further notice.

Sincerely,
Lisa Samples

The only thing I have been able to find is one strange tweet linking to a Facebook post that is no longer in existence.

I did a Twitter search thru Hoot Suite, and found your post, as well as this tweet, before the comment was removed from FB.


Wow! @lisasamples co-owner of The Product Review Place has pulled down site and is accused of stealing $1000+! Not good! http://t.co/Fvtcbqv

That is all I know as of right now.

I'd love an update on what is going on, as I visit the site regularly.

Crystal Marie said...

Yea, I'm in the dark about the whole thing as well... the email I received today was my first indicator that something was not as it should be...

I'm curious.

I'm trying to remember where I've heard her name and The Product Review Place. I was out of blogging for about a year and a half. Didn't TPRP have a different owner at one time? Jyl? Or am I thinking of someone completely different?

Keep us updated if you hear any news!

thanks

The email specifically said " if you have any questions please don't hesitate to email me"

You each need to email Lisa Samples with any questions you may have!

Got that email too. If anyone finds out what is going on, I'd like to know too!

TPRP doesn't house any personal information other than your email address and it is safe. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me directly. In the meantime the letter sent to the community contains my personal email address and I would appreciate if you could remove it from your post.

I am not sure what is going on either. I had tons of stuff bookmarked over there so I hate that it is gone now because I never kept any other records of it.
