Karen Hopson contacted us in December, stating she was looking to sell exclusive ads to the "Bayer Lifetime of Awards" member program. With over 1,000,000 members, the sponsorship would include online presence on their web site, monthly newsletter and advertisements in their preferred service provider directory. We paid $597 to sponsor 3 counties, Loudoun County, Fairfax County and Prince William County. Ms. Hopson has repeatedly encouraged us to be patient while the program is getting launched, and made repeated excuses as to why none of the items she promised us (in writing, see attached) are able to be published. She will not issue a refund, as she states the refund period has passed. We paid for a 12 month sponsorhship and have requested a full refund based on her non performance. She is not cooperating at all. We hope nobody else is taken advantage of like we have been.
