Better Universe Calls It Quits

Robert Bowen who is one of the board members of BetterUniverse.com sent out an e-mail to everyone in the company tonight announcing that the end had come.

For those who are not familiar with BetterUniverse, they started out as Movie Club Plus. In early 2005 they launched as BetterUniverse and partnered with Berl Wolk who started doing infomercials back in the 70's. The idea was that you built a team in a 3xsomething matrix and Mr Wolk was going to air a series of infomercials and place everyone who came in from the TV blitz in our downline.

Well as far as I know that never materialzed, we made some matrix money and ordered a BUNCH of Movies that I earned with my credits and now its over.. Here is part of Robert's letter:

To The Members of BetterUniverse.com,

I am sorry to say that I have not been very involved with BetterUniverse.com for some time, only keeping our servers running for our members and being a member of the board of directors of our parent corporation

Our previous president wanted to control everything else in its entirety, including commissions, cash flow, our programmers, and paying our vendors. He said he needed to do this to keep everything in control. This was how things were operating until late in January 2007 when I emailed our previous president to express my continuing frustration with the way he was running the corporation and several days later he sent me a certified letter announcing to me that he "resigned" without any warning or notice of any kind. Our previous president, who always told us "Winners never quit and Quitters never win", had quit each and every one of us without any notice or warning of any kind. But after researching what has happened over the past months, he really left us many months ago.

I have written our previous president a series of letters to try to save the company, and I even gave our previous president one last chance to return the money by 5pm today, I told him without it BetterUniverse.com would be forced to close, from this letter, I received a response from an Lawyer, that our previous president hired with corporate funds, that he does not owe the corporation any funds. So it is due to these actions by our previous president, and with a very heavy heart that I must announce the closure of BetterUniverse.com.

I am sorry for telling you this via email, but I thought it was the right thing to let you know what had happened. No one was charged for their benefits in February. Even if you received a credit card receipt, the merchant company assures me that you were not charged. I thank you in advance for your understanding in this matter.



Sincerely,

Robert T Bowen
Board of Directors
