We are always happy to recommend people that do good jobs for us and the VIP Members of WeLoveCostaRica.com however once in a while, we come across a someone like Rodney Carbguif who acts in a ‘very unprofessional manner’ he said in a typical British understatement.

Unfortunately this irresponsible behaviour is all too common here in Costa Rica and it clearly reflects very negatively on Rodney Carbguif but also does not help the business people with whom he associates.

Hi Rodney

Although my marketing helps sell more real estate than any Realtor I know in Costa Rica, I am not a Realtor but might have an interest in attending.

The presentations will be in English or Spanish?

Hello?

You know I reach 25,000 readers and practically everybody worthwhile on Costa Rica Real Estate??

And you want to ignore me?

Is that really a wise thing to do?

=======================

Email from Rodney Carbguif to Scott Oliver:

Mon, Dec 7, 2015 at 8:20 PM

Look, I know you are reaching that huge amount of people, but understand that I am not stealing your money, I had to pay the rent of the venue and some banners, next week some attendee will pay me and from that money I refund your $160 dollars, I never, never pretend to take your money, for other way I don’t know why you decline to come to the event, you are the only of all people already buy the tickets that decide not come. I am not a big Company ,I just a person trying to make this kind of event happen

Sorry again

6th January 2015 Posted on his Google+ page

Ah! This is the real estate conference that I paid for, that you cancelled and have repeatedly refused to refund my money, is that correct??

=======================

Email from Rodney Carbguif to Scott Oliver:

Wed, Jan 6, 2016 at 9:22 AM

Well, Iook, I am not in Costa Rica right now, I am in Honduras, due to a medical problem with my mother, I will be back to Costa Rica until next week, and I already see your post about your money in Google+, thanks a lot, if you think I am keep me that money, your are totally wrong, I will refund you that, and let me tell you, I dont know how you did say me that you make thousands of money and are acting like a person in huge economics problems, like a poor latino person,

Usually the refund of money all the events organizer makes after the event, but I will looking for the way to pay you back that, because I am seeing you are in serious money problems

=======================

Email from Scott Oliver to Rodney Carbguif:

Wed, Jan 6, 2016 at 9:42 AM

The ‘event’ I paid you for was to be held December 3-4th 2015 therefore if you do “usually refund of money… after the event” then, you are late!

I do not have “economic problems” but you have repeatedly failed to refund my money since your first promised to pay me on Fri, Nov 27, 2015 at 9:47 AM Mr. Carbguif so clearly you are indeed ‘keeping’ my money.

I will email you – and all of the speakers of your ‘Costa Rica Real Estate Technology Conference’ – the link of my new article on WeLoveCostaRica.com about your irresponsible behaviour by the end of the day.

=======================

Email from Rodney Carbguif to Scott Oliver:

Wed, Jan 6, 2016 at 10:46 AM

Hey Mr. send me your complete name, and your location I will try (don’t promise you) to send you from here a western union transference, apparently someone here lend me the $180

=======================

Email from Scott Oliver to Rodney Carbguif:

Fri, Jan 8, 2016 at 11:39 AM

Feel free to deposit the money into the same account from which you received it and please email me after making the deposit. (I then included my bank instructions)

=======================

Email from Scott Oliver to Rodney Carbguif:

Tue, Jan 19, 2016 at 6:17 PM

So 13 days later you have – yet again – failed to refund my money Rodney, this is very amusing.

=======================

Email from Rodney Carbguif to Scott Oliver:

Tue, Jan 19, 2016 at 6:25 PM

Well my friend, until yesterday I found a job, just they make me his payment and I will make your bank deposit, anyway the event was cancelled, without speakers is impossible to make an event, and without event there is not money.

=======================

Email from Rodney Carbguif to Scott Oliver:

Fri, Jan 22, 2016 at 1:56 PM

Finally today, Rodney Carbguif emailed me saying: “Ok, here’s your money refund, so if you published to the speakers and to all your network about this issue,I expect you do the same with the money refund that I already did.”

=======================

Warning: Rodney Carbguif And The Rescheduled Costa Rica Real Estate Technology Conference.

Yeah! I know you’re probably saying to yourself “what a persistent pain in the ass Scott Oliver is..,” and you’re right!

But all of this could have been avoided by one businessman who chose to act in a very unprofessional and irresponsible way and has repeatedly failed to refund my money for an event that he cancelled. I feel responsible for sharing good positive stories with our VIP Members but also to warn them about people that they should be cautious with…

Call me crazy but I’m one of those old fashioned guys who prefers to work with people who do what they say they’re going to do, ‘when’ you they say they’re going to do it and rarely have any problems but Mr. Rodney Carbguif is now on my list of people who I will never do any kind of business with, ever!

“Abrazo!”
