8813210 submission Submission + - CherryPal's $99 netbook scam 1 Submitted by psergiu on Wednesday January 20, 2010 @10:32AM psergiu 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.
