Sorry for the delay on emails as I've been sick with a cold for about a week now. I also have not been building so that I don't contaminate the product. I will be responding to emails soon and building just as soon as I'm over it. Thanks
We are now to a point where almost everyone that wanted a refund has been refunded. Those of you that have waited we sincerely appreciate it and have some options for you.
Our game plan to reopen is as follows-
We are reopening with 6 items as these items are already built and ready to ship. We will only be shipping to those that have already purchased first. These items are the Poltercom Pico, The Parascope, The Parascope 360, The Electrascope, Afterlite and The REVP. Since these items are readily available for us to ship these will be the items we will be moving forward with. We dont have a date on any other items for when or if they will be available.
If you have an order that has not been shipped to you yet here is how we will move forward.
Email us ((Paranologies@yahoo.com) with the subject line DISCOUNT CODE)) Make sure you include an order number so we can email you a discount code with the amount you paid. Once you receive the discount code you can use this for any of the items above in the exact amount you paid. Example- If you ordered something that was about $299.99 and its not on the list of 5 items above, then we will send you a discount code for that amount you paid and you can go to our website (www.Paranologies.com) put items in your cart that is equal to the amount you paid, and during checkout enter the discount code (located under "Show order summary") and your current address and it will send us the order so we can ship it out ASAP. You wont have to enter any Payment information just the items in the cart, discount code and shipping address. Once we see the order we will be sending out tracking numbers associated with the new order. If you have ordered one of the 6 items above and it has not shipped, please follow the same above instructions so we can have your order and shipping address updated. I know this may be an inconvenience for some but we have to have this information to get your outstanding orders out to make sure we can update our list on our end.
I want to thank you all for working with me as I move forward. I have many more original products to bring to you in the future.
Here is how we ended up here for those that are interested-
Paranologies was started by me (Jeromy Jones) over 16 years ago to bring my passion of creating functioning electronic art pieces to the Public.
For those of you that are interested and have supported me over the years I am truly grateful to you. You allowed me to design and build my passion for a long time running, and you made it possible for me to enjoy my career of being an Engineer without the boring aspects of Engineering. It has come to a point now though where I cannot keep up with the demand of my Products. I have always stood by not having my products manufactured in China or by anyone else for that matter. I enjoy knowing that every single item that leaves our company has been completed, by hand, by me. This really means something to me knowing that I may create something that will leave a mark throughout history.
I always strive to bring an original idea to the Paranormal community. I can say with confidence that every single product I have manufactured is an original product from me that was never copied from another hard working individual. If you see an item that performs or looks like a Paranologies product then you know they are taking the years of hard work from what I did and making an inferior product that Ive already created. On top of that making money off of it. I see a whole lot of copying going on in this field and while I want to comment on every post I see, I try to stay out of the drama that some people love so much. So many of you have copied my products and I have not forgotten that, It will come back to you. So many of you have copied others products to make money off the original creator and you should be ashamed of that. That person put in the time, money and effort it takes to create an original product, NOT you. Come up with something else so we can all move forward to the truth that we seek. I see the Rempod being ripped off so many ways its not even funny. The SLS Cam, same thing. Those things have already been made by someone that put forth the effort in them, stop ripping them off. My own designs are the same way, except that when I see them bring ripped off I put a stop to it pretty quickly. This is mainly because my followers tell me pretty quickly or they show their loyalty to me by commenting when they dont have to, but just know I appreciate you. People know a Paranologies Product and thats what they want. Same with the others mentioned above. Sure some will buy the cheap ripoff's but the majority I hope understand that by purchasing a rippoff product you are not respecting the Blood, Sweat... you get the idea, that the original creator and artist has done for you. Please only buy from creators and designers that have originated something or has permission to reproduce an item. You don't understand the time it takes away from one's family trying to battle those thief's that simply reverse engineer someone elses product and pretends like its theirs.
Now with all that being said, what lies ahead for me, for Paranologies. I know a LOT of you have put your money into my products and have not received them yet. I am NOT stealing from you, I am NOT stealing from you. I have to say it twice because thats the main comment I hear via email or online almost every day now. I have every intention to get the product to you. If you have read my past Blog posts you see what has put me here in the first place, which is simply I can't keep up with the orders coming in. I hear a lot of your emails and posts, even as negative as some of you are. And I understand why you come so negative at me, to get my attention because I dont get to your emails as fast as I would like to. A lot of you think I can just teach someone to do what I do. Its not that simple, without going into detail, my products are NOT easy to put together or produce. I have done the best I can to be transparent with what is going on with orders and where I am at with them. I have even put popups on the website before you can order a product that states what my company is all about.. custom hand built items and why they take so long. The site never promises anyone a shipping time, its all been estimates because of the fact I have so many products and the time it takes to assemble them. Most of the time I dont have exact shipping dates because when you order an item, I then turn around and order parts so I at least have the parts for those, but that doesn't mean I have started to build it. There is usually a long wait for me to build the items because of how many orders I have. I could simply over charge to keep the orders down but I dont feel that is right either. There is little profit in what I do but I enjoy it. And now it is a lot harder to get parts at the price I was getting them at so that is challenging as well.
