Well guys, after I got a tip off from a good friend of mine, I began searching up for some disney podcasts. I came across www.dizradio.com (http://www.dizradio.com) and realized that it is oddly reminiscent of another site I've seen before, so I began to listen and realized that the Host sounds familiar as well, but I just can't quite put my finger on it... I recommend any people in the haunted attraction industry to listen to it for about 3 minutes and tell me if you feel the same... Please note the release dates, I find them to be interesting!

He can't make things right and I assure you everything can be worked out. But he runs and hides and starts a kiddie show LOL. Sad all way around. It will never work. This will fail to because Jonathan just like Rotting Flesh Radio was all based on lies! Shane and it's he's done!

Why is there negativity towards him? This seems to be a great opportunity for him and he'll appeal to a MUCH broader audience doing Disney than haunts, this is good clean fun. (Although I don't think calling someone a D-Head is a good thing lol)

Did he rip people off? He owes people money? I'm sure people have a right to be angry, I'm just not familar with it...

ouch. I was unaware of all this too. I mean, you hear all the time about vendors supplying shit that breaks after 10 minutes of being plugged in, but if you pay to advertise on a site, thats a little hard to ***k up and screw people over on. That almost takes effort, considering delivering the product should have been, literally, push-button. as an avid disney fan myself, I hope the mouse-police catch him... though they've lost a little of their might since Eisner was ousted, if the mouse can legally bludgeon a woman with a mickey cake pan, then hopefully they'll be able to shut down someone that uses their product to extort money from advertisers... especially knowing that disney themselves has a reputation for advertising on fan sites... imagine if he tries this crap on the mouse himself! holy crap balls, he's done for.

Wow. Sad to hear yet another negative industry story, either way.

I'm sure he really did give to a charity. He has his own charity, costumes for kids. But honestly? I've never seen it do anything! I don't even know what it supports. More than likely his pockets...

They were several who also paid him for websites and he did not deliver. He ACTUALLY called me asking for a loan to pay one back because they were filing a police report! I told him I don't loan my best friends money much less anyone else. I think he lied and treated his staff really shitty too from what I understand! Shane and it's just he moved on to where no one knew him!

Yeah, if you thought the customers were being treated bad, The Casket Crew was the same way! I can say this from my own point of view! When I joined on the team, he had told us of an infamous box full of "RFR Swag." Well, that never came. He promised us so many things that he failed to own up to. That eventually into just promising us shows that never appeared. In the end, most of the crew didn't lose too much money, but more or less pride, not to mention our names since we were associated with the man.

We let it slide as the money was suppose to be going to charity (costumes for kids). But I can't say for sure where it actually went. And this was after we let him use our artwork for the coloring books. Wonder if those ever even got printed as he never did send us a copy. He just couldn't get our address right, three times in a row, and its a PO box. Gave up on that too, again it was for charity right? Anybody have a copy of those coloring books?

He just has bad luck with shipping I guess.

Here's four emails spanning four months. Never did get the package.

He must have just copied and pasted that email. That's the same BS he gave me. And Shane, you and I need to check the hotel when we are in St.Louis. Apparently the hotel lost both our packages. Because he told me he dropped it off after it got lost in the mail 3 times. Sorry. The guy is a lying douche. Just saying....

Oh yeah....I forgot about the "I sent it to you" merry go round. Heard that one for a while too! Ah...good times....good memories.

Damn! Sorry everyone I was unaware he seemed pretty genuine at his booth at Transworld and he seems legit on the podcast. What a shame.

But I don't think he's working for Disney isn't this his own independent thing?

Please do not tell me the costumes for kids was a scam cover! Oh well...I still have Santy Claus to believe in.

I believe anything this man was associated with was a scam... Costumes for kids? Yeah, maybe HIS KIDS!

Hi! This is KkrazyKkaren from Great Lakes FrightFest. I see there is some conversation about Costume for kids.

I feel I need to speak up regarding a program we are doing:

“Kostumes 4 Kids” is a program designed to collect new or gently used costumes, make-up, props and fun party décor for disabled and less fortunate children to give them the Halloween they deserve.

The Original “Costume for Kids” program was established in 2008 By J.J. from Rotting Flesh Radio “The Haunt, Halloween and Horror Podcast” serving Wisconsin’s inner city.

Being inspired by the “Costume for Kids” program, we have received permission to use the name and we have formed our own local branch known as “GLFF’s Kostumes 4 Kids”.

The costumes and supplies donated have benefited one of the elementary schools in Harper Woods, Michigan. The goal is to first meet the needs of one class room. As we continue to grow, we plan to reach out to more class rooms.

We are Not affiliated with the old “Costume for Kids” program. Last year through GLFF (Great Lakes FrightFest) we donated over 50 costumes. This year our goal is 150. We have verification of these donations.

This is a wonderful program we have going on. We hope to work with a women’s shelter next year.

Please, what ever grief you may have with him, I am asking you not to include us in this.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kk if you have any needs for your charity send me a PM and I will see what I can do. I am local to Detroit and love helping charities this year my main Christmas charity was breakfast with Santa with the Wixom fire department. I donated all the cost for this so that the funds the firefighter had raised could go to gifts for under privileged kids. I grew up poor, but loved and never got a Red Rider BB gun for a gift, so a hate it when kids go without. I donated to JJ too thought it was a good way to get kids into my favorite Holliday. Guess I was duped like many others. I'm not mad I'm just sad for the kids he should have been doing for. It was thier loss really. I wish this thread would go away it just makes me feel shity. So many haunts do charity work and the is just a person that took advantage of those people with big hearts.
