They stole $1.7 million

The Game Theorists

2 år siden

In November 2018, Defy Media shut down without any notice. They laid off their workers without warning and have held ransom the money earned by the NOpost Creators who were in their network. I was one of those Creators. Defy was my former employer and the multichannel network that represented Game Theory, Film Theory, and GTLive - EVERYTHING. We trusted them to help us and for that we and 49 other Creators in their network collectively lost 1.7 MILLION DOLLARS. Money that was owed to us, EARNED by us, and taken by DEFY. Today, the fate of that money rests in the hands of a bank, Ally Bank, who will decide the people who get their money back and those who are out of luck. After trying other methods of solving the situation, nothing has worked, so at this point we have no choice but to make our fight public. Steph and I have personally been going out of pocket to try and get everyone's money back, but to improve your chances, we need your help.
This is my story of what happened. And this is what we all can do to help ensure no other Creator, large or small, has their money stolen from them ever again.

But the fact that your house ALMOST burned down means that it was a high point because it DIDN’T. Also we have a lot of things to keep us entertained; if you need to take a break you’re always welcome to.

I really get you. This happened to my mom, who had a horrible co owner for her company. He took advantage of us, and stole thousands of dollars, (I have 5 siblings by the way) Luckily, my mom was able to stop, sue him and kick him out of the company. Matt, I'm really sorry that this happened to you, and I hope your okay.

I did the math (going on google calculator) and if this money was spilt among all 48 creators, they would have all lost equally, $35,416. You can buy a tesla with that money.

For the people who are looking to (or built) build a type of that company, if you didn't ask to make sure you got 100% of your money, they could just ask you if you were okay with them doing that. If you weren't, they should be fine with that and everyone would be on good terms. Unless that company did some wrong, or unfair to you or to the people who joined their company. In case if that did happen, you could always leave to company on no notice at all. You could go find another one which would either one, make sure you get 100% of your money, or two, ask you if it was okay for them to take some of your money.

@The Slayer it's fine not to like a creator, maybe a bit controversial to leave hate comments, but fine even rude to send hate messages to them directly, but, whatever but to be happy if someone is stolen from, that's horrible.
