Quoted from John_I:
I agree in principle and will never associate with AP in any way. They basically took what little cash was remaining from AIW and RAZA
Quoted from hank527:
I get this, but I in no way can say AP has nothing to do with this. They stepped on the burning brown bag on the front porch. Guess what, their shoes are going to smell bad for a long time afterwards. There is no easy way to clean this stench off
I can't form any meaningful opinion, and I don't think anybody can off of mere speculation. Nobody here knows the exact details of the deal or arrangement AP had with JPOP, other than AP making some press releases prematurely about completing the games everybody got screwed on. They were probably just excited to share good news, to give those people hope, and already had Houdini in the works on their own dime.
AP in no way pocketed any of the money JPOP took from investors on RAZA and AIW. That money was exhausted and squandered away by JPOP long before AP's involvement...for the 5 years JPOP sat doodling selfies, designing nonsensical playfields, and paying himself a decent salary for coloring in coloring books all day. And a good portion probably went to JPOP's attorneys...they are not free.
And once AP saw JPOP's true colors for themselves, they ended the relationshit (courtesy Dane Cook), and quickly. The guy in Canada that invested and tried to crawl into bed with JPOP to deliver the MG's, RAZA's and AIW's quickly realized he was in over his head or what he was in for, and jumped out faster than the Flash. Several people have said above that JPOP shipped the MG's out, and it had absolutely nothing to do with AP.
The way I look at it, if AP was involved at all even behind the curtain, hundreds of people were screwed over by JPOP and at least now AP made that number 19 less (even though MG isn't complete, people that invested got something). And for all I know, they weren't even involved at all. They tried to take it on like other investors have, but quickly jumped out just as the others had. Given that, and the fact that they booted JPOP, I don't know how they would owe RAZA and AIW investors anything for their brief attempt to have an affiliation with JPOP. They didn't scam anybody out of money...HE DID. I can't blame them for hoping they could maybe make it right, although it didn't work out.
