Scam alert! Myrtle Beach Management dismisses the danger of Hurricane Florence, demanding I travel there!

The hurricane named Florence hits Myrtle Beach in a day or two, but  the hurricane is already there, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Its name? Myrtle Beach Management. They are located 821 Second Avenue, North Surfside Beach, SC 29575. Their phone: (800) 968-9279. Their email:

I paid $962.66 for a six-stay at Myrtle Beach Resort A503, whose address is  5905 South Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach, SC 29575. When Florence made the scene, Henry McMaster, the Governor of South Carolina, issued a mandatory evacuation for people along the coastline in preparation for Hurricane Florence. Millions of people have been evacuated. Roads have been turned into one ways—away from Myrtle Beach.

“This is not the time to take a chance,”  McMastersaid. “We do not want to gamble with a single South Carolina life. I have ordered a full coastal evacuation effective noon tomorrow, Tuesday, September 11.”

Spirit Airlines gave me a full refund of tickets and baggage fees. A man, reportedly named “Pat” who reportedly works at Myrtle Beach Management, refuses to refund my money. He wanted me to travel to honor the reservation despite the what CNN has called “a monster”!

As my lawyer pointed out in an email to Myrtle Beach Management: Your email of today (September 11) states: ” We are under no obligation to modify your reservation.” Pursuant to this, you are stating that you would have never refunded his costs, even though the Governor of South Carolina put South Carolina under a State of Emergency—making travel illegal. In essence, you were asking him to risk his life.

Unless I am refunded the full amount, my attorney will file a case against “Pat” and Myrtle Beach Management at Horry County Magistrates Court Surfside Magistrate Office/9630 Scipio Lane/ Myrtle Beach, SC 29588-7575.

See you in court!


Never use Shutterfly. They are a scam. A true story.

Christmas 2017.

A pathological liar, racist, misogynist, homophobe and xenophobe “heads” the country.

Shutterfly heads the scam process.

Let me explain.
On November 25, I ordered a personalized photo pillow as a gift.
It never arrived.
I complained to Shutterfly, spoke to an outsourced (!)  woman in some foreign country who could barely speak English. She had another sent.
It never arrived.
A third one was sent. It never arrived.
They never arrived to the legitimate Boston PO Box to which they were addressed; they were delivered to Tempe, Arizona.

Here is the tracking information for one pillow:


    DEC 14

    DEC 12


    Tempe, AZ
    DEC 12

I learned that UPS is not legally allowed to deliver to the USPS (a post office), yet Shutterfly refuses to acknowledge they did something wrong.

The Tempe, AZ scam room.
As a noted journalist since 1979, I contacted Nicole Steir, who is listed as the “media representative.” Emails were sent to  and Her photo is below, stolen from Linked IN. (That site descibes her as “Director, Public Relations & Corporate Communications/Shutterfly Inc./ – Present (3 years)”
She refused to return my calls and refused to answer my emails. Instead, she had someone named Levy Hamilton call me from South Carolina. He refused to leave a message on my machine.

Even a cursory web search  will lead you to the ONE STAR reviews Shutterfly has received. [Read them here:]

As a way to doing damage control, CEO Christopher North has been heading south . . . he has Shutterfly “Donating” and “giving away” $10,000 checks to various guests on Ellen DeGeneres’ show. Anything to make Shutterfly look good.


Their website claims their mission is “Make the world a better place by helping people share life’s joy.”

Bullshit! That’s why we refer to them as Shitterfly, away.
