Tuesday 3rd April, 2018

An article appears on That Retro Video Gamer called 27 days left. The article questions why there have been no updates or photos of the 10,000 devices that have supposedly been manufactured, and the subsequent account suspension and deletion of all posts by the author on the RCL facebook page

RCL managing director Suzanne Martin is active on Twitter, but unfortunately for backers Suzanne returns to report tweets rather than to update backers on the progress of the Vega+ and refund requests.

Former RCL supporter Preston Thomas releases a 33 minute video called The Sound Off - The Spud Speaks on his channel The Tater Tuber. The video talks about Preston's mistake of supporting the scammers Retro Computer Ltd, being tagged with the #zxvega hashtag on Twitter, his final apology for assisting in the Vega+ scandal and his reason for refusing to quit the scene.

A follow up article appears on That Retro Video Gamer called ZXVegawatch - the blinded mice that RCL forgot. The article discusses the 3 main associates that shilled for RCL during the Vega+ scam, namely Lee Fogarty (Mr F in the article), Jan Saggiori (Mr S) and Preston Thomas (Mr T). 

Preston Thomas closes his YouTube channel one day after re-opening it. A backup of The Sound Off - The Spud Speaks video is available.

RCL file micro company accounts more than 3 months late for the year ended 30th March 2017. The figures on the micro accounts do not match the leaked bank statements, and somehow RCL claim to have increased assets by almost £350,000 in the previous year. Members of the Vega+ public discussion facebook group suggest that creative accounting has taken place by capitalizing the intellectual property, adding a huge "goodwill" figure or adding an imaginary amount owed by Cornerstone Media.

RCL directors David Levy and Janko Mrsic-Flogel resign as directors of Ping Pong Studios Limited
