Dear Suzanne (Retro Computers LTD)

Further to Simon’s meeting this morning, in order to continue with the button assembly, we need from you payment of the two outstanding invoices that I have sent to you for the completed tooling, and as stated in previous emails, this would allow us to then buy the TPE material to continue with the production of the buttons. As a small business, if these remain unpaid we can unfortunately no longer continue with investing more of our current funds to supply the parts on order.

I can’t stress enough the importance of these payments as every week that passes is detrimental to your release date.

Ive attached the invoices for your reference

Kind regards

Matthew Dominy

Confirmation of the shilling that went on from certain individuals during this absolute scandal. What a disgrace!

Well it seems justice has prevailed for once and no surprises there to be honest what a ridiculous bit of behaviour !

Indiegogo Campaign

"Our Indiegogo campaign is to raise funds to manufacture the first 2,500 or more units of the Vega+ in the UK, and to prepare us for the second production run."
