Chile, the running joke of the weekend has been Inferno DR 2013, more appropriately titled “The Goup Of The Century.” There are still a lot of unanswered questions and speculation as to what happened. I’m glad to report that for the most part, the party did not stop in The Dominican Republic. Stranded and deserted patrons persevered and made the best of it.
Will Darvin Williams, owner and founder of Inferno DR has recently sent out a letter to all of his customers detailing 2 retribution options for them to choose from. Just when I thought the stunts and shows were over, phase two of the goup begins. Chile, when you find out what the two options are, you are going to gag and co-sign the fact that Inferno DR 2013 truly is “The Goup of the Century. Take deep breath, sit back, and catch these T’s

In a letter dated August 31, 2013 Williams provides all patron with the 2 options below:
1) Trip Cancellation Refund: As with previous years, we have set aside a portion of your payment to purchase travel insurance on your behalf. This plan covers 100% of Trip Cost for a number of reasons including Trip Cancellation. Reimbursement generally requires 4-6 weeks.
2) Trip Cancellation Credit: By selecting this option, you will receive a credit of 150% of Trip Cost good for the use of any future Inferno trip of your choosing. For example, if you paid $1,000 for Inferno Dominican Republic 2013, you will receive $1,500 to use toward any future Inferno Event in Canada, Puerto Rico, or Dominican Republic
Chile, so you mean to tell me that phase 3 of the goup is to pass the liability off to the insurance company? No Gawd Hunty! I will say this, at the point in which patrons receive a refund , be it from Williams or the insurance company, this whole ordeal can be put to rest. Despite the details surrounding the cancelation of the trip, the trip did get cancelled. From a high level perspective, option 1 is a viable solution. However, this option still begs the question “where is the money”? No tea no shade, but why must people file a claim with the insurance company and wait 4-6 weeks to receive a refund? Couldn’t Williams and World Wide Travel simply reverse the charges, or issue refund checks asap, or pay pal the kids their money, or hell even western union the refunds? I guess if they could, they would, but they can’t, so they wont. You know why? Because they don’t have it! This further supports the fact that this money has been spent/misappropriated.
Chile when I read option number 2, I had to stop, look around my room and make sure I wasn’t being punked. Chile Miss Williams, I don’t even know why you offered option 2 as a solution because that is not the answer! Bitch ain’t nobody going nowhere with you no more!! Not to mention, you don’t have in your possession 100% of folks money, you expect us to reasonably believe that at sometime in the near future you will have 150%. Girl bye! I don’t even know why you called my phone with that bullsh!t. The children refuse to be “Infernoed” again!
The gag is, regardless of which option patrons choose, Williams is still walking around with some large unreconciled amount of cold hard cash in his pocket. This adds a new meaning to “mama needs a new pair of shoes.” How about “daddy is getting ready to buy the shoe store”! Yes gawd Will! Can you teach me how to do this? Sike!
Oddly enough, there is a 3rd option that quite frankly is the best option. I’m surprised Williams didn’t put this one in the letter.
Option 3: Call your bank/credit card company and have them reverse the charges.
Your money will be in your account within 48 hours. I’m sure for most people this is the option they have chosen. Hell, rent is due folks need a speedy remedy. Although thievery may not have been Williams intentions, the banks will most likely consider this ordeal theft by conversion and reverse the charges under those guidelines.

Regardless of how and when William’s customers receive their 40 acres and a mule, Williams is on borrowed time. There will come a day when he will have to pay the piper, both figuratively and literally. The insurance company, the banks, or both will surely launch and investigation into Inferno DR 2013. At the conclusion of those investigations, surely Williams will have to fork over the dough to escape jail time. Looks like somebody’s mama better get to selling fish dinners…
Speaking on “borrowed time” made me think about the Nicole Wray song Borrowed Time. Get you some!
