When tragedy strikes
Wow, can you imagine getting ready to marry the love of your life, and then they are tragically killed in a car accident? Well this happened for Justin Montney out of Colorado Springs.
Justin Montney and Alexis-Athena Wyatt had planned to get married in Colorado Springs in May. These plans came to an end once tragedy happened in early February when Wyatt, 22, died in a car crash, forcing Montney to cancel the arrangements.
Justin contacted Copper Stallion Media to explain his situation and to get his $1,800 deposit back for the video services. The company denied the refund and stated that the contract is non-refundable.
After he was denied his refund, Justin had his family and friends post about it on Facebook. The company responded and said they are going to sue Justin. It is one thing to have a policy, but it is another thing to be completely disrespectful and inconsiderate. What the company did next was completely unspeakable.
The Company taunted Justin on social media
The company posted a picture of the couple on what would have been their wedding day and left a nasty message.
“Today would have been the day where we would have filmed Justin and Alexis’ wedding in Colorado Springs. After what Justin pulled with the media stunt to try and shake us down for a refund, we hope you sob and cry all day for what would have been you wedding day. Sorry, not sorry”
The company vs Justin
The company said it signed a “legally binding contract” with Montney and his fiancée on Nov. 29, 2019.
Wyatt was killed on Feb. 4, and the company said Montney reached out by email regarding a refund on Feb. 17.
“We replied and expressed our sympathy and explained to him that all of our wedding contracts are non-refundable,” the company states. “He kept emailing us trying to get a refund and we kept reiterating that the contract is non-refundable. We eventually stopped responding since the issue was moot.”
Copper Stallion Media claimed Justin emailed them again in May asking for a refund. “In the news story he admits that the contract was non-refundable but says we should give the money back due to the circumstance. Life is a b****, Justin,” the company stated on their website.
“I read your contract and I understand its nonrefundable, but have you guys ever heard of decency at all?” Justin asks in one voicemail. “You guys are disgusting, I hope your company burns to the ground. You go to hell, you f***ing disgusting people.”
Since this story has gone viral the company has deleted their Facebook account. Another company with a very similar name has since then been catching all of the heat.
I reached out to the company for a statement, currently no response.
