what Smart Canucks is worth

So I call bull shit. Why can't he pay what he's promised to the users who have made this so profitable for him?? Because he is a liar and by the looks of it, a cheat. Oh and FYI this is not his only web site he is also involved with:,,

Comments left regarding Smart Canucks promises made

June 30 Alex Radley

Hi everyone!

I thought I'd update you on the gifts/money owing status.

We got a few good advertisers over the past couple of months so I am happy to announce that I will finally be able to payout ALL pending gifts and money as of July 1st.

Amberlab will however be busy because she's expecting a new baby so I will take care of sending out the gifts. If however you already contacted Amberlab you do not need to contact me. Your name is on the queue and we did not forget about you!

So here's my plan:

I'll get paid around June 28th but will most likely be camping on Canada Day (although I want to see the Queen at Parliament Hill so not sure what I'll do yet). Either way I'll be free starting from July 5th and will start mailing out the gifts that week. My plan is to pay out everything in July to bring SmartCanucks' balance back to $0.

I apologize for the delays in sending out your gifts/money. I have been running SC with a negative budget for a while now and it's really frustrating. I'm glad I'll be finally hitting the $0 mark next month

[followed by huge long (incomplete) list of usernames owed]


same thread, July 22 Alex Radley

Update July 22, 2010:
Amberlab emailed me the updated list. I am preparing the envelopes as I type this. Will buy necessary items tonight and things will be mailed out within next few days.

[editors note - not one person has reported receiving anything from this]

Cashback - What to do if you need the money urgently
I've been very slowly paying out the cashback owing, as much as I can afford every month.

If you need your cashback urgently and can't wait for my slow pace please send an email to smartcanucks at gmail dot com
with the following:
- transactions owing
- total owing
- paypal

Anonymous's comments: ONE person, always very supportive of the site, claimed to be paid after emailing him that night. Many others have claimed to contact him many times including that night with no response.

Sally keeps claiming how hes paying people, but won't say who, and not one other person has said they have received payment? Apparently someone is on a previously unknown "priority list" according to Sally, yet she has not been paid.

Alex "Boo" Radley has had no comment since Aug 4, though clearly logs on every day.

We are still wondering what happened between having the money to pay EVERYONE owed Jun 30 - July 22 when he was preparing envelopes as he typed and going THAT NIGHT to buy gift cards to Aug 4 when he had the money to (maybe?) pay one person?

Where did the money go, that he's known he owed people for 1 year+ and promised to take care of many times? He went on a trip to Ottawa and camping and then there is no more money to pay what he owes hmmmm?


My thoughts on this:
And this is how it continues to go. Do they try and find out the sponsors/advertisers and get their attention to the ongoing problems? I don't know for sure. The downside of this may be the end of Smart Canucks, which I would hate to see since otherwise it is a fantastic site. My biggest beef is that Alex will not be honest and just tell the truth, if he has no money TELL THEM. People respond a lot better to the truth then to lies.

The reason the bulldog is still there and is allowed to unleash however she wants, on whoever she wants, she got him out of a previous legal problem. So it seems these broken promises may not be unfamiliar waters he seems to find himself in? Just sayin'

It could also be that people have been paid and gotten gifts and prizes owed, but have not shared this with anyone else?

Smart Canucks down the Rabbit hole still

While I did finally get paid, because I started this blog, it seems most members have not been paid. So we need to start tracking again as members are again getting upset and not allowed to voice their opinions over there in fear of getting banned. Comments have been left, emails received letting me know that again promises were made by Boo Radley, the admin, and not being kept. While I have not seen any of these threads or posts, please feel free to leave me a link and I will take a look and document it here for you. No names,or ID's need to be revealed, you leave a comment as Anonymous

Just a recap of the original admin post and people still have not been paid.

Hi everyone,

Here is the current status of the Cashback and what you need to do to get paid for all your transactions and an explanation of the reason behind the delays.

All transactions have been (and still are) fully tracked by the system. We however completely rebuilt our Cashback system and while doing so, a conflict between the old and new systems resulted in a problem that made it very hard to display the transactions that occurred in the past few months consistently. We fixed all these issues and tracking will be automated and reliable with transactions showing up in less than 24 hours in the Cashback panel starting on November 1st, 2009.

However, for transactions before November 1st, 2009, I have decided that the best way to take care of these will be on a personal basis (and manually) through email. I will ensure that you get paid for every transaction you made through the Cashback system. To express my apology for this inconvenience, instead of paying you a percentage Cashback, I will pay all the commission a transaction has generated.

All I need from you please is to email me with your SmartCanucks ID (if you know it) and a rough list of the transactions you placed and I will retrieve the details and reply back to you with a list. Once you confirm that I have listed all the transactions you made and acknowledge the total I owe you, I will then proceed to send out the payment immediately to the address/paypal you specify.

I will be replying back to your emails in less than 24 hours. Once again I deeply apologize for this inconvenience and I guarantee you that starting on November 1st, 2009 you will be getting the highest quality of service and reliability from the New CashBack System.

I will then proceed to send out the payment immediately to the address/paypal you specify.

- A Radley, Nov 2009
