Beware of BoostHoppers.com and David Cross

So my ordeal started out in just this past summer but I feel it is right to post something about this guy so no one else gets scammed.

My 7man novice team called Bum Town Hustlaz Jr. were sponsored by BoostHoppers.com ran by David "The Hopperman" Cross. I made this first order for my team which was a Boosted Victory Halo and had the Digi camo SPO shells with it for $170. Upon arrival to me after a very long wait and having Mr.Cross giving me every exuse in the book my hopper finally arrived. Right out of the box the charger that plugs into the hopper was broken (The silver connector on the charger that plugs into the hopper was in two pieces) and the wire coming out of the boosted battery going into the board was frayed and split.

I called David and sent him god knows how many emails with no response. I am still stuck here today with my broken hopper.
Service like this is what makes paintball go down hill. If Mr.Cross reads this I want you to know I am disgusted by your lack of profesionalism as a business owner and an adult.

Signed,
Devan Kennedy

Ive seen him at a few regional events awhile back and I aske dhim about his hoppers. what I understand is it does take awhile to get his stuff done because if you order a full hopper he buys it, takes it apart, and overhauls it himself. but I believe he also has a job apart from boost. so it does take awhile to get products from boost. but thats no excuse for having a broken hopper

David Cross is no longer in the paintball/hopper business. I was in contact with him through the middle of the summer and the last time I talked to him was in Birmingham, AL (he was passing through) and on his way to take a new electrician (his trade) job in Louisiana.
Good Luck

I guess that explains why I'm stuck with this broken hopper then

he should take care of all his orders first before he quit. i sent back a bad b2 board that he sold me for exchange and he never sent a replacement. after numerous emails that went ignored i contacted by phone and he said it would go out the next day. that was 3 months ago.

I know this is an old thread but I am curious if anyone has been in contact with david recently? I am a retailer who placed a large order with him over 1.5 years ago. After negotiating with him for a week or so, we came to terms on what was going to be purchased and at what price. Well, he completely screwed up the order! To make a LONG story short, we are still short over 5 battery/charger combos ($55 retail each), a custom Halo and 12 quick charge jacks...has anyone talked to him? I sent him over 30 emails directly and through the website and have called him and left more than 50 messages. Now his number states that he's not taking calls anymore.

Any and all info would be greatly appreciated!

....I have also attempted contacting him, with no luck....And I tried the last good number I had for him and got the same messsage.....
Last I heard he was in louisiana, and his son still plays on occasion in the CFOA and PSP.....so you might be able to track him down that way....
good luck!
-Will
