Hello, this is to inform everyone that Cal Spas contacted me(president)and started screaming and cussing about "You have one hour to take that website down. I have a million dollars on retainer with an attorney and will sue you for defamation, slander, unfair business practices and soforth! I did not know what the hel he was talking about. I own as a domain name collector and am also in the Spa business. Casey saw that I am not the owner of and had nothing to do with the website that a prior employee built stating the tactics of the Cal spa company. I was dumbfounded to think this guy is threatening me over a website I do not own. Since that day, Casey offered to let me sell a new line of Cal Spas on my website in return for the domain name. I thought about this and asked to put it in writing and I would be obliged to do so. At that time, I did many old spa removals for cal spa and did not want to mess up my reputation with this company. I only own because I also build websites and someone wanted me to build this name but did not pay. I ended up with the name. Now, I have been contacted by his attorney threatening me with litigation for Disparaging statements about cal spas and to turn over the domain name. I have never built any website, but since his threats have forwarded the name to Cal spas complaint page. I see many sites that let the consumer vent over their dealings with Cal Spa. I have the right to own and even build a website that allows others to vent. This is america and I have freedom of speech. I did not even build anything negative nor plan to. I only forwarded the name. I must say that I do repair spas also and 7 out of 10 spa repairs are cal spa! They want me quite before I speak! Beware of dealings with any company that wants to shut you up before you even speak. Stay tuned for more information on this case. I will not surrender the name and will fight it till the end. I have nothing to lose and will fight for my right as an american to retain the name. By the way, the owner of the name Cal spa was pissed off about has been turned over to Cal Spas. More than likely through cussing and screaming by Casey Loyd. Robert lawndale, California

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Casey LLoyd is a scum bag.

AUTHOR: James - (U.S.A.)

Cal Spas has been on the warpath about all the people who hate his crap and how this crap has worked to destroy the spa industry.  His crap spas and unethical disgusting lies has caused the  spa industry to go into the toilet.  People are sick of his crap sitting in their back yards not functional and telling every one how bad spas are.  His crap spas are ruining the spa industry in the US and giving all the good spas a bad name. 

His stores in our area are finally closed and good riddens.  Every effort needs to be made to get rid of Cal Spas from this world, and forever.  If you buy a Cal Spa you  are an idiot.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds


AUTHOR: Kelly - (U.S.A.)

I believe it when you say that you say that this domain was requested by a former Cal Spas employee. I would however be willing to bet that if Casey did sue you over this that former employee would come out to defend you as would probably many former employees. Keep us updated as it will be very interesting to see how this progresses.
