A public and limited time offer for Mr Lee Fogarty

Judging by the sudden deletion of webpages relating to Tanya Adele Cook along with her Youtube channel, we assume you are well aware of the latest leak. We are confident that you did not supply this particular leak and would like to give you an opportunity to respond to the following offer:

1. You should publicly apologise to the community for your part in the Vega+ debacle. You owe apologies to Paul Andrews, Chris Smith, Nick Cooper and Darren Melbourne. An apology is surely overdue to members of the press that you have bad-mouthed and lied about, including Gareth Corfield, Leo Kellion and Holly Brockwell. Apologies are surely deserved to various people on social media, such as Nick, George, Ian, Major Rob, Kieran, Mark, Mike, Gary, Richard and Graham. You repeatedly ignored warnings to distance yourself from RCL from many others on Indiegogo and facebook - far too many to name, but people like Peeto, Jamie, Daniel, Nigel and Darren. And also the almost 5000 backers that have not received the product they ordered. Apologies if anybody has been missed, but there are too many names to remember.

2. In one of the last George Cropper videoes, George offered to do an interview with you. We think this is a fantastic idea and would like you to contact George and work out a convenient time for him to do an all-questions-asked, face-to-face video chat with you that he can publish on his channel. We are sure he will come up with interesting questions for you.

If you wish to clean the slate with the community and help repair it, we would be willing to permanently take down the Tanya page and even re-direct it to a site of your choosing.

Please be aware that unlike RCL, our deadlines are NOT guidelines. We will let you have a think about it for one week (until midnight on Friday 14th of September) to decide if you'd like to make amends with the community. Post your decision on social media and we will uphold our end. You have our word. Tick tock.

Update: Lee Fogarty failed to respond in time to our request for him to apologise to the community for his part in the Vega+ scam. Our offer to clean the slate has been revoked.
