Repost ceo @tavicastro :Me , my family , and our employees at Body Engineers have been living in a nightmare the last 6 months under extortion attempts by Peter Versluis . He has had people break into our home and our HQ , he has rejected any peaceful resolution we have offered, including resolutions where he earns large amounts of money in exchange for our peace. We have tried to handle him with patience , compassion , and understanding , but unfortunately some people value money and ego over everything. We are afraid for our safety and we just want our company back , our peace of mind, our freedom to create , love , and to move forward. What this person has done to us , I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. We ask for your love , support , and understanding through this situation ?? ❤️ thank you to all that know the truth now….and to those who will know the truth very soon. #BEFREE – To all our customers we will continue to process the returns and refunds . There will be no exchanges and only refunds from now until the court case has settled and we can go back online. Thank you for your understanding .
