Maybe CAs were smart enough to recognize a bad business and proceeded to avoid it
I just mentioned CH Canada last week.
2 days after my post, they went bankrupt.
Here's a list of the dead sites, courtesy of the bankruptcy trustee:
As a consequence of the bankruptcy, DB Media will not be fulfilling
any customer orders through its DVD clubs as of December 9, 2010 as the
Canadian operations have ceased. The following lists the DVD Clubs
affected by the bankruptcy:
DVD CLUB: http://www.columbiahouse.ca/
DVD CLUB: http://www.columbiahousecanada.com
French CHCanada: http://www.cineetcie.ca/
Although the company is dead, and no more shipments will be going out, if you owe money, they'd like you to pay up:
A&M Canada, serving as Trustee, is now in the process of collecting
amounts owed to the book and DVD clubs. If you have an outstanding
amount owing to DB Media, we would appreciate immediate payment of your
account in full.
What a very polite sentiment. Hopefully they don't encounter a scenario where they try to get someone to pay for items that won't end up being shipped out.
