A few weeks ago there was a poster on both the Genii Forum and the Magic Cafe who went to great lengths to villify Viktor Voikto and disparage his products. It appears that his vendetta has expanded to sending unsolicited emails. Witness the one that I received earlier today from "Emily Stone":

Dear Magicians colleagues,
Danger Magic Shop Stop buying anything from this shop now www.magic-voitko.com
Please you have to pass this email/information to all magic community, because everybody have the right to know!
We are a group against Mr. Victor Voitko we feel deceived with the horrible quality of his tricks he sells online, packages we never receive they never arrived to us, we spend a lot of our money and time for noting.
We try to write this information on some forums to let every one now what's going on, but the forums sponsors thy not accept this information to be displayed on there forums.
Some reasons of this email:
I have order online two sets of the flying rings witch the first version it has a 3 aluminium rings with an horrible quality built, hand spray painted and the shape it was more like an egg than circle has it suppose to be.
Second order I have done online I order the second version of the ''THE DELUXE FLYING LINKING RING SET'' and surprise I was very disappointed again the set add an horrible chromed and one week after I use them the chromed was gone!!! And they cost me $630!(The last version) Plus shipping and customs!
The dancing Glowing rose - Also hand spray painted with very bad quality.
I have send lots of e-mails to www.magic-voitko.com and to Mr.Victor Voitko complaining but no reply.
Take this advice and be very careful with this magic shop online www.magic-voitko.com
Like me lot 's of magicians in the same situation they pay for there orders online but the packages never arrived and they not received the money back.
It's hard to believe but on is website the snowstorm fan costs 750.00 euros and this is only a simple fan with an elastic to pull !!!
Some magicians they don't have the courage to write about this and of course this is reality.
Some people have contract him for a few festivals And he never show up for is commitments, he left every one down and they cancel all the shows, one more time people have spend lot's of time and money in publicity
for nothing, thanks to Mr Victor Voitko.
We now for a fact from many Germany Variety colleagues and other countries that Mr Victor Voitko it was performing drunk during many of his shows and one night it was so drunk that the organisation have to close the curtains on hem.
For hem what is important it's the vodka, but for all of us Magicians it's our name on the line.
