CUPPY’S: Dale & Natalie Nabors “have done nothing wrong”

On the Dale Nabors-Fraud thread in the Muscle Shoals forum, local parents keep the unhappy Cuppy’s Coffee franchisees, “depositers,” and creditors updated on the activities of the man they blame for their lost investments. 

A parent’s reporting of their attendance at their children’s kindergarten program prompted a rare message from what some forum members believe is Dale Nabors himself (referring to himself in the 3rd person).


Wednesday, December 16, 2009 commenter “Judgement” fired back:

Yes, they were at the Christmas program, you know why? Because they have done nothing wrong, and have nothing to hide. AND IF YOU’RE SO "CLOSE" TO THE SITUATION, then you would know:

a.) that the Nabors had a modestly comfortable life prior to Cuppy’s and like many (it would appear) lost a lot due to their involvement with Cuppy’s.

b.) that the ‘charges’ were/are really a ‘civil’ matter, and that the most probable outcome is that they will ultimately be handled as such. You’d also know that Natalie had little to nothing to do with the matter outside of having been a signatory on a contract and that she had little to no knowledge of the situation. Just as she had little to no involvement with the day-to-day operations of Cuppy’s.

c.) they have made every effort to be a good husband/wife to one another and good parents to their children. Natalie has always been very active in the school activities of the children, as has Dale to a lesser degree. They have also made every effort to protect the children, as much as possible, from all the stress and problems which have resulted from their involvement with Cuppy’s.

d.) as recently as just a few months back, Dale was still trying to find a way to salvage the Cuppy’s mess.

e.) few have fallen further or lost more than Dale and Natalie, as a result of the Cupppy’s fiasco. I know for a fact that Dale inherited/purchased the right to own the BIG MESS. He may have made mistakes which made the situation worse. However, his primary goal was to make a bad situation better. He is totally humiliated and embarrassed by his failure and the shame IT has brought to his family.

If you have a dog in the Cuppy’s fight and want to attack and judge Dale for his handling of the Cuppy’s situation, you certainly have that right. However, one should be ASHAMED of themselves for personally attacking his wife and/or children.

When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself. I hope that Dale knows that only men judge us by the success of our efforts. God looks at the efforts themselves. God Bless you and your family!

Dale, we’ve read enough of your crap to identify your writing. Nice try. It is obvious you are "Judgement".

a) A comfortable lifestyle? What’s your credit rating? Do you even have a credit card? Is your furniture owned or rented? Do you have health insurance or on medicaid? Who are you conning these days to pay your bills?

b) Yes, we are aware that Natalie is not the brightest bulb on the tree.

c) Will not comment other than to say perhaps you can be pen pals when you’re both in jail.

d) Dale, the only thing you’re doing is making an effort to keep you smoking ass out of jail. You don’t fool anyone.

e) You didn’t invest anything, therefore, you didn’t have anything to lose. And for the record, did you even have any Fransynergy customers? Or was it all a front for the coffee cup. Oh, poor Dale… Tried to rescue all those coffee investors as you stayed up all night counting all their money for you to spend…

All I can say is "HO! Ho! Ho! It’s off to JAIL you GO!"

Seen the movie The Firm? Fasten you seatbelt, Robert Dale Nabors!(or shall I say handcuffs?)

“Survivors” from Ames, IA wrote:

Dale – Please do us survivors a favor. Please release us in writing from our contracts with the company. You do still have our records and didn’t violate our confidentiality by leaving them all in Florida, right?

Or – Better yet – disolve your private venture by issuing each one of us survivors 1 share of stock in our own company and let us get on with doing something with the shards of the company.

Maybe the survivors can reform on what little cash we have left and salvage something better than all of the "goodwill" that you are robbing our current brand of.

    Cuppy’s franchisees are being targeted in some sort of scam. A man is contacting us stating he is from Cuppy’s headquarters and needs updated personal information. DO NOT GIVE HIM ANY INFO and hang up.

    all of cuppys records were left in FWB when dale moved to Alabama. I know because I walked through the entire facility. He left hundreds of brand new computers, furniture and even all the pictures of grand openings. The most disturbing was the accounting department. It was like they left at 5 pm for the day and never came back. there were bank account statements, all of the franchisee information, blank checks, it was all there. I told the landlord about what was left and the assured me they were going to keep those documents safe for future use. I would advise contacting the landlord.

    Dale left ALL the financial records in accounting in FWB, so obviously he didnt give a crap what happened to the company.

    Those records, 2 dozen boxes, were turned over to the agencies still investigating this case. All someone needs is a copy of the franchise offering or Internet access to google locations to get a phone number. I was not contacted as I don’t have a store to call.

    the investigation is in full swing-i’ve heard that Steve from financing and Theresa St Claire have given sworn statements to federal investigators and that they were told its not a matter of whether or not Morg and Dale are going to prison-its a matter of how long.

    I am not going to waste much of my life on this posting, but I do have some things to say in regards to Cuppy’s. For some people this place really did change people’s lives. Some people talked about how Morg was so bad, but now they should realize he was not bad at all. Of course he tried to make sales and business, not for personal gain, but to keep the “whole” company together. It was sad to see people kiss Dale and Natalie’s butt, and you know who you are, SAD!!!! Also, Dale would say things to you to make you think such great things, and he was full of crap. I was there long enough to read the ins and outs of people. I also want to say to anyone that lost anything in this company I am sorry, but everything happens for a reason, and hopefully something good will happen in your life soon!

    Cuppy’s changed people’s lives. The understatement of the year.

    “For some people this place really did change people’s lives. Some people talked about how Morg was so bad, but now they should realize he was not bad at all.”

    Unbelievable, you live up to your name.

    Robert “Morg” Morgan is a career con-artist. Most of the damage that was done to countless people’s lives was set in motion before Dale Nabors even got involved. Just because Morg spent some of the stolen money on free daycare for your illegitimate offspring doesn’t mean he wasn’t the head scammer in the illegal Cuppy’s scam.

    Read this and tell me he’s “not so bad”:
