      This was my first and my last time I supported someone via kickstarter, I am really disappointed. I wrote several mails to znaps, one to kickstarter, but did not get anything for sure. I think the last thing we could do, is to complain about this case, see links below (like in Mordanti's post). I lost around 120 $.

      @Rudolf - you pledged $300 bucks?!?!?? i pledged $14 - how many adapters did you need?!?!

      thats the reason so few signatures, most people who lost bought a QTY that is "disposable" income.

    5. Warren Coakley about 21 hours ago

      Let's face it,you can get all the signatures you want. It will do nothing or will you get your money back. As soon as you pledge you have entered a contract and understand the risks of crowdfunding. I for one lost over a hundred dollars to these scam artists but I've given up on CF now. There is zero protection for us the backers/investor if campaigns decide to run with the money. Just going to wait for it to come to market.

      Znaps.myshopify.com is down. I've checked my account for my order status every day since they sent me a BS email months ago saying they lost my order and I was getting a refund (LIE!!) and it was still working as of yesterday but i just checked and its down. Guess they decided no point in paying the monthly fee anymore. Douchebags!

      If there is a crowd-funding project about hiring someone to get the creators shown up, explains & refund, i am pretty sure there are many ppl willing to pay as a counter-act on this scammer-creator.

      reminder: NEVER DEPENDS ON KICKSTARTER. As long as they have got a portion of money from the projects, they are protecting the creators more than the backers. They just don't give a XXXX on whether it's a scammer or not.

      Here's what to do, if you're frustrated at being scammed, to get some measure of payback:

      1) Report ZNAPS to Kickstarter, if you haven't already done so, as others have suggested: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1041610927/znaps-the-9-magnetic-adapter-for-your-mobile-devic/report/new

      2) Report the scammers to those agencies that can DO something about future scams they run:

      How to report scam if you're from the USA:
      https://www.usa.gov/stop-scams-frauds#item-35157

      For non-USA citizens:
      https://www.econsumer.gov/en/Home/FileAComplaint/

      3) LEARN all you can about WHO these scammers are, and how they operate:
      http://dandesim.one/2017/03/15/nbition-kickstarter-scam-znaps/

      4) Sign the Refund Petition: https://www.change.org/p/kickstarter-refund-for-znaps

      5) WATCH for them to pop up in the future, under the same / similar names or companies.

      The last one is important: with over 70,000 backers ripped off by these scammers, that's PLENTY of eyeballs out there for the next 5-10 years to ensure these dirtbags are tracked into the ground, and can't crowdfund a paper bag without someone noticing.

      Report them. Learn about their operating habits. Watch for them.

      Enough of us do that, and they'll have to give up their activities and go back to regular crime, leaving the crowdfunding world a better place.

      Lastly, I'm not sure where a class-action suit can actually GO to sue Znaps, as they appear to have covered their trail rather well( smart criminals, after all )...

      Feel free to REPOST this comment once a week, so that people here on the Messages Forum can see there's more effective ways to get their voices heard than just posting frustrated messages here. Kickstarters are not a guarantee of delivery, but items funded through their should at least provide peace of mind through their policies, which are sadly lacking when it comes to intentional fraud, as ZNAPS seems to have ably pointed out.

      To all znap backer, for sure you all will not receive any product, just because znap is an empty company from Hong Kong. The news report as below, you can translate it into your language.

      3. Things You Definitely Shouldn’t Do

      This section is a list of things you probably already know you shouldn’t do — lie, break laws, abuse people, steal data, hack other people’s computers, and so on. Please behave yourself. Don’t do this stuff.
      Millions of people use Kickstarter. We expect all of them to behave responsibly and help keep this a nice place. Don’t do any of these things on the Site:

      Don’t break the law. Don’t take any action that infringes or violates other people’s rights, violates the law, or breaches any contract or legal duty you have toward anyone.
      Don’t lie to people. Don’t post information you know is false, misleading, or inaccurate. Don’t do anything deceptive or fraudulent.
      Don’t offer prohibited items. Don’t offer any rewards that are illegal, violate any of Kickstarter’s policies, rules, or guidelines, or violate any applicable law, statute, ordinance, or regulation.

      Definitely I won't ever again support a Kickstarter project. I've tried for a second time to get a refund or that they would at least go after the project creator, but once again the same lame answer... No support to the project backers...
      Quoting their email...

      Hi,

      Here at Kickstarter, we expect creators to fulfill rewards, offer refunds if they’re unable to complete their project, and communicate with backers at every step along the way. While Kickstarter is the platform for this agreement, we are not a part of it. We do not investigate a project creator’s ability to complete their project, nor do we facilitate refunds or the fulfillment of rewards. While in most cases you’ll find that rewards are delivered as promised, it’s also important to realize that some projects might not fulfill as planned.

      When you back a project on Kickstarter you enter into an agreement with the project creator, as described in our Terms of Use: https://www.kickstarter.com/terms-of-use

      These terms outline the responsibilities of backers and creators. This information can serve as a basis for legal recourse if a creator doesn’t fulfill their obligations under the agreement. We hope that backers will consider using this provision only in cases where they feel that a creator has not made a good faith effort to complete the project and fulfill.

      I hope that this helps to address your concerns, but please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any other questions.

      Best,
      Raúl"
