      Totally agreed with the backers here, kickstarter shifted the blame away by saying they are just the middle man. How can we ever back anymore project given the obvious uncertainty involved and the lack of protection from kickstarter?

      Kickstarter is failing to monitor non-delivering projects.
      This reward was supposed to ship 11 months ago.
      No response to chasers on project page.
      This is the third project which failed to deliver a tangible product.
      * Mini Ellipse from Gren iMedia
      * ZNAPS from Znaps
      * Remix IO+ from Jide

      I feel that it's pointless to back projects on this platform.

      Website (https://www.znaps.net/) is now currently unavailable.
      MyShopify (https://znaps.myshopify.com/) still exists - but it's 100% a SCAM.
      They have taken our money and run!
      Have spoken to KickStarter on many occasions (even tried to contact CEOs) and they outright refuse to help.
      Unfortunately for everyone asking - you'll never get your money back and you'll never see your Znaps. It was money down the drain.

      Harsh lesson learnt on this terrible scam, and hugely disappointed with Kickstarter's reaction, or rather lack of.
      I backed (a lot more cautiously!) a similar project more recently on Indiegogo, for Volta, and can happily say that I'm now using what I expected to get from Znaps, and can heartily recommend them.

      3. Gloria Lau (Liu Zhifang / 劉志芳 ) - Nelson's wife (Znaps project apparently under her name?)

      According to reddit postings, they tried to pull the same scam on indiegogo: https://www.reddit.com/r/shittykickstarters/comments/5r1dcm/znaps_kickstarter_fraud_now_on_indiegogo/
      but indiegogo's Trust & Safety team apparently were much more vigilant than Kickstarter: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/znaps-connection-is-just-a-snap-away#/ (project suspended / under review?)
      The trio of Hongkongers appear to be operating from or based in Canada (if not still Hong Kong). If anyone in either of those two countries can track down their contact details, they should probably try to contact local authorities to report them for fraud, not to seek compensation (as if that were even remotely possible now, after all this time waiting!) but to stop them from scamming others online.

      The Founders paid cash refunds for artificial KS backings
      Hundreds of launch party attendees were asked to fund Arist on KS and were then handed cash refunds. This artificially raised the profile of the campaign. Learn more.

      Benson and Nelson Chiu deceived the people of Hong Kong by staging paid actors at demonstrations of Arist. They defrauded Hong Kong by not paying taxes. And they have stolen from taxpayers by taking a matching sum – $850,000 for what they raised on Kickstarter. Learn more.

      Benson and Nelson Chiu have made a career out of being professional snake oil salesmen. From exaggerating or lying about their professional past, plagiarizing other people’s applications, to running a Kickstarter consultancy business which focuses more on the optics of a campaign then teaching businessmen how to build a real product.

      (znaps, arist, toasteroid, Ausilitee,....) Nelson chiu is apparently responsible for over dozen scam on kickstarter/indiegogo.

    29. Missing avatar

      Tal on August 14

      Nbition Development Limited and the Chiu brothers can be connected back to at least four different Kickstarter projects: Arist, Znaps, Toasteroid, and Ausillite. None of these products have been delivered to the backers, and in the case of Znaps, are already being sold and distributed.

      http://dandesim.one/2017/03/15/nbition-kickstarter-scam-znaps/ link with all the information

      It's not znaps who should be sued, but kickstarter for letting this scammer repeatily scamming on 4 projects funded on kickstarted. Never delivering any products.

      Therefore entirely lies on their fault for letting those same guys scamming over and over people on kickstarter. Thats kickstarter that should be sued again and be on relation with the different project member funder Arist, Znaps, Toasteroid, and Ausillite.

    36. Bruce Davies on August 12

      Just out of interest, has anyone found a real and reliable alternative to what this sham offered? The best revenge on Znaps would be to make someone an absolute fortune by delivering a good solution via regulated retail channels. So, what's the best cable adapter solution that money CAN buy? (Not interested in solutions that include a cable - I'm just looking for adaptors).
