      please send me a msg through my website www.akgraphx.com it is much easier for me to respond. My kickstarter inbox is harder to keep up with due to the traffic

      Some items are not available but I can replace with a deck of cards, the mug and special edition box set are no longer available but the decks, posters and t shirts still are. I have a new shipping company that are local in my area who are assisting me in fulfilling orders so some of you will be getting notified via email very soon

      Hello everyone, sorry for not responding to some of your messages, I have been very busy with multiple projects and what not. I am still sorting out some of the backers that didnt receive your orders and will fulfill as promised.

      well, i posted the following message on all the web sites that i could link to from asshat's site:
      Hello, I live in colorado and have never been to your place. I just wanted to let you know that the "person" who designed your website is a thief! He did a kickstarter for a deck of cards. 838 people pledged money to his project and over 300 of them (myself included) were ripped off and sent nothing. I dont expect you to do anything about that. I just wanted you to know that he is a thief and a fraud. I also dont expect anything back from you about this. Again, just wanted you to know he proudly lists his theft along side your website on HIS site. Thank you for your time and attention
      Would be nice to know if he gets any feedback from his customers. of course, im sure that he dont give a shit if they complain to him either. All of our complaints to his have not done crap! And of course, kickstarter has not/will not do anything...sigh fracking asshats. nuff said

      Sorry if you didn't get your deck...the creator seems to have only printed a small percentage of the decks and then pocketed the rest of the money. Only a few lucky ones ever received a deck.

      @Giddyup Holy cow! I had eye balled that project for a while but my instincts told me no. Glad I followed them. Kickstarter has been scheckles from the start. As long as they get their cut they really don't care what happens with the projects. That's just a sad reality. I mean I still use this site a ton but its because its all there is, I would love to see a site with some serious oversight.

      You just have to be very aware of who you are backing. Look into their background, look at who they back, and if they have created any other projects.

      I've backed about 65 projects now and really only had problems with maybe 4 and 2 of those being "scams." My diligence allowed me to not get burned as bad but you have to be aware.

      http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/farocards/the-hedge-bicycle-playing-card-deck
      http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/redshoeaffair/felted-soap-a-washcloh-and-soap-in-one

      Those are the only real problem ones I've had. The others were just mix ups with shipping that got fixed by the creator.

    16. Fell_farmington.small

      Creator Owen Middleton on October 18, 2013

      I've given up, this whole thing, and anything else produced by this guy should be BANNED from from Kickstarter. Seriously, if they don't decide to deal with him when he has blatantly ignored the fact that people have messaged him, and still goes on not caring, not bothering to say "Oh, I messed up, sorry"(even though that would still do nothing to change my mind about his stealing of some $16,428 since he supposedly did send out some...). Even my facebook message, which he viewed the SAME day went ignored. If anyone i sable to take him to court, please, let me know. I say fraud is a charge that should be able to get him taken care of. Even if it doesn't get me my money back, at least he won't get away with it after that.

      Creator Giddyup on October 16, 2013

      There is a discussion of a playing card project going on at http://www.reddit.com/r/kickstarter/comments/1oboud/warning_beware_of_fraudulent_kickstarter_projects/ if anyone is interested. While that thread started out as a complaint against a specific card project (The Founder's Playing Cards), it has morphed into a general discussion of a) outright fraud on Kickstarter, b) Kickstarter's role in all this, and c) projects like this one where the creator is woefully unprepared for the logistics of dealing with their project.

      Hopefully, creating a discussion outside of Kickstarter that consolodates complaints will be helpful in coming up with long-term solutions. If you decide to add to the discussion there, please be constructive with your comments. It probably won't help to get your pledge from this project, but it may help push Kickstarter into making changes for the benefit of everyone. That Kickstarter needs to be pushed into doing so is one of the topics of discussion.

      Well, he looked at the message, and didn't bother to respond to it. I actually love how Facebook tells you when, date and time wise, someone actually looked at your message. Friday, 11:38pm(Mountain Time).

      Creator Owen Middleton on October 12, 2013

      Lets see what he has to say to the message I just sent him on Facebook. Demanded a refund, AND told him there are hundreds of unsatisfied people with his blatant ignoring of everyone here.

      stan, i think that you are a very very lucky man! those of us who have been asking, begging, commanding, demanding our items, have (i'm fairly certain) told him in a plethora of ways. However I guess that we dont count to him. Hope you like the deck. please be sure to send him a email telling him to do the right thing and send us others our stuff. He doesn't read /respond to ours. Maybe he will to yours.

      well, like i sad a little bit ago, I got a form email from kickstarter about this situation and sent something back....nothing back AND i dont expect anything. like i said KS got their money and they dont give a rats butt about the whole situation. like i said back to KS in my email, their reminding him will do nothing. he has been reminded time and time and time again. if he hasn't done the right thing by now, he will NOT unless FORCED to do so! Patric, I would say that if you have links for the other "projects" he is working on, post them here. That way we can all go to those sites and comment about his "behavior"!

    31. Fell_farmington.small

      Creator Owen Middleton on July 15, 2013

      It falls more on the shoulders of the creator than those of Kickstarter. Mostly because it is in their terms of use where it states it is HIS responsibility to full fill his end of the bargain, and that they don't step in(at least that's what I understood from it, maybe someone else can clarify if it isn't like that...).

      Just for everyone who lost out on this project I've talked with my gf who is a paralegal and will be taking my case to her firm to have it looked at.
      When I hear more I'll be looking to take names if people would like to get involved. We all know he logs on here and the stories of him starting up other ventures means that he has no plans on dealing with the debacle that he created with this project.
      We have all been ripped off and someone must be held accountable and I'm on a mission to expose one of either the creator of this project or Kickstarter itself.

      Creator Owen Middleton on July 12, 2013

      Everyone should know he is definitely reading all this. Every day I log in and see if he has logged in that day, and he definitely has. He just needs to man up to what he has done by either delivering on his promise of rewards(which I'm sure some people don't want any more, they would rather a complete refund, myself included) or give us a refund.

      Saw on United Cardists that he is trying to create another deck for Kickstarter. Somehow backers need to be warned not to back him, you won't get whatever you pledge for. He should be banned.

      well, I contacted kickstarter and got back a standard company form POC (piece of crap) letter. saying that they would contact him and remind him of their policy. In other words, not a frelling thing will they do him. I mean they already got their cut...they dont give a damm. there you have it from kickstarter. really rethinking supporting kickstarter any more...they are really frelling up!

      Straight from the Terms of Use:

      Kickstarter does not offer refunds. A Project Creator is not required to grant a Backer’s request for a refund unless the Project Creator is unable or unwilling to fulfill the reward.
      Project Creators are required to fulfill all rewards of their successful fundraising campaigns or refund any Backer whose reward they do not or cannot fulfill.

    40. Fell_farmington.small

      Creator Owen Middleton on July 4, 2013

      Seriously, where are our rewards? I know you logged in today Anes! Either deliver on your promise of the reward, or refund us our money. It's a VERY simple thing to do to follow through with a PROMISE of rewards to people who back your project. A project, might I add, that many here thought would be a good thing to get behind. Seems you fooled all of us by taking our money and not delivering anything.

    41. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Patric Duke on July 3, 2013

      I think the best course of action for all who haven't received their rewards is to start collecting names and forward that to kickstarter and any other authorities that are needed. I'm sure if we got a fb page or some sort of email to send names to we could all get together and take proper action.
      Sending individual emails to kickstarter or Anes are useless until they see the full effect of everyone's displeasure. He knows he messed up and is blatantly hiding out from this project with no correspondence to his backers.
      If someone is willing to start something up I'm more then willing to put my name down for a course of action.

If i would be breaking the rules in that, why is what Anes Kashat did any different?? no answer on that im sure...

      Kickstarter is not going to ban him from the site. That would require them to be responsible and hold persons accountable. I mean really...you want them to do the right thing?? They got their cut from his stolen money, they dont give a crap now. as far as they are concerned, it is over. Sad to say (again)

      Munawar, I have read your posts. i agree with all you have said. However, unless kickstarter or some outside agency (cops, feds, etc) force him, he aint giving any money back. Because if he did it would require him to state and agree that he was wrong. Unless he has a change in his morals, that will not happen. Sad to say. :(

    45. Missing_small

      Creator Munawar on July 2, 2013

      Kickstarter Rules:

      Is a creator legally obligated to fulfill the promises of their project?

      Yes. Kickstarter's Terms of Use require creators to fulfill all rewards of their project or refund any backer whose reward they do not or cannot fulfill. (This is what creators see before they launch.) We crafted these terms to create a legal requirement for creators to follow through on their projects, and to give backers a recourse if they don't. 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.

      So Anes - "Kickstarter's Terms of Use require creators to fulfill all rewards of their project or refund any backer whose reward they do not or cannot fulfill".

      YOU havent fulfilled your order - refund my money.

      Still not received mine.

      I have reported him to KS - doubt it will do any good, but suggest others do the same.

      All he has done is lied to us - false promises that 'each and every order will be fulfilled' have led us all on a merry trail with no silver lining.

      He's probably reading all the posts, but just lurking and enjoying our money. Anes, I hope you are enjoying your ill-gotten gains.

      Like others have said - grow a backbone and admit you screwed up and offer refunds for those that have still not received their cards (like me). Its now 4 MONTHS since the alleged delivery date of Feb 2013.
