      This is a story about Morlock and James Brown
      A big fat grifter who raised some money then skipped town
      Than sit around the house, ignored the emails and our pleas
      4 years later we still got no pans, just our money seized
      They headed down, to Dragon Co-on
      A bunch of us backers warned that they were just scu-um
      Kickstarter helped a man acheive his dream
      None of us knew it was just a big scheme
      Hoo-hoo-hoo, he took the money and run
      That thief, he took the money and run
      Hoo-hoo-hoo, he took the money and ran
      And we still don't have our pans

    2. Toni Kerschner McGovern on January 27

      Update please. I still want my pan, thank you.

      FYI, if you file a complaint with the BBB it gives you the physical address you can serve legal papers to.

    4. GBAllison on January 23

      So June 24 is coming up. I know it seems like a long way off, but in the world of fighting pans and alternative facts, five short months is but the blink of an eye. Whaddya think? Can he go an entire year without making an appearance? Even a meaningless bungee jump Whoa I'm Here Whoa I'm Gone kind of thing?

      I'm sure others have done this and I have no expectation of receiving my money back, but I did report Morlock Enterprises to the BBB.

      Yea, mag fest is going on now, no morlock there this year. I'm sure its because he's busy making these pans

    7. Michael C. Stettes on December 28

      @Mike Gail aaaaand I'm an idiot, thank you. I don't know why my brain saw "2016" as next year.

      Those dates have already passed.

    9. Michael C. Stettes on December 27

      I've emailed www.MorlockEnterprises.com directly and got absolutely nowhere. No response.

      But apparently they're going to make appearances at

      Magfest - February 18-21, 2016

      Dragon*Con - September 2-5, 2016

      Magfest is in National Harbor, MD. And that's near me. I'm going to do what I can to bug them there. I suggest you do the same.

      Merry Christmas everybody!

      James, can we get our 6-month-update now?

    11. Cody Gabel on December 19

      4 years ago. So much has changed. Still no regular updates.

      I kickstarted this scam as a birthday gift for a girlfriend who dumped me almost THREE YEARS AGO, and we still don't even have a vague ETA of when this is a'coming. I've reported you, and will continue to report you, to the Attorney General for Fraud. This is ludicrous.

    15. L. V. on December 10

      "Happy Anniversary"...remember how excited we all were 4 years ago? Remember how cool we thought this would be?

      Lucas Baer on December 9

      I would suggest that all backers use the report this project to kickstarter button at the bottom of the page.

      What a scam project.

    17. Sebastian Diederich on November 24

      I want a refund now. I think waiting 4 years is long enough. you dont deserve the money you got.

      Well. It's been long enough for me to forget my Kickstarter password. x)
      i wonder if someone in the US could actually start a lawsuit against him...? Because i've been told that trying to sue him from my country is kinda pointless.

    19. Natasha Hart on November 21

      What's up with this??? STATUS??? It's been almost 4 years since I paid and NOTHING has been produced. I wish I did more research on this. Kickstarter says it does not issue refunds. It kind of makes me sick to see $46,261 was given to this guy and no one has received anything, much less communication!

    20. Isabella Reed on November 16

      James! HEY JAMES!! I want my money back.

    21. GBAllison on November 15

      ... Polo :-)

    22. L. V. on October 20

      So many life lessons for my $70.

      No pan but a lot of things to think about and consider then reconsider.

    23. estrus on October 5

      Checking in to see if maybe there was another woe-is-me sob story. Not even that much....

      i get the fealing, if i had startet when this Projekt startet, i would have learned how to operate a CNC and build my own pan by now. i still hope this gets made, i'm just sad james stoppt talking again.

    25. Ivan Karmanov on October 1

      I still hope to get my handle kit sometime...

    26. L. V. on September 26

      Are we still the title holder of "Longest time since project funded without receiving project"?

    27. Phil Leese on September 20

      It may come to nothing but I'd suggest anyone who hasn't already reported this project to Kickstarter should do this as soon as possible (it's at the very bottom of the main campaign page).

      A surge in reports might make Kickstarter take notice again and take some sort of action.

      Stefan on September 17

      Usually James gives us an update when we start speaking about filing lawsuits or seeking him up on a convention. Maybe it's our fault? Maybe we've been too quiet lately?

    29. Toni Kerschner McGovern on September 13

      James, for the sake of all things metal ... send us our pans already!

      Tom Heizer on September 11

      Any update???? This was my first Kickstarter project and it was a present for a friend. Haven't had the desire to fund anything else since there is no way to file a complaint or get your money back if some one steals it from you. Like this kickstarter project did to me.

      Lucas Baer on September 8

      Yeah this guy totally ripped us all off. I am most pissed about this project totally destroying my wife's interest in kickstarter.

      Matt Szymonik on August 23, 2016

      In the 3 years and 8 months that have passed since this project was funded, I have grown rather hateful of this whole thing. It's like having giving money to someone with a dream snd aspirations only to have them come back from time to time to remind you that they have done absolutely nothing of merit with the money you gave them. No, I take that back. It's not like that, it's EXACTLY what has happened.
      I would actually accept an admission that the money was used on hookers and blow at this point. I might be able to live with that over this dragged out b.s.

    33. L. V. on August 21, 2016

      You know what would go a long way to restoring faith in this project?

      If the Epic cards had been mailed out to all of the backers by now. Just starting with the smallest of the promises would have been a great place to start.

    34. Sindy Sinn on August 17, 2016

      I wonder if I'll ever get my stupid pan.

    35. Sybil Collas

      Any ETA or refund policy?

    36. Brad Dancer
      Superbacker
      on August 1, 2016

      any request for a refund has been ignored on my end as well. FB Messages, emails even snail mail - which has pissed him off, but i don't know what else to do given he's not communicating any options.

    37. Phil Leese on July 22, 2016

      I've been asking for a refund since February now through Kickstarter as well as Facebook messages. I can see the messages have been read but as yet have had no response at all.

      Anyone else hitting the same brick wall?

    38. Sal "Lasareath" Cameli on July 2, 2016

      I shared your campaign as the oldest #KickStarter campaign that is still active :)

      I'm probably not alone in my thoughts that it's an extremely "odd coincidence" that James has resurfaced with a lengthy, emotional explanation for his absence when the pressure to boycott the various Cons was pickup up momentum. Waiting years for these pans has made me cynical that way.

      It seems as if nagging Dragon*Con worked, otherwise by MERE COINCIDENCE James has finally come back to say hello.

      I have added my voice to those messaging DragonCon to get this vendor removed.

    42. L. V. on June 22, 2016

      I got a quick response to my Dragoncon email.

      to me
      Thank you so much for your email. I assure you, we are aware of this situation.

      I appreciate the heads up.

      Boycotting Dragoncon if they allow this guy.
      PLEASE come to a con near me so can conveniently slip and fall, taking your table with me and knocking all your shit over. Please.

      I have binge-watched all of Game of Thrones - TWICE - since your last update. I reckon I can swing a pan pretty bloody well. I challenge you in the old way. Me versus you. I'll bring my wife's old frying pan (that I was going to replace with this cool KS novelty sword-handled pan you promised us 4 or so years ago - 5?!) Oh, we had another kid. He can talk and play Super Mario now. I might get him to start forging pans. See how he goes, you know.

    46. Brad Dancer
      Superbacker
      on June 20, 2016

      I got the exact same response - actually would be helpful if DragonCon heard from a bunch of people if they were willing to write the email. May not do anything, but if it helps wake James up, than all the better

      Drew Newman on June 20, 2016

      Meh...nevermind...might not be worth it. I just got this email back from Dragon*Con. Maybe if enough people complain, something will happen, but probably not.
      "Hey There!
      Thank you for your email. Dragon Con does not tend to get involved between Vendors and member complaints but I will forward your email on. Please let me know that you heard from them.
      I'm sorry for your issue with this vendor. I understand your frustration.

      Drew Newman on June 18, 2016

      I totally agree with John's idea. I just sent the following email to Dragon*Con and I urge all of you to do the same. You can do so here http://www.dragoncon.org/…

      Hello. I wanted to send your company an email to let you know that there will be a vender at your Con called "Morlock Enterprises". This company does NOT make good on their sales. They steal money from people and never deliver on their product. I've ordered items from their website and never received them, never received a refund, and never received a reply when I asked about the status of my $100 order--that was placed 3 years ago. I've backed them on Kickstarter and they simply stopped responding to emails about progress--this was over 3 years ago. Morlock Enterprises is an untrustworthy vender, and I truly hope you heed this warning about allowing them to sell their lies and unfulfilled promises at your exceptionally reputable Con. Thank you for your attention and consideration.
