      I too received a mail stating that they'll be refunding me in the form of cheque to which I replied that going to very expensive for me to in cash a US cheque hence please refund via directly credited my account or send the refund back to my credit card. Since then I haven't heard anything for them �

      I think this could be made to a film, exposing the reality what a failed Kickstarter campaign could look like.

      @Jonatan Skogsfors Same situation here in Finland. I asked about a wire transfer, but they said it's not currently possible.

    6. Jonatan Skogsfors on July 8

      I just got contacted about getting a refund. They want to send me a check for the amount. In my country (Sweden) cashing a US check can be expensive since it has to be sent back to the US for validation. What is the situation in other non-US countries?

      It's almost a year since I've backed this. I've been waiting for my refunds since last December and still waiting, sending emails to kickstarters etc with no reply.

      Until about a month ago, I sent a query to Fitbit in Twitter, they replied and tell me to send an email at kickstarter@pebble.com as that email is for this kind of situation, and so I did. Fortunately I did receive a reply responsible for Pebble's creditor. However, it may take them weeks to a month for reply since there are a lot of people emailing to them as well. (Thousands of backers). I'll let you know if I get refunded. At least this is making me look forward and being optimistic towards the problem more.

      Hopefully this helps anyone out there.

      @饒澤華 Fitbit's behavior and lack of honesty/accountability is why I'm boycotting them, too. These are the same people who bought out "Coin" and look where that went (hint: down like the Fitbit stock price). Karma?

      @Woravit Nope, not at all. I've sent a "Proof of Claim" document via Airmail and an e-mail to Kickstarer/Pebble/Fitbit but nothing helps. How wonderful modern scam is!

      Being the 3rd most funded project and not delivered, should Pebble be pulled from this ranking?

    15. Ujwal Puri on June 4

      No refund, no message at whatsoever email address you mail it to. Shameful and disgusting.

      I got a mail from Fitbit today, I'm attaching what I got here:

      Dear Kickstarter Backer,

      On December 6, 2016, Pebble Industries, Inc. and Pebble Technology, Corp. (collectively, the “Company” or “Pebble”) entered into an Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors (the “Assignment”). The Assignment is an insolvency proceeding undertaken under state law, in this case the State of California. Pursuant to the Assignment, a company called “Pebble Tech (assignment for the benefit of creditors), LLC” as assignee (“Assignee”) sold certain Pebble assets to Fitbit, Inc. (NYSE:FIT) (“Fitbit”). After this sale to Fitbit (the “Sale”), Pebble devices no longer were manufactured or supported. Backers of Pebble’s Kickstarter fundraising program who had not received their rewards as of December 6, 2016 were to be provided a full refund for any unfulfilled rewards by the Assignee. These refunds were issued in December 2016.

      Any backer who believes that he or she has not yet received a refund for any unrewarded product(s), or has any other question related to the Pebble Kickstarter refund program, should send an email to the Assignee atkickstarter@pebble.com, and include the following information:

      · Your full name;
      · The original email associated with the account used to make the pledge; your current/active email address, if different;
      · Your full mailing address; and,
      · Explanation and logic pertaining to your refund claim for the unrewarded product(s)

      Please note that additional information in accordance with the Assignment proof of claim process may be required by the Assignee to review your claim. Upon submitting an email to kickstarter@pebble.com, Assignee will provide any such additional and necessary forms and instructions. The deadline for submitting a claim is June 5, 2017, i.e. 180 days from the date of the Assignment, as stipulated under California law.

      On behalf of the Pebble organization, your loyal support of the Pebble community and brand is appreciated.

      Sincerely,
      Ricardo M and the Fitbit Team

      I've sent an email to Kickstarter the 28th of March, no answer. The fraud is not only from Pebble, but also from Kickstarter. They have to publish an information about the status of this fraud. Else if it is not their and explain why they tax their custumers and how they use these benefit.
      I understand cleary that Kickstarter campaigns are not pre-sales. I can understand that a project can suddenly stop because of bankrupt for example. But when a compagny is sold and the pledges are not taken, the vendor make a kind of fraud of my point of view. I'm waiting of a clear information from Kickstater, that inform any backers of this campaign.

      "Hi, thanks for reaching out. Fitbit acquired certain assets such as intellectual property and key personnel but did not take ownership of Pebble smart watches. Kickstarter was in charge of distributing refunds for the campaign. If you haven't received your refund, we recommend reaching out to them for more information."

      Maybe we can get it

      #####################################################
      @all Pebble backers, who did not receive a refund:
      #####################################################

      A guy from Germany (https://www.twitter.com/ConLuegering ) also supported Pebble and did not receive a pebble nor any refund. He has written a document with the basic details about this campaign, potential solutions on how to get your refund and has set up a questionnaire for all backers for statistics, he regularly posts on his twitter channel.

      He cannot post this information to the Kickstarter comments section anymore, since he is no longer a backer and received his refund (If you are not a backer, you cannot post comments here).

      This is the link to the document which states history of the campaign, the takeover from Fitbit and actions to take for (hopefully) getting a refund: https://goo.gl/AmlWGB18 .
      This link will lead you to the questionnaire (might take 5-8 minutes of your time): https://goo.gl/forms/zZLy6plVDbEDmUPo129
      All questions in the questionnaire are optional. He does not ask for confidential data or private data (except the city/state you live in).

      Sad to say, I have written off this. I am not expecting any refunds or product. I understand Kickstarter is only a monitoring party and have limited say in how the creators use the money from us.

      However, I could have wished that Kickstarter would do a check of the creator esp when the amount funded was over USD10m. As for Pebble, let just hope that the creators does not do this again and 'con' the public.

      @koonohr I've been thinking the same checking in reading comments and can't believe people still waiting for refunds I was a lucky one to have received my pebble 2 and it's been working great since I got it.

      I received Pebble 2 in November 2016, and got a refund for canceled 2 items, Time 2 + All-New Pebble Core in January 2017.
      Pebble Team took $45 for shipping of Pebble 2 even though Pebble Team said $45 would be the shipping fee for 3 items.
      I can't believe that there are people who haven't received their rewards and refunds.
      Pebble Team is definitely unfaithful.
      People who were deceived should leave as many comments as possible here.

      I haven't received any refund as yet??? Can we sue this company and bring this company to shame in public worldwide.
