just reported this project and i would suggestion we all should do this. The more the better! They scammed off with 40k$ thats not a small amount of money and i see no chance we will ever here again from then or LOL getting the game LOL...
"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."
Please provide a refund for my pledge amount.
You know, while I'm glad I only threw in $10. I would totally still back it now. They almost deserve my money just for the shit they came up with. I just looked at the pitch again, it's fucken sweet.
I hope the guys that did the scam spent the money for cancer treatment.
im assuming this project is dead?
as Aaron Gelb said, the worst thing about this is that the game actually did look rad. guess that's the point, though!
i'm glad to say that this is the only scam KS i've backed out of 60+ projects. i'm still a big proponent of KS and hope to see a lot less of these kinds of projects in the future.
This was one of two scam projects I backed... actually, the second one doesn't feel like a scam, just that the guy kinda gave up... There are several that sent a refund, a few that still are working on finishing what they started (long after they should have completed it). In my opinion, as long as someone tries to finish their project, despite running out of cash, I can respect that and wait. As a PC gamer, my backlog is massive, so I don't mind things taking longer.
This was my first scam on Kickstarter and, luckily, the only one. (Confirmed at least.) I still visit from time to time in hope that those crooks got arrested or at least fined for that or something else.
I guess we now know where the "Con"Ex comes from...
Firstly, fuck these guys. Secondly, I sincerely hope this was their first and last con, but I seriously doubt it. Once you taste blood money like they have I don't imagine they go back.
Also, it's a shame such a good idea got soiled by the likes of con-guys like them.
If there's anyone who was inspired by this idea also happens to make games, I'm sure they wouldn't mind if you changed the name (so they couldn't sue you for intellectual prop-whatever) and made this idea in your own right.
Because lets be honest, the idea for this game looked fucking sick.
Maksym Pashanin, the internet never forgets!
The worst part is that the game looked SO COOL. Shame it will never be made.
I like to come back here for giggles. This was the first fraudulent backing I was apart of, makes me think how far we may have come. Unfortunately, this was not the last scam I would back.
Anyone find out anything new about these guys ?
Can't believe it we have been scammed.
Any new news? Still no help from KS or Amazon.
Woof. After reading about Pashanin's dubious history, his profile icon takes on a new meaning. Also, fellow kickstarter-backers, don't let an experience like this sour you on the rest. I've backed a number of other campaigns and have found myself much more satisfied!
Although this experience has taught me to take a closer look at the people behind a campaign I may back.
just my luck the first kickstarter i do is a scam :D well i didn´t stop with kickstarter and got a lot of cool new boardgames;)
This game looks so nice, is the tech demo still available somewhere?
Biggest fucking scam.
I "only" pledged $10, so it's not a huge deal.
I just feel bad for those twenty people who pledged $100.
"Be respectful and considerate huh?"
Sure, maybe if I'm refunded my money for not receiving something I paid for.
Does anyone have the demo saved so I can play my $10 tech demo? :(
Well the precedent has now been set...
2,386 backers pledged $39,739 to help fund a piece of shit scammer. Myself included in those backers...
So Is that ANYTHING updated about this game ?
If anyone lives in Austin, Texas, I think that's where they live now.
Yay it's been over a year since they left with our money!
Would it be possible to file a complaint at FTC's web page here: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov ? I'm not sure if that makes much sense and how to do that properly.
P.S. Idea came from this article: https://www.ftc.gov/news-events/press-releases/2015/06/crowdfunding-project-creator-settles-ftc-charges-deception
Some people just needs to be high fived.
In the face.
With a chair.
прихуели братцы. жизнь накажет пиздюков
It's not happening, and we aren't getting our money back.
any news on this??
I don't think there are many options concerning legal action. The only action you can take is to punch him in the face if you happen to run into him.
Anyone interested in pursuing legal action? Not sure what can be done, but I think its worth investigating.
Bunch of crooks!
This kickstarter is a bad joke - made four times the target and rode off into the sunset. Not impressed.
Bummer.. no.5 in a grand total of 175 projects backed. And in only 1 of those 5 i saw it coming in hinesight.
Dan Hall, I asked the same question about three weeks ago and got no response on here. Just to let you know, I have emailed AmazonPayments and they hide behind the "been too long to care policy." Kickstarter staff did actually email me back but they also did not care too much. Was just given a series of "We're sorry for your bad experience" lines from KickStarter.
anyone got an update on these con artists?
Seems like those without an icon are naive as F.
Concerning this project, has anyone recieved a response from either Kickstarter or AmazonPayments?
As of August, the scum brothers seem to have snuck out of the condo they were squatting in and have never been heard from since. Who cares, I'm out $25 bucks....I've lost more than that in donated pants pockets.
Either way, lesson learned. This whole thing is over.
The only real tragedy (other than the poor woman who had to go through the AirBnB debocle) is that this game looked SOOO cool.
I still want to believe... But that Air bnb thing has really thrown me for a loop.
The picture is "ConEx". Ex-con, or just a con? Scumbag.
deader as dead
Pedro, super unlikely. As far as I know kickstarter is very strict with their "buyer beware" Policy. Refunds can only come from the person running the project.
I believe. I still believe... :D
