      I don't need refund can't wait for this to come out. Been a couple years but man I'm still excited. LMFAO such a joke so sad that these people in life had to stup to this level. What's great is that we don't even have to judge them. At some point they will die and will be judged. Obviously they won't be judged about kickstarter but they will be judged and as much fun as it is to have this money for a few years it means nothing in the long run.

      Kickstarter is a haven for fraud that should have been shut down by the California AG.

      There is a reason eBay thrives and kickstarter dies - a pro-consumer policy thar severely penalizes fraudsters.

      Another Kickstarter Protected SCAM. Take our money yes take it Kickstarter and @waveCable damn hope you have fun with it. Scammer go to kickstarter because they know they'll be above the law :) approved by kickstarter :) They never contacted the project creator checking where they are now or how is the project going.

      What about anyone can tell me how to do something for it, i would like to get my refund.

    15. Rebecca Brandon on January 17, 2016

      Not that it'll help but I'm reporting them. Going on my list of about a handful of Kickstarter projects that screwed me. Any time I come across any of their online marketplaces or forums I let people know their reputation. Sometimes if it pops into my head, I'll get angry again and tweet about it. I recommend others do the same. Let other prospective customers out there know their reputation & that they should be avoided. Bad business practices generally don't bode well for product quality. So thanks for flaking PUSH, may you reap what you sow. Go get bent.

    16. Tiffany Nolan on January 5, 2016

      I'd be happy to join anyone with an official complaint to the FTC but I'm not sure what category and options to select. Any tips from those show already submitted one?

      I also tried to get the money back from my bank/credit card company a while back but they were not accommodating and didn't understand the issue no matter how I explained it.

      I've had really good luck for the most part with the projects I backed. It's a shame to see this type of thing happen, especially for what looked like a really cool case.

      Still waiting.
      After the new year, a lawsuit will be filed against ALL of my non-delivered KickStarters. The suit will include KickStarter and Amazon as well. They all received money, whilst the backers have received nothing.

      I wouldn't count on a comment from Dapperbox. Ben Yoshiharo and Dapperbox haven't logged onto their account since October 2014. This project is dead and Ben Yoshiharo and his fellow workers are criminals who have stolen all of our money.

      John Maggiacomo on October 30, 2015

      Is it possible for Dapperbox to use this space to "cheer" up the backers, and be respectful for our patience, along with a thoughtful and honest prognosis of completion and delivery? I believe if the project has indeed failed, they should state it so as not to jeopardize the faith backers have in others using Kickstarter.

    21. Jerauld on October 23, 2015

      Second time a project has turned out to be blatant fraud and Kickstarter won't help (I'm guessing since they already have their percent of the money).
      Ot's too bad there are legitimate projects out there can use funding but I am not risking it anymore. A guy raises thousands for making potato salad but we are victims of theft for backing a seemingly legit project.

    22. Daren Han on October 14, 2015

      If there is no case to be delivered, I believe a refund will be the right thing to do.

    23. John on October 1, 2015

      Ok, I guess I have to admit I got scammed. I wanted to believe the best... :(

      And thanks to the user #Tony Carey for posting that link.... quick read of the impact of that court case:

      "Each of its 31 Washington-based backers will get a payment of $668 for their troubles.

      This case is important because until now, a court has never forced a crowdfunding campaign to pay up for failed promises. It shows that backers have a legal recourse when they’re defrauded.

      Kickstarter’s terms of service state that project creators must “make every reasonable effort to find another way of bringing the project to the best possible conclusion for backers” if the project fails to live up to its promises. In many ways, that’s just lip service. Kickstarter isn’t on the hook when campaigns like this go south. Donors aren’t seen as investors, and none of the campaigns are sure successes—when you give money to a Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or GoFundMe, you’re giving money to help someone attempt to make a dream a reality. You’re not guaranteed any results. And that means it’s easy as hell to rip people off on mainstream crowdfunding platforms.

      That’s why cases like this are crucial for quality control. If the platforms can’t or won’t police their users, fraud will either get addressed in court or not at all."

      We either stand together or cry in the corner alone and powerless, there has always been power in numbers...

    26. Geri "Blooming" Fortune on September 23, 2015

      I just reached out to this guy via the website (yes its still up) I know its a shot in the dark but i don't beleive he doesn't read these comments sitting at his laptop late night in the dark hiding out... I posted a couple months ago for people to send me their email address and if we had at least 30% of the 1200 backers we could have filed a Class Action against him and Kickstarter... The case would be picked up by national news, especially in this day and age... But lets see if he responds to me. I gave him my phone number he lives here in ca as do I, so lets see what happens. Either way I think we should all file a complaint with the FTC for fraud/scams... feedback?

      My mother works with the office of consumer affairs and is filing a report on this project due to the lack of communication and customer support. You don't take people's money without providing a product. It's against the law. I also contacted my bank and got a full refund from this shitty kickstarter project. See ya never

    42. The Alamo on April 27, 2015

      I really need an update.
      I totally understand how life gets busy, but people paid you money in good faith.
      I have already won a substantial jury award from another kickstarter project; thus, I am not afraid to go after any project creator to get my money back.
      I should also tell you that it is a federal crime to take money over the Internet and not fulfill your part. If is called wire fraud. Since their are numerous people involved, you could be charged under the RICO act for raquetearing, punishable for jail time and $10,000 per incident.
      Trust me, I will not back down from going after fraudsters here on Facebook.
      Please either mail my product or refund my money.......NOW!

    45. Geri "Blooming" Fortune on March 9, 2015

      yes grow verde was a Vespa site ( parental service we sold) we still control the web emails, and to answer you John, the lawyer would take the case Pro Bono because of the visibility it would generate. its not dwelling on the past at all. I've backed 7 projects over two accounts and this is the only project that has not delivered. if we want better accountability from Kickstarter and or the project creators it has to start somewhere... This is not the 1st project that has failed to deliver after it was successfully backed and it won't be the last. But if we take steps to limit them (failed projects) the change will either happen on Kickstarter side or the creators...

      Zhuhui Di and Bryan, yes our old site is Vespa based and the email posted was the best way for people to communicate with me vs creating a NEW email, I don't need another email to check. this one is already loaded on my IOS and I would get the notifications asap... thanks for raising the ?'s...

      Geri. So if we won't get our money back or the product then I'm unclear on the goal of suing them. Sure I would probably feel better that they couldn't get away and have to fess up but it seems to be dwelling on the past too much. How would you propose to pay a lawyer anyways?
