David Markus is a crook
This project kicks me in the shin every time I scroll through my 'Successful but still not received" list.
This was the first Kickstarter project that I ever backed. How ironic that five years later it still has not delivered.
Exactly. It's that he completely ghosted the project and all of the backers. It's a god damn shame. Fucking crook.
Two years after my last comment and I'm still bitter.
I've wasted $200 on junk that never worked right before, it isn't the money. It is that as far as I can tell this guy gave up at the first sign of trouble and then pretended like he was going to try with no real intention of actually delivering.
Hey everyone, guess what! You guessed correct, still haven’t received mine.
Same John, a constant memory on my backer list. I guess this is one for the lose column.
It is stunning to revisit this. It is clear nothing will be shipped. He should say so. It still comes up on my kickstarter list and it is the only failure I backed. So I comment.
It's pretty clear that David Markus is a scammer who defrauded hundreds of backers (whether that was his original intent or not). He had ample opportunities to make things right and refused to do the right thing all along.
Seriously dude? 200 gone. And no update since September.
At least let us know your alive. Sheesh. I feel like we should at least be friends by now 4 years I've loaned you 200. Can't even get a hello now. I see how it is.
I've written you off. Also sending an email to you just because I can.
Even getferrite.com is gone.
This guy's in the wind, folks. At least we got four years of entertainment, such as it was.
6 months and not a word from Dave and 4 years with nothing to show for it ... Throw our shit in a box and ship it out ya bum !
A dozen other ferrofluid projects have completed.
We backed the wrong horse. Your money is gone. Write it off and move on or you'll just keep getting more and more frustrated.
I am going to say that the odds of any of us getting a unit is less than 5%
I'm at the $200 level - haven't gotten anything/nor a survey. Sounds like some have received something. Would love to know what's what.
Hell, I'd be willing to compromise - if it means getting something and being able to close this one out. Are there the big ones? What does everything look like, there was some question as to this? Etc.
Can we get an update? I sometimes come back just in case; and it would appear that some have received their units. Thanks.
I just got mine, looks great!
@wesley: David mentioned he had completed the early bird tiers and made it sound like the $100 tier was next. I think we still have some waiting ahead of us.
So does this mean the $75, $100, $125, and $150 tiers have all shipped? (just checking since I'm at the $200 tier)
It's crazy to think that the 4 year mark is quickly approaching. Four years~! Hahahaha... I continue coming back to this because it's hilarious at this point that backers actually think anything is going to arrive. Just consider it a loss... Nothing is going to ever show up.
I am going to say that the odds of any of us getting a unit is less than 10%
When this project started, I had one kid. Now I have two, and the second one is taking hockey lessons.
Would love to know which tier I'm in and which tier is shipping.
Even a modest ship rate of one per week should have resulted in more progress than what seems to have been accomplished.
Any idea if he is through all of the tiers? I am still waiting on mine.
I want a refund... This has well exceeded the original ship date. Where is Kickstarter on this?
Any updates? Still wondering how you are "done with 4 tiers" when I am in the 4th tier and don't have a Ferrite yet...
How on earth do I know what tier I'm in?. I was supposed to receive a large and small one.
David - I ask because I am in the fourth tier... and I do not have a unit and have not received a survey
