      Another example of a failed Kickstarter project: "ComfyLight - The learning light that protects your home".

      But at least those creators were 'responsible' enough to leave a bye-bye message, explaining why & how the project failed:

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/comfylight/comfylight-the-learning-light-that-protects-your-h/posts/2148811

      As can be read in the comments on that project, just like here with the Shoka Bell, it's obvious that ScamStarter... err :-P, I mean Kickstarter HQ won't have anything to do with it.

      The company Shoka with product Shoka Bell did not deliver and have not responded to the investors and community for months now.
      It is rather shocking to experience, that Kickstarter does nothing to communicate to the supporters, investigate and setup at least a warning on the landing page for the project.

      You must take some positive action on this.

      Sincerely

      Most shocking news for me, is the fact that Kickstarter allows this company scam to continue their theft here.
      It is still possible to pre-order and pay for the non-existent bell on Kickstarter.
      Some endorsement!

      @Junsuh - As mentioned by Theo Harkness in an earlier post, it won't help to keep referring to the project creators' requirements... They (Daniel and the Shoka team) are simply "gone"; will not read our complaints and certainly not provide refunds. Kickstarter won't take any responsibility either.

      It's over - we take our losses and move on... :-\

      Only thing we can still do to -maybe?- somewhat "punish" these fraudulent actions is, like Travis Moore posted below, to file a complaint with the European Union (especially the EU citizens among the project backers).

      Kickstarter isn't going to support us... but Daniel and Shoka also receive EU grant money ( https://cordis.europa.eu/project/rcn/211334_en.html ) just before he stopped communication. If we can't get our money back and Kickstarter isn't interested in how we were defrauded of our money. Maybe the European Union would be interested in how Daniel used their more than 50,000 euros. I have sent the letter below to the EU anti-fraud office which oversees cases of fraud against the EU and their granting agencies. https://ec.europa.eu/anti-fraud/olaf-and-you/report-fraud_en

      The more noise we make the more likely they will investigate. Any communication by EU citizens would help the cause.

      ----------------------------------------------------
      I would like to bring your attention to the actions of a company that was rewarded a Horizon 2020 grant in July 2017. The Shoka company led by Mr. Daniel Falus applied for a grant with your organization in response to proposal H2020-SMEINST-1-2016-2017 and was awarded a grant with project ID 782040. https://cordis.europa.eu/project/rcn/211334_en.html

      This company and its founder has been involved in unprofessional and possibly fraudulent behavior and as an investor in the company I would like to bring your attention to this situation as it is likely in violation of your granting agency's policies.

      Prior to the award of grant #782040, Shoka Company and Mr. Daniel Falus initiated a crowdsourced round of investment for the Shoka company via kickstarter.com. This investment campaign ended on September 2016 and resulted in 1,673 people investing a total of $200,819. Since the ending of the investment round Shoka and Mr. Daniel Flaus have not delivered on the agreed products nor have they explained the cause of the delay. This has resulted in the Shoka company and Mr. Flaus to be in violation of kickstarter policies and terms of service. Mr. Falus refuses to communicate with his investors and has not made any communication with his investors since Nov 2017. Shortly after you rewarded the Shoka company with 71,429 Euros they ceased communication with their investors.

      It is possible that once they received your grant they then proceeded to defraud your agency as well as 1,673+ of their investors.

      To date the Shoka company and Mr. Falus have not provided any credible evidence that they have even attempted to complete the proposed and funded equipment. And their lack of transparency seriously raises doubt that they ever intended to develop said equipment.

      While it is quite possible that the Shoka Company and Mr. Falus have taken the kickstarter raised $200,819 and defrauded its investors without recourse. I believe that that the EU and Horizon 2020 granting agency should not be party to such behavior.

      I hope that this letter will prompt the investigation of the possible misrepresentation of fact within a grant application and misuse of European Union grant money.

      You people need to stop copying and pasting from these “terms and conditions” like we are owed something. We aren’t. Kickstarter will not help us. Daniel and the Shoka team have ghosted.

      Hi Michael,

      Thanks for following up, and sorry to hear that backing these projects has turned into a frustrating experience for you. Kickstarter’s mission is to help support creative freedom and independence. Our site operates on a system of trust – we expect and encourage creators to be honest with their backers about project delays when they arise. While we provide a platform for creators to fund their projects, we don’t step into the actual creative process itself or manage the fulfillment and shipment of rewards.

      If you haven’t already, it might be helpful to read through our Terms of use, which outlines the responsibilities of backers and creators.

      We hope that helps to answer your question. Please let us know if we can help with anything else in the meantime."

      Daniel Falus is criminal, that should be clear to everyone. But as kickstarter is synonymous, I think is also criminal. The project is celebrated as a success, there is still the "Pre-Order" button. One got his agency fee and out. Nowhere is it warned or the project founder clearly asked to close the project. I will not support a project through kickstarter anymore.

      @Holly Rose – I'm sorry to point this out... But I'm afraid we're *way* past the stage of the Shoka team "wanting to make sure everything is perfect before sending out" :-(
      _
      Actually, any "sending out" doesn't seem to be an option at all, as there is no product. Even though all the money we supposedly 'invested' has been spent... so that also rules out any chance of a refund.

      Not to be negative... just realistic, sadly :'(

      "Thank you for following up with us about the status of this project. I’m sorry you’ve been experiencing these issues with communication.

      We've reached out to the creator to remind them of their obligation to communicate with you and your fellow backers, and passed along your concerns. I'm as frustrated as you that you haven't heard from the creator yet -- it's their responsibility to communicate and complete the project as promised.

      Trust is integral part of that relationship between creators and backers. Although we are unable to offer refunds on projects, we are constantly working to improve the vetting process for creators and make sure Kickstarter is a beneficial place for both the creator and backer.

      I too have sent the following to Kickstarter, and urge any and all project backers to do the same. Thanks

      The Project "Shoka Bell: The Ultimate City Cycling Tool" I backed stopped responding to comments and inquiries and as a backer I expected to either receive my reward or at least be kept up to date on the progress. The project's create has gone silent for almost a year now. What is the course of action that I can take? The whole situation reflects really negatively upon Kickstarter and my willingness to back future projects is definitely gone because of this experience. This is a high profile project, and looking at the comments section of the project I see a lot of other backers have contacted you. You need to act upon this as the creator has had malicious intents with the project either from the beginning or along the way.

    36. Travis Moore on March 2

      Daniel,
      10 days after contacting you directly and posting on this comment board there has been no update to this project. As I outlined in my previous post, due to lack of any communication to your backers I have no choice to begin the process of contacting the relevant authorities and Kickstarter to report your possible fraud and terms of use violations.

      I also do not appreciate your recent comment to HVG.hu where you stated that "the Kickstarter campaign was the R & D phase”. This is not how the project was portrayed at the time of funding nor what the timeline on the kickstarted page outlined… if it had I would have not backed this project. Your apparent misrepresentation of the project and defrauding of 1,673 people of $200,819 leaves no choice but take these steps. It brings me no please to do so as I believe in participating and funding innovative ideas, but that backing comes with responsibilities... the least of which is honesty and communication with those who have invested their hard earned money.

      Additionally, I have also started to compile a list of journalists that published articles about your Kickstarter campaign which were influential in my backing of your project. I will be contacting them in the coming days to replicate your successful BUZZ generation but this time about current state of this project and your behavior as a project creator.

      I encourage all backers to take similar steps.

    37. Richard Nobel on March 2

      @Ramon Van Damme - well, Kickstarter doesn't seem to have any interest in getting involved in situations like this.

      Maybe it helps if we stand together as a larger group?

      Otherwise, I'm afraid that individual complaints won't help us any further :-(
      Last November (!!!) I did get some kind of standard reply from KS. To summarize, I quote the important sentences from their message:

      "While we provide a platform for creators to start their projects, it’s up to them to manage reward fulfillment. [...] It’s important to remember that many projects on Kickstarter are in the early stages of development. That means as a backer you get to be a part of the creative process. It also means backing a project on Kickstarter different from purchasing an item in a store."

      Hi, I would like a refund of my money. The project has been delayed a lot, it seems unusual to me.

    40. Theo Harkness on March 1

      This is the latest update folks, from a translated news agency:

      It was a real success story, but later a mischievous campaign ended with a Kickstarter: although money was coming together, there was no shanghai biking shoe called Shoka Bell, because of the continuous sliding of the promise of delivery and lack of communication. Even though the product has been paid by enthusiastic donors supporting the project. About 1.5 years after the campaign was closed.

      We have also reported about a palm-sized supplement designed for bikers, which can handle almost any problem affecting cyclists: it can be used as a good-looking good-looking bell, as a lighting device, or even as an alarm, but probably because of its GPS function.

      The project was advertised by Kickstarter, where the money needed for its implementation was collected, but nothing came out of the product: first it was promised by March 2017, then by June and then by December, but not yet one and a half years after the campaign was closed get the supporters their own Shoka Bell.

      Qubit has recently caught up with developer Daniel Falus, who said that product and software development and hardware development have been completed, the product is ready to go, but until now, they have run out of money, so they have not been able to embark on serial production.

      Village says that San Francisco's startup is still ongoing, but if it fails to agree on the merger, they will publish the source code at most.

      On the continued sliding of the product, he said, "the Kickstarter campaign was the R & D phase, but if you already have a series-ready tool, you have to switch to a completely different mode," he said, "this is like when the caterpillar it's a butterfly, and we have not managed to get it up. "

      The developer added that he "commits bad communication," and that "the products will be delivered when I think they are in a hundred percent state." However, there is still no news of its date, even one and a half years after the campaign ended and almost a year after the first deadline expired.

      I want a refund.. but I think the likelihood of that is about the same as getting these bloody bells.

      Useless!!!

      I have no experience with a class action claims, but I have contacted Kickstarter with the following feedback message:

      The Project "Shoka Bell: The Ultimate City Cycling Tool" I backed stopped responding to comments and inquiries and as a backer I expected to either receive my reward or at least be kept up to date on the progress. The project's create has gone silent for almost 6 months now. What is the course of action that I can take? The whole situation reflects really negatively upon Kickstarter and my willingness to back future projects is definitely gone because of this experience.

      Is anyone starting a class action claim against Shokabell?

      Dear Daniel, you agree the terms of use by founding this project. We gave our trust in this project, lend you money for it. I think we deserve a honest Update, me and others here are not willing to wait any longer. Please note, that you are committed to give us updates per section 4 of the Terms of use.

      Daniel,
      Please provide an update to your backers concerning the Shoka Bell, per section 4 of the Kickstarter Terms of use.
      It has now been more than 100 days since your last update and almost 18 months since the Shoka Bell was funded and you entered into a business relationship with your backers by accepting our money.

      If we do not receive a substantial update within 7 days, I will have no recourse than to report your violation of Kickstarter Terms of use and possible fraudulent business activities to the:
      Federal Trade Commission - https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/GettingStarted ,
      FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center - https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx ,
      European Commission - European Anti-Fraud Office - https://ec.europa.eu/anti-fraud/olaf-and-you/report-fraud_en and
      Kickstarter - https://www.kickstarter.com/contact .

      _______________________________

      To all backers, I agree with Kathy and encourage you all to copy and paste the above statement into the Shoka Bell comments as a show of support and disappointment in the current state of our investment. I have also sent the message to Daniel as a direct kickstarter message. If we do not hear back in a week we can all contact the appropriate authorities and Kickstarter. It is becoming apparent that Daniel may have defrauded 1,673 people of $200,819. We now need all 1,673 investors to stand up and demand accountability.
