      Wheres the thief? I want my money!

      Looks like Washington State is. But, notice where most of the $s went...

    3. Mark Keller on July 26, 2015

      Still waiting for the promised refunds. Looks like this project could be on the FTC's radar...

    4. Bruce Murray on July 25, 2015

      I was just contacted by the Oregon State Dept of Justice regarding another project that didn't refund. Maybe they are starting to pay attention.

      Still waiting for the promised refunds. Looks like the FTC took some action on another project...

    6. Porter Haney on April 15, 2015

      Any update on the refunds Matt?

    7. Ryan W. Maple on October 27, 2014

      Of course he's smiling -- he has our money!

    8. freshsprout on October 14, 2014

      Matt, post at least some vacation pics or photos of your new car :)

      I don't understand how this was legal to not give us ANYTHING back

    10. razamataz on September 30, 2014

      Guess it was too much to hope that the project creator would have returned anyone's money, like he said he would.

    11. Ryan W. Maple on July 14, 2014

      At least this guy got a black and white photo... I'd take that in place of the Cam Crate at this point ;)

    12. Charles Conner on July 11, 2014

      it says be respectful and considerate! This is a two way street, he was not respectful or considerate, he screwed me and many others out of money!

    13. freshsprout on May 6, 2014

      Whoever files this thing mentioned by Aaron will get 10 USD via PayPal from me. Just post the proof and the 10 USD are yours...

    14. Bruce Murray on March 22, 2014

      Status of Refund?

    15. freshsprout on March 4, 2014 will never come

    16. Bruce Murray on February 5, 2014

      What is status of refund?

    17. freshsprout on January 16, 2014

      At least now it is possible to tag whether you received your pledge or not. Please remember to file the complaint at ic3.

    18. freshsprout on November 26, 2013

      Please file your complaint at - it is the least you can do!

      Kickstarter needs to have a way for users to designate some projects as failures, rather than including all funded projects in the same category. Projects such as the Cam Crate should be put onto a wall of shame, to serve as lessons in how not to manage a project, and to help ensure that those considering funding projects can see examples of how it is possible to lose your money entirely, with no good faith effort on the part of the project creator. Being put on a wall of shame might also embarrass some project creators enough to motivate them to do something about it, whether refunding money, or finishing the project, or even explaining to backers why it failed and where the money went.

      freshsprout - there are so many "frauded" kickstarter projects that no one cares anymore

      Maybe report him to the IRS. If he did not report this 'income", maybe they could do something.

    22. freshsprout on October 11, 2013

      I have asked Amazon and my CC company. Both of them said that it is too late for a refund. So nothing here...

    23. Ryan W. Maple on October 10, 2013

      @Jedediah you got your refund? Boo... anybody else? Maybe this guy is just at troll?

      I got my money back from my credit card company as soon as he went MIA. I saw a scam and got my money back.

    25. Christopher R. Souser on October 1, 2013

      Yeah.. it is a complete fraud. No word.. I also never received the so called promised refund that went out in an email at one point that he was supposedly going to do.

    26. Rich Spencer on September 30, 2013

      I most certainly still care, I still can't believe he's not been forced to pay our money back. X(

    27. Breno on September 12, 2013

      Instead of "Funded!", Kickstarter need to switch to Frauded!
      Both Matthew and kickstarter robbed us. Kickstarter got a share of the money and did nothing. Gonna be 2 years soon. ¬¬

    28. freshsprout on August 21, 2013

      I am quite surprised that apparently no one really cares about what is happening here. This project has > 300 backers and just a handful seems to care. Can someone please explain this to me?

    29. Breno on August 13, 2013

      @freshprout agreed, so i can punch his freaking face. He needs jail!

    30. freshsprout on August 9, 2013

      ...a least he should have sent an invention

    31. Benni Klomfass on August 8, 2013

      (mgeyster facebook) - so he used our money for his wedding ... hmmm

    32. freshsprout on August 1, 2013

      "Thank you for filing a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3)."

      Let's see what happens next...

    33. freshsprout on July 30, 2013

      @Breno thanks for the link. I am filing a complaint. I checked his domains to get the address but both of them are registered using a proxy.

      Company: BaseOneLabs LLC

      Disappointing that he had so much good press and failed to even update the people that supported him.

    35. freshsprout on June 25, 2013

      Don't let him run away with 24k

    36. razamataz on May 26, 2013

      Kickstarter should indeed consider adding more information to projects than simply successfully funded or unsuccessfully funded. Perhaps this could be done by adding information like "abandoned" or "failed to deliver promised results" or "delivered results but x months later than promised". There is potentially a lot of useful information in failed projects. How the project creator has handled things for example, with a failed project which was successfully funded, would be of interest particularly if that person were to launch another project. Similarly, if I were interested in launching a project of my own, reading the updates and comments from projects which were funded, but which didn't deliver all of what was promised, would be a very useful tool for planning, so as to try to avoid repeating mistakes that someone else made on a similar project.

      lIfe lesson: Kickstarter is a simple Venture capital portal. In VC as in life you win some you loose some. In this case we lost, so let's get over it and move on. I am sure that all of you are flawless in everything you do in life, and have never had anything go terribly wrong. For those people I pity your future because you are not prepared for what is ahead. For those of us who have taken a chance on an idea and have lost this is just one of those things. I can tell you that I sleep better knowing that life happens and I have the tools to deal with it. Learn these tools or face a very uncomfortable life. Kickstarter should take this page down and put it in the cyber trash, so there is no reminder of it. "LIfe is Pain" You know the rest.

      Every legit business states its contact information on the website. I am not sure how it is in the US but in many countries it is mandatory (by law) to provide full contact details. Furthermore, this is probably the only way to either reach or sue him (which I hope someone will).

    39. Ryan W. Maple on April 30, 2013

      People. Matthew is a dick, but so is posting peoples private addresses and telephone numbers on the Internet. Don't stoop to his leve....

    40. david tonnesen on April 30, 2013

      How does this not have more attention? He literally stole over $20,000.
