      Man, after my last backed project failed (Soundband) I figured I’d check out my others. Then I was like, “let’s see how MyIDKey did, like to get that still. Maybe they have it in their website with an updated model”. Lol, well glad to see I backed out of this project ahead of time. Just as bad as sound band. Smh. No more Kickstarter for new tech projects for me. 2 excellent concepts that failed to produce anything. I suggest you guys do what I did with sound band and ask for, at the very least, a voucher for a free Mcdonalds meal for your contributions.

      This was my very first kickstarter project that I backed. This project is what brought me to kickstarter. Funny, that the very project that brought me to Kickstarter is one that has never been fulfilled. People pledge hard earned money to only lose it. Please provide an update or speak facts about the future or lack thereof for this product.

      @Sherri & @Steven - Sadly they won't be returning any money to anyone. Nor product. No refunds. Consider it a total fail on the part of MyIDkey / Arkami

      Time for another update. We know we're not going to get what we paid for but at least have the decency to be honest and own the fact these devices are never coming and that there are better products already on the market now. Big waste of money. Not happy

      We need to get a law that does not like projects like this take money unless they have a product to sell. That is the issue with these sties, a lot of people will get the product but some will not. I was burned on a few projects 3 out of maybe 20. I will not back expensive projects any longer. Kickstarter needs to get things like this under control. They hold the money or something like that.

      I think all we can do now is follow Chen and his team and protest any other projects, whether on kickstart or elsewhere.

      Has anyone made any inquiries on a class action lawsuit and what it takes to get one started? At this point, it does not seem like anyone is getting a dime for a refund from these folks. Something needs to be done quick before the statue of limitation is exceeded.

      Check out the Management Team from Sonovation. You are going to see some familiar faces from the scammer team http://www.sonavation.com/management-3/ the very same person which started the project here in kickstarter from Arkami Inc. is still in the Manager list from Sonovation. This was all planned from start. Take our money and scam everybody.

    31. Oliver Irgendwo on March 10, 2017

      They are professional criminals at Sonovation and Arkami, Inc. first they took our $500.000 and developed the hell out of it, than they simple sold the company to Sonovation with some fake deal to sneak out of their obligation. Now selling under different name and products specs. the products which we have financed. And on top of all this Kickstarter just let it be like many other scams as well. Never again! I am cured from crowdfunding projects thats for sure!

    32. Lawrence J Speece on February 20, 2017

      Thanks Arik for the information you provided. I was unaware that Sonovation had not made any progress with the IDKEY-M! What a fiasco this has become. I have to wonder what Ben's role is in all this mess??

    33. Roger Brown on February 13, 2017

      KS = Keep Scamming?

    34. Matt Symons on February 11, 2017

      I live about 10 minutes from Sonovation's office here in Florida. Think I might stop by there to say hello.

      The final nail in this coffin has been nailed long time ago.

      Re: Consumer Complaint by Arik , Complaint ID No. 90379XXX
      Dear Sir or Madam:
      On January 13, 2017, Sonavation Inc. (“Sonavation”) received the above-referenced complaint from the Better Business Bureau servicing Southeast Florida and the Caribbean (“BBB”) (the “Complaint”). By way of his Complaint, Arik (“Mr. Arik”) contends that a product initially presented by Arkami, Inc. (“Arkami”), and into which he invested monetary funds, has not been produced to date. He is requesting a refund of his investment from Sonavation. Sonavation appreciates the opportunity to provide this response.
      By way of background, Arkami presented the “myIDKEY” product through Kickstarter PBC (https://www.kickstarter.com), a web-based funding site (“Kickstarter”), in March 2013. For various reasons, the product was not delivered to Kickstarter participants and Arkami was unable to continue its operations. In December 2014, Sonavation acquired the foreclosed assets of Arkami from its secured shareholders. Following the acquisition, it became evident that Sonavation needed to invest additional time, energy, and resources to complete development of the product. Should Sonavation succeed in resolving certain design flaws, the company can apply for and obtain the required industry certifications and export approvals which are a prerequisite for delivery of the IDKEY™ M to consumers. Sonavation regrets any inconvenience Mr. Arik may have experienced.
      If you, or Mr. Arik, have any additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at 561-209-1201. Thank you once again for allowing Sonavation the opportunity to address this customer concern.

      Very truly yours,
      Bruce Rector
      Bruce Rector
      Chief Financial Officer & Chief Compliance Officer
      Sonavation, Inc.

      2 years and still nothing. No refund and now we have an orange turd in the White House. FML.

    41. Brett Unruh on January 20, 2017

      This is ridiculous. We all deserve a refund. We have endured a long enough wait.

      On that note and without any personal gain from it have a look at Qkey - A smart, simple, and secure online experience.Its here on Kickstarter

      4 years later, and it's kind of sad that a solo hacker has made more progress building something on his lonesome than the entire project team + Sonavations have achieved here.
