Want my money back or an product !
Look at the Zano case
Kickstarter was forced to do something.
But an 2Million$ case makes more noise then 1.438.765$
So 3.520 Backers should open an case at Kickstarter.
They should check where the money gone.
And if there are only 20,000$ left…I take 33% of my money instead of loosing all.
I just clicked the "report this Project" Button
How's that new design coming, yeah right....
You promised us to fulfill the backers, so don't come after 3 years with a crappy printer like the buccaneer is!
You know I've wasted over $1000.00 on this website now. I've backed this 3D printer and that Agent Smartwatch. Kickstarter obviously openly embraces people committing fraud on their website. Just with those two products alone that's over 2 million dollars in scams. We should start a Kickstarter campaign to buy Kickstarter and shut it down.
Well, it wasn't like I actually believe that they will honour the backers
Looks like Amazon must have given the suckaneer the boot.
They are shlepping off on ebay now.
Interesting the other products are automated cat litter boxes
I don't find it on Amazon, do you have a link?
Amazon also shows none available and do not no when or If they will be. Curious.
I want my refund!!! It has been way too long!
Terry, here is Pirate3D's comment on Amazon in response to a customer question if they would actually be shipped to Amazon purchasers: "Yes they will, like all new orders. The revenue that's generated from these sales goes into fulfilling Kickstarter."
If people are receiving it then that is another giant slap in the face for us backers.
Phil people are receiving them... There were comments on Amazon at one point I think
Anyone want to start a raffle? I'd be in for a buck. Let's collect enough to try and buy one on amazon and see if it really ships. I doubt it. Then we could have the 'winner' (I'm not so sure) give it a consumer level review. Might be a fun experiment, however the outcome seems pretty predictable. Could you imagine the creators faces when they actually receive an order? Whoo hoo, hats, horns, confetti! !! Oh crap we have to ship one, dammit. Lol
They are offering the suckaneer foe sale on Amazon but I doubt that any are actually being bought.
At that price a person would be nuts to buy the piece of crap.
Kickstarter ignored the fact that it's being sold on Amazon in my letter to them. I replied asking again and reiterating that they are selling this on Amazon... Blatantly ignored that fact again.
We all understand that projects can fail. BUT BLATANT SCAMMING OF YOUR CUSTOMERS IS UNACCEPTABLE. That is not the same thing that Kickstarter keeps saying.... that Pirate3D failed... They didn't fail. They are selling on Amazon. Just like Coolest Cooler.
My pledge included 5 cartridges, how about sending me the filament so I can use it on a different 3d printer?
Hey creators, grow some balls as you obviously don't have any. Be men and admit this us over and you are failures.
i've already given you the address and company registration number of the pirates.
why are there still posts of how to sue or how to contact them etc?
GO READ THE POST BELOW!
Can we repot to Amazon that they are selling our printers ?
Four years without receiving my 3d printer, or a refund, or even an answer, most do not receive or an opinion, I invested on Jun 26 2013 $ 547 and waited for the weather to send ship to anywhere in the world with estimated time for April 2014 which also paid for it. But where's my fucking 3D printer? Where do I keep in touch with the Buccaneer as the URL https://pirate3d.zendesk.com forum does not work?
Se houver algum brasileiro que não recebeu a sua impressora 3D, quero entrar em contato para saber se recebeu ou não a impressora, e se receberam alguma justificativa para tal!
FOR RESALE : I'm getting rid of my brand new Buccaneer for $400 shipping included, payment by WBT only. PM me or email me http://scr.im/corgol
I know they SAY that it's all gone, but who really knows? The timing on delivery on Amazon tells me they have product pre-built already and it's just a shipping delay. It seems they have plenty of product already built, but they just want to make more money off of it above and beyond our measly $297. I've emailed kickstarter about this. They need to do something legal wise about this issue.
most likely it's pay and build scheme from Amazon.
Not that it's pre-built, but build on demand.
By the way, the money they've got from kickstarters are all GONE. Don't expect them to fulfill their duties to us, because it ain't gonna happen. Let's face it guys.
KickStarter needs to do something about this ASAP. They are blatantly bypassing fulfilling their duties to us and selling on Amazon.... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TGROEI2/ref=dra_a_rv_hp_hn_xx_P1700_1000…
Umm, they claim it cost $700 to build the printer? I think not... and they are now selling them on Amazon for $588..... WTH? You are selling the printer on Amazon? http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TGROEI2/ref=dra_a_rv_hp_hn_xx_P1700_1000…
Let's no blame the company. But rather, focus on the people behind this scamming company. Do recognise their names, faces. We do not want more future victims! Let's not pass on the hurts to others. Do not support any of their work. Rather, spread their beasty, their scams and tactics, and how they have hurt folks who believed in them. Let them learn their lessons so they will never ever recover from this incident.
Ask Us link to ZenDesk is still broken.
Forum link to lefora is still up with one KickStarter comment in the public section. http://pirate3dcommunity.lefora.com
The FAQ still has no mention of the #1 question regarding anything to do with Kickstarter.
Did get a laugh that our warranty is only good for one year after the purchase date!
Buy Now link still works and their PayPal account is still active. Anyone want to send them $588? Usually in fraud cases PayPal is quick to shutdown offending accounts when notified.
Asking KickStarter to at least refund or credit their 5%+ fee they charged seems link a no brainer for failed projects.
I only bid on it because Kickstarter had it listed as San Francisco and I trusted US consumer laws.
Singapore also has good governance so a lawsuit for the $1 million dollar heist of over 3k backers would have a good chance of succeeding.
Count me in for legal actions as well. I'd like my money back to ACTUALLY get a 3D printer this century...
Hmmm... they got deactivated their zendesk help desk (https://pirate3d.zendesk.com/). I've been trying to get their attention there but nothing. They responded there some number of months ago (now I don't have access to the message history...) but recently they were silent. And I tried to be as reasonable and "respectful and considerate".
Count me in for legal actions.
Dear I would like to know definitively if I have my printer, or what I will have to pay to get one. Thank you
This is what they wrote to a backer on Youtube. "Our kickstarter campaign it was a $300 was to help fund the research and design. That $300 doesn't actually cover of the material and labor costs of a single printer. The average cost of a single printer and labor costs is about $700+. We take pride that we are making products of quality yet affordable and easy to use for home consumers. If you want cheap there are other alternatives but "Cheap and Good" rarely make a good combination."
Let's be honest, people. We got nickel and dimmed into a 3D printer kickstarter scam. This happened in the early day of these 3D printer scams. We're not getting our money back, they took it and ran. Take the lesson and never back another 3D printer on kickstarter.
here is an old phone number I reached them at before when I harassed them for a refund I don't know if its still working but here you go. 0116590037085
every one should go leave negative reviews everywhere there selling online.
"Just to clarify things"
I will piss on their graves
Has anyone approached Kickstarter about this? The company didn't dissolve, the product didn't fail. They are simply outright ignoring their obligations to backers. Pretty sure this is against kickstarters terms.
Any update?? It has been 5 months. Let us know your plan.
I made a FB group, would be sweet if you guys joined there so we can better organize ourselves:
"We are not shedding our obligations to you"... oh really....
How's that updated design coming???
I'll piss on their graves.
+1 stop this one !!!
+1. I really want my money back.
+1 for bringing the pain
Who's willing to contribute some funds for class action?
We need a small claims lawyer to fight this case.
Class action sounds good to me, let's do it.
If they were updating us, that would be nice. Not hearing from them for 5 months is not cool. Time for legal action. No communication = legal action
I am here for a class action... Pls there is some layer could help us. Pvt message o a comment here.
I was going to let bygones be bygones, but now there selling them!? They are even donating them!!!! I'm all to help people, but stealing money and lying to people is another! These scumbags are going to get what's coming to them. I'm new to this, but I have plenty of times on my hands so we can start something here. We WILL get our money back or even whatever they have left. Enough is enough!!!!
