Have a question?
Pulled this from the one article. I would recommend everyone do this, might not get much but it all adds up.
Consumers who file complaints with the Bureau of Consumer Protection before June 2, 2017 will be considered for inclusion in the final restitution to be paid by Radiate. The consent petition for final decree in the case has been approved in Chester County Common Pleas Court. To file a complaint with the Bureau of Consumer Protection before June 2nd, visit www.attorneygeneral.gov or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Consumers can also call 1-800-441-2555 to request a complaint form be mailed to them.
Also, once this month goes by, and I assume they mean May, we have to be diligent in contacting the Attorney General's office when Kenny does not deliver the shirts. If they hold him in contempt of court, it is not a good thing. We might finally see some action.
Jean C. Gorrin: Well, don't contact the FTC, contact the attorney general email@example.com as they are the ones to press charges against Kenny
They will send you a five pages form to fill, and will include you to the list of scam victims that Kenny has to pay to (unless he starts fulfilling in the VERY near future). However you need to do it by June 2.
You can also download that form from my dropbox.
This is the email I got from the FTC which is utter bullshit:
Thank you for contacting the Federal Trade Commission. We have reviewed your complaint and have determined that the following information may assist you.
10 Ways to Avoid Fraud - http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0060-10-ways-avoid-fraud
Indeed, and the Attorney will basically push him for the delivery. It will be also in best Kenny's interests, as rather then giving a refund, he could buy the cheapest chinese shit and deliver it. Alternatively bankruptcy, property confiscation, etc. - Given how stupid Kenny is, this is a very possible course of actions.
Anyhow, the more people communicate with the Attorney General, the more pressure will be put on Kenny.
This action against RA and Kenny is going to continue sadly, simply based on this provision in the settlement: "Under the settlement announced by Attorney General Shapiro, Radiate is required to deliver the shirts this month to approximately 1,600 consumers who paid for shirts and have not yet received them."
Three reasons why it's extremely unlikey he will be able to meet this requirement: 1.) Kenny has consistently demonstrated over the course of four years he cannot deliver shirts en-masse on a deadline. 2.) It's highly doubtful he has inventory to complete all of the orders. 3.) It's even more highly doubtful, bordering on certainty, that he doesn't have the money to pay the shipping costs on these outstand orders even if by some miracle he does have the full inventory in-stock and ready to go.
Yea saw the article we have until June 2 I believe. I already put myself on the list. I want my money back screw these worthless shirts.
Some more links:
For those who haven't heard about it - READ THIS!
I'm sure Kenny doesn't want you to know about it.
Suit settled over Pa. firm's color-changing T-shirt launched on Kickstarter.
He logs in and just laughs at all the suckers he scammed off. Can't believe he's selling them on Amazon and most of the backers haven't even gotten anything yet. What a douche bag.
Kenny checked in April 16th (but as usual left no comment). Guessing his annual Easter visit to church raised his guilt demon up....or maybe he was drunk and looking for a laugh from all the Cristal he's been drinking with our money.
The comments section that keeps on giving. I gave up on my shirts ages ago but still come here to see everyone else's response.
Kenny is a liar and a thief. Steals from 8,566 people with no repercussions and nothing to show for it. Something needs to be done
I received a shirt I ordered from the website for a friend immediately after the campaign ended, however I never received my original reward from Kickstarter nor the "special" shirt that was added after the delays. Almost a year ago there was an update for International Backers yet nothing arrived.
Is there any intention in actually shipping our rewards?
Still waiting on mine too. How long has it been, 6 years?
Dont sweat it... got mine and it essentially becomes a grey compression shirt after 3 uses
I'm an original backer and still watch....just in case this EVER makes it to me
So it is past March now I still have no shooting sleeve and in a month am moving to another state. I feel that most of this will never get done as Kenny appears to be able to sell to new suckers and just plain avoid us.
Kevin your thoughts on another "missed" deadline since you may be the only person who has spoke to him.
The reviews on Amazon say it all! Keep up all the negative reviews! Maybe if Kenny did the right thing and send all the KS backers what he was supposed to deliver, he would be doing well with positive reviews from all of his original backers and being a real successful business man instead of a scammer!!!
Selling the shirts WE ALREADY PAID FOR on amazon?? This guy needs some serious karma to come his way. I am disgusted with how vile of a human being Kenny is. How can you sleep at night you piece of shit
Kenny just confirms what we already know, he could care less about his backers. Here are the links to the amazon links, I am leaving a review, I suggest everyone else should as well.
Did you guys know that they sell the shirt at Amazon.com. Are you kidding me?
Hey guys, is there a petition I can sign for class action against Kenny. Is there a link?
Sit here talking doesn't really do anything.
I STILL got nothing. Is this really the best way to do business? Please send me my shirts!
http://www.familytreenow.com/ here ya go if you'd like to get Kenny's info and contact him. #StillwaitingforRadiateShirts
When I can really get my shirt?????????????????????
Have also not received anything as of yet, nor likely ever will. I bought a hoodie and a spacesuit-X AS WELL as an extra ten dollar shirt they advertised in, I think, late 2016. I hate to say it, but I am still hopeful. Sadly, I don't think we will ever receive our orders.
Still received zilch, almost 4 years later.
i bought into these shirts back in august of 2013,i've received 1 shirt of my 6 in almost 4yrs.,piece of shit company!!!!!!!!!!!!
Still hoping to some day see what I paid for
@Kevin Mitchell Thank you for sharing an update. Small things like that go a long way.
@Michael Andrieu I agree "I would also prefer to be an optimist instead of a cynic, but in this case I think the backers are just being realists"
I STILL got nothing. I keep Sending you messages, and you keep not responding. is this really the best way to do business?
I still haven't received my shooting sleeve, it's only been 4 years now lol. Amazing how this guy got away with it.
FRAUD it is amazing kickstart allows this garbage company to still be on here. This company is the reason I will never buy from kickstart again
February 28th 2017 and Kenny CROOKett logs in but leaves no communication....standard behaviour from our least favorite Wantrepeneur.
My pledge dates all the way back to 2013...hmmm..never saw anything...was this just a donation...tons of money was raised...
Managed to have Kenny added as a friend on his personal Facebook. He seems to pay no mind to radiate athletics on his personal posts. Although his background image is himself posing with a radiate shirt on, other than that he seems to be enjoying our money that he fraudulently acquired. I will keep an eye on his posts and inform anyone of anything suspicious or progressive toward this project.
I still haven't received my shirts, is there something that I can fill out to get them sent? I see some have gotten their order.
@stuefi Meta Wear seems to only be related to Radiate in that Radiate is threatening legal action against Meta Wear for having a similar product.
See my January 25th post for more details, plus my full review on the Meta Wear shirt I got.
Also, if you have questions, Meta Wear usually answers really quickly if you send him a facebook message. Like, minutes. Seems like a totally legit dude.
Hey guys, we got rob, should we look for lawyer? How can we take legal action against him?
All I know is this is ridiculous. Like Koleah I went ahead and backed the Meta-Wear Project. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1224084003/meta-wear-llc-active-athletic-sports-wear
I have asked the creator several questions and he has always responded promptly. Radiate had so much potential and squandered it all.
Even if he does have problems with the technology, this project is now so overdue he is not compelled to deliver.
This guy is an absolute fucking cunt!!!
refund would be nice...oh, and "meta wear" reminds me a lot of the radiate athletics campaign - does look "special". this time no nasa ;)...i wonder if its related to kenny...your thoughts?
Refund! This is such a joke!
Wow, Kenny is threatening legal action, how incredibly low of him. Perhaps this is just another attempt to get money out of this farce he created. https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php…
I particularly enjoyed the claim of the successful kickstarter campaign, successful for Kenny, not so much for his backers. It's really sad to see that he makes an effort of threatening legal action, yet still keeps all his backers in the dark.
After the initial campaign and few shirts ever shipping, promises of 2.0, free shirts that also never shipped (with promise of shipping refund), the lies keep coming, and he is worried about somebody else doing it right.
What a sad, sad state of affairs, not surprised he has a law firm representing him, he probably needed them to keep him out of jail after failing so badly to send out what is still owed. I still can't believe he's not locked up yet.
Kenny, please, as requested numerous times before, be honest about what's happening, stop the lies so we can all move on, including you. That way you can stop lying to us, but more importantly to those who are close to you who are obviously being kept in the dark as much as us. The whole reason you are not being honest on here, is so they don't find out how badly you've failed.
Perhaps they shouldn't worry too much. The 24 hours deadline will become 2 more weeks, then 4 more years.
26th Jan '17 and it's now 3 days on the bounce for Kenny CROOKett logging in ( but no comment, natch). Come on, Kenny,I'm eager for the next chapter in this farce of a story!
Re The legal threat in the comment below - I wonder if Meta-Wear is more, or less, damaging to Radiate's "brand" than Kenny CROOKett himself?
