      Why hasn't Kickstarter responded to this situation to facilitate a resolution?

    2. Creator Phil S on October 7

      there IS an email for this "Alex" person.
      he IS associated with the project ( even has it in HIS profile )

      perhaps someone with a legal connection could email him.

      really disappointed in how this project has turned out... taken my money and run

    4. Creator Fuzzy Puffin on September 12

      Joe Adams is an impossible name to google, so I found this:


      What's funny is that if you google his name you get a (now defunct) link to a session he apparently was in entitled "building a better business through crowdfunding" at a design conference.

    5. Creator Raymond L on August 23

      I suppose it's Graduate Armstrong State University, not Georgia Tech. More misdirection from his profile, lol.

    6. Creator Raymond L on August 23

      The account hasn't been logged in in over a year. I think contacting Georgia Tech may be in order to inform them that one of their (former?) students has scammed 389 people out of their money. I doubt they would want that type of association. Does anyone here know how to go about contacting his school regarding this matter?

    7. Creator J. J. Gunnell on August 10

      Do we need to start filing lawsuits and getting the FTC involved ? This seems like fraud, and there is no courtesy of even keeping the backers updated.

    8. Creator Phil S on July 7…

      Report this project here. This seems like more of an official one than the google form we all did earlier

    9. Creator Fuzzy Puffin on June 29

      All the websites listed in Joe's profile are dead...

    10. Creator Phil S on May 11, 2015

      Hey joe!
      Do you have plans to support the iPhone 6 / 6+ or apple watch?

    11. Creator l.s. on April 13, 2015

      After no updates or communication in more than 18 months, I understand that ZoPro is defunct, as there were numerous unexpected and complex financial, design, and manufacturing setbacks. I have made multiple requests via comments and KS message to Joe Adams for a refund. In terms of a refund, it is only appropriate for Joe Adams / ZoPro to respond to and refund its loyal backers. It is an ethical breach, and I encourage an appropriate refund strategy that complies with the polices as defined by KS without further delay. I believe it has been a learning opportunity for all involved (designers and backers), however, resolution is needed.

      I have also submitted the form passed along by others in the message thread:

    12. Creator Raymond L on March 14, 2015

      Oh Mr. Adams... Are you still avoiding us?

    13. Creator Darryl Cheung on January 26, 2015

      Eastpointvet - yup, only thing I've never received either ...

      I hadn't checked the comments for a while but I filled in the form too, hopefully we'll all see something from this, and thanks for the link Marika!

    14. Creator Eastpointvet on January 21, 2015

      this is the only thing i have never received on kickstarter

    15. Creator Chris Goguelin on January 14, 2015

      I want a refund, do we have to start suing for our refunds?

    16. Creator Gary Minato on December 7, 2014

      Funding goal reached two years ago today - happy anniversary everyone :-(

    17. Creator Adam Hiscox on October 27, 2014

      I would suggest everyone fill out the form at the link below and voice your opinion. We all spent a good deal of money on a product that we will not be receiving, which equals fraud.

      Joe, it's sad that you weren't able to get your dream off the ground (although it's odd you were able to get another project done right after this -- presumably using ZoPro funds). Be straight and tell people you failed. Be a man.

    18. Creator Marika Zep on October 22, 2014

      I second that. I'd be happy if Joe Adams was permanently banned from KickStarter. Also filled in the form.

    19. Creator Phil S on October 21, 2014

      @Fuzzy Puffin

      Thank you I have also filled out this form.

    20. Creator Fuzzy Puffin on October 15, 2014

      It appears he hasn't even been online since Early August. I've filled out this Kickstarter form to report the project, though I doubt anything will come of it:

    21. Creator Derek on October 14, 2014

      So, can I have my money back?

    22. Creator Bryan on October 11, 2014

      Joe your a joke, not only did you lose all of our money but you now don't even have the courage to reply to us. Your a terrible business man as well as a terrible person. Thanks for wasting years of our time

    23. Creator TheEndless on September 29, 2014

      Nearly two years and two (three, if you count the 6 plus) phone revisions, and still nothing. Could we at least get the extras like the tripod and lens kits that were part of our packages?

    24. Creator Fuzzy Puffin on September 25, 2014

      Darryl, I think the real reason is that he used up all the money in manufacturing. The only way we're getting a refund is if he gets sued.

    25. Creator Darryl Cheung on September 22, 2014

      I tried asking for a refund at least a year ago now, but Joe stated that it would be unfair to the other backers if I got a refund since he was still (I don't know how) optimistic that the ZoPro would be shipped at some point.

      What are you waiting for now Joe? The release of the iPhone 7???

      Do the right thing and refund the funds from all 389 backers ...

      Kickstarter, can you please make this scam artist refund our money with your new terms and conditions?

    26. Creator Gary Minato on September 17, 2014

      I'm thinking about starting a Kickstarter project to help with fitting the iPhone 6 into the iPhone 5 sized ZOpro: Incredibly Thin Case-Integrated Charging case.

      I'm having difficulty deciding whether to produce some kind of tool that will cut the iPhone 6 down to size so it fits in the case, or a tool that will stretch the ZOpro: Incredibly Thin Case-Integrated Charging case so it can fit the iPhone 6.

    27. Creator Steven Houston on September 17, 2014

      Before I would have argued other way But... This is a TOTAL SCAM!! NO UPDATES, NO INFORMATION, NO COMPLETION!! Please if you even want to support the little faith that is still "maybe" left in any of us, let us know what is going on!!

    28. Creator Bryan on September 16, 2014

      Total scam

    29. Creator Steven Houston on September 13, 2014

      This is absolutely ridiculous. I have been patient and understanding, but this has gone to far. Last response I saw was from June!!! Please tell us what is going on!

    30. Creator Phil S on September 12, 2014

      Hey joe!
      Did you order a iPhone 6 or 6+ ?

    31. Creator Matthew Kelly on September 11, 2014

      Joe somehow had my post removed the popular site The project needed to be posted on the site to make everyone aware it failed and there is still no action after almost 2 years.

    32. Creator Phil S on September 9, 2014

      Did you watch the event joe?

    33. Creator Gary Minato on September 8, 2014

      Life Spot - KS project is issuing a refund since they will not be able to deliver the product;

    34. Creator Steven Houston on September 5, 2014

      iPhone 6 in less than a week....... What are you doing about moving this project forward? It's crazy to think this was supposed to be ready for when the new iPhone 5 came out....

    35. Creator Bryan on September 4, 2014

      We deserve answers, what's the deal joe?

    36. Creator Mario Frazzetto on September 1, 2014

      Clearly Joe Adams is a gutless wonder.

    37. Creator Mario Frazzetto on September 1, 2014

      I DEMAND my money back!!!

    38. Creator JayC on August 26, 2014

      From Kickstarter FAQ:

      Is a creator legally obligated to fulfill the promises of their project?

      Yes. Kickstarter's Terms of Use require creators to fulfill all rewards of their project or refund any backer whose reward they do not or cannot fulfill. (This is what creators see before they launch.) This information can serve as a basis for legal recourse if a creator doesn't fulfill their promises. We hope that backers will consider using this provision only in cases where they feel that a creator has not made a good faith effort to complete the project and fulfill.

    39. Creator l.s. on August 17, 2014

      After two years of waiting, it's time to refund ZOpro backers.

    40. Creator Fuzzy Puffin on August 15, 2014

      @Raymond it would have to be through your credit card company, on Amazon Payments it says you have to file a dispute within 30 days of payment.

    41. Creator Raymond L on August 15, 2014

      Looks like backers might as well start sending fraud claims with Amazon Payments and their respective credit cards. If nothing else, we would either get our money back, or end up pestering him enough to get some sort of response. This is getting to "Founders" level of disappointment.

    42. Creator Rowan Warren Reynolds on August 13, 2014

      No update in 10 months and radio silence to any comments or questions on here!

      Very poor customer service and very little compassion or consideration for any of the packers who supported you.

      You'll never succeed if this is your work ethic!

    43. Creator Brad Dancer on July 28, 2014

      Sorry, sounds like you need to take a loan out to refund. You may not be in a position - but according to Kickstarter, if you cannot fulfill, you need to refund. What about those of us that gave you the money and trusted in you?- heading your way to a bit of a lawsuit if you don't figure this out.

    44. Creator Kai on July 19, 2014

      Renamed to 'Project Joke' due to a lack of updates, product or general respect for backers.

    45. Creator Raymond L on July 18, 2014

      So... Are we going to have to sue you to get an update? How about providing us with some exact numbers to give your backers some transparency on why you are so behind and on what still needs to be done? How much money do you still need? What do you need to get done? How many XiStera's do you need to distribute in order have enough funds to complete the ZOpro project? Are the ZOpro's ready and just waiting for distribution funds? Are the ZOpro's even made yet? What are you going to do if the iPhone 6 is released and neither the ZOpro, nor the XiStera fit it?

      With all due respect, your "not posting and update because there is nothing to update" philosophy is full of crap and just serves to anger us backers even more. At this point, you might as well sell more XiStera products to generate enough cash to repay all the ZOpro backers you have been teasing for the past two years.

    46. Creator l.s. on July 15, 2014

      It's time to refund all the backers since you are unable to deliver the promised product.

    47. Creator Joe Adams on June 18, 2014

      Yes, its been really frustrating that we don't have anything to update. We have shipped many XiStera's to backers who have give up on us as far as ZOpro is concerned. From our stand point we cannot give up on the project even though we are passing the product cycle. Since we were well short on funds to complete the project we obviously are in no position to refund. Distribution to our other product is key to getting the funds to complete the project and we have had some delays there. We will get something done here and as soon as we have concrete plans everyone will get an update. Joe

    48. Creator Phil S on June 18, 2014

      We've seen 2 updates since update #14 which happened a year ago.
