      Any way to join the class action suit still?

      Frustrated with the vetting process here.
      Given how this panned out, am discouraged to back any future projects.

      Well, I wasted more money on beer and women.
      In the end it all goes down and comes back up the same poophole.
      It's only money.

      Thank you for following up with us about the status of this project. I’m sorry you’ve been experiencing these issues with communication, and that you're frustrated by our policies. We've reached out to the creator a number of times with reminders of their obligations to their backer community, and have forwarded along your concerns and those of your fellow backers. While we're disheartened that they have not yet updated backers on the status of their project, we're unable to force them to do so — it's the creator's responsibility to communicate and complete the project as promised.

      Backing a project on Kickstarter is an expression of trust and can help lead to the creation of new and exciting things. But it’s important to remember that sometimes complications arise that might prevent a project from unfolding as planned — or from happening at all. This certainly isn’t ideal, but we hope that creators and backers will try to communicate with each other through these developments.

      Although we are unable to offer refunds, we are constantly working to improve the vetting process for creators and thank you for sharing your experience. Supporting creators as they work to bring projects to life isn’t anything like shopping in a store, and it’s anything but failproof. In fact, it’s not intended to be — giving creators room to try out their new ideas is a big part of why we love what we do. Most of the time, creators both communicate and deliver, and backers have good experiences; what you’ve gone through is certainly the exception, not the rule. In the meantime, I will be sure to share your feedback with the rest of the team here. We really hope that — when you’re ready — you’ll be able to find projects and creators that inspire confidence and enthusiasm in you again.

      Hi Adam,

      Thanks for writing in, and sorry to hear that backing this project has become such a frustrating experience for you. As the creators and stewards of Kickstarter, we hate more than anything when a project doesn't come to fruition. Allowing creators to take risks and attempt to bring something new to life is the backbone of what we do. However, we also understand that there is an inherent level of risk in any creation process.

      Kickstarter is built around minimizing that risk through all-or-nothing funding, which allows the collective voice of the people to decide which projects reach their goal. On our end, we review projects, uphold our rules, practice careful governance, and use anti-fraud filtering. The foundation of the entire system, however, is the collective wisdom of the people who back projects.

      Still, despite a creator's best efforts, some projects won't always come together as planned. In these situations we make ourselves available to creators to help however we can, and we encourage them to be as open as possible with their backers about the obstacles they face. In the case of the ZionEyez project in particular, we've reached out to the creators a number of times. But no matter our efforts, projects will sometimes fail to come together as planned and backers will sometimes be disappointed in outcomes. We strive to constantly learn from this, and to make sure that expectations are appropriately set for backers (like on our Trust & Safety page).

      If you have feedback on ways that we can improve this experience and more appropriately set expectations, please let us know. It’s our mission to make sure that Kickstarter is a place where folks can launch and support projects with confidence and excitement.

      Tried to contact Amazon payments, but as it's more than 105 days after the transaction, they won't even accept the complaint.

      Makes me think that in order to complete a scam through Amazon payments, always promise delivery more than 105 days past the payment date.

    18. Adam Chapin on

      Maybe if enough of us try, this might help

    19. Adam Chapin on

      So I hear something about if you don't have a functioning prototype you cant raise money on kickstarter, I will get my money back someday that is for sure

    20. Shawn on

      Seems like we should file a breach of contract lawsuit and at least make these guys have to file bankruptcy.

      There was a forum called ZionKick. It had profiles of most of the people involved with ZionEyez. Is that still around?

      Restitution for Washington backers, civil penalties

      SEATTLE — Attorney General Bob Ferguson today announced the successful conclusion of the first enforcement action in the nation against a crowdfunded project that didn’t follow through on its promise to backers.

      King County Superior Court Commissioner Henry Judson ordered Edward J. Polchlopek III, otherwise known as Ed Nash, and his company, Altius Management, to pay $54,851 as a result of the 2012 “Asylum Playing Cards” Kickstarter campaign.

      The court ordered a total of $668 in restitution for the 31 Washington state backers, $31,000 in civil penalties for violating the state Consumer Protection Act ($1,000 per violation), and $23,183 to cover the costs and fees involved in bringing the case.

      “Washington state will not tolerate crowdfunding theft,” said Ferguson. “If you accept money from consumers, and don’t follow through on your obligations, my office will hold you accountable.”

      Crowdfunding can be a positive way to secure financing for initiatives directly from a diverse pool of backers who generally provide small amounts of financial support. Crowdfunding campaigns have supported a broad range of initiatives from movie-making to high-tech gadgets to charitable giving.

      In 2012, the Asylum Playing Cards campaign raised $25,146 from 810 backers, including 31 from Washington state. Polchlopek claimed his company would print and market a deck of cards and other items featuring artwork created by a Serbian artist.

      Project backers were promised the playing cards and other rewards with an estimated delivery date of December 2012. The project was not completed and none of the backers received any of the promised items or any refunds. Additionally, the company has not communicated with its backers since July 2013.

      Kickstarter’s terms of use make clear that companies are legally obligated to fulfill the promised rewards or provide consumer refunds. On the website it states: “When a project is successfully funded, the creator must complete the project and fulfill each reward. Once a creator has done so, they’ve satisfied their obligation to their backers.”

      The Attorney General’s Office filed its first-of-its-kind lawsuit April 30, 2014.

      The AGO filed this lawsuit on behalf of Washington state consumers under the state Consumer Protection Act. Affected consumers from other states are encouraged to file a complaint with their state attorney general to seek restitution.


      The Office of the Attorney General is the chief legal office for the state of Washington with attorneys and staff in 27 divisions across the state providing legal services to roughly 200 state agencies, boards and commissions. Attorney General Bob Ferguson is working hard to protect consumers and seniors against fraud, keep our communities safe, protect our environment and stand up for our veterans. Visit to learn more.

    24. Marty C. on -- 09/11/2015 -- Time to litigate folks.

      Now that we have a precedent (read article at link above) it's time to start gathering everyone's info getting organized to we can pursue litigation. These guys will be on the hook for $343,415 plus interest and court penalties.

      They're the ones who ran ZionEyes

    26. Adam Chapin on

      Can we start a Kickstarter to get our money back? that would be priceless!

    27. Adam Chapin on

      I just have to say if the money was somehow thrown away do to bad investment into the development over seas that's one thing, but if these guys spent on dime of the 343,415$ on themselves we will find out and get every cent plus interest, statue of limitations doesn't apply and all we have to do is follow the paper work. Everything is on file through Kickstarter, shits about to hit the fan.

    28. Anthony

      It is criminal - who are the people behind this and where in the world might they be? I wonder...

    29. Sam on

      Any updates?? Anyone get refunded?? Did they get these guys??

    30. George Helou on

      Wow, they only needed 55K and received $343,415 and delivered nothing.

      what a scam and Kickstarter should have refunded a high% of the funds minus the 55K captial loss.
