      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.

      Maybe if enough of us try, this might help

    6. Creator Adam Chapin on October 19

      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

    7. Creator Shawn on October 13

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

      No news :-(

    9. Creator Max Mocchi on September 25

      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.

      They're the ones who ran ZionEyes

    14. Creator Adam Chapin on August 28

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

    15. Creator Adam Chapin on August 28

      343,415$ !!!

    16. Creator Adam Chapin on August 28

      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.

    17. Creator Anthony on August 8

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

    18. Creator Tuxedosam on August 7

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

    19. Creator George Helou on July 30

      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.

    20. Creator Manny S on July 27

      Thanks for nothing you fucking thieves

    21. Creator Eric Cheng on July 2

      To Curt Olski's link, does this mean backers from US can go after the scums of this scam via FTC.

    22. Creator Jim Tucker on June 2

      because of this scam i will never fund anything on kickstarter ever again, refund our fucking money

    23. Creator vinookanth on May 13, 2015

      kickstarter has a share in ZionEyez scam

    27. Creator Ian Crabb on February 20, 2015

      Another Scam.
      I hope you fucks are happy with your life.
      Karma is a bitch and one day mother fucker it WILL kick you straight in the nut sack

      Does anyone live near this pair of wank stains ?

    28. Creator Christopher Neitzert on January 7, 2015

      so i would suggest filing a police report in your area. These guys are never going to give our money back, and police reports do show up on background checks and visa applications. If enough of us file police reports, these guys wont be able to get jobs in the future, or even travel to exotic foreign destinations, much like convicted felons...

    29. Creator Scott Walker on December 9, 2014

      Article brings up a good point: the crowdfunding bubble may burst soon over experiences like ours, and the growing number of incidents like this....

    30. Creator ozymandias (ZionEyez,CGC Scam victim) on December 9, 2014

      Now that you don't respond to messages here, and mail is undeliverable, how are we supposed to contact the creator of this unfinished project?

    31. Creator ozymandias (ZionEyez,CGC Scam victim) on December 1, 2014

      Email to zioneyez is no longer deliverable -- and they have not been responding to messages on kickstarter for over 2 years.

      But doesn't care. They skimmed their portion off this scam.

    32. Creator ozymandias (ZionEyez,CGC Scam victim) on November 4, 2014

      Where are our refunds? I don't think anyone can claim this project is not an abject failure with a straight face.

    33. Creator ozymandias (ZionEyez,CGC Scam victim) on October 15, 2014

      No updates in 2.5 years? Kickstarter, like the honey badger, don't care....

    34. Creator Ryan M on September 28, 2014

      Are these ready yet?

    35. Creator Chip Foley on September 23, 2014

      Really? Still?

    36. Creator ozymandias (ZionEyez,CGC Scam victim) on September 22, 2014

      I see kickstarter re-did their TOS to pretend to try and stop assholes like this from scamming people again.

      Too little, too late.

    37. Creator Christopher Neitzert on September 20, 2014

      I think what we all need to do is simply file a report with our local police for this one, naming all of the principals of this organization as claimants.

    38. Creator Justin Martin on August 2, 2014

      I'm glad these old kickstarters never come down, it's fun going through all the comments and lamenting the moments together.

      The ZionEyes guys suck.

      Just sayin'

    39. Creator Manny S on July 8, 2014

      Where's my T-shirt? Does Zeyez need additional funding to print the t-shirts now too? Why not start another kickstarter?

    40. Creator William Walker on May 30, 2014

      I received the same form letters from the AG. I also received a response from "Kickstarter Legal". I'll go ahead and post the Kickstarter response because I think it's one of the few times Kickstarter has actually responded to any inquiries. Response follows:

      From: Kickstarter Legal []

      Sent: Monday, May 12, 2014 4:58 PM

      To: ATG MI CRC Complaint Processing

      Subject: Attn: Sandra Hatcher Re: File # 447821

      Dear Ms. Hatcher,

      Thanks very much for forwarding this complaint to us. We hope this response helps you and Mr. Walker better understand how Kickstarter works.

      Kickstarter is a platform where one party, the Creator, runs a campaign to raise money from other parties, the Backers, to fund a creative project. The filmmakers, musicians, artists, and designers on Kickstarter have complete control over and responsibility for their projects. Kickstarter is a platform and a resource. Kickstarter is not involved in the development of the projects themselves.

      When users back a project, they enter into an agreement with the project creator, as described in our terms of use. Kickstarter is not a party to that agreement between the Backer and Project Creator. All dealings are solely between users.

      Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any further questions.

      For those of you who feel like you're getting a little tired of all this, I'd like to point out that we're just getting started. We had to sit back and give them plenty of time to fail. You'll notice that the B.S. from Brent Buroff (several posts below) is the first thing posted on these Kickstarter pages that is actually signed by a person. Of course, we had to post it but.... Up till now it's always been "The Team". That was an early on effort to escape culpability, to absolve themselves personally of any responsibility on their part for the failure to deliver as promised. They went into this thing knowing it was not going anywhere. One of the clues is the pathetic technical support they gave their engineering "department" AKA Joe Taylor. When they should have been at the point of packaging up glasses for delivery in December, Joe was showing off a pathetic piece or crap that couldn't even fold. No sign of software. If only the cops still had racket & bunco squads....they'd snap to what's going on in a flat second. The AG needs to be led like a blind man. But, of course, he's a lawyer, not a cop.

    41. Creator David Elliott on May 27, 2014

      The article specifies that he was not a backer, but he pre-ordered through the web site.

    42. Creator Shao on May 27, 2014

      Anybody here received a refund?:
      It was posted on March 6, 2014.

      It was mentioned on March 6 by Jeff Kang in the comments section here:

      FYI, it's all I know, I received nothing and know nothing, I happen to come across Jeff Kang's comment just now.

    43. Creator William Walker on May 26, 2014

      This is not a consumer issue. It's a legal issue. It's fraud and conspiracy to defraud. We've been hanging on long enough to see what's going on. What's difficult is to get the AG's office to take a good look at it. I sent a load of info to the AG's office. He passed it along to the black hole. I think I'll try the Seattle PI. After all, they printed a glowing article about how Zioneyez was going to change the world. Maybe we can get them to update their report. The AG probably sees this as "Oh God! More work" whereas the newspaper may see it as "Hey! Here's an interesting story and most of the info has already been collected for us." STILL COMIN' ATCHA CARLOS!!! GET YOUR LIES STRAIGHT.

    44. Creator pol on May 26, 2014

      Yes, yes... I submitted my complain to AG about more than a yeah ago and got the very same answer.
