    Oops! Nice to know there is a recourse for those who act in good faith and are later bilked.

    Interesting

    I had never even heard of kickstarted until I read about it here at Family

    a lot of backers have found that their cc companies will be rather reluctant to refund as more than 6 months have past, and some have already been denied.

    Saw the same post on the ftc.gov site, says they will be investigating other complaints...so best to file them early...Probably will get busy quick.

    Well I have only supported on project and it was a token support to give someone here a little encouragement. So I consider ita cheap lesson.
    Sounds as if the settlement doesn't have any teeth. Should be treated more like theift. It is being treated more like a bad debt.

    I've backed around 6 projects on KS. A couple of electronic gadgets, and a few where bands were getting the funds together to put together vinyl records. I've been quite pleased that all the ones I backed (that got funded) were successful.

    Just wanted to provide a positive data point here so people don't think of kickstarter as a 'sketchy' thing. There are a lot of people that use it to raise capital to produce goods that are successful.

    I have to agree with Brent, all but one KS of the 6 I've done have been positive experiences. The one bad experience isn't going to stop me from using it.

    I have done one KS project (ships 5/2016). I totally went in with planning to have nothing to show for my $100 investment. But if it pays off I will own 2, 9$ computers (plus all accessories) that I can sell on eBay because they will be novelty antiques someday. Going in with eyes wide open and hoping for the best. If I lose $100...oh well...it's like a lottery ticket. Gives you time to dream.
