This is directed towards Project Creators/Managers. While this may seem like an attempt to bad-mouth a person, we have no intentions of doing so and are only trying to help you out and prevent any problems down the road.

A particular backer by the name of Encik Farhan pledged high amounts to projects only to have the payment declined. In worse cases, the payments were even disputed months after the funds have been used, making project creators refund money that has already been used for their projects!

Many of the project creators have come together and we've learned a lot from each other, and we seem to have the the same or similar problems. As this is a group problem, I've created this forum for those affected to discuss/share their experiences and to keep others in the loop.

If you have been affected, or even if you haven't been yet, please post below. Anything would help. I suggest we all get together and contact Amazon and/or Kickstarter and demand for them to reveal the true identity of this individual(who has apparently gone with different names/locations).

If this problem persists, I may even go to the extreme and suggest taking matters to the Interpol, since this has become an International crime.

Thank you, and I wish you all the best with your projects.

Note to Forum Mod: I kindly ask that you do not delete this post or please redirect it to the proper place as it has become a big problem and needs to be resolved right away. I think this information can also help future project creators who may run into this individual down the road.

Good to keep in mind, thanks.
