Right now there is a FAKE Kickstarter campaign that ripped me off. Out of nowhere I decided to google my product and it came up. All of a sudden I see a campaign under Kickstarter when mine is under Indiegogo.
Kickstarter didn't do their due diligence and check and just posted whatever was sent to them by these thieves and it's all my IP and everything. So someone copied and pasted my ENTIRE Indiegogo campaign and launched under Kickstarter and raised about$17k. If Kickstarter did their research they would have seen that there is already an account with Indiegogo and that I am the owner of Pluck N' File…if you google Pluck N' File it is clear that I am the owner and Kickstarter would have known not to launch. Funny thing is last year I tried to launch through KS with the first version of my product and they denied me! so I have the emails saved and showed them with my attorney copied, how can you deny me the REAL owner last year and now you approve a FAKE with my updated version without first verifying everything? I own ALL the IP. They have the account still up showing "suspended" but it isn't my account it is the FAKE account. But the people who go to Kickstarter don't know that….they think it is really Pluck N' File and that makes me look so bad. That makes my brand look bad when it isn't even me, plus whoever donated to the KS campaign will not get the product because those people cannot fulfill the orders since it was a scam., so again how does that make me look? What protection do people like me have then from poachers of crowdfunding campaigns if the platforms like KS are not doing their due diligence. They dropped the ball big time and i am suing them. The campaign is still up and needs to be taken down off the site.
The people who posted the fake account were trying to raise the funds to take and run and obviously cannot fulfill orders. Horrible people.
Has anyone else gone through this?
