Kickstarter: Making the Mafia Look Like Chucky Cheese Since 2009.

I just sent this email to Kickstarter.

Dear Kickstarter. Let’s recap…

I told you that the project was a scam that ripped off thousands of people in my name by taking their money, disappearing forever and forcing me to face everyone. I explained that no backers would ever receive any rewards or product. I asked for the backer list so I could send all of them ‘something’ to try and make this as right as I can.
…You refused to help in any way at all and told me to talk to the person whom you know disappeared forever with the money.

I further explained that none of the backers would ever receive any rewards or product and asked for your help in the form of advice, discussion or somehow removing or altering the scam project page.
…You refused to help in any way at all and told me to talk to the person whom you know disappeared forever with the money.

I sent you a DMCA take down notice, explaining once more and with great care, that no backers would ever be receiving any rewards or product.
…You took the page down and sent a blanket email to every backer, explaining to all of them that they will indeed be receiving their rewards and product. Then you gave all of them a link to a page with my home address on it.

I understand that I’m talking to a business and not a single person, but whoever is reading this right now, please think about this for a moment. You promised over 2000 people that they can expect the non-existent products that they paid for… that have my name on them… and then you gave all of them my home address.

Please stop this. I honestly can’t take anymore.
