We recently brought you the story of the creator of the Eventorbot, a 3d printer that raised big money on Kickstarter. The creator has had a lot of trouble delivering on rewards.
A comment posted to an August backer update may be telling for project creator Duy Dang and rewards-based crowdfunding as a means of capital formation.
I have received word from a credible source, that the Attorney General may be taking an active interest in this. This is good news for us. We all should file our own complaints with the Illinois Attorney General as soon as possible. This does have to be printed and sent via snail mail, but if the Attorney General does prosecute Duy, it will be well worth it.
Here is a link to the official Illinois Attorney General complaint pagehttp://www.illinoisattorneygeneral.gov/consumers/filecomplaint.html
Also another backer has taken the time to write out very detailed instructions, which can assist you with locating your documentation, filling out the forms, and has a complaint summary which you can use or modify if you need help writing the summary. The packet can be downloaded herehttps://www.dropbox.com/s/n3r1pwqw3ezxa2g/Eventorbot_complaint_packet.zip
Spread the word! Share this in the forums, and other places! Make sure everyone who was ripped off, mislead, hasn’t received their printer, received a broken or incomplete printer, etc sees this and is able to file their complaint.
Once you have filed your complaint please send me an e-mail to let me know, so I can keep a tally. My email is *********** at yahoo.
We’ve reached out to the office of Attorney General Lisa Madigan and will report back if and when we receive any statement.
