It is sad indeed. But as I see it they had very few alternatives after being swindled. Redesign the Pro1(x) using as much as they can of the existing with the remaining money. Await the m

The line is when they take the money to Las Vegas and blow it on hookers and cocaine. And then they realize they need more money, so they delay shipping in order to solicit more funds, so they can pro

I just upgraded to FX Pro1 X  Sapphire blue 😁 So I decided to wait another 8 months, but I think it will be worth in the end. By the way, today it´s 1 year since ordering, it was the Februar

I think the main issue is that while crowdfunding is NOT the same as a purchase, it FEELS like a regular purchase.

The blog post lists some complaints about how IGG tries to make the experience of crowdfunding similar to that of shopping despite attempting to avoid the legal obligations of normal ecommerce sites.

So I'm sure plenty of people who are crowdfunding for the first time are easily swayed into thinking that they are guaranteed to receive a product. Now you can call them naive and foolish, but I don't think it's any different from casinos who use bright lights and alcohol and addictive slot machines to convince people to gamble away their money.

Also some people in the comments mentioned being able to successfully file a chargeback, but that was after the campaign had ended. But Fxtec isn't a scam, and as soon as I have the cash, I'll probably be buying some more Pro1X perks.

I completely agree. I don't think anyone here tries to defend IGG. I think the whole concept of Crowdfunding for perks is a really bad deal for the consumer. It probably should be regulated more.

So please be angry at IGG, but not at fxtec. And do not try to ruin them, call your local politician and complain about crowdfunding or whatever. But don't try to damage a company which is in my opinion in a position, where crowdfunding is not too unethical!
