iFind Alleged Scam raised $500k and Still Funding!

I have been watching the campaign for iFind for a while now and I have read a lot of comments. I have been reluctant to write a post for iFind because of what I have been reading on their comments section. 
I have been part of a group of people who exposed a few kickstarter campaigns lately( this is getting a bit disconcerting that kickstarter is not looking at backer comments or support emails), to name a few Mblok(I was a backer at one of the higher levels and thanks to the comments of other backers we proved that majority of their campaign was a lie), Wi-Stick turned out to be another scam( the person was going to purchase something that is in production already and spin it as his creation), and USB Charger Powered By Your Household Water Supply ( if you look at the comments I have posted the two most important parts of their product are mass produced/made by others( when they claim that they created them)). 

I have been burned by kickstarter campaigns before the most notable three are Spike( a keyboard case for the iPhone 4), mPrinter( a portable thermal printer), and my biggest loss to date Radiate Athletics( I had pledged for big package, and I haven't received anything!). Despite these major scams I have remained a backer on kickstarter since 2010. For every scam there are thousands of real projects, you just have to read a lot of the comments for every project before you pledge and research a bit( google is your friend). 

If anyone who reads this has backed iFind( or should I say iScammed) please either unpledge or lower it to just $1 so that you can still comment on their page. If it is true and they can produce this product, you won't loose much purchasing them after the campaign is over(miracles are possible).

If you decide to back them, please leave a comment on their campaigns comment page that you found their project through IamABacker.com , Thank you.

  1. Don't forget about Hey Joe Coffee Mug (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/163685099/hey-joe-coffee-mug-brew-joe-on-the-go). Funded in July 2014. Backers are still awaiting product. It's a shame how some campaigns have taken advantage of crowdfunding.
