Stay away

Aug 23, 2017 by Rolf

I supported 9 campaigns. 3 of them did not fulfill the specs. 1 did never deliver. 1 is 18 month behind schedule and there is still no sign of a firm delivery date. Indiegogo does not care a straw about its users. All in all I have thrown a few hundred dollars down the drain. Never again! Stay away from this organisation unless you want to loose money.

Failure to fulfill committment

Aug 01, 2017 by Alexis

April 3, 2017 I placed an order for two evalpolar units with a guaranteed ship date of June 2017. Since mid-June I have attempted to contact Evapolar. Mid-July I posted negative feedback on the company and eventually received communication from Evapolar stating that they did not have my contact information or my purchase information and shipping address. I sent Evapolar the information they stated they did NOT have. I received an email from Darya Wheeler (Support) that the items will ship soon. After not receiving the items, I sent Darya Wheeler additional emails in which she stated they were "backed up" but the items will ship soon and she will send me the tracking information by the 27th of July. After subsequent emails, Darya responded the items will ship on 31 July 2017 and Darya will send me the tracking information. I sent emails requesting the tracking information on 31 July as well as 1 August. At this point I don't want the items, I just want my money back. This is a failure to fulfill a commitment by Idiegogo and Evapolar.

Indiegogo has ye to pay out for successfully funded campaign

Jul 06, 2017 by David

Dear campaigners,

You will read many horrible reviews here of not having received a PERK you paid for. That is the responsibility of the campaigner to send and deliver, not Indiegogo's. It is Indiegogo responsibility to pay out if the campaign has reached its goal and more than that 14 days after the end of the campaign. The campaign of my client Hypar Kayak ended on May 2oth. Funds were due o June 6th. Still no funds received, no explanation whatsoever This terruble because we are already producing the Hypar Kayaks and now need to tell our suppliers that we don't have the money to pay them for the materials.
We didn't use paypal due to the bad publicity and warnings received about them holding on to the money due to the high risk of crowdfunding and waiting for all perks to be delivered.
We do sincerely hope that IGG is a serious and legitimate business, but we are taking legal action now, because we need that money to deliver our Hypar Kayaks...

Total scam

Jul 02, 2017 by Peter Gliddon

This organisation, and I use that term very loosely, seems to be a vehicle for the professional scammer. I made the mistake of contributing to three campaigns, after a minimum of a year on each I have received nothing. Indiegogo have no accountability, offer zero support, and that's if you can actually work your way through the minefield to contact them.
Yes I feel stupid so don't follow me, avoid them like the plague. Minus stars should be an option.

Indiegogo don't care

Jun 14, 2017 by Ryan

Paid $300 for a perk. Never arrived. No comms from campaigner. Indiegogo don't care. Indiegogo is just one massive scam. Any one can set up a campaign, promise anything, deliver nothing, and keep all the money. Indiegogo will take their cut and don't give a shit about what's happened. They wont help to recover funds. There's seems to be no legal recourse either. STAY WELL CLEAR. ZERO STARS.

Funds issue

Jun 12, 2017 by Amber

I have a campaign on Generosity by Indigogo and they won;t release funds. They email me once a week saying my account info isn't correct, and for me to fix it. I have done this at least 4 times and I am sure there is not an issue with my account, they are holding the money donated. I have tried to call and it loops back to the website, and the website is one big loop with no answers or real information. Watch out! It is a scam for both campaigners and donators!!

Beware! Indiegogo Ponzi scheme

Jun 06, 2017 by David

Indiegogo is a Ponzi scheme. Fancy Facebook ads for Smove. Collect buyers $$millions as a "donation." Products never delivered. Refunds impossible. Zero customer service. Impossible to contact. Worthless.


Jun 06, 2017 by George

I'm still asking the question if anybody has received a delivery upon funding for a product?

I haven't and this "crowdsourcing" might just be somewhat of a fraud? So if anybody has received delivery please let me know so I can rest easy at night knowing that not everybody will be ripped off...

not good

May 18, 2017 by John

I have invested in three projects on indegogo all of them sucked at getting the product done and out to you. I have been wait for almost a year for info and products. Clearly this is a website with out much oversight as to the quality of their participants. More likely just a bunch of folks try to get money with out actually producing anything.

WHAT A JOKE... iBackpack + Doug Monahan = INDIEGOGO

Scam - no refund

May 16, 2017 by Antony Bakke

Never support an Indiegogo campaign unless you are willing to lose your money. If the campaign is not funded 100%, the money just disappears. This is a scam. Someone keeps the money and there is no reply to any e-mails sent to Indiegogo. I lost my money, so believe me that this is not worth the risk.

Very poor Experience

May 07, 2017 by Robbie

Indiegogo acts like a middleman without taking any responsibility or accountability for the campaigns contributions go undelivered. You cannot even talk to a live person. I ended up not receiving goods after paying $260. You can only dispute with Credit card company for those charged 6 months back. These campaigns run over 6 months. So if you dont pursue and go after campaigners, chances are you wont get the goods you paid for nor you can dispute with your credit card company due to charges longer than 6 months. So Indiegogo is just making money sitting in the middle between contributor and campaign. So DONT trust this site.

Don't give them a dime!!!

Mar 12, 2017 by Cory Reiman

They could care less if you get the product nor do they do any due diligence on the products they're including in their web site as well as taking no responsiblity at all for the scammers they're helping to rip off people!! Don't give them a dime!!! This is nothing but a front for criminal behavior to bilk money from people. It's over all a total scam with no safe guards for anyone except their own bank accounts.

indiegogo don't really care if you get your product

Mar 06, 2017 by RJ Brown

After feeling very enthusiastic about indiegogo and their various campaigns I started to find that more and more of the products were not arriving. When I contacted them I received two form letters that basically said "too bad". They offered no help in getting in touch with the scammers. I am now busy contacting Visa to try and get some of my money back. Beware: many of the se companies are scammers!

Want to give no starts

Feb 24, 2017 by Darren

Have backed many ventures, most take it right to the wire before going AWOL, no communication, no product, no money!

Don't use Indiegogo!
