Don't give them a dime!!!
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
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
Have backed many ventures, most take it right to the wire before going AWOL, no communication, no product, no money!
Don't use Indiegogo!
Don't expect any help if it goes wrong
Backed a project it all turned to custard. Indie no help to get your money back.
Indiegogo Scam Alert
Indiegogo is a paradise for scammers. Campaigners will steal your money, don't send anything and Indiegogo doesn't care, they don't even reply your questions. Worse than that, even when everyone is aware that a campaign is a scam Indiegogo still allows it to continue getting more backers. Stealing more money. Avoid at all cost.

INDIEGOGO does not help contributors to projects
I have been waiting more than 2 years for my THINGCHARGER. All I get are excuses. This is the second project that I have supported and the first was a problem too, although I FINALLY received my purchase from the first one.
Indiegogo does nothing to help customers who have been waiting years for their products. All they do is refer customers to the company that is ripping them off. Indiegogo is happy to take their cut and be on their merry way. Perhaps the attorney general of Maryland will be interested in this consumer fraud!
If you are a startup company, find a reputable funding source. I can't believe that Indiegogo's reputation will continue to attract funding from consumers.
indiegogo stole my money . . .
if I could give 'no' stars I would. $800 fed into this BS machine . . . nothing came out . . . customer service told me tough luck . . . really? caveat emptor! don't give these frauders or any of their so-called causes a dime! unless, of course, you like pissing money away - in which case let'r rip . . .
If your perk doesn't get delivered you have no recourse as Indiegogo has goven your money to the scam artist and he keeps telling you that your perk was shipper over three months ago and is still in transit!
SCAM SCAM FRAUD AND THEFT
All I can say is Don't use this site, it is totally false.
At your own risk
Contributors beware! You are funding an idea and there is no guarantee or recourse if you do not receive anything!
Beware, You Are On Your Own!
Shame on me. I should have checked these reviews before I ordered anything from INDIEGOGO. I've funded six different products already, and have only been happy with one. ALL products that I funded have shipped from 3 to 10 plus months after the expected ship date. I am still waiting on two, one that is 1 month behind and the other that is already 10 months behind. I written INDIEGOGO to cancel the product that is over 10 months behind and still haven't heard back. My biggest complaint is that a product that they backed, the "Thinnest Charging Case", came in approximately 6 months late, and fell apart with 1 week. Their website is not real, and the customer support information that came with the product is a bogus email address. Clearly INDIEGOGO does NOT do due diligence with the companies that they allow on their website. I would be glad to update this review if INDIEGOGO would do the right thing and resolve these issues.
Ripped off 2
The long and short is the order was left sitting in a warehouse until the salesmanager at Inergysolar found it and shipped it. I got the first part of the order and dropped a dispute from my CC and they are claiming they didn't get paid even though it shows on my account and they are withholding my solar panels. I'm out $660 instead of $4260 Thank U Inergy Solar
Ripped off from the indiegetgogo
I was led to this website via a googlesearch for solar sulutions and the Kodiak Gold link was the best bang for the buck I clicked on the link and ordered 2 of these systems, The link says Generator and ac chargers ship immediatly, that was 10/9. 10/12 still no shipping notice and I call my CC company to ask what they can do. they say to dispute the charges and keep trying to contact vendor. after 3 days of emails from their site and phone calls to their toll free line
INDIEGOGO The new wave scammers !
One star because you have no other way to give them -100 stars.
Nice photos and story on each item , garnished with a lot of lies , Reason = scamm your money.
I lost 133$ with them for one product, it seems the they work with all kind of scammers, and share the money .
After you pay and wait the delivery date, they delay you week after week ,because, in fact they have nothing to deliver, they only cash the money PERIOD.
I wonder how is that possible in the USA ?
I made one complaint in USA to B@B sites but it seems no one care about it....
I think that from this "legal" scamm a lot of people have to win black money.Press, gov etc
IndieGoGo is a SCAM!
IndieGoGo is a SCAM - do not pay any money to this operation as you can just as well throw those dollars in the trash!
Another bad review
None existent customer service. Great sight if you want to take money off people not very good if you actually want something for your donation. Stick with kick-starter in future.
Keep away!!!!!! They are just all a scam!
still waiting for refund
I donated to MY OWN Campaign and 2 months after it is closed they still have not refunded my $1,0000...clearly a SCAM site....stay away!
