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!

Backed a project it all turned to custard. Indie no help to get your money back.

Indiegogo Scam Alert

Feb 23, 2017 by João Mascarenhas

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

Feb 16, 2017 by RUTH SIEGEL

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 . . .

Feb 11, 2017 by jc cheever

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!


Jan 05, 2017 by Howard

All I can say is Don't use this site, it is totally false.

At your own risk

Dec 12, 2016 by Richard

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

Oct 28, 2016 by Rene M. Coutu

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

Oct 28, 2016 by Rene M. Coutu

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 !

Oct 18, 2016 by emil

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
