LMcable Kickstarter Suspended

The first Kickstarter campaign I decide to support, has been canceled. Kickstarter gave no details other than what appears to be a form letter. But it’s very disappointing to know that the first program I decided to back, ends up being suspended for what appears to be possible fraud.

Hello,

This is a message from Kickstarter’s Integrity team. We’re writing to notify you that the LMcable | The world’s first IOS & Android Common Connector, project has been suspended, and your $25.00 AUD pledge has been canceled. A review of the project uncovered evidence that it broke Kickstarter’s rules. We may suspend projects when they demonstrate one or more of the following:

  • Offering purchased items and claiming to have made them yourself
  • Presenting someone else’s work as your own
  • Misrepresenting or failing to disclose relevant facts about the project or its creator

Accordingly, all funding has been stopped and backers will not be charged for their pledges. No further action is required on your part.We take the integrity of the Kickstarter system very seriously. We only suspend projects when we find strong evidence that they are misrepresenting themselves or otherwise violating the letter or spirit of Kickstarter’s rules. As a policy, we do not offer comment on project suspensions beyond what is stated in this message.Regards,
Kickstarter Integrity

      Kickstarter doesn’t take your money unless the project was funded. So they never charged you as it was suspended before it was funded.
