Waive your service fees to help the victims of the earthquake in Nepal

Every cent counts when people donate money to help the victims of a natural disaster. I am from Nepal, and I need your help to make sure every dollar donated to Nepalese earthquake victims actually gets to the people who need it. Thousands of well-wishers are opening their pocketbooks in solidarity with the overseas Nepalese community to help raise funds for the victims of this weeks devastating earthquake in Nepal. Most of the fundraising efforts have been through crowdfunding platforms like Indiegogo, GoFundMe and Crowdrise which have helped raise thousands of dollars to date. Yet, not every dollar is going to the victims. While these platforms are convenient, they levy processing fees that vary between 3 and 9%. In this time of dire need, we request Indiegogo and Crowdrise to show support and let 100% of donations directly benefit the earthquake victims in Nepal. The Nepalese government has declared a state of emergency after a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck central the country this week. The earthquake has caused extensive damage and the number of people confirmed dead has topped 4,000 and is steadily rising as officials get information from the rugged countryside that makes up most of Nepal. The survivors and relief organizations need every dollar donated to help aid in the relief efforts, take care of the wounded and begin to rebuild a country whose major cities have been left in ruin.   That’s why the global community is requesting Indiegogo and Crowdrise to stand in solidarity  with the victims of this natural disaster so that all donations can directly benefit the earthquake victims in Nepal. The international support for earthquake relief in Nepal has been overwhelming and we are very grateful for the assistance from foreign nations, organizations and businesses. Several foreign businesses such as Google, Facebook, Viber, Skype, AT&T and T-Mobile have showed support by providing tools to locate missing individuals, mark missing individuals as safe and make telephone calls to and from Nepal for free. Help us request Indiegogo and Crowdrise to chip in too. Join me and thousands of Nepalese living overseas and request they waive their service fees for donations towards the earthquake victims in Nepal. Thank You.

Hold UNObrush Accountable for Defrauding 28,721 People

Over 28,000 consumers worldwide have been defrauded of over $2.7 million USD by a group of Danish men who have documented involvement and convictions for fraudulent business scams in Denmark. So far there have been no consequences for the UNObrush fraud they committed on Kickstarter and Indiegogo with a campaign marketing UNObrush, a "revolutionary" foam tooth-cleaning system that they claimed had already been developed with a patent pending, and proven test results for the effectiveness in cleaning, along with a "docking station to sanitize the mouthpiece...preventing the buildup of harmful bacteria.” Campaign information also included false claims of awards and media coverage. The Kickstarter funding period was Oct 22 - Nov 22, 2018. Almost immediately after it closed there were indications that the foam had not been developed as claimed. On Feb 20, 2019 update #21 indicated that a different type of brush may be substituted. On Aug 29, 2019 (one day after the Indiegogo funding period closed) we were told we were getting bristle brushes that appear identical to dozens of brushes already on the market selling for as little as $5.  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/100951725/unobrush-toothbrushing-reimagined/descriptionThe fraudulent intent of the UNObrush group is even clearer with the Indiegogo campaign. By the time UNObrush launched on Indiegogo, Kickstarter backers had already been told there were problems with the foam. However, UNObrush launched the exact same campaign as they had on Kickstarter with all of the same false claims. The funding period on Indiegogo was from Dec 28, 2018 - Aug 28, 2019. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/unobrush-toothbrushing-reimagined?utm_medium=referral&utm_source=indiegogo23-e.fnd.to#/Numerous backers have requested refunds from UNObrush, Kickstarter and Indiegogo with almost no success. For most of us, the time period to request a refund via the credit cards used for payment had already expired before we were notified that we were not getting foam brushes. Kickstarter and Indiegogo have refused to investigate the UNObrush team and campaign, and Indiegogo ignored my attempt to warn them that this was a problematic and potentially fraudulent campaign when UNObrush first launched on their platform. Numerous backers have also contacted the Danish Consumer Ombudsman's Office, who has refused to investigate. While we would love to get our money back, we also want to see UNObrush held accountable. We know this is not their first fraud and it won't be their last if there are not legal consequences. By signing this petition you will help us to get the attention of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, Kickstarter, Indiegogo and the Danish Ombudsman and will help stop this group of fraudsters from harming others. Some of the many claims from the UNObrush campaign:  “patent-pending 360-degree wrapping UNOfoam™”“Enabling it to reach 99.9% of the surfaces and crevices on your teeth – cleaning your entire mouth in just 6 seconds.”“We designed the UNOBRUSH™ docking station to sanitize the mouthpiece with UV light after every use, preventing the buildup of harmful bacteria that compromise the health of your teeth and gums.”“Through extensive R&D, clinical trials, research and hundreds of material tests, we developed UNOfoam™, our patent-pending medical-grade sponge-like material that’s optimized specifically for oral hygiene.”“UNOfoam™ is engineered from high-density polyurethane and embedded with micro-ridges coded in a criss-cross pattern to create micro-cleaning friction powerful enough to remove 99.9% of dental plaque and delicate enough to gently stimulate and protect your gums from the long-term dangers of gingival inflammation.”“Its unique cell structure and density simultaneously transfer vibrations while staying pliable enough to mold and form around each tooth, coupling 360-degree Wrap™ technology and intense sonic movement – a revolutionary pairing unheard of in the oral care industry that works to lift the oral plaque from your teeth surface and stimulate the gums.”“We often get questions about the cleaning power of UNOfoam™ when compared to traditional bristles; in both medical studies published in the British Medical Journal by Dr. Marino, Dr. Hannigan and Dr. Haywood of the Cardiff University School of Dentistry, Cardiff, UK, and our tests, UNOfoam™ is as effective or more effective than a traditional toothbrush – but that’s only when a toothbrush is used properly.”“UNOfoam™ also overcomes the need to choose between soft, medium and hard-bristled brushes, another dental hygiene decision many people get wrong. While the American Dental Association recommends soft-bristled brushes, the mere option to purchase medium- and hard-bristled brushes leave many people with damaged gums that are subject to gingivitis and periodontal disease.”

Indiegogo to investigate The Vibe Labs' Nuflo ANC earbuds project and cease promotion.

We are the backers of the Indiegogo campaign by The Vibes Lab for Nuflo Soundproof ANC wireless earbuds. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/nuflo-soundproof-anc-wireless-earbuds/x/17242549#/ Now delayed by 5 months, currently, some of the unfulfilled backers have done some digging and found identical products on Alibaba https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/True-Wireless-Stereo-Wireless-Earbuds-Active_62517237933.html and suspect that The Vibes Lab merely acted as a shell for reselling an existing product, while purporting to be a crowd-funded development by The Vibes Lab. The Vibes Lab has said they have outsourced all logistics to a 3rd party which gives them the excuse to not communicate any details on how many orders have been fulfilled nor any indication of when any given backer's order might be fulfilled.  The lack of product delivery to the backers is hugely disappointing and infuriating, it is a risk one takes as a backer, and might eventually lead to a legal case against The Vibes Labs. However, and in the interim, we the backers, are utterly shocked by Indiegogo's apathy in all of this and the fact that the Nuflo Soundproof ANC wireless campaign page remains visible, indeed a link to the project is still on the landing page of Indiegogo. We, the undersigned, therefore request Indiegogo:1) investigate the situation from their side, to establish whether or not this campaign is legitimate or is likely to be an attempt to defraud or deceive backers of what was purported to be a product development. 2) block any further contributions to any campaign by The Vibes Lab 3) remove the campaign from their home page. Indiegogo has disappointed many Indiegogo users who have lost trust in their operation.  We hope they cease the banal platitudes and take action instead.

Tell Indiegogo to not allow RAW

Raw is a new sandbox open-world hardcore MMORPG with a unique approach to social structure and high attention to gameplay details or so we thought, After "shroud" Stated how this game is the biggest scam and how other companies haven't nor will try to make a game like raw he goes on stating it wouldn't be possible for them to make something like this but everyone still had hopes (I did as well), Throughout the month of June RAW have released a somewhat "Gameplay Footage" Of them driving a truck and driving a "bought assets" (Now I'm not here to be upset of a bought assets as all games have to start somewhere) But they then stated that they would release "Proper Gameplay Footage" after they "Program" functions into the game for it to work, Nearly Three Weeks later the Kickstarter campaign was suspended and the reason why they were suspended is they broke kickstarter TOS which stated "Creators raise the amount of money needed to bring a project to completion and fulfill all pledged rewards. which on their campaign it stated "After the Kickstarter campaign, We will start an IndieGoGo campaign" which was not allowed (This was the first-ever time anyone has heard of this rule) but the truth why I'm making this petition is to stop RAW From going on IndieGoGo and for the reason why is time after time after time developers have scammed players for their money just to make a slobby undeveloped game and overtime RAW has pushed back there release date on the "Proper Gameplay Footage" and have stated "We are going to release gameplay video as we promised no matter what. It will take us 2 more days, but we will share it with our community here on Discord as soon as we possibly can." but on the next day, RAW then stated "Let's talk about the rumors that the gameplay will be released tomorrow. We didn't set an exact release date because we had to decide what to do next. We are going to launch the IndieGoGo campaign, we need to prepare everything for this and our gameplay including new additional material about RAW will be placed right there when the campaign starts. We consider an option that our gameplay will be released one day before IndieLaunch, but we can’t tell you the exact date. Kickstarter confused us a little, but we'll start our IndieGoGo campaign and try to do everything to make it happen. We will inform you about IndieLaunch here on Discord." So the truth out of all of this is gameplay footage will never come and R.A.W is only looking for profit, Us as players are just tired of paying for something that isn't truly game content I'm tired of these game developers scamming players like you... So please help me stop them from going to Indiegogo...

Waive your service fees to help the victims of the earthquake in Nepal

To the Change.org Community, Thank you for highlighting the need to easily support each other without fees in times of need. We at Indiegogo agree with you. This philosophy and commitment to serving our global community led us to launch Indiegogo Life last December. Indiegogo Life enables people from all over the world to come together and support the causes that they care about the most, without ever having to pay platform fees. Indiegogo Life has never charged platform fees, and we're very proud of this! To ensure all donations are securely processed and in real-time, our third-party payment processor charges a 3% fee per transaction. At this time it's not within our power to waive this fee, but we will let you know if anything changes. What makes us most proud is the fact that in five days more than 400 people have raised more than $1,400,000 on Indiegogo and Indiegogo Life from more than 17,500 donors across 100 countries and territories to support the relief efforts in Nepal. The breadth of the impact enabled by these fundraisers is astounding and a testament to the human spirit. If you would like to support the aid workers, volunteers and the people of Nepal, please visit our Nepal Relief Collection https://life.indiegogo.com/campaign_collections/nepal-relief-fundraisers. Thank you for continued support of Indiegogo Life and the people of Nepal.
