File consumer-protection complaint against Soap Inc located Monument, CO for fraud.

This petition had 473 supporters


Soap Inc. ran several campaigns on KickStarter.com and Indiegogo.com to build a "Touch Router & Tablet". Over 2000 people funded these projects raising approximately $400k.  They failed to deliver the router, eventually changing the scope of the project to software only, with promises they would provide off the shelf routers to the funders. To this date they have failed to deliver anything. There have been claims that one of the project founder may have used some of these funds to buy a car. A message needs to be sent out that KickStarter and Indiegogo are not platforms for fraud.
