    The latest 3 announcement of november 6'th are interesting again:
    - The way he reacts is proof that the campaign is being disturbed, so far so good.
    - According to mr. "Hunt" just a few people are the reason for that. Any normal business would pay those few people back and give them no further reason to complain instead mr. "Hunt" is attrackting more and more attention to his latest problems.
    - He states he is not able to produce anymore due to a few messages on an Indiegogo board, which is another way of saying I see a chance to deliver nothing anymore and blame other people for that.

    Most interesting is that he actually describes what has been done, but claims the opposite: "Careless and deliver faulty product to contributors and cover it off as beta production and then sell upgrades to solve the problems. We would have saved the issues with delay, the cost of replacements and profited from the upgrades in the future. .... Option 1, would have created some backlash in the short term but in 6 months once people had upgraded the parts it would have been forgotten. Fortunately for contributors this was never an option in our minds."

    When I proposed to deliver an upgrade instead of the dual head I got an a-mail back offering me the upgrade for more than $ 600,-. When I answered that I was not going to spend that much money on upgrading this printer I never got an answer again. However we can now know that we have been delivered faulty printers with the intention to upgrade them at a high price.

    LOL: "Part of the delays we are experiencing is a result of the continued negative comments on the campaign, which are being monitored to determine our worthiness for the issue of a license. These comments are also making those who will control the license less willing to work with us when they feel this could adversely affect their futures and are now requiring we pay a substantial deposit to them for the use of the license when it is issued." (Since I cannot post on the campaign anymore it cannot be me that kills his business .)

    He allegedly has invested over $ 8.000.000,- and his factory is closed by people that he owes a total of about $ 52.748,- according to the list on this site (last updated: 10/29/15 16:22GMT+1). When paying back the 39 people that have stated they are unhappy he could run his 8 million dollar factory with 100 employees and churn out printers at a big profit . I would pay the unhappy people back instead of paying a substantial deposit. And I would put on my site and let all customers know that all problems are solved instead of delving deeper and deeper into the problems.

    However, getting the money back from mr. "Hunt" is not the issue. The issue is that Indiegogo must be stopped in knowingly supporting obvious fraudulent campaigns.

    THE RAPIDE LITE CAMPAIGN IS CLOSED!!!
    All Ethan Hunt campaigns are closed now as far as I know.
    By making it so personal it was made a challenge...
    It took 24 days...

    Indiegogo now owes us a great thank you for helping them to do the right thing.

    So what does that mean - its closed. He is off the hook for refunds/fulfilment or orders?

    I think so. He keeps repeating he's lack of factory but he keeps selling on ebay. He keeps repeating he's short of funds but keeps trying to recoup on sales thru Indiegogo. Delays, excuses, more delays, more excuses. Do your own math man...

    Yeah. If he sunk $8m into the project and only took in about $200k, while still being considered a success, there was something wrong from the beginning.

    @lharris,

    Basically it just means he can make no more victims.
    He cannot take new orders but still has to deliver all the perks legally speaking.
    For all practical purposes everybody that stepped into this Indiegogo and "the Crowdfund network" backed scam lost their money unless we can get it back from IGG and probably the Crodwfund Network.
    The Crowdfund network has been proudly backing Ethan Hunt, so they have been helping this scam actively.

    If he really has 8 million invested (presumably not his own money) then I really don't think we will hear from him again. Bigger players will take matters into their hands and his body may never be found. I really doubt their was significant backers in this venture -/big money would never have invested in him.
