The Sondors eBike campaign is the 2nd most funded campaign on Indiegogo of all time, having raised over $5.2 million. More than 12,000 backers have supported the project with the majority contributing with the expectation they will receive a budget eBike this year. It now looks like Indiegogo have allowed some thieves to rip off well-meaning supporters to the tune of US$ 5.4 million, which, based on their fees and pricing structure, means Indiegogo are also scoring on this – at our expense. If this campaign turns out to be a scam, what, if any, chance do we have of recovering the funds we committed??
Some depressing threads on this topic –
So far no reaction from either Indiegogo or the Sondors campaign staff. This could turn out a depressing turn of events for our efforts to get affordable ebikes into Namibia
