    What about: My dog has cancer and I can’t afford the chemotherapy bills, type crowdfunding scams…..

  2. Great article, thanks Jordan. It’s nice to see some attention being brought to the grimy underbelly of crowdfunding. It’s not in the self interest of crowdfunding sites to bring to light abuses and they are reluctance to assist in the act of preventing fraud or truly vetting project creators. Crowdfunding is ripe for continued abuse.

  3. I am really surprised that the watch guy got caught only based on images. I am even more shocked he wouldn’t have took the time to take all new images for the campaign instead of risking being caught.
