Have they vanished ?

Seems like sick magic if they have

Goes off to check interpol...

Edit) yes they are living it up in Costa Del Sol

No change or update since the last insta post. Website still there with stuff for sale and Insta still up. Twitter and FB are dead but that predated the last knockings anyway

Sick may reappear under new management...but I would have thought brand is dead (you wouldn't trust them would you!).

Just hope the people who are owed get their money..but in all likelihood the money is gone - badly managed and/or pissed up the wall. You can't get what's not there :-(

I wonder how many outstanding orders there still are? (As well as the Sleipner and Gnarpoon money)

To return under new management the company would still need to honour its debts and as you say, you can’t take what isn’t there.

The crowd fund stuff is particularly bad I think, they started a second crowd fund after not supplying the first (didn’t even get close to making them) and the media got behind advertising them too, they crowd funded through indigogo and not Kickstarter as it allows for projects without working prototypes to be pitched.

I mean, who tries to sell frames to the public without having ever even made a single one for basic testing? That in itself shows the attitude of disrespect for the customer.

As the money handed over in the crowd fund is a ‘pledge’ the people involved are completely done (not that everyone else isn’t) unless they paid them back separately.

I would never touch a crowd fund unless there was a working prototype and the people behind it were established and trusted.

Their customer 'service' email from their website is now bouncing back too.

Still haven't received my refund.

Still not returning my multiple emails.

Have kept a level head the entire time, but now is really starting to f*ck me off.

Anyone else had any updates?

I'm in the process of building some frames for someone now ,how about a magic marketing plan publicity stunt that if we have any materials left over I knock up some one offs and flog em at a tax write off loss

What would be amazing is if they could be custom built for some of those who've lost out in this debacle (assuming they're interested).
