Kickstarter is notorious for its fraudulent so let’s try and catch them before they get out of hand.
Below are a few recent scams that are notable.
Updated to include a new wallet we’ve just researched – The Walli Wallet.

Added the Lucca Bozzi Wallet.

It raised $177,151 in capital through its Kickstarter campaign back in 2017.
Comments from backers on the project seem to indicate most haven’t received anything and those that have received a shoddy, bulky wallet nothing like what was described. The original Lucca Bozzi website is now defunct (can still be found on the Wayback Machine), and the creators stopped updating their project back in March 2018.
Another fine example of ‘smart wallet’ scams. FML.

Adding another wallet that we think is a scam. This time it’s the Woolet Wallet. First funded in 2015 the wallet managed to raise over $300,000 in funds but didn’t really deliver on the project with many backers still yet to receive anything. Those that did receive their wallet found it not as described with many of the Woolet’s so-called ‘smart’ features simply not working.

The company still trades but I’ve yet to find any evidence that people receive their goods or they’ve improved on the Woolet’s quality. The lack of reviews or unboxings on YouTube is a big red flag in my opinion. For more information and the story of Woolet read our article here.
