CANNOT NEVER RECEIVED NOTHING FRAUD

Please get in touch with us so we can make sure you feel great about what we’re doing. Crowdfunding a project of this size was always going to take a long time and, perhaps inevitably, its taking longer than expected. If you don’t feel completely comfortable sticking with us right now then supporting a startup may not be right for you. Please drop us a line. Also, please check your email. Unless there was a typo in your email address we have been sending you updates every week since you placed your pre-order.

Reason of review
Order processing issue

Mr. Seymour reading all of these complaint it may me believe and leads me to believe that you Sir are a fraud.

I did placed an ordered on your Grand Opening online, all that garbage that you made us watch and I was promised a free charger of the lasted and greatest. Nothing received not even for the one I paid for. SHAME!!

I am truly disappointed with your Company not even any word or anything from your Company at all, no communication whatsoever.

Believe me I will be reporting this to the Better Business Bureau as Fraud.

As a customer that made an order with your Company in good faith, I'm very disappointed.

Please refund my money

Another person who didn't realize that they were funding the DEVELOPMENT of the product. The company really could not have been clearer about that.

I have now been charged for 5 months straight. Like this person, I never received anything.

My bank has returned 3 months but I want my money back in full and they need to stop charging me.

I have just reported them as fraudulent to my bank. If it doesn't stop I will get an attorney.

Read the emails and watch the weekly videos. No one has received anything yet, and won't for a little longer.

If you don't have any emails from them, check your spam folder. It is not a scam. You obviously don't know how to read since you don't make any sense about not getting anything.

If you want junk, go to Walmart. If you want good stuff, get your pants unwadded and read your emails from the company.

MAGFAST - Charger Review

Hi Bridgette: Thanks so much for attending our founder's online demo and getting on the list for a free charger once we've filled the orders to our paying pre-order customers.

Its hard to know how to respond to your comment because it is such a long list of misunderstandings and misinformation about other products on the internet.

We do have you registerd for the free charger and I see that we have been honoring our promise of sending you update emails every week since you signed up. The system indicates that you opened some of those update emails in the early weeks but have not been following progress more recently.

I hope you'll take the time to look again. We're doing something no other company - let alone one as small as us - has attempted before. We'd love to have you supporting us along the way.

MAGFAST - Charger Review

Saw an ad on facebook for a free wallcharger. Honestly, I don't even need a wallcharger and if I did I could just buy one BUT it was sorta cool looking. So I figured I'd go ahead and see where the catch is because I'm sure there is a catch.

So here is the catch folks. TONS of people have paid 50+ $ for these wallchargers during a kickstarter from this company. Bunch of people didn't receive their chargers!

NOW the company is convincing people to watch a 30 minute video with the promise of a free wallcharger that doesn't exist, with the intentions to sell another non-existent device that you will never get?

So they scammed a ton of individuals with the promise of a wallcharger and now they promise a wallcharger free to convince people to buy something else. And I guess some people got their chargers and some didn't.

Also, now you can buy these same chargers that this guy is telling you is valued at $30 for $12.50 on amazon https://www.amazon.com/430908****-P3-International-Wireless-thingCHARGER/dp/B01868OFJO

Where you can see tons of negative reviews. The company not honoring their warranties, not receiving, not working... generally just a lot of complaints. Funny, because the video they make you watch tells how they raised the most money that 20x less than usual people returned and how much people loved them lol.

I'm like 15 minutes in now and it's worse than watching QVC... the person convincing you that you need a strawberry corer or you can't go on living your life lol. Just terrible. Terrible way to try and sell things and terrible way to scam people.

Save your time, report the ad on facebook as a scam and do not be bothered to invest any time OR MONEY in this company. This is a shady shady practice that no matter how cool their stuff is should not be supported!

OMG and when they FINALLLLLLY many many minutes in show you the items they wanna show you.... SOOOOO ANTI CLIMATIC. They are huge clunky, the same freaking plastic that they accuse others of using... AWFUL.

--------

UPDATE:

Decided I was invested this far might as well watch it all the way through. As a review on the item wouldn't be a terrible idea. Ok so now where is my promised charger?

OHHHHH I don't really get it. I have to pay for it. It costs $14.... so I can "buy" it from Amazon cheaper.

Super disappointing company. I'm fine with buying things. Sell it, I will buy it. Don't be a scammer though. Then you aren't trustworthy.

If you look on Twitter...the same guy makes MAGFAST and thingCHARGER. They are both made by the same company.

Am I the only one who is smart enough to realize that it says “you’ll get your free charger when we ship”??? Says this several times in the video and on the site. Dang people always wanting something for nothing ....

They're already well over a year behind on shipping, & their previous charger startup Thingcharger shut down leaving thousands of complaints, an F rating from the Better Business Bureau, & this warning: https://www.bbb.org/us/ny/cornwall-hdsn/profile/battery-charging/thingcharger-inc-0121-155322/details#Pattern-of-Complaint Many more red flags. Buyer beware.

thingcharger was the original product and company. They're cheap on Amazon, because there are no updates on the old product and the company shut down.

The video was pretty clear in showing the differences between the original product and the new one.

I'd be more concerned that the original company had to shut down due to issues than in trying to compare an old model to new. Hopefully they learned from past mistakes in this new product and company.

Thingcharger has thousands of consumer complaints, an F from the Better Business Bureau which published a warning about them. Buyer beware.

My apologies - it looks like your issue was resolved before we got to answer you here because I see you are marked down to get a MAGFAST Wall when shipping starts.

So glad you're not a PO customer! Welcome to the family :)

I reserve the space I watch the video and in very interested in this product I just need to know how to get my free gift I was unable to do that and wanted to know how I get it or get it ordered but again I am not a pissed-off customer.!

Magfast family of products

I was really impressed with your line of products and how they fit so neatly together and do away with all those messy cords. Also the fact that you are an environmentally friendly company gives you top narks in my books. I am looking forward to receiving a white charger for my opinion and to try it for myself. Thank you.

Lesson learned here folks. Check out ANY business first BEFORE buying online to make sure others have not been scammed before.

If we had checked MAGFAST out first before we placed an order on October 2, 2018, we would have seen several complaints. WE would not have placed an order for $105.00!

Tryng to dispute the charges now with our credit card company. Wish us good luck!
