I wrote the original review here and I stand by what I wrote 100%. My name is Jim Rossi & I can be reached at email@example.com.
My upcoming book "Cleantech Con Artists" (summer 2019) includes a section on Magfast founder Seymour Segnit and his associates, who have a documented history of deceptive and fraudulent business practices going back to at least 2003 and "Change That's Right Now" (CTRN), a dubious NLP "cure" for phobias. Buyer beware, many red flags.

These jokers sent me a cease-&-desist, but when I sent a draft summary of what I found out about Magfast and their previous companies Thingcharger & Change That's Right Now - thousands of complaints alleging fraud, deceptive advertising, false claims, nonexistent customer service, the F from BBB & the Pattern of Complaint warning (see below) - and asked them to provide any evidence or corrections? After lawyering up, they clammed up.
Deceptive, cowardly and predictable. Look for "Cleantech Con Artist" later in 2019 - & in the meantime, buyer beware.https://www.bbb.org/us/ny/cornwall-hdsn/profile/battery-charging/thingcharger-inc-0121-155322/details#Pattern-of-ComplaintAlert: Pattern of ComplaintBBB files indicate a pattern of complaints concerning delivery fulfillment and advertising for thingCHARGER, Inc. Consumers tell BBB about ordering one or more charging devices from the company, and being charged for them, but after several weeks, months or even one year have gone by, the merchandise is not received A number of consumers say that after the order was placed, they find out that thingCHARGER, Inc. is conducting a crowdfunding campaign and the devices are a gift for participating in that campaign.
These consumers reportedly believed they were ordering merchandise from the company and were unaware that they were contributing to crowdfunding campaign. Most of the these consumers claim that there is inadequate disclosure of the business’s crowdfunding activities.

I'm a writer who specializes in fraud prevention. I got interested in thingCHARGER and MAGFast, detected a number of anomalies and falsehoods, and emailed questions to founder Seymour Segnit over the weekend. By today - Wednesday, January 9 - MAGFast took down their investment video and are no longer accepting investments.
Several of MAGFast's people have been involved in previous deceptive and/or fraudulent organizations.
Reason of review: Scam.
Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.
I didn't like: This is a scam.
