i'll be making a small claims court case but will update people here on things I am able to share on the process.
Any updates to share?

Is this the biggest scam in keyboard history?

in terms of monetary value probably no, but in terms of sheer betrayal of trust it's definitely up there

Wow, 2022 is the ALICE year?

Do I tell him?

You see this a lot lately. It's just someone trying to boost their post count so they can sell us stuff.

The name and bio make it super obvious. I just find it really funny that they commented on this specific thread and the GSKT with positive thoughts.

yeah sprit was low 5 digits, this is likely mid 6 (my math has it around 300k). polartype could be up there but i honestly don't know enough about it to say for sure.

there have been a couple other mid 6 exit scams. team redline was like 100-200, for example. they're nothing new in keyboards.

E8v1 was a pretty major one that ended up working out. i think when i made that post i was thinking of that guy who faked having cancer and took all the GB money to buy a bunch of gucci goods or something. was that dolphin v3? i think those boards also eventually went out, though.

i think what makes this so unusual (and therefore keeps us all posting in the thread) is the fact that it doesn't look like people will be getting their boards. even with those other GBs, including more recent ones like moon v2 and gskt, at least there's a pretty clear potential people might actually get their boards. even stuff like 280 and jane v2 CE, it's clear that the runner just made mistakes, not that they were ever trying to exit scam. even mech27v2 ended up with the affected people getting refunds not too long ago.

that's why i'm of the belief that jaxx wasn't going into this trying to scam people -- i think he just royally ****ed up somewhere in the process and is ghosting everyone to avoid responsibility. that doesn't make it any more or less OK, and i'm just speculating here. i don't think we'll ever really know what happened here unless jaxx comes out of hiding and says something. at this point i find that to be a remote to nonexistent possibility.

I can't say for Jaxx as what he intended or not, but I'm of the same opinion that what makes this different is this was possibly the first case of the runner simply proofing out of existence. Jane V2 and the Notary 280 were harsh, but the runner was there somehow and didn't ghost people at this level

It's been over 2 years (about 2.5 years) since the group buy ended. It's been over a year since the last update on Discord (9/18/21). How are there no updates since a year ago...

Jaxx, if you're still here and reading through these comments, please give us some update, even if it's the same as the previous update letting us know that there is no update...

I'm super glad I got out of this buy early. I really don't understand what Jaxx expects us to think of him when it pretty much looks like he has no intentions of even trying to keep this GB alive even though he keeps saying that he intends on finishing Rukia eventually.

After looking at the timeline again, seems a little suspicious that Jaxx kept leading everyone then vanished around the time chargebacks weren’t really possible. We were fed lies and gave him the benefit of the doubt. Meanwhile he’s laughing to the bank. Situations like these make me hope karma is a thing.

Indeed. Karma or league action.
It's disgusting to think about how much money he stole form a large group of people who had nothing but trust in him.

There must be several people in the GB that know him and live in the area? But I presume he refunded them early on to avoid any "real" situations..

At all. Jaxx has dealt with me pretty much the same way as with everyone. The only time I got special treatment was when I stormed into the thread demanding he contacted me, which he did, and then vanished again. That was, what, an year ago?
