Fraudulent Kickstarter project targeted by Washington State AG
In 20102, Nashville-based Altius Management ran a Kickstarter campaign that raised more than $25,000 from 810 people to produce a set of “retro-horror” cards. Promises of great swag in addition to the actual cards have not been kept two years later. The Washington State Attorney General is investigating, and big fines could be coming, according to The Seattle Times.
