That's why debt collection agencies have their uses, I think.
Only if there's a physical somebody (with a known address) for them to go to - if the internet rumours are to be believed, this is not the first time that this has happened for some of the current RCL staff, and it's not beyond the realms of possibility that collection agencies have been used before. I really don't think IGG are going to be able to actually do much in this case, collection agency or no.
Do we think the guilty parties will get what's coming to them?
Or that any of the crowd-funding sites will change their T&C's to protect backers?
No and No. Persons running a business that runs out of money very rarely suffer any consequences - the business folds, they move on to something else. As long as money wasn't misappropriated (and define "misappropriated" because even spending company money on lunches can be classed as expenses) illegally then they can just close up shop. Terribly sorry to all involved, lessons learned, etc etc. So that's unlikely.
As for the crowd funders - again, no. If they make it hard for these businesses to operate, then they'll eat into their own profits. Ventures that fail are their meat and drink, making up a huge portion of their customers.
Well if we are talking about the guys that tried to find a one S Martin, then that story ended up with them finding her
IMO, if the Vega+ is not delivered - and lets be frank here, it most likely wont. Then I think the backers should do a class action against the directors Martin and Levy. Maybe a pro bono job, based on the leaked bank account statements that showed they drained the accounts. There are rules on how to conduct a business etc, I'm pretty sure a lawyer would be able to work out an angle
I'd worry that the directors will just go bankrupt either before or just after the court claim comes in. It's why I'd advise trying to get a refund as soon as.
Sometimes they're elected president of the USA.
I still think backers will get a Vega+ but it will be much lower quality than the campaign promised.
By "much lower quality", you mean "invisible"?
