Amidst so much "hype", misinformation and misunderstanding about crowdfunding fraud, we're trying to get an accurate view of the incidents of fraud in crowdfunding.
There are many new regulations on the horizon that will have a huge impact on the future of crowdfunding. Most are based on assumptions about the level and type of fraud that might occur as crowdfunding becomes more mainstream, and as equity crowdfunding is completely legal in the US.
The purpose of this study is to get an accurate and comprehensive list of cases of fraud in the crowdfunding universe - for the purposes of analysis and recommendation.
Identifying and collecting cases of fraud is difficult because many cases are obscure, unclear of simply under-reported. This is why we need your help in identifying cases and other incidents of fraud in the crowdfunding industry. We tried to make it as quick and easy as possible.
Thank you for your help in this important study!
