Indiegogo will use collection agencies to go after fraudsters

In a recent blog post, [Indiegogo] has revealed that it will start using third-party collections agencies to go after campaign owners who don’t deliver on their promises and those who run off with their backers’ money. Further, it has begun imposing stricter requirements on people who want to set up shop. The campaign owners’ legal residence should now match their projects’ address upon ID verification to prove that they’re not impostors. Owners are now also required to provide frequent updates about their project’s development and are not allowed to put up another if their previous campaign is still active. – Mariella Moon, Engadget
