Like every six months, now is the time to take stock of the Dune Pro project, this case that looks like Mac Pro 2019 Funded by Indiegogo. And as far as we can say it frankly: the news is not reassuring.
Eighteen months ago, the creators of the project assured us that The fund was finally approaching Despite the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. A year ago, we promised it Expeditions have begun While last Christmas, a few customers were randomly drawn Shared photos of the first models have been received.
Dune has since offered impatient customers to add $100 to $300 to their bill to take advantage of express delivery, in a bulk container for the first shipment, and direct shipping to the wealthy. However, of those, only about fifteen customers had actually received the case – and again, without the front face imitating the design of the Mac Pro 2019!
Today, it is clear that no progress has been made, quite the contrary. on me indiegogoThe project has been formally reviewed and new contributions are no longer accepted. The Official Website An error message has been returned since April, initiated by service provider Shopify, who preferred to throw in the towel. The Project Facebook page At a dead end and in the comments accusations of fraud are now mounting, without any reaction from the owners of the page. even Youtuber Linus Tech TipsWho reviewed the case in 2019, added a “Don’t Buy” statement to his video title. In short, it smells of fir.
Obviously, with four thousand customers and more than a million euros in nature, this situation does not make many happy. A few investors gathered aroundDuneScam.com And the’A Facebook group called “Dune Case” (Dune affair scam) where they share their anger. Dune’s creator, Alexander C. Gomez, obviously takes it for his rank, and his silence is disturbing—especially since he appears to be now retiring happily in Bali, where he appears to be living the good life.
It is clear that in the absence of a proper trial, it is not possible to directly accuse Dune of having carried out from scratch a fraud aimed at diverting the investments of overconfident clients. The company has already shown signs of activity for more than two and a half years. Prototypes shipped, photos of production sites shared, and the difficulties caused by the Covid-19 crisis, then factory closures, and the explosion of transportation costs are all too real. But it appears that in recent months, an optimistic connection has been deliberately orchestrated to hide the fact that the cost of manufacturing has been greatly underestimated and that the project may never be finished.
In short, you’ve guessed it: If, like us, you order a Dune Pro case, it’s probably time to make a decision. As we know crowdfunding always involves an element of risk. It looks like the wagon this time has definitely turned into a gourd.
