YuFu: The Stylus Perfected. Pressure Sensitive Fine Tip
Creator: Jon Atherton, Wilmington, Deleware
Date funded: 1/2/2014
# backers: 1939
A working prototype was claimed to exist when the project was launched on KS; almost a year later and 7 months behind schedule, no working prototype has yet been demonstrated. Worse than poor communication from the project creator, who when he does respond to forum comments goes out of his way to be arrogant and insulting. He does however find the time to spam backers with promotions for further preorders of his nonexistent products.
lusan author: I ordered the Yufu Stylus on July 2014, so far after many delays the Yufu Stylus is MIA. I sent a few emails to the Hex3 company inquiring about the status of the Yufu delivery. They felt on deaf ears and did not respond, but in meantime they keep sending me emails selling the Yufu Stylus at 40% discount. The emails are dated March 04, March 17, and the last email was yesterday March 25, 2015. The address below the email soliciting the sale is as follows:
1220 N. Market Street
Wilmington, DE 19801
Would you please advise me what to do? Initiate a class action lawsuit?
It will be greatly appreciated.
PS: They started an account collecting sales from PayPal.

The same incident occurred to me. I’ve ordered and paid for their top range YuFu Stylus Pro during their 40% discount promotion back in June 2014 (I think this is discount is lasted for quite a while even though it said for a limited time). I got an immediate notification from their ordering system that tracking number will be given once ordered ships. I’ve waited for 3 months without any notification but their automated email keeps sending me promotions for YuFu or their GPS tag from time to time. I sent my email to their website’s customer service form (there’s no other contact method besides that) periodically every 3 months but none of the email was replied by any customer service agents. It’s now March 2015 and I’ve given up and considered this YuFu product to be a scam. I don’t ever believe there’s an actual product or unit to begin with. I think the founder just keep sending out these promotions material to unsuspected victims and gets them to pay for something that doesn’t exist. And since there’s no proper contact method, all emails are falls on deaf ears. Please beware of HEX3.co and their scam. It’s a lesson for me. And this is my first time buying from a kickstarter project based company.
