Crowdsourced Funding Site, Kickstarter, Hit By Scam [bbc.co.uk]
Crowdsourced funding site Kickstarter has suffered its first publicised scam.

An effort to raise cash for a role-playing video game was exposed as a fraud by users of Reddit, Something Awful and other sites.

The project had $4,739 (2,922) in pledges out of a target of $80,000 at the point it was pulled by its creator.

Kickstarter could not provide comment at this time. The site has successfully funded nearly 22,000 schemes since it was created in 2009.
