Sue Exploding Rabbit and Jay Pavlina


Suing Exploding Rabbit and Jay Pavlina

I wrote a detailed article about how to sue Jay Pavlina and Exploding Rabbit for the undelivered rewards for Super Retro Crossover in the post about Super Retro Squad being cancelled. Maybe things became to real for Jay Pavlina and Exploding Rabbit after that, because he made a token post on Kickstarter to make it seem like Super Retro Crossover was actually going to be made and Exploding Rabbit would deliver of the rewards. Based on the track record of Exploding Rabbit and Jay Pavlina, this poor soul he is working with will be driven away by Jay Pavlina and then he will go silent for months, maybe years, and nothing will actually be delivered. Long story short, the lies about Super Retro Crossover coming from Exploding Rabbit and Jay Pavlina should not be believed.

Can Exploding Rabbit and Jay Pavlina really be sued

Yes. The answer is a definite yes, and its not that hard. I told you the steps in the post about Super Retro Squad being cancelled. But wait, has anyone done this, and did they win? Why yes, yes they have. In fact the FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION ("FTC") took action over another failed Kickstarter called "The Doom that came to Atlantic City." The Fed found that the creators used "deceptive tactics" by raising over $112,000 and using the money on things like RENT, MOVING TO OREGON and PERSONAL EQUIPMENT! The Fed ordered this failed Kickstarter to pay $111,794 and no longer participate in crowd funding. You might think there are potentially a a lot of similarities here. Exploding Rabbit and Jay Pavlina admit to spending the money on things like RENT, MOVING TO OHIO and PERSONAL EQUIPMENT! I wrote about it in the post Jay Pavlina thinks you are dumb. You can read the case here from the FTC website.

Whats next for Super Retro Crossover and Exploding Rabbit

So if the FTC took action against another Kickstarter for "deceptive practices," then why have they done nothing with Exploding Rabbit and Jay Pavlina yet over Super Retro Crossover. It seems like Super Retro Crossover could potentially have also been a scam. The FTC probably has not yet heard about Super Retro Squad, Exploding Rabbit and Jay Pavlina. Maybe it is time they should? The contact information from the FTC action taken on the other failed Kickstarter is below

Federal Trade Commission

Good luck backers! I am happy to be your voice when nobody else seems to care!

Super Retro Crossover - Scam Returns


Super Retro Crossover Scam

The Super Retro Squad scam is being continued by Jay Pavlina of Exploding Rabbit and he went back to calling it Super Retro Crossover. This isn't a new name, I wrote about it when he changed Super Retro Squad to Super Retro Crossover back in 2015 in the post Super Retro Crossover Scam.

You should know Jay Pavlina is just continuing the scam. Basically Jay Pavlina posted to make it look as though something is happening, get poor Kickstarter backer hopes up that there would ever be a Super Retro Crossover from Exploding Rabbit. But there won't be, its just more scam so he thinks he gets out of refunding backers and getting sued. One backer named Inazuma asked a real good question about Jay Pavlina's Super Retro Squad post nonsense

"Does this mean that you won't give me the refund I've been waiting years for? I still want my refund."

Jay Pavlina from Exploding Rabbit answers with

"@inazuma: Most likely not, but we'll see.  "
"@Inazuma: Although I won't be delivering the documentary. Maybe after the game is released I can use the money to refund some people..."

Ridiculous. Keep in mind Jay Pavlina is hoping to continue to e-beg on Patreon to collect EVEN MORE MONEY while not refunding for Super Retro Crossover like he should. You can check out my post on the Exploding Rabbit Patreon Scam or about how to sue Jay Pavlina and Exploding Rabbit to get your deserved refund in the post about Super Retro Squad being cancelled.

I think most people know that Super Retro Crossover and Exploding Rabbit are a scam, but please people, do not trust the lies of Jay Pavlina again. Jay Pavlina just wants your money and Super Retro Crossover will never be made. It is a scam, always has been. Serena Nelson on Cliqist writes

"Sometimes a Kickstarter comes around where you can’t help but cringe a little every time you get news on its development. And this is certainly the case with Super Action Squad."
"I may not have personally backed Super Action Squad, but looking at the past track record I’m glad I didn’t."

Well put Serena. I'll keep everyone updated on this Super Retro Crossover Scam until the lies stop and backers are refunded.

Super Retro Squad Cancelled

Jay Pavlina scamming
Public image used

Super Retro Squad is cancelled

It has been 4 years since Super Retro Squad was funded to Jay Pavlina and appears to finally have been cancelled. Now Jay Pavlina does not have the respect enough for backers to ofically say that Super Retro Squad has been cancelled, no his technique is to just sweep it under the rug like the Super Retro Squad Kickstarter scam never happened.


What Jay Pavlina did

Jay Pavlina scammed backers out of their money which was pledged for Super Retro Squad. To this day, the rewards go unfulfilled (breach of contract). Jay Pavlina has gone ahead and removed anything about Super Retro Squad from, including the refund page. This means there is no way to even request a refund anymore. Obviously during the way he changed the name of the "game" several times but really didn't produce anything at all.


What can be done

So now that Jay Pavlina is just pretending that the Super Retro Squad scam never happened, has not delivered all the rewards and there is no way to even request a refund anymore, what can backers do? Start by reading the post about getting a refund for Super Retro Squad and then you will see that the only option left is to sue Jay Pavlina and Exploding Rabbit. This option is all that's left because Jay Pavlina removed a way to request Super Retro Squad refunds.


How do I sue Jay Pavlina and Exploding Rabbit

Exploding Rabbit is set up as a limited liability corporation (LLC) and is officially called Exploding Rabbit LLC. After speaking with a lawyer you would want to send any demand letters or serve any court papers to the corporate address on file mailing it certified mail so Jay Pavlina has to sign for it and acknowledge receipt. This address is for the house that Jay Pavlina appears to have bought with backer money.

Corporate Address:
Exploding Rabbit LLC
6386 S Canterbury Rd
Parma, OH 44129

Jay Pavlina you may have scammed people and think you got away with it but we will never forget! The fact Exploding Rabbit is still scamming people on Patreon is truly amazing. Good luck with the law suits backers and let us all know how it goes in the comments.

Super Retro Squad Update

Jay pavlina and exploding rabbit are not updating backers like they should so the exploding rabbit scam blog will step up and do it.

Incredible folks, remember that Super Retro Squad by jay pavlina of exploding rabbit is.... wait for it.... still not made!

It is seriously mind blowing the level of epic failure on the part of jay pavlina and exploding rabbit. As a reminder, super retro squad was funded on kickstarter on July 19, 2012. It is now June 6, 2016!! Yes that is right, jay pavlina of explodingrabbit has had almost 4 full years to complete super retro squad. Check out our Exploding Rabbit Super Retro Squad Timeline.

So what on earth has jay pavlina and exploding rabbit been doing? Well that's a good question. Jay pavlina set up a patreon page to e-beg for more money. Luckily nobody is actually falling for this nonsense.

Of course jay pavlina changed his mind on so many things several times. Jay pavlina from exploding rabbit changed the name to operation pyxel and then joined up with JForce games but of course that didn't last long because they quickly realized jay pavlina is a joke and does not actual work.

Here are a few of the updates from the exploding rabbit patreon scam as written by jay pavlina of exploding rabbit
"I don't really know how to schedule the google hangout."
"It's very important that patrons read this because I changed what I am doing."
 "You should read over the rewards because I changed them. I also changed the goals just so that I can focus on the game."
"I'll try and do a better job of having something by the end of the month instead of shortly after."

In summary - Jay pavlina is not competent or qualified to make games. He is just selfish and wants to milk money out of people so he doesn't have to work a normal job. Please people, stop enabling this madness.

Just say no to jay pavlina and exploding rabbit
