Two years ago, Breakit wrote about a successful Indiegogo campaign called Bioring.
The people behind the campaign had managed to attract thousands of individuals from around the world to invest in a “smart ring” that the company supposedly had developed. The campaign raised around $400,000.
At the time, Breakit interviewed one of the people behind the campaign over the phone, a Swedish man who called himself Michael Johnson.
We did not know at the time that the founders of Bioring soon thereafter would disappear with the money without delivering any products.

People who think they will never be caught always are.
