    Does anyone know if there is a group lawsuit against Scarefactory I could join? They overcharged my credit card over the span from March to Oct and got away with the transactions as Visa only disputes transactions within 90 days. By the time I reviewed the overcharged amount, it was too late to dispute, sounds like he's done this before.

    I also think its messed up Transworld supports this behavior, im sure I wont be allowed back, as I reported Transworld to the BBB for knowingly allow this practice to happen on their turf and connecting new buyers to him. Considering Scarefactory spends nearly $18k on a booth per year, it's in transworlds best interest to keep him there. Really terrible people running this convention and even worse having a known individual committing fraud.... It's too bad, because there are plenty of good businesses at the convention.

    BBB and FTC know about Scarefactory, hopefully David goes to Jail sooner rather than later. You guys should do your part and Warn anyone you talk to, some of us didnt know this was a thing. When chatting with people about their "cool" props, Let Them Know... Im sure you'll sleep better at night

    If anyone is interested in connecting about a group lawsuit - feel free to reach out to me. I dont think Transworld should be released of the liability in this process either, apparently, it's common knowledge at the show they host.

    If I had the money, I'd buy the company just for the intellectual property and then go load up all the molds and call it a day.....I like the way the skeletons look better than any company out there....Whoever did the sculpting on all those did an amazing job.....ZR

    When has Dave ever told the truth? LOL

    I'm going with NEVER! My prediction stands, they're not going to last. I stand behind that prediction.

    I feel bad for the people who work there, I don't want any business to fire their workers. However maybe Dave can sell the company, they just need to get rid of him. Period.

    Dave called me today and explained that they have Internet phone lines and that they "Blew out their t1" and why they have internet up, it takes another guy that comes and reprograms their phone, and that they are waiting for him to show up.

    When you say hard to get a hold of them you should have said nearly all but impossible. I've never talked to ANYONE who told me they could get in touch with this company in a timely manner.

    Scarefactory should be banned from Transworld show one thousand percent. They're bad for the industry, and any orders they do get could go to new companies who do it for the right reasons.

    I wouldn't order from Scarefactory if they were the only company in the entire industry. They're simply put that bad. I want everyone to know I say this with some reservation because they have some really good people working there, its their leadership that is the problem not their workers.

    I wish their workers well, but honestly most of their workers with the experience have already left. here is hoping some of those people start their own companies and I look forward to supporting them.

    People will buy from other companies as soon as they start making things as cool as Scarefactory has. If you look over the past 20 yearscwho has made the variety of cool set pieces and props, and giant monsters that they have Year after year? Unit 70 and Distortions are great but SF has been huge for a long time. You look at other vendors at the show and it literally the same stuff year after year. It’s a shame they can’t get their act together because if they did they’d be much bigger and popular.

    I know a few things about Scarefactory but I was asked not to say anything so I won't... let me just say they're under a serious investigation. I would NOT order from Scarefactory. If you do you're taking a serious risk... this is a company that I think is going out of business. I also am predicting they won't be exhibiting at Transworld next year but hey I could be wrong but I'm usually not. Scarefactory in my opinion is the worst company in the history of our entire industry. Again order at your own risk.

    What does that say about Transworld that they allow them back every year? The money for renting the space is more important?

    BIG NOPE to this scumbag from me. Ordered in January, he failed to deliver. We sent someone to their "factory" 2 weeks ago. Said he'd send a check within 10 days....nope. Lawyers have been involved. I reached out to one of the staff at SF 3 months after the transaction, and he hadn't even heard of my order. Fachman is the biggest liar, and his entire company is built on thin ice.

    I have found official court documents that were filed on behalf of amusement parks in the UK and Egypt...if you follow the paper trail, you'll find that Fachman has ripped them off into the hundreds of thousands of dollars! They had the local sheriffs in Columbus lock Fachman and his team out of their own building more than once. They are professional scam artists, and any business they have with professional entertainment industry clients is purely by dumb luck. YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME, MONEY AND ENERGY IF YOU PURSUE ANY TRANSACTION WITH SCARE FACTORY.

    I'm in full agreement with Larry - their lineup at Transworld looked absolutely horrendous. I would love to see Unit 70 take over their space in the Dark Zone.

    I'm making a BOLD prediction RIGHT NOW... Scarefactory will not be at Transworld in 2020. Why? Because I doubt very seriously they will survive between now and then. That is my prediction. Order from them at your OWN RISK!

    This is my prediction. They have screwed way to many people for starters. They can't go to IAAPA so that market has been cut off. Their new product at Transworld 2019 was their worst in their entire history.

    Just my prediction.
