The Scott Weiland / PledgeMusic campaign saga appears to be drawing to a close. The crowdfunding site officially responded to complaints on Weiland’s page and, apparently, PledgeMusic is as dissatisfied as everyone else. Scott Weiland’s band, the Wildabouts’ new record – Blaster – was funded through the crowdfunding site.
The letter, from a customer service representative at the site, posted to Weiland’s page reads:
We are aware that many of you are still waiting on items and updates on outstanding orders.
We have been checking in with Scott’s team constantly for confirmed shipment dates and updates and do hope to have answers for you all soon.
An update is due to go out very soon–most likely July 8th via the updates section
We want to advise that we will resolve every issue for you in due time, unfortunately it is an increasingly busy time of year and there are many issues on the campaign.
If you would prefer a refund than to wait, please tweet us @pledgemusichelp and our customer service team will process your refund for you.
Thank you so much for your patience throughout this campaign, we certainly understand and appreciate your frustration and hope any open issues can be resolved for you soon.
Meanwhile, fans continue to slam the former Stone Temple Pilots frontman and his management for failing to deliver expensive incentive packages that fans purchased from Weiland through PledgeMusic.
After fans took Weiland’s organization to task last week for not making good on shipments, more chimed in this week.
One fan said, “A total bummer . . . cost me over $5,000 for nothing . . . Never again.” Another fan named Mark wrote, “It’s Iike Scott took the money and ran,” while a third named Pat said, “Waiting on my refund now. I’ve had enough.”
