Scammer Accused Of Ripping Off Over 100 Kickstarters

It takes a special kind of scumbag to pull something like this. I just can't believe the credit card company didn't get suspicious after processing all those disputes.

First, "Encik" identified a Kickstarter campaign offering rewards to backers. They would pledge $1000, then await the receipt of their backer reward (you know, posters, books, shirts, etc). Once they got their swag, the user would then contact their credit card company and dispute the payment, keeping their reward and their money.
