    Dear srs. I am from Brazil. I am not sure about the integrity of the site "When You Wish" of crowfunding. I am one of the contributers of one of the projects and according to the site, I should have refounded my money because the project didn't reach the goal. But since july/2014 I am trying to have my money back unsuccessfully neither the beneficiary have received that money. Now I am starting contacts in midia, government agencies, investors, and others in order to alert people and maybee have my money back. I am contact you because your site is mentioned in one of the adds/magazines pointed by When You Wish. What else can I do, please ? Thanks
