Took thousands in for group pledges on several KS's and just kept the money.

Sad to be sure, but $35,000 is one tenth, if that, of what UP FRONT made off with .

And how did Boarders get product ? They must have paid the various KS companies. If they were shipped on terms, that's just stupid on the part of the publishers.

So is this is a Malaysian scandal or does it extend to other countries?

It seems that at least one publisher advanced product to them before being paid in full. However, the primary impact is that they appear to have scammed a bunch of Malaysian buyers. To save on shipping, the individual buyers paid Boarders to put in bulk pledges for a number of Kickstarters. The publishers (there is a list in the article) say that they never received a pledge from Boarders.
