Geek Subscription Box Company NerdBlock Files for Bankrupcy

By Laura Kate Dale on at

After several reports of suppliers going unpaid, customers not receiving their orders, and customer services pages going offline, geek culture box company NerdBlock has now filed for bankruptcy.

The company, who was based in Canada but shipped boxes worldwide, owe huge amounts of money to companies like Funko, Udon Publishing, and Diamond Comics, as well as owing $1 million to the Toronto Dominion Bank.

As the company has filed for bankruptcy, and has massive debts to numerous stockists, those with subscriptions will not receive any further items, and should contact their bank about preventing any further charges.

Numerous Kotaku UK readers have contacted us in the past week complaining about being charged for shipments that did not exist, and saying their attempts to cancel subscriptions directly via NerdBlock have been unsuccessful. Any further charges NerdBlock makes to your account will likely go into paying off its mounting debts, so if you've had any dealings with them contact your bank and make sure nothing funny's going on.

The publisher Udon made this statement in an email to Nerdblock customers.

While I've never been one for random tat boxes, it's always a shame when people get charged for a product that isn't going to come.
