Steer clear!

Saw these chancers a mile off. I feel bad for anyone who parted cash with them, "Nick" who emailed me was very rude, and even called me a beggar for using a crowdfunding platform! Irony much? They refuse to answer direct questions about their services, which any normal business would be happy to supply answers to. Instead they just spam your email with standard templates and hope for quantity over quality of leads. If they won't give any answers or advice BEFORE you pay them, do you really expect them to be any different after you have given them your money? I'm surprised Indiegogo isn't able to put a stop to them but I imagine it must be a difficult legal situation.

Sadly not yet. I'm a bit suspicious of the whole lot of them now.

COMPLETE SCAM STAY AWAY

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I spent $200 after being convinced by GoFundSystems website testimonials (fake), good reviews (fake) and positive conversations with "Nick," Success Coach, to purchase this "Algorithm" that supposedly gets you to the front page of Indiegogo within 10 days. This is completely false and a total scam. They have done absolutely nothing and I am no closer to the front page or received an additional pledges from this purchase. When I asked for my money back I received rude and condescending emails back stating that I haven't followed their guidelines which include: Putting my own money into the campaign to boost exposure and asking my friends and family to do the same. They will do nothing for your campaign, do not fall for this scam.

I had TERRIBLE experiences with GoFundSystem as well. They are 100% scamming !

Found it out too late, just went to their website and ordered after receiving a message from (another scam) Crowdfundmasterminds. Claimed my money back at the bank. Suggest you do the same. There are some reviews and even a website about them: www.gofundsystem.co.

Add all information from the website to your claim and you'll get your money back. Gofundsystem is a terrible terrible scam!!!

Gofundsystem aka Milton Gregg is scamming Indiegogo campaigns

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
GOFUNDSYSTEM is a scam! I was stupid enough to order their package for my indiegogo campaign. They are very friendly in 'helping' out, but deliver a terrible service once you pay them ($297). I asked for my money back as soon I noticed that they are a scam, of course no answer anymore. So I did some research: If you have any doubt, do a reverse image search on the picture of their CEO Milton Gregg. A picture labelled as Milton Gregg at MIT in 2009 is actually a picture of Felipe Spinel, a Boston university graduate - Here is a link to the article where the picture was originally published: http://blogs.wgbh.org/.../6/18/visa-international-student/ If you are still not convinced, all the people listed under the testimonials page are not who gofundsystem claim they are - if you reverse image search each one you'll find the names and information doesn't add up. Gofundsystem only works on IndieGoGo projects because they know the secret to the GoGo Factor, right? Well, most of the people in the testimonials run campaigns on Kickstarter, NOT IndieGoGo! They claim to be in the market since 2009, but the domain is only registered since 10/2015. The picture they say is of a man named Cody M, is actually Conor Barry; here is the article where the picture was originally used: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/.../Incredible-iPhone-gadget... and here is his crowdfuding campaign on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/119627****/mogees If you're STILL not convinced, the last piece of evidence is the testimonial video - The man who calls himself John is an actor who specializes in testimonial videos. The following link will lead you to the actors Fiverr page which states "I will make A NATURAL Testimonial Video": https://www.fiverr.com/.../make-a-natural-testimonial-video Stay far away from this scam!

Thanks for this! Weirdly, this Milton person showed up under my suggested connections on Linkedin...what a surprise when I saw my own photo in his profile!

Since they have been outed they have changed their names and are coming at people from a new angle. Milton Gregg is now Milton Craig, and Gofundsystem is now SmartBoostSystem.

These guys are *** bags. Do not give them a penny of your money.

Yes! First: claim your money back at the bank.

Add all the information about the scammers! I got my money back this way. And when they get to many refunds, their payment service will close them down.

A bit of a sweet revenge, right? :)

Secondly: BBB.org (Better Business Bureau), ripoffreport and this site to help others.

GOFUNDSYSTEM - SCAMMING INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGNS

Why www.gofundsystem aka Milton Gregg is a scam! I’ve already launched 3 Indiegogo campaigns and one Kickstarter. 3 out of 4 successful. During each campaign I got around 5 to 10 offers from marketing companies, and it’s no different with my last one. While I do not know about each single one of them (some surely do offer a great service and added value), I do report the once that are a clear scam. the first thing I did when I received a message from gofundsystem, apart from checking their website, was a small google search. What did I found out? They claim to be in business since 2009, but an quick domain search clearly shows that they only started in October 2015. If you still have any doubt, do a reverse image search on the picture of their CEO Milton Gregg. A picture labelled as Milton Gregg at MIT in 2009 is actually a picture of Felipe Spinel, a Boston university graduate – Here is a link to the article where the picture was originally published: http://blogs.wgbh.org/…/6/18/visa-international-student/ If you are still not convinced that www.gofundsystem.com is a scam, all the people listed under the testimonials page are not who gofundsystem claim they are – if you reverse image search each one you’ll find the names and information doesn’t add up. Gofundsystem only works on IndieGoGo projects because they know the secret to the GoGo Factor, right? Well, most of the people in the testimonials run campaigns on Kickstarter, NOT IndieGoGo! For example the picture they say is of a man named Cody M, is actually Conor Barry; here is the article where the picture was originally used: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/…/Incredible-iPhone-gadget… and here is his crowdfuding campaign on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/119627****/mogees If you’re STILL not convinced, the last piece of evidence is the testimonial video – The man who calls himself John is an actor who specializes in testimonial videos. The following link will lead you to the actors Fiverr page which states “I will make A NATURAL Testimonial Video”: https://www.fiverr.com/…/make-a-natural-testimonial-video I’m sure that there are many good companies out there, but whatever you do, avoid gofundsystem aka Milton Gregg. It’s sad to see that people like this are out there.
