PR Kick is a Known Crowdfunding Scam

PRKick (prkick.com) is a known crowdfunding scam outfit who have been preying on crowdfunders for years. Every couple months they change their company name to escape the negative reviews (CrowdPRGuru, First Wave PR, Top Level PR) all the same BS company and vultures who do nothing but lie, cheat, and scam crowdfunding campaigns while doing absolutely nothing. Avoid at all costs! I know from firsthand experience. They took our $750 and just BS'd the entire time. We had to file a chargeback with our credit card company to get our money back. PR Kick is a scam of the worst type. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

Prkick aka backersflood aka crowdfundsocial aka smartboostsystem aka toplevelpr aka crowdfundforum.com

I hired PRKICK for my Kickstarter. Worst decision ever. They did not only take 5 days to get my 3 pitches ready, and I had to completely rewrite it at the end. They use fake reviews, false claims and rip you off with a smile. They did not get back to me close to the end of my campaign with an email stating that they did deliver everything, but the campaign was not going to make it. I WAS ALREADY 130% FUNDED! They did not even follow up or bother to check my campaign before sending me the email. I did my research, research I should have done before hiring the prkick aka crowdfundsocial aka smartboostsystem aka backersflood scam crew. EVERYTHING they claim is false: 1. they only started in December 2016, not 3-5 years before that 2. they have the first page in google full of reviews, but when looking closer, all self-created reviews, not a single one of them is real, they manage a fake blog/forum site crowdfundforum.com originating in the Philippines. It in few a few articles and several posts on prkick and how amazing they are. It's of course, owned and operated by them. Here is an example of what pretends to be a campaign manager, but is a hired actor: https://www.fiverr.com/klevitt70/record-a-natural-video-testimonial-in-hd? . ALL REVIEWS, TEAM IMAGES AND CLAIMS ARE FALSE! THEY BOUGHT REVIEWS ON FIVERR, CREATE THEIR OWN ARTICLES and NEVER, EVER DELIVER ANYTHING OF THE SLIGHTEST VALUE. 3. they have a review with a video on this site with "susan-raised-over-90k-on-kickstarter-in-3-simple-steps-crowdfunding-success" - the video is from a person selling video reviews on fiverr. It's NOT real. The campaign owner confirmed me that they never worked with them. To show how they blatantly scammed me, and you: the campaign ended years before To show how they blatantly scammed me, and you: the campaign ended years before prkick.com even started (they never worked with the campaign) and they use fake Fiverr testimonials. 5. They operate different sites, crowdfundsocial, toplevelpr and backerflood.com. All use the same type of images (all stolen from the internet), fake team members (images are from other people) and fake 'campaigns we've worked with'. Needless to say that they brought in exactly zero funds in and that for a fully funded campaign. AVOID! You will have only one result - zero pledges and burned your money.
