Smartboostsystem, before gofundsystem stole my money ($297). First 24 hrs: I ordered smartboostsystem for my 2 day old indiegogo campaign.
I noticed after less than 24hrs that there was an increase in visitors to my Indiegogo. After 3 days: Still had an increase in visitors, but no pledges. I installed Google Analytics before signing up with smartboostsystem. Noticed that none of the smartboostsystem traffic showed up in my Google Analytics.
Only on Indiegogo. I wrote them an email. After 6 days: No answer, no pledges and, what I discovered by now, fake traffic. With still zero traffic from them showing up in my Google Analytics link, while I did see Facebook and other referrals, I felt something was wrong.
It turns out that smartboostsystem uses BOTS, not real visitors. Google filters this 'traffic' out by default. Indiegogo doesn't. I reached out to Indiegogo support.
They confirmed that they did receive several complaints about smart boost system and that this Milton Craig is a fictive figure. But at the same time not able to do something about it. I should contact my bank and file a chargeback. What I learned: Smartboostsystem, before operating under gofundsystem.com, is a scam.
They created their own 'reviews', Milton Craig is a fictive figure, and they send $5 bot traffic on Fiverr to your campaign, selling it for $297.
