Brainiacs From Mars - SCAM EXPOSED - BrainiacsFromMarsBrainiacs aka Fundzinger SCAM BrainiacsFromMars SCAM EXPOSED - Internet Fraudster Nick Taylor scams crowdfunders at www.BrainiacsFromMars.com Anaheim Hills California
Brainiacs From Mars, aka Fundzinger is back at scamming crowdfunders again! Brainiacs uses different names, such as Fundzinger.com to steal thousands of dollars from crowdfunders launching their crowdfunding projects on Indiegogo and Kickstarter. They promise crowdfunders the world and then give ZERO RESULTS!
Brainiacsfrommars.com contacted me recently about promoting my project. The funny thing is, I was already contacted by them 6 months ago with my last crowdfunding project they worked on! And guess what? They used to call themselves Fundzinger, but they got so many bad reviews from crowdfunders exposing this PR scam that they changed their name to Brianiacs From Mars.
Its the same old scam, just a different name. Now their old website Fundzinger.com forwards over to their new scam website brainiacsfrommars.com. What a surprise. They now have a one star ranking on Yelp from crowdfunders who literally lost thousands of dollars to the crowdfunding scammers. [continued below]....
Obviously these slim balls did not even check my new project, they just contacted me again with the same old sleezy sales pitch! If they actually looked at my crowdfunding project instead of just spamming it, they would have noticed I already got scammed by Fundzinger less than a year ago! They prey on all the new projects that haven't been burned yet from their first PR scam (fundzinger.com) and just spam with their new scam (brianiacsfrommars.com). New name, same scam.
My first experience with Nick Taylor at brianiacs was enough for me! I let them know my two cents in the crowdfunding forums. That btw, is a great place to read up on crowdfunding marketing services. Other crowdfunders share their experiences so you know who to trust. Also, always google the crowdfund promotion service name and see what comes up. Anyways, I thought that was the end. But they have the audacity to keep their scam going and message my project AGAIN!
They also claim to offer a percentage of the funds raised. WRONG. They actually try to take a large fee up front before they start anything. They make you give them your credit card and charge you for whatever they can. I read on yelp that they charged some guy $7500 dollars in total!! When he tried to get his money back they refused. Luckily I called my bank and told them what I was dealing with here. They saw Fundzinger and Brainiacs was a known scam and put a hold on my card for me. What a nightmare. And now when they messaged my project again trying to scam me NO WAY this is ridiculous.
Stay far away from this shady "Nicholas Taylor" character and his numerous crowdfunding PR scams. They prey on crowdfunders launching projects on kickstarter, indiegogo, and gofundme. Yelp, the BBB, and others are already aware of the scam and I'm sure they will be shut down sometime this year. If any crowdfunding PR agency contacts you using the names: fundzinger, Brianiacs From Mars, Nick Taylor, Brainiacsfrommars.com, ect.. then STAY AWAY!
I have already reported brainiacs from mars to Kickstarter and Indiegogo so they can warm other crowdfunders about this scam. I suspect that they will keep spamming and calling crowdfunders to get some quick cash. That's why you need to warm others and let people know whats happenning. Comment on this post if you know any other names or fake aliases that BrianiacsFromMars.com uses. We need to stop these scumbags once and for all!
REPORT ANY FRAUD ACTIVITY ON WWW.BRAINIACSFROMMARS.COM & FUNDZINGER.COM TO LAW ENFORCEMENT!
