Kickstarter. Scams. Influencers

Kickstarter is a useful platform for people to raise the necessary funds to make and bring products to the market. Unfortunately, as with anything that involves money, there are also scammers who use Kickstarter to cheat money. Identifying scams on Kickstarter is not easy, just like nobody knows you're a dog in the internet.
