Kik Freebie Scam

Kik Scams: How They Work Using Names Like KikBounty or KikGifts

Similar to some Tik Tok scams, this one works like the following scenario. You receive a text message on your mobile phone stating: “Kik has recently reached the incredible milestone of 100 million users! As a token of our appreciation, we are giving lucky users FREE gifts, and you have been selected! Visit www.kikbounty.com to see what you have won! Prizes are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis, so claim yours today!“. The website provided could be a different one, such as www.kikfreebie.com, www.kiklucky.com, or www.kikgifts.com. Most of the time, the scammer promises a free iPhone 11 phone.

However, Kik actually has 300 million users, not 100, but the scam still goes on.

The Kik Freebie Promotion scam is a bogus campaign put together by crooks claiming to be from the real Kik company.

Once you click on the link, a one-page website pops up, inviting you to write your username, to see what you have won. Once there, it doesn’t matter if you put “John” or “xvjnfdsbkj” – you will “qualify as our Platinum level prize winner.” There may be additional names related to the award, such as KikBounty or KikGifts. What’s next?

When you continue, you are required to download and open a free app (on our phone showed Expedia and Game of War as options). “After completion, this page will unlock,” it says the message. Well, you download the app and wait…and wait… and nothing comes in. Some say the scammers get a referral fee for bringing downloads to specific apps.

Kik Scams: How To Avoid

This is another bogus unsolicited text message. The message doesn’t even address you with your real name or username. It doesn’t matter what username you type in once the link opens, you will be an automatic winner, even if you don’t have a real Kik username! When you receive a prize…you’ll get it. You don’t have to work for it anymore.

Always do your research and work only for legitimate employers. If you are into online rewards and seek to make some money during these tough times, use trustworthy online platforms such as Swagbucks.com, which is the world’s largest free online rewards program. You get paid by doing things online which you might do anyway, such as searching the web, discover products, take surveys, watch videos, or play games. You can also get free iTunes and Amazon cards.

What is Kik Messenger

The Kik Messenger, popularly referred to as Kik, is a free instant messaging app produced by a Canadian company Kik Interactive. This messaging app is still freely available for download on Android and iOS devices, despite rumors that it will be shut down. It is one of the most popular messaging platforms out there.

The main attraction of Kik, which differentiates it from other popular messaging platforms is its anonymity. To register for the platform, all a user needs to do is to input their email address, first name and last name, birth date (users are required to be at least 13 years or older to register for the platform), and select an appropriate username. The registration process does not compulsory request the input of a functional mobile phone number, although there is an option for you to do so.

Kik is a great place to interact, connect with friends, and share different types of information using great features, similar to the Whatsapp functions.

Watch the video below to see what the major difference is between Kik Messenger and Whatsapp:

 

 

However, beware of other typical scams that users are susceptible to upon registration. Scammers on this platform usually employ different tactics, including blackmailing and catfishing – similar to the ones that were reported in Whatsapp, Tik Tok or Viber scams.

  3. Ich habe von Arthur eine Textnachricht bekommen mit Glückwünschen über den Gewinn eines neuen Iphone 6s !

  4. On kik I get a message about wining a gift. But when I search up the website there nothing about these gifts. If you going to me something give it to me and stop fucking around nobody got time for this.

  9. Oscar Fierros

    I got 2 kik users whose Eric Allen, Jack Peterson saying that to go to SamsungDay.com to go pick a prize but, I am not sure if this is a scam or not.

  10. I got a message from Nikhil Bell on Kik Messenger informing me that I had been selected to receive a $100 Amazon gift card. I haven’t ordered ANYTHING from Amazon in 1.5 years, so I knew something was up. I also only use Kik to keep in touch with my children when they are out of network cellular reception and have to rely on Wi-Fi at their friend’s houses. Since I am cynical by nature, I researched the website given (AmazonLucky.com)to see if it’s a scam. It more than likely is, because the website is operated out of Russia and Amazon wouldn’t be contacting anyone on a messenger app.

  11. This is a spam I was today’s kiklucky about a McDonald’s gift card and I went there and they said they don’t give out things like that not that they know of.

  12. Sean Michael Roman

  13. Got message from Kik user Suraj Cox saying I have been chosen to receive $100 subway gift card. I’m not positive but it’s probably a scam.

  14. I just got a message all legit looking for a 100.00 gift card for subway and to go to kikbounty.com… Owen Howard sent it.. I have no idea if it’s a scam but most likely.

  15. Also, here is another scammer: Dennis Price at allocatedstipends.

    This guy is has over 1100 followers and claims that he has these vouchers from incomm traveler stuff of vouchers gift cards and that if you buy two one vanilla cards that you put 20.00 on one and 120.00 on another and that you give him the 120.00 as a security for the 800.00 he is going to put on the card and that you get to keep 450.00 and he gets 350.00 and that the 120.00 you get back from the 800.00, his name is DENNIS PRICE, and he has the number 618-215-3246 and he has you contact him through kik messenger and his kik name is "wecangetmoney", it has been over a week and he then makes up a BIG LIE and then sends you messages from a 805-334-3786.

    Beware he is a scammer and he took my money and dragged me on for over a week saying stuff left and right that the system was down for maintanance and then that he has to use a sister network that takes a whole lot longer and then says it was accepted and that now all we have to do is wait for it to finish and then i dont hear from him, he ignores my text on all 3 of his contact numbers. This guy needs to be stopped and needs something done to him now, bc he took away from my kids and their easter and lied about everything.
