Is Project Breakthrough a scam?

Is Project Breakthrough a scam?

If you’re here to know if Project Breakthrough is a scam or not, well, you’re in the right place 😉  

First, let me tell you why I decided to do this review.

It’s simple, I enrolled in Project Breakthrough, so I have my own experience to share it with you. After saying this, let’s move to the part where I tell you how I did enroll and why. 


I did sign up for the 14-days free trial after watching some videos on the internet of how anybody could make a lot of money with Online marketing. 

So after that, my goal was to learn everything I could about Online Marketing because I wanted to start my own business. And I did it! I learned a lot about the online business, but I guess because I was a total newbie on the subject.

However, the program promised that I would have my own online business working and making money by the end of the course. But guess what? Only those who have the elite membership may do it since is the only way to have access to all the tools we need for building our online business 🙁


Which I understand, but when I looked for the elite membership fee was too high, although they guaranteed I could make thousands of dollars in a month. So because I did not want to put at risk the little money I had, I decided to make some revisions before making a decision.

And as I imagined it, too good to be true 🙁


I found many complaints from elite members that said they were not getting what the program promised. Another thing that made me doubt more was the credibility of one of its founders Victor Strizheus, which I mention below.


Members’ Complaint

The biggest complaint is that when the subscribers enrolled they were encouraged to create their campaign on Project Breakthrough, then they would get a commission. But after a while, the promotion has canceled without any reason!

Unfortunately, all the members who created the campaign promoting Project breakthrough are not making any money after they invested time and money. Sad :(, right?


Real comments from some members

  • I am very disappointed that the $1.50 CPA offer is taken out from Project Breakthrough. This is very unethical as the only reason I paid for the Elite membership was that of the amazing Project Breakthrough funnel. By taking the $1.50 CPA offer out, there are many other systems/training to promote that are extremely more profitable than PB. Extremely disappointed and lost all my respect for everyone involved in HTA/Project Breakthrough


  • WTF Why did you stop paying $1.50?


  • I bought clicks from Click Promise and haven’t received them yet. They are telling me it will be 5 to 6 more weeks. I thought project breakthrough was the greatest thing since “sliced bread” but no. You get hooked up with click promise and depend upon them for traffic, and it doesn’t happen. I like so many others can’t afford to keep spending 297.00 + per month on promises. So I started to read the scam blogs on project breakthrough and had a real eye-opener. Going to request all my membership fees back from HTA and will see where to go from there.


  • As I have followed the 14-day program and had ISSUES w ClickPromise, AdExpresso, and Facebook. Clickpromise…Bought 100 clicks 5/10/16 Received receipt but no further contact for more information. AdExpresso. They cannot publish my Ad due to Your message couldn’t be sent because it includes content that other people on Facebook have reported as abusive.


Who are the Project Breakthrough Founders?


Vick Strizheus:

Vick described himself as a creator of some of the most successful and highest converting marketing funnels in the Internet marketing space. He also claims to have a world record for earning the most amount of money in the network marketing industry…… more than $720,000 in the first 30 days. It sounds great, uh! But not everything about Vick is so good.


Why? Well, let me tell you something from his past that may question the honesty and credibility of his business. 

In 2007, Vick was arrested and sentenced for committing fraud to an insurance company. How? Faking life insurance applications with information of people who didn’t even exist.


He also has been involved in Empower Network that is an MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) or Pyramid scheme. Besides, he was the creator of several companies that turned out to be a scam. Some of these companies are 7 Figure Marketing School, Global Success Club, and Big Idea Mastermind among others.

After all this, I only can say that any business where he is everyone should think twice before enrolling. 


Jason McClain:

Jason is an entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience in marketing who has a strong understanding of technology, creativity, marketing, sales, and online strategy.


He mentions having invested more than 50,000 hours building marketing and businesses that include online: software solutions, search engine marketing, social media marketing, email marketing, website design and development, employment relations, contract structure & law, trademarks, branding, traditional media outreach, and buying.


He has also worked with large enterprises such as Home Depot, GE, Dish Network, Blockbuster, Columbia House, AARP, TGI Fridays, and ADT.

It doesn´t sound bad, right? He seems like a person that you might trust to enroll in Project Breakthrough. I do not blame you; I would do it too.


How much does the Elite Membership cost?


The first month of the membership is $60.00, but later you pay $297.00 per month.

Moreover, you will need a domain for your website which costs $10.00 per year.

Other tools:

GetResponse is an email management system. This system offers a one-month free trial. After that, you will have to pay $15.00 per month for the lowest package.


Clickmagick is a traffic tracking system. It also has a free trial but only for 14 days. Later you will pay $12.00 per month.

Mouseflow is a spy and optimization system with a price of $24.00 per month. You get a 1-month free trial.


Clicks Promise is a website where you pay for traffic. The price depends on how many clicks you buy. The minimum is 100 clicks per $200.

All this means the first month you will be paying around $280.00, but later you’ll pay up $350.00 per month. Too much money!




In my opinion, it is a scam, after seeing what they did with the PCA commission, all the complaints and Victor’s background I can’t believe it is not a scam.  

If you are looking for a program where you can learn everything about Online Marketing I have good news for you due you can find plenty of programs to enroll for less money with all the tools included.


There is only one thing you have to keep in mind; there are no programs completely free. You always have to pay for your domain and different tools. This is why it is important to look at all the alternatives and its prices, this way you may decide which suits you better.


If you allow me to recommend some Wealthy Affiliate is a program where you can learn everything about the online market and how to get a successful business. If you are interested in learning more about the program, visit my post “Is Wealthy Affiliate Scam or Not?”


I hope you have enjoyed the article.

Can I ask you a favor? Can you leave me a comment? Anything you want to share I will be happy to read it.

  1. Well, I think nothing is for free. These kinds of companies are always tricky, one must be very careful before enrolling in.

  2. Thank you for showing the other side of the coin. We do have to be aware that every offering something on the Internet is most of the time expecting to get something in exchange, and that is absolutely valid, the thing here is to not get by tricky or dishonest means.
