And just because those companies posted your company badge and website link on their project pages you expect us to believe you had any association with them??

They could have just done that on accident for all we know. Doesn't mean you had any dealings with them, and it doesn't mean you worked for them.

lightraylass wrote:Hi all,

Wanted to come here and provide a warning to my fellow crowdfunding community. crowd.pr is the latest crowdfunding agency scam behind a long list of them (some long time members might recall seeing the names Crowd PR Guru, crowdpr.co, CrowdChirp, First Wave PR, Top Level PR, Milton's Boost System, and on and on and on they go. Constantly rebranding after they get caught.

A quick Google search and the scams are piling up again as people catch on to their reputation.

crowd.pr is filled with fake and fraudulent claims throughout the website.Claim to be in business since 2015 when they only registered their domain / site in a few months ago here in 2017?

Claim to be based in San Francisco yet are actually based in Florida?

Avoid William and his "company" at all costs. crowdpr can't be trusted::

These guys have been at this for years so their sales pitch is slick. They will lay on the lies thick. Be careful or you will be out $3000 or more when nothing is delivered and they disappear. Stay safe.

Here's a small sampling of some of their complaints from clients they've scammed. They've previously gone under the name, crowdpr.co, GlenRoss PR and are also now scamming under the name Starting Smart PR (startingsmartpr.com)::

Also, one big warning sign that all these scams will utilize is they won't accept credit cards (they know the consumer has the power of the chargeback once they are scammed) and have been blacklisted from the major credit card providers due to too many instances of frauds and complaints against them. They'll try and get you to either wire transfer the money or send via PayPal (friends and family 'gift') so you also aren't backed by PayPay's protection and have no recourse when it comes opening a dispute.
