Review Of CrowdPR (crowd.pr)

I recently saw some negative reviews about Crowd.pr being a scam.

I wanted to share my experiance with them, as they were instrumental in helping us raise over 300% of our campaign goal.

They helped us secure articles in the following publications: Gizmodo, Mashable, Geek.com, Mikeshouts.com, the Gadgeteer, Digital Trends, and Gear Junkie.

Our most successful article, Gizmodo, directly raised over $6k, and helped us be in the overall top 5 trending projects on all of Kickstarter (which lead to even more money raised.)

It's to bad that they have been labeled a scam, as they worked hard for us and produced results. If anyone has specific questions about them, please feel free to email me.

"Kyle", "William", and their other names they go by are just the same scammers dressed up in a new brand. They were previously crowdpr.co (https://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/cr ... ca-1368403) and countless other names before this.

Same song and dance as always. Crowd.PR is a known scam. They aren't located in San Francisco (actually based in Florida) look up their address (18 Bartol St, San Francisco, CA 94133). It's a fake address that anyone can pay a few dollars a month for a 'virtual address' (https://www.davincivirtual.com/loc/us/c ... ility-2435) to pretend they're a legit front in SF. Watch out for the fake Fiverr reviews on Google as well.

These guys are a known scam outfit and are doing their best to prop up this new name online. The truth doesn't lie and these guys are getting caught just like they were countless other times all over online.

Happy to answer these accusations. First off, that report is about a different company (crowdpr.co & glenross) it is not about us.

Second, our coworking space sells virtual offices as well, it is a common practice.

Beware of Kyle William, he is a con artist of the greatest type:

I launched a crowdfunding campaign and was immediately spammed by a gentleman named "William" who promised me the world when it came to delivering PR and Media. The sales pitch was great and he also provided a lot of pressure how I needed his service. Our team agreed and sent over the $3000+ plus for his services and that's where it ended. He constantly dodged emails after that and they didn't do a single thing for our campaign. It was a hit and run scam of the greatest type.

---

I started researching crowd.pr after and found out they were a part of a giant scam ring that constantly changes their name after they get caught ripping off so many people. I was one of the unforutnate few but hopefully this review can help others to avoid crowdpr (and whatever they'll start caling themselves next.) Here's what I found online during my research:

Here are a few of the names they've gone by over the years: Crowd PR Guru, crowdpr.co, CrowdChirp, First Wave PR, Top Level PR, Milton's Boost System, and on and on and on they go.

The company says they've been in business since 2015 but only started their website in 2017 this year. They say they're in San Francisco which is another lie yet are actually based in Florida. The lies add up over and over and this is one company you need to avoid. Nothing they say is true. Hopefully someone reading this can avoid the same fate we did.

I see you linked to another report that is not about our company. The report you just linked to says:

Here are a few of the names they've gone by over the years: Crowd PR Guru, crowdpr.co, CrowdChirp, First Wave PR, Top Level PR, Milton's Boost System, and on and on and on they go.


I think the author of that report thinks we are part of different companies. The report even says:

I started researching crowd.pr after and found out they were a part of a giant scam ring that constantly changes their name after they get caught ripping off so many people


What I think is happening is that you and the author of these reports thinks we are other companies that have similar sounding names as ours.

I know this can be difficult because crowfunding companies love to use the word crowd in their name.

crowdpr.co was Crowd.PR's website before their "reputation" caught up to them and GlennRoss before that. https://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/gl ... co-1328906

Be careful, they'll make you wire cash because once they have it, it's gone. They've been blacklisted so many times from the major credit card companies due to chargebacks from customers they only accept bank transfers and wires. Remember-- sending PayPal (or Venmo, etc.) money virtually as a "Gift" or to "Friends or Family" (as they'll request) means you have no recourse. With a credit card you have protection. Best of luck!

This is the 3rd time you have linked to a report that is not about our company. That report you just linked to is about a pr firm called "Glen Ross"

And again, our you are confusing our agency with other agencies like crowdpr.co or crowdco.co.
