Google Search Saves More Reliable Places Victims!

The scam truck

Don’t let Reliable Places scam you too!

I came across this story and realized how important all of the customer stories being posted really is.  If you have been defrauded by these guys taking a few minutes to write your experience and posting on the complaint boards/review sites will actually help stop others from being victimized.

Russell Wallace has  had to change his companies name several times over the years to get away from the bad publicity because the truth is that the only thing that can stop them is the truth about their business dealings. The law, the complaints, and everything else hasn’t seemed to have an effect as you look back at his more than a decade of scamming businesses and sales people. The only constant is having to change names every few years because no amount of scrubbing can clean that tarnished reputation.

You can read the story here,  this poor customer was actually considering joining this scam service but first googled this companies name… Now a real SEO company with great results should not only be at the top of the search engines for their target customers to find, but there should also be a huge group of happy customers thanking them for all of the great results. Just think about it, if a company really produces huge exposure and clients for your business you would write some really great reviews and be happy to be one of the examples for them to show other potential clients! Well a quick search revealed the truth behind these scammers and saved this customer from making the mistake so many others have made.

Please if you have been scammed by these guys, either as a customer or as a sales person please take the time to tell your story in the appropriate forums. If everyone took the time to leave real reviews and stories of their experience these guys would quickly stop being able to take advantage of anyone.

Reliable Places Career Scam!

Just when you thought Reliable Places aka 29 Prime aka Reliable Places and the 40 other aliases all led by Russell Wallace couldn’t get any worse! They are now trying to get around not paying employees by offering their services for resale hoping to have people cold calling from home and only being paid for the victims they are able to scam into the Reliable Places services!

This is all a push by Russ Wallace to get the attention off of his name and his company names. After all having to change company names every year to escape the bad business can be costly! With just a small amount of research you can easily find all of the scams that these guys have put together. This one has to take the cake though. The one weak link is that these guys don’t actually pay anyone, so it has always been a problem getting around the employment protections but setting this up as a multi level marketing and having each person take a new company name is ingenious! It can’t be tracked and the bad press falls on the small guys trying to start a business not on the people actually profiting from this scam!

Just look at the recent push to scam new people in! Here is a quick link that can show you exactly how far this goes.

Reliable Places is just another name for 29 Prime, which is just another scam setup by the con artist Russell Wallace. Before using these guys for anything SEO / Web Design / Employment just do 10 minutes of research on Google typing in their names followed by “reviews” or “scam” just to see how bad it actually is! They have gone through at least 10 names in the last 6 years that I have found and recently some ex employees tell me it is more than double that!

If you are looking for a job opportunity in these hard times the last thing you need is to fall for the Reliable Places job opportunity scam. Reliable Places isn’t offering you a career they just want you to setup a business in your name with the promise that you will “strike it rich” then to sell their SEO services to as many people as you can. After a few months you will find that they don’t actually pay what they promise, and even worse they don’t actually complete the services that YOU promised so you end up with no money and a ruined reputation with the customers you wanted to help actually filling complaints against you, slandering your name everywhere, and potentially harming future prospects you may have. Don’t let these guys ruin your reputation! If they had such a great service they wouldn’t need this scheme of not paying people, hiding their company names, changing names, and spamming the search engines. If they really could get people on the top of the search engines don’t you think they would be the most sought after guys on the net?! Just the word of mouth and continuing business would be enough. But this is a scam, they need to sign MANY people up a day to sell, and to buy from them just to keep paying their bills.

Good luck to all those looking for a job, and if you didn’t fall for the Reliable Places / 29 Prime  scams then job well done!

More Reliable Places Phone Scam Numbers

Reliable Places (ReliablePlaces.com)

New phone numbers from the well known search engine scam company. They robocall you pretending to be Google, then when speaking to them try to say you misunderstood the message and that they are actually a Google Partner (also VERY untrue) and try to scam you out of your money.


Buyer Beware, Reliable Places ReliablePlaces.com is just another scam by the well known con man Russell Wallace!

Reliable Places AKA 29 Prime aka Russell Wallace Now Attempting to Scam Veterans!


These guys have a 2 way scam going. They hire hundreds of people each year promising commissions that everyone meets when in fact less than 2% of the company actually makes more than a thousand dollars working there! Then the other side of the scam are the businesses that are promised marketing services and exposure that they never receive. This all would be bad enough but now these guys have their sights set on veterans!

WE MUST STOP THESE GUYS, veterans have done enough for our us and we can’t just sit back while Russell Wallace and his band of con men hurt even 1 veteran! This scam should have been shut down a long time ago but now the idea that they are going to start conning hard working vets out of their reputation with a promise of pay that they will never receive!!!! This just can’t be allowed to go on.

Here is an article outlining the scam:

These guys post thousands of these up trying to hide the real reviews and reputations of their company but knowing that they are specifically targeting vets is a personal call to action that I hope each reader here will take.  This article says that 29 Prime will be taking advantage of veterans by partnering with “Virtcom Consulting” I am hoping that this means that Virtcom is unaware of the scam that Russell Wallace, 29 Prime, and ReliablePlaces actually are. Here is a quick link to their contact us page. Please make sure you fill it out and let them know the harm that can be done to the vets that are subjected to these guys!

Yet another annoyed person on the 29 prime robo call list. At least the robo call now says to press one to be on the first page of google… they used to say that they were a department of google calling to verify your company information then would try to sell you front page rankings from their partner company 29 Prime…. Hard to believe anyone is even falling for this anymore just a simple search for their company name and you see what a sham these guys are. Glad to see someone else calling them out on it too!


A few days ago, I asked if anybody had a recording of the robocall. It sounds something like this

“Hi, if you like your business to be on the first page (or top) of Google, please press one, we are only calling one business per industry in your area, so don’t miss this opportunity…..”

When you press 1 to speak to a rep, some of us would ask “What is the name of your company”, and they immediately hang up. I have personally done this more than 3 times, same experience, in one case, the rep asked me why I want to know the name of their company.

I would hate to think there’s only one company out there and that they are 29 prime, but from the things I read, it could be (if 29 prime can come out and respond, OR, better yet, any company who does this…

Guy keeps getting calls from the 29prime scammers and youtubes it. As you can see they don’t have the information in front of them there is just a huge robo call list that calls people and tells them to press a number to speak with a representative and just connects to someone in the office but they don’t know who you are, what number they dialed, or if you are even a business.

Very annoying. Cold calls are bad, but this is just plain aggravating!

A Slice Of Big Pauly

I get calls all the time from these scamsters.

They call me all the time on my cell phone saying they have urgent news for me.  Of course, when I try to call them back, they only ask if I want to be placed on a do not call list.

I’m already on THE do not call list, so why should I want to be on their list that they do God knows what with?

I had a run in with one of the numbers 29 Prime used back in March:

And the threat Melissa made came true.  They keep calling back.  From different locales.

I’m sure they wouldn’t mind if I shared with you the numbers they like to use.  I’ve been keeping track of those.  Such as:






Don’t press 2 to be taken off their do not call lists.  If you press 1…
