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.

Another scorned 29 Prime / Reliable Places / Russell Russ Wallace victim.

“This company is a complete scam. They are located in Irvine. I worked for them as a customer service rep. And they train you to lie to the customers. Hard working small businesses that pay for their marketing by monthly and they do nothing. I have seen it all. They take your money monthly and when you call to assistance they train the employees to hang up on you if you request a refund. I do no t recommend using this company at all. They promise to put you on Google front page but what they trick you with is Google maps. Please do not be fooled by this fraud company. If you are having issues contacting them. Please call and ask for Jaqueline> she is the customer service manager. Also any positive reviews that you see from them they are writing themselves. They have employees pose as fake business owners and write good reviews. They even paid the BBB to help with their ranking. Please go through all the reviews before signing up. Also another person to contact is Marcus. He is one of the trainers there.”

More great info, we have known for a long time that they write their own reviews and spend more time working on their bad reputation than actually providing a service for customers. That is why it is more important than ever that if you did any business with them or worked for them that you write a real review on Yelp, Google, and the BBB so that others don’t fall for this scam anymore! If all people can see is the fake reviews written by these guys and not the real dealings then many more will fall. 29 Prime led by Russell Wallace is looking to expand having thousands of people calling and spreading this scam.
