WARNING Starting Smart PR is a Scam

After launching our campaign we were contacted by Taylor Andrews Starting Smart PR (startingsmartpr.com). We got really close to pulling the gun to work with them but something about them gave me a bad vibe. After further research, I found out that Taylor Andrews and Starting Smart PR is part of the same scam group as Kyle Staebell and Crowd PR (crowd.pr) just going by a different 'agency' name. These guys were GlenRoss PR and CrowdPr.co and Crowd.Pr after that. Constantly changing their name (I'm guessing to escape all the negative reviews and scam warnings). Their website is filled with bogus lies (they only started this new company name and website two months ago) and they're boasting about campaigns that ended years ago. They said they didn't accept credit cards which was another big warning sign and wanted a wire transfer. They also lie about their location (said they were located in San Francisco when their business is actually in Denver, Colorado). Shady all around. Way too many red flags. Be careful.

You can't accuse someone of being a scam unless you've actually worked with them.
