SEO Reputation Management at its best!

Gregory Smith with Search Simplicity is one of those guy that offers local seo services and training.  I found him online offering advanced GSA seo training.  To get you to sign up and pay quickly he discounted his price from $750 to $675 and gives you this sad story about how his wife is suffering and can't get meds in his state so he has to drive out of state constantly to find a doctor that will prescribe her pain medication.  Felt really sorry for the guy and his wife.  Then he tells you that his wife suggest he throws in one medium difficult keyword he will seo for free with the fee.  Once you paid him, he tells you we'll get started next week.  Next week comes and he gives you every kind of excuses why it's not a good time to start the training and don't let him fool you like he did me using his wife and emergency as a constant excuse.  Then he has the nerve to tell you after two months he's going on vacation so he can't train until after the Holidays. [continued below]....

.....  When he finally agree to set a time he never shows up for the schedule meeting.  One time he did show up at the schedule time and tells me his pc crashed and lost everything so we need to reschedule again.  In between you can't get in touch with him and when you threaten him to refund your money, he'll jump online only through skype and try to sell you more services.  As long as he thinks you're willing to pay him more money he'll talk to you but won't say anything about the services he's already supposed to provide.  Then when you say no because he's trying to scam you again, he stops talking to you.  

I paid this guy back in Sept 2013, today is Jan 2014 four months later he's ignoring you and when you ask for a refund he tells you no refund and he'll get to you whenever he can.  I've never met such a fraudulent internet marketing guy in all of the people I've run accross.  At least with other scammers they give you a product or the training materials they promised.  This guy takes scams to a whole new level brining in his wife as a sob story, all sorts of excuses and then block you because he don't want to refund the money or do anything for you.  I would stay away from this guy unless you're willing to lose that money.  There are much more legitimate companies you can get seo services or training with.  I had to learn a hard lesson but I will make sure that he will not do this to someone else again.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

You don't know.

AUTHOR: Greg's sister - (USA)

Well I have tons of affiliation with Gregory Smith and I can say he wasn't lying about anything. He did have to constantly travel for his wife and he absolutley loved working on his computer. His PC did crash and he had to get two different ones in that time frame. My brother passed away in November 2014 from congested heart failure. He stays heavily on my mind and I know how much he loved his blogs and computer work so I googled him. This is not what I wanted to find. I'm sorry things didn't work out for you, but it did for a lot of people. he was not a ripoff artist not was his intentions ever bad. I would appreciate if this was removed.

I have no affiliation with Greg nor his company. I only read his posts on G+ and commented from time to time. I can't comment on his ethics nor his business but I wanted to update you that in November Greg passed away. 

I'm sorry you had a bad experience.
