Prevently, Inc. / Laurence Girard / Kristen Faulkner Prevently company hires writers, gathers personal SSN information then goes silent Cambridge Massachusetts
After responding to an online advertisement for health writers in July (2013), I was hired by Laurence Girard via his contact Kristen Faulkner (along with 499 others I am told), asked to create a personal account on the company's platform, and the provided (via email) with a brief on how articles were to be written. It has been over a month since I began writing for this company.
Laurance Girard, the headmaster behind the creation of Prevently, seems to have quietly slipped behind the scenes. The web address and contact links on the Prevently website do not work however, there is a publically listed email address where I was able to send an email and voice my concern about lack of payment for the articles. I was told to be patient.
After contacting other writers who were also hired by Kristen Faulkner, the hiring contact for Prevently, they too were brushed off, told to fill out the information and to be patient; that the site would be up and running in ten days. The site remains dead.
A little research resulted in the finding of another health website started by Laurence Girard in November, 2012 called Nurtitas. His photo is beside the website so it is clearly the correct Laurence Girard. That site is also dead. My research also showed numerous claims on raised capital that are clearly inflated as he claims one amount in private mail exchanges and a much larger amount on public websites. He has made, from my research, false claims on capital in regards to other companies he has (claimed to have) started as well.
I would warn any writers who come across the name of Laurence Girard (or Kristen Faulkner) seeking writers, especially health writers, to save your time and energy and move on to greener (and paying) pastures. This guy is a complete fraud!
