Marilyn Crawford stole close to 40,0000 dollars from an NBA athlete  Jerome Williams for payment that was supposed to go for high end web development and told Jerome Williams the money was his half of the payment and Marilyn kept the money and did not pay the developer any of if. the web site is http://urbanautostyle.com/ which Jerome and Marilyn are partners. neither Marilyn nor Jerome made it right and the developer lost so much time and money from this he actually tried suicide.  Marilyn Crawford is making a habit of doing this to many people.

Dysfunctional/Disgruntled man lied about Marilyn Crawford


POSTED: Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Marilyn Crawford is Professional, Loyal, Trustworthy & Competent. Marilyn had to take out a harassment complaint

because she was harassed with emails and texts with HIS lies. Dysfunctional/Disgruntled MAN lied about Marilyn Crawford, and tried to disguise this by giving a females name.

Unfortunately being a great success brings a lot of haters, liers, jealousy and envy. Marilyn

Crawford has never stolen anything from anyone ever in life, never been sued, nor harbored

bad wishes for anyone. Matter of fact, there are 2 people doing this. One she has NEVER even met the MAN, (he is using a fictitious name woman behind this mess). The other person that initially started this just wanted more money from her than what she paid and he agreed to accept for graphic/internet design. So then he went to Jerome and asked for more money, and then when that did not work, he wrote this bad untrue statement.  The mistake MC made was being kind to others, so much so they wanted to get money from her and work for her or with her. When she showed NO interest, this was the result.


There are 2 people DOING THIS. Each of them met while one was doing the graphic design for a new business.

Each of them claim to have been lied to by the other, so the #2 contacted her and asked for help.

She told him she had NO jobs, but turned him on to a RFP and told him if it came thru, they could entertain

it. When it did not happen, this person lied, and continues to lie. Instead of taking for what it was, as simply application process that he loss, he blamed MC for his loss. Then proceeded to exaggerate on what #1 lied about. The name is a MADE UP fictitious female name. THE VERY SAD THING, is the first did one thing for her and was paid, the second is someone MC has never even met nor ever talked to and especially never worked for her in her business. He just continued on the lie,  startedby his associate #1, and kept maligning Jerome and Marilyn.

TRUTH -  Jerome and Marilyn had a business venture, but NO ONE stole anything. An investor in the business did not materialize, so they were ok. They were fine with it, because that is just doing business. This 3rd party hater, place this on the site and is a computer person, so he and his other counterpart keep it on the site. Any fool knows that $40,000 goes to every aspect of developing a new company and had NOTHING to do with all for website. Plus MC was doing all the management and negotiations for Jerome's other multiple Canadian, US, endorsement, marketing and PR contracts, which was a part of that. If MC had charged JW for her services, it would have cost a lot more. She and Jerome are fine with the business thing and it is behind them. These 2 other guys, not the girls name used, are mad at their lives, so they have chosen to target MC. There was nothing for Jerome, nor MC to make right.

FACT - These other 2 people who wrote the bad stuff and keeps SEOing it, one wanted MC to give him more money than she already paid for a simple graphic, and they other one (she never even met) wanted a job or contract. Simply out of evil devilish intent the 2nd one exaggerated what the first lie had said. This internet can be a blessing or just bad news people, threatening to continue to spew lies and lies if they do not get their way. Then they do it. It is a new form of blackmail from surfs of the internet looking for victims like MC.

But KARMA is a great thing, so GOD has taken care of MC for her good heart & generosity with others and will continue to do so. Thank GOD this has been a blessing in disguise, because everyone who reads it calls and ask what is the real story behind this outlandish lie. It is not even consistent with the history nor character of MC. So the good thing is, it sends me business and puts me in a position where decision makers want to talk to her. The bad thing is, it is an outrageous lie, no truth to it, and she heard one of the people behind it, sadly went blind and loss an enormous part of his lifestyle. Yet he continues to spew HATE, only because she didn't deal with him for business, so he picked up on a lie and continues to perpetuate it. Let us all pray for him,

it is not a 'her', and it is someone, that she NEVER EVEN MET. So SAD people are that evil, maybe one day they will wake up and know the more positive they give and project, the better their life will become. AMEN. To take it down would cost between $10 -$20,000. I pray for all the bad people that they will wake up and drink the coffee and start living a positive purposeful like. This is just WRONG to lie on a nice person. Marilyn Crawford has mentored over 80 young people and been nothing but nice, professional, trustworthy and competent in dealing with her clients. There is a reason why, after over 25 years of business, this is the very first negative written on her. The good thing is Trump, Gilbert and lots of other successful people have the same thing done to them. Real successful business people get it and move on, so the damage these 2 evil people are trying to do, they actually do to themselves everytime they keep doing bad things to MC.  Matter of fact, I received an emails from MC years ago, talking about these 2 guys looking for work, Chris and before that one for Sean. She never met Chris but wanted to help him, she felt bad for Sean and wanted to help him. After reading this, I understand the meaning of "BEST INTENTIONS being unrewarded". I was afraid to deal with either of these guys (remember going under the fictitious girl name). These guys are dangerous and if they will try to ruin people and do this to people that tried to help them, then what will they do to me? Internet is a SCARY SCARRY place, nothing has to be verified and people can just make up stuff...

Marilyn Crawford is NOT a woman of integrity

AUTHOR: Christopher - (United States of America)

I wrote the rebuttal above and formally rescind my endorsement of Marilyn. In my experience she is a dishonest person and should not be trusted under any circumstances. Be wary of any dealings with her. She is not a person of good character.

Marilyn Crawford is a Woman of Integrity

AUTHOR: Christopher - (United States of America)

POSTED: Monday, July 16, 2012
This complaint is pure fiction. Marilyn Crawford is an award-winning entrepreneur and philanthropist with a legendary reputation for public service. She earned dozens of honors and awards for her involvement in various causes including the Larry King Cardiac Foundation, the Oprah Winfrey Growth Summits, the Madison Square Boys and Girls Club, National Women in Communications, the National Museum of African Art, the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts and the Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund.

Marilyn advised some of the top companies in America including CNN, Time Warner, Coca-Cola, Prudential, Ebony Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, the Oscars, FedEx, American Express, Essence Magazine, Broadband Capital and Prudential. She received an Entrepreneur of the Year Award from Ebony, the Hispanic American Chamber of Commerce Corporate Executive of the Year Award and was honored in 2010 by Forbes with the prestigious Touch Award for Entrepreneurism. The list of her accomplishments and awards literally fills several pages. Marilyn is a high achiever, widely respected for her character and commitment to excellence.

I reside in Portland, Oregon and previously worked with the Web developer listed in the complaint. He is unreliable and incompetent. He used a fake identity to post false and defamatory claims against Marilyn. His accusations are baseless including the ridiculous suggestion that he was driven to attempt suicide over a billing dispute. Marilyn was forced to seek legal protection against harassment. This Web developer is emotionally unstable and has no credibility. Marilyn Crawford is a role model. Seek her out if you want to ally yourself with a proven winner.
