    Default Paul Reilly from MSW - Be Careful !!

    To all my affiliate brothers and sisters that search for SEO solutions! I would like to warn you from the following left guy! his name is PAUL REILLY - in first look he seems like a very nice guy, very Polite and convincing, but after being a client of him and his SEO company - MSW (MEDIA SKUNK WORKS) - I'm telling you this guy is no less than a thief!

    He will promise to make you millionaires but he will disappear with the money, he will never call you back, will never give you links that he promised, he won't answer you email etc'

    BE CAREFULL FROM THIS GUY, I heard many more people in the industry are looking for him.
    My lawyer is now handing this, but I just wanted to warn everybody in here that are searching for SEO help with this guy, save your money!

    I will publish more details including full email and contract soon so you'll see what I'm talking about. you'll probably see him in the gaming Industry and on many conventions - STAY AWAY!

    Here's a scam article with his picture that you can recognize him that I've published in my site:
    http://www.classicasinos.com/scam/

    I've also filed a complaint with the police asking him to arrest him for quick judgment as soon as he landed in Israel.

    AGAIN - BE CAREFULL FROM THIS GUY! don't do any business with him, he will take your money as he took mine.

    I will chase this guy all my life and return the money i've worked for soooooo hard, I will update in this post on the following weeks/months/years on every step so everybody can see what a man he his.

    Yes it's not a good thing to happen, but...
    If your handing over "about" £60,000, why did you not run due diligence (character checks) on this guy & or the company name?

    And, why didn't the penny drop after 6 months. Why did it take you 3 years to realise you'd been scammed?
    Surely you didn't believe his BS for three (3) long years!

    He is a super smooth talker, and he always said "it take time for google algorithms" to work... we need to wait.
    I was stupid but honest and a good client. Now I understand that he doesn't have a clue in SEO, he is just taking money from people.

    I also got some private massages here that many people are looking for him, and he also avoids taxes .

    Hi balagan9

    sorry to hear about your experience, we received notification from Companies House shortly before Christmas that the company had appointed an administrator.

    Just thought I would let you know.

    Thanks,

    Sarah

    I know that thanks, but even though - the personal service of PAUL REILLY is ZERO!
    As I said, be careful of this guy no matter what. he is a super smooth talker but delivers nothing. he isn't not professional at all in SEO

    Sad to hear this, as my personal experiences with Paul were all positive. Met him a few times face to face and although most of the work I paid for was done by his staff (Adam and Piotr), he always seemed to give a ****.

    True, the work they did for me back in 2014 was technical rather than SEO but they were vital in helping me get out of a Google Manual Action. I honestly think I'd still be in trouble if it wasn't for what MSW did, in terms of explaining and resolving the underlying technical and linking problems.

    But they're in administration, so it seems things have gone sour since then.

    In terms of 'due diligence', the following articles were typical of the profile he had at the time: http://calvinayre.com/2013/08/29/bus...areer-amateur/

    Hope you manage to get some of your money back.

    As you said, Paul gives a **** , Piotr and Adam are ok I have no complaints to them.
    The problem is Paul and BTW he also ****** Piotr and Adam, try talking to them and see what I mean.

    Paul just looks nice and as I said he is a super smooth talker.

    He is also the owner of Johnnybet? I have had many horrible experience with that company as well as some good ones.

    Were you scammed? Can you explain what happen? They did scam me a while back but I won the battle and ended up with an extra 1000 GBP for my effort.

    http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/business/news/15780003.SEO_agency_in_administration/

    SEVEN jobs have been lost and four staff members have walked out as administrators are called in at a York SEO agency.
    Since the appointment of administrators at Media Skunk Works on November 24, 11 employees have left the firm, including seven redundancies.
    The business, which is best known for pioneering SEO work primarily in the gaming industry, was issued a winding up order following a dispute with one of its largest customers.
    The joint administrators, Mike Jenkins and Dave Broadbent of Begbies Traynor, are currently exploring numerous options to secure the future of the business and safeguard the jobs of the remaining ten staff plus that of the director.
    Mr Jenkins said: “We are currently trying to keep it trading while we look at options in terms of either restructuring its debts or selling the business.
    “The best way forward is yet to be decided, but in the mean time we are keeping it operational.”
    Media Skunk Works was founded in 2012 by Paul Reilly in his basement at Zero House in York.
    Today the SEO agency, which specialises in work for the online gaming and casino industries, is based the IT Centre within York Science Park at the University of York.
    The business, which also helps companies quickly and easily form scalable in-house SEO departments, operates a range of departments including a client services team, a content team comprised of specialist, trained journalists, a development, linguists and translation services, social media marketing and presence management personnel.
    The firm’s innovation laboratory’s services cover many areas of player acquisition and retention, most notably data driven SEO intelligence, scalable content marketing and outreach services.
    Founder Paul Reilly regularly speaks at international industry conferences on the topic of SEO.
