“Their % repeat rate says it all (24%), ie the number of clients that choose them again... We wasted 18 months with this provider. We split the project into 5 iterations. At every iteration there were incomplete tasks and substandard work. They promised to complete missed targets within the following iteration, if we left positive feedback. We did, and to this day many of those tasks are still incomplete. Choose at your peril, they purposely bid on small projects to portray a positive image. If you want anything with any long term stability, our advice is to avoid this provider. Aside from the missed targets, we had their work reviewed independently. It turned out they had coded thousands of lines long css code and incoherent modules. After spending almost $100,000 with them, we had to scrap everything and start from scratch, yes $100k down the drain. We like to stand by providers to give them a chance to prove themselves, this one left us high and dry and with a very sour taste.
“We are ready to provide any information about the arbitration that this client lost against us. But Elance system still allowed him to leave us negative feedback. Our company had rating 5.0, was 92% recommended with almost 1/4 of a million dollars in revenue on Elance before several negative feedbacks from this client. The only reason he is trying to spoil our reputation is that he got really mad when he lost the hearing at arbitration. It is even more offensive for him, as he was the one, who initiated the dispute. He was so sure he had the right to refuse from making payments for the work already done by us. At the hearing he tried all his best to blame us in poor quality of the code to hide his desire not to make payment, yet continuing using our code and even extending his system based on our code, so it was obviously to arbitration panel of three arbitrators all his claims were groundless. Finally, he had to release the payment he owned as it was proved our work was done properly and our code is working fine. ”
Freelancer Feedback Comments for Client:
“Be aware one day this client can change his decision to make payments for the work you have done already and will be ready to lie under oath, twist the facts, present false evidence and even threaten to get what he wants. He proved to be an expert scam, in Google we found much different info about this client and can share the links with anybody interested. Google popularity and reputation of this client speaks for himself, yet sometimes he might sound really nice. Do not repeat our mistakes, do not trust him. It is better to stay alert, if you ever decide working with him. ”
