As in my title, i really don't like writing this sort of thread as it doesn't add value to my business but i have to do it for the sake of my fellow warriors here.
Just to let you know, i have gone to the stage of going "paypal resolution", anybody has tried paypal resolution and got back your money??
I hope you can listen to me as I'm really pissed off with this kind of people!
Here's the STORY:
Recently I have gone into a graphic design deal with a warrior (Note: This warrior is NOT from WSO).
The start was very good and a lot of promises (Hint: Damn, I even wrote him a testimonial initially, is there a way to delete it??)...as i do not paid him anything, and the service was good and fast! As his design was ok, i asked him to do more things and we agreed on a price on a certain scope of works, and I paid him full based on trust, he promised me "the sky and the moon" (by the way, i'm shocked that he would go to risk his name for the price of less than $60...)
Things start to change when I paid him, initially i thought he is just busy and he got some busy works, first time ok...
2 days later, i contact him again...and this time round he said sorry he forgot...and he will send me the files in a while....And wait and wait...nothing came....
5 days more...nothing came...
I emailed him....no reply
Here's the sign that I realised he is totally ignoring me!
I message him again, this time he was online, but he turned off his instant messaging when he saw my message...damn!
And I decided to send him another email reminding him if he's really busy, just let me know and we can work out something...don't just hide from me and get nothing done.
And, I saw him online at WF, and PM'ed him twice...no response..
I wrote him another email, no reply...
After that i decided to write him a last email....this time round i gave him a dateline in the email, because i cannot be waiting forever!
True enough! Nothing came by the dateline!
I felt that I have given him more than enough time for a simple job...and he is totally ignoring me.
I felt that I have trusted the WRONG person, i have a gut feeling that he would never email me again and i should just forget about it and move on!
Here's the conclusion:
From this i conclude that although most warriors are honest, but NOT all, so the moral of the story is BEware of who you work with...before you part with your money, open your eye..
But sometime it's hard to tell, and this warrior has told me that he used a pen name....he could still be around with other names, i don't know....and he could create another pen name....
The shocking truth is, he risk himself for less than $60 bucks! And lost a potential customer that he can do business with for more future jobs...What can $60 bucks do for you?? It doesn't make you a millionaire...
Oh ya...he also told me that he is planning a WSO soon....Watch ya warriors!
Disclaimer to this warrior:
IF you're reading this thread now, and you think you could still make it up for me...i'm willing to negotiate, I'm not here to make enemy but you have made me write this thread to protect other people.
Thanks for reading this long story post!
Have a great day,
