I used Craigslist to find a flash developer. I was under the gun to have something completed as soon as possible. Andrew responded and sent over his portfolio. We started emailing and he seemed nice enough. His price was right and assured me that the work would be done in time.
I was under a heavy deadline to get the work completed. There was a major press launch of the site and without the flash elements that Andrew would be handling, there would be no site.
As per most of the posts on here, he requested we wire money to him. We have done a lot of work with out of town designers, so this didn't seem that unusual. We sent him the down payment, and he "started" on the job.
It didnt take very long before he started giving us the run around. First his computer crashed...then he had a fight with his girlfriend and had to go out of town....then he disappeared. I was stunned. I saw the deadline looming and nothing was coming back from him. Our graphic designer and I were having a fit. We were out the deposit money...no flash work and this filthy bastard had disappeared.
If you EVER get a response from Andrew Webber, [email protected], justwebber.net....BEWARE! He is a con artist. He will take your money and run.
I hope he burns in hell! He is lower than the filth you find under the scum on the bottom of your shoe.
