NON-PAYING CLIENT

Is the complaint you are filing related to the Internet or an online service? Yes Do you have pertinent documents in paper form? Yes Information about the Individual/Business that victimized you Business Name: Digital One Marketing Name: Anthony Carson Gender: M Address: Digital One Marketing Johnson City, Tennessee Area City: Johnson City State: Tennessee Country: United States Zip Code/Route: Phone number: Email Address: tonycarson@***.com Other Identifiers Web Site: http://www.digitalonemarketing.com Other: Skype: atc103 Description of the Incident Describe in your own words how you have been victimized. I have been trying to apply online as a professional web designer for some time 'cause I have been working as such since year 2001 through a US company as well in Tampa, Florida USA for over 4 years... but I didn't have any sort of problem with them like this one. This is the first time that I have been victimized of not being paid after rendering an honest work/service. I applied through Craigslist.com.ph where I saw the ad of Mr. Carson (See ad below): His exact ad on Craigslist: POSTED ON Carigslist.com.ph: =========================================== Web Designer (Phillipines) Im needing a website designer ASAP pay negotible plus some paid time off must know how to meet deadlines. Full time work Location: Phillipines Compensation: Negotible Principals only. Recruiters, please don't contact this job poster. Please, no phone calls about this job! Please do not contact job poster about other services, products or commercial interests. [Specific details on how, why, and when you believe you were defrauded:] 1. I was hired on February 6, 2013 and our conversation was through email. I started working then. I have all the work-hours report in MS Excel format which I sent him. (FILE IN EXCEL - I CAN PROVIDE WHEN NEEDED) *With those work-hours I spent he was supposed to pay me a total of ($174.00 + $120.00) US$294.00 last Friday (FEB. 22, 2013) - based on the contract I signed [where he didn't sign at all despite my request... I just trusted him]. Yesterday, (FEB. 24, 2013 - SUNDAY) I logged in to my Paypal account expecting to see my pay... but there was none. He mentioned, after my follow-up, that I will receive my pay on that Friday (FEB. 22, 2013 through Paypal). I tried to log in to the cPanel of both my projects (http://www.carrollcreekdental.com/cpanel & http://www.tyloc.com/cpanel) but I can no longer access both. I tried and tried but can't get in anymore. I still tried to contact him through email and even left messages in his Skype account.... but to no avail. No replies, nothing. Even before doing this complaint, I sent him another request for clarification as to what happened.... and still waiting. I did an honest job w/ excellent results. A simple guy working for a living for my family. I did my part... trusting my employer to his part in the process to pay for the services rendered to him and his company.

OMG! It's a good thing I asked him to pay me for the hours I worked as soon as I'm done with my work.

I didn't grant him access to download the articles I made until he has paid me.

Thank you for informing the public. I hope you get a better employer.

Hi there Mina. Are you pertaining to the same person who cheated me? He is Anthony "Tony" Carson of Tennessee - Digital One.

Good for you he paid you. That's the right thing to do. Just remember, he never intended to pay me. I just trusted him but he never did the same.

Well I Prayed about it already and whatever may happen to him and his business, it's all because of him.

Thanks a lot Mina!
