WARNING! DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS MAN.....

Larry McElhinney is the WORST Business man I have ever dealt with. He solicited our business and once he had everything half way completed he somewhat trained our office in about 30 minutes to finish the process. If you had any questions, we were not able to contact him. He would not return telephone calls or respond to emails until he wanted to sell us more services. Several times our company email account was down and we would call him over and over again, but once again no response from him. He is rude and always sarcastic as though you're bothering him if you have a question. He charged our credit card without our permission indicating he spoke with me on the telephone at $1.00 per minute for 30 minutes, which was not correct. He never received authorization to keep our credit card # on file. The next time he tried to charge our credit card it was denied because we cancelled the card #. He sent an email requesting the credit card information and we called him back but he refused to talk to the young lady and the next day he cancelled our email services and would not return our calls or respond to our email messages; therefore we lost all our emails and was without email service in our office for two days.

Similar story.

He is a crook, plain and simple.

Won't return any phone calls, emails...

We never should have paid him up front.

It is sad how someone can operate as such a like this and we have virtually no recourse whatsoever.

DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH HIM!!!!!

Poor customer service

Abusive E-mail and Spams

In brief, solicited us via E-mail for service we don't need, was abusive when we told him to go away. Apparently others have had problems too. There's reviews about his vulgarity (and what's worse, his lack of creativity with his vulgarity) Full story: http://imgur.com/sDUjBjZ In brief, solicited us via E-mail for service we don't need, was abusive when we told him to go away.

Larry/Health haven

STAY AWAY FROM LARRY McELHINNEY @***.This was a horrible experience, he got my $730 kinda finished the website and then expected me to learn how to finish the rest on my own. I involved my attorney who was quite gracious and just wanted to sort it out, and Larry started sending me emails asking me "How much crack do you smoke for c>&^k" and may more lovely ridiculous responses. I had American Express open a dispute, got my money back and made sure he had no more access to our files. He has continued to send a barrage of horrible cyber bullying emails. He is a fraud, fake and a horrible person with no regard for anyone. I will sue him

Healthhaven.com Bait and Switch Scam
Healthhaven.com or Health Haven and its thieving owner Larry McElhinney are currently ripping people off by promising fraudulently to provide advertising services that provide visitors and high quality backlinks to your website while they are banned from Google's search engine. Here is their pitch : Pay-Per-Dayâ„¢ Advertiser Benefits...Advertise your entire website for as little as $1 per day. Our unique system uses a proprietary technique called 'Indexed Advertising'.

Your Ads will then be display next to search results based on the keywords entered by visitors. The system also allows you to create your own ads, if you wish.All of your Ads are linked directly to pages on your website. This provides you with targeted incoming traffic plus valuable incoming links to your site, known as backlinks.The high quality incoming links created by our system are very likely to have a positive effect on your site's rankings at search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing and many others. You can learn more about this and other search engine optimization (SEO) techniques by reading this document hosted by Google.STOP paying for clicks!

This option is subject to approval. Now, if you do a search for Healthhaven.com or Health Haven on Google you will notice the site does not show up on Google. The reason the site does not show up is that Google has removed the site from its search engine for violation Google terms of service. As such the website has no way to provide you anything to visitors because they were removed from Google. Second, Healthhaven.com or Health Haven promises "The high quality incoming links created by our system are very likely to have a positive effect on your site's rankings at search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing and many others." They specific mention Google which controls nearly 70% of all searches. Yet, they are banned from Google and thus their links will HURT you, not help. Healthhaven.com or Health Haven is fully aware that they are banned in Google and yet still fraudulently steal money for services they can not and do not provide. They are a den of thieves. I was told after informing them that they were banned from Google and therefore can not provide the promised services that they would charge me for the services anyway and further if I charged back, they would fight the charge back. Further Larry McElhinney said he would turn me over to a debt collector if he lost the charge back.

I've used this service for 2 years and am very happy with it. He gets back to us very quickly by phone to answer my questions and has been very helpful.

Sorry you had such a bad experience.

I'm a real customer and not paid to say this.

HEALTHHAVEN OR HEALTHHAVEN.COM IS ONE BIG LYING AND CONIVING COMPANY. LARRY (PSYCHOPATH) PROMISED TO UPGRADE MY WEBSITE FOR $1/DAYTO BE PAID IN FULL, ONE YEAR $365 AHEAD OF COMPLETION OF THE PROJECT.

HE SOUNDED SINCERE & KNOWLEDGABLE, BUT WHEN, WHAT I PAID HIM FOR, FAILED, HE REFUSED TO CORRECT THE ERROR. REMEMBER, I PAID HIM FOR THE JOB, I CALLED & EMAILED MULTIPLE TIMES, NO ANSWER. FINALLY, AFTER WEEKS, HE DECIDED TO RESPOND AND DEMAND I PAY HIM MORE FOR THE SAME JOB THAT I ALREADY HAD PAID. ONCE HE HASYOUR $, HE WON'T RESPOND TO YOU ANYMORE.

I DON'T KNOW HOW, BUT HE NEEDS TO BE STOPPED. I DON'T LIVE IN SCOTTSDALE, OR ELSE I WOULD SHOW UP AT HIS WORK OR WHERVER HE IS DOING HIS SO CALLED BUSINESS. FOR THOSE WHO READ THIS, DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT ALLOW HIM NEAR YOU, RUN AS FAR AS YOU CAN.

HE WILL PROMISE YOU THE WORLD, AND ONCE HE HAS YOUR CC#, HE IS DONE WITH YOU. HE NEEDS TO BE REPORTED TO THE AUTHORITIES.

Horrible service. Promises you three websites if you pay in full and does not deliver.

He does not respond to emails.

Will charge an hour for services that take 15 minutes. Do not do business with him.
