Rip off/ ***

If you fancy getting ripped off by a web designer then this is the business for you.

The office is run by a guy called Mike. I paid him to build my ecommerce store using Shopify.

After I paid him all contact stopped, I chased him to find out when my website would get built and he asked me for more money to get the ball rolling. I said no as he already has taken £700 of me as a deposit.

It seems that this guy is out to rip people of and he doesn't give a hoot.

I have since approached another design agency and they managed to get the job done with no problems.

Avoid this one like the plague!!!

Inspira Digital stole my money

Hired them to complete website redesign and adwords optimization. They communicatied at first but then quit talking to me when I asked for a second time when they would start working.

The last communiaction was telling me there were some stopidges and they were basically behind. Fine I understand but then you completely stop talking to me. I emailed several peaople in the company and have gotten no response.

Paid them on Feb 16 2012 and still no communication, no work or refund of deposit! So here I am making sure they know and everyone knows they scammed this stay at home mom out of $600 that could have done a lot for her family!

yes, they have refunded my downpayment and apologies have been made. Too bad I had to make a stink for it to happen.


Cassandra has been issued a full refund through PayPal and apologies have been made to the client directly.

No one was ever scammed and a full refund has been made, there were delays due to circumstances out side of the control of Inspira Digital in the time Cassnadra was waiting for her work that impacted the time lines of several projects not just Cassnadras all of which have been completed with great feedback from the clients.

Inspira Digital - UK Web Designer Scam

Inspira Digital ( - Run by a guy called Mike Harding, with a so called designer called Mike Fryers (probably the same guy as well). This company Inspira Digital is a UK web designer company based in the United Kingdom.

Our company commissioned them to design a theme and brand pack for our website and online store business (925 SILVER LLC).

They charge thousands of dollars , our project was ($3000) three thousand US dollars - and they presented excellent work in their portfolio and samples of web design work in the UK that they showed us.

However, when time came to produce the web design and show us the visual samples - their web design mockups look like something out of template monster, or very terrible web design work.

As you can see for yourself in the link below:

This design looks like this scam UK web designer company outsources work to 3rd world countries such as indian web designers, or Philippians - and charges premium web design prices.

When told we don't want to work with them anymore, they demand payment for "work" done - even after we have paid them 30% in deposits PRIOR to them starting any web design work.

This company is terrible, and a scam - do not give any of your web page design or home page design work to them !

Mike Harding is a scammer !!!

If you look at Mike Hardings comment on this page you will notice he can't even use correct Grammar. If he can't even put together a decent paragraph, then what does it say about the quality of his websites. lol.


Inspira Digital Ripped me off big time. I forked out over £1000 for a website that had broken images and had no on-page SEO.

When I told Mike Harding this, all he would do is fog me off and tell me he would sort it. guess what? they never did. After speaking to some friends I have realized that I am one of many ripped off customers.

In the end I paid someone half the price of what Inspira Charged and they did a job that was 100 times better.

STAY AWAY from this business. What a ***!!!


This was no way a scam, the client was virtually impossible to work with, the same designer that worked on the work he liked worked on his project. We invoiced fairly for the work that was done and repeatedly made efforts to again understand there requirements at which point the customer became abusive
