40 50 Media Ltd previously known as Tricycle Media Limited are scammers

40 50 Media #1161398
It really saddens me to learn that more and more people are being scammed by this company after all these years. I really wish people read reviews before giving their hard earned cash to fraudsters like this. That was one experience I took away from my dealings with Alan and his company. I am sorry to read that you were also scammed by Alan and his company. Of course I would be willing to provide testimony and evidence against this company if more people want to go after him and his company. I think there is one here and others in my initial post (see link above). So sorry about your experience. At least you got some sort of service albeit it dismal. I got nothing and they took my money. Although I have put that experience behind me, I would gladly help anyone interested in pursuing Alan and his company through the courts. I know how that felt when they scammed me especially being a small business where every penny counts. So sad.

Hi,
It really saddens me that more and more people are getting scammed by this company. Sorry to learn that you were one of their victims. If you need my help feel free to get in touch. Alan and Fiona's thieving has gone on for long enough. Either contact me or leave details (safely and wisely) so I can contact you. I am willing to provide any testimony /evidence to support your case. Good luck!

Tricycle Media are scammers - do not use their services

That is so sad. It seems to me that these thieves haven't changed. I created a tread for 4050 Media over a year ago and linked it to this tread. I did that to enable potential victims know that they are the same company and stop them from becoming victims like many of us here. I wish people review companies by typing the company name followed by the word "reviews" in Google. It would safe them so much hassle. I am so sorry you have to go through this. I was exactly in your position over 2 years ago and I know how heart breaking it can be especially if you are just starting out (or even if you are an established small business). These people are really evil. I wish you all the best in whatever action you decided to take.

I have never posted on Daily Observer's forum nor do I read that paper, so I was quite intrigued when Alan made the false accusation above and provided a link that does not work. After thorough digging, I have managed to locate the article see link below. The article is actually buried in Daily Observer's archive not the bad link provided by Alan. Poor Alan! That person is not even me. The name Tamsir and the surname Joof are very common and if one looks at the writing style of that person in comparison to mine on Pissed Consumers, you will notice that they are quite different from each other. For start, I never ever write sentences in capital letters. Wouldn't do it even if you pay me. Too unnecessary. It is also quite unbusiness-like. Alan, in your desperation to try to seek revenge you actually took somebody else's post on Daily Observer and passed them off as mine. I bet you were so excited when you saw that post thinking you can come back at me with that. However, you lack attention to detail. You know or should know my style of writing after our email correspondences and my threads here on Pissed Consumers. You should have spotted the different styles of writing. Another impo...

I have just seen the link in the Daily Observer. It is actually stored in their archive (see link below). That person is not even me. Lol. Do you know how common the name and surname Tamsir and Joof is? I was taken back when Alan said that said that I posted on that paper. I know I don't read that paper and have never participated in their forum so was somewhat shocked and had to dig deeper to find out what is Alan going on about. Here the actual link to that person's post: http://archive.observer.gm/europe/united-kingdom/article/2008/2/8/re-uk-visa-reject
Alan, this name is very common and it also shows your desperation to try to dig out dirt on me in order to seek revenge. Sadly you got the wrong Tamsir Joof. Lol. Further, that is not my style of writing as evident in all my post here. You see what desperation does to you? Lol!

By the way, the asterisk (*) is -c-on (meaning extortion). Something else came to my mind after reading Alan's post again. I think the supposed company Alan is referring to is his defunct company Tricycle Media Limited. Yes, that company that was closed down for fraudulent activities is the "well know and trusted company" according to Alan (the founder). You see how delusional some people are? Lol! I didn't extort money from your company Alan. I sent you a letter threatening to take you to court as you have taken my money and failed to provide the service I paid for. I then sent you another letter asking a full refund on with a deadline and to charge daily interest including additional cost you have caused me to incur thanks to your fraudulent activities. In the end, I decided to just let this go because you are not worth it. I didn't get any money from you. You on the other hand took my money and failed to deliver a service you were contracted to do. All this is in my initial post - see link above. I will not waste any more time on you. Tricycle Media is a "well know and trusted company"? Please don't make me laugh. How delusional!

What? Are you kidding me? I have never ever posted on a Daily Observer forum in my entire life. I don't even read that paper never mind your false accusations. You are only angry because I outed you and your company hence why you are trying to get revenge by any means necessary. If you are going to accuse me of something, please make sure it is the truth. Your link does not even exist. And please tell me which company did I tried to extort money from. LOOOOOOOOOOOOL! Please do tell everyone here. Don't keep it a secret. You have my permission to name the supposed the company here. It would be very easy for me to then approach that company with your false accusations and paste their replies on this thread word for word. I knew you were devious but never knew you were this bad. You will go to any length to repair your damaged reputation. I gave a negative review about your company because I was scammed. And as evident in my original thread see link above, it appeared that I was not the only one who was scammed by you, your colleague Fiona and your company. I didn't give you a negative review for the sake of it i.e. just to damage your business. Prior to using "your services", I didn'...

Hi Steve, I am so sorry you had problems with this company. It is so sad that many people are going through the same thing with Tricyle Media Limited now called 40 50 Media Ltd. When I first outed this disgusting company over a year ago, I though I was the only one having problems with these scam artists (Fiona Jefferies and Alan Wareham). I was surprised by the number of people who have experienced the same problem (not to mention those who have not commented at all). What you have described about these people is absolutely true. I and many people here had the same problem : childish behaviour, legal threats, just to name a few. You are lucky you were able to claw back as many people, myself included were not that lucky. What I've found out is that these people like to target small / start up businesses. I just hope that small businesses check out the reviews of any company before contracting them for their services.

Tricycle Media Limited #804246
Hi there, I am sorry you also fell victim to these people's scam. It was I who initially named this company here on Pissed Consumer in March 2013. See my review titled: "Tricycle Media Limited - Tricycle Media are scammers - do not use their services"
It was in that review that another victim gave the new name they are now trading under. This company is now called 40 50 Media Ltd. It is run by the same people who operated the defunct Tricycle Media Limited. Do not be fooled. Avoid them like the plague. It is so sad that many people are being scammed by this company. There are 3 or 4 reviews about this company here on Pissed Consumer, most of them bad.

They are crooked to the core - take your money then do nothing

Tricycle Media Limited #804244
In March 2013 I named this company here on Pissed Consumers. If you have looked at my review about this company titled: "Tricycle Media Limited - Tricycle Media are scammers - do not use their services", you might have escaped the trapping of this company. In that review, another poster (hacked) who also suffered the same faith gave out the new name of this company. They are now trading as 40 50 Media Ltd. I can't believe the number of people scammed by this company. When I first outed this company, I thought it was only me they've scammed apparently not.

Thanks for giving us the heads up hacked. Although Tricycle Media Limited is showing up in Google search, their site is down (or appears to be down). However 40 50 Media seems to be working. They are probably trying separate themselves from their criminal past (Tricycle Media Limited).

Hello Alan, or is it Fiona this time? Why would I or other members of the public you have scammed waste our time reviewing your fraudulent company which according to one commentator here went under and you are now trading under a different name? Why would we waste our time if what we say was not true? We are here because you have scammed us. Not only have you failed to deliver according to the contract, you have also ran away with our money. It was I who threatened to take you to court after you failed to deliver and stole my money. I decided not to bother because you are not worth it and karma always come back to those who do wrong. Judging by one or two commentators here, it looks like karma came early for you.

That said, I don't know why you are lying trying to give the impression that I lost the case, when there was no legal case. I decided not to take you to court as stated above.
A contract is a contract and I have never asked you to produce a 107 page site. What use would I have for that? Any additional information given was as an PDF downloads as agreed or to give you an idea how I wanted the website to look as requested in the brief - e.g. the look of

Isn't it amazing how you haven't got a log in detail or a name for that matter. My experiences with this company as provided were very detailed. Not only did I gave the dates, people and their position, but my account was very explicit. In fact I'm the only one here using their real name's initials and I did that for a reason. Tricycle knows exactly who I am. Not only did I use my initials, my detailed account with dates, etc will definitely let them know who I am. I still have all the emails and letters to prove everything that I have said here. This would not come as a surprise to them because I have already told them this several times. Furthermore, when I submitted my initial post on pissed consumer, pissed consumer did asked me whether I would like them to send an email notification to Tricyle so that they can respond to the complaint. I chose yes. If I was sneaky and wanted to bad mouth them here without given them the opportunity to know what is being said here, I would have chosen no. You see, that is the difference between them and I. Now what is your story? Why are you here? You have added nothing to this thread other than accuse others of not having a name, when you don't either. "Realistic Opinion" :)

If you have the money, time and patience, I would take them to court and recover all the money they have taken from you. But only do it if you have these three. Otherwise, it is not worth the hassle. What goes around comes around. I now just leave them to their devices. At that time, for a small business like mine just starting out, that amount of money which may not be a lot to some was a lot of money to me. I totally understand where you are coming from. I was in the same state you are about 2 years ago. Not only did I not get my money or website, but I had to end up paying more money to do the work they were paid to do. For any small business with limited budget starting out and worried about website design, I would urge them to research these website developers/designers very careful. Personally, I think you are better off starting out with one of these free do-it-yourself web design companies and when you are ready and have purchased your domain, you can simply attach your domain and move your web address. Not only is it more financial efficient, you also have freedom to design your website however you like (in accordance with the free templates available). You control the cre...

:) or :cry Good that you had a wonderful experience "Happy Tricycle Media Customer". "Proactive" in getting your money yes. But not delivering the goods. You don't know what my contract with them was. There was no assumption or over expectation on my part. I expected them to do exactly what I paid for. It was agreed in writing. There was an offer. I accepted the offer. Paid my money in consideration to what was offered and expected them to carry out their side of the bargain. They failed. Not only did they failed to perform what they were bound to do. They also took my money and refused to return it. I called that theft.

Tricycle Media could so easily have rectified both of these complaints - why didn't they simply apologise profusely for the delay , and instantly produce a fab website that would have blown our socks off. Then, while we might have been p'd off at the delay, we would at last have a functioning website. Why don't they still do so? To show what excellent work they claim to be capable of?
It would seem to be the obvious way to defuse this whole situation.
