Taoti Abusive Behavior NonPayment Bait and Switch

I was retained by Taoti Creative of Washington DC, the long term authorized agent of 3dadvisors, to do consulting work improving their php/mysql database. I did 80 hours of well documented Php programming work which their emails acknowledge work just fine and have been paid a total of 250.00. The refuse to pay the balance while noting no functional problems with the software which meets all specs. The agent was unbelievably demeaning, abusive and hostile all the time. Refusing to pay event the most modest bills for completed mileposts. Quoted from one of his emails,... "Last chance to swallow your pride" (while offering $150.00 for a $1000 invoice) and " Besides, your stuff doesn't work anyway (as usual)". Except there was nothing wrong with the page he was talking about and the sofware works perfectly. Comments like " Your word is worthless to me " appear repeatedly and frequently in a long string of emails. They were unable to properly configure a server to present the php, and still blamed me after I installed and ran it on not one, but two other servers they did not maintain. 3dadvisors has had an agent relationship with Taoti for over four years and is advisor to the very largest and wealthiest investors in the country. They specialize in insider trading information that is in my opinion borderline ethical, it should all be public. They do everything in their power to hide from the public (Google both 3dadvisors and 3dadvisors.com to find an interesting puzzle). They refuse to honor the commitments of their authorized agent, and unbelievably assist in cheating working class software developers of their justly earned fees. It is the arrogance of the Masters of the Universe in spades. See Also Taoti Creative
