Important Notice to All Clients of Advantage Technologies and Mike Williams.

Please take sometime to read all the complaints against the following parties who were entertwined and in a business relationship which involved a Con Artist and a Company that "Scammed" hudreds of thousands of dollars from Innocent "VICTIMS".

Check out all stories posted against: Advantage Technologies, Mike Williams, Advantage Rent to Own, LLC, and Richard Friedberg.

Then I would suggest going to the website @
(((Redacted)))
and seeing for yourself the Notice posted by Mike Williams which is holding this website for a Kings Ransom of $31,000.

This could happen to any client of Advantage Technologies and Mike Williams if and when a relationship goes sour and he decides to yank control over your website as a Get Even Tactic.

Mike Williams reacted without giving any care or thought to the people that actually invested considerable amounts of money for the use of that site that had nothing to do with the feud by and between Richard Friedberg and Mike Williams.

Mike Williams knew of this supposed Business Model and System of Advantage Rent to Own and he had full knowledge that 25,35,50 or more innocent people would be effected by his virtually shutting down the website and posting the notice on the Home page as he did and he simply DID NOT CARE!

If I were a client of Advantage Technologies and Mike Williams, I would cancel my contract and move my website to another hosting service and/or this could all happen to you as well.

These are my personal opinions and its up to each and every client to do their own research and make their own choices but I would consider all the written complaints on www.ripoffreport.com involving these entertwined parties and protect yourselves and protect your company and its assets.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

"Then I would suggest going to the website @ (((Redacted))) and seeing for yourself the Notice posted by Mike Williams which is holding this website for a Kings Ransom of $31,000."

Mike Williams: When the owner of a company violates the terms of a service contract, and refuses to pay a bill for website development AND website hosting this is what happens.  It is similar to a foreclosure.  You may buy a house and put $5,000 down.  And if the buyer fails to make the payments, the bank has the right to foreclose on the buyer.  This is a very similar case.  And let's all understand that the website down payment was a mere $500, and I didn't receive a monthly payment for over 3 months before I shut the website down.  The REALITY is I would have worked out a payment plan with Richard but he was not interested.  The $31,000 was the sum of all development and hosting charges.  I certainly did not need this money all at once.  But I needed to get paid SOMETHING for over a year's worth of website development work. 

Richard Friedberg committed fraud by telling customers he was the SOLE OWNER of a website that was never paid for.  I'm sorry for the victims of Richard Friedberg.  I was one of his victims myself.  He has a long history of this kind of activity and that can be verified through a background search.  I resent the fact that Denny is making statement about "what I knew".  I don't know him and he doesn't know me.  I only "KNEW" what I was told by others when it came to what Richard promised or failed to deliver.  As for Richard's history I only KNEW indirectly of a few complaints from the customers in the summer of 2008.  And none of the complaints were addressed to me.
I was not aware of the day to day management of the company as I never worked in the same office as Richard and I had very little interaction with Richard's customers. 

My customers in relation to website development know that I've been fair with them.  I don't "shut anyone down" without a valid reason.  I am simply a service provider.  It's similar to renting a house to someone and not paying the water bill.  Of course the water company is going to turn the water off and you can't blame the water company for this...
