Bob Chapman of Carolina Web Marketing took my money for a deposit on search engine optimization (SEO) and did not comlete the work. I paid him on Feb 19, 2014 for an invoice HE estimated would take 8 hours and it is still not comlete. He was "busy playing disc golf" yesterday (March 10, 2014). Today, he "has too much to do for other clients" to get to my work. I'm not sure how 8 hours equals 3 weeks, but STAY away from this guy. He will RIP YOU OFF! 

 I have gone back and forth with him several times, even offered him more money just to complete the job asap. I guess he would rather take your money and Pay to play in an Ultimate Frisbee league. 

 Also he felt it necessary to tell me the details of the lawsuit with another client recently that he lost and how he doesn't have the money to pay it. He wanted me to pay it for him and he would do "extra" work for me. Glad I didn't do that!

See my response to this email from Bob below:

Dude,

I'm not a dude, I'm a client thank you.

I still can't believe you would post anything about me in RR after all I have done for you.  How much $ have you earned since I became your webmaster?  If last year was $100K (as you claimed), the total must be near $250K since 2007!

I never claimed to earn $100K, I have no idea where you got that. I have probably earned an average of $N/A/year with this business with last year being the best year ever. By the way, you WERE NOT my webmaster last year (2013) and my website had an average placement of the #4 spot in a google search, so.... WeddingWire kicked butt for me! =) But yes Bob, I would attribute at least some of the earnings from 2007 until early 2012 to you if you would like.

I helped your business change location, from coast to coast no less, and did a transition out of a non-regional domain.  Not easy to do, much less how it went (without a hitch).  How can you forget all that or take it all completely for granted.  

You say this as if I owe you a favor?? I paid you to do that Bob?? Upfront if you have forgotten (when you desperately needed money because you had a warrant out for your arrest), and I haven't' forgotten that.

You clearly don't realize (or forgot) most business websites are a money pit and don't bring in any profit or a slim one!

That statement may be true for websites/companies that offer a product rather than a service Bob. My website has pretty much always brought my business a profit.

I made the mistake to trust you and treating you like a brother (dumb of me) even after you tried to rip me off by refusing to pay 50% balance of a project right after I uploaded files.  You actually thought you'd get away with stealing my work!

True, dumb of you, I have always maintained that we are not friends, we're doing business together. I didn't refuse to pay your the 50% deposit, I simply made you wait for it much like you make your clients wait for their work. 

You clearly forgot to be first in line for my work you'll pay up front.  Sometimes that means pre-paying months ahead!

I'm sorry, I assume since you verbally told me if I paid you a deposit, I would be first in line? My apologies for misunderstanding that statement by you.

Your impatience is amazing - worse than your kids screaming when you ignore them!  You do sometimes act like a spoiled toddler.

I don't understand where I have impatience with you Bob. We started a backlinks project that I paid for in December of 2011 that you still haven't even completed. Pathetic at best are your promises Bob. With heydjVA, you quoted me 8 hours to SEO my home page over 3 weeks ago, and to my knowledge, that still wasn't done. So please tell me where I'm impatient??

What happened to you saying that a suit under $500 wasn't worth it?  Scott lied and was very deceptive to court/judge.  Now, you want to do the same?  How did you come to the conclusion that helping an enemy of mine was a good idea?

I didn't help Scott, I simply reached out to someone who had a bad experience with YOU. If you didn't want me to know about Scott, you shouldn't have divulged all that info. 

When you realized I saw your RR post while I was working on your update and did not delete all your files and/or load a hidden virus (like Scott's old webmaster did), I would think you'd THANK me for being ethical and not retaliating on you.

Um I'm not going to respond to that ridiculous statement other than it simply shows just how immature you really are Bob.

Instead, it's like you never realized you left yourself WIDE OPEN for retaliation (which anybody else would have done)!
 
How can you possibly justify your actions?  There's no way to do so.  I sure want to hear your explanation (you coward!).

I justify my actions because I'm in the right. You quoted me a certain amount of time to do an 8 hour job. It's been 3 weeks with no completion on the job.

Greed?  Childish impatience?  Pure stupidity maybe?  There is literally NO logical or sane explanation possible at all.
 
Posting to RR is supposed to be a last resort, not something you do when your webmaster isn't anywhere by his phone.
 
Why have you let your other webmasters (most incompetent) who CLEARLY ripped you of (Doug for 1 example) get away with murder and yet you want to come after ME?  My only conclusion is you're truly 1 VERY Stupid M******!

Again...immaturity exposes itself...

Let me hear your half-a** excuse(s) - if you can...  
 
Karma is a b*** and you better not make it worse!

I will probably post this response on Rip Off Report. I'll definitely keep it to submit to the BBB.

I have edited the curse words in this rebuttal, but rest assured they were not edited when he sent me this email. =)

I never claimed to earn $100K, I have no idea where you got that. I have a very mid to low middle class earnings off this business with 2013 being the best year I've ever had. Oddly you were'nt my webmaster that year...But yes Bob, I would attribute at least some of the earnings from 2007 until early 2012 to you if you would like.

And please don't bring my children into this. They are not ignored, I simply understand how to multitask. Maybe you should figure that out as well. =)

I didn't help Scott, I simply reached out to someone who had a bad experience with YOU. If you didn't want me to know about Scott, you shouldn't have divulged all that info voluntarily. You need to keep your drama to yourself
