In between this time I was reviewing the applicants to have to the site
I reviewed is proposal and decided to move forward with the deposit of $1,200.
After a week had passed I reached out to Vent Designs to get an update and was not getting many replies from him
About two days went by I called Vent designs from a different number and Chad picked up I asked him why I could not reach them and if they where dodging my phone calls?
"Chad replies no he was just busy" we talk and I tell him about another project That I have from another client for $13,000 and ask him if he would be able to do that project after he was done?
He then tells me yes and ask me when will the guy be ready to move i tell him on November the 8th he will have the money but I would prefer he wait until he finished my first client before starting to even move forward on that project. [continued below]....
about 5 days before the 8th of November I get a call from Chad telling me that he can not finish my first project for the $4,200 and would need way more to finish it about $15,000 and said he would give me a full refund for the amount that i gave him ($1,200)
Then I ask him when Can i get the money back for the first client and he tells me around the 8th Of November I say ok and tell my client the news
Chad then ask me if i saw still bringing the client for the $13,000 on the 8th I tell Him Yes.
as we get closer to the 8th Chad keeps asking me when will he be paying and I tell chad HE said the 8th but in return I ask Chad when will my client get their refund he said he was going to pay me the refund from the money that my new client was going to bring.
After Hearing this I tell him I dont like to mix two different clents things together because if one does not go thru then how will my client get his refund and I also tell him I will not have my other client go thru with the deal until my first client get a full refund.
He the ask to get on the phone with the client 3 way
November-8th- 2013: I get him on the phone with the client 3 way to talk about project
After we get off the phone Chad keeps sending me tex pressuring me about money and when he is going to send it.
Due to this i get a bad feeling about Chad and vent designs and decide not to go thru with bringing the new client to save the client from a bad dealing I then Google the company and see he does this to others and then decided not to have communications with Chad at all.
Nov-9th-2013: Chad Calls me and tex me over and over I do not respond after Chad get no response from me he goes on line and post two bad reviews about me on a site called www.ripoffreport.com and says that I take peoples money and run and not to hire me for work.
I found this out because a client of mine calls me and says they see a posting of me online and sent me a craiglist add with two links in it that leads to the ripoff report.
Nov-10th-2013: I contact ripoffrepoert and get information about a guy who posted the ad, his name was jacob I send an email and get a return email from this jacob. that states:
"Your reputation is everything in business. It's unfortunate that a reputation can be destroyed online when placed in the wrong hands.
Websites with such a high ranking will soon be the first thing people see when they search your brand "Clifton Futch" along with all associated accomplishes such as: Doreen Pastures, Major Power Productions, Futch Entertainment, Major Power Entertainment, etc.
All of which will be tarnished completely due to poor business ethics conducted on your part.
I hope you learn from this mistake and maybe recover from it years from now."
I then click on the persons email and it takes me to a google plus page about the person and after I click on that it takes me to a bio of ther person and the person states he has worked with Vent Design and even has thanks them for working on his site.
So i figure he took a clients email to write a fake report about me.
At this time he does not know I figured it out and it was him so later that day he send me a tex saying he saw the report and would love to help me take it down for $1,500 and make it go away.
I tell him I know it was him and ask him to take it down because its not true he tells me he has no clue how it got up there but he can once agin help take it down for a budget of $1,500
He also files a complaint with pay pal saying he paid me $1,200 for a product he did not receive and he wants to get his money back making pay pal flag me and put my account in the negative
Nov-10th-2013 9:00pm Chad send me over 800 tex messages from 800 different numbers at one time making my phone go off for a long period of time and making have to go delete each tex also setting up a fake gmail account called "email@example.com" and sending that in each tex over and over agin.
I write Pay pal back letting them know its a scam and he then writes back telling pay pal to google me and look at the articles to see that I am a scam artist the articles he posted.
