To anyone interested in having a website developed, please be wary of Diane Denise Frierson (or "Diane Denise")! She appears to be very nice at first so, although quite inarticulate due to her lack of education (evident also by her poor reading comprehension and complete lack of ability to write a coherent sentence), you might find yourself wanting to give her a chance because you simply want to help people who seem to want to help themselves.
We were very wrong about Diane Denise Frierson! At first she moved quite quickly and efficiently... (SO WE THOUGHT) giving us nightly progress reports and actually showing us (WHAT SEEMED TO BE PROGRESS), however, we discovered that this was only to fool us into paying her on time.
Her accepted bid for this project was $2500.00 broken into 3 payments of $750.00, with each payment due upon completiion of each work week and the final payment of $250.00 due upon transfer of site from her server to ours and final approval by us of her work and completion of the project.
Each week we paid her, as she was able to do just enough work to show us "progress". As it turned out, that work was simply comprised of very easy-to-install WordPress plugins that we could have done ourselves! The real trouble came when we needed her to complete the ecommerce portion of our website. This is the part that requires actual programming skills. This is where we realized that Diane Denise Frierson was and is a FRAUD.
Not only does she not have any real programming skills, the attempts she made at coding were full of mistakes and misspellings and simply did not function. She actually damaged our site with her lack of ability, leaving us with less than what we had when she was hired... while adding an extra 3-4 months delay to our launch date! Diane Denise has cost us THOUSANDS of dollars with her incompetence and fraudulent behavior!
Diane Denise Frierson's bid was to take aproximately 3 weeks with 100% sastisfaction. She was exactly 5 weeks past her own deadline when we fired her, and not one page of our website looks or is functioning properly. Now, we didn't fire her for not being able to do the work. In fact, we were EXTREMELY patient with her because she kept telling us lies that she was getting someone to help her get the work done and we had already invested so much time in her. No, we fired her (trying to cut our losses) because we discovered that she was attempting to extort more money out of us with her lies of "help".
She actually told us that she knew 2 people that would be able to help her finish the project, but that they would need more money and that we would not be able to meet with them, nor would they sign our NDA. REALLY?!!! They also didn't have names and the bids for the additional money "they" wanted from us started at $10,000 (to simply install and configure a WordPress plugin), dropping to a mere $150 when we refused. Not only was she the most immature and unprofessional adult we've ever worked with (and that's no exaggeration), but we found the manner in which she handeled the entire situation to be extreemly suspect and down right criminal.
When we realized that she simply could not do the work, we begged her to just complete the little things that she was cappable of handling and we would find someone else to finish the complicated ecommerce portion. This is where she completley stopped taking our calls and refused to answer any of our emails or turn over the rest of our property as she was legaly required to do.
Please, please, please do yourself a favor and DO NOT hire Diane Denise Frierson. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
