Eli Faria of 111 E14th St #210 NY New York ripped me off. He is nothing more than a poor businessman who is angry because I refused to pay him for his awful work. I hired Eli to write an entry for me and place it on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

He wrote the biography, but it is not even close to the standard of writing that I require. When I told him that changes needed to be made and that the listing is poorly developed and written, he became defensive and rude and refused to make changes, except correcting the spelling of "theologian."

It is highly unbelievable that in six years he has never received a complaint about his work. If he had rewritten the bio and provided me with something more than the excuse that no one has ever complained about his work, I would have paid him the ($200) fee as agreed.

He says that only two people did not pay him -- perhaps, Eli, you did a better job for others, but more than likely we didn't pay you because we know good work we refuse to pay for poor quality. Log on to Wikipedia and read the biography that he wrote on me and you will see why I have concerns. Here are a just a few examples of his poor writing.

1.He lists the London School of Economics as Theological Education and combines this economic institution with the Theological Seminary of Vanderbilt University as if they are one. This is poor writing and poor punctuation plus an extreme lack of knowledge of geography!

2. He thinks the correct usage is Dr.and Reverend Stokeling rather than The Reverend Dr. Stokeling or Reverend Dr. Stokeling.

3. He thinks the following sentence is well written -- "The racial and social strife of the faced by the neighborhood in the 1960s and 1970s was a force in the church's growing influence." It makes no sense!

4. Under the section about my pastorate, Eli talks about the size of the building, but omits programs and ministries that were created under my leadership and wrote about the neighborhood's gentrification, but makes no reference to my participation in the growth of the area surrounding my church. He could have taken a great deal of information from my bio, which was provided to him.

5. Under "Preaching Style," this so-called expert writer and copy editor turned the fact that I sang at Gospel brunches as playing regularly in a jazz club. How is that preaching style? He also confused my singing style with my preaching style.

6. And, what on earth is a non-denominational jazz club (a phrase that he made up)?

7. In the references listed, several of them have little or nothing to do with me, my church or the period in which I have served at the church.

So, you see, I have been ripped off, not Eli. I asked for a well written biography and got a horribly written, poorly developed mess. He may have references from billion dollar companies, but what he wrote for me is not worth a dollar!

Dr. Stokeling,

Sorry for the very long gap in communication. My grandmother died and I took some time off and am now swamped with work.

Are these things you've listed from the "Amsterdam News" online?

Subject: Re: !!If you have not sent Payment yet, I will be reporting you on Wednesday to FBI, BBB, more!!



I have done hundreds of articles and you are the first person to tell me an article is not well written. What about is not well written? Seriously, do tell.

And when did you say it was not well written. Forward me that please. The only thing I can find from you is this:

"I have been following your threads. Wiki stated that article would be taken down. What does that mean? I am not trying to stiff you. I was waiting on you to say "done"."

Everything in a Wikipedia article must be verifiable. The notability tag is your problem for telling me the Amsterdam articles were online or I'd not have written the article in the first place.

If you read the talk page it clearly states from another editor that if I put those links up (from Amsterdam) that notability tag will be taken down.

You rightfully owe me my $200 and I expect that you send it to me, Minister.

You are a swindler. You also have the honor of being only the second person ever to not pay me (the other was the proud owner of a sex toy website.)

I'm an SEO expert. I'll make sure there's a webpage that comes up #1 in google with your name and how you defraud freelancers when your name is searched. That in addition to reporting you to authorities tomorrow.

You're a liar and a crook and not paying freelancers is about as low as you can go.

Don't forget to tell me what is not well-written AND forward me the email of when you said so.

Good day,
Eli Faria

You'll be only the third client in 6 years to not pay until forced to. It's not pretty. I contact and post your name and many websites that are there to protect freelancers, contact the better business bureau, you to the FBI's division of Internet Fraud which covers non-payment of freelancers, and many more.

HE STATES THAT THE ARTICLE REMAINING ON WIKIPEDIA IS MY PROBLEM. HOW HAS HE BEEN SCAMMED?11111

1. 5 MONTHS OF NOT HEARING FROM A PERSON. THE OBVIOUS EXCUSE. MY MOTHER BROTHER, GRANDMOTHER DIED. I HAD MERCY WHICH IS THE REASON I AM IN THIS SITUATION.

2. AN EDITOR WOULD MAKE SURE ALL FACTS ARE VERIFIED BEFORE SUBMITTING AN ARTICLE.

A COPY OF THE ARTICLE BEFORE HE EDITED IT:

This article may not meet the general notability guideline. Please help to establish notability by adding reliable, secondary sources about the topic. If notability cannot be established, the article is likely to be merged or deleted. (March 2009)
