What a creep this guy is. He contacted me on the freelance website oDesk, eventually hiring me to re-write a rush project for him. I followed his very vague, poorly-explained instructions as best I could and delivered the project hours ahead of schedule.

Once he received my work, he started complaining that it wasn't what he asked for and now he'd need to "work all night" to get someone else to fix it. He ignored my offer to rewrite it, then disappeared for half a day, returned to start lying about having e-mailed me a marked-up revision document that never arrived.

Then the threats to not pay me started. He said his attorney told me he didn't have to pay for work he didn't like, and I pointed him to oDesk's policy of "an hour's pay for an hour's work." When the work week was over, he filed a dispute with oDesk (which he lost a few days later) and I ultimately was paid for my time.

I wish I'd Googled this thief before accepting this contract. He has a long history of not paying for work after the fact and he has hundreds of open contracts on oDesk where he hasn't paid out a single dime. Evidently he can't perform even the most basic functions (despite his being a self-professed "marketing expert"). He relies on scores of non English-speaking people in poor countries to do his job for him--including writing his blog, writing his tweets, uploading one photograph and even editing his self-penned pornography.

DO NOT WORK WITH THIS PERSON. Google his name and see what comes up.

fake legal notice de-bunked.

AUTHOR: Barry Brown - (USA)

howard davidson of arlington claims to have taken legal action. apparently no judge has agreed with his lies because he is unable to subpoena any identifying information and knows posters only as "john doe".

in contrast, one user provided details from oDesk which prove his claims.  that person  is not lying

also i contacted the law firm several times. they do not respond.

howard davidson is a resident of massachusetts claiming to be suing residents of massachusetts. the ohio court he mentions has no jurisdiction.

 

de-bunked.
