I performed a web service for Acupuncture International, i.e. built a website and have since been receiving harassing phone and email messages for free services.

When I began this project, I was told it had to be done quickly. I received over three hundred emails while Mr. Speiser made attempts to get his 'act together' with content and the like.

After each "session" of changes and edits, he sent me emails about how good the site was and how nicely it worked.

In early September I went to New Orleans to assist a friend in their time of need and when I got back there were over sixty messages from Mr. Speiser claiming that he needed the final file -- which I gave him in addition he wanted a free logo to be given to him as he was poor now and he couldn't afford to pay for it. His last e-mail before I answered stated that I was an evil person and how could I hate him so much.

Mind you, in New Orleans there is no cellphone service nor any way to check email in September or October -- which is the time period I was there.

When I finally replied, all of the sudden his site buttons weren't working. He was upset because he had apparently messed around with the file and really screwed it up.

All the while claiming he didn't have the file yet I sent it to him TWICE.

So while I was not ripped off, persay, I wanted everyone who does web and graphic design to be on the lookout for this fellow as he does not conduct business in an ethical or professional manner.

He constantly harasses anyone who gives him the kindness of helping him out. When you give this fellow an inch he'll take three thousand miles. Not to mention that he lies shamelessly about the years he has been performing acupuncture. He told me he had been doing it for 30 years -- interestingly, once his harassing emails started, I looked him up to find that he's only 31 years old... therefore, he's a shameless liar to boot unless we're all to believe that he has been performing acunpuncture since the age of 1.

I can only imagine if he is like this towards someone who is trying to help him, he'll be doubly harassing if you actually get anything done by his company.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

You don't know what a Rip-off is!

AUTHOR: Victimofslander - (U.S.A.)

Maybe you should actually learn what the definition of "Rip-off" is. Even if what you posted is true, which it isn't, then that would make me a jerk, and you would post me on some "Jerk Report" site or something. Not on a site about companies that cheat people or take their money. I paid you at least $2000 to make a website, you didn't pay me. Think about it! Take it off this site. This just proves how out of touch you are with reality, like when you claim I told you I did acupuncture for 30 years? We talked on the phone, I think it was obvious I wasn't 50 years old. I probably said 3 years.

Get it off this site, I did not rip you off!

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

This is entirely unfair!

AUTHOR: Victimofslander - (U.S.A.)

Emails to prove your claim? What that I emailed you asking for something to get done? I had no idea you were in New Orleans. I was under the impression you were avoiding me. How was I supposed to know? I have emails from you that were worse and show your unprofessionalism.

You make these insane statements like when I hire someone I expect this and that and I own them. It's nuts! Your the first and only person I ever hired for anything.

This is what really happened:

You would make something off centered or not quite right on the site, I would ask for you to change it or give you a suggestion and you would go balitstic.

I asked to change some grammar and spelling mistakes that I didn't see from my own text, and you would go nuts and rant and rage for 30 minutes how I am so horrible. I asked for normal stuff. After a few weeks of this insanity, I probably did email you from a frustrated tone. But never ever ever did I rip you off or act in the way you wrote here.

This is entirely 100% false and unfair and if I can find out who you are I will sue you immediately.

If you are so sure about what you say, then tell me who you are and lets go to court. I will sue you so hard for this slander and public humiliation of me.

You got paid $2000 to make a site that wasn't even that good. You forgot to post that. I paid you at least $2000.

I did not rip you off! This does not belong on this site.

People lie but evidence doesn't. I have the e-mails and voicemails to prove my claim. So the 100% false is just the opposite.

That's laughable.

AUTHOR: J.m. - (U.S.A.)

If anyone was bi-polar it was you, Jeremy. You constantly called about your website long after it was done. You badger people. You believe that just because you hire them to do something for you that you own them. I still have the e-mails and all the BS that went on. Please get a life and move on. Your site isn't even up anymore.

#5 REBUTTAL Individual responds

This is 100% false!

AUTHOR: Victimofslander - (U.S.A.)

This never happened. I hired a lady to make me a website, and didn't realize she was extremely mentally unstable. I never called her this many times or harassed her at all. I think she's bi-polar, and no matter how polite I was or how much I tried to cater to her, she continually turned everything I said into an argument. Her comment that I said I did acupuncture for 30 years is preposterous! I talked ot her on the phone many times. What did I do pretend to be 50 years old when I was 31?

Its real sad that someone would post this about me, when its 100% untrue.

Jeremy Speiser AKA Acunpuncture International

AUTHOR: J.m. - (U.S.A.)

In addition:

I was thinking about it after I submitted my post earlier this morning and felt I need to elaborate a bit more:

I did try to appease Mr. Speiser with his website by making some changes for free even though he didn't have his content in good order. I was very patient with his "edits" even though it was a real pain because he has emailed me over 300 times in a month's period -- which is above and beyond what any other client has ever done -- this includes major corporations with sites that have thousands of pages not just thirteen.

I even told him twice after I was tired of getting barraged with emails -- sometimes six in one day -- that I had terminated our business contact and that he was to NOT email or phone me again for any reason period -- he continued.

I have contacted an advisor who informed me that on no uncertain terms this was harassment and that perhaps I should speak to the local authorities in his area in order to file a formal complaint.

I hate doing such things as I have never been raised to do this sort of thing; however, when he leaves messages on my voicemail like: "I don't know why you hate me..." As if I know him well enough or want to know him well enough to "hate him." It's childish and immature.
