*Author of original report: Tim De Vallee attacks local citizen with online slander.
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Noel Bass Slanders The Firm
The Scam: Tim (The Firm Inc.) and his very small team promise to build your website (e-commerce, social networking, personal, etc.) for a fair price. They promise a quick delivery and outstanding customer communication. The goal is to get your money instantly, by phone or online. If that doesn't work, they call you in and have you pay in person. Once you make that first payment, they virtually disappear.
I was promised a completed website in two to three weeks. After three weeks, I had nothing to show for it. Each call I made resulted in me leaving a voicemail or being put on hold instantly for 20 minutes at a time.
Finally after three weeks, I decided to send an email stating that I would like to discuss how to get a refund so I can get my website services somewhere else. This is when the scam was complete.
Instantly, I received an email stating that I had no right for a refund and that the project was now terminated. Tim claimed that my $1000 went toward in-house meetings and phone calls. What?! What phone calls? I only spoke to Tim to discuss the basic idea of my website. Suddenly he whipped up a completely ridiculous invoice stating there were $1000 worth of meetings.
Tim De Vallee can scam people based on the fact that each company name he uses, is already a common company name in many other industries. So for instance, if I google The Firm, I will find many companies with the same name. The same goes for Quantum Group and Digital Universe.
Tim De Vallee is a horrible person looking to sneak his way into your wallet by appearing to be many companies and posing online as large legitimate organizations. But the reality is that he slithers through the cracks and out of sight.
Help stop Tim De Vallee from scamming more innocent victims!
