SEO Reputation Management at its best!

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!

Diane Denise remains a complete rip-off

AUTHOR: Kevin - ()

Here is an UPDATE to our RIPOFF REPORT on DIANE DENISE (FRIERSON):

 

4 days ago, after 5 WEEKS of no response or contact of any kind from Diane Denise, we suddenly heard from her! To quickly recap, we had hired Diane to do very little programming on our almost completed website, paid her $2250 and then in the course of the project found out that she is completely incompetent and unprofessional… basically, a FRAUD.

She had taken our money, dismantled and then BROKE our working website, left it like that and then cut off all communication with us despite our repeated attempts to resolve our dispute with her amicably! We even offered to hire someone else to complete most of the items she had been hired to do and let her keep the money we had paid her if she could simply repair the damage she had done. No RESPONSE From Diane Denise.

Well, apparently this Ripoff Report got her attention, because 4 days ago (after the 5 weeks of “hiding”) we received an email from Diane Denise asking, “ I was wondering if you would give me the opportunity to complete what I can on the project and remove the negative comment from rippoff report?” (misspelling intentional… and please note the admission that she was unable to perform the duties for which she had already been paid).

Since we had already begun working on another website, we decided to let Diane attempt to at least partially make amends for the damage she had caused us and for her unprofessional conduct. We agreed to provide a backup version of our website (exactly as she had left it) so she could upload it to her server and work on it. Diane stated by email that she would go through the pages, working “as quickly as possible”, and then provide us with an update ASAP. Well, true to form, two days went by (longer than agreed) and we had still received no update from Diane! At that point, we emailed her requesting one, however it took two emails and almost another whole day before we received a response from her. Diane lied, claiming that she had been working on our database for the past two days, but then had to admit later that night in an email to us that she had been unable to access it!

The following day, (and still no progress report as promised), Diane requested that we upload all of the PSD designs, which would normally indicate that our website was being worked on. Wrong!! Yet another day went by with No response from Diane! So, again, we sent another email requesting an update. This time, she merely responded with a terse email, “I cant fix it” (no punctuation intentional). No explanation… NO details… Nothing!! We immediately responded asking for more information, but Diane had again, Abandoned the project and cut off all communication, without any details of what she had done, what she had found or what she would do with our property! We emailed a Second time reminding her that, per our legal contract, she was required to turn over our property and wipe all of our files from her server and asked her to simply confirm that she had done this. Still, just as before, No response from Diane Denise!!!

You would think that Diane would at least offer to refund our $2250 for not delivering anything in our agreed contract, but she has already admitted that she  spent the money and can’t afford to give us a refund. 

What we’ve taken away from this experience is this…. If the programmer you hire can’t afford to do the project with an agreement of an initial deposit and the remainder paid upon completion, said programmer probably isn’t worth their salt.  Don’t hire them and don’t hire Diane Denise.  You have been warned!
