Andrew Cross of Goldfields Legal retained my services for web production and internet marketing work, as well as consulting in both areas according to an agreement made on October 18, 2013 at 11:30am.

Mr. Cross violated the terms of our agreement the following Monday by ending our contract via a third party and only compensating me for a portion of services he requested, which were delivered per our agreement.

Further more, Mr. Cross refused to discuss compensation for services rendered, yet continues to profit from the work, which included but was not limited to malware research and removal from his company website located at http://www.goldfieldslegal.ca.

The malware, injected in the source code of his WordPress template prevented Andrew Cross and/or Goldfields Legal from being indexed on search engines, notably Google, and significantly impacted their business negatively.

As a result of my work, and expertise, Andrew Cross and/or Goldfields Legal will now thrive as the site's reputation is restored, however this came at a great expense to me in the manner of time and energy, which neither Andrew Cross nor Goldfields Legal of Richmond Hill, ON, deemed deserved compensation.

I have assembled all records necessary to defend this case in a court of law, and strongly advise anyone considering a relationship with Andrew Cross nor Goldfields Legal to factor in this report before investing time, energy or money with this individual or company.

Thank you rip off report and anonymous reporter

AUTHOR: Andrew - ()

The allegations contained in the report are at best inaccurate and a complete and utter fabrication.

This individual who's alias was Dan Jiles but has a real name of Daniel St. Pierre was never retained by Andrew Cross or Goldfields Legal but was contracted strictly through Odesk and paid in full through Odesk. The sum was I believe $10.oo.

This individual Daniel St Pierre was tracked by Odesk and I believe he had other aliases and has done this to other people who are clients of Odesk, he was accordinglingly banned for life from Odesk.

The email that I received from Odesk is set out below, but what I really want to say is a BIG thank you to Rip Off Report for the publicity that the report, although false, has given me and the firm.

I do not want the report removed as I generated thousands in new clients specifically from this false report in Canada alone thanks to Rip Off Report.

These new clients were shown the emails as outlined below along with other that Daniel St Pierre sent to me which were religious and deranged, and these new clients commented that when reading the report it didn't make sense and that only a dishonest reporter would anonymously label an unsubstantiated complaint like this.

These clients proceeded to write out retainer cheques in advance because they trusted me and the firm and they did not believe the report, although they found it entertaining.

A word of warning to anyone using a freelance contractor, be careful with your information and your passwords and make sure that Odesk or similar is the barrier between you and what could end up as a contractual disaster.

Hello Andrew,

He has been permanently suspended from oDesk and a security block put on him so that he cannot open anymore accounts. I sincerely apologize for what he is doing to you.

What email address and company information did he give you?

I am still checking with our Security Team regarding if there is anything we can do about his post. They will not be back into the office however until Monday.

Please let me know should you have additional questions or concerns.
