Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Rio Fightwear engaged in online marketing through our company for a number of months.  After a couple initial payments, we offered to do some work for them on account, including PR and management of online advertising accounts.  Payments for these, even to cover our costs, were never received.

Our contact at the company was the owner, Andre Fasciola.  He promised payment "soon" on a couple occasions, and then his e-mails got very short, saying they didn't have enough money to pay the bill (although all the e-mails came from a new iPhone, and the total amount owed was less than $1000).

Eventually, he just said that the company went under. Just wanted to post a warning for future contractors or businesses working with Rio Fightwear or Mr. Fasciola about this situation to hopefully help you avoid it in the future.

#2 UPDATE Employee

MIke Lalond - Londes Digital Marketing -

AUTHOR: dupont0222 - (United States of America)

For a short period of time RFW did commission Londes Digital Marketing to create and manage the companies PR and online advertising campaign. Mr. Lalond and RFW worked together to create the initial campaign, which RFW paid for in full, for the websites new launch. After mixed results with the campaign RFW discussed new strategies to improve it's poor SEO rankings with Mr. Lalond's company. At this point RFW agreed to the first phase of the new campaign, and for payment of said services Mr. Lalond agreed to exchange work-out gear for his services rendered. After mixed results with the first phase of the new campaign RFW decided to move forward without Londes Digital Marketing as its SEO and PR company. RFW believed it's accounts were current with Mr. Lalond - which amounted to much less than $ 1,000. Shortly after RFW decided to end services with Mr. Lalond RFW, and all of its assets, were sold to new owners. The previous owner of RFW was very surprised to see this inaccurate posting after such a long period of time away from RFW. Get everything in writing because you never know!
