Complaint Review: DrBrendan
DrBrendan.com iPhone Repair DrBrendan.com Stole Web Development Services - THIEF! New York New York
Most of you may know Brendan McElroy as the owner of DrBrendan.com Mac Repair in New York. Over a period of months I got the pleasure of working with DrBrendan.com as a consulted web developer for hire. Dr. Brendan had me perform many tasks for him, many of which only days later would be scrapped and changed.
There were many projects he contracted and then decided he did not want to pay for or complete. On several occasions I would contact Dr Brendan in order to discuss projects and he would be in a loud and noisy bar drinking with friends. Your personal life is none of my business until it affects my business.
On the last 2 jobs I performed they went like this… Some previous web developer of Brendan McElroy did not get paid for work and DrBrendan thought he could not pay him for his work. So this disgruntled employee changed his phone number at the top to have the contact number for an escort service. [continued below]....
After hearing him out I decided that yes, I would go ahead and perform these emergency updates asap and send him the bill. After the work was completed I sent the bill and heard nothing. I contacted DrBrendan several times by email and every time he would act like yes he was going to pay. Every email there was another excuse and reason.
Finally I had to explain that what he had done was a crime and was illegal. I think DrBrendan McElroy knows that this is illegal but also knows I am working out of Ecuador so I can’t file a police report. WOW… make sure you know who you trust when you go into business with this guy.
This guy stole my services and I assume the services of the previous developer without ANY consequence. He seems to think that if you live in another country that it is okay to screw you over and steal from you. So you need to remember who you do business with and what AMERICAN businesses you trust. Either DrBrendan is a racist, a thief or maybe an incapable drug addict/alcoholic… or possibly a pathetic combination of all.
DrBrendan also started another website iphonerepairNYC.com in order to provide false competition for his other business in New York. He also did this in order to provide a Groupon on groupon.com without having to really provide any discounted prices. iPhoneRepairNYC.com is just a fake company and name created to con groupon.com and people out of thinking they are providing a discount. I wonder what Groupon.com will think when they get a copy of this and are able to put 2 and 2 together.
Please do not contract services that you will not pay for. You would not walk into WalMart and take something without paying because they would put you in jail. You will not get put in jail this time but I am fairly certain the havoc this will create could be just as bad.
Good Luck and Happy New Year, Brendan!
