SEO Reputation Management at its best!

I hired Paul Leonardi from Moveuplocal to redo a website and do SEO for me. After we talked a while He seemed like he knew what I needed and could do exactly what I wanted done. I paid Paul up front for a website ($650) and also first month of SEO for $1200. It would be $750 a month for a year after that to keep doing SEO.

Well after I paid him he said it would take a bout 3 days to complete the site. After almost a month he got the site live. Other than about 5 days it took me to get a new hosting and get him some info the rest was on him.

That was a little longer than I though, but I stuck with it. Well the last week of the month He wanted me to write some content so he could make more pages on my website and try to finish it off so we could start the SEO portion.

I wrote the articles within a few days and sent them to him one or two at a time. Well after the last week past he did not respond. I asked him twice if he was still working on my site and when we could start the SEO.

The last email I got from him he was sick he says for a few days and he was better. and I was number one on Bing and Yahoo. I told him I was already number one with those sites.He didn't even know that. (Never ran a report he promised).

That was the last I heard from Paul Leonardi and Move Up Local. I called and left a message, emailed him about 4 times and never got a response back. I know he was online because he had 2 posts to his Face book and twitter accounts while I was trying to reach him.

So my CC company now is going to do a dispute for my money. If that does not work he will see me in court and it will cost him more than him refunding me.

I wish I would have read his 3 previous reports on BBB He has an F rating on his other SEOAcuity business he probably changed from because of it. Also on Ripoff report seemed to do about the same thing to someone else.

Hope I am the last person this so called businessman takes money from. I have all the emails to show what happened.

Follow Up. He emailed and said he was out of town and said he was not trying to take advantage of me and would do what he said.

Well after a week or so later he is back to not responding to my emails and really just seems like he does not care. If he was sincere he would at least answer some questions I had and emailed me back He still makes posts on his Face Book and Twitter so I know he is around.

Tired of fooling with him and really need to hire someone to fix my site and do my SEO
