Complaint Review: SC5.io
SC5.io HTML5 Finnish Scammer Helsinki Internet
*Consumer Comment: Martti Malm is 100% scam
*Consumer Comment: Martti Malmi is out of business
SC5 is a rip off. Do not use SC5 (based in Finland - SC5.io) for your web development needs. I hired SC5 to develop my HTML5 website. A programmer named Martti Malmi contacted me and provided a list of services they could provide me at a reasonable cost. I had PSD files and was looking for someone to slice them into HTML5 and CSS3 for my website. He promised to get this done in a three-month time frame. Martti Malmi offered me a $1295 a month package for full time development (6 hours a day 5 days a week). I was promised a three-day trial period where I could evaluate how things worked and then I would be expected to pay the month up front.
As soon as I agreed to hire them they told me I had to pay immediately in order for work to start. They sent me a contract agreement that required 30-days notice to cancel services. Trouble started once I had paid them money. Almost all communication ceased. I would send them files and information and only get a reply telling me they had received it. Contrary to their promises I never received an update email. Nor did I ever communicate with the developer. At this point, it is the end of the second month and I have not received any update or heard anything from them. The last two weeks that I paid for were essentially stolen from me.
The site I have is full of bugs, is coded poorly, and isn’t even according to the specs I asked for. It allows over 1 GB of data to get dumped on a user's PC every 16 seconds which seems to be a loophole on other sites they have developed for the clients listed on their website; Veikkaus, POP Vakuutus and F-Secure. SC5 quoted me three-months for my entire project and after two months I have some poorly coded HTML5. It has been one long headache filled with poor communication practices, poor quality work, and a very incomplete site as a result. Not only is SC5 making false promises with what they say they can do for you, they are also a very unprofessional company to work with. Hire at your own risk!!!!
