I am a freelance writer and find many of my gigs online. By doing this, I set myself up for a certain amount of risk to fraudsters, scammers and the like. In my 5 years spent as a freelancer I have had one or two slippery customers and have lost a small amount of money; however nothing comes close to what USAimmigrationsupport.com and the internet scammer Vytautas Lekarauskas have done to me.

Between January and March I carried out writing services (many of which can still be seen on their website) to the tune of about 900USD. This was paid to me via PayPal and Google Checkout. All of their payments went 'under review' for a few days before going through. That's when I should've cut and run! But we live and learn... After a while, I was doing a job for them involving some short descriptions for the site (some of which are still there) when "Tom Verner" (my contact, presumably a false name - maybe even Vytautas Lekarauskas) altered the brief. I'd had enough at this point and was unwell, so I emailed them and said they could have what I'd done already for free and that I could no longer continue providing services. So we were all square; no response from them, I move on with my life...

Four months later, in May, I wake up to an email saying I've received a chargeback for my first payment from Vytautas Lekarauskas for non-delivery of goods. Because PayPal don't cover for "digital items", I had to take the hit. Two days later, I get two more chargebacks for a total of $490. At this point I email Vytautas Lekarauskas and ask what's happening.

Tom (or Thomas) Verner then got back to me via Instant Messenger with this little gem:

You were very mean and supposedly "busy" to finish up the work, leaving us jeopardised. In addition you brought up some responsibility theories and much more, hoping you were so cool and unbeatable. As a result, we decided to go the same path as you did and teach you the lesson of a lifetime. As you can see it does not feel very good.

Pretty professional, right?! Anyway, after a little conversation Vytautas Lekarauskas seemed to soften to my situation and inferred that he would retract or at least reduce the chargebacks. Then, two days later, the final chargeback! Another $150, this time via Google Checkout.

At this point Ive spent tens of hours working for hundreds of dollars, just to have it all stolen back by Vytautas Lekarauskas and USAimmigrationsupport.com months later.

My final advice is this: NEVER work with Vytautas Lekarauskas, NEVER buy from USAimmigrationsupport.com they sell information you can get for free and encouraged me to plagiarise their competitors website content NEVER do any freelance work for Vytautas Lekarauskas, he is a scammer and a fraudster, and I will be working my hands to the bone for the next few months to settle the $1000 debt he and his company have stolen from me for my honest hard work. Oh, and always send hard copies when you provide digital goods!

#1 General Comment


AUTHOR: Anonymous - (United States of America)

These folks are consistent with stealing from people.  Take a look at this situation below.  Not only do they steal they are nasty about it!  What a bunch of crooks! They engage in banter as if trying to justify their unethical behavior.  Here is one of their professional comments:

Yeah, you indian freelancers suck. Offering gold mines, but providing pure s**t. Once caught and punished - you are all of of dramas like p***y boys. And what normal freelancer would have time for such an annoying game? -

only the most incompetent ones, because they must either not getting paid for a poor work or, they wouldnt get any job. In this case it seems that its both. So, I guess, do whatever you want?


Would you do business with these monsters!  Horrible in every way!

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Had no problems with USAImmigrationSupport.com

AUTHOR: Ami Simmons - (United States of America)

I had been working with USAImmigrationSupport.com for over 6 months and in fact I never had any problems: I always got paid on time, and no charges were reversed.

Freelance complainer should be very happy he got away just with reversed charges, while he obviously tends to leave employers with unfinished work and breaches the trust of any employer for every bigger penny that comes along! Seriously, who wants such an employee?
