I paid $1000 deposit for web construction not even for the design since I had done the designed for the entire web site myself. All I ever got was an ugly and faked web site where nothing works made of pieces of JPG files I sent as samples.

I have had nothing but lies and promises like I'm troubleshooting my code, I have all the modules done just have to upload thems, my family is visiting me and I couldn't work for days, I went skiing, you will have by tomorrow and so on - TOTALY UNPROFESSIONAL. He dragged it on and on so I was forced to buy a 3rd party module so he won't have much to do but even that didn't work so I waisted more money.

It went for 7 months and he never accomplished the work despite my multiple attempts to email and contact him via phone. He won't answer the phone and when I got him on the phone he claimed he will upload the work and never did it. I later realized it was a well done SCAM.

Here is how it works: First you trust Imflatech with your project and give a deposit to his PayPal account, later hi will create a fake site and tell you that a lot of the work is done but have small problems with the code but that all is good and all of sudden he will contact you with a emergency and that if you would help him with some cash for that day or the next - You will believe it and make your second deposit and that will be the end he will just drag it until you give it up.

I recommend you avoid IMFLATECH and his owner "Jose Paolo Cataluna" at all costs as you will LOOSE YOUR MONEY and never get anything from your money.

POSTED: Wednesday, May 27, 2009
I was contact before, with this person to work for some projects. So as a developer i try to make business with him. But do you wanna know how this person try to manipulate people? You will be paying for $1000 for your website and expect that he is really working on it? The answer? NO!

He is outsourcing in 3rd countries and hiring some newbies or new developers to work for your website, and do you expect a quality result? Haha! ofcourse not, because, If you are paying $1000 for your website, then he will find to work with it for $300. So see how he got from the single project. And later on, when projects done or even it's not even working he will tell them that's already finished. If you seen any erros then thats another payable?

It's very rediculous, and besides he didn't even paid me with my work for him. He ows $300 for the stuff and he always promise to pay me. But, even a single penny he didn't paid any.

So i really suggest not to work with this person. Please be aware of this kind of people. Who are very opportunistic, they will fool you. And get a lot of cash money. Shame on him.

It is actually great to know that there was a back end administrator function since I never got the opportunity to see or use it. Also since the domain is now of public knowledge I encourage people to use the site www.petflock.com, please create an account if you can make it work (you will get an error) or try to upload a file like a video or picture (developer never put an upload bottom), perhaps create a blog (more errors) or click the talk button to chat and see it for your self, not to mention the missing function he never got to work on even though they were in his contract. I was going to cancel the hosting since there is no reason to keep it live since no one thing works but I will keep it now as IMFLATECH / JOSE PAOLO CATALUNA'S PORTAFOLIO SAMPLE.

If this so called developer would have "finished" any applications as he says in his replay they would be working wouldn't they.

I will let the public adjudicate this UNPROFESSIONAL and UNSCRUPULOUS developer who will send the log in information for my site to the public but not to me, so if you are considering the possibility of giving your project to this individual just take a look at the site and decide for your self. Also don't forget the fact that you will be at his total mercy when trying to contact him to ask about why your project is not done as he will not answer the phone to you even at all.

Here is what will happen if you decide to try IMFLATECH.COM

You will find Jose Paolo Cataluna through a web site ad because no one will recommend him and you will believe he is the right person because when you ask if he is capable of creating what you need he will say something like this: IF IT IS OUT THERE AND SOMEBODY DID IT I CAN DO IT.
Then you will spend many hours working in the creation of your site thinking that you have somebody that is going to make it happen.
Next )The beginning of the SCAM) you'll forward all your exciting work to the developer along with your down-payment and he will create a FAKE site and tell you that it is just the skeleton that all the work is about to be uploaded that he is just troubleshooting the code and everything is great except that he is having an emergency and if you can give him some cash as a favor even though the contract says that any remaining payment is not due until all the work is finished "The Scam begins).
Of course you whant to make the hard worker happy and so you will deposit more money into his account --YOU WILL NOT REALIZE UNTIL LATER THAT YOU HAVE JUST BEEN RIPPED OFF because suddenly he'll stop working on your site and start dragging it and tell you all kinds of stories and excuses none of them related to the work rather to personal matters.
Weeks will go by and all you attempts to contact him will fail - You will then realize that there is no hope and you have just waisted your money and you actually are worse than when you first started because you will not have a real web site and on top of that the developer took your money.
The bad part is that the business you happily started is no longer a reality.

The contract says that it would take 28 days to fished the work INCLUDING TESTING AND TROUBLESHOOTING not 7 months (consider that the site was never finished even after the 7 months) and every time I asked for a modification I always offer to pay for it - I NEVER WANTED ANYTHING FOR FREE JUST WANTED MY SITE DONE WITHOUT TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF ANYONES WORK. (He never made any modification anyway simply because he never finished anything so how could he modified something that was never done in the first place).

ADVISE: Stay away from Imflatech, IMFLATECH.COM and his owner Jose Paolo Cataluna you are better of trying somewhere else for your own sake.

This is not a fake site. Look at it and see how deep the programming is( I gave up on it because there are new changes everytime)

AUTHOR: Paolo - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Sunday, March 08, 2009
Firstly the site www.petflock.com is created with php and mysql it even has a back end admin. The contract that we agreed only only includes a blog, reblog connection, images, video ( which is hosted on another site, youtube etc..), talk which is more like an instant messenger chat, and images is image upload function, and video is video upload using other hosting sites.

Please download this report that I gave for the function of this site to examine the functions www.imflatech.com/download/newreport.rar

All those functions I have created. What made the site longer was the fact that everytime I have finished an application, I get another application that is different, For example a youtube engine to be created on the site instead on using other hosting companies. I want to add to everyone who knows development. Do you know how hard it is to create that? Besides from the fact that you have to have an ffmpeg capabilities in your server.

I have my own faults in this work but I cannot do so much work and everytime there are changes that are being sent to me especially when the contract states what things should be in there.

I will send the log in information tomorrow as I have to look for it in my files. I will show the back end work as well as the log in on user side interface.

PS: WHY WOULD I TAKE 1,000.00 IF I CAN FINISH THE WORK AND GET PAID 2,000.00 THIS IS WHAT I DO FOR A LIVING, I WOULD RATHER FINISH THE JOB THAN HAVE BAD REPUTATION. I AM A DEVELOPER THERE ARE THINGS THAT I CAN DO AND THERE ARE ALSO THINGS THAT I CANNOT DO.

I CAN FINISH ALL THOSE THINGS THAT I WAS TOLD BUT IT TEXT TIME AND IT TAKES EXTRA MONEY.

I paid $1000 deposit for web construction not even for the design since I had done the designed for the entire web site myself. All I ever got was an ugly and faked web site where nothing works made of pieces of JPG files I sent as samples.

I have had nothing but lies and promises like I'm troubleshooting my code, I have all the modules done just have to upload thems, my family is visiting me and I couldn't work for days, I went skiing, you will have by tomorrow and so on - TOTALY UNPROFESSIONAL. He dragged it on and on so I was forced to buy a 3rd party module so he won't have much to do but even that didn't work so I waisted more money.

It went for 7 months and he never accomplished the work despite my multiple attempts to email and contact him via phone. He won't answer the phone and when I got him on the phone he claimed he will upload the work and never did it. I realized later that it was a well done SCAM.
