Positively AWFUL experience with this outfit, , based out of Pakistan.

Had originally found them on, but they are known to work on pretty much all of the code sourcing websites like , , , , etc using multiple names ( sharpdeveloper , sharp-effect , sharpeffect, danishjibbran are all known names, but I'm sure there are others) across a wide range of email addresses-,, , etc.

They have an OK reputation for working on very simple and easy projects like $50 web pages, but have a terrible habit of underbidding for complex projects.

The individual in question, Mr. Raheel Afzal (aka Raheel Afzal Khan) is their 'business manager', while the coders themselves are another department. The coders did good work. The problem is, you have to go through the 'business manager' for everything. In the beginning, Raheel started off OK but over time, as it became clear that he had underbid, he became very unstable and started acting erratically.

After many months of work, he actually quit the entire project- the day the final payment was due to be made- when our discretionary bonus offer wasn't 'paid up front' and his project extortion efforts failed. Of course, we soon realized why; they are now using the concepts that we were intimately involved in developing to steal/sell our idea.

Believe me, DO NOT use or Raheel Afzal (or his parent company, for meaningful projects. Ignore their low bids. Spend a little more on a programmer elsewhere. This is a sham outfit with the business side being run by very immature (and I believe quite young) folks. They do not operate up to the standards expected in Western business.
