PeoplePerHour Buyer for my team's work and paid nothing London, UK Internet
I had a team working for 8 months for Ben Goodenough.Requirements changed, a lot changed, more features added, etc.We couldn't complete everything on time, as normal, so Ben decided he'd ask for a refund on his deposit, having already source code for 2 sites and 2 mobile apps with him, all running and installed on his server.
This scam website PeoplePerHour after disputes etc decided to refund him the full thing on a basis that since I'm a new seller he gets a refund, no questions asked. Even if I completed the full work (which me and my team were always willing and committed to doing) he could just ask for a refund, and under PPH's T&Cs he gets to keep the work and get all of his deposit back, keeping everything for free.
My question is, how is this website still up? Clearly illegal and defrauding people. I was unable to pay my team and this guy Ben Mills or Ben Goodenough, from Birmingham (he has multiple aliases) just refuses to pay.
The websites he's running for free (at our expense) are: https://www.blinqe.com and https://www.blinqetest.com
I don't want full payment for unfinished work, I want fair compensation for the work done. which is around 90-95% of all that was agreed upon. Ben never wanted this, then he'd have to pay, or not, since PPH facilitates not paying and still keeping everything.
This website must be taken down.
