I purchased an internet package and paid nearly $5,000 to Tee Medlin for the completion of a full featured Website (including a flash banner ad), an eBay makeover, an Amazon webstore, as well as a customized newsletter. These were all included in the packaged price.

Tee seemed great at first. He made a lot of promises up front that sounded great and reasonable for the price. He told me, he would extend a 20% discount if I were to make the payment up front (big mistake!) and complete the entire package within 3-6 weeks from the time of payment as long as I was readily available for approvals by phone and email.

Well 3 months went by and I finally was able to get a completed eBay makeover page out of him! I ended up doing most of the design work in the end on my own. I immediately answered all emails that Tee had sent me and spent any time he needed for discussion via phone (which was minimal at best).

We went back and forth a few times regarding the website design and after doing a very basic design for me, he basically told me I was on my own and that the site was ready to go... Just start selling...

It is now almost a year later and as far as the customized flash banner ad for the website, the amazon webstore, or the customized newsletter - I have received none of them! I have seeked legal guidance, but after finding out how much a lawyer would cost me, I just gave up and ended up doing most of the work on my own.

The company is nearly impossible to get a hold of and good luck getting any responses by email or phone. I contacted them several times, saying that if the rest of the services were not included or a partial refund was not issued I would have no choice but leave a review. Guess what - never received a response from them!

I am writing this to let anyone else looking for services provided by Tee Medlin to please think twice when doing so. I learned a big lesson by paying the full amount up front to get a refund. Belieive me when I say I would never do this again!

I am an honest guy trying to make an honest living in these tough times. I just hope nobody else runs into this type of issue in the future. That is why I am writing this posting.

 This owner has been caught in lies before. He accused some girl of stalking him at a conference but it was just a picture he took from an article 3 years prior. https://mobile.twitter.com/ChloeCondon/status/1083874972009783301 And though he deleted his Instagram after it was all bright to light, people took screenshots. He even faked meeting Seth Rogan at a charity golf tournament.

https://mobile.twitter.com/Smplyetstunning/status/1084304073967452165 And here is Seth Rogan chiming in to say that it was fake because that's actually his Madame Tussaud's wax statue. But Tee Medlin deleted that tweet too.

Basically this paints the picture of a man who lies to project a desired image, and then either ignores, deletes, or twists information to suit his needs. And then finally, he also plays the victim. https://mobile.twitter.com/TeeMedlin/status/1134122862472761345. If he deletes this I have screenshots and you can check the internet archive at archive.org

COMPETITOR'S SLANDER AND PERSONAL AGENDA!

AUTHOR: Mr. Medlin - (USA)

POSTED: Thursday, December 17, 2009

There's much good that can come out of forums such as this website. Giving consumers an empowering voice when a product or a company has fallen short of satisfying the expectations and needs of the consumer. Unfortunately, it can also be used as an outlet of vengeance or deliberate defamation with regards to a company, a product or an individual.

This report, and the other report filed on 11-15-09, was filed by the same person and is a case of a disgruntled COMPETITOR. One of which our business has had unfortunate instances with in the past.

First of all, we would love to garner more clients from the West Coast but to this day we have never had a client from the state of Utah or from San Diego for that matter. We did contact ripoffreport.com and did recently find out that these reports came from the same computer. I do believe at this point that it would be beneath us to list this person's personal identity and information as they've done in listing my personal contact information. It's one thing to have a complaint, or feel ill will against a company, but to list my name and some of my personal information first and foremost, which is indexed by search engines, is just unethical in my opinion. Now... if my child does a search for his dad's name, these rediculous comments he now will have access to.

After the first posting we decided to take the high road and did not feel as though we needed to make a rebuttal. But what this person is doing is ANONYMOUSLY spreading more falsehoods in order to, we believe, discourage our many potential local clients from allowing us to help with their branding, design, SEO or eCommerce strategy needs.

In conclusion, as many of you potential clients who are reading this know, a disgruntled customer or competitor can wreak havoc on your eCommerce, Amazon or eBay business reputation. Those of you that have been PowerSellers on eBay for years should understand the insanity by which some customers possess when given the power to rate or comment on your business. Sometimes with the direct intent of shutting down a business until said business can bring their feedback percentage back up to 98% or higher.  Now imagine that ten fold with regards to a competitor's vengeance.

I will assume most, if not all, of you that may have come across this report, are intelligent enough to understand the ease of which this type of consumer outlet can be misused. So please read these reports, which pretty much have the same message, information and even misspellings, with a grain of salt and understand that personally, and professionally, I would never do anything to jeopardize the relationships that I have with my clients.

Fortunately, or unfortunate in this case, ripoffreport.com emphasizes it's strict policy of the First Amendment right to free speech which makes it very hard, without litigation, to have these false posts taken off of their website. At this point, we're not actively seeking the assistance of a Lawyer but may have to look into getting some assistance in the future if necessary if these instances continue by this individual.

Regardless of this person's future actions, this will be the only time I will address these untruthful reports. If anyone would like to speak further, or needs more in-depth information, on this matter, please feel free to give me a call at the number Mr. "Anonymous" listed in the report above. Also, if you're a potential client and needing help with your static or dynamic website, your eCommerce website, and/or your future SEO strategies, please feel free to contact me personally as well and I'll explain everything that we can do for you.

Best Regards,

T. Medlin

Rebuttal to these FALSE claims by a COMPETITOR:

POSTED: Wednesday, December 16, 2009

There's much good that can come out of forums such as this website. Giving consumers an empowering voice when a product or a company has fallen short of satisfying the expectations and needs of the consumer. Unfortunately, it can also be used as an outlet of vengeance or deliberate defamation with regards to a company, a product or an individual.

This posting is a case, not too surprisingly or unexpected, of a disgruntled COMPETITOR. One of which our business has had unfortunate dealings with before.

After working several years for Trader Online and then for a industry leader in providing inventory management software, Channeladvisor Inc., I found a niche helping small to midsized ecommerce companies build their online brand in multiple channels such as eBay, Amazon, and Overstock. As well as helping clients with the branding, design, coding and implementation of their eCommerce websites. I then branched out and created a company called JettiZEN Interactive (www.jettiZEN.com). We are a growing business but we too are just a small company trying to make our way in the ever changing and competitive web design, development and eCommerce industry.

Little did we know while entering this market, how cut throat and nasty some of the one-man-woman design shops would become once we began to ease into their market share and began to provide much better eCommerce and design expertise at a much lower cost than what was being offered at that time. It has been quite eye opening and quite frankly, pretty sad. Having said all of that, there has been one competitor in particular that has spread nasty emails, left nasty voice-mails in our office queue, and has even written false and misleading blogs about our business, as well as a multimillion dollar/euro UK company called Frooision. Now we are here on this very public forum, having to address the absurdity of these false claims.

First of all, we would love to garner more clients from the West Coast but to this day we have never had a client from the state of Utah or from San Diego for that matter. We did contact ripoffreport.com and did recently find out that these reports came from the same computer. I do believe at this point that it would be beneath us to list this person's personal information as they've done in listing my personal contact information.
