About a week ago, I had made a thread and was looking for an experienced web designer. The user Baigboy sends me a PM and asked for my skype ID, which I gave to him. After about an hour of chatting (I was on my phone, or I would add the chat log) we decided he would build my website with 15 pages for 250$. At first, he was asking for 800$ for this simply project where he built the design and added all the content I gave him, which was ridiculous and goes to show you what kind of person this guy is. He agreed to complete the project within 10 days for 250$ and I had to pay 70$ upfront. So after about 5 day I asked to see what he had done, he said he would email me the design he had completed (took him 2 hours to email me) and here's what he emails me: Then I go to skype and ask him how stupid he thinks I am, to send me a cloned/bought design. Considering it clearly has the website in the bottom left, and I know he didn't come up with all that information about poker on his own. So then he asks me for 24 hours and he will send me a real design that he made, so I agreed with him. Then the next day, I ask him to send me the design (took him around 1-2 hours AGAIN) and here's what he sends me this time: BUT WAIT! Doesn't that design look a little similar to this: Which is posted on multiple websites for free or X$ and all you have to do is search poker website design. So, not only did he do this the 1st time with a cloned website, then takes a free design the 2nd time, but he actually had the nerve to take another free design from a website which I found as well and could post the proof to that also, but I think you guys get the point. Here's all of his replies to my emails: Tuesday, December 7, 2010 12:46 PM I m Sorry Sir,my Internet is not working Properly so,i m not recived your messages,i will show you New Design and sorry for this design.Now i m in http://internetcafe.so/ give me 24h Time i will show you Good and Professional Design.

To sum everything up everything above, we talked on skype, he sent me cloned website designs 3 times, some emails had multiple designs, each time he basically agrees he didn't make them, considering he was then offering to show me new ones the next day, and continued to do the same thing each time. By the 3rd time, I had enough and asked for a refund and he trys to tell me his company won't allow him to refund my money, even though I had to send the 70$ to his friend paypal account. So, he was lazy and wanted 250$ for stealing a design, then adding my content, and then he decides to scam me when I want a refund, since he didn't do any work at all. This is the 3rd time this has happened to me trying to outsource to India. Between the quality of work, and the lack of professionalism, I have learned that you really get what you pay for. Well, in this case, I didn't even get anything for what I paid for.
