Here's mine from elance when I needed to get a site converted to wordpress and ended up hiring a so-called "company" from a certain region in South Asia. Writing up the whole thing would take too long, so here are some tl;dr bullet points. - Trying to sound all professional, nearly every other word is misspelled. At least i got a good laugh. - Project was supposed to take two weeks, a month in they say it's impossible to keep the links intact, even tough the project description emphasized over and over that it's the most important part - Whole project ended up taking 6 months instead of 2 weeks. - Threatened to sue me ("breech") after I end project prematurely. Apprently I needed their consent to fire them. - Malware found within a week after project ends I've learned from the whole thing to keep outsourcing to the minimum because it's really hard to trust people on the internet, especially those in third world countries. Share some of your experiences and maybe the people new to IM won't have to go through this shit.
