    Okay guys, I normally don't like doing this but for the sake of helping someone else dodge a bullet so to speak, I'll put this one up.

    About a month ago, I purchased a site for the purpose of having it for a specific affiliate network and niche --- don't we all, anyway? So, well, merchant said turn around for site customization is 7 days max.

    It took ONE BLOODY month and he still didn't have the work completed and complained blah blah because I wanted so many customizations done. Seriously, I mean, on a WP theme, just adding a disclaimer and changing the header and footer from gray to dark blue --- would it take a bloody month?

    Second, the site had many issues with. He had to change the theme because it wasn't loading properly. Seriously, why sell a site if you can't have it load properly?

    It took 20 seconds to load, if anything appeared at all. he was not responding well to emails.

    When I asked for all my script/codes to be installed, he even "lost" the emails.

    The last straw was when I checked my affiliate tracker code and found out that the one installed on my site was actually HIS and not mine --- this was AFTER i told him to install mine and gave it to him 3 damn times.

    Digging through the internet, i found a post on other sites that so happen to complain about the guy, too.

    Nathan Rossiter --- that's his name and the paypal account he uses is [email protected]

    So, guys, beware of this one.

    I did the customizations myself and got help from a friend to install the codes that I needed.

    He will likely be banned from the affiliate network that we are on because I had already spoken with the AM about this jerk.
