Howard Davidson, a supposed ‘advertising and marketing expert’ staying in Arlington, MA, is a burglar, phony and deadbeat.
I just recently had the tragedy to come across Mr. Davidson on oDesk, the globe’s biggest freelancing system. He required some basic manuscript modifying done, inning accordance with the work uploading he made there.
I replied to his task publishing as a prospective prospect. He messaged me and also asked if I would certainly do a part of the work totally free for him “as an example”, so he can choose the most effective professional for the task.
I informed him that requesting ‘complimentary examples’ went against the Terms of Service of oDesk, which I do not do complimentary examples, as I am a reputable supplier with a well-founded credibility as well as job background on that particular system.
I clarified I would certainly enjoy to do a very brief examination editing and enhancing for $5 though, as well as he approved this deal.
After providing the web content, he chose not to pay. He asserted that I had actually altered the ‘message’ of his duplicate or something, which I most surely did not.
Currently, I’m not aiming to make an attract authority below, yet I have actually created thousands of hundreds of bucks in earnings as an author, as well as have openly offered comments for nearly every little thing I’ve ever before done. My credibility is perfect.
He currently contends the very least another circumstances of failing to pay on his publically offered company background.
After talking extra with him, he divulges that he was dismayed due to the fact that he really did not desire his duplicate modified, he had just desired it proofed.
I mentioned to him that the work uploading and also all his direction and also interactions with me made use of words ‘modify’, which despite whether he was pleased with the imaginative deliverable, he still needed to pay.
He really did not, and also has actually simply abandoned an open agreement, shutting it without any repayment whatsoever. I understand this is just over $5, however it’s the entire concept of things that matters to me. I do not like it when thieving little rats similar to this take job from others; if he does it to me, he’ll do it to others.
What truly secured the bargain was when I Googled ‘Howard Davidson Arlington’ and also discovered that Mr. Davidson currently has actually been reported right here prior to, for something a little bit extra risque. Go review the record on him from when he was associated with piehead.com; YIKES!
Anyways, it resembles Mr. Davidson is having troubles discovering work as an advertising and marketing expert, most likely because of his actions and also online reputation. I wish this contributes to that worry for him.
Oh, another point to any kind of potential company; it appears like Mr. Davidson has actually been subcontracting a lot of the ‘advertising’ job he likely declares as his very own to individuals in India and also the 3rd globe for $2/hr. He has actually numerous published tasks on oDesk. He likewise lately paid a person to upgrade his return to on that particular system. Be cautious!
