Donovan Lord…or his real name Donovan Lordavan ripped me off using the business name of 8Square. His site for this “company” that is down now was 8Square.com. I needed a web designer for a company I was starting. I went through Thumbtack to get referrals. Dovovan reached out to me almost immediately. He seemed competent, creative and like he was a good business person during our intitial consultation. I paid him a retainer of several thousand dollars to start my website. He insisted that we keep all communication and his design work on a web based communication channel called BaseCamp. At 1st he not only seemed competent, but also he seemed friendly…like a good guy. He asked for more money to continue and complete my website. In total I paid him a bit over $10,000.00. Soon thereafter he became the antithesis of everything he portrayed himself as. He called me on a weekend evening and told me that he was out of town and asked me if I could put money in his account. He told me some lame story. He sounded like he was messed up on something. I told him that I was sorry but I couldn’t. He then started emailing me hateful emails through BaseCamp. He also stopped doing work on my website. I had asked him to make some changes on the stuff he had already designed. He told me he would make the changes. But, he never made changes. At this point; I just tried getting the design work from him that he had done. I decided that I would take it to another web site designer and have that company make revisions and complete my web site. None of this ever got to happen. I woke up one morning (shortly after I had declined to put money in his account) and Donovan had taken everything off of BaseCamp and dissappeared with my money! Then, he put an image of a stack of my business cards on his home page of 8Square.com which had my logo (which I had paid a different designer to create), my name and my phone number on it. He had a logo on his home page that he was a Gold Thumbtack Member. I called Thumbtack several times and told them the aforementioned story. Nothing was ever done about it.
