[Resolved] Appscrip.сom — Cheated us on our customization project money
Really dunno if these guys are from Indonesia or India - but we got really badly ripped off. Read on: Am a research scholar from California and my wife had this brilliant idea of a mobile app. The software consultants here were real costly & we decided to outsource the work to cheaper and far off places. This is when we hit upon this scam company by name Appscrip.com. All was good in the start as the lead from the company spoke to us over Skype, followed up and spoke real sweet showing off their work ( which we later found was not even done by them- but they just Google'd and showed some links of famous Apps from other countries ) Finally seeing their dedication, We agreed upon to start a project that they quote for near $10K. We paid an advance of $3K and kick started the work. Really dunno what the hell happened to them- 4 days from receiving our money they ceased replying to our emails and stopped picking calls. Once in a while there used to be a mail from their so called co-founder Rahul Sharma ( atleast that is the name he uses - god knows what his real name is ) saying to stop disturbing them & the work is in progress ( and he the cheeks to tell that I will be billed extra for the time he reads my mails and calls !!! ) After 2 month of continues follow ups they told me the phase 1 of the project is done ( which was to be done in 1 week as per contract )- and showed me a piece of crap that could have done by an illiterate in 2 days ! and when we asked for revisions someone came on Skype in the name of Rahul Sharma ( but the voice was a different one now ) and told that we will be billed extra for the corrections. This is when I got to really know that we have already been scammed ! ( the worst part is the PayPal dispute got closed in thier favour - as it was an in-tangible good, and yes the truck load of lies they posted in the PayPal claims section ) I even tried telling them that I will take legal action, but they didnt seem to bother. So I lost my MONEY, TIME and also we were not able to take of our IDEA till now ( recently I saw them market their products saying they help Entrepreneurs - my foot ! in realty they DESTROY ) . My Advice : DONT - DONT - DONT give them upfront money. They will talk sweet, show fake proof, will follow up - DONT FALL for it !! Just say " DO MY WORK & I WILL PAY ". Note : In my research, These guys also go by name 3Embed and some Jigsaw and all crap they can think about. Also please have a look at one of the many rude mails these guys sent me ( attached in this complaint ) ! My Email : [protected]@yahoo.com
