I work for an online advertising company building websites. After making a website for a client, we got an angry email.

Client: The site you made is BORING. You could have looked at my old site? I made it myself and I got a lot of compliments.

I had a look at the old site. It was built on myfreesite.net and featured autoplay music and embedded Eminem videos.

Me: (ignoring the horrors I’d just witnessed) If you’re unhappy with the site, we would be happy to make any edits you request if you can send us some , we politely inform the customer that we would be happy to make any possible edits of he could send through some SPECIFIC changes.

He didn’t reply. I tried to call him several times and sent two follow up emails. A week later he finally replied – I’ve preserved the spelling and formatting of his message:

Client: So where is the site…
Looks like this was just another scam ahhh…
Havent herd from anyone…
No support what so ever
[me] and the girl from 1 phone call all lier’s
Still nothin on Google…
Will have to take to social media on this one to protect other people…
-[customers name] from [business] who has been scammed.

We called him that day, and he approved his site after a 40 minute conversation about how it was “just nice to hear from someone.”



Want to know if freelancing is for you?
