I needed help with my Wordpress blog, and I put an ad on Craigslist. After getting an email reply, I met with this guy Scott Hawkins in a Cafe, he convinced me that he could do the work I needed done quickly. I payed him $300 in a check.
He doesn't answer his phone. A week later he spent about 5 minutes messing up my blog and then he sent me an email saying he did some work. The email was obviously meant to confuse me. He hadn't actually done anything I asked him to. He didn't respond to my emails after that.
Then I found this site and realized I'd been robbed.

Here is original email reply he sent me:

Hi, my name is Scott Hawkins...saw your ad and my specialty is Wordpress.
Below are some recent examples of Wordpress sites I've done.

It sounds like you have a lot of issues...I'm sure I can help on many if not all of them...so let's find out!

Let's talk, I need the work and you need the job done right :)
This can can be done TODAY if we can meet to discuss and get started.
I'm coming into the City, the Mission, after 2PM.

thanks!

Nice to know this con artist is back in the Bay Area. If you set up another meeting with him please let me know.

Scott (Tex) built a website for me and did a great job... Where I went wrong is switching my hosting to him. Since I had lost my previous website because the host did not have a back up Scott suggested I allow him to host. He stated he always had 2 back up copies of my site on different servers. I asked for a back up zip for myself and never received it. Skip ahead 4 months, a client called and said my site was down and that it showed the domaine was for sale. Of course, I called "Tex" immediately, he assured me it was just a Wordpress issue and he would have it back up. After months of him assuring me that he would relaunch my site tomorrow, he stopped returning texts, emails, and phone calls. I served him with a demand letter as a precursor to small claims court for reimbursement of my original site as well as the cost of having it built by another designer. He said he would pay me and asked if he could make payments. I agreed to a good faith payment...never received...of course. I am now pursuing it in small claims but wouldn't you know it, now I can't find him to serve him. This sucks on so many levels, but the sad part is he knows his stuff, but apparently cannot help himself from breaking his contractual commitments. If anyone knows where he is currently, I'd be thrilled if you would share the information with me.
