Digital Media Services unethical Business Practices
I find it my responsibility to warn the public regarding this company. I spent close to $90, 000 with them. I was stupid enough to not do my research and find this page. Please save yourself some major heart ache.
They took 6 months to design a home page. The page was so bad through multiple revisions that we couldn't use much that was provided.
They gave us some template sub pages, and basically said they were finished with the project. I kid you not!
They outsource their work to third world countries and the designers are the worst I have ever seen. I can tell you that the work on their site looks great, but you wont have access to the owner who designed those pages. That's part of the scam. For my 90K I got a logo and a few really cheap istock photos.
I really hate to complain about companies and rarely do. But I have to say that in the end, they would not even give us the files. We are entering the litigation phase now.
Please Please Please, save your self some money and go with a local designer. For about 10% of what they charge you can get a good site. Keep in mind that if the work was good I wouldn't even complain about the 90K.
They are representing themselves as a top 10 media firm. They are worse than anything coming out of India. In the end our programmer had to provide them with the actual design work. It was worse than anything you could imagine. Consider yourself warned!
SCAM - CHEATERS & LOOTERS
Blue Fountain Media Charges NYC rates, but outsource all their work to cheap designers in Eastern Europe and Russia. bluefountainmedia.com is a scam - they will bill you more hours than it usually takes and result would mean that even if you have to pay a little less hourly rate than most in NYC, you have to pay more for the same work.
Do your won research before your hire them. You are warned.
and more ...

Blue Fountain Media is the worst! This company is the absolute worst. They will promise you the world at first and then fail to keep their promises once they have taken your money. I was very dissastisfied with their services.

I can't speak to their intent, but BFM's work clearly falls far short of their lofty promises. After a year of working with them, I find myself having to basically start over. In addition, while their hourly rate seems reasonable (for NYC), they outsource much of their work to eastern Europe and burn hours at a ridiculous pace. In short, you'll end up spending a lot of money for very little work.
There are better alternatives in the NY area and elsewhere. Seek them out and avoid BFM at all costs!
BTW: Don't be fooled by their glitzy list of clients. If they do in fact work with these companies, I can only assume they provide a much higher level of service than I experienced.

Blue Fountain Media
It seems like now a days its like the wild west out there when it comes to finding a legit internet marketing company.
Blue Fountain Media is one of those scam companies that promises everything but delivers nothing in return.
They charge you top programming and design rates and then farm the work out to Russia. When it comes back it looks like crap.
Watch out for these guys.
