Jorge Alfredo Márquez Fagoaga / Strung me along
I contacted Jorge Alfredo Márquez [censored]oaga to see if he could edit a document for me. He really wanted the job, so we discussed payment several times with Jorge Alfredo Márquez [censored]oaga always contacting me back very quickly, several times a day in fact.
Finally I hired him via oDesk & then he never did the work. I didn't know when he was going to get the edited file back to me, so I messaged him & never heard back from him for 2 days. He ONLY messaged me back when I told him that I was going to complain to oDesk, then suddenly he had the time to message me.
He said he was too busy to respond to my message which is clearly very unprofessional & I told him that it only takes 5 minutes or less to respond with when he was going to do the work. It seems Jorge Alfredo Márquez [censored]oaga doesn't have 2 minutes to respond with an answer, but he's not too busy to respond when he thinks I'm going to complain.
He said he was going to do the work that day, that the deadline was that day, something I didn't realize.
Did he do the work? No, he didn't.
Finally 2-3 days later I told him I was going to cancel the project & submit a negative review. Instead of Jorge Alfredo Márquez [censored]oaga dealing with his terrible service, he cancels the project & then lies saying the job wasn't as advertised. I discussed in detail what was needed with this document & not once did Jorge Alfredo Márquez [censored]oaga ask me any questions, which is further proof that he knew what was going on.
I guess Jorge Alfredo Márquez [censored]oaga doesn't take responsibility for his actions & feels the need to lie to make himself out to be the one who was wronged. What upsets me is all the time that was wasted dealing with him & not one thing got accomplished. He had practically begged me for the work & we conversed at least 7-10 times via e-mail.
Unfortunately this is typical of many independent contractors online. They will make every effort to get the job & then never do the work once they have it. Logical? Not to me.
