    Hi MickLawn,

    We have searched our database for MickLawn and nothing comes up.

    You have not mentioned your full name, email or website so we cannot verify thos review

    It appears you're not a client of ours and this is a fake review which will be shortly flagged.

Resolved failed to follow design brief and left the site barely useable after more than 12 months work

A clear and concise brief was provided to engage this company to finalise our website, along with example of other website designs as a template. The company continually did small parts of the job and demanded a rushed signoff to confirm each stage was working. At so called completion the design was nothing like what we asked for, the functionality is faulty and the customers cannot work the site. We have tried dozens of times and spent hundreds of hours trying to get the developer to fix the poor workmanship, but they claim they have done the job and any requests to fix the poor workmanship is merely a change request and want more money. When asked to check the site functionality themselves they ignore the request and simply say we signed off on each stage. The fact remains that the finished product is not fully functional and is of very low standard. They take no responsibility for the fact that they have not finished the site properly. It is not only filled with poorly designed functionality it also is full of bad grammar and sections that don't work at all. This developer has not only cost us money in lost time, lost sales and the cost of development but damage to our reputation with our clients. We would strongly recommend to avoid using them at all costs. Despite many many requests to review and fix the poor design and evidence provided of same, they refuse and call us liars. We would have no need to complain if they had in fact done the job they promised to do.

The complaint has been investigated and resolved to the customer's satisfaction.

    Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
    Why do we use it?

    It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

    Where does it come from?

    Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.
    Where can I get some?

    There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Resolved web design

Direct Web Design aka You Go Designs all belonging to Roman Shashkoff of 24 Howey Road Packenham, Melbourne [protected] / [protected]), were engaged to design a website (fairly simple one - informative only, not transactional) for a new business. Constant delays and excuses followed their inept and incomplete efforts (and I use that loosely) ending by simply just being ignored.

Finally delivered a partial, non-functioning, unusable website and then refused to update, complete or rectify, or take any responsibility, requiring me to start again with a competent and professional company and delaying our launch. Roman refused to take any responsibility (when I finally got him to communicate) or to refund for an incomplete and worthless service. In fact he wanted more money.

Roman uses the ABN for You Go Designs on his Direct Web Design invoices - maybe that saves on Tax reporting.

He works from home and doesn't have any business infrastructure as stated, like "offices throughout Australia". But his website is good, I'll say that. I'm guessing he outsourced that one. But not to India...

As also noted by the many other complainants, we also had our services outsourced to a guy called Pritam at Fourtune Design in India. We found this out later. You can speak to Pritam direct rather than put up with the rubbish excuses you'll see from Roman to the many complaints on this site.

Email : [protected]@gmail.com
Skype : tanusri_fourtunedesign
Call : +[protected] / +[protected]

I see that Roman uses the same old excuses for all of these complaints by blaming the complainant and saying people are anonymous, or that these are competitor staged complaints etc. Not true. Go to Consumer Affairs Victoria and search him. This guy relies upon the fact that clients are either located away from Melbourne and the costs are not high enough to justify civil action, so he just takes your money, sends it to Pritam and maybe he will or won't get it right and then if its wrong, blames you and moves on to the next sucker.

If you must use this "business", don't pay until you're happy. Hope you're not in a rush.

And I'm not anonymous. And I never had "Customer Service" make every effort to help me. There is no Customer Service department or staff. It's all just Roman and service is not a word he knows.

Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

    Where does it come from?

    Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.
    Where can I get some?

    There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

    Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Resolved web site design

Roman took months and months to design my website. It was clear someone from overseas was hired to complete the task and if we wanted to deal with someone who was not fluent in english we would have opted for a much cheaper service overseas. The content we submitted was never displayed how we had sent it the pictures were stretched and everything had spelling or grammar errors Roman stated 'we don't really care about spelling errors as long as the site is running because you can go in and fix that later' this led to us having to waste time constantly scanning the site for errors and it was painful going back and forth with him. It was clear he lacked common sense. On top of that they would fix one error and suddenly the next page that was previously error free would have a huge error. Now our website is FINALLY completed after months and months of going back and forth and Roman taking AGES to complete the most simple of tasks but we now have issues with our pricing suddenly changing to 'sale' prices that we never requested or agreed to. So our customers have been purchasing from our site overnight and we are constantly waking up to having sold products at ridiculously low prices due to this mistake which Roman has tried to say was our own. However we literally have not changed a thing on the website. Roman is also constantly MIA when you need assistance. Avoid this web developer like the plague he is absolutely TERRIBLE. We are now sourcing someone else to step in and fix up all the mistakes wasting even more money.

    Hi there CEB88,

    You have not mentioned your name, website address or any form of contact details proving you're one of our clients.

    This review seems highly exaggerated and appears to be the work of one of our competitors trying to place a false claim on our highly regarded reputation of over 4, 500+ websites we have built.

    It is easy for anyone to go online and easily post a fake review and this review has no mention of the clients name, website address, email address or any contact details, so it seems a bit suspicious.

    PLEASE BE AWARE THIS IS A FAKE SPAM REVIEW!

Hi everyone I got scammed $300 by this guy called ROMAN today! I'm going to cut an past an email which I received after I asked for a refund, I asked for a refund because it's been weeks and it's no we're nere finished and his trying to make me pay the other 50% of the money for an unfinished product. here goes

Hi Lisa,

I do everything via email, not phone calls.

The original website questionnaire on the last page in the Terms & Condition's mentions that once a design has been approved
and you tell us to proceed ahead and build the layout you then receive 2 rounds of changes.

As mentioned on the phone you can log into the website and make the changes yourself as the website has an admin portal
so you can easily log in and update content and images.

Please be aware deposit payments are non-refundable

I tried being civil with you and building your website but you just can't seem to get it through your head that
you can make the changes yourself and you keep sending changes

Just be aware that if you do not pay the website final invoice within 24 hours we will be posting up 10 negative reviews about your business every week
which will destroy your business and reputation, we have done this before to other people who have not paid us or either decided to post up a negative review
and we had damaged their online reputation so bad they had to shut their business down and file for bankruptcy.

It is easy for us just to spend $12 and register a brand new website domain name and build a new website but how easy is it for you to
repair your name's reputation.

You do not know who you have messed with and if you think I am joking see what happens in 24 hours if the final invoice is not paid.

    I would like to pass great thanks to Direct Web Design (Roman) for helping me design and set-up my company Website.

    We are Consulting Engineering firm operating from Queensland, Australia. I tried to get design and set-up my company Website for the last 22 years (since 1996) – all approaches was unsuccessful. Several companies and people start doing my website, take the money and never completed.

    Recently I come across Direct Web Design (Roman) who finally design, set-up and completed my company Website. The Direct Web Design Team was very helpful and co-operative during the whole process of Website development.

    The all work done by Direct Web Design was excellent, conducted in a very professional manner and completed at specified time.

    I am very happy and thankful to Direct Web Design (Roman) Staff for their dedication and excellent standard of work. I love my new website and its functionality.

    I have no hesitation to recommend Direct Web Design to anyone who wants best service and best value for money. Thanks Roman

Resolved website design

This guy Roman appears lovely at first, until her gets all his money and then it was very hard to get hold of him. I have had to employ someone else to help finish off my website. This person has discovered that Roman had links going to incorrect pages, my paypal account was set up with someone elses email address who I have never met, my newsletter subscribers were set up to go to an email address that didnt belong to me. I was promised ongoing support with my website after it was built however was basically told by Roman that he is too busy to help. I have spent over $400 having my website fixed by someone else who is fixing all of Romans stuff ups. My new IT person told me the website is sent to India to be built and basically that this company is a scam. He now wont give me my hosting log in details, making it hard for me to trasnfer to another company. Do yourself a favour and do not eomply this puppet!

    I have had the same trouble with Roman. I have only paid the deposit which is enough. He didnt read my instructions and produce it the way I wanted. I kept on sending word doc set out the way I wanted but they just couldnt follow it. When I sent in a long list of complaints and asked for my deposit refunded all went quiet. Glad I ddint pay the full amount. I wonder if I will see my deposit?

Resolved web page design

I wrote a response in relation to the webpage being designed by Roman under the name of Mr Pee, It seems that somewhere in my complaint the word "stolen" has been inserted and if read ion conext is grammatically incorrect and not written by myself. I write again to clarify templates are used on this site, I did not suggest in my initial complaint that they were stolen. What I am outlining is that the advertising suggests that no templates are used, however templates are in fact used through Word Press.
I have not heard from the complaints department regarding this issue and I would be silly to post my webpage at this time while Direct Web Design still have access to the site.

The complaint has been investigated and resolved to the customer's satisfaction.

    Hi Mr Pee, if that is your real name, so you had posted up a review 4 months ago saying that we use stolen templates but are unable to provide any evidence or proof that we use stolen templates and is just a random accusation on this and now you post up a new review saying that we do not use stolen templates and your original review was not written by yourself, this does seem a little odd.

    What makes it even more suspicious is that we had responded back to your original review asking you for your name, email or website address so that you can prove that you actually are one of our clients but yet you're not providing this information, so how do we know if you're not a competitor just posting up a fake review trying to damage our brand reputation.

    Please respond back with your name, email or website address otherwise this review will be deemed as a fake review.

    As it has now been over 7 days with no response this review is now closed and marked as a fake spam review.

Resolved cannot do the job promised

In October 2017 I was told in writing by this company they could design a certain website for me, I gave extensive instructions and they did some design but then towards the end started (December 2017) saying they were having some troubles and then I gave them other ways to handle it and then communication got slower and slower from them and then now I still haven't heard from them for resolution and it is almost February 2018.
They have taken almost $2, 000 and still asked me for more money for certain plugins and refuse to answer any emails.
Scammers! They promise the world and cannot deliver at all.
