Hit Web DesignFraud

HIT WEB DESIGNS is a scam just like many others have said. They sound professional starting off and then after they have your credit card info and have milked you on extras, no communication from them at all. A piece of crap first draft website and then nothting further! Do not even talk to these people! Their main phone number no longer works. Web hosting is now with FiberNet they say. I'm cancelling all payments and hope they all rot in hell!

    Great News! HIT Web Design appears to still be in business! They are just operating under a different name. Heritage Web Design LLC and also have spun off their software to ISO Web Works! You can contact them and if HIT Web Design owes you money feel free to contact either business or Leah Young @ [protected]!

    These people have been scammed and defrauded. Attempting to profit there from is inappropriate.
    Anyone who wishes can prepare a site for free at http://demo.joomla.org/ It has been designed for non-programmers to get their sites up quickly and easily. Within minutes or the same day your site is up and running. The site you create will look professionally prepared for free.

    You can do social sites, e-commerce sites, and much much more.
    Who uses Joomla?
    MTV Quizilla
    Here are just a few examples of Web sites that use Joomla:
    * MTV Networks Quizilla (Social networking) - http://www.quizilla.com
    * IHOP (Restaurant chain) - http://www.ihop.com
    * Harvard University (Educational) - http://gsas.harvard.edu
    * Citibank (Financial institution intranet) - Not publicly accessible
    * The Green Maven (Eco-resources) - http://www.greenmaven.com
    * Outdoor Photographer (Magazine) - http://www.outdoorphotographer.com
    * PlayShakespeare.com (Cultural) - http://www.playshakespeare.com
    * Senso Interiors (Furniture design) - http://www.sensointeriors.co.za

    Check out their sample sites and portfolios at http://community.joomla.org/showcase/
    A Joomla site through the Demo is hosted for the first 30 days for free on cloudaccess.net. You can move your site to any hosting company you desire.

    If you need to add a feature to your site like a shopping cart the add-ons are free or have minimal costs of $0-$30. If you wish to change something the software helps you do that for free. If there is a feature that you would like and there is not an add-on available, you can make a request for help. The costs are reasonable. There are no high pressured sales people to worry about.

    Joomla is type of software that allows companies like isowebworks and PPCmanagementllc to produce a website for your review quickly. They are not building your site nor coding to build your site. They use free open source packages like Joomla to build the sites. This software is available to the public (you) for free. Why pay someone else to do this when you can do it yourself with ease and for free. Before you pay someone to build your site give Joomla a try.

    Joomla is a free open source content management system (CMS). Some companies put there name on top of the CMS and call it their product when in fact it is the work of many who have devoted their time to the free open source development projects.

    We are not against anyone choosing to pay someone to create the sites using Joomla. We are only against not giving credit to the free open source community who actually developed the programs such as Joomla and disclosing its usage to the public.

    Because of the short amount of time it takes to build a site with Joomla, use care when paying someone to build your site. Make sure they have actually built sites from scratch and understand CSS, XML, HTML, JavaScript, PHP, Perl, and AJAX at a minimum. Make sure they have and are building some sites from scratch or have disclosed to you that they only use a CMS. Make sure it is disclosed in your contract if they will build the code themselves and have qualified programmers or use free open source software.

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
    1. Never sign a contract that does not provide a full refund if you are not satisfied with the product or service.
    2. Make sure that you do not pay for hosting until your site is live and functioning the way you requested.
    3. Make sure that you ”own” your site code with no strings attached except payment for the building of the site as agreed to in writing.
    4. Never sign an agreement that does not require a deadline for building the site or provides for phased rollout with deadlines of features. You can even request that there is a penalty for each day the site is past the due date to motivate the completion of the site.
    5. Never agree to jurisdiction outside of your own state or country.
    6. Never agree that the full price as been earned or is due unless the site is built to your satisfaction.
    7. Make sure you have documentation of what is in scope of your request and what is out of scope for your request. Get it in writing.
    8. Never let anyone pressure into purchasing anything. Tell them that you need to review it with your partners and that until you have your partner”s sign off you can not make the purchase. Then take the time to research and review the information before you buy. Get a family member or trusted friend to be your partner in helping you make the decision. Get three opinions before you buy. If you are uncomfortable in any way don’t buy. It is better to wait than be sorry.
    9. Always read the terms of the agreement before you sign. If you don’t like the terms you can change them. Any company that is unwilling to work with you on the terms is giving you a sign of what is ahead. Run don’t walk away from a company that is unwilling to work with your terms.

    FYI: The Heraldextra did not check out any facts and therefore its new release is flawed and primarily the words of a criminal defense attorney as well as other releases using this information.

    One must ask who Sonny Olsen actually represents? Kevin Morrill i.e. isowebworks etc or Heritage Management Services, LLC aka Heritage Web Solutions aka Hit Web Design aka David Aiken, Mark Strong, Leah Young, Eddie Dockery, Bradford Stone? Remember that Kevin Morrill was a key management member of HIT and is family related to David Aiken. He claims to have quit March 4, 2011, the day that employees at Hit were made aware of the lies that were being told. Kevin claims to start up a new company within 4 days with 20 new employees from HIT. That takes a lot of capital, equipment, software and leads etc.
    Why has Sonny Olsen participated in a campaign to clear Kevin Morrill and isowebworks. Isn’t this a conflict of interest?

    Kevin Morrill told employees he was in the same boat as them. Kevin did not sleep in his car in the freezing cold because he was locked out of his apartment because he was not paid his wages. Kevin Morrill did not beg for patience to keep a roof over his head because he was not paid his waged for weeks and weeks. Kevin Morrill was paid.

    One must ask how much money was taken from people under false or misrepresentation of products or services when the tax bill is 17.1 million. If 17.1 is representative of a 20 percent tax that would make the take $204 million dollars from around the world. Not to mention the Hatti donations that HIT took from its employees and the public. No one has released any confirmation that the funds taken in for Hatti actually went to Hatti. HIT web pages requesting donations for Hatti were up days before its closing and were taken down quickly upon notice of a criminal investigation. Is this a coincidence?

    HIT’s web pages for sales leads remained up and running for days before posting a notice of its closing.

    Any former customer of HIT who has been contacted by Isowebworks, PPC Management or any related company should contact the Utah County Attorney’s office directly.

    Ask yourself if the same people are running a new company with the same equipment, the same people, the same software that they have placed their new logo on, why would you expect different results?

    ISO Webworks has been in business for one week... The Owner of ISO Webworks is Kevin Morrill and he was a bigwig at HIT Web Design and was mysteriously laid off on March 8th. I called the number [protected] several times and all of the customer service agents (today was their first day) gave me this information. They were all being coached by someone (background voices), and when I began asking the tough questions I got disconnected. When I asked what the CEO's name was they made it VERY CLEAR that the "OWNER's" name was Kevin Morrill. I asked for the "OWNER's" email address and they said it was
    [email protected] Interesting, because the complaint email addressfor Kevin Aidken at HIT Web Design was '[email protected]'!!! What a BIG SCAM! Can the UTAH ATTORNEY GENERAL or anybody Stop this MADNESS?????

    The County Atttoney is very interested in hearing from you. The more witnesses the better. The County Attorney has the authority to bring criminal charges. It is good to voice yourselves...be part of making history in Utah and stand up, give your testimony to put a final end to this con game. It took a lot of effort and courgage to get it this far, please don't let this opportunity to participate in bringing these criminals to justice pass you by. Stand up and be heard in the courts. Contact the county attorney's office with any information. Let us hold HIT managment and owners accountible for the injuries their choices have caused.

    How does a Vice President just quit the same day he claims to open a new business patterned after the old with the same people at the helm. David Aitken was not alone in his con game. The above knew or should have known and done something to stop the con but did nothing. If they had stood up for what was right, had they been willing to stand for truth, the injuries that have been suffered by so many would not have occured .

    If you have not done it already, do a credit card dispute with all details as soon as possible! Sooner the better. Tell your Credit Card company they've closed doors, and provide them details from the links on here, and also there are news stories about them closing in the Salt Lake Tribune: http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/home/51396199-76/heritage-customers-company-fibernet.html.csp

    Provide as many details as you can, get your money back! Wish you best of luck!

    Many of us have been dupped by this company and there is an investigation going on now by the Utah County Investigative Services. You are requested to call them and leave your name, number, and email address. They will send you a complaint form via email that you can return by email or regular mail. Please call [protected]. You will most likely get a recorded message from Jennifer as they are receiving MANY calls about this. Hopefully justice will be done!
    Apparantly HIT WEB DESIGNS is continuing their fraud under another name: Here is their website and it sure looks like the same website layout. http://isowebworks.com/
    BEWARE! Hope they catch these ba$tards!

    HIT web Design owes me $400.00 for services they didn't finish. Its been almost a year to work on a simple website that was supposed to be finished eight months ago. Beware of this company. After they charge your card they never return phone calls. I turned them into the BBB and was told this company was out of business. I'm filing a complaint with the DA and Police Department.

    I suggest that you follow my steps to get your money back, and hopefully you used your VISA or MasterCard when you went with Hit Web Design, because if you went with American Express or Discover Card it will be harder to get your money back.

    Step 1: Call your Bank or Credit Card company, and do a charge back. Do not let hit get any more of your money and try to get as much of it back as you can.
    Step 2: Contact the Utah Attorney General's Office and file a formal complaint with them about your relationship with Hit Web Design.
    Step 3: Contact the BBB and file a formal complaint with them.
    Step 4: Contact your local newspaper, radio and TV station and inform them of your experience.
    Step 5: post ALL over the internet your experience, and post your results!

    Won't bore you with more of the same. Fraudulent offering of services to build you a "custom" web site. Their entire product is built on FREE software that anyone can use like squirrelmail and zen cart. There is no custom design. What they put together takes someone about 20 minutes. They can not deliver a custom design and certainly not an ecommerce web site! After 5 months I was forced to realize that they are a fraud and can not deliver the web site that they promised, and I have wasted a lot of valuable time. I found the people at American Express most helpful in the dispute. If you have been ripped off too, do two things. Contact your credit company and dispute the payments and send a full set of documentation to both the CC company and the Utah Attorney General.

    Friendly salesperson chris assured me my credit card info was used only to hold the account info so I would not have to start all over if my company wanted to proceed. My company did not end up proceeding and I was charged anyways. Both speaking clear English. Now I have spent over 20 hours trying to get my money back that was stolen and it is evident that this company is really great at giving the run around. 6 months they tell me just to process!!
