I am a small business owner with a lot at stake. I ran into this company without knowing the lengths of damage they could cause to my business. After I was scammed, I came to know more stories about the firm. They have scammed other small businesses as well.
I would try to keep it as brief as possible and yet including every important incident. I do not want other to meet the same fate and be alarmed. This is the sole reason for me to take out time and post this report here. These guys are shameless and can go to any lengths for ripping you off.
I assigned them for my medical company related website and they agreed to do it. After taking $6000 and four months, they came up with nothing. When I asked for the reason, they said that they were waiting for the remaining funds. They should have at least talked to me about it. 100% advance payment does not look a legit option.
However, we did everything to keep the job ongoing. They took a month more and came up with a design that I could have done it myself. When I asked for changes, they said to go live first and then they can make the changes.
I checked their terms and it was written in fine prints that their obligation finishes after the website goes live. That was the reason they were forcing us to make it live. Later, I asked about SEO. This was my second mistake.
When they heard about it, they suggested that I should go for a complete redefining of my website. According to them, SEO was the completely different thing that they needed to bring in a different website for it.
I had already told them that I would be going with SEO in the next step, but they still did not take any note of it. Moving forward, they created a similar website that said it was ours. When the customers filled the form thinking that they were reaching to us they were reaching nowhere.
This was again a tactics to divert the traffic from my existing website to someplace other. Hence, our profit was going down and at the same time, they were parallelly pitching for getting the SEO completed with another website design.
This is a shady business and if this company does not know how to do business, they should better sit in their offices and let the clients find another option. This is cheating, and they should be liable for every problem that was created for our firm’s existence because of them.
Crystal Clear is a fraud and if you wish to save your money, run another way away from them. They cannot be trusted with your data and information. On top of that, it is likely that they would make your business worse. So, do not do any business with these thieves. They will only make excuses and would eat your money without doing anything.
