If you have been following the story of the electrician that lost his domain name because the website designers in India forgot to renew the domain name (so they claimed) and it was later registered to someone who then made a clothing site even though the keywords in the domain name did not appertain to the inventory on the site.
Since then my client sent an invoice for the loss of business and a covering letter saying he would be taking legal action the website designers then sent my client an email, saying they would re-design the site and instructed him to clear his cookies and caches.
So this means they are associated with the person who registered the domain in bad faith.
This is how the site looked like before it was taken down with the clothing inventory.
And this is how it looks like now:
So this person has lied through his teeth, said he did not know who registered the domain and upon receiving an invoice took the website down.
Since I got involved with this I have had multiple phishing emails coming into my inboxes on a daily basis, I do not know if it is coincidence as I cannot prove anything, but it seems fishy to me.
I have now registered on behalf of my client and we have a contract in place the dot UK version of the .co.uk which is now pointing to his website I built for him courtesy of someone I was talking to on Namepros.com forum about this.
So this web designer has lost all hope in hell of my client ever doing business with this company in India ever again.
I certainly would not go to these lengths to keep a client as it is unprofessional and underhand and just gives a bad name for people in the industry that want to make an honest living.
Anyone reading this should avoid this person and the company like the plague or in the present climate the coronavirus.
Stay safe people and support local businesses, they need you right now.
