TradeMarkMG : EvansPress.com
TradeMark Media Group now goes by the name EvansPress.com! Many may remember the incident that happened about a year ago with TradeMark Media Group, LLC, but it wasn’t pretty. In short on that story the owner of the company, Johnathan Evans had been taking jobs knowing they could not be completed, rigging websites and projects (with SEO materials to hype his own site and other “clients sites”) and releasing materials knowing there were bug and major security holes — the main issue I remember is with Carolina Cars and Trucks, where and to quote, “I’d rather be done with this project tomorrow than have to spend five hours fixing this dumb exploit.” I know, I use to work with John. Let just say I didn’t hang around long being someone of US Army background and deep southern morales.
Now here is the kicker, after I left, and everything was said and done with, he tried claiming “rights” to software my company had created during the time I had worked for him (this is in official legal documentation at Wayne Co. Clerk of Courts) that was created on MY OWN TIME. He claimed “creative rights” which I found to be bogus as a dealership can’t claim ownership of a mechanic’s car whom built his car in his off-hours.
This part I hope really helps:
IF YOU ARE A CUSTOMER OR A FUTURE CUSTOMER OF EVANSPRESS
- DO NOT PAY FOR ANYTHING UP-FRONT
- DO NOT PAY FOR PARTIALLY COMPLETED WORK!!!!
- NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER PAY FOR A PROMISE!
- ASK A 3RD PARTY TO CHECK HIS WORK FOR BUGS AND SECURITY EXPLOITS!
Remember that Mr Evans is not from this area, he pretends to be so you’re trust is open to him, and then he takes advantage of the openness and hospitality of our southern business owners.
IF YOU ARE AN EMPLOYEE OR PROSPECTIVE EMPLOYEE
- LOG EVERYTHING AND EVERY CONVERSION — IF MR EVANS PROMISES A COMMISSION, SALARY ETC, FORCE HIM TO TYPE IT UP AND SIGN IT. Else your salary will change on a weekly (sometimes daily) basis.
- NEVER EVER ENGAGE IN ANY ACTIVITIES THAT HE CAN HOLD AGAINST YOU FOR PROFESSIONAL MEANS OR PERSONAL! I remember going to several bars with him in which he had a girl pose next to me after I was drunk — hell I didn’t care and still don’t, but he thought my wife might care so when I left, he sent me a blackmail letter that I STILL HAVE validated by Google Staff that his address sent it from their own servers. Thankfully, my wife just laughed as she saw the picture and said, “Damn you were drunk!”.
- NEVER EVER EVER ALLOW HIM TO BE LATE ON PAYING YOU! IF YOU DO NOT CLAIM YOUR CHECK IMMEDIATELY HE HAS BEEN KNOWN TO SAY HE HAD ALREADY PAID YOU IN CASH!
- CONTRACT CONTRACT CONTRACT! GET A CONTRACT OR GET PAID BY THE HOUR SO THE NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF LABOR CAN PROTECT YOU!
I do hope I have helped and be aware that many sites have rated TradeMarkMG.com as being very untrustworthy (from his former customers) so just be aware that EvansPress.com is run by the SAME PERSON.
