Agency Replaces Client Site With Message Calling Them Souless Dicks After Refusing to Pay
It's what every company who has ever been stiffed on payment wants to do. And Frank Jonen finally did it. R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Go enjoy this now before it gets pulled.
UPDATE 1: Fitness SF disputes Frank Jonen's claims, telling Adweek in a screaming phone call Thursday that Jonen was paid and is now trying to blackmail the company and extort more money from them.
UPDATE 2: Fitness SF gave this statement to Adweek on Friday:
"On Wednesday evening, our domain name Fitness SF was hacked and stolen by an individual named Frank Jonen. Frank was hired on May 16th, 2012 to develop a functional website for our brand. A $5,000 payment was made to him on the same date. In his proposal, he stated that the website would take 10 weeks to complete. He missed numerous deadlines including our brand launch in September. In December, he voluntarily passed the incomplete and non functioning website to our new design firm.
Now, Frank is attempting to portray himself as the victim when truly the victim is Fitness SF as he attempts to get paid for work he did not complete and has decided that blackmail is the way to accomplish that."
Wow, lawyers are definitely being hired.
