Catfished by Patrick Ambron – New York! I contacted Patrick Ambron after I found few negative reviews about my company. I called BrandYourSelf to help me delete or suppress those posts on Google.
Patrick and his company BrandYourSelf works for suppressing negative comments and he promised to assist me in getting rid of those posts. I gave him all the links that I wanted to put down in search result.
He asked me to make the payment in advance for every month while he worked to suppress the posts. I was fine with the standard plan which was for $399.99/month. However, he suggested to choose the professional plan that was for $599.99 per month.
I was naïve and he knew everything about the service he was offering. Hence, I did as he said. He told me that the professional plan will be valuable for longer run and will make sure once the posts are suppressed, they do not appear again on the top pages. Patrick is a great marketer. He is confident and knows what he is talking about.
This makes him seem legitimate which he is not. Patrick is a fraud and I started realizing it as soon as I stopped paying him. He is unethical and follows wrong practice to run his company. It would be no wonder if he lies to you for making fast money. As he did in my case.
He promised that the posts would be deleted in few months and never told that it would take so long. While I was in the process of finalizing the company for my problem, I spoke to few more companies and they suggested that the results can’t be delivered so soon. However, Patrick from BrandYourself said that he can do what no one else can do.
That was the reason I chose him over others. But, he failed to do so. When I asked for an explanation, he said that there are few things that we only discover after we start working on the project. He took 8 months to suppress three posts. The budget was getting out of hand. I paid him in advance for 8 consecutive months and the desired results was far to be seen.
I called him and asked him to cancel the subscription. I wanted some refund as well as he was not able to deliver what he promised. But, he gave me list of things that he did in past 8 months and said that he had charged a lot less than what he worked. Finally, I asked him to close the project.
It was after a month of cancelling the services from BrandYourself, I found those three posts on the top page of google. It was frustrating to feel cheated. I called Patrick and he said that he had warned me not to stop services from him. The way he spoke it seemed that he had played his tricks to get those links back on the first page.
Patrick is an unprofessional guy and should not be entertained. I was scammed out of $4800. He never paid back my money and got me to the same position I was earlier after spending such a huge amount. If you ever get a call from Patrick, make sure you know what you are getting yourself into. He can ruin your reputation and will take away your money.
