Sorry for getting back to you so late,have been very busy ,i will like to discuss with you about the website.

I just opened a restaurant in Miami,Florida USA and i need you to get the website designed for me in due time which will not be more than 3 weeks.I have a supervisor who is in charge of the logos and the text contents for this website so you do not need to be worried about that.All you will need to do after providing you with the logos,image artwork and text contents is building the website and developing it for 1 year including updating.

However,i need you to check this sample website . Its a lovely,simple and straight forward website that is located in Amarillo Texas,This sample website captivated my mind so much,hence the reason why i need you do something as simple has that.So kindly get back to me with an estimation,the estimate should include the hosting too.I want you to take note of the following;

*I do not want a shopping cart in my observation page,i don't.
*I don't have a domain name yet so i prefer the name PETALRESTAURANT.COM
*You will be responsible for the development for a period of 1 year
*I do not want a live chat included
*My budget is not more than $5100 for the website

I also want to know if your company accept check payment ?Am in Canada right now so i want the site running up before i get back to Florida in the next 3 weeks.Kindly check the sample website,then get back to me with an estimate price.

Follow Ups/Extra Information. Most recent is listed first.
this person sent me an email about developing a website for him and he would give me $5100 in total for that. He said that he'd give half payment first and then the rest half once the website is completed. I asked him many a times how much payment is he going to send but he never replied me about this and then suddenly after letting me know that his card doesn't work and he'll send me a cheque of the payment, and again, he didn't let me know how much amount's cheque is he going to send. He sent my friend a cheque as I asked him to send it to my friend who lives in U.S. He sent my friend a cheque of more than the total amount on project discussed totalling to $5700 and then told me that he has mistakenly sent that amount of cheque and asked me to send the excessive amount to another person in U.S. to which he owes money. The cheque was sketchy and flagged as fraud by the bank and my friend who deposited the cheque in his bank, his account along with his personal card balance got blocked by the bank as the cheque got bounced.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
