  • image of freakweb 100 Press Release Project - $ 3 Each $300.00 USD

    “She took the project committing 5 to 10 PR/day. She then came up with a reason that she had no internet to work, then she came up with a reason she had no electricity, then again came up with Fire in house. Then suddenly she aborted the project and behaved really unprofessional. See her project completion rate, its too POOR. Beware of such time waster, they are not reliable and unethical towards work. Highly NOT RECOMMENDED for serious work.”
