We consider her a friend and value her ideas and suggestions. We will definitely use her again for future projects.
And since my architect already redid the master bedroom and I was happy with it, I saw no point of paying 2 different resources for the same thing, I asked DGMI not to work on master bedroom floor plan but to focus on finish design as he was hired to do. DGMI agreed but next day sent over a draft of design of entire upper floor - redesigning floor plan of entire 2nd floor was never part of the scope. I was not happy about it, and once again asked him to just focus on interior finish design, which he replied to say ok. My instinct somehow sensed something uneasy, so I adjusted the Bill Pay to move out the advance payment date and informed DGMI about it. 3 days later, he emailed to say that he hadn't received the advance payment and wanted to know why.
Seeing how DGMI was less interested in providing good customer service and more interested on getting pre-payment, I decided not to work with him, and offered to pay total of $300 for exchanging various email messages up to that point - some billable, most of emails were not billable. I called the bank to place stop-payment on the $500 payment as it was already in processing state and I couldn't make any change online, and issued new payments total to $300.
DGMI was offended by my decision, and here are some of the messages from DGMI after being dismissed...
From DGMI dated 9/19/2014 with insults, name-calling, threat of court action
I am not threating you of court action for I promising that I will
take you to court. You can respond by paying your agreed to bill in a transfer.
You clearly are working a con.
Make a payment as promised. Yes, I am aware that you took
contractor to court. Now, after working with you one has to question
whether that was legit or were you again trying to get something for nothing.
One, you know very little about design and two, your honesty is at stake.
This is a very small community. Your reputation IS at stake. Actually, you have
already blown that up too.
There is NO reason for you to respond further, do not
waist more time, for you have already wasted too much, simply pay your commitments
to your bills. Your emails will not be read, only my
bank statement will be and a transfer should be read there by the end of
today’s business day. Otherwise I have no interest
in reading your blather.
Follow up message from DGMI dated 9/19/2014 when we didn't wire the money he demanded, again name-calling, threatening, etc.
May you also say that you represent
he is taking your positon as your partner in this matter.
May, you and on
today at the end of business. Your partnership is again misrepresented
anything and all that you have said to be true on this project. One can
only also assume, that you are both con-artists.
You both have three days to correct this matter. Transfer the funds by
the end of business, 5:00 PST Monday the 22nd. the autumnal equinox. Otherwise
additional hourly costs will be assessed, court costs will be incurred and you
will have again wasted everyone’s time. It is just like as you did by
will continue to follow. That is some pretty bad
putting out there.
So, let me ask you; what are you willing to pay to support your
From DGMI dated 9/26/2014 upon receiving my email with excel mapping of our email exchanges and billability
May, I am not a psychologist or do I play one, however IMHO, you’re psychotic. Your psychological projections are clearly stated in all of your emails and you continue your miss-stepping.
Every item that I billed you is in regards to your project, that is emails and all other communications. Every moment spent even thinking about you is billable. More emails from you is NOT going to lower your bill. You still have not paid what you agreed to pay. You are simply dishonest. Your, “style,” of dishonesty must have gotten you somewhere and to where you are today. Congratulations! Take your business elsewhere. Let me say that again,GO! I have provided you with what we agreed. You simply disagree about the bill. Your
Your bill is very past due which again illustrates, to all, that you lie. AGAIN, GO! I had thought that you were an honest player, which you prove that you are not. I will not work for you. It is too bad that your, “team,” members are still playing with you. They should maybe reconsider.
Let me also remind you that all of your documents are public. JUST GO!
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
