Hey just came across your website when I was Googling “Shayan Italia India” and your site came up Page 1. Clicked through and read some of the stories around this guy. I was just recently scammed by Shayan Italia – I’m amazed he even keeps using his name over and over. Wish I had read it sooner because we just suffered a similar scenario to him not paying what was owed. I was delivering 50 articles professionally written for Biryani360.com and usually we require payment up front, but Shayan was adamant about checking the quality of the articles first. So he paid for 20 @ $10 per 400 word article ($200 total) and said he’d pay the remaining $300 when the articles were approved. Well come the week we deliver the articles, no reply. I keep trying to reach him and I just get silence. So I send an email with read-notifications and find out that he IS READING THE EMAILS but just isn’t replying back to us.
Long story short, we are going into Month 2 of asking for payment and sending invoice reminders to no avail. I guess I’ll have to chalk this up to a loss on my end. But thought I’d share my story of running into this guy with you. If you want, I can give you guys screenshots of the chats we had with each other. All he ever kept saying was, “I’m good for the money, why would I lie to you, I’m not a liar.” Like he had been through this all before, and more than just a few times.
In either case, thanks for the site. Like I said, wish I had found it sooner. Makes it easy for people to find out what he’s done. Seems like he pissed off someone in the SEO industry because this site ranks for almost every term for his name.
