Fraud by ASC Technologies and Darrick Addison
He never said no to any payment invoice raised and will send a wire transfer email confirming fund transfer is in progress which never reached us. When we escalated he blamed his finance person Lakendra Talton for the mess. Even this finance person sent so many fake emails and assured the payment would hit our account citing odd reasons for last failures like entering wrong account no in wire transfer.
We worked for more than 2 months genuinely believing the technical issues in payment transfer. When we mounted pressure for payment he sent a small amount via transferwise saying rest would come via bank wire transfer which never happened. When work was almost completed he stopped our access to remote machine and probably asked his team or some other team to take care of any future work.
He stopped responding to our emails and phone calls. Most likely his team messed up the setup and his end client an industrial company dealing in welding /cutting machines got frustrated. He contacted us again and asked us to fix the issues saying he was out of station hence couldn't respond to our calls or emails. We asked him to clear pending payments before we fix the mess created by someone else. He said he would transfer funds in a day and would fire the accountant. We waited another day and next day he said unless we work on remote machine and fix issues which were not created by us we would not get any payment and he would use our code and get it redeployed by someone else and pay us nothing.
Since by now we had understood about his tactics we refused to work and he ran away with our hard earned money. If you are a client, a freelancer or a company working or dealing with him or his company be aware and do full research about him. When looking for legal advice we found following frauds done by him earlier-
