Public Record
Arbitration Summary for project Marketing Research on website
Buyer: safrica2
Seller: Amir Ali Tayaab of Zen Marketing ( )
Issue: Alleged fraud by Amir Ali Tayaab (seller) by safrica2 (buyer)

1) Amir Ali Tayyab entered into arbitration because the project he did for safrica2 (the buyer) was a marketing project. He was to determine the top 5 companies by market share in several markets and do reports. While safrica2 received reports, he suspected Amir had not done proper research because the top companies he expected were not his list. So he asked RAC to investigate.

2) In arbitration Amir Ali Tayyab admitted that he had not done any research but "relied on his 15 years of knowledge" as well as allegedly calling some expense to him from Pakistan. He was informed that while calling companies from Pakistan was admirable, it was a strategy doomed to failure because unless he could call every company in the market and get them to provide an accurate statement of their market share (which none will do), he would not get the information he needed to start.

He was also informed that relying on his 15 years of knowledge for something that changes from month to month and quarter to quarter was also an inappropriate way to do research.

3) When told his top 5 companies by market share were not acceptable, Amir then threatened to take this to the BBB (Better Business Bureau), Square trade and publish false statements on every internet newsgroup if his poor rating were not removed. He was warned that giving into these kinds of threats would introduce severe bias into the arbitration system. So we could not falsify the account. So he you can see from Google.

This situation (arbitration not being so just), because of the great value of each buyer in comparison to coder's. Freelance site would rather lost 10 coders than 1 buyer, so this HAS to lead to not being fair when it comes to decide who's right.
