We have like one of that kind a week:
A very recently joined member leaving his first message in the recruiting forum stating he's representing a startup company aiming for the best quality available on the market.
To be clear: That's not how it works. Not in this place.
1. Give us some details what project is worked on and how far did you get to this point. Maybe show some pictures.
2. Who are you guys? what's your level of experience?
3. What is your role in the whole thing? And please don't say something like "HR Manager" or "PR Manager".
Is usually a youth, playing the role of a Human Resources Director, whose enthusiasm gets confused for some sort of slick talk and I suggest, cut the kid some slack. Let the people who might actually get sucked up into the scam do their own policing, in the interest of building bridges instead of walls.
The same AWG Simulations that once hired me to do Brussels for Aerosoft, only for me to later find out he was a 13 year old kid. Illegal. I never did get my 9000 euro for all the work I done either.
Honestly, AWG, if you can contact me then please do so but be fore-warned I will never be joining you on a project ever again and I would advise everyone else to avoid like a plague as well.
I'll be keeping my eye on you.
Yes, I was the person who was originally developing it, it was near release stage (in beta). Then I discovered the true age of AWG, otherwise known as Aaron William Graham so I seized work on Brussels. Other team took it upon themself to create.
Don't be confused, that was the original release of Brussels, the Brussels I was developing was meant to be an entire new update/airport. 9000 euro was my final payment which I didn't get a fraction of.
To be honest, it irritates me A LOT knowing he is back in the community and still has no intention to do any work himself except rely on desperate people.
Everyone take mine and Shaun's advice and steer clear. I wouldn't normally publicly rat people out like this but it's operations like AWG is trying to run that I think is destroying the community for developers. These sort of companies don't give credits to original developers and instead take full credit for them self. They will even go as far as reviewing their own products giving them glistening reviews.
This thread is about recruitment. I’ve made some fantastic friends and business relations around the globe and it is all thanks to Arno and the rest of the owners that put this site together. I’ve has some scandalous relations, go figure.
With permission from some of my more reputable associates, I name drop, when I think it is professionally appropriate. I will never, ever recount the situations where we, unfortunately, had a misunderstanding, or a bad turn of circumstances about which we disagreed the resolution - and this does not even address the legal aspects of making potentially damaging declarations in a public forum.
This thread is not a review, or request for comment. I mean, thanks for the Google search, you typed “awg” and pressed return right? Maybe if we want to comment about awg we should start our own thread.
Sorry, Rick, but I am not the sort of person to let a dodgey team that had already committed fraud return to the community with the same old tactics. At the end of the day, many talented people wasted hours working for this company in the past and some of us, including myself got ripped off massively for it. This was no misunderstanding or disagreement, AWG lied about their age among many other things that make business for him illegal and offers me ZERO security because of it, it's that simple.
You must be a lawyer or something because it's not the first time I've seen you spout about "legal aspects" when defending someone, you seem more bothered about what I am saying in general other than the actual points I am making. Do yourself a favour mate and stop pretending to be a lawyer in almost every thread you visit or create. If someone that does commit fraud and forgery is something you see no problem with, then why don't you go ahead and apply for the role, we would all love to hear from you in 6 months how things are going.
Plus, I wouldn't name drop if AWG didn't literally stand for Aaron William Graham!
Darren, you have pretty much defined what sort of person you are. You've hijacked this thread, promoted your personal agenda in a public forum and have made unsubstantiated allegations against what is apparently a former partner - and you have made statements to me in private about comments directed your way by a VERY prominent developer that has become crystal clear in its meaning. You do this to prosecute a crime, not against humanity, but against YOU and I think people begin to wonder just who the heck you think you are.
You need to stop right now. The matter of Andrew William Graham's activities, what hew allegedly did or did not do - to you - is meaningless at this point. I for one will never work with you professionally and I am quite certain that anyone reading this thread will also refuse. If anything goes wrong, if I tell a joke about your autistic dog you don't like, I will be reading about my transgressions all over the pages of my favorite website and dude, I'm not into that. You will cease to hurl insults my way because we will cease to be associated. Probably won't do business with AWG either, just to be safe, but since I haven't seen him say shiz about anyone whatsoever and know I can pretty much take care of myself with scammers, I feel safer talking to him.
I don't know where you come from, Slobovia maybe. In my country, we have what we call "the rule of law." One of those rules, I think even Slobovians recognize, is the presumption of innocence, or more popularly, innocent until proven guilty. Another, more subtle rule is that evidence of previous crimes may not be used to prove one. To most people, this sounds stupid. He's a bank robber, the prosecutor should be allowed to tell the jury he has a history, right? Maybe in Slobovia. Here, we're pretty high on ourselves. We think we have a pretty crackin justice system and that it actually is correctional. In that environment, the presumption of innocence extends to the reformed criminal, he is not shackled with the shadow of his past mistakes. It does not seem like you would be willing to live in my country and conform to its laws and rules.
You, Darren Seare of Aviasim, need begin the process that demonstrates you have reformed.
What the "heck" makes you think I'm trying to be someone I'm not?
You think it is wrong for me to out a company that uses bad practice, you have clearly not seen "Rogue Traders" TV programme or those Yelp pages where numerous, large companies receive reviews.
You say all this jargon and go ahead and put numerous labels on me - I got scammed by the person, I'm not the only one who did, but I'm the only one who will not be frightened to advise anyone else that, FOR THEIR OWN SAKE - stay away.
When did YOU hear about AWG? if you have only just heard of them then forget even arguing with me - the difference between myself and AWG is that I know how to look after the people that want to work with me and I do things by the book. I'm not here to rip people off, but to you it seems such a bad thing that I'm trying to look out for honest, genuine developers who have a real talent.
FYI I am from the UK, the process that demonstrates my reformation is the simple fact I am working alone on numerous products, instead of trying to hire out a hand full of people to do it all for me.
If you have a real argument against me then send me a private message. You have literally just chose to argue with me over this and I think you are rude and pathetic.
