The Complaint

What happened

Claimant's opinion: Filed a fraudulent complaint with their credit card company and reversed the charges for doing the search engine optimization work for his company. This company had thousands of backlinks built for them. Onpage SEO was done for more than 100 pages on the website. More than 20 high end articles written (artist biographies). More than 50 high end videos. A website built as well. The owners name is Kenny Ackerman.

Two other complaints:

Claimant's opinion: Did not pay for the services that were rendered for this company.


Nov 12, 2012, Claiming party added:

Here is the simple 5 page website that was built per the instructions of this company:

To your statement of no Onpage SEO being done- do you even know what the Onpage SEO factors are?

To your claim of shady SEO practices let this be known to anyone who reads this:
He was told upfront no guarantee's (I can not control Google). He expected to be #1 on Google for artists like "Pablo Picasso" in less than 60 days for less than $40. Impossible.

Am I the only one that see's his website? In some of the results you can also see the artist video's ranking in the top ten too.

This is the custom YouTube channel that was created for this company and all the videos contained in it were created by our video specialist (for $5 a piece mind you):

Let anyone who reads this look at the information and videos and tell me it is substandard.

I have documentation that I will be making public real soon. This is your last chance .

Ackermans Fine Art's Response

Ackermans Fine Art to Claimant 

Claim is declined by Ackermans Fine Art for the following reason:

  • I disagree with the explanation / grounds provided

    The work done by Mr. Burk's was unacceptable because of extremely poor quality; was never completed; and was detrimental to my business. This is a fact not an opinion, which I received from a reputable SEO company. Mr. Burk's charges unsuspecting individuals excessive amounts of money for extremely sub-par SEO services that do nothing to help their businesses. In addition, his underhandedness is clearly evident in the fact that he had me pay him directly and not through the pairing company ( that I found him through, thus robbing them of their commission.
