"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 (ODESK.com) that I found him through, thus robbing them of their commission.

In this situation, the parties should sit down with a mediator or other third party neutral to discuss the terms of the contract and whether there was a material breach of the terms of the contract in regards to the services offered or whether there was performance of the contract. Because of the high level of technical knowledge associated with this particular contract, involving a third party neutral with a background in this particular area of expertise would be beneficial to both parties involved, as both parties are alleging that the contract was breached.
