Martti Malmi Named in SC5.io HTML5 SCAM
Martti Malmi, after helping to develop the Bitcoin eCurrency in 2012, joined SC5 company owned by Pyry Lehdonvirta. His help was required for HTML5 markup language development. Everybody in IT sphere knows that now it is a core and very popular technology in the Internet. Of course it is currently under development due to the majority of information technology professionals that express a great interest to HTML5. For sure, there could be even more interested professionals, but the company reputation was disconsidered by some people who were team members of the companies involved in the HTML5 development. Martti Malmi was one of them.
In a latest Ripoff Report given by one of the HTML5 site developer based in Nebraska, Martti Malmi is considered to be a person, who cheated the user of more than 20000 Euros.
I got scammed for 22440 euros by SC5. My key contact and team lead was Martti Malmi and the job was to produce a commerce site in HTML5. So they asked for a deposit to start the work. Then I noticed, after the first update, the very poor quality of their work and I started expressing my deep concerns. Martti Malmi himself and other team members stopped answering my calls. I got strange email answers that seemed to be in Indian style English.
After 3 weeks I found the truth; my Project was being handled in Bangalore, India, by programmers making on average US$12/hour. ( I investigated and spoke with several firms about this) I was shocked and complained to Mr. Malmi, who said that the terms and conditions did not specify that SC5 could not outsource. This is a total misrepresentation of our contract and I feel absolutely betrayed. They say they will refund part of my money but not the part already spent. I can not believe this fraud. Next stop is the Finnish courts. There are many more scam alerts that pop up in search results for Martti Malmi reporting different scams, related to Bitcoin, eCurrency ATMs and web development.
We wanted to get in touch with the SC5 executive officers and Martti Malmi through SC5 and Bitcointalk.org, his own forum, in order to confirm the statement by Guy Maxwell given above, but our emails and phone calls had no answers.
