Raj, Founder of Omsoftware, with his website running https://www.omsoftware.net/ https://www.omsoftware.com.sg.
I knew him through contacts in Singapore, he travels frequently to Singapore even has a singapore number.
Everything starts when we paid air ticket for Raj to meet us in Thailand dated back in 26/04/2017. We paid for his entertainment in Bangkok, and to Pattaya. We had a great insight of his team and how the application can be done. Raj also shown us the projects that he did, he promises us that he has the experience to finish up this chat app within 2017 with his talented team members in his company. Everything feels promising after days of discussion in Thailand.The contract is based on 90 days, with 5 payments milestone to finish up on both iOS and Android.
10k USD in total.

Total 100% 90 Days $10,000.00
We made the first payment of the 12th may 2017, is a upfront payment to start the development, and then everything seems fine with the development of the project as we could see the process given by his team members.Until after the 3rd payment we made, that's where the problem comes.
I'm surprised that their team members, who are handling the project, left the company due to not getting their salary. Raj didn’t pay their employee, as a result? Project delayed. So Raj delayed our project and build slowly with 1 updates per month, and keep asking for the next payment. And the reason is to pay for his employee to continue the project.
Today is 28 October 2018, which he blames us for not paying the next payment. He only continue the project until he received the next payment.
Just for the information, he keep insist that we are delaying the payment. Look at the Milestone above:
4th payment is completion of the project
Every month we asked how is the project, he said doing very well will able to complete in 2 to 3 weeks.
and he asked for payment. Yet he insisted us to pay even he has delayed for 1 year and the current project has reached around 60%. He blame us for holding the payment and therefore couldn't pay for his company, his entire team who handling the project left the company way keeping us in the dark. Trust has been destroy, false promises given too many times
Date started 12th May 2017
To Date 28th October 2018
Total time spent on development:
Result: 534 days/76 weeks & 2 days
From a 90days project and become 534days projects and reaches around 60% malfunctioning application.

Dear John , Thanks for posting your review here but What ever the fact you have put here is all shows that you were not happy with the progress of work but you have not put the fact that during the development of the project you have taken 3-4 month in the approval of the design. After We completed most of the feature as per the Scope of the work , you started forcing us to work without payment and after numerous request of the 4th milestone payment which was due on completion of the 4th Milestone you refused constantly to pay and force to complete the project and you wanted to pay all in cash at hand which is totally unacceptable for a company like us. we strongly recommend you to contact us and solve this issue amicably. We have deliver your project and now you want the source and money from us by doing all this.
We Are still in position to talk and finish this amicably , Stop threatening and Blackmailing.
