How to make a (illegal?) buck

I was trying to check my account on an well-known global website specialised in freelance software developement. (Un)fortunately, when I wrote the address in Firefox, I wrote .ro instead of .com. Surprise! The domain is registered by a Ploieşti, România-based company, is active and it offers pretty much the same services as its US counterpart.

After my unfortunate experience with Piatadesoft.ro, I became extremely careful with Romanian software sites, so the first thing I did was to check for the owner’s data. All I could find was a contact form, but no offline contact method. There are no projects on that website just yet, and my sincere hope is that there will never by any. If you read this, I strongly advise you NOT to use their services if they ever become active.

    deci doar pentru ca ai avut o experinta nefericita cu ALT site si pentru ca nu ai gasit nici o adresa de contact, ii sfatuiesti pe toti sa ocoleasca site-ul? genial…

    Da, pentru ca INCREDEREA si RENUMELE sunt doua chestii esentiale in afacerile astea. Tipii astia vor sa-si construiasca un nume pe spatele un sit care a bagat multe resurse pentru a realiza un loc sigur atat pentru cumparatori, cat si pentru vanzatori. In plus, eu nu am incredere in oamenii pe care nu stiu de unde sa-i iau in caz de probleme. Asa ca sfatul meu este: STATI DEPARTE de asemenea situri!
