Does anybody here remember Jared, once Co-Owner of NarutoFAN.com?
He was a PHP coder who loved anime, and worked on his own sites mostly, until he met Tazmo. Tazmo had already started NarutoFAN on his own, and offered Jared a chance to be a co-owner in the site, if he would code a few nice little things for him.
Remember when NarutoFAN first got its messaging system? I was one of the first ones to get a message from Jared who is a good friend of mine, and he was really happy with it. This is the same messaging system and login script that NarutoFAN uses today. Then Tazmo asked Jared to do something different all together. Take this simple login/PM script, and intertwine it with a download manager. The end goal being NarutoFAN PLUS!
Jared agreed to do it when Tazmo showed him the figures, and they both opened a paypal account together. Jared put about 500 man hours into creating everything for NarutoFAN plus, which he did the scripting for all by himself. After it was all setup, around Christmas 2004 I believe, the results were pheonomenal. They made about $1000 in the first month alone. This must have been a sweet deal for Tazmo, he did not a thing. Just waited for all of the coding.
The original deal was for them to split the money 50/50, but sometime in late January I'm sure you can all guess what this fucking scumbag Tazmo did. Just went ahead and CHANGED THE PASSWORD on the Paypal account which was under HIS creditcard, along with changing all of the Admin, FTP and MySQL logins. He just goes ahead and takes it all for himself.
If any ADMIN wants proof of this to make it a sticky thread, my AIM is China Man NWP and my MSN is electric_Jester9@hotmail.com. Hit me up with a PM on the forums and then message me on one of the two messaging programs, and I'll give you my login to my NarutoFAN PLUS! Account, that has a few interesting aspects to it that will show you that I definitely knew the guy who created it.
As for Jared, I don't talk to him often, since he's never on AIM much anymore. Now that I am about 90% done this post I now realize most people knew Jared created the script, but I don't think he ever told anybody how Tazmo ripped him off of money that definitely shouldv'e been his. Why, I don't know, but it's fucked up.
Anyway, good site, tazmo is a faggot, glhf.
