Geeks on Steroids biggest scammers operating out of Columbia , South America. They use local city phone # in all major cities. Then Greg sweet talks you into they will deliver a great website, then charges your funds thru PayPal. Then using all sort of lame excuses, drag their feet until over the 45 days dispute limit intentionally knowing the law. Then pocket the money and boom , no calls, no e mails no website and fat happy with the 50% deposit taken upfront. If you have been scammed thru PAYPAL , e mail because they await more complaints before they can act to these GEEKS. Let's get together !!

Paypal does not process payments for geeks-on-steroids anymore...Their payments are now through "Julian Cadena" apparently a family member (see above posts)

If you do nothing else this year, try and contribute to stomping out these scammers.

They also have someone calling himself Eddie Hernandez working the gig.


GeeksonSteroids scapes content from other designer's sites to hijack SEO to their own site. I found this out Googling my company name. What can we do to stop these kinds of practices?


I have also been ripped off but not in the way you have. I live in his area and I know these people. This is how they work:

The guy who runs the business is Greg, he built his own reputation with Janeth's name saying that she was a young woman married and running herself a Website Design Company. This is the first lie!! Janeth exists but she doesn't even know how to type a word in English, she is a Colombian woman and she only takes care of the two kids they have.

Greg not only rips off his clients, he also rips off his employees, I was one of them, that's why I can tell the story. He hires people promising the best things, saying that Geeks on Steroids is the best Web Design Company in the world, blah blah blah.

***!! What you say is true, he requests 50% in advance to start a project, then he asks his designer ( he only has one normally) to create a mockup and that's what he sends to the client, he doesn't even care for showing an advance on it. I say it because that's how we used to work there. I felt really bad knowing the people that we were creating some work for were being ripped off. I know this is not the only case, there are thousands of people like you guys. He was even banned by paypal, now he receives payments through another person (someone of his family).

I worked there for 3 months and they never paid me, they offered me to pay with an outdated computer, that's what they offer to everybody, I didn't accept this. He has ripped off many people here too. People in this area know him and don't work for him, only the young kids who are just going out of the university.



I personally know Gregg, I live in Colombia (Used to work for that ***), and I'm a graphic and web designer, and it's very frustrating to find posts like this online because he's ruining our reputation and creating a bad image about the work we do here.

 I've been a web designer for about 4 years, and I know i'm good and responsible, never never a scammer. It's hard enough for us to fight with people like you everyday so you can understand it is COLOMBIA not Columbia, that we are not monkeys or indians and that we produce and eat more than bananas and cocaine, and now this...

This guy really is a scammer but what's so funny about this story is that he's not even Colombian, he's a *** u.s redneck, borne and raised in georgia, who had to come to Colombia hiding form the law. He now has a beautiful wife and house that he "pays" for with the hard work of real Colombian workers, college graduated and great designers and programmers, (if you get a lame design is because their employees are forced to do what he wants them to do) and like it was not enough, nobody wants to work with colombian designers anymore because of him... I feel really angry and sad, but I guess there's nothing I can do, just keep doing a good job and hope someday people like him stop destroying what costs us so much to get. 



I spoke with Gregg today, he quoted me over the phone within a 5 minute conversation $1,800 to redesign my site, wants 50% down, that sounded fishy, hence I found this site and others. The dude has a southern accent, so I was really surprised to hear they are running their operation through Columbia. I will take these warnings seriously.

Funny thing is that he ranked high in search, the first page with Google, search 'Web Site Design' and see what you get, not good news for Google. I am now seriously thinking Google is out of the picture for me.

One Less Customer...

New Reviewer Never deliver websites

Run from these ripoff artists! My business partner recommended we try them based on their portfolio. We received a quote for a $500 custom website in 7 days covered by 110% satisfaction guarantee. I foolishly believed they'd stand behind their product. Wrong, wrong, wrong. After more than a week with no action, I finally called their so-called customer service. The guy Gregg was the rudest person I've ever talked to who was not a NY Times telemarketer. We finally agreed to let them deliver a preliminary site. The next day I received a kindergartenish attempt. Told them it was entirely unsatisfactory. They delivered a simply amaterish attempt. Over the course of the next few days, they would slowly add a widget, etc. Absolutely horrible work and nothing I would send a customer to see. Finally I asked for a refund. After that, no more communication! Run, run, run from GeeksonSteroids! Unless you just like to give money to crooks.
