After doing extensive research (for almost a year) I found this company for my ex-employer who needed programming for 3 websites. At that time I didn’t find any negative reviews of Agriya (Agriya.com) on the internet and I told her that Agriya was a perfect fit for what we needed. I was thrilled that after months of searching; I was able to find a company that was (in my opinion) perfect for the business. I was so excited that she was going to be able to grow the business and I would be responsible for helping to make it happen. She was so excited that she offered me a piece of the company (once it started making money). I got my ex-employer in contact with them and she began communicating with Arivand Kumar at Agriya. We made plans for (and she spent advertising money on) the launching of the company. I was convinced that I not only had a job but a I also had a career for life. She communicated with Arivand Kumar at Agriya for over 3 months before she hired them. She was very specific on what she wanted and Arivand told her she would have all 3 sites finished (and up) in 40 days. Arivand also told her that she needed to pay half ($3100) in advance of them starting the work on the websites. She sent them and invoice complete with an extremely detailed purchase order which she sent to them along with the $3100 via Paypal (thinking she was protected). For the next 2 months Arivand kept her “On The Hook” which (unknowingly to her) was long enough for the Paypal protection to expire. After Agriya received the money; Arivand continued to come up with excuses (such as the staff was on Holiday, etc…) as to why the work was not done. After that all communication STOPPED and she was no longer able to get in touch with him. She called India numerous times and they always said that Arivand was not in. They said he would get back to her (he never did). She left tons of messages for him to no avail. These websites were to be the anchor of her business and were essential for the business income 9and for my salary and eventual profits). The $3100.00 was the last investment money she had available and consequently, she had to let me go. It has been over 4 YEARS of her spending tons of money and time calling and emailing Agriya in India. Recently, (and out of desperation) she began researching complaint sites. She filed here at Ripoffreport.com and many others. It was only then that Arivand decided to contact her. She contacted me today and told me that she finally was able to get a refund of the $3100.00. She also demanded they pay interest and the Paypal fees. Agriya refused to pay any interest or the Paypal fees which were over $120.00! So in the end she still lost not only the business and the revenue it would have generated. She also lost the 4 years of interest and the Paypal fees! Not to mention, she lost me as an employee and I lost a lucrative job with incredible earning potential!!! AGRIYA, ARIVAND and ASHAN TECHNOLOGIES SUCK!!!!! NEVER deal with these THIEVES! They will RIP YOU OFF! Her story (and several others) are also on this site! The programming, software and web development company Agriya (agriya.com) is owned by Ahsan Technologies (ahsan.in). They own tons of sites, they clone, develop and sell numerous website programs as well. Arivand Kumar is a shill for AGRIYA, AGRIYA,COM and ASHAN TECHNOLOGIES! He claims not to be the owner but he is the only project contact you will have (unless he uses and AKA)! By the way (after over 4 years of keeping her money, not paying interest or the Paypal fees) they actually had the nerve to ask me ex-employer to remove all negative comments (she posted) about them (and Arivand) on the internet as a condition of their “Refund’! They are Absolute CROOKS!
