This was the day that would be the beginning of our two month long nightmare dealing with Adodis Technologies. After evaluating quotes from different vendors, we decided to go with Adodis since they seemed to be professional, enthusiastic, and their cost seemed to be reasonable.
We were instructed to pay 50% of the cost upfront and 50% after completion of work. The payment website we were given was adodis.com/payment/2checkout/2checkout.html.
As you can see from the screenshot above, the site looked very basic and did not use an SSL connection, but the disclaimer on the site says not to worry and that the credit card information will be requested on the following page which will be secure. This should have been another red flag for us, but we made the initial deposit of $1000 USD, a move that we would surely regret a few months later.
