Nationwide — Meet Tamera Preacher, the founder and CEO of LyingClient.com, a website she envisioned after having three consecutive bad experiences with difficult customers. On one occasion, her general contracting company, one of very few owned by a Black woman, had been falsely reported to the BBB, and this motivated her to create a platform that would expose dishonest and Karen-like customers. Ultimately, it would be a website that would allow business owners and entrepreneurs to report problematic customers and share their experiences.
It wasn’t easy, however, for Tamera to create the platform. She does not have a technical background, she is a military veteran, and she earned her master’s degree in Human Resources – all factors that have nothing to do with website development. But she was determined to get it done regardless.
She sought out an attorney to learn the laws about recording and displaying customers’ information. Then she began the process of finding the right website developer but initially, no one seemed to have the same passion and standards to develop the perfect website. It needed to be user-friendly, have a social media platform adjoining, and most importantly, be accessible to busy people really easily. Most individuals who work for themselves don’t have a lot of time to write about or even research a customer’s information.
Eventually, though, she found the right developer, and the site was officially launched shortly after. Now in year two, she has grown a substantial social media following and gained attention from several business owners active in their careers. Her website has even now ranked #1 on Reddit.com as the best platform to report “Karen” customers.
Here are some of the website’s features:
Real-time Scam Alerts: Stay informed and avoid falling victim to scams by accessing real-time alerts about fraudulent customer activities.
Directory of Terrible Customer Experiences: Make informed decisions with a comprehensive directory of negative customer experiences.
Advertising for Your Business: Showcase your services to a targeted audience of like-minded professionals on the platform.
Legal Aid Page: Provide legal resources for starting a business, maintaining a business, and legally securing your business.
Tips against Hackers: Safeguard your data and online presence with best practices.
Tips for Cybersecurity: Enhance your cybersecurity knowledge to protect sensitive information effectively.
Like most things, when it gains notoriety not everyone will understand the purpose. Recently she was racially attacked and cyberbullied for her firm stance on exposing Karen customers. The platform’s significance has been acknowledged by its ranking as #1 on Reddit for its innovative approach to addressing the issue of “Karen” customers—individuals displaying unreasonable demands. After much litigation though, the website is still here and ready to provide services to the general public. For more details and/or to sign up for membership, visit LyingClient.com
