Meet Tamera Preacher, CEO of LyingClient.com, an idea she had after three unpleasant interactions with demanding clients. The fact that her general contracting firm had been unjustly reported to the BBB prompted her to start a website that shames dishonest and Karen-like clients. Ultimately, it would provide a platform for company owners to voice their opinions about troublesome clients and report them.
However, developing the platform was not a breeze for Tamera. She has no experience in the field, is a veteran, and has a master’s degree in human resources, none of which pertains to website creation. But she was bound and determined to do the task.
She went to a lawyer to find out what regulations applied to keeping and disclosing client records. Then she started looking for a good website developer, but at first, nobody appeared to share her enthusiasm for the project or her high expectations for the finished product.
It has to be convenient for busy individuals, have an integrated social media component, and be simple to navigate. Self-employed people often lack time to write about or investigate client information.
But she did find the proper developer in the end, and the site went up shortly after. Over the last year, she has amassed a sizable online following and caught the eye of several successful businesspeople. Her website is currently the most recommended place for “Karen” consumers to report problems on Reddit.com.
When it becomes popular, not everyone will comprehend its point. Recent racist attacks and cyberbullying stem from her unwavering refusal to back down from her policy of publicly shaming Karen’s clients.
Reddit’s top spot is a testament to the platform’s importance; it was created to help businesses deal with “Karen” customers, or those who make unreasonable demands. Despite the lengthy legal battle, the website is still ready to serve the public.
