Searchable threads in one long post:

RCL paid Lee Fogarty £14000 for £2600 of work

Lee Fogarty has repeatedly stated that he was not paid by David Levy and Suzanne Martin for anything other than creating and hosting their websites. Lee has also admitted publicly that RCL still owe him hundreds of pounds for website creation and hosting. After the bank statements began leaking, Lee finally realised his lies would be exposed and he finally admitted that RCL did pay him £14,000. The bank statements have backed this up.

The company Creative Spectrum Ltd is several years behind submitting accounts and was due to be struck off, but Companies House has confirmed that a third party has objected to the dissolution. Director of Creative Spectrum Lee Fogarty was previously exposed accepting a cash job for the famous John Wayne Cowboy Builders website debacle.

After the earlier leak, we have now been sent the original quote from Lee Fogarty's company 'Creative Spectrum Ltd' showing that he was quoting a total of £2,000 for website creation and £600 for a full year of hosting and support.

So what exactly was Lee Fogarty paid £14,000 for? Perhaps Lee was paid for some of the following above and beyond his web development skills:
