I saw your post and pressed the little + sign and saw a whole bunch of
responses.

I'm responding before I read any other postings so as not to be
influenced by peer pressure.

I can only speak from 25+ years of being a business person first, and
consulting as my trade.
BTW, a happy customer is always good business.

I have witnessed the equivalent of used car salespersons in this trade,
but they don't last long in the same town.  They get run out of town
real quick.  Those that last, have done some good.

From your post I perceive that you got burned by one of the crooks in
this, and any other, profession.

Now, with all due respect, I'm going to throw the ball back into your
court and ask whether you bothered to check references.  Or did that
smoke going up your --- feel so good that you bought the story hook,
line, and sinker?

Buyer beware.
