    A rip of ClientExec

    http://www.flexclient.com

    Very sad.

    CE said they are taking appropriate action, but I still want to warn anyone NOT to use this.

    ripoff is an understatement. I have no idea what this is.
    I only know that the person behind this is a kiddie.

    Must be, because no self-respecting adult would even consider such nonsense.

    *Note* I DID say self-respecting, because there are some pretty shady "adults" around these parts as well.

    Lol, its seems to be a complete copy. Looks like other billing managers should be warned too.

    lol. Yes, they are a bunch of odd people. Copying everything from the site, software to the price & forums too.

    Find ' ClientExec' replace with 'FlexClient'

    I'm sure CE will deal with this.

  16. #16
    Maybe ClientExec copied FlexClient?

    the site can be taken off easily by just sending a Wordy email to their data center as it is clearly in breach of copyright.

    Well they did a good job of hiding the coding aspects of it. (The URL Queries are much different), but other than that it looks like they just through a different theme over it and decided to sell it.

    Well, it's very poorly designed as well.

    It looks like they spent a lot of time modifying, I mean, making that script.

    Who wants to bet that they paid 200 dollars for an old decoded copy of ClientExec that some kid downloaded off the internet? Regardless, it's still wrong.

  24. There is no such thing I believe.
    That is why he said he wanted a clone of CE.

    I beg to differ, there is such a thing. However, it would be morally wrong for me to tell you how to find it. Being a developer yourself, I know you can appreciate that. Just take my word for it. Regardless, I'm betting that's what the person who bid 200 dollars, and got the job sold them.

    At this point (if I'm correct), I don't know if the person who is actually trying to sell it is aware that it's a rip, but I wouldn't rule it out.

    I'd really like for someone from CE to get to the bottom of it, so I'd know if I was correct or not, but that's what my money is on.

    They should have cared to change the name a bit atleast.

    Clientexec = FlexClient

    That annoying sound/music in the flash is just awful. I sure hope CE takes action against them.
