Mr.Jonathan Webb Deiss of \"Soldier Source\", \"Citizen Archivist\" decided after a very raging and rude email to me that he would refund $50.00 into my Paypal account.
I filed a complaint with the Washington D.C. Better Business Bureau of his decision to keep my money after not doing any research that I had requested and paid for in May 2011. Mr.
Deiss has not responded to any of my emails requesting that he refund the entire amount after he stated that I was indeed entitled to a refund due to a lack of service.Now waiting for a response from the BBB.

Mr.Jonathan Webb Deiss was hired on May 31, 2011 to complete 3 hours of research for documents pertaining to Family research for my application into the (SAR), Sons of the American Revolution.
For 6 months Mr. Jonathan Webb Deiss refused to communicate with me via email for updates on his progress. Mr. Jonathan Webb Deiss lives in Virginia with the understanding he had and would research the National Archives and Maryland Archives for Hardesty Family documentation.
He, Mr. Deiss, finally wrote me a few months back stating that I indeed deserved a full refund for non-service. As of November 22, 2011 Mr. Jonathan Webb Deiss has only refunded $50.00 of my $150.00 fee via Paypal.
He is now stating he has been ill for quite some time and he's experiencing problems with the IRS. At the time I hired Mr. Jonathan Webb Deiss he has been supposedly ill and in dire needs with the IRS. This was never stated when hired.
He accepted my money under false pretenses.
No research, no paperwork and no full refund for theft.(Soldier Source), (Jonathan Webb Deiss, Independent Researcher & Military History Specialist), (http://www.citizenarchivist.net/), (http://cwmemory.com/2011/01/14/so-you-want-to-be-
