Carlsbad Man Creates PR Nightmare

by The Editors on December 29, 2011

ChristoforoCarlsbad’s self-proclaimed social media marketing and SEO expert Paul Christoforo has proved one thing for certain–he knows how to make a name for himself and his Carlsbadistan based company Ocean Marketing using social media. Unfortunately, it is for all the wrong reasons, according to a story titled Ocean Marketing Disaster in the International Business Times.

Christoforo, who was handling customer service for a company called N-Control replied to a customer who was complaining about not getting his video game controller with the following email:

“Really … Welcome to the Internet ? Son Im 38 I wwebsite as on the internet when you were a sperm in your daddys balls and before it was the internet, thanks for the welcome to message wurd up,” Christoforo said. “Grow up you look like a complete child bro. I Don’t have my controller so I’m gonna cry to the world … Really ?? Hey take that free time and do something more productive. All you had to do was check the like everyone else , people have inquired but you’re the douchiest of them all J.”

When the customer posted his email exchange to Reddit things really began to snowball for Chrisoforo, resulting in more international media coverage than anyone in Carlsbad has gotten in a while, all for being reprehensible to customers.

There is much more to the story, but in the end Chrisoforo was apologizing to anyone and everyone for the way he’d handled things and he lost the N-Control account.
