This company demanded a full payment of 20k for a so called Premium Web Design even before soft launch. Copy writing and marketing are included in the package however the website did not work due to wrong business model. The agreement is one sided-my friend needed to pay RM300 monthly for maintenance cost.
Could you clarify on what does it mean by "does not work due to wrong business model"?

The figure is irrelevant -- 5k, 20k, 100k, 1 million. What matters is did the design firm deliver what was promised?

If not, what did the firm fail to deliver?

My friend waited for almost a year for this website to 'function' but the result is very poor.
What specific "functions" did the web design firm promised but not delivered?

The website expires after a year and they did not even give her the copy of the content.
If the website is published, I don't think it's common practice to give out a copy like in PDF file or Doc file. Unless you mean that the web design company prevents from you exporting the content.

When my friend did the digging before she made a police report, she found out that this company is not even a company in the first place. It is merely an enterprise (business)!
Irrelevant.

And the website is not so canggih-they use Wordpress only!
Also irrelevant. Unless the design firm promised specifically everything will be built from scratch, using Wordpress is probably a PLUS for users because of its strong community.

In contrast, our premium website works by ensuring the client is not only positioned correctly as an expert in her industry but also to ensure the website is found organically when people do a search related to the client's industry.
I think this is a crucial point. Did you guarantee organic traffic to the person's website? If yes, did the website get any?

And by the way, we told her she could copy out all the website content and keep it.
Does the client have access to the Wordpress dashboard? Can they export out everything with a plugin?
What about the domain name? Who owns it? Should a client decide to not stay on with your firm, what happens to it?
