2866 0 not rating 9 2 This company kept me full up with work in November and December of 2016, and again in Jan. and Feb. of 2017. I enjoyed interactions with the staff who gave me work. I read elsewhere here that the average wait for payment was 30 days; however now they have extended that to 60 days. At 60 days after my invoice for November, I asked for a payment date, and was paid fairly promptly, but the amount was small because it only included a week''s work. At 60 days after the December invoice I had heard nothing and received no payment for it (about $1100 worth of work). After sending 2 emails I got back a poorly worded response that they were going through a "budget payment process" and would let me know the details. Not "soon," just "let you know." A few days later I began sending them daily e-mails, all of which were unanswered. Then I began informing their employees who had given me work, and finally they sent me another email saying exactly the same thing. I fear they won''t pay. Today I''m going to search them out at their Bangkok office and confront them about this. Some of the work I have invoiced them for is nearly 4 months old now. No one has ever complained about the quality of my work, and I have always turned it in before deadline. Ongoing story. 2017-03-09
