1006 200 0 Net 30 days - Yes Payment received: only one invoice paid on time, after that time, all the invoices were paid late and after many many email and phone reminders. One invoice is at today still unpaid (due Dec.2003) in spite of two certified letters from my lawyer. (Around $100, I think). (Will work for again: Yes) 7/5/2011

1002 100 0 30 days - On time Payment received: almost 2 months late (A few hundred GBP). (Will work for again: Certainly. Mr Miller seems very professional. ) This agency is currently introducing new terms of business and I am negotiating with them about some of the detail. I expect that the remaining issues will be resolved satisfactorily. 3/30/2006
1001 60 2 90 days - usually takes longer than 120 days Payment received: About 10 days late but maybe due to posting cheque to France. Or it takes a long time to put the stamp on the envelope maybe. (Over US$19,000). (Will work for again: ) At the end of May 2004, the invoices issued November 2003 onward had not been paid and the total outstanding amount was accumulated to over US$9,400. I asked Charlie Humphrey several times to pay the delayed Payment but all I got was just another excuses. On 1st July 2004, Charlie sent me an e-mail saying 'I know you are in the process of sending our account to collections, however in an effort to show you good faith and perhaps deter you from doing so I will be trying to send you a Payment for US$2,000.00 tomorrow.' Now it is 13th July and still I haven't received any Payment. This is not the first time when Charlie said 'check is in the mail' and nothing had arrived. Already I have contacted an debt collection agency in PA. I don't know when Charlie started working for Inlingua but it is definitely not from February 2004. To my request of Payment, Charlie had replied on 17th September 2003 as 'Operations Director & General Counsel' of Inlingua. 10/23/2009
1000 100 0 90 days - 90- 120 days. Payment received: Yes. On time like clockwork (Over US$900). (Will work for again: ) [Info above changed based on updated comments] In response to an inquiry for Global Arena, I replied about non-Payment for invoices around 120 days past due and warned against working with this agency, who previously worked under the name Inlingua, in PA. In the reply I mentioned that although Charlie Humphrey promised Payment by a certain day (early June, I believe), the day came and went and no Payment was issued. Charlie claimed they weren't able to meet Payment obligations due to Payment failure on part of their cliet(s). Since then they have issued two Payments totaling over $900, and they are caught up relative to their 90 day Payment terms. Charlie has been very open about letting me know when Payments are expected to be issued, how much, and confirming that checks are mailed (which they always have been--none of this check is in the mail business and then nothing arrives). One of the two checks issued to date was slightly less than they originally promised, but it seems they a 10/14/2009 0:00
999 90 0 90 days - 90- 120 days. Payment received: it was not late (Over US$900).

998 90 0 90 days - No Payment received: ca. 15 days late (Over US$19,000). (Will work for again: Only if they sort out the Payment issue. ) I worked with the agency quite regularly from Jan 2003 til May 2004. The Payment was always late. At the end of May 2004, the invoices issued November 2003 onward had not been paid and the total outstanding amount was accumulated to over US$9,400. I stopped working with the agency at the end of May and contacted a debt collection agency in US in June. The collection agency sent a demanding letter on 6th July 2004. On 7th July, Global Arena posted a check of US$2471.30. Since then, Global Arena has been making Payments once a month with the amount of about US$1000. However Global Arena has not made any Payment in December 2004, so at the time of writing this, which is 11th January 2005, the total amount of unpaid invoices remains US$3460.75. 10/18/2009
997 90 0 - No Payment received: About 10 days late (USD 200+). (Will work for again: Absolutely not.) I worked for inlingua (former name of Global Arena) on three occasions in February/March 2004, three small jobs, totalling about 200 USD. I had done previous sma 6/12/2005
996 60 0 90 days - No, Payments still not received. Payment received: Yes (see below) ($2,445.00 of which $1,777.50 is over 90 days past due.). (Will work for again: No.) I first started working for Global Arena when they were Inlingua, and they never paid on time. From Winter 200[3] through this summer, they would pay after I chased past due Payments. It seemed Charlie Humphrey, the finance manager I think, was making a good-faith effort to issue Payments. But now they are way past due again ($757.50 of the full total listed above is over 120 days past due), and I haven't had a reply to a message sent on 12/21/04. 10/20/2009
995 90 2 - No Payment received: On time (USD 200+). (Will work for again: Absolutely not.) As reported previously, they owed me a total of roughly 200 USD for three minor jobs, performed and billed for in the first quarter of 2004. Numerous reminders did not help 6/13/2005
994 0 2 They pay at 90 days previous agreement. - Yes, as agreed Payment received: sometimes (). (Will work for again: Of course I will. ) They used to have Payment problems I spoke with the manager, he told me to be patient and I am very thankful to them, they are paying on time now. I agreed to be paid 90 days after delivering the projects. They have changed FOR THE BETTER. 5/7/2012
993 300 2 90 days - No Payment received: Yes (Over US$19,000). (Will work for again: No) In my previous response regarding Global Arena/Inlingua, I wrote I had been working with the agency since Jan 2002, but it was my mistake. It was Jan 2003 At the end of May 2004, the invoices issued November 2003 onward had not been paid and the total outstanding amount was accumulated to over US$9,400. I have contacted the debt collection agency in US in June. They sent a demanding letter on 6th July 2004. On 7th July, Global Arena/Inlingua posted a check of US$2471.30. However one week later, Charlie Humphrey, Managing Director & General Counsel of Global Arena/Inlingua sent a letter to the debt collection agency claiming as follows, Our records indicate that Global Arena only owes your client $407.81 of which only $173.68 is 90 days overdue and will be paid this week. Please bear in mind that our standard Payment terms are 90 days from the day we receive the invoice. It seems to be that the outstanding invoices that your firm has been retained to collect on, are Leaven Un 10/19/2009
992 0 4 90 days - No Payment received: 1 inv. before due time, 3 inv. with delays ranging from 6 weeks to 10 days, 6 invoices are still outstanding. (Over US$19,000).

991 0 4 Initially 30 days after date of invoice (my terms), changed this year by the agency into 60 days after receipt of invoice (reluctantly accepted by me). - NO The 2003 invoices were paid in April 2004, the 2004 invoices have not yet been paid. Payment received: YES (331,55 US$). (Will work for again: That depends on what happens on August 27 (see comments). ) In their latest two answers (June and early August) to my inquiries they state to have cash flow problems, which in general I consider to be a management problem that should not affect suppliers. In their latest communication they apologize for the delay and further said: we are trying to give our contractors an idea of when Payments will be made, instead of just giving you a date that we know we will not be able to honor. Our Payments from our clients are starting to come in on a more frequent basis, so we are starting to improve on getting our Payments out quicker. At this time, it would be unfair to commit to a particular date in August, but please know that you are scheduled to be paid within the last two weeks of August. Please feel free to contact me via e-mail to confirm Payment on Friday August 27h. I have mixed feelings about this, but I have decided to wait and see. By the way, there is more about this agency in the 7/19/2010
990 30 10 90 days - Not yet due Payment received: no, not always on time. 3 weeks late ($45.00). (Will work for again: No, because of the 90 day terms, which I knew about of course, but accepted the little job anyway. ) Personally, I can get by w/o 30-day Payment but it's the principle of the thing, and of course I wouldn't want to do a large job and have to wait 90 days for a significant sum. 10/22/2009
989 0 0 - Never paid Payment received: YES (USD 150). (Will work for again: NO) 6/8/2005
