2694 0 0 They owe me over 1700.00 USD for over 2 years with no intention to pay. Their current name is SRF Global. They have a web site appropriately named www.ethicscrisis.com. Owners are Reuben Friedman and Sloan Friedman. The Project Managers (one is named Kaiyu) are well aware of the non-payment by the company owners but go along with the fraud. I was in contact with a number of translators who were either partially paid or not paid at all. 5/5/2012
2047 0 Unspecified/don't recall, but in the begining Payment was usually received within 60 days. - In Spring 2004, Payment began to slow down significantly, 3.5 months after the job in one case. At present, the oldest unpaid invoice is 3 months old and counting. Payment received: YES, almost always (An average job was between $100 - $200 ). (Will work for again: IF they get their Payment situation under control and keep it under control, yes. ) [Mod. note: Standard US terms of net 30 assumed for rating purposes] Like another member mentioned in his review, this is an agency that otherwise has treated me great, but had a sudden and severe change in it's Payment practices earlier this year.
