BTW, Karin, it was a hypothetical question as I haven\'t had any problemes so far.



And yes, I know how to read a contract BTW...after Law School you bet ! (I also know modesty and how not to tell people they don\'t understand a contract ))



FYI: not only I was trying to gather info...but regarding damaging the reputation of people who exploit you and don\'t pay you: a majority of translators opt for this option (i haven\'t done it yet, but might start there when a company or individual thinks they can exploit me and make profits on me....sorry!)

Hypothetical situation Oct 29, 2001

The text you wrote is what many people give as an example of a true situation. Your comments in parentheses made me think it was an actual situation, especially \"since I delivered the work\" and \"the agency *is* playing dead\". Given my experience in this area and the number of similarly worded messages I have seen, it was an honest mistake. After all, you did not say it was a hypothetical situation.



Regards,

Karin



If cross borders are involved, how does it work? For eg., a delinquent agency located in the UK, and I am in the US (a contract was formed and signed and is governed by the laws of the State of california)???

(since I delivered the work, no responses and no signs of life...basically the agency/individual is playing dead, and ignoring all mails).
