Check the BlueBoard before accepting any assignments.

There is a large agency (based in California) seeking translators for a large project. They owe A LOT of people A LOT of money (including one translator who is owed $14,000 and another $10,000). They have been banned from posting on Proz.

Thank you Feb 4, 2015

Thanks Jeff for letting us know. If site rules allow, can you send me the name of that agency via private message? I can help spread the word to my colleagues.

I think that agency will pay eventually Feb 5, 2015

I suddenly received the check of a very small amount one year after the payment deadline. To be honest, I had already forgot it.
