Dear All,

Hope you are well. I did a translation job for an Egyptian agency more than two months ago. They were supposed to pay the money after one month but they have not paid me yet! I have sent several official and personal emails to them but no answer has been received.
Checking their profile, I see that they have not paid to another translator.
I have put a negative feedback in their profile. What can I do next?

Kindesr regards,
Salman

Hi,

You need to tell the fact to ProZ so that no body else gets robbed the same way.

Cheers,

MoH

As as general rule Nov 21, 2009

As a general rule, the amounts involved in nonpayment rarely justify hiring a lawyer and going to court. And even then, courts take years and years to settle any cases. Bad / fraudulent outsourcers know this and take advantage of it.

I would recommend checking out each and every outsourcer in depth and asking for advance payment if there is any kind of doubt.

Also, you may want to read the advice offered in this thread: http://www.proz.com/forum/money_matters/151328-another_spanish_agency_unwilling_to_pay.html#1266926

Good luck.
