I would like to ask you if you know any forum where translators can share & discuss experiences with badpayers. I think it is very important to share these experiences to avoid problems to other colleagues.

Fortunately, in 12 years of career I have just met one badpaying company, but who knows? I would like to get info about unknown companies before accepting jobs!

Thank you!

Hello Blanca Mar 4, 2003

In addition to what Natalie proposed you might try out WorldPaymentPracticeFree on Yahoo:

There have been rather lively discussions there recently.

You have to register but otherwise it is free.

Just another mailing list Mar 5, 2003

Dear Blanca,

we are unprotected. You can use only mailing lists to do something for yourself and the others. This one is good one.
