there are not too many secretes to be revealed, it is easy:
they already got paid while they cover their own expenses and
waiting for another job to pay you.
Is that simple!
This translation payment practice
website is a public service when it comes to
inquire about a business or individual that his or
her practices are least to desire. This is the only way to get their attention: negative publicity.
Eventually, they will realize it and pay you. Don't be stupid! Ask for 50% upfront. If they
refuse, then, you know that they are not serious. Look for direct clients and let it go translation

These are the most common and louzy excuses

The following excuses are:

1.) D
o not answer phone calls
(hide behind voice mail)
2.) Hide behind the monitor.

 3) Pay via paypal, get the service, are
satisfied and then turn around and place a
charge back with a lousy excuse that the charge was
not authorized.

4) Make their own conclusions and set justice with
their own hands.

5) Never reply to email messages in
regards to the matter.

6) "Oh I need to wait the client pay me
so I can pay you bullshit.

7.) "Oh! We only pay within 90 days bullshit!"

8) "Oh! we do not use paypal, can you accept a "Check"?
(do you really believe that?)
 only issue checks that
bounces whenever one deposit, or even
"stew" you to believe that the check was indeed mailed.

7) All the imaginable "Oh!" I am very so sorry Bullshit
one can imagine
Translation agencies to believe all translators
are stupids or idiots

8) Shabby business practices on hold funds from customers
and releasing them at their own convenience. will tell you
that you are prone for issues! Bunch of bullshit!

9)Paypal is the worse online payment system!
Do a google search
on paypal customer complaints.

10) One-way right. Customer is very powerful, and
invincible, and always "right" behind
a computer screen or telephone with
irrational and uneducated manners.

11) Oh! I am so sorry for the fucking inconvenience, blah blah blah!

Translation Agencies don't care for you! Remember that!

El Dorado Hills Apartments, Tierra Santa, San Diego
Be careful when renting property at El Dorado Hills. If you pay rent late, they will be
harassing tenant by placing eviction notices at your door despite paying the late fee. If you settle
an eviction notice once, you cannot get another one or have a chance to settle it. The manager,
Jonathan Herbert does have an attitude by saying: "Oh! There is no special treatment!"
Seems like you are doing him a favor! They forget that the tenant signs his paycheck. No wonder
it is always vacant! Bunch of BS....


You can open the account and start invoicing customers. Then, they will hold your funds for
a week. By then, you will find out that they have NAB who funds the transaction
investigating your charges. By then, they will turn around, decline to fund and close the account
without notifying the customer account holder. They will ask you a ton of stuff and
take their sweet time. The only way to contact them is placing a phone call. They do not reply to
email messages. Thus, leaving you in the COLD! This one here should be closed now. Exercise Caution!

Walden University

Having to wait more than 24 hours to speak with a Financial Aid Manager.
When you call the main number and speak with someone that you need to talk
to a manager, they tell you that they will send a message to the manager.
Apparently, it seems to be a one man or woman operation.
Walden University Financial Aid Department is a total mystery as
to when student's refund are actually released. They must be collecting a good
interest telling students that there is a 14 days waiting period to release the refund.
It takes forever to receive a reply via email.
Yet, they are swift in removing anything to
do with scheduled disbursements. Try to speak or contact Walden Financial Aid Director?
You won't! The only thing Walden University is good is when you owe them money.
Their collection efforts are quick, they will call you! Can you imagine this? Is this customer
service? Nobody at Walden University can tell you when your student refund will
be releases, not the Walden Financial Aid Department, Walden Refunds Department,
Walden Bursar Office but they sure know when the money comes in and
hold the funds at their convenience and make interest of your student loan.

Merchant One
Try to speak with someone to assist you with your issue? They give you the runaround.
What bank they do business with?
They think that customer is stupid or came in the US on
a loaded truck of watermelons. There is no way that whoever they bank with to deposit funds
are in the United States. They tell you that the funds are wired, but they never tell when
it will be credited to your designated checking or savings account.
and no one can tell you that. They blame the receiving bank.  Their bank is not in the US base
on evidence presented for 12 months. Exercise Caution
