Can not even trust a Senior Member on here
Everyone on here vents on regional and national companies, but maybe we should watch out for our own within this community. This thread is about a senior member on this community who is screwing me out of $665. I will give a quick story of what happened, but just wanted to warn others about getting work from people on this site. Sorry for the long thread. Just want to make sure all details are here.
Back in early November I was asked by PPPrincessNOT if I wanted to complete jobs for her in southern Illinois, she had no one else to complete. The miles to complete these orders came up to be just shy of 600 miles to be traveled. She sent me a price through text of $40 for interior photos on house and $65 for a padlock and hasp if needed. She also told me I would get a $100 trip charge for the distance. I thought about it for a day and decided with Christmas coming up I could use the money to get good gifts for my two younger kids. I confirmed pricing she sent me through email to her and she confirmed.
I completed all the jobs that Friday on 11-06-15, but one because of darkness. I called her and confirmed it would be okay to complete the last one Saturday morning, which I did by 8am. She also confirmed that the pictures where great. I shared a Dropbox folder with her. I also informed her that the padlocks used was A389. The invoice came up to be $665.00 which I sent to her on 11-09-15.
By 11-25-15 I have not heard from her yet so I inquired about payment on the invoice which she texted back, "Ill send out your check this weekend". I still have all texts and correspondence. On 12/8/15 I still have not recieved anything and I texted her again asking about the check. She replied that she sent out the check on 12/7/15. On 12/16/15 I still have not received it and again I texted her. She replied, "Ill overnight it, Send me your addy again." Anyways this went on several more times. Her telling me she will send check with tracking number and nothing happened.
Finally reached her husband on 12/20/15 and he tells me they have not been paid yet he will contact the accounting department for his client and he has no idea why his wife, PPPrincessNOT, has been telling me for a month she has been sending my check out. On 12/22/15 I had to reach out to the husband again which he texted me that his client processed check and he will let me know in am when they are sending out. Of course I never heard back from both of them and they were refusing to take my calls or answer text.
Eventually I called PPPrincessNOT on a different number so she answered. Telling me that I misunderstood the pricing she sent me and that the clients were unable to get into any of the homes I went to. I told her I used the A389, which I have photo proof, on all the homes and she is just lying. She then stated she would send me email from her client showing that they could not gain access. Well of course I never received the email and I am unable to reach them any longer.
Lets see if she responds and what lies she spews this time. Do not take work from them.
