New here and not sure where to post this.
Apparently They are a relatively new company and we have been getting work orders from them for several months now. there is almost no contact from them regarding pay, they owe us in the area of a couple thousand dollars for work done, they agree that they owe us money but wont pay on any schedule.
We have gone above and beyond for them and they still wont pay. Well let me clarify, the sent a couple of walmart money orders ($500 and 300) with no list of what we were getting paid for.. they are still behind at least $1000 with more to come. unfortunately this was our main company we focused on due to the amount of work promised. We are now so far in the hole its impossible to do any work at all. in the last week they promised us another payout to settle us up to current, every day an email or text saying it would be tomorrow. and every day a different relative either dies or goes into the hospital. We are on the Verge of losing everything to these clowns and we cannot even get them to answer the phone.
Tl;Dr- who do we contact to report them and or get our $$ owed straight from who pays them?
File a police report see if that helps
Many different laws at different levels which should help you get things rolling on the next level.
You probably have state laws related to theft, regardless you should have fed laws to assist you.
