Banu Translator Cheating Us http://www.translationdirectory.com/forum/messages/?3662
Don't believe that!! http://www.proz.com/?sp=profile&sp_mode=contact&eid_s=1452160

2) Did you meet the deadline?
Yes, of course. Mails can prove.

3) Did the outsourcer complain about the quality of your work?
No. Didn't hear a word.

4) Was payment delayed or not received at all?
50% of payment is not received at all.

5) What did the outsourcer answer to your inquiries about payment?
I asked for several times, the answer was just 2 words "This week" for several times. Not even with an apology.
However, It has been 3 months!
I was so naive to believe such a scam!

6) Would you work for this outsourcer again?
Absolutely No!

Banu invited me into her LinkedIn network. I deleted her invitation after seeing so many complaints against her.

Hello,

I have worked with Flatworldsolutions - Audio Transcription Services, Medical Audio Transcription, Audio Files Transcription Services & struggling hard to get my hard earned money. All translators & other worker are be aware about them & make sure you don't face such issues with them.

Thanks,

Have you worked as translator for Flatworld Solutions and didn't get paid? I have done some transcribing / translating for their agent who goes by the name John Hyde. After I sent the first file, I never heard from him again. Tried to contact him in different ways, but there is no luck. Did you experience the same? What did you do? How can I get paid and should I keep translating for them? thanks a lot

Hi,

I have faced similar issue as per yours. Please stop working with them i.e:- Flatworld Solutions Pvt. Ltd. and spread this news in your groups/contacts. John Hyde will use your work to en-cash payment from their clients however they will say you as sample.

Don't get cheated again & also inform your colleagues/network. Flatworld Solutions Pvt. Ltd. is an agent who seems to work on behalf of their clients & when it comes to payment- they will disappear. As you have faced this situation.

Be Aware!

Thank you! I have figured them out as well by now. John Hyde, after I had done 40 hours of intense work, scripting and translating, explained to me that they were paying $40 not per hour (as initially promised) but per file time, meaning if the file is 120 min long, then the pay is $60. I was stunned. Seeing my reaction, he said he was a good Christian and was going to pay me extra, which came to $170. Ridiculous. I did take the payment that arrived 2 months later, but am not going to work with them again. I was told that Indian companies are best avoided. Thank you for confirming my conclusions.

It's ridiculous to know that they changed their words & paid something different than promised. Moreover late. you should ask premium for it.

Most of time they will approach as sample to win projects.

Hope you learnt a lesson from Flatworld Solutions Inc.

Hi,

It's glad that ultimately you got payment however they are used to push payment time & at last you won't receive any penny from them. Also they are clever in payment clearance as remittance charges will be deducted from your earning.

Did you faced same thing Irina?>
