Re: Languagemet scam
I worked on a project in March 2014 for LanguagMet (PM: Murad Ibrahim), and sent the invoice last week. I got a response saying "Murad is not working since along time and we have no information about his projects and we are trying to get information about your project".
They owe me 392.55 USD. The project had no issues other than we renegotiated the deadline within the required time, and there were no quality issues. My correspondence with the agency's PM is documented on my skype, and Mr Murad gave me his LanguageMet e-mail address at the time for forwarding files. Also, he was liaising with the agency's director at the time of renegotiating the deadline, so I am quite sure this project was handled by the agency.
I have since realised there are countless scam alerts about this agency on proz, google, and other internet sites, and there are no debt collection agencies in Israel to speak of (except for one with a higher fixed cost for starting the collection procedure than it is prudent for me to spend, given their high credit risk rating). All I can do at this stage is to notify other translators through all the internet channels available to me to ensure others do not waste their time with this agency.
I would like other translators to be aware that they would be better off investing their time doing some other non-paid productive activity, because this agency - LanguageMet - is extremely unreliable.
