Non-payning agency PEARL LINGUISTICS

Non-payning agency PEARL LINGUISTICS
Sender: Nataliya Vesnina 20-02-2017 12:05

These people have recently upgraded from bad payers to non-payers.

I actually don’t know if they post jobs on Translationdirectory, but if they do, I would like them banned so that other fellow translators don’t have to experience what I am experiencing now. Originally I started working with them after they posted on Proz, where I am a member. Now, as far as I can see, they are banned from posting jobs there – no doubt as a result of non payments.

I have 2 outstanding invoices at the moment. One of them was due on December 22, 2016, the other – on January 22, 2017. Sadly, there’s also a 3rd invoice that will be due in 2 days and I suspect it will also not be paid.

I have a history with this agency and previously they delayed payments, and their usual strategy was to claim the payment was sent and blame it on the international bank transfers hoping to buy some time while I am wasting my time on contacting the bank managers and making them try to find the payment in the system that simply was never sent in the first place. Then, when pressured, after a week or two, they would sent me a payment document from which it would be clear that the payment was not actually sent the day they said it was sent.
Now the situation is different. It seems they have no intention to pay me. Ever. And they are not even trying to concel it. The finance department do not respond to my mails. One of the PMs sent me a job 2 weeks ago and I said I wouldn’t accept any jobs until my invoices are paid. You know what she said? NOTHING. Which probably means she knows the company has no intention of paying me. Within the last months I did get 3 replies in total (in cases when I sent something more or less threatening – it looks like you cannot be nice with these people) saying “I will check our records and get back to you on this”. Needless to say they never did.

Here is all the information I have regarding the address, emails and website:
