I was wondering if you could help me out with this problem. I have written
several articles for the website: http://www.lawsuitsearch.com
and have always been paid
the agreed upon fee. It is work for hire.
During the month of May 2006 I was assigned 2 articles, both of which were
completed and posted on the Lawsuit Search website. After several weeks of delay and an email exchange I was paid in mid-June--BUT only for ONE article.
I have sent several emails to two of my contacts there requesting an
explanation of why I was not paid. I have even offered to accept a delayed payment in
the event of money problems as long as I know I will be paid soon. The amount
of money is not a large sum ($50), nonetheless I would like to be paid for
The article was posted on the website on June 22, 2006.
I have received NO RESPONSE to my emails.
Jason Tarlowe is the one that sends the payments. He has several email
John Parker is the one I deal with for writing assignments. He also has
several email addresses: JP@lawsuitsearch.comjohnparkerIII@gmail.com
