Do another freelancer a favor and tell us which companies don’t pay their bills.

Anyone every have an issue with an agency paying you an hourly, and not being upfront about the hours prospected per day... until your last day, and then have an issue when the invoice is sent in?

So was my check mysteriously lost in the mail or does it take 6-7 days to get from one part of Brooklyn to another?! On a check that was already late

LuckeYou in NYC. They talked me into accepting 3/4 my hourly rate. Dragged their feet about "letting" me invoice bc client killed the project. THEN took nearly FOUR to pay me...

I’d list the last agency that didn’t pay me but they actually closed up shortly after. Sadly the content I wrote is on their client’s site - but it’s not the client’s fault the agency didn’t pay me.

Got a non-paying client we need to avoid? We’ve all had clients who don’t pay their bills. Feel free to list them by name, how much they owe and how long they’re past due. It’s anonymous, after all!
