How Our Site Works

Welcome to our friendly writer to writer warning site. This site allows writers to warn others about clients who have not paid them for work done. The person that maintains this blog makes no claims to any validity of any of the statements made by others on this site. This is not a site where we pursue any legal action, and we intend no harm against anyone mentioned here. It is simply a place for writers to talk about clients that they have had who did not pay them for their work.

If you are mentioned on this site, and you think that you have been misrepresented, PLEASE comment to explain to others the situation. This is a place for writers to leave their own experiences about what has happened to them. If you have worked with a writer that is angry with you and has posted your name here, PLEASE defend yourself! We seek to explore all of the options and we want to hear your side of the story!

What If A Scammer Approaches You For Work?

If someone listed on this site, or on others sites approaches you and asks you to do work, how should you answer? The polite way is to say "No, thank you" or simply not to reply to the email. BUT THIS WONT STOP THEM FROM SCAMMING!

The only way to make things like this blog work is to reply to them with the truth. Say, for instance, "I saw your name and email on a blog warning me about scammers. Because of that, I will work for you, but only on a pre-pay basis. You pay me first, and then I will do the work." The only way that we can stop these people is by making them aware that we all know what they are doing. Let them know upfront. Make them go to the trouble of changing their email addresses again and again again. It is one of the only things that we poor, unrepresented writers can do to try to stop it. Stand up for yourself. TELL them that you know they are a scammer.

Brian Wall (Taken from freelancewriting.com)

Has anyone ever worked for Brian Wall? I wrote a number of articles for him last year which he never paid me for and I am now finding these articles published online. I plan on posting this info where ever possible. Many writers that hang out at this job site are here because they desperately need the money. I am tired of seeing those that can least afford it being ripped off by others for personal gain.

I haven't, but I've done this and been extremely successful. Whichever sites have posted your articles, go to them and demand they either pay up or take your article down. Should they refuse, you can then go to the domain that hosts that web site and tell them your work has been plagiarized. In most cases, this is a direct violation of the contract you sign with the host, and they'll take the web site down.

Do exactly what Tracy said...that's how you can nail these scammers to the wall by going to the host company!
