I did work for Amanda Miron of WONDEMAND. Amanda gets work from Elance and from other sources, and then hires out people, such as myself, to do the writing. For months, I have gone back and forth with Amanda over payment. She put me off, said she had not been paid, and eventually asked if she could be on a payment plan. At that point, she owed me over $1,600, so I knew a payment plan would likely be the best course of action I could take. I agreed to the payment plan, which was $100 a week until the amount owed was completely paid off. Amanda broke her payment plan. Apparently, she had an unexpected business trip to Cuba. I'm not sure how many people who own a freelance business need to travel to Cuba for business. I'm also not sure how she can afford to go to Cuba, but she cannot afford to either pay me in full or at least make the payment owed on the payment plan, as she apparently has the money to go to Cuba.
Now, she owes me over $900, and I have found my work published online. I have not been paid for this work. Amanda is running a scam. Amanda has lied to me about clients. She makes her clients look as if they do not pay, when they have actually paid. Clients have left her feedback on Elance, but yet she acts as if they did not give her any money.
People need to avoid Amanda Miron and WONDEMAND at all costs. She makes you beg for payment and she also "forgets" that she has not paid you. I have reported Amanda to Elance and to the Better Business Bureau, but I will likely have to take legal action in order to get my money.
