Help!! I'm A Contractor Not Getting Paid...!


Hi All,

I wonder if someone out there is able to help me.

I am currently working on a client site on behalf of an agency in the Uk. I have been contracting for them for the past 9 months, however, it looks as though the company is folding (the agency that is) and as far as I can see, I am not going to get paid.

Does anybody out there know if there are any companies out there that will secure me - i.e. take over the client contract and essentially take over the payments to me?

Advice would be greatley appreciated...

Thank you.

Your in IT - wrong type of contractor...

Talk to your agency & make sure they are folding, who might be buying the contract, etc... If you are worth your price - the company your doing the work for might hire you

This is both shocking and outrageous, this is the first time I have ever heard of a customer not paying for services rendered, I would contact President Obama to see if he would use the military to secure your payment or else.

Yep, if he will invade Pakistan, its a no-brainer invading a 'safe' country. But wait! There's more. If you order now, you can receive your portion of the USA stimulus package. That's right, folks, half of this package is designed to be used overseas so call in the next 30 minutes and we will send you this fine Homeowner's Rescue Program absolutely free.

Obama won't need the military. He will just exercise the new right to seize any company he feels needs seizing. Then you will just work for him. Of course, he will tax you to death, and 90% on any bonuses you pay your employees. Maybe you’re just better off eating the loss and spending a few days on the beach....

It's all fun and games until someone's eye gets poked out, kid.

My dog licks her wounds until they heal. Can you get your tongue on it or do you need a dog too?

Thanks for trying us, but I think you have the wrong idea.

This site is for construction professionals that ply their trade by building, repairing and installing in the non-cyber world.

This post is out of scope for this site, so I'm closing the thread.
