It is my understanding that many of these agencies are declaring bankruptcy or are actually have financial issues. I did work for a company sometime last year, and had made several attempts to contact everyone I could think of. Finally, I reached back out using the method I'd initial began using when I was thanked for completing the assignment. I was very apologetic and explained how I had been through all of my records and just did not remember being paid for the particular assignment and had mentioned all payments were through e-check and I that had left messages with the account and manager and no one was calling me back, so if I had made a mistake somewhere and a check had been cut, I did not receive it and please send another.
The shocking responses:
I finally received several responses from two different people. I was sent a check and email at 4am the next day with a message telling me that I needed to cash the check it it this was not possible, then to deposit it because if I did not, the funds might not be available the following day or any time after. (I did not even get to read my emails that day for whatever reason until 6pm). I replied with the words "Thank you" and snap deposited the check.
The next morning I had two more emails telling me that I did not cash the get and that my time was running out.
What I failed to mention above is that in the letter with the deposit directions, it also mentioned how the company was experiencing financial issues. None of this explains why a company continues to employ notaries all the while knowing there's no money to pay them. Nevertheless, If there's a problem with a payment one time. I think there should be some type of agency to report it to.
There might be one.
