Follow up to "Mahalo Refuses to pay it's Mentors"

As there has been a great deal of interest in my recent post "Mahalo Refuses Mentors Payments" and I've received several emails inquiring as to how things are proceeding I figured I'd better post some follow up.

Unfortunately there really isn't much to say. I had to wait until the end of December for them to contact me with the total number of pages they were refusing payment on. All told it ended up being 257 pages for a total of $2,510.00.

Following the legal guidelines I was given I sent them a demand of payment letter. In any situation such as this you must show proof that you contacted them asking for payment. So now the waiting game begins, they have until the end of the month to respond or remit payment.

I found out today that they have removed my greenhouse account, previously it was active even though it was not in use. I didn't plan on building any more pages so thats not really an issue however I found it funny.

    Sounds like they are running with their tales between their legs. It's not fair that they screw people like that. Hope you get your money and hope they realize how much they f**cked up.

    I am really sorry that you are going through all of this to get paid. I always saw you as one of the best mentors and I was sad to see you go. I really hope that you get the money that you deserve. You were always such a hard worker and I hate that you have to fight to get your money.

    I hope this all works out soon.

    This is horrible i've frequently had problem with delay/ petty payment disputes with them. i really wish they would get their crap together. atleast they haven't gone down like ChaCha did

  4. Follow up: Today was their last day to pay up and there was no resolution. So it looks like I get to go through the tortures of the legal system. Wish me luck!!
