    Hello,
    So I need some help here,
    I work in a hosting company for awhile already, and the payment is weekly based.
    But recently, I didnt get paid for 2 weeks, I can't reach the person that is hiring me because he said he's busy, 4 days ago I cannot login to WHMCS, Zopim Live Chat and company email. I contact one of their staff they say dont know either and I havent receive any info from the person that hire me.
    What should I do ? :( I think he's avoiding me, the company is already there for 2 years and had good reputation.

    Thanks.

    If it were me, I would have nipped this in the bud the first week they didn't pay me. There is absolutely no reason why a reputable company would be late on payments that happen on a schedule.

    Maybe stop working for them would be a start, till you get a reply. Then when they reply, tell them to show you the money, or else you are going to hit the road. If it comes to that, consider those 2 weeks a waste of your life, and put it past you. Unless you want to get all legal on them to sue for backpayment which you can do, nothing else to do but walk away.

    And of course, you can rant about them in a YT video to damage their rep. for non-payment to a worker. That might throw some salt in their eyes for doing that to you.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the reply,
    The person hired me always available and nice before, but now when I Email, Submit Ticket, or Live Chat through their site he's not responding.
    The whole company staff is ignoring me as well.
    Actually, I keep working on and waiting until recently they close my zopim account and whmcs.
    Do you think I should open a new thread in webhostingtalk.com for my experience with them or something?

    Thanks.

    did you consider thinking he might be sick, or in the hospital, maybe he got in an accident and cant get to the computer, if you say hes always been nice and never was late on payment maybe something happened to him. don't always assume the worst.

    Hello,
    I don't know but the chance is very low.
    I tried to reach him on GTALK, and now It became "message not delivered"
    I submit ticket on the company billing panel, but no one respond to me, he's not the only founder, kind of right hand.

    How could somebody here help you? If he's not replying then probably, you could not get the payment anymore.

    Since payment is weekly based, why exactly did you keep working without receiving money for another week? Chances are (99%) that you've been scammed, buddy. Best thing you can do is move on and tell others about your experience with this "reputable" company.
