Jim Lott, owner of NurseCorps hired me (paralegal) to work on a proposal to the Veterans Administration. NurseCorps wants to supply nurses to the VA on a temporary basis.
Among other things, Lott is a procrastinator. He didn't submit any info for 4 months. Due to his procrastination, we had to complete a second proposal after completing the first proposal because the VA had updated their proposal package.
After I did all the work, he refused to pay my bill (at the agreed-upon rate.) Instead of asking to discuss the invoice, he screamed, accused me of charging too much, called me names and refused to pay the bill. (My bill had time and complete description of all the work performed.)
I gave him a discount to try to get some money without having to resort to taking him to Small Claims court. He still refused to pay. I gave him another discount, which amounted to almost half of the balance of the bill. He finally paid this and then sent me an e-mail saying, "Kiss my a*s."
This guy is unbelievable. I do the work for him, he cheats me out of money he owes me, he insults me and then sends me a rude e-mail? He is a thoroughly disagreeable person and less time spent around him, the better.
After this happened to me, I found out he cheated another paralegal out of money he owed them. I also found out from his assistant that he didn't pay at least one of the temporary nurses what he owed her.
This guy is bad news. He is nice until he has to pay the bill. Then he becomes rude, obnoxious and completely out of control. I think he rips off most people and they don't do anything about it because he is so unpleasant to deal with.
If Jim Lott contacts you to do some work for him or NurseCorps, run the other way as fast as you can!
