This company purports to provide transportation and translation services and solicits and contracts with independent contractor drivers who answer their advertisements on www.Craigslist.org, to pick-up and drop-off patients/clients to and from their medical appointments.

They contracted to pay me: $50 for each patient I picked up, waited for, and then dropped off with a $10/hour waiting-time fee for waiting time exceeding one hour; $25 for a one-way pick-up/drop-off only (no waiting after the drop-off, although this was originally unclear); $1.10/mile for each mile above a 40-mile round trip, and reimbursement of all bridge tolls paid out-of-pocket.

This company paid me on or about 6/25/08, $249.39, for driving over 576 miles, spending $16 in bridge tolls, and picking-up/dropping off patients for 13-15 trips between 5/1/08 and 6/12/08, with hours of waiting time and several of the trips exceeding 40 miles. I believe I am owed upwards of $1,000 for driving services I provided for which I was underpaid.

I transported people to and from their appointments just as I contracted with this company to do, and apparently they are unwilling to pay as promised. I've had several conversations with the employees who answer phone calls at this company, of which I have kept verbatim records. Their responses are either the check is in the mail, or they don't know why the checks are delayed, or the "owner" has to authorize the release of the checks, etc. Just pay up.

I am currently seeking others who are interested in joining a Class Action Lawsuit against this company. Please contact me if you have also been a victim of this company, thank you. I invite the owner of this company to peruse the 6 (six) invoices I submitted to his staff and either pay up or explain why I've had to wait an additional 3 (three) months without being paid the balance of what I'm owed.

#1 Author of original report

Payment Received

AUTHOR: Shameonyou - (U.S.A.)

I am happy to report that after several conversations with Bill W., partial owner of RX-Medco / Medco Solutions, I received a payment of $648.90 on 10/06/08. The stub that was attached to the check was not very detailed, and in fact, included little more than the date and amount of the check. Of note, the check I received for $249.39, was similarly inelaborate. A transparent accounts payable system is in order and would avoid confusion.

The original amount owed according to my invoices was $1,043.75. As previously stated, I received a payment of $249.39 on or about 06/25/08, and now the payment of $648.90 for a total of $898.29, which is 86% of what was owed to me.

On 10/07/08 at 11:58 a.m., I left a message for a "Susan" at RX-Medco / Medco Solutions, asking her about the discrepancy. I haven't received a call back from her. I attempted to call Bill W., three minutes later, but could not get through to his line or voicemail. As Dave Ramsey might say (www.daveramsey.com), just consider the missing 14% a "stupid tax!" If RX-Medco disagreed with any of the line items on my invoices, I have no way of knowing because of the lack of detail on the checkstubs, hence the need for a more transparent accounts payable system.

However, I do want to extend my sincere thanks to Bill W., because he was very proactive and helpful, returned my calls promptly, and did what he said he would do.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

WORKED AND NOT PAYED FOR IT!

AUTHOR: Tim - (U.S.A.)

Hey...
I was also a victim of the same thing and was also told the "EXACT" same thing word for word about my check, except for me the only difference was that it was my last paycheck that i was not payed for granted it was only 2 drives, it was around $150 that they owed me. they began to harass me and put me down and promise that they would get to the bottom of what was going on until about a year later i finally took them to court (today) and who more better to show up...THE OWNER! we came to an agreement but the owner was reluctant to put it in court writing and instead agreed to write me something on the back of a used piece of paper and also was re-instating my job. They also did the same thing to my girlfriend and they owed her over $500. they didn't pay her her last paycheck and gave her the very same run around that you and i had to go through! also my brothers dad worked for them in Las Vegas and he wasn't payed for the drives that he did either...I also have some back door information as well and have ref's too but was unable to get it all together in time for court. I have twins and no job right now and am on the verge of losing my apartment so between looking for a job and taking care of my twins, i barely had any time to prep for my case....So with all that being said, anybody who this has happened to feel free to e-mail me and i will get in touch with you @ [email protected]
