VP Audio had an advertisement online that they were looking for more voice over talents to add to their company because they provide voice over services to different clients. After several emails with Jeff Wade, we agreed to work together. He sent me 3 different phone scripts for 3 companies for me to record. I sent the recordings to him on March 26, 2010. He initially told me it would only take a few days for the clients to approve or request any revisions and then I would be paid through Paypal. The last email I received from him was on April 7, 2010 at which point he said at least 1 script was approved and he could send me payment via Paypal anytime so please provide my Paypal address. I did so and that is the last I have heard from him.
I finally called VP Audio on April 14th and a man answered the phone. He said Jeff was out of the office but would relay my message to him. He knew about the work I had done, said the recordings were sent to all 3 clients and assured me Jeff would be in contact. It is now April 20th and after several more emails and phone calls, no one has returned my calls. No one answers the phone anymore no matter what time I call. I looked up the company on the BBB website and not surprisingly, they have numerous customer complaints and an "F" rating.
I spent several hours doing work for VP Audio and now they are ignoring me and have not paid me for my work. It is clear they are a terrible business to work for and obviously many customers agree with me who reported them to the BBB. They owe me $75 and I have given them every opportunity to contact me back to resolve this issue but it has been over 3 weeks and Jeff has not paid me as he promised.
