*Consumer Comment: Net-Arb is a Scam
on eLance and had the most unusual experience with net-ARB. The client filed
a dispute notice, would not seek mediation, so there was no option left but to
seek arbitration with net-ARB.
Before that and during
the course of the project delivery the client was so impressed with my writing,
he had offered me co-authorship for a fee waiver. When I declined that he
pressed charges of plagiarism --- without proof. On the contrary, I ran the whole document on copyscape and submitted a report to net-ARB, even
dared the client to run the copy on any other anti-plagiarism software, but he
did not and net-ARB choose not to take note of this behavior.
And guess what?
Eventually, net-ARB ruled against me!!! and asked me not just to refund the
client for the last milestone, but also a previous milestone as well as transferred
the copyrights of the written material --- that had already run into twice the
length I was being paid for because the client wanted me to go on writing --- to
My question is: if the
material was plagiarized, why was the client offering me co-authorship and why
would the arbitration panel decide to transfer the copyright over
"plagiarized material" to the client?
The best part is that net-ARB
begins to pitch its business through emails to both parties even before a
ruling is announced and afterwards, entertains no queries, appeals or
Worse, their "competent
and able arbitrators" English writing skills --- or what can be made out
from the wordings of their ruling leaves a lot of room for improvement:)
Never again, would I
opt for arbitration and certainly not from net-ARB...thank you so much :)
