Su Mei Loo aka Actualize.com www.actualize.com Writers beware - Su Mei Loo is running a scam and never pays writers she contracts with. New York City Internet
Su Mei Loo works for Actualize.com, a scam company based in Singapore. She is actively recruting low bidders on freelance sites like odesk.com and elance.com to become "lifestyle writers" for an upcoming website based on Maslow's theories.
She provides enough information to be credible - writers guidelines and approved content topics. If you submit your writing to her she always gives incredibly supportive and glowing feedback...from one of her emails:
"Tony - you are an amazing writer! Thank you for a well researched, incredibly engaging article."
Sounds like a great client, yes? Here's the rub: she doesn't pay.
At first, she gives you reasonable excuses - oh, sorry just forgot, and "oh yes, we are a start up and need to hire someone to push the "pay" button next to your invoices" and "we will get to it next week and we'll make sure all future invoices are paid immediately"
Dont fall for Su Mei Loo's scams! She never pays. Once she has all the copy (she hires multiple writers for each project she posts) she simply closes her account, makes up a new email address, and enlists more naive writers to produce content for her (that she promptly resells to sites like textbroker.com.
Unfortunately, Su Mei Loo is not the only scammer on odesk , freelancer, and elance. But if enough writers complain on ripoffreport.com, maybe we can prevent future writers from falling for her scams.
