In February 2008 METROMODE Magazine, owned by Bill Cameron / Cameron Ink, Inc., hired me as a freelance writer. I was assigned an article in May that was to come out in future issues, paying $100.

In June, I was assigned another article that was to pay $100. I submitted both assigned articles to METROMODE, but never received payment.

After a few weeks had passed and payment had still not come, I started asking questions. The editor confided that he had not been paid either, and told me to contact Bill Cameron, who was in charge of getting the checks out. Mr. Cameron had made not effort to notify me that payment would be delayed.

Once I contacted Mr. Cameron, he said he wasn't able to pay yet but would pay me as soon as he could. This was when payment was about three weeks late, and the excuses continued for the next month or so. Mr. Cameron did mention the possibility of a payment plan, but evaded any efforts to pin him down to even an initial payment.

Two other writers, the editor and I started collaborating, and when payment was two months late we emailed Mr. Cameron with a two-week time frame in which he needed to pay us, or we would begin filing complaints against him. At first Mr. Cameron threatened to not pay us at all if we reported him. Then he offered a payment plan, to which we responded with certain terms that would have to be met if we were to agree to a payment plan:

1. The first payment to each of us needed to be made by the deadline.
2. He needed to give us a payment schedule with firm dates and payment amounts, and
3. If he was more than two weeks late on any payment, to any one of us, we would report him as originally planned.

Initially Mr. Cameron agreed to this, but once we accepted the arrangement he quickly began backpedaling. Suddenly he couldn't possibly make the first payment by the deadline, and he flatly refused to give us any dates or amounts of future payments.

To date, Bill Cameron / METROMODE Magazine / Cameron Ink owes me a total of $200.

I'm Bill Cameron, owner and publisher of Metromode magazine. I believe this rip-off report is from J.C. O'Connell. I have no issues with J.C. I will pay J.C. the $200 upon hearing from her. i have no idea how to reach her at this point. Once we have com to a fulfilled agreement on pay, this rip-off report must come down. 

Thank you,

Bill Cameron
