Non-payer warning: Ecole USA now operating as Ecole Global Solutions (EGS) and/or Global Solutions Group February 23, 2012Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Scam alert.
I have received word that the agency I refer to as “Dear Client,” Ecole USA, has no intention of ever paying their debts for translation services that have been rendered by numerous translators. If you are owed money (and I know many of you are based on the e-mails I have received) I suggest you file a police report for fraud against the following. If we can do it against Edith Trenou (aka Touareg) then we can do it against Ecole. My debt of $59.08 isn’t worth my taking any action (and frankly I feel I have gotten my money’s worth by writing about them in the blog). I plan on writing it off in April as a business loss. However, I know several translators are owed at least four figures.
They used to operate under the name Ecole BA SRL in Argentina. The information provided on the website is old. I have been told they moved their offices and have not told anyone the new information. They have also offices in the U.S. (Houston), under another name, EGS or Ecole Global Solutions. I have it on good authority that they are using it from now on and pretending they are somebody else.
The owners names are: DANIEL TOREA & CARLOS NACUZZI. They are responsible for all behind the scenes. The project manager CLAUDIA VOSS is the one who contacts the translators. There may be others working with them, because they allegedly hire and fire people all the time.
9/4/2012 Update: they have abandoned the @ecoleusa.com address and are now using @glsolutionsgroup.com. They are operating as Global Solutions Group
