Schmidt Quality Construction, Inc. / BE WARNED - Schmidt Quality Construction doesn't pay their bills!
My complaint refers to non-payment by Schmidt Quality Construction, Inc. 1001 Curtiss St.
Downers Grove, IL 60515 Office: [protected] If you are a freelance artist, stay away from Schmidt Quality Construction, Inc. of Downers Grove, Illinois.
At the beginning of 2007 I was hired by Schmidt Quality Construction as a freelance artist to design and deliver two different print ads for two publications for $400 ea. The ads were approved, delivered on time, and were printed. I have copies of the two directories that published them. Schmidt never paid me for my services. Instead they tried to get me to do more design work for them. Uh, "fool me twice is bad enough, but three times? No way.
They never return phone calls. They always have an excuse for everything like, "your payment was sent to the wrong address" and "our accounting department lost your files" and "your check is in the mail" etc., etc.
I have a pile of emails from multiple people at their company praising my work and promising me payment. BE WARNED - Schmidt Quality Construction doesn't pay their bills. Well, not unless you are their cell phone company, car dealership, gas station, grocery store, etc.
I fully expect to see a posting from their company in response to my legitimate complaint, revising history, and somehow blaming me for their repeatedly hiring me, repeatedly using my graphic designs, repeatedly promising payment, then just ignoring the invoices, emails, and phone calls for almost a year now.
