Contact information:

Maxine was contracted on June 17th 2010 to write for my company, WV Writing Services as a solo Freelance writer. On this date, she was informed that if she made over $600, she would be required to by the US law to fill out a W-8 form for tax purposes and would have to submit a TIN or ITIN #. She did fill out one as an individual. However, later in July, she started working for us as a company that she started called WordsTraders, so she was asked to fill out the new form for tax purposes. She made over $3000 under this new paypal address and this new company name and to this date refuses to fill out the proper paperwork for our tax purposes. However, she keeps sending threatening emails and skype messages to us and other staff members. Here latest rant, "On 11/30/2010 9:06 PM, Maxine wrote:

I will expect payment in 2 hours. You do not have any reasons not to pay me.
If payment does not come in, I know who your clients are, I know where my articles are. I will post comments on all of those articles and I will paste your transcripts, including your verbal abuses.
Know that I know how SEO works, and I know how Online Reputation Management works. I will file a complaint to BBB, [redacted], ripoffrant,,,
you name it. you know how difficult it is to get those complaints out of page one of Google. your business will die within weeks. I have nothing to lose, you have. Ill send your transcripts to (blanked out to protect an identity) and all of your other clients. Ill file a complaint to elance, and all the other platforms where you get work from.
No one will ever write for you anymore as soon as they know about your deeds. I will tell all of the Filipino writers not to get work for you. Believe me, that will be the end of your HUGE WVWRITINGSERVICES. You are a cheat, an abusive person. Everyone will know that soon. You are one huge scammer, Michele Walls. And your business will die soon. hey, just so you know, you cannot sue me. ill have you sued. BBB will look into your business. and ill report you to FBI too, for your internet fraud business. You have 2 hours.

All US companies looking for content beware, she will not give you the proper paperwork you will need to file your taxes. Unless you want to go to jail or pay taxes for her, stay away from her and her companies. She operates under several names and several paypal addresses. Her paypal address she uses is not even hers. Who knows who she really is? She has a team of writers and told us she was in CA. Come to find out, she is in the Philippines. On the Internet, she has profiles that say she is in New York, and California. Now she is threatening to post about our company not paying her, let the record be known. We pay all writers who provide the proper paperwork required to work in the US. WV Writing Services grosses over $250, 000 a year and pays taxes like any other US based company. If you write for us and make over $600 a year you will be required to fill out the proper IRS paperwork. If you refuse your pay will be held and sent to the IRS on your behalf as a withheld amount for your taxes with the paperwork were you refused to fill out the required paperwork. Everyone has to pay taxes, and Maxine is not better than all the other people in this world who earns income and pays taxes.

Thank you

    Sadly, that's why it's best to ALWAYS get the proper tax forms before assigning any work.

    this is great!!! you just showed what a cheat and a liar you are. this just put you out in the open. lemme paste here our transcripts so that people will know how a big liar, verbally abusive and a cheat you are:

    oh and by the way, you may own a content/writing company, but your english is as terrible as

    [10/27/2010 7:39:58 AM] hitwoman: [5:20:26 AM] hitwoman: hi rocco hi michele, in light of what has happened, and seeing that i need to pay my writers immediately, i reassessed my situation. my writers are expecting payment, and i do not have the means to do so at the moment. hence, may i request to pull out all the articles we sent you that were not used, in effect, not yet paid?
    an entity offered to purchase all of the articles.
    this way, you will no longer have an outstanding balance with me,
    and i will be able to pay my bills and the writers, too. it is really important for me to get the payment for these articles, as i have my responsibilities to 24 people who helped me complete these projects. as per my last count, there are 413 unpaid articles, and i may use them as i see fit as they have not yet been paid.
    thank you.
    [6:59:28 AM] michele walls: this is bull ###
    [6:59:45 AM] michele walls: you know the articles were delivered and everyone was used
    [7:02:54 AM] michele walls: and will be used, I will give all of my clients your info and if you sell something that is under contract you can and will be sued

    [7:04:14 AM] michele walls: if you were responsible and actually proofed what you have us in the first place like you have said you would so many times before we would have not had to deal with this
    [7:12:59 AM] michele walls: you know I gave and gave you a chance to get you crap together
    [7:26:36 AM] michele walls: yet you want to put JC in charge and he does not even look at what he sends, I gave you a raise before everyone else under agreement that we would get perfect content
    [7:27:08 AM] michele walls: Rocco told you and told you to get JC to check the work, I mean how hard is it to check the work
    [7:27:18 AM] michele walls: I check 400-500 articles a day
    [7:27:33 AM] michele walls: its not hard and its part of your job as a freelance writer
    [7:33:57 AM] hitwoman: AND I CAN DO WITH THEM AS I WISH
    [7:33:59 AM] michele walls: they were used
    [7:34:03 AM] hitwoman: AS THEY HAVE NOT BEEN PAID YET
    [7:34:06 AM] michele walls: by our clients

    [7:36:54 AM] hitwoman: THANK YOU
    [7:37:08 AM] hitwoman: !!!
    [7:37:10 AM] hitwoman: REMEMBER THAT

    i have more skype conversations to share, just so that people will know how a big liar you are.

    the articles were used a long time ago, yet you still havent paid for them. now you go under the tax blanket, which shows that you really do not intend to pay. i already spoke to the IRS and they are looking at you for abuse.

    [11/8/2010 5:30:41 PM] michele walls: I know roc told you guys to fix them but they were due that morning
    [11/8/2010 5:30:53 PM] michele walls: I had to fix them right then I could not rate
    [11/8/2010 5:31:12 PM] michele walls: I can not understand why JC sent those like that
    [11/8/2010 5:32:30 PM] michele walls: here is one sentence right here that is wrong
    [11/8/2010 5:32:31 PM] michele walls: During times of immediate financial crisis, a payday loan would have to be the best way to go for instant cash.
    [11/8/2010 5:32:48 PM] michele walls: As always, we end thinking bad about it afterwards.
    [11/8/2010 5:32:55 PM] michele walls: there's a few samples
    [11/8/2010 5:34:43 PM] michele walls: I did not take notes cause I was extremely pissed that on a premium account JC would send crap like that

    Maxine, you can post and say whatever lie's you want in here. I do not care. I only care about you sending me the EIN # that you said you applied for in the email you sent me the other day. WV Writing Services operates by the law. Send the CORRECT INFO and you will be paid. Please note, WV Writing Services will be on Christmas Vacation from Dec. 13th 2010 - Jan. 10th 2011. I do hope you get the EIN # to me before Monday, so your payment is not held longer.

    Thank you

    This character, Michelle Walls, is no saint herself. She's just as bad as this Maxine. Members of the same species, I guess.
