That company will not pay you.
Their answer to not getting paid is that they are so backed up that checks are taking a little longer than usual to go out.
Its now 10 months and I never not got a penny of my 1600 or more dollars for work that was done.
This accounting person Christine lies through her teeth and is still trying to get me to do more work.
here is what she said to me in an email:
If you recall I did tell you, it would be changed to direct pay, and it has, sometimes when assuming is in the equation, it doesn’t matter. As far as payment, we had discussed that a payment would be sent with the stipulation of you doing the order, and you did not.
The nerve! I think she just said I am not getting paid because I did not do that last report she was trying to trick me into. lol
Who ever is accepting reports now should not do them. I just gave them back 20 reports because they haven't paid me.

What happ'd in the end with this, I see it's an old thread, but how did it end?
Boca Raton, FL
Read this then imagine what could be happening at BPP.com
If you recall WAMU was guilty of extorting appraisals in the old days. Now, the same crew is taking down the BPO providers.
Since then, I've setup a paypal account for the purposes of billing for BPO's, I've sent invoices, along with finance charges, and now placing the account with a collection service. I think 50% is better than nothing at all. It's interesting, because they still call, and I tell them that payment is due at the time of completion through paypal. Of course, they tell me it's usually 60 days before they get paid, to which I always tell the person calling "That's a long time to wait as an employee for a paycheck - how do you get by?" The broker.....com person will then usually say words not too polite, and hang up.
I'm checking on the legality of what is going on, and I'll advise when I get there. Meanwhile, be sure to post a complaint with the BBB and ripoffreport.com.
DENVER Company- First Valuations Rips off Thousands!
Here is the legacy of the creeps you work with:
So far they have amassed enough ripped off agents for a class action; National Realtors may join in our efforts.
You should pay me, as I will not go away.
I am contacting these folks next:
Apparently the checks in the mail
check with me later
GThody Managing Broker
Coldwell Banker, Inc.
I have called. I have emailed. I have been promised to be paid on no less than 4 occasions.
I have yet to receive a single check.
If you receive an email or phone call from any of these companies- DO NOT accept any work order.
It's time that we, as agents, start billing companies like this. An appraiser is paid either upfront or at closing. We give our services away when a promise to pay is never a reality.
So, the next time brokerpriceopinion.com calls, follow my lead. Either they accept an invoice for the order, or paypal the payment in advance.
I have contacted them twice on this matter.
They continue calling with work orders. I have told the person calling that I would happy to do the work order, but to have some one from billing call me first to discuss the payment issue and then I would do the order. Never a call back!
Class Action: Attorney To Gather BPO Nonpayment Complaints
"I used to do BPO's for the Cartel Asset Management company, and this was back in 1996 to 2001," wrote Rowe to Realty Times. "The headaches of trying to get paid were pretty much as you have described by others. I was very persistent (calling and sending letters), until I made sure I collected for all of these BPO's. But once I did collect, well needless to say, I decided I was not a collection agency and refused to do any more of their BPO's."
When I asked about payment, first they said 60 days. At 60 days, I asked, then I was told 90 days, then payment plan, no payments.
I have been researching the resposnible parties and pssible contacts to assist with my collection.

We do pay our agents!
I entered these blogs and conversations to explain we are a much better, stronger company today, we do not have financial problems, the company needed better processes and procedures for all involved and we have implemented those processes.
At BrokerPriceOpinion there were "delays in the past", there was a host of reasons for delayed payments.
We do pay agents, we are current with our agent pay. I set up the new process to be sure that any payment delay or issues can be tracked and managed to ensure that our vendor agents get paid, I get copies of all inquiries to VendorAccounts@brokerpriceopinion.com in order to be sure they are handled in a timely and professional manner. I am opening up the communications and being sure that BrokerPriceOpinion.com employees respond, by tracking the inquiries, when an e-mail is sent it is entered into an automated tracking system, so all inquiries are handled in a timely manner and do not fall between the cracks.
If anyone has an issue currently or from the past they only need to send an e-mail to VendorAccounts@brokerpriceopinion.com and feel free to copy me, so we can resolve your concerns.
We are a good company, with great caring employees, business ethics is very large part of my own personal philosophy of business.
The one item you can count on in life is change, this company has changed, a strong positive change.
