It's been a fun month. I'm coming on here mainly just to vent. During March I have had to deal with threatening letters from attorneys making false accusations, and now I have someone we contracted to do a job (she did a horrible job and basically stole $1700 from us), saying that we employed her back last November, making an unemployment claim. What she's doing is plain Fraud. I didn't even meet her until late January and she sure as heck wasn't an employee. Times are getting tough so make the government and someone else pay for it. Anyone know if her actions are criminal? If not they should be.

if you don't respond to the claim, she gets $$$$ - if she botched at job, I'd respond to the unemployment office stating that she's filing a fraudulent claim.

Did you attempt any recourse for the botched job?  Did you document it?  If not, you have no grounds to stand on.

There are plus sides to it. Working from home is sick. I'm in the same clothes I wake up in most of the time.

Unfortunately it's really not work the time or money to go after it. She wouldn't have the money anyway.

Pretty much. Only difference is I'm wearing the same pair of shorts, not pants.  ;D

Well, to stay postive about it, think of the money you're about to pay her a buying yourself a valuable business lesson.  Document, Document, Document, then Document some more...
