Red Quanta

As we all know, they are no longer MSPA, so I am not sure, what support, if any we will get (or would have received). Has anyone been in communication with the client? As far as I can recall, there was no ICA. Perhaps such a large client would be receptive to our issues?

I'M SICK AND TIRED OF PLAYING GAMES-YOU DID NOT MAKE A PAYMENT ON MARCH 5 AS PROMISED AND STATED. I AM ON THE PHONE RIGHT NOW ON HOLD TO SPEAK TO AN EXECUTIVE AT XXXXXX WHO IS UNDER LARRY PAGE. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH-PAY ME!

I JUST SPOKE TO A MEMBER OF THE EXECUTIVE STAFF HE GAVE ME HIS EMAIL ADDRESS AND ASKED ME TO SEND LINKS TO THE MYSTERY SHOPPERS FORUMS WHERE THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF RECENT COMPLAINTS ABOUT SLOW AND NO PAYMENT BY RED QUANTA TO SHOPPERS-ELEVATORS.

HE ALSO ASKED ME TO SEND A COPY OF THE EMAIL I RECEIVED ORIGINALLY, WHICH HAS THE XXXXXX LINK YOU SENT TO THE XXXXXX EMAIL ACCOUNT I WAS ASKED TO CREATE WHEN I STARTED DOING THESE ASSIGNMENTS IN OCTOBER (HTTPS://GOO.GL/Gll75V).

I'M ALSO SENDING HIM A COPY OF YOUR ANDROID APP LINK (FOR RED QUANTA) WHICH HAS OVER 1,000 SHOPPERS WHO HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT SLOW REIMBURSEMENTS (IN OTHER WORDS YOU CONVINCED SHOPPERS TO EXPEND THEIR OWN MONEY, THEN YOU GET PAID BY XXXXXX, YOUR CLIENT, THEN FLOATED YOUR COMPANY BY USING THEIR REIMBURSEMENTS WHICH BELONG TO SHOPPERS, THIS IS FRAUD). NOW YOUR GAME IS CATCHING UP TO YOU; WHAT YOUR DOING IS LIKE A "PONZI" SCHEME BECAUSE YOU ARE SPENDING MONEY THAT DOES NOT BELONG TO YOU-IT BELONG TO THE SHOPPERS.

THEN ON TOP IF THAT YOU CONSTANTLY LIE ABOUT YOUR REASONS FOR PAYING LATE-YOU KEEP LYING TO SHOPPERS TO GET MORE OF THEM TO DO THE JOBS AND THEN DO THE SAME TO THE NEW PEOPLE YOU FIND TO DO THE SHOPS. I WAS PAID WHEN I WAS COMPLETING ASSIGNMENTS-BUT HAVE RECEIVED NOTHING, BUT EXCUSES AND LIES SINCE I FINALLY STOPPED SHOPPING.

THE XXXXXX EXECUTIVE IS GOING TO DO HIS OWN RESEARCH AND HAS PROMISED ME THAT HE WILL TAKE ACTION TO STOP BLATANT MISMANAGEMENT, IF WHAT I HAVE TOLD HIM PROVES TO BE TRUE. WHICH IT WILL.

IN THE MEAN TIME YOU BETTER PAY ME-BECAUSE I'M SICK AND TIRED OF YOUR LIES AND THE NEXT THING THAT WELL HAPPEN IS I WILL GO TO SOME OF MY FRIENDS AT THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND ASK THEM TO START A FEDERAL FRAUD CASE AGAINST YOU AND THE OWNERS OF RED QUANTA.

IF YOU WANT A COPY OF THE FEDERAL LAW'S YOU HAVE VIOLATED I'LL BE HAPPY TO SEND YOU A LINK. I HAVE OVER A 1,000 NAMES I CAN SUPPLY TO FEDERAL AGENTS FROM JUST YOUR APP ALONE. YOU'VE DONE THIS KIND OF THING SINCE YOUR COMPANY STARTED (ABOUT 5 TO 8 YEARS). THE FEDERAL CRIME YOU ARE COMMITTING IS INTERNATIONAL RACKETEERING. YOU ARE NOT DOING THIS BECAUSE OF "GROWING PAINS". IT IS DONE BECAUSE YOU ARE LIVING "HIGH ON THE HOG" WITH MONEY THAT DOES NOT BELONG TO YOU AND THAT IS AN INTERNATIONAL CRIME. BEING BASED IN INDIA WILL NOT STOP THE HANDS OF THE UNITED STATES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IF YOU GET IN THEIR "CROSS-HAIRS", I CAN ASSURE YOU OF THAT. I'VE WORKED ON OVER 200 FEDERAL CRIMINAL CASES AS A FORENSIC ACCOUNTANT, SO I KNOW HOW IT WORKS.

STOP LYING AND PAY ME NOW AND PAY ALL THE MONEY YOU OWE ME-I'M DONE PLAYING YOU UNETHICAL GAMES.

XXXXXXXXX XXX
Just to clarify-they (Red Quanta) are no longer MSPA USA-they are probably still affiliated with MSPA ASIA because their corporate headquarters are in Mumbai, India. So write to MSPA ASIA to complain just in case they have not yet been terminated from it. At this point it is highly likely we will not be paid, or it will take many months if they do not survive being terminated. They need to be stopped, as they are bad for the industry!!!!!
Here is the emails I just sent:

Hello All,

This is getting ridiculous. Pay me my money owed. I have talked to a few others who are owed money and we are all quite upset. I am not being unreasonable..

I have retained the services of a law firm; Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP (https://www.akingump.com/en/)

If payment is not made or movement is not shown, we will begin to bring criminal fraud charges against everyone of you individually. While those in India, might feel safe and free from prosecution, you can be rest assured that any attempt to enter the United States will be forever barred.

I will also file civil complaints against all of you. Once again, those in India might be free from prosecution, but visiting the United States will once again be forever barred.

Those in the United States will have very serious problems. As if I can get enough people to join this suit, this will very easily become felony charges. Judging from others, I will have no problem getting enough people to from a coaltion. Meeting the felony threshold will be no problem..

Also just so we are clear, I intend to file paper work on everyone on this email chain. Also everyone listed here [www.redquanta.com]

So please save us all the hassle and just pay what is owed.
I did two shops in December 2018 for them and now it is March 10 and still have not seen any payment. They promised me payment by February 10 and it never happened. They are very disorganized, have no support, the 800 number is never answered and voice mails never returned. The telephone numbers of the project managers are either busy or go to voice mail and no return calls are ever received. I promised Red Quanta that I would warn fellow shoppers about their poor business practices in this forum. I will not work for them again. Thank God I only lost 30 dollars and nothing more. BEWARE OF RED QUANTA!!!
I say we get a hold of the Client and tell them what's goin on What say fellow shoppers??? Oh I guess it is against ICA. WHAT ICA the idiots aren't paying us!!!!! They have already broken the contract smiling smiley

I have no skin in this situation but maybe a TV station or newspaper would be interested in investigating and reporting in this.
@raygine I was told the 15th, so this Friday. Take that with a grain of salt, but after pushing and pushing, I was able to gather that date. I've waited this long, I can wait five more days.

I did not trust these people from the get-go. Glad I have that sixth sense of who is bad and who is good.

@SoCalMama just curious, how do you associate Abner with Abby?

She has a good memory. Abner p registered and posted one time, on January 21, to the Red Quanta thread. Abner p came back and deleted the text of the post, so only those who remember what was disclosed and posted would know that Abner p is Abby. Abner p has not posted again but continues to log in periodically.

Makes sense. I just wish they would get with the program so we can forget all this (after we get our pay)
Well, it looks like Carrie is up to her old games. I received an echeck via PayPal from her on 03/03. As it has not cleared yet I checked with PayPal and was told that there are NO FUNDS in that account available. In other words, she wrote a fraudulent check. I guess serving time on one fraud charge just wasn’t enough fun for her.

I let her know that I am going to be at the courthouse serving jury duty on the 20th. If I am not paid by then I will be filing a complaint against her. I guess only time will tell if she wants to visit some of her pals in prison.
Dear Lord..I hope none of you all are still doing any shops for this outfit or for Carrie.

@loca4gato I could be wrong, but my understanding of a Paypal eCheck is that they "pay" you from their account, Paypal then transfers the funds from an actual bank into the sender's Paypal account. Once that clears, it's sent to you. That may be why Paypal stated that there were no funds in their account. I know I don't keep funds in my Paypal account for more than a day, if possible. Usually I transfer it out instantly.
I was paid by Carrie using E-Checks as well. It took about a week from the initial email until when the funds were deposited. I have no idea if there were funds in the account or not, but it was the only time I have been paid by a MS company via e-check instead of straight deposit. However, I did get paid for all of these shop, albeit 4-5 months after completing. Abner called me to ask if I would do more and I just laughed at him.
@willarosen were you paid just once or more than once by Carrie? if more than once, when was the most recent?
MSPA Asia-Pacific told me this is in response to me letting them know Red Quanta was terminated from MSPA-America.

"The matter is being seriously investigated and we will do what is best for the shoppers and for the Association."
The reports are simple. We gotta eat anyway, so I did my first shop last week. Took me 5 days to figure out how to enter it but I did and if I don't get paid, I found a new restaurant in town that was under our radar
What matters is the shoppers not the association. I dont understand that comment from them.

Ha ha ha. Don't believe it. What matters to them is the association. The association was formed BY and FOR mystery shopping companies. Shoppers are a dime a dozen to them. The association will do what is best for the association. When the actions toward shoppers become such a liability to the association and the other company members, the association will act. Beyond kicking the offending company out, there is little the association can or will be willing to do.
@optikdave hard to believe they're still advertising shops. Is it still Doordash or is it another provider?
I did three groups of shops in March, April and May of 2018. I got paid in June, July and August via E-Check directly from Cari, after what felt like weekly emails, with promises and apologies. I am glad that I was finally reimbursed, but it was not worth the stress of not knowing if would be paid or not. In 15 yrs of shopping, I have never encountered this much trouble to be paid.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but if a shopper doesn't get paid for these, then it can be written off taxes-wise as a business loss, right?
@shopsuey sounds like a logistical nightmare to report... worth a try, I guess, depending on how deep you're in.
Just as a follow up on a my fight with Carrie Coyle / Red Quanta to get paid. After several games and tricks that Carrie tried to delay payment, it finally went through and I received what was owed.

On a very funny side note, after all of this, Carrie sent an email to Red Quanta, making sure to copy me, telling them to deactivate me so I would never be able to work for them again.

??? I think she thought this was a way to punish me???

Not having to work with Carrie or Red Quanta again? Thank you very much for that gift!
@jrich, yes I am finally all paid up. I started hounding them I believe around end of December, beginning of January, so around 2-3 months. It was a lot of work, I sent many, many emails. If you have not recovered all of your money, PM me and I will happy to share strategy. Don’t know if it will work again.
