Hi, sorry I'm new. Can you explain what a PAD is? Thanks!
Our apologies for incorrectly removing this post as Medi-Care is not the client for this project.
Medicare is not Trendsource's client, it's the healthcare PROVIDER that is the client. Medicare is offered through various providers, such as Paramount (which is not shopped by Trendsource so I am not violating any ICAs or guidelines here). I could say that Intellishop has car shops, and Trendsource has Medicare shops, and neither are violations of any ICAs or forum rules. Wrosie's post should not have been deleted.
I find TrendSource a waste of time in my area. For some reason, they have the shops I want fill up quickly here, grocery store ones mostly but occasionally an office store. When I think of whomever is doing them for such low pay, I think Bless Your Hearts. I do not have the time to go to each and every job and request a PAD to make it worthwhile to shop. I would do the grocery ones but only because I am those stores anyways. Second to None has almost identical grocery shops near me and the pay is higher and items needing to be bought cost are lower, so I come out ahead. I really just prefer to work with companies that value and price things correctly to begin with or will help you to make a route of less than desirable jobs to make a full day.
You will get nowhere with the BBB, sorry to say. They don't handle IC claims. If The Source rejected your report, you aren't getting paid.
Years ago there was a MSC who went out of business, owing many shoppers $100s (I was owed $218 and some change). It was Franchise Compliance. They used Sassie, and my shop was accepted and I received a 10 score. The MSC accepted my report and scored it, then told me that they would pay me and didn't. Several people, including myself, filed BBB claims to no avail.
