In recent months there have been several reports of people claiming to be CastingWords when hiring workers and then not paying them - particularly via ads on kijiji.ca. CastingWords only hires freelancers directly via the Castingwords Workshop, on Amazon's Mechanical Turk using requesterID A3MI6MIUNWCR7F, and ODesk (for non-English transcription) using company id 513433. Double check and write firstname.lastname@example.org if you suspect anything.
