So, the whole reason I was even on Livejournal today was because I was trying to find some info on my last couple months at Comtel.  They recently filed for Bankruptcy and I was talking to a lawyer about what my options were for trying to get some of the money they owe me.  The lawyer got me a "Proof of Claim" form to fill out with exactly how much I think they owe me and according to this paper, Wages and commission are considered a Priority Entitlement.  Which sounds exciting....  I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much, but man, it sure would be awesome if I could get the money they owe me!

As I've been going through everything, I was really impressed with myself and how organized I was at the very end.  Nothing like my total lack of organization now :-p  

I emailed myself copies of our schedules, commissions, company emails, anything with exact numbers of sales and hours for the months we hadn't been paid for.  The only thing I'm missing is a copy of our commission structure which I'm hoping I still have around the house.  So far, I've calculated that they owe me $2832 just in hourly wages!  And a LOW estimate of my commissions is $2490.  So I've already totaled up $5322 owed.  Just wait till I find our commission sheet.  That number will go up another couple hundred, I'm sure.

So, everyone cross your fingers.  It's been exactly a year since Comtel took our money and ran.  Here's hoping I can get some of it back!!

So what exactly happened to Comtel? well, they just stopped paying us. so we stopped going to work. rumour has it that the owner fled the country cause he was involved in some very very bad shit in other areas. and when his money source (comtel) was no longer available, he had some nasty people looking for him! apparently he owes Verizon over a billion dollars from equipment purchases.

That's an ijpressive amount of money owed to you. - well, they owed us hourly wages for March and April and commissions from Jan - April. they really took us for all we were worth!

me too! i'm hoping that whatever money was acquired from selling off Comtel's stores (computers, leftover phones, etc) that there's a little left for us!

I was just thinking about that this weekend. Mom asked what you were up to and why you'd quit Comtel, and all I could remember was badness and no paychecks. Kudos and rock on!

lol. i miss your mom :)
technically, we didn't necessarily "quit" comtel. we just stopped going to work after they stopped paying us!

Mom was ready to do battle on Comtel, I think.
