Additional Notes

Complaint: Papercheck pretends it's separate from 2 businesses: Customer service misrepresents.Funshape Studios rents their garage. Papercheck (address: *** ****** *** ** ** XXXXX) tells clients that is an unrelated company. Disgruntled clients go to the other company, not knowing it is the same owner and empoloyees. Customer service tells editor applicants that Editorlive is a third-party company. They rent their garage to Funshape Studios design company. Editor biographies on are false: of the 17 editors described, fewer than 5 work there. The site claims: "Two full-time editors review each document, providing clients with a second set of eyes." In fact, part-time contract workers also do these.

Desired Settlement: I would like Papercheck to clarify that they also operate and Customer service should tell editor applicants that Editorlive is Papercheck's company. Clients who take their business from Papercheck to and vice versa should receive disclosure. False bios should be deleted from website.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/05/09) */ Mr. ********** is a former employee of Papercheck. The better business bureau is not a forum for his personal complaints against Papercheck.
