T-Mobile Refuses to Pay Contractors

My company completed upwards of 200,000 dollars worth of work installing equippment for T-Mobile and they are refusing to pay the balance even though they are profiting from our work.

We were hired as subcontractors by the company Nexius, who was hired by T-Mobile. Nexius went bankrupt and now we are left with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of unpaid balances. T-Mobile strung us a long for some time before they went completely silent.

The whole process has been extremely frustrating as T-Mobile is profiting off of the work we completed as we speak and they refuse to even talk with us. They had us send over invoices, correspondence and POs and then never spoke with us again.

This has severely impacted my small business and I am currently unable to pay my bills. I know at least half a dozen other companies that are in the same boat.

Have any of you gone through this and how did you handle it/ get paid?

Sorry to hear this. Any luck getting paid by TMO since imposition of the silent treatment? If so, are you willing to share what may have worked? Thanks.

That is terrible.

We are very sorry to hear about your situation. We used to work on the carrier side of the business over 15 years ago and know how the carriers can bleed companies to death.

I am sure others will chime in.

We don't condone dangling anyone off a rooftop to get paid but we can relate to what you are going through.
