I've been a subcontractor for National Appliance Network, a subdivision of Centurion Vision out of Boca Raton, for about a year. They've only paid in a timely fashion twice. Each other month was delayed by many weeks, and there were usually omissions/mistakes in their group payments. ALL of the repair work orders were for Samsung appliances. The past two months, they continued to promise to pay, but late. They never paid at all. On January 4th, their websites and phones vanished. This company… Continue
