Warning: Iliana Sutton & Aha Interpreting Solutions, LLC

I caution anyone and everyone against contracting or employing Iliana Sutton and her “company” Aha! Interpreting Solutions, LLC. My personal experience has been that she and her “company” have  serious financial and credibility problems. IIiana is as truthful as Pinocchio and as successful as poor Geppetto.

In 2019 Iliana Sutton breached her contract with me and the three other subcontractors on our project. I suspect there are dozens more of Iliana’s victims from Florida all the way to Michigan and perhaps beyond. Two of us received her first payment; two did not. When she sent our second payment, all four transfers bounced for insufficient funds as did her reattempt. We offered her the option to satisfy her obligation using a credit card which she refused. Ultimately, I identified the person responsible for her contract with the national corporation that had contracted with her. Only then did Iliana finally pay us with cashier’s checks and only because that corporation’s officer gave Iliana 7 days to do so.  Iliana never compensated us for fees and expenses resulting from her breach and bounced payments.

In 2020, Iliana emailed poorly-taken cell pics of our handwritten 1099s, and  refuses to provide us with paper copies for our records, as required by the Internal Revenue Service. We never consented to having our social security numbers blasted across the internet. Iliana’s actions in this respect were reckless and unlawful. Handwritten 1099s must be retained as hard paper copies. Her refusal to comply with IRS regulations is simply further evidence of her ineptitude and indispensability.

If you have experienced similar issues, please comment below.  You may remain anonymous, your email will not be published, and I will reply privately.

According to the Arkansas Secretary of State, “ILIANA JUDITH RIVERA MS” registered “Aha! Interpreting Solutions”  in 2014 listing addresses of “2700 PENNY LANE, ROGERS, AR 72758” and “3351 BELINDA LANE, SPRINGDALE, AR 72764.”

In 2019, Aha! Interpreting Solutions’ website listed an address of “202 S Lincoln St, Lowell, AR 72745” which is not actually her address at all but rather the street address of her local post office! Iliana’s Facebook specifies a fourth address of “p.o box 473 Lowell, Arkansas 72745” and floats an email address of “iliana@ahainterpreting.com.” Her cell phone is (479) 301-4902 and a Google search linked that number to a “40 Hour Medical Interpreter Standard and Ethic Course” (which has since been deleted) among other things.

For all her cash flow issues, Iliana somehow finds the financial resources to employ Osborne & Wilmoth (509 N College Avenue, Fayetteville, Arkansas 72701) as legal counsel.

I offer these warnings as a matter of free speech. Truth is an absolute defense to defamation which is why Iliana has not (and never will) sue any of us in court.

My experience suggests that anyone who employs Iliana Sutten or her “company” Aha! Interpreting Solutions does so at his/her own peril.
