Writing a small check to The Coding Network might eliminate or reduce a large check to these “bounty hunters.” Their auditors may not be intimately familiar with your specialty, and their commission-only structure certainly gives them an incentive to assert that you’ve made coding errors or that your records don’t support your claims.
