A couple months ago, I did a website designed around a product a client of mine was pitching. He needed it to look good and to be done quickly. Because of the rush, he agreed to a higher rate.
After finishing, I contact my client to get my payment. He says he had a bank problem and would pay me next Monday.
Monday comes by, and new excuses appear too.
Friday comes and nothing. Finally, after some long-winded back and forth, he agrees to pay me on Monday.
Over the weekend, I see a status update from my client on Facebook: “NEW IPHONE!!!”
Monday comes and I ask about my money. When he says he doesn’t have any, I ask about his new phone. Now he’s blocked me and I still haven’t been paid.
