    Man what a sad story, but this seems familiar somehow. I often get inquiries from people that not even have a business mail address or website, but claim themselves a huge start up blablabla. Never ever start your work until you received 25-50 % down payment. If the client is not willing to pay it.... he won´t properly pay the money anyway so you at least do not loose time.

    yeah I learned that lesson the hard way too. Luckily it was only on a 3 hours job. It is hard to be confronted with the shameless ways of others.

    @Mateusz Dembek This happen to me to. These days I always ask for an advanced payment of at least 50%, so I guess I lose 8 of 10 possible clients but, than again, better to be safe than sorry. Good luck mate.

    @Axel Herrmann I agree. Its a red flag when payment is an issue from the start. D

    @Marcel Deelen I'm sorry because of you. As you can see everyone has to go through it. Even me. Although today I thought I is not going to happen.
    @Alex Lupse sorry to hear that and thanks, from now on I will take an advanced payment from new customers.

    Sorry to read that story. You can post the free psd, not that this will return your week of work but it's the least they deserve.

    Another thing that I really hate from the bottom of my heart: These guys who contact you and ask for a quote and do not even answer after they received it. This also is so unprofessional and disgusting... Even if they pick another designer they at least could leave you a note about that...
