    I never had such experience in my entire career I have worked on project so damn hard and submitted all psd (that was my mistake) and never paid back for my hard work.... If you have free time and want to work for free meet them they love free work :)

    @Axel Bouaziz Yup they will gonna use the design as he got the psd and after I asked for the remaining payment he told me you not replied me for few days so I have hired someone and now we dont need you.. And also stopped replying to me and blocked me from chat... It was just one small banner image that was not replaced...

    @Paresh Khatri ::::✈ They don't have the right to use your work until both signed a use & reproduction rights letter.

    If budget is important, don't hesitate to call a collection service or to hire a lawyer ;)

    @Axel Bouaziz Thanks man your words means a lot.. I think you are right they dont have any rights unless and until I submit him the rights of the design which I have never transfered... I really cant take any legal actions as I am india so being freelancer its hard for us.. But we can atleast try to help our fellow designers to beware of such clients :)

    Scumbags...

    A lesson I also learned, it's a harsh one, but one most freelancers learn early on, JPEG's are all a client gets now until their cash is in my account.

    @Paresh Khatri ::::✈ Effectively, so they don't have rights and they use it total illegality.

    Our process is quite simple Paresh :
    1. We filter (a lot) potential clients ;
    2. We ask for a deposit of 50% for projects

    Thanks for share @Paresh Khatri ::::✈ i would suggest to lock/merge layer and delete history...when you received 100% payment, honestly they have right to get PSD file with open layers.

    @Paresh Khatri ::::✈ Write a blog post about what happened & give away your PSD files for free. This is what will happen -

    1. Fellow designers will learn to avoid this mistake & also avoid working from them. Social media will catch up.
    2. Dozens (if not hundreds) of sites will crop up with the same design, which would stop them from using it as their corporate website.
    3. You'll turn a setback into a social good. Nothing beats the feeling of getting 'Thank you's from strangers. :)

    @Paresh Khatri ::::✈ I'm so sorry for what happened to you. I really know how badly it can hurt when people misuse us. Being a freelancer from India is hard, especially when it comes to legal support.

    So just say to urself - Lesson learnt!

    Never send PSD's before the final payment! Always send the "Not-so-Small-or-Big" jpgs, Make them sign a legal document/contract before even starting the project.

    I had one bad experience (Got replaced without any notice & never got paid for the work that was already done & given!) Now I can tell the difference between a genuine client from the clients like Shofur.com. Its all about learning from your mistakes.

    Spread this shot even further!!
