I was recently hired by a well known Instructional Designer to complete work for him. I have delivered the material because the college that hired him was waiting for the work. So I develivered. He still owes me R 20 000 amd keeps on coming up with one excuse after the other, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Classic tale of having delivered, the motivation to make a payment is gone. What were the terms of the agreement with this “well known” person? Was there a signed agreement regarding the work you did? It appears that “well known” doesn’t necessarily mean trustworthy or honest. Way too many charlatans in this sector, proverbial wolves in sheep’s clothing. Always critical to retain an essential element of work delivered to keep the motivation to pay.
I suggest you advise him that payment is required within say 10 days failing which legal action will be taken and you will “Name and shame” on social media. Unfortunately you will need to get dirty on this one, no more “nice guy” approach.
