I won't go into the whole long story, but here's the gist of it: I worked with a person to create a website on beahlf of another company that this person worked for. I did not create a signed contract (I know, I know...) and this person talked me into giving them the site before I was paid (I know, I know...). And of course this once trustworthy person has been dodging me and giving me the "checks in the mail" story for months. Since that time the site has gone up. I have also contacted the company for who the site is for, and they are ignoring me.

Do I have any other avenues to persue this? Can I contact the webhost and ask that they take the site down? Something? I may have to end up eating it and learning a lessson, but I at least don't want them using the site I made.

I used to collect commercial debts- big ones up to 250 K the most effective method I found was to call them at home early in the morning before they set off to work.

Else Id trace their family members and ask them to pass a message on - Id lost their sons/brother/sisters number etc.

Id ruin their weekend by sending duplicate debt collecting letters to their home on a Friday for delivery on Saturday.

Another favorite - tell them you can collect the cheque or youll send someone around to collect cheque they dont want this to happen as the staff will get to learn of the problems.

Works a treat.

I would be careful of this one. I'm not sure if it's just the state of Michigan or it's a US law, but you cannot discuss accounts with anyone other than the debtor. Sure it's ok to leave a message, but just leave a message and that is it. Don't get into details on WHY or WHAT.
