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