    What should I do?

    Hi guys,

    In November, I paid a programmer who is living in a different country from I US$300 to code an application for me. We agreed to finish the entire deal in December 9th. However, some things cropped up for him so I decided to push back the date a little.

    However, till today, he has not completely finished off his script since there are a couple of major script errors. In the meantime, I am losing my potential revenue from my advertisers.

    I've sent him numerous emails this month but he has not replied since.

    My question is: Can anything be done about this? What would you do in my position?

    How did you pay him? Was it an online payment service? ( Paypal, etc )

    It may not do any good, but you can try emailing their support and reporting the user for fraud. They may have some type of system in place for these type of reports..not sure what they will do. Thats a start.

    I don't know how to recover the money but I do know you can learn from it. Make arrangments to pay half first. Things like that. There is nothing stopping the person, no matter how honest he/she seems, from taking off with all of the money and not writing anything
