Like other people have said, get payment up front. Don't let them pressure you into starting work until you receive the money.

I'm sorry dear, that sounds really horrible.

I'm always afraid of people doing that to me, so I tend to ask for payment first now and days. ;-;
Sorry that had to happen though, people change their minds and it makes it hard on others.

I don't think it's very kind for everyone in the forum to say that you're foolish--that doesn't help anything at all. Just give advice on how to not have this mistake next time.
But doing the half payment in the beginning, and half payment in the end is a good idea too.

Don't start work until the payment is in your account! :iconepicfacehoofplz:

yeah, typically that's one of the rules I keep
but I didn't want to come off as aggressive, well now I know why aggression is necessary

Indeed. There's a difference between "coming off as aggressive" and there's "not letting people walk all over you."

It's not about aggression, it's about mutual assurance. They want to know that they'll get what they pay for, you want to know that you'll get paid for your work. :shrug:
