Like other people have said, get payment up front. Don't let them pressure you into starting work until you receive the money.
yeah, I guess that's sort of my weakness there >.<;
Yeah, Ive had similar experiences too. But make sure you dont make this mistake again ^__^
indeed x-x i'll be more aware next time, thanks!

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.
indeed ; A; i've heard stories and I tried to be smart about it
but I shouldn't have let my guard down
long story short I derped~ it's okay - at least I learnt something
I like the half payment thing too
thanks tsuka :heart: :icondragonglomp:

It's okay, we all make mistakes, but at least now you know. I'm sorry you had to go through it, but we live and learn and get better!

No payment before work?

Shame on you

For shame.
