rafay123 Yes. By the time I finished almost the entire project he paid the first half of the project since he was also working for another client that paid him with a delay, which created another delay for my payment. I bought the story and kept on working by trust alone. When the project was finished and he and the bigger client where happy and project was approved he said: You know what? Lets start another small project because I wanna work with you for a long time, so just keep on working and I said, sure, but first let's finish with the first one and I will start the 2nd when I get paid entirely for the first one. He said "sure buddy, fair enough". Next day I was blocked on skype, facebook, he didn't answer my emails.
So from my 5 years experience working as a freelancer: USE A MEDIATION SERVICE like UpWork, Freelancer that will guarantee your payment.
Don't trust anyone on internet and especially don't send money to Nigerian princes ))
