I really did not want to do this but I have no choice. You may not know but I have been an independent consultant for two years (not in the IT industry). In 2003 and early 2004 I did a lot of work for a client who has not paid me. This client owes me tens of thousands of dollars and I have been working with him to get paid. This situation has put me in a tenable financial position for the past few months but after getting an agreement to get paid this week I thought we would be able to pull out of this hole. Yesterday I was informed through his attorney he couldn’t / wouldn’t pay me and I would have to sue him to get the compensation I am owed for work done on his client’s behalf. This has left me in an extremely bad situation especially at this time of year. I was so certain I would finally get paid by this company that this news has hit me in the gut.
After a sleepless night considering my options I am asking readers who enjoy what I do here (at my own expense) if you can please contribute something. If you can contribute anything at all it will help. You can make a donation through the PayPal button at the upper right of any page on the site. Thank you.
