Deadbeat Customer

Recommended Posts

Since there is no paperwork [contract] showing the service agreement between u and the said customer, u have no legal recourse whatsoever! U will most probably lose if you take him to small claims court and you will lose sueing that person in anyway.

How I understand it, is that the computer and all the necessary parts were already paid by the said customer. My guess is that the computer is already up and running with the latest hardware and that it is still in your posession. The problem comes with that said customer paying for labor.

Well, if I were you, I would basically use the computer as my own, considering that it's new. If you need some money, try to sell the computer or the parts on eBay and make some money that way! :bah:

Moral of the story: Always get anything and everything in writing with signatures when doing any kind of dealings that includes money!

you really think they would take a 16 year old seriously in court? But he only owes me 50$ and i wouldn't go through the hassle. (50$ is still a lot for someone who doesnt have a job tho :P )

uhmmm ... with no paperwork, you really do not have a case to go with. If you want to get revenge you could sell his information for cash online ... Shady, but hey, he deserves it. You screw him over, and get cash for it.

First of all, an oral agreement IS a legal binding contract, despite what you all think. The problem is proving it. Without witnesses, or a recorded conversation your chances of prooving it is slim. If he paid you for the parts with a credit card or personal check, it would be slightly easier, but still, without anything mentioning labor, it'd be hard.

If you exchanged emails, and there was the mention of paying for labor, that would really help. But like h20 said, if the computer is still in your possession, then just keep it. All the computer would have cost you is labor, which is a pretty good price :) However, seeing as you are making a big deal about this labor cost, I'm assuming you already handed over the finished computer, and if that's the case, well then you were pretty stupid for not demanding the money first. So your loss.

From what it sounds like the guy already has the computer. How else is he able to block him on AIM. Plus if he still had the computer, I'm pretty sure the guy would try get it from him.

i gotta agree with claymeow the oral contract is binding but i if i was u i'd bill him and keep the computer, until he did anything about it. then i would buy a bunch of gay porno with his credit card and have it sent to him to show him a lesson, lol. Edited by Sly_C
