I have an unpaid signed contract from last year that still bothers me a bit.
I recently found out that this person has won a contest to pitch the product on TV. As I understand, financially, the client was previously unable to pay (and probably has horrible credit, so that if I sued in court, he wouldn't mind having his permanent record messed up by legal unable to pay).
- Should I inform the contest that he has an unpaid contract?
- Or, should I wait until after he actually seems like he can pay? I assume that this TV show will at least get this product some customers so he can pay his bills.
Just sent him this email:
Congrats on winning the [big TV pitch contest name].
Now that you're a rich gazillionaire, I hope that you can pay for the app I built for you way back then. I am attaching the invoice again for your convenience.
