So, I got a client through Freelancer about a year and a half ago who was not willing to pay me on the site because he said he had an accountant and company process that didn't allow that, but he was willing to sign a contract online.
Since he is in the UK and I am in India, I figured that was the only way. After struggling to pay through PayPal (he said there was fraud committed on that account) and me not having a bank account in the UK, he ended up paying me on Freelancer.
Months after that, he used my services, apologized as he was traveling/facing trouble with the bank/was hospitalized (all the excuses in the book), and even now has not paid me.
The contract has a 14 day payment release clause; can I take legal action in this case? And how would I go about it?
