You sue them. There's really not much else to be done.

  • Thank you for your valuable Answer But how i wil sue them as there is no legal contract between us – Shehnaz Ameer Nov 3 at 16:59
  • No emails? no texts? No instant messages? Nothing in writing whatsoever? No way to prove you created the artwork? If that's true, then you learn from the experience and move on. There's nothing you can do. – Scott Nov 3 at 17:00
  • No, i have his chat where i get his requirements but is this enough to take him to court? – Shehnaz Ameer Nov 3 at 17:05
  • Location matters. In the US, sometimes any written evidence that he requested work and that you completed that work may be favorable to a court judgement. At times even verbal agreements may be enough for small claims court with some evidence to back things up. I am not a lawyer. and I am not giving any legal advice other than to point out if you want to get paid, you have to prove you are owed. You may wish to speak to an attorney. I'm uncertain what you anticipate anyone here posting. There's no "magic" button to force a client to be suddenly honest and forthright with payment. – Scott Nov 3 at 17:12
