I'd "out him" on the board so we can all shame him into submission.

If you haven't already done so, set up a Paypal account. Then send him an email with your requesting a payment to your Paypal within 24 hours. Notify him that if he has not complied you will let everyone you know not to do business with him. If that happens at least post it hear so your fellow OSOers don't get taken.

If it's been more than a week, then the check is NOT in the mail.
1 phone call, cool!
2 phone calls, is one too many.
3 phone calls, you have a problem.

Treat him the way you would want to be treated if the roles were reversed - and keep us informed!

that is why no names are mentioned. i know people can be distracted with work and projects and things get forgotten . but the last call i made he said "do you think i am trying to stiff you ? " so lets give this a try.

If he clearly stated what you said above, I would not go and set a up a paypal account etc. My personal feeling is, after ample time and attempts to get paid have been exhausted, tell us who he is and what happened. I have done this as have others. This is one of the MANY hundreds of benefits of OSO. Not only may it benefit you, but it will put all of us on the aware.

Best of luck for a speedy resolution.
