    How do you get your money from someone who owes it to you but refuses to give?

    How do you get your money from a publisher you have worked for if he refuses to take your calls or refuses to respond to your emails and further you did not enter into agreement prior to the job?

    have a lawyer contact them.  If you produced work, which they have used then there is likely an agreement in place even though you did not sign one.  Save your emails, etc.

    As to the details you provided you can use either of the two options below.
    1. Leave it. That is my way of getting out of trouble fast. Leave it, forget about it, move on. Losing money is not that bad if you get your mind focused in the most important things of life. There are many, peace and calm being the most (for me)

    2. Legal battels. Even if you don't have an agreement signed before the job, it doesn't mean you don't have any evidence you did the job. Lawyers are made for this. Get one and wait for the happy ending....hey this is in no way a legal advice OK?

    most likely if you get a lawyer involved, the guy will pay you the money in the belief that it's not worth his time and trouble. If it's not that much money though, you might be better off just leaving it and knowing better next time to have an agreed upon contract.

    Otherwise if you do get a lawyer involved, and if you have email correspondences going back and forth it will be easy to prove that you worked for him and had an agreed upon price and all that in which case he is liable to pay you.

    Remember, unless you take him to court though you can't charge him for the lawyer fees, so make sure it's really worth it, lawyers can be pretty expensive.

    show up at his or her office and demand your money. if that doesn't work, give them a shot in the gut and explain the next time, that will feel like a loving kiss. i know, violence doesn't solve anything people say but i promise, people lie.
