    What would you do if a client refuses to pay up after you have delivered your product?

    i will report the incident to the police after realizing that the client really does not want to pay.

    You could first try communicating with your client to find out why he or she has refused to pay. Maybe there was a problem with the product. If not. Then what is the problem? Does the client have the money? Can a deal be worked out to pay the money based on an agreement that you can live with? After exhausting all means of getting paid for your product, then outside help may be needed. Legal means are sometimes available to help you.
    I would avoid a situation that could result in a physical confrontation (a fight) that could end up in violence. People get killed over money issues all the time. We don't people hurt or killed, if we can help it. Take care. May peace follow you.

    If its a freelance job done online I would learn from my mistakes and I've been in your shoes a few months back. I only accept work when the client funds escrow now. I'm sorry if this isn't the kind of work your doing but I'm just sharing my mistake.

    All you could do is file a complaint in a court if you have proof and stuff or just learn from your mistakes.

    There is only one thing to do. Just as Felixedet2000 said.  If you can't get the client to peacefully return the goods call the police and report a, Theft by Deception, or if the, now X, client refuse to pay for your services; then its a civil matter for the courts. and you seek redress through, Litigation & Civil Procedure . 

    Actions of any other kind, especially violence, may result in your being, arrested, prosecuted and possibly imprisoned.

    Bottom line______________don't take matters into your on hands.

    I've found that filing in small claims court that the issue usually comes to a quick settlement, this is after contacting a number of times trying to work out the problem.

    Take the product back and try to sell it to someone else. If they claim it was broken, then fix it. If they want a replacement, send them one. If they want their money back, give it to them.

    First I would try to find out why they did not pay. Maybe they were unhappy with the service/product. If I could correct the problem I would. If there was no problem and they just refuse to pay I would call the police and request assistance in the matter.

    Do you have a contract with the client? If yes, then it will be easy to settle this matter. If not then you can opt to retrieve back your product.

    It will be wise to find out the reason why your client is not paying first. With the knowledge of why then you can decide what sort of decision to be made.
