Sand job ...ROR!

No -- this is a guy who bragged about how much money he makes as a writer, yet is reluctant to pay for me doing a monthly newsletter for him.

I suspect bullshit. We'll see, when he comes back with ANOTHER offer.

Yep. Tonight I told him to take the three (THREE!) mock up logos I made for him down, since I owned them.

Stand firm. You are worth paying. Stick to your guns!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, indeed I am, even though the correspondence has been uncomfortable. FINALLY, I had the balls to say "my time isn't cheap, and my work is worth monetary reward."

I also had designed two logos for the same sight which were, I thought, drafts until I saw him stick them up on his websites! I was SO MAD. Do you know how much an ad firm charges for this type design work? Yeah...so I let him know that the logos were mine, so sorry, unless you wanna pay. He's a writer just like me, and knows the ramifications of just "using" that without my consent.

I just hate that it ended this way. I mean, he's a self-proclaimed millionaire...right. You'd think he could throw a $50 spot at me monthly for doing all the design work and flowing of his newsletter!

That's how rich people stay rich, though - they're champion skinflints. But unless you get REALLY stroppy and firm with him, and bill him for every minute of your time - you know the drill - he'll continue to exploit your work.

Since he and I are both published writers, we BOTH know the law. To use my work like that without my nod of okay is illegal. He could've lost all credibility and been taken to court, most rickey tic. He finally backed off graciously, and is now begging people on the writer's newsletter to design a logo AND redesign the product. He wasn't even considerating a logo change until I created three new ones to show him how awful his was. lol :)

I was just reenforcing this to myself, upon receiving e-mail from an alleged "millionaire" who needs someone to (a) design his logo; and (b) flow his newsletter. I designed three logos and a mock up for his layout expecting him to offer decent compensation.

His answer? You can have 50% of my ad revenues that YOU GENERATE. WHAT? NOOOOOOOOO. HELL NO. I'm broke! I need CASH. If he's so "wealthy" he would've paid for my work. He'd already started using my logos, and I IMMEDIATELY told him to take all three down (yeah, he was using all three...unreal).

You're right...people who typically are swimming in money are the most horrific.


But I think this guy's just full of it :)

Have you dumped the India guys off your back too? If not, what's the latest on them? (Re: Articles on types of loans, or something like that.)

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
