I have an agreement where I was supposed to be paid for an equity buyout in January. A collection letter was sent out saying the client has xx days to pay. So, everything is in process.
However, this is keeping me awake at night and I am getting very angry. Client had two years to pay and is ghosting me. We went to school together and I helped as a way of supporting a new business. To have so many mutual friends online and in real life is difficult for me to process as this goes on. What’s keeping me from friending his mom and dad on facebook, for example, and saying “your son is a deadbeat, can you tell him to pay his bills? THANKS”) At the very least leaving a negative review on the business page? I’m just really irritated and seeing this as an interest-free loan for him. Court costs will cut further into my payments. Is there anything else I can be doing?
edit: I have a contract and a lawyer. My question is about how to deal with it mentally. He argues that the business was dissolved and the company owes me nothing. The company is still together and operating.
