PM'ing oxon to respond here - hopefully this can be easily resolved.
lol, I thought exec vips are super loaded, first time I'm seeing a broke one.
I am not supporting oxon, or am not against him either. People roll the money here to there and from there to somewhere else.Thats how business work.
So, no money at a point of time doesnt mean he is broke. What if he is going to be paid $200k tomorrow from somewhere he is working with?
Seems like he is responsive and he was not able to send you money on time. I hope it will get solved real quick as Ox is a reputed guy here.
I know for a fact that his daughter is in the hospital today having surgery so he may not be around for the day.
Have verified that he is indeed going through some really tough personal shit.
I'm reasonably confident that you will get your payment, however he may not be around in the next few days to reply here. I wont go into the nature of the whats going on with him, nor will I listen to any BS about how this is business etc etc, sometimes family comes first.
Oxon, I went through this a little over a year ago, stay strong, and best wishes to your family, its rough as hell.
If you knew what was going on you would understand, please have some patience. Its not my place to divulge personal information to put your mind at ease.
He could of had the courtesy to tell me he was having personal problems... when I'm left in the dark like this you can't expect me to react any different. And I'm hearing about this now from you for the first time.
wait it out mojo, let zen19 be the mediator
I have worked with Oxon before in the past and I can vouch for the guy.
I do understand that you are being left in dark and oxon didn't got the time to tell it to you, but I am sure there was enough reason for that.
With that being said, It would be great if you can wait for few more days before throwing any shit.
Obviously he is in a position where he has massive issues going on. Perhaps the best way around this is for you to wait it out, and potentially someone here can give you some more work to tide you over until Ox can pay? What is your skillset, I'll see what I can drum up.
i dont know oxonbeef other than by reputation on this forum but like anybody who's been a member here for a while, i know that his high rep is well deserved.
we all get embroiled in our own day-to-day money issues - whether its making it or collecting it - and most of the time we're on top of what needs to be done, but every now and then FATE comes to call and we find that we're no longer on top of our 'normal' routines and activities because we're in crisis management mode.
not to excuse whats happening in his business dealings with you, but the following thread posted by oxonbeef may help to explain why he's let things slip:
as an impartial observer, its clear to me that the dates of your communciation with oxonbeef tie in exactly with the dates that he received some difficult news about the health of his daughter.
its not my nature to get involved in other peoples lives, but in this instance, i believe its right and proper that a fuller picture is disclosed before anybody reading this thread jumps to the wrong conclusions about him as hes got enough stress in his life without people making smarmy comments about him on a thread thats got nothing to do with them ( NOT directed at the o.p. btw)
relax bro dont lose heart things will be fine sit down have a cool drink till he come back and explain the things
I wonder why OxonBeef was needing a job done, and he didn't set aside the money for payment? You should have made OxonBeef post his job work on eLance, it would have worked out much better for you.
and here we go again.....hahaha
Zen19, thank you very much for what your doing... I seriously appreciate it to extents you can not understand... I've been in such terrible shape lately its beyond belief it honestly is... so thank you to you, and everyone else who offered to pay on his behalf... its obvious he's a respected member here... but I've been seriously desperate and theres nothing i could do about it
