    I write articles for a reputed member here. He hasn't logged into site for a month. Now, he isn't that active on Skype either. I added some content on his site by Friday. He said he would pay me by Monday. The next update said, he would do it on Tuesday since he is stuck in another country. Now its 48 hours since his last reply. He isn't replying to my messages. He had paid me $$-$$$ several times before. But those times, he was an active member in the forum. Even his Jr.VIP status has been dropped. I hardly make ends meet writing web content. I am really freaked out. Should I open a SL thread? I don't mean to say hes a scammer. But there is no way to reach him.

    Tell him you're going to make a SL thread if he doesn't resolve the payment issue.

    Then make a SL thread since he doesn't look like he wants to resolve the payment issue.

    No one said you'd get your money back. But you'd be able to stop someone else from going through the same thing you're going through with that person.

    OP, listen to yourself. Your client is paying you promptly each time. And now he is just late for a few days and you want to shitlist him? Makes sense? I know you are tight financially. But in this case I think your client deserves a longer wait before you decide on any action. You should not worry yourself too much over this.

    I agree $100 isn't huge cash, but I really need it now.

    I thought SL would help reaching him or someone else knowing him can reach him. Yeah prolly I should drop the idea of SL and think or a more mature way.

    Who is it? Give him a few days, if he still doesn't reply tell him you'll have to SL him within a day or two.

    Am I allowed to mention username? I am not shaming him or anything. Just looking for ways to reach him.

    I wouldn't. You can maybe PM Conor since he's curious about it but you don't want this turning into a shitstorm. That's not what this is for. This is just to give you advice because you asked for it.

    No, you do not want to do that. Typically if a person opens a SL thread we reach out to the "offender" to see if it can be resolved without it going public as that is usually best.

    Making things public when they can be cleaned up behind closed doors is not usually the best way to go.

    If you want to open a SL, you can, and just make sure you have all the necessary proof of the deal as well, in this case, some explanation as to how he/she has always paid you in a timely manner.

    But before you can open one you have to give him or her 72 hours notice to resolve it.

    Remember do not use threatening tones with your customer since this is the first time your client is doing this. You have to give the benefit of the doubt that this could be a genuine case of delay. No one likes to be threaten especially if he is a real customer who have been paying you promptly in the past for many dealings.

    These are some of the issues that we go through in our daily hutsles. I always feel very bad when someone has given his best in working for you and once he is done, you just disappear. There was a time when acertain guy just walked away with my $500 after spending the whole day working for him. Try to use escrow payment method to secure payments.
