Looking for some advice from the TFF collective. A few years ago I did some work for a guy but I still haven’t been paid. He is based in one of the southern counties of England, so I drove a round trip of over 1000 miles, so fuel and wear on my vehicle and the wearing parts of my tools that I used during my time there. Also the living expenses are higher living away from home. During the 3 weeks I had a number of compliments from him and his customers about the high standard of my work. When the work was completed, we checked the work sheets to make sure that both his and mine balanced. He wrote a cheque for the agreed amount and handed it over with an handshake, another compliment about my work and an offer of work the following year. I drove home and banked the cheque on Monday morning, by Thursday is back in the mail with a red stamp saying PAYMENT STOPPED. I tried numerous times to phone and text him but no reply. What do I do?
