Years ago, I had a client who didn’t pay me for six months after my work with him was complete. It wasn’t a huge sum of money, but it was compensation for completed work that he, apparently, couldn’t afford to have me do in the first place. Anyway, he finally paid and we both moved on. Three months later he gave me a call asking me to serve as a character reference for him, in some personnel matter he was going through at work. REALLY?! Exactly what would I say? I politely declined, wished him no harm, and moved on again. Earlier this week, the same man called and asked me to invest in his new business venture he was trying to launch, and promised a high return on my investment.
I ask again…REALLY?!
