On January 8, 2008, Madelyn Wattigney of Creative Madhouse contracted me to "finesse" a press release. On January 23, 2008, after "it took a while to get the changes back from the client," she requested revisions on the rewritten press release. Once I turned in those revisions, I never heard from her again.
In the four months since then, repeated emails and two phone calls to her have gone unanswered. My invoice is now 120+ days old.
