I had an oral contract with a customer who I renovated a kitchen for. I purchased all material. We also had everything in text messages. I finished the job and moved on to building a 30ft gate and installing. Had not received payment yet for either jobs. She explained she was closing some land she sold and we would then receive payment. We then agreed to renovations of an apartment complex. Where she would give half up front and the other half when done. We received 50% down almost 3 weeks had passed and still no payment for first 2 jobs nor reimbursement for material. When we asked for the our money we were told and text messaged to stop working till funds were in her hands. Finally after 4 weeks she closed on selling property never paid because she claims apartments were not completed. I have messaged of her pleading for us to plz be patient she promised to pay and also telling us to stop working till she had our money. It's been 5 weeks and still have yet to receive payment.
