Not doing a job with a down payment

I'm sorry to hear you've had some trouble on this project. Certainly, taking a down payment and failing to ever proceed with work is against the law. Once payment is made pursuant to the contract, the work should be undertaken as set out in the agreement. If it isn't, a contractor could certainly face liability. However, without knowing more information about the circumstances or the agreement at hand, it's hard to provide additional insight here.

If a contractor has taken a down payment and has never shown up to provide the work that was contracted, demanding that the contractor either perform as contracted or that they return the deposit is likely a good start. Further, if talking it out isn't fruitful, demanding the return of payment through a more official demand letter, potentially written by an attorney, may help recover payment. Finally, making an official claim for payment in small claims court and making a complaint to Michigan's Licensing and Regulatory Affairs department might be helpful. If the contractor is licensed, making a claim against their license bond could do the trick, too.

 Many people have expressed interest in this special game. In poppy playtime, you
need to explore the Playtime toy factory. mystery to investigate what happened
to the missing employee. Lots of revenge toys are waiting for you. Do whatever
you can to survive and try not to get caught.

On the contrary, I heard stories that people promised a good salary. When a person did his job, the employer refused to pay the money.

Situations are different, in fact. But in any case, this is something that I'd like to avoid. I work as a nanny, so I know that there are unscrupulous employers. I'm currently looking for a new job and I've found some good babysitting jobs on https://layboard.in/ . Maybe I'll get lucky and find a new job pretty quickly.
