Poison clients

So last year I did a few designs for a client who apparently was working on some short low budget movies.He paid me for the first 4-5 designs, but the last 3 designs he stoled from me. He was paying me through PayPal, but the last designs he paid me under another PayPal account ( which should have been a red flag to me).Later on, the payment was reversed as the account holder apparently belonged to his angered ex-girlfriend.
The job ended up being a lost and a bitter lesson.Now I have received this email...

To:you DetailsHi im sorry it has taken me long to respond just had alot going on i knowosha said u take 35 upfront and show the final afterwards so you can start on the one for mingo world first i get paid every two weeks so right after that finishes i want the next one and i will try to call you also thank u 

I am posting this as a warning for any young artist/designer out there when dealing with online clients.There will be people out there who want something for nothing and have no respect for your business.Cash up front or money orders will be the safest way when dealing with clients in my opinion.  Paypal will always give the customer the right of way over the seller, so be careful of who you are dealing with.
