Guys, there’s a certain UK lady whom I’ve now come to admit amenifanyia ile kitu.
I’ve been working remotely for the past one year offering web development and related services. In April last year, I met this London-based lady who was looking for a web dev and a VA. I offered to do both for an hourly rate that wasn’t so bad (at least for a newbie). For the first 2 or 3 months, she made payments without a fuss, albeit late by a few weeks every time (red flag as payments we’d agreed payments should have been done fortnightly). Out of naivety (in retrospect), I carried on working for 3 months without a single payment.
7 months down the line, I’m having it rough as this blindsided me and I haven’t been able to regain my footing financially. The really painful part is that they’ve only ever responded once, towards the end of September last year. I haven’t been incessantly messaging her - I’ve only reached out thrice since Sept asking fro payment.
The interesting thing is that I still have access to her emails and other private stuff (I was a VA remember). From her calendar, contacts, nudes, CCs, passports, socials and even an entire spreadsheet of literally her passwords. I didn’t want to do her dirty but she’s forced my hand. I won’t sleep hungry yet someone owes me more that $1500 and I know for a fact they’re withholding it.
How do I get this lady to pay me before niingie breached.vc?
I might just have to do this but I don’t wish to spook her into revoking access to all the stuff I currently have access to. She might change passwords and whatnot. I want to hit and hit her hard kama nimeondokea if it gets there.
inashtua sana vile watu hapa wanatumia mbinu chafu kama kutumia usiri wa mtu kulipwa ama kuelekezana zaidi. Tutafute maadili vijana. ntasema tena mambo ni kangaja, huenda yakaja utakapojipata umefanyiwa tendo kama hilo ama mtu umjuaye vizuri.
Hii dunia ya saa hii bado watu watakua na threatened na nudes? For all I know the western world believes such kind of things is a new empowerment front for women. Anyway, weigh your choices and do what you believe itakupea doo zako. Hapa nayo ulikua tu kushare ndo you get that stress off your chest.
Nikikwambia the millions I have been washed through remote work utashangaa. It’s a risk but worth it in the long run. Sasa character development umepata ni ya asking for initial down payment for “logistics” as I always tell them.
Don’t expose her private details, it may work against you. She may bad mouth you and mess any potential contracts. Accept and move on. Write her one last email of complain and leave her. When you encounter a potential client in her network she might not be able to short circuit you. Get contacts from her email of potential clients and start pitching chini ya maji.
