I’m afraid I need a bit of advice and, after scouring Google, I haven’t been able to find anything informative regarding what to do regarding this situation.
We had a contractor run off after receiving an upfront payment for some animation work we’ve been looking to commission. The individual kept ensuring us he’d do the work we had contracted him to do for over the course of about 2 months. As of recently, he went quiet entirely, and we’ve nothing to show beyond a very hastily done, extremely poor quality rig he threw together.
The contractor signed a legal contract prior to payment and receiving of any of our game assets to work with.
Though he’s certainly breached contract, I’m afraid I don’t know what to do. The amount in question is 330 USD. If I pursue legal action, would it even be worth the lawyer and court costs?
What avenue can I go down to get our money back?
