i was contacted by a mutual friend about this guy that needed a producer that could be willing to listen to the cleints musc and see about a possible record deal. i said fine. so it all started the nightmare. day one he contacts me 2 times i told him he had some good clients, day 2: he contacts me I asked what he needed he said nothing, told him I am very busy, day 3 the s**t hits the fan: not only he wants me to pay $10,000.00 that was never agreed to but he wants the cleints to pay $3,000.00 and that was never in his terms and condidition, he is uset that I wont give him my trade secrets, he is upset that I am busy and now he thinks I am a scam for having a PBX system but he calls it 4 answering machines. here is the aucital chat transcript from Yahoo messanger:
