If you have signed any contract with him/her, you can file Writ to ask him to pay any damages/loss you incurred.

Thanks for reply.

My concern now is we didn't sign any contract, we only have DO. To file writ we must go thru by lawyer?

thanks again

Yes, filing writ means you need to engage lawyer and the lawyer will attend the case for you. As long as there is sufficient papers/documents to prove that they have cause you loss/damage, you may proceed to file the Writ.

If the customer has run away, you need to know that hiring a lawyer, filing a writ ( summons ) and winning the case and getting a judgment is the easy part.

Collecting any money after you win is the hard part.
Most likely you will get nothing but pay a lot to the lawyers.

Once you obtained the judgment, you can alert CTOS and put the person/company's name in the system.

Since your customer ran away, just file a civil suit and claim any amount you like e.g. $5M - $10M or whatever you like.

Your customer sure don't care your lawsuit and hence you'll get "JUDGEMENT IN DEFAULT".

This is how the system work brother, use it to your advantage. Cheers.
