you know. you should just head down to his company and demand payment no pt doing it indirectly. go there bang table and if it doesn't work tell them you are getting singtel "their bosses" involved and if really don't work, just write to singtel and tell them the photos used are yours and they are not allowed to post them and let singtel deal with the them!
you just need to be firm when dealing with them. draft a bnw contact indicating when they are suppose to pay up and ask them to sign. get a lawyer or haha try go NUS get a law student to draft one for you should be enough.
gd luck bro!! sucky experience man!!
$960 or $9.60 money is money, simple as that. I hope you kept a copy of the invoice to prove that you did serve him and you are commissioned by the bugger. Shouldnt be hard to prove the pics is yours lah even if u deleted them and or no exif. 32hawker centers with dunno how many stalls and not one of them will remember your face meh?
think of it as you have 2560 witnesses lah. i sincerely hope they pay you eventually. take it as far as you have to, maybe even to TNP if ur up for it
1, Letter of demand can be written by you. It's just an official letter telling the other party to pay up. You don't need a lawyer to write it.
2. I'm not sure where you checked, but I checked acra.
Any business should be registered there. If they're not, then they're in trouble for not following the Companies Act.
3. No you don't need their consent to go SCT. You just need to show that you tried getting money, but he refuses to pay. (i.e. calls, letter of demand, etc). If sued, they don't turn up to defend themselves, basically you just win the case automatically.
4. You're not involving Singtel for fun. Till they've paid you, the copyright can be argued NOT to be sold to Pierce, and as a result they should not resell the photos. That's why you can demand Singtel take off the photos. If they don't, simply sue them for copyright infringement
Oh that pierce teo also from cs ? Issit the same person ? . I heard that someone from this address 103 McNair Road singapore 328567 also engage photographer to run that singtel project. And pierce teo wants the invoice to be mail to that address. When ask him for company name , he dont feel like to answer.Or someone try to be funny, making use of other ppl address to do busniess ? Well.... Thats what I heard.

iirc theres some place in singapore portals where u can expose pple and they will be made known to the whole community in 1 night. and u get 1k replies in a few hours.
dun say i teach u one.
Unless there is concrete proof and evidence ... some of these statements above can be damaging to the other party as well ...
good luck hunting him.
I like to add. These type of payment are hard to get back but not mission impossible. First step get them to knowledge that you are asking for payment. Which you have already done. Then tell them if they do not pay you, you are going to Small Claim. Then go to small claim. Make sure you add all the travel costs, stationary costs, phone bills and any other bills related in order to get for your payment into the claim. Make sure you do these in one year time, as any non payment (under $5000.00) not file to small claim by one year period is not valid for small claim. There no need for lawyer in small claim, so it should be the best solution for you. But hey if you hire a lawyer put that cost in the claim as well
Also copies of your invoice help as well. As long you can prove the pictures are yours, that you provide a service to them there should be no problem to claim payment from them. The worst case could happen is that they declare they are bankrupt no money to pay
