This is becoming a nightmare. I hired a developer to do some work for me back in September. He has been paid in full plus extra. A couple of weeks ago he asked me to end the contract and I refused so he ended it himself. I still do not have a finished product. What recourse do I have? I have talked to odesk and though apologetic they seem un willing to escalate this...

Hi, in this casem you should contract your freelancer and discuss about it then tell him you will provide him low start review if he dont come back and finish the task. i hope he will come back otherwise give him a review.

Uh, why would you pay in full before receiving your product? Pay 25% if anything upfront and the other 75% after source is delivered.

Is to never pay the full 100% upfront. Being in business, and also having to work to keep that operating myself, I do charge 65% upfront as a contractor. When I do hire others, I often pay them a 30 to 40% upfront fee (because I understand the fear of not getting paid for work) but never pay 100% upfront. Unless, that contractor is proven responsible and provides some guarantee on money back.
