I submitted my work on time 5 days ago, and the client still hasn't paid me. It was a fixed price job, and I kind of needed the money to pay rent. We agreed that after I submitted my work, her company would hire someone to proofread it, and will pay me 2 days later, I thought that maybe they don't work on weekends, but now it's tuesday, and I'm starting to worry.  I actually sent her a message on Saturday asking about when can I recieve my payment, and she didn't answer, she was quite the active one before I submitted my work though.Does anyone know how long should I wait on till I contact her again? She had a nice feedback so I took this job without hesitating, I just hope that this whole thing doesn't turn out to be a ripoff.

It is only Monday here in the US and 2 hours ago when you posted this it was only only noon on the East Coast. Where is your client located? If they are in UTC -5 then it is just Monday morning/early afternoon. You need to consider the time zone differences and that they probably do not work on weekends.
