    Website dev gone awol

    Hey all,

    I am from Australia and had a developer from the UK help me with my ecommerce for my business and he did a great job, was very responsive and delivered quality work.

    So happy with his work, In January i paid him to build me a hobby website which cost me 750 AUD and since he has just gone awol, doesnt reply and have no way to get in contact with him.

    Is there anything i can do or have a just been ripped and need to count my losses?

    It's possible something happened to him (tragic or serious), where he cannot respond, and anyone who is family or friends have no idea he was doing work for you. Such is the life of a Freelancer, where it's only a one person business.

    I would keep trying, and especially try to find any friends of his, or other businesses that he did work for.
