    Do nothing except learn from it mate. If you had something in writing then I am sure you could invoice him for wasting your time.

    I did a leaflet drop a year or so back, and one call I got was from a bloke that had a cleaning company specialising in deep/end of tenancy cleans. But the only bit he didn't do was the outside windows, so that's where I would come in. So out of the blue he called me a week later and organised for me to come and do a house in 3 weeks time. I put it in the diary. 3 weeks came and he text to cancel. Not sure if it was the night before or on the day, but I remember it was very short notice. Never heard from him again.

    I'll never put myself out there for another company like that.
