More details to this question:
I was providing consulting services for misc. not defined, odd engineering jobs for almost 2 years.. I was compensated based on number of hours worked and submitted invoices monthly using agreed fixed hourly rate. The non-payment of my final invoices is customer revenge because I quit.
