1. That sucks; happened to my parents once. Except instead of an interior designer, it was a contractor. Not to mention he was in the process of finishing a family friend's house. Needless to say, a month after he got the down payment, he disappeared and has yet to put the finishing touches on our friend's house This was in 2005.
