Similar to other accounts here, Heather hired me to do design work for her back in 2012 when I was first starting out as a freelancer, and she never paid me. | It was a book layout project called Brillionaire, some sort of diet plan she apparently stole from a nutritionist. It was a short-turn project for which I had worked through an entire weekend, and once she had a mostly finalized version, she disappeared. After several attempts to reach her, she responded with an attempt to work a deal where she would pay me once she had sold x number of copies of her book. I told her this wasn’t acceptable and she agreed to pay within x number of days. Of course, she never did, and continued to ignore me, except on the occasions when I caught her by surprise and she would again promise to pay, but then never did. She always pretended not to know what was happening and had any number of excuses, like her accountant had screwed up, etc. etc. | Heather’s demeanor is always jovial and clueless. This is her game. She is an opportunist, a liar and a fraud. She sucks off of people and intentionally uses them to steal their work. She then sells the work and makes money off of it. It wasn’t a large sum of money, so I eventually gave up and wrote her off. I found the book layout on my hard drive today and thought I’d see what old Heather Catania was up to, and now I see multiple reports that she has ripped off several other struggling artists, designers and creatives. Be warned.
