Bingo.

This happened a few years ago.  I had a client in Alaska (I could probably stop there and that would be enough) who screwed me out of a little over $30,000 in billing.  I did the work.  He can't pay the invoice and never will be able to.  He's a crooked businessman and owes so much to so many people that I'll never see anything and have given up thinking I ever might.  I lost the value of the materials but I also lost the value of a lot of hours that I could have been doing productive work for some other client who actually intended to pay for professional services.  I was able to write off my hard costs.
