They're not slimy at all...they are just having a hard time paying a
"pretty penny" for a nice looking website.  I just have to do some
convincing.  Thanks to everyone for their posts...I'm good...

The link I sent earlier includes some pages with examples of "working"
scripts. However I would still say that the way to prevent them from
your work without authorisation is to use traditional business processes
tell them quite simply that the work remains your property until such a
as they have paid for its use. There is a legal system built up around
protecting your rights to show your client work without them

If the client are *that* slimy that they would consider stealing your
then you might want to question whether it is worth working for them at

Good luck with it!
