You've already answered your own question. Why continue scrambling after someone who is not a real client?

Corporate/commercial jobs come in three types: the ones you do for the money, the others you do for the new or interesting or envelope-pushing experience, and the more rare bird, the ones in which both great project and great money converge.

Know what your own motives are for accepting a job, know which category the job falls into, and then stick to what you have committed to, through the tough times, and then you will sleep well at night. And you won't have to listen to your own head trash, by either second-guessing yourself or blaming the client for the outcome.
