More on the deadbeat client

February 24th, 2012 at 03:04 pm

So since last Monday was a holiday, the post office didn't deliver the certified mail from deadbeat client until yesterday. I was at work, so there was a note in my door that I'd have to pick it up at PO.

I did that this morning, and found he'd sent me a check, not a money order. So he may try to stop payment on it once he found out/finds out i complained to his wife's sales manager about her nonpayment of debt. Or not. I really don't know this guy. I deposited it immediately this am after getting it but i guess will have to wait a few more days to see if the check clears. If it doesn't, then my bank will probably charge me $25 or so for the stop-payment order.

I had complained to the sales manager last Friday after getting a nasty note from them saying they were suing me for $1,000 for violating the fair debt collection act.

Not sure where that would get him if he stopped payment, since his bank would also charge him to do that, plus I'd still want my money. Surely it would be easier to just pay me the $50???

After all the drama, aggravation and threats of lawsuit over such a small debt, a part of me feels it would be very satisfying to haul this guy's ass into small claims court, just to teach him a lesson.

    What would happen if you went to their bank and cashed the check there next time? I hope your check clears and this can go away. Smile

    In some state, you are allow to sue x times of the check that was bounced. I read your past blogs; it seems that you have enough paper work to support you case to get $50 back plus other fees that you incurred from them for not paying on time, such as $25 stop-payment order.

    I am just amazed that someone would act this way. I hate that you have had to deal with this especially over just $50. He is one of the worst deadbeats the way I see it. Hope the check clears and you can be finished with this mess!

    This is just how some people handle their business. Try to get as much as they can for nothing, and unfortunately it works a lot of the time. I would file a small claims against him. If he doesn't show up,you win, and there will be a record of his ill behavior in the court records, so someone else thinking of working with him, would be able to see that.
