    Do they have the same customers?

    Start knocking on doors telling them you haven't been paid.

    As many times as I've heard this name on here, I can't believe there is anybody left for him to screw over.

    Don't get me started on the SIMA thing.

    Being a old guy Google covers an inquiry using the internet in my world. I guess I should have said I Binged him.:laughing:

    I am still tired. :p


    One thing I don't get is why don't people do some research before going out and subbing for other companies? I do complete background searches on tenants and they are only capable of getting behind a couple of grand if I am not paying attention. Yet these guys are getting screwed out of thousands even tens of thousands. Most these companies people complain about have a long history of screwing subs over.

    I have D&B's done on all my commercial accounts ( I Binged it for you..http://www.bing.com/search?q=d&b&form=DLRDF8&pc=MDDR&src=IE-SearchBox ) , for resi's I'm more lax but I'm also not out big dollars. It also helps having a good friend that has a lawyer wife to send out a nasty-gram if needed.

    Sounds like the same scammer down in Va. Perfect Cut Grounds Maintenance LLC under the name of Nick Lopez. Owes many subs thousands since last winter. Never shows up in court but the stupid judgment doesn't pay us! He knows how to work around the legal system to scam the subs. Now we're working on a secret mission to get him out of his business and pay us the monies that we all have families to feed. He'll be on the most wanted fugitive list soon.

    Not so
    If defendant fails to show they loose there case

    Does he have to pay you, no

    You will first get an option to appeal the case
    If nether party does , it is sent to collection

    Does he have to pay yet? no, and he never has to
    Unless

    You go after it
    You then file again with the judge who presided over the case,
    A" notice of entry and docketing of judgement "
    Does he have to pay yet. Nope

    He will then give you a "writ of execution"
    That will command the sheriff to satisfy said judgement

    Now does he pay.
    Not yet

    You can now have the sheriff seize it out of any and all of their bank accounts

    Or you can go after their wages.

    Been there, done that.
    I took it out of there personal savings accounts he never did pay me, I took it

    Interesting concept that I'm not aware of. Have to look into that and see if it can be done. I'll be forwarding this to all the subs on my end that he owes. I appreciate your input!

    I sued in civil court, every steep costs money, but if you win you get it from the defendant
    I sued For 8k and won

    Of course I won or I couldn't get the money

    Ps the writ is good for 85days then you have to file it again
    And the judgment stays on the books for 10 years
    Or until it is satisfied .

    Contractor doesn't pay

    I commented on this exact same topic in another thread. If you know the contractor or person is not going to pay or show up, go to your state's court website and look for self-help page. Do the work yourself and save some money. A lawyer told me he would take my case but charge me $6,000 another one told me he would charge me 25%. It is a PITA that has been going on since March, but if he doesn't respond by Monday the 24th he has an arrest warrant.
