    i know how you feel... i have about 2,500 out as on now and doubt i will see a penny.I too have gone through the motions of calling, writing,etc........ Next year i will budget a set % of profit for this kind of loss. If i get stiffed, it won't be such a suprise.

    I don't have any out, except for one small one. It was done as a favor for a friend of a friend. The guy managed an apartment complex, and I just did one of the lots. No big deal, I did it for $60. But, then I couldn't get paid. Then I talk to the new manager of the place, and he says that the guy did that to other contractors, as well. I have called, and called, with no result. I know where the little A$$ lives, and I can't wait for the next storm this winter. I know I can push a BIG pile, and I am gonna put it right in his driveway!! That is what I would do to those clowns.

    I also have about $2500 still out. Its from a long time customer who pays well but pays slow, I am sure I will get paid.

    We never let anything go past 60 days!!! I don't care if they are your cousin!!! there is no such thing as a free services!! Time to send a certified letter saying if you have not paid by such an such date, After said date we have no futher option but to have our collection lawyer start the process of filing all needed paper work to collection on said due money's owned to us!! you will be then charge the outstanding balance of all open Bill's plus all lawyer fees and court cost!!! We will be also filing a lien on all properties owned by you!!!

    if that don't work do this
    pull out your 45 and threaten to shoot his family in their knee caps first and than him, Go old school Moffia style on his butt Thumbs Up

    The Hilton in Baltimore still owes me $1400 from February of 2010. They filed for bancruptcy and it's all tied up in the system. I have a feeling it'll be a while before I see anything from it...if I ever do.
