    Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

      No lol. It was a local home owner got my number from the phone book.
      I have another check from them that they post dated.
      Cleared there sewer on 12/12. 30 day warrantee unless sewer freezes up
      Froze up on 12/20 septic line only 2 feet under ground hit -35 that week
      Being the nice guy that I am. Said line was frozen no warrantee as stated but I'll only charge you half price. So I have this check on hold to be deposited today. Wonder if this will bounce too.

        Is it an actually bounced check. Like the SOB is dodging your calls etc?

        I have only had one. Yes you guessed it, Jason Baker of Winslow Maine writes bad checks.

        I have had I'm guessing 10 bounced checks but the customer always made good on them the same day I called. Some have even called me before I even knew. Usually wrote check from the wrong account, or husband withdrew with out telling the boss etc. Always just an honest mistake and they made good asap.

        I did give one old lady a month to pay as I suspect her ,pill head live in/looser grand son, Stole her money.

          I'm sure it's probably a mistake over spent on Christmas shopping. I just called and got answering machine. I'm sure they may be out. So I'll give them till Monday to call. I will deposit the other check Saturday. If that bounces. I'll be calling the sheriff to hall them into court. I'm sure it was an honest mistake.

            The Home owner called back. It was a mistake . Her husband wrote the first check and forgot to write it down in the balance part of the check book Thinking he had more money went Christmas shopping.
            They are mailing me a money order today and say the other check is OK to deposit.

              Thats why I mentioned that. 3 times out of 5 it has something to do with the husband. I've even done it. Candy was not impressed

                don't feel bad, i've gotten 3 over the years and all were made good eventually

                they were from 2 attorneys and 1 doctor
                between the 3 of them it totaled less than 1 thousand dollars. you would think they could manage their money a little better.

                i even did a job for a customer who's signature is on our currency. i knew his money was good

                    Re: It finally happened after 4 years

                    In my first year I had 3 bad checks. Two were paid by credit card over the phone after I called them. The other one wrote a check from an account that was closed for a year and would not answer phone. We have a bad check department that works with the public defenders office in Broward County. After filling a complaint with them they have gotten half of my money from the deadbeat. It seems to work but it has been over 10 months.
