crappy leads

Anyone else get crappy leads? I did a vacant lot that the home owner called said she lived out of state and needed the items picked up. 6 yards and i billed her for it.. I called, emailed, text for a month nothing.. comes out the person that called was just a neighbor and had no intent paying me.. Would you place a lein on the property still? I got hold of the home owner and she said some neighbor was going to take care of it..
When i got his # from her it was the same guy even thou he lied about it.. makes me want to find a trailer full of tires and dump them in his driveway.

I never start a job without a signed estimate from the responsible party or if I get a funny feeling I may even ask for full payment up front. A vacant lot clean up agreed upon over the phone would have required full payment up front for me!

Ha! Had this happen to me Many many years ago. 3 in the morning went to the vacant lot next door to the non payeeing prick and dumped 3 dead d**r (roadkill), 4 raccoons and a possum. Damn things stunk terrible and had to wash the trailer 2-3 times.

Never got paid BUT felt better.

We dumped a whole trailer full of debris on the front lawn of an A2Z property when they decided not to pay us over dust on vents.

I never trust verbal agreements. Written contract for starters, and at least 1/2 down or I don't do the job.

I still remember that story you told me,, i told the girls in the office and they laughed for days..When homestar didn't pay me a ac install, the office girls said lets do what Hack did and go take the unit back..Almost did it. But i called the Realtor and told her i was coming to get the unit because of none payment..

She was about to close on it, so the check was FedEx next day..

I would bill the home owner and the neighbor who called. Hell lien both their properties if you have to just to make a point. Or like others have noted drop something off in the lot.

I wouldn't waste any more time on this one and I would get on to making more money.

auto pay

im pretty good at getting payments, My website allows online payments and money transfers if you have wells fargo.. I would lover to dump tires in the yard but its a nice upcoming neighborhood and its not fair to the other people around it.

Ill just take it as a lost to my CPA and tell the IRS to bad.
