brm1109 One of my favorites was when a contractor called me to pick up trash at a kitchen remodel he did. We loaded the trash and then the guy (who I never met before) says "oh I forgot the money I will send you a check". I told him I needed to get paid then and to go to the mac machine. The guys says no that he will mail the check, and says really cocky "the homeowners are on their way so just take it".
You know what happened, I dropped the entire load in the driveway and as I pulled away I could see the guy just scratching his head.

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.

She was about to close on it, so the check was FedEx next day..
Probably not one of my finer moments.

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

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.

G 3 I never trust verbal agreements. Written contract for starters, and at least 1/2 down or I don't do the job.

Never got paid BUT felt better.

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!
