Delinquent paying customer

Postby eurotuner » November 20th, 2019, 5:50 pm

So just over a year in business, I now have a delinquent customer, run around for payment. Spoke to a lawyer and she made me write him a email (using her words) mind you I've wrote him several emails. To add insult to injury he has contacted me to do FURTHER WORK, when he has not cleared his previous bills. Wanted to know what y'all had to recommend, OR those who were in similar position, what did you do. Thanks

Lawyer needs to issue a pre-action protocol letter on how her client is going to sue to recover the unpaid funds. No email business. Official stamp from the attorney office, delivered in his hand or by registered mail with receipt. I find it weird that your lawyer telling you to write emails. Emails not official enough for some people. Who knows if he even got the emails, or if they're in in junk folder, or the account just taking up cloud space.

Inform him that you're unable to continue to provide him with a service unless he clears his outstanding account. Failing to do so once it's worth it initiate legal proceedings

I would tell you to hit him where it hurts the most but clearly he doesn’t have a heart and has balls of steel.

There’s nothing you can do but offer up yourself for more abuse.

Do NOT do additional work believing that if you don't the client will make things more difficult for you...that ship has already sailed.

They need to show good faith by paying you the outstanding balance or at least trying to work out a payment plan.

How alyuh does get in these situations though?

You have to understand when dealing with trini, make it clear they need to pay first.
No if, but, or maybe.

If you sure you have your lawyer letter, you could threaten to post him up on facebook.
But only threaten at first.

You don't want to end up like this man.

What were the terms of payment on the invoice?
How long has this payment been outstanding?

This... and if he don't listen, do this:

If you write them on your own, when it reaches court it shows that you was being reasonable and patient before taking court action. The guidance from the attorney to write the letter is good so that nothing in the letter/email is used against OP if or when it reaches court

If the delinquent fails to respond to you after appealing in a private capacity, the attorney steps in.

That is the classic rollover bill method
If you start the new work you will probably get paid for the old job near the end of the new job.
Very common ploy used by certain % of the population.

you can do new work only if old bill is settled with interest, and new work is paid for before job commences.
letting them know if job exceeds payments, work is going tot stop until rectified.

Sounds like a certain Chinese company operating in Trinidad, owing a few companies money for works done when they were fired off a job, to this day they still owe and were friking bold face and arrrogant enough to approach the company again for a quote on another job, and when asked about the outstanding balance had the audacity to say” that’s not important”...

Delinquent paying customers are often caused by the business owner's disposition.

If he responded to your email claiming liability,you have a good case, also depends on the amount owed,I was once told that anything under 100k doesn't make sense to go to court for,also note there is a four year period if you don't get your monies consider it a loss.

This is what happens when the Chinese hire Trinidadians.

Most ppl I know just laugh at pre-action protocol letters. Them thing iz only for corporations and rich ppl who can afford to spend years in the courts paying expensive lawyers.

Business disputes are more likely to be solved by negotiation.

Op ,What did you do for him? Was he satisfied? Did he sign for receiving the work? How much is involved? Does he acknowledge the debt? Did he give a reason for not paying?

Emails are official .

Pre Action letters are waste of time.

Get a bailiff .

If you take bailiff action, make sure to dot your I's and cross your T's. The bailiff takes instruction from you and you sign the order or warrant. Make sure you have proof and acknowledgement of the debt . If you do it wrong you can open yourself to problems. Get a GOOD bailiff. Some are real traps.

^^

What problems ?
Like what ?
Bailiffs always win .

No judge going to hear any HYMC case against a bailiff .

They are licensed .

Edward Soon is the man.

Tres little poco "advice" - you cannot break and enter .
You need to be "invited" into his home or office etc.
And walk with a Policeman - Bailiff will advise .
And negotiate Mr B fees , up front .

May you ride with force on Sultan's camel :fadein:

Dont take on redvevo stupid advice. Judges now are freaking up people who feel they could hire gangster bailiff to go and take whatever they want.

Sometimes simply threatening to post up the unpaid Bills on fb or in the newspapers will make the person pay you.


How much $$$ they owing u?

^^ that's the problems I was talking about. Wrong procedure Next thing you end up paying him instead. Edward soon is a GOOD bailiff . There are some that don't care about law and end up putting you in hot water because they act on your instruction ,so you are liable. I know a policeman who is before the courts for a levy gone wrong. He was the former head of the bailiff assn.
