We don't get them often but when we do... it sucks.

We did a 3 piece sectional. Got 1/2 down, COM. She called us before the check came back to warn us she wrote it from an old account. By all appearances she has plenty of money. Shes young-ish with 3 pre-teen children.

The family is moving from a nice house to a really, really nice house in another city. Her excuse is her world is upside down. Moving, Changing banks, Kids changing school and now shes away in another state.

None of that gets me mad, mistakes happen and I'm sure shes good for it. BUT if I wrote a craftsman or business owner a bad check I would make every effort to show up at their business the next day with cash in hand. Its been a week. The check is in the mail.

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

You received 1/2 down - is that the check that came back - have you delivered the sectional yet ?
Anyway new recover for the new house - makes sense  - they are probably just absent minded - it will be paid in full and turn out to be a customer that recommends a 1/2 dozen new customers.
 
I do work for a local company that has used me over 35 years and some of the office people have become close friends.  The company is doing badly - selling off equipment, laying off employees.  The last two checks took 4 months to get to me. I don't think they will fold but who knows.  Do I continue to work for them knowing any day they could close their doors.  These are friends but I can't risk doing repairs and not get paid.  Tough positions to deal with - all part of the fun for small business'

Seeing she called says something about her. I think if she was a stiff she wouldnt have bothered calling. Moving and such is hard on some people it strains their life, especially with children.

I didn't make that clear. Yes the sectional is finished and delivered. The bad check is for the final payment.

I've had similar situations.

I firmly believe that she has every intention of making good on her final payment.

BUT..........I also believe that the story about writing the check on the wrong account was merely a ploy to buy some time.

Glad it worked out well. I was in a sales training class many years ago and the question was asked, "When is the sale complete?" The answer the instructor gave was "When the check clears."
