In a related story.....We just landed a huge landscape installation job. To the tune of $230,000. Got a check yesterday for $75,000 down. I got home and was about to go to the bank when I realized that the check was written wrong. In the numbers area, it said 75,000. But in the written area, the client accidentally wrote "Seventy Five Dollars". That sucked.

It all turned out good. Customer re-wrote the check this morning. But talk about a big mistake! Gotta watch those checks! LOL.
Don't the banks go by the written area? Good thing you caught it.
