    the term street justice!! This is the only way to get paid!!! Just don't do anything criminal. The guy that built my home filed and I just keep find him and hounding him for the money that I'm out. Well all I do is remind him, in private, of what I'm capable of doing to him physically if he doesn't pay. j.k. It seems to be working, I have been paid about 25% of what I'm owed so far and the other 50 unhappy homeowners have yet to hear from him! morale of the story.. Be a pain in the ass and remind him of what you can do to him, off the record of coarse!. If you are less confrontational that I, maybe you should take the others advice and kiss your money good bye. Seriously though, I will collect money for you if you give me half of what I collect.

    You better be careful after he has filed he is protechted by federal law (The one you are breaking) if he reported you it would be big trouble for you.

    Hey man I feel your pain!! I just found out a hotel we service filed chapter 11 bankruptcy...two contract payments up in smoke unless I get lucky.

    I did get good info on their situation (my situation too) from their website. Fortunately they are big enough that they felt they needed to explain what the H@#$ was going on. At least I feel informed.

    Its a waiting game...sorry man.
