    Well one of my customers moved on me w/o tellin me... haha how low. the bill is $270 im not sure where he went but has this happened to anyone? how did u track them down. my cousin well he can find these things out he is a undercover agent for a certain government thing haha i will leave it at that... but rather than bugging him what other methods have you used? i didnt know if the local authorities may be able to help or not.. and how much does it cost? of course that will go on the bill and maybe some lawyer fees and whatever else he wants.. but yea this was sooo pathetic.

    thanks in advance.. Lance

    Lance... My wife is a bill collector. It helps to have her around when things like this happen or you have a slooow paying customer. She is a very top rated collector and many company's use her for her services. If you would like I can give you her email. Maybe I cna get her to give you OR anyone else on here a discount $$$$ KH

    www.olddebts.com can find them and bug them to pay you for about $25. Seems well worth it to me. They utilize the National Change Of Address (NCOA) database.

    Maybe yes, maybe no...especially if they're deadbeats and owe everyone and their brother money.
