    I have a customer that owes me $90 from March. I have mailed her about 3 invoices since then, and probably 3 phone messages. I need to be more aggressive collecting money. She has never given me her email address at her workplace, but I found it on the internet.

    Would YOU send an invoice by email to her workplace? Opinions please.

    no, I wouldn't. next time you are in her area, stop by in person. it will put her on the spot, and force her to give you a reason as to why she isn't paying. it's easy to duck paying a bill when you don't have to actually face the person. show your face to her, and let her know you mean business.

    I would not. Do as Jodi suggested...show up at her door and ask for your money. Maybe a hit of turning the account over to a collection agency might help. Be proper about the whole matter.
