    Does anyone have a good simple collection notice letter I could send out? I have 2 customers that owe me back money for over a month now and neither has called me back on my messages to let me know what's going on and don't answer when I call. I'm hoping with a simple letter I could collect. I hate getting ripped so if at all possible I think it's only fair on my part that I do all I can ( within reason ) to get my pay for work done. It's not that much, but it's just the principle of it!

    This drought has really got me anxious about these 2. It's not too much but does anyone have a letter they could copy or attatch? Just trying to save time and u guys probably have something more tried and true than I would come up with myself.

    I've never mailed anything, I go knock-knock on the door. Never stepped off the front porch yet, without payment in full. Only had to do it twice, but each time was a pleasant conversation, usually the customer just 'forgot to send it', or 'wont get paid until next week, but if I write you a check....'. Sure, I'll hold a check, for as long as it will take me to get to the bank.

    i know what your going through. i have one customer that i can never reach and to the moment owes me 225.00. @25 a cut. I just mailed them an invoice, and if they don't pay within a week or two i'm sending a final notice saying that i am going to stop cutting the grass until i receive payment. its frustrating...

    Do a search on it. I ran across a great one a while ago. I made a note when I need it I will go back to it.

    Good luck
