hey guys. i am supposed to be doing a job for this guy. the job is 75,000 dollars if not more. i get 1/3 down up front. however i went to his house tonight to go look at the job with him and he wasnt home even though his truck was in the garage. you look in the house, the outside of the house, and you wonder where he is gonna be able to pull 75,000 + from. i tried calling the number supplied to me (home number) and got one of those number is temporarily out of service deals. the guy gave me his cell number cause he had mentioned about the home number. but i am just wondering if i should maybe do a credit check on him just to make sure i dont get burned. do any of you guys do that on big jobs to make sure you get paid? the guy is a builder by the way. i work for another builder who does a lot of work and is well known through the area. i asked this guy if he had ever heard of my present customer and he said no. so i am kind of worried here. first time i worked for this guy he paid no problem. but what do you guys do with big jobs? i am really thinking credit check. and then how do i do that?
